Denver crust/deathgrinders Vermin Womb (who are fronted by Primitive Man's Ethan McCarthy and also feature members of Ethan's former band Clinging to the Trees of a Forest Fire) have announced their sophomore album, Retaliation, following 2016's Decline. It was recorded by former Weekend Nachos member Andy Nelson and mastered by Arthur Rizk, and it comes out September 2 via Closed Casket Activities (pre-order). Along with the announcement comes three tracks (which, combined, clock in around four minutes) that are as nasty, abrasive, and pulverizing as you'd hope. Check them out below.

Vermin Womb made their live return at Oblivion Access in Austin in May (check out pictures below) and are also gearing up to open the Blood Incantation / Full of Hell co-headlining tour, alongside Mortuous and God Is War. That includes Brooklyn Monarch on October 6. All dates are listed below.

1- Crumbling World Without Joy
