WORMROT ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM 'VOICES'; LISTEN TO NEW TRACK "FALLEN INTO DISUSE" NOW

Singaporean grindcore trio WORMROT have announced their long-awaited return with the reveal of their brand new studio album, 'Voices'.

Over five years after the band's last full-length release, 2011's 'Dirge' and the 2009 debut 'Abuse', WORMROT are back with the same intensity which put them comfortably alongside the likes of NAPALM DEATH, TERRORIZER, BRUTAL TRUTH and the rest of the grindcore elite.

Following the departure of founding member Fitri, 'Voices' introduces brand new member Vijesh on drums, who brings a fresh and fitting sound to one of the most original bands the scene has had perhaps since its inception.  Combined with Rasyid's godlike grind riffage and Arif's distinct vocals switching effortlessly between deep guttural growls and rasping screams, the band's third full-length goes far beyond expectations from a band that already can seemingly do no wrong.

WORMROT guitarist Rasyid comments: "It's been way too long; it's finally the right time to do this.  We're thrilled to finally release our most heartfelt album to date."

Check out the album teaser featuring the new track, "Fallen Into Disuse", at http://youtu.be/OpD53OncQvY

Due to be released worldwide on October 14th, 'Voices' features 20 brand new songs and is available to pre-order now on limited edition signed CD and vinyl, as well as regular CD, vinyl, and digital formats.

'GENERATION FUCKED' - TIM COMMERFORD OF RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE SLAMS POLITICAL ELITE IN NEW WAKRAT LYRIC VIDEO

Tim Commerford's new politically-charged punk rock trio WAKRAT (pronounced wôk•rat) have unveiled a new lyric video for the track "Generation Fucked", taken from the forthcoming debut album on Earache Records.

The hard-hitting and controversial video depicts the sorry state of humanity in the 21st century and the bleak future of this generation, with imagery of 9/11, the UK exiting the European Union and dangerous political elites.

Watch the new lyric video for "Generation Fucked" at http://youtu.be/8vP1NuWX4xA

WAKRAT have also announced details of their much-anticipated debut album, which is due for release on November 8th, 2016 to coincide with the US General Election.

Notorious for his infamous bass lines in RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, Commerford fronts WAKRAT on vocals and bass over a tight mix of punchy, rhythmic and dynamic punk rock, fuelled by political dissent, social commentary and an undiminished subversion and questioning of authority.

WAKRAT will make their UK live debut on Tuesday, July 26th in a one-night-only appearance at The Black Heart in Camden with all proceeds from the gig going towards the homeless charity Shelter.  Tickets are priced at £10 and are available from http://dice.fm/event/wakrat-26th-jul-the-black-heart-london-tickets

WAKRAT will also open the 27-date #MakeAmericaRageAgain tour with Tim's other band, PROPHETS OF RAGE, later this summer, meaning that Commerford will be pulling double duty.  PROPHETS OF RAGE have also promised to gatecrash the Republican Party Convention on July 19th to protest against Republican Presidential nominee, Donald Trump.

Pre-order the self-titled album, 'Wakrat', out November 8th, on CD and vinyl at http://earache.com/wakrat

'Wakrat' is also available to pre-order now on iTunes, including an instant download of "Generation Fucked", at http://bit.ly/wakrat-itunes

RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE'S TIM COMMERFORD ANNOUNCES INTIMATE LONDON GIG TO RAISE MONEY FOR THE HOMELESS

Tim Commerford's new politically-charged punk rock trio WAKRAT (pronounced wôk•rat) will make their UK live debut on Tuesday, July 26th in a one-night-only appearance at The Black Heart in Camden with all proceeds from the gig going towards the homeless charity Shelter.

Notorious for his infamous bass lines in RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, Commerford fronts WAKRAT on vocals and bass over a tight mix of punchy, rhythmic and dynamic punk rock, fuelled by political dissent, social commentary and an undiminished subversion and questioning of authority.

Commerford said: "We are gearing up to be on the offensive.  Our mission is to attack modern music and smash the grid.  Unapologetic, unrelenting, unbridled and uncensored.  Understood?"

In 2010, RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE donated all the proceeds from the Christmas #1 single to Shelter after Jon and Tracy Morter's Facebook campaign launched "Killing in the Name" to the #1 spot - toppling Simon Cowell and the X-Factor monopoly.  WAKRAT will open the 27-date #MakeAmericaRageAgain tour with Tim's other band, PROPHETS OF RAGE, later this summer, meaning that Commerford will be pulling double duty.  PROPHETS OF RAGE have also promised to gatecrash the Republican Party Convention on July 19th to protest at Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump.  WAKRAT, signed to UK-based Earache Records, will release their debut album on November 8th to coincide with the US election.

Tickets for the gig on Tuesday, July 26th at The Black Heart in Camden are priced at £10 and will go on sale tomorrow (Tuesday, July 12th) at 10am from https://dice.fm/event/wakrat-26th-jul-the-black-heart-london-tickets
