Upstate New York/Western Mass' self-proclaimed "death grind power violence" trio Escuela Grind will release new single "That Which Does Not Bend Must Break" on September 3 (pre-orders will be up on Bandcamp soon), but we're now premiering the song ahead of its official release, along with its lyric video (made by Frank Huang). It's an 80-second dose of pulverizing grindcore with an apocalyptic message, and it does justice to the genre while bringing new perspective to it.

The band says, "The highlight of the song is without a doubt the breakdown at the end. Lyrically, we were inspired by both Carl Sagan as well as a dark vision for the future of our world. Humans are capable of so much, but we limit ourselves. If it’s not willing to bend... it's gotta break. This is our warning of an apocalyptic future. We hope others pay heed."

Listen below. Escuela Grind also have upcoming tour dates, including Brooklyn's Kingsland on October 2 with Gel and Tossed Aside. All dates are listed below too.
