DEATHGRAVE: San Jose Deathgrind/Punk Unit Announces West Coast Summer Tour; So Real, It’s Now Full-Length Out Now On Tankcrimes
San Jose deathgrind/punk practitioners DEATHGRAVE will take to the streets this July on an eight-date West Coast tour. The trek begins July 17th in Chico, California and will tear its way through eight cities upon its conclusion July 24th in Sacramento, California. See all confirmed dates below.
DEATHGRAVE continues to tour in support of their So Real, It’s Now debut, released last year via Tankcrimes. Hailed by Decibel for being a, “kaleidoscopic and engrossing mix of traditional brutality and audacious weirdness,” the fourteen-track bruiser was captured at Earhammer Studios in Oakland (Necrot, Autopsy) by guitarist/renowned sound engineer Greg Wilkinson (Brainoil, ex-Laudanum, ex-Graves At Sea).
So Real, It’s Now is available on CD, vinyl, and digital formats. Digital orders are available at THIS LOCATION where the record can be streamed in its entirety. Find physical orders HERE.

Forged in 2013, DEATHGRAVE initially united as four friends with a simple need to play bleeding, belligerent, and pissed off grindcore, death metal, powerviolence, and punk grabbing elements from Siege, Rudimentary Peni, and Napalm Death with an Impetigo twist. Comprised of longtime scene veterans, DEATHGRAVE is Wilkinson (Brainoil, ex-Laudanum, ex-Graves At Sea) alongside bassist Fern Alberts (Amber Asylum, ex-Bird, ex-Ringwurm), vocalist Andre Cornejo (Cyanic, ex-Bird, ex-Casket Blaster) and the newly-acquired Clint Baechle (Owl, Isotope, Hazzards Cure). The band has obliterated venues throughout the US, Canada, and Mexico with their pulverizing live sets sharing bills with the likes of High On Fire, Necrot, Incantation, Graves At Sea, Yob, Dispirit, Ghoul, Spectral Voice, Noothgrush, Undergang, Eyehategod, and so many more.
“…a kaleidoscopic and engrossing mix of traditional brutality and audacious weirdness, razor-sharp punk-infused deathgrind riffs and dissonant noise rock detours, high velocity jabs from an orthodox stance and crafty sucker punches you never see coming…” – Decibel
“Incorporating crust and never shying away from a slower doom break or a straight-up hardcore stomp, DEATHGRAVE‘s latest effort So Real, It’s Now is definitely more unique than the legions of post-Assück or Napalm worship. The Autopsy influence looms large, as do names like Grief, Doom, Siege, Spazz, and much more across the under thirty minutes and fourteen-tracks.” – Revolver
“…a wonderfully relentless slab of punky death grind that is as fun as it is furious” – Last Rites
“You can smell the bile, taste the puke, and love every second of it.” – Metal Wanderlust
