Wormrot plays grindcore and was signed to Earache Records (UK) in 2010. Ever since Wormrot was formed in 2007, they have been doing months-long tours in the US, EU and the neighbouring Asian countries. Aside from the usual underground shows in a converted garage in Denver, a squat in Berlin or a cave in Penang, they’ve also played in festivals like Glastonbury Festival (UK), Obscene Extreme Festival (CZ), Scion Rock Fest (US), SXSW (US), Netherlands Death Festival (NL), Incubate Fest (NL), Bloodshed Fest (NL), Baybeats (SG) and many more.

Formed in early 2016, grind/powerviolence group Escuela, features female-fronted vocals from Katerina Economou, percussion by Jesse Fuentes (ex-Kill the Client, ex-Creator Destroyer, 1Fest), and guitars by Jason Eldridge (Monolith, ex-Body Without Organs) and Jackson Kovalchik (Casas).

Although the members span from different parts of the country, the band is based out of the small progressive city Ithaca, in Upstate New York, and Pittsfield, MA. Escuela has been making a name for themselves through a prolific touring schedule and releases including: a self-released EP “Non Serviam”, splits with Reeking Cross (D.C.), and Disparo! (Australia), and a forthcoming full-length scheduled for release in 2018.

Through punishingly short songs, Escuela delivers politically charged lyrics inspired by modern anxieties, unrest, and the roots of grindcore. (Source)
