ESCUELA GRIND Returns With New Single "Always Watching You"

Embodying a stalker.

Escuela Grind has returned with a new single "Always Watching You" after some troubles earlier this year involving a former guitarist and touring manager.

The single was recorded at GodCity studio with producer Kurt Ballou (High on Fire, Cave In), comes alongside a music video directed by Zack Perez for Astral Media, and is taken from Escuela Grind's as-yet-untitled new LP set for an autumn release via MNRK Heavy.

"Most of 'Always Watching You' was written in a practice space by Jesse and Krissy, and refined during soundchecks we had over the year," said Escuela Grind vocalist Katerina Economou. "I've had this desire to write a song where I could portray the obsessive-stalker-girl archetype through lyrics for a while.

"Although not physically threatening, it's really interesting that society is so terrified of this stereotype. In 'Always Watching You', I wanted this fantastical, Nightmare on Elm Street-style imagery that was rooted in the gore and horror of death metal. Themes of parasocial relationships, anxieties from social media, and an omnipresent algorithm are strongly observed in this song and throughout the entire album."

Escuela Grind has a handful of European tour dates coming up very shortly with Rotten Sound. Get your tickets here.
