On the heels of last year's "Crusher" EP, and recently back from European dates in Finland, Sweden, and the Czech Republic (as well as the Obscene Extreme Fest where they performed with the likes of Entombed, Brujeria, Brutal Truth and more), Washington DC/New York CIty grindcore trio Magrudergrind has announced plans to set out on a series of East Coast tour dates kicking off this September. Along for the ride will be West Coast powerviolence veterans Despise You (ex Spazz / East/West Blast Test), who themselves will be taking part in their first ever East Coast tour in support of their recently released and critically acclaimed split LP with Agoraphobic Nosebleed on Relapse Records.
Making stops in most major cities along the way from Boston to Gainesville, the tour will meet up with special guests including Floor, Suppression, Defeatist, Cannabis Corpse, Primate, Shitstorm, Asshole Parade, and will feature two stops in Florida, a state Magrudergrind has not performed in since 2009.
In addition to the dates with Despise You, Magrudergrind will also be performing at this year's Best Friends Day in Richmond, The California Discord Fest in Los Angeles and TheFest in Florida, and are currently writing material for a new full length album tentatively scheduled for release in 2012.
