Against The Grain

Motor City Speed Rock

Self Destructo 6

Released on February 25, 2014

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

Self Destructo Records announces the first ever vinyl release of Against The Grain’s ground breaking second album: Motor City Speed Rock. Since forming in 2009, Against The Grain has harnessed and utilized the DIY ethic that is pivotal in the underground music scene to make their mark as a force that’s to be acknowledged in the heavy music/punk rock community. Born in the predominantly blue collar city of Detroit, Against The Grain cut their teeth by playing relentlessly throughout their hometown and surrounding its states, resulting in catching the attention of notable Detroit underground icon Tesco Vee (The Meatmen, Touch & Go Records) who utilized his network and experience and took them under his wing to get their name out further into the world of underground music. Playing 100+ shows a year since their inception, they’ve been invited to play locally with Valient Thorr, Zeke, D.R.I., The Dwarves, Riverboat Gamblers and have done tours with various band across the coasts. With 2013 being their breakout year, they signed to Self Destructo Records and released their second album Surrounded By Snakes, which dramatically shifts their sound from a full on speed rock band to more stoner/doom oriented territory. Following the release, they did a three week mid/east coast run with Dallas, TX thrashers The Swingin’ Dicks, followed by a 40 date solo run of the west coast in support of the vinyl release, ending the tour by linking with The Hookers for a week and half run across the Mid West. From there, they were invited to open up locally for UK stoner legends Orange Goblin in Grand Rapids and for American doom legends Saint Vitus in Detroit. Now with the conclusion of 2013 and the completion of a US tour with notable Japanese doom pioneers Church of Misery in the books, 2014 is starting to look up for the Detroit powerhouse.
