GRIEVER + Decibel

"A massive skate bowl/melting pot of melodic punk, dissonant hardcore, emo straight from the basement of the '90s and melancholic post-punk."
–Decibel

The newest Griever track, "The Tie That Grinds," is now streaming here via Decibel Magazine.

The song appears on new album Our Love Is Different, out February 24th on Vitriol Records.

Consisting of two members of former Deathwish Inc hardcore act Lewd Acts, the San Diego band bashes out a gruff, driving, bittersweet racket that nods to their local Swami Records garage punk scene as well as to the Melvins/Floor school of transcendent sludge.

In the words of Decibel's Kevin Stewart-Panko, Griever's sound is "a massive skate bowl/melting pot of melodic punk, dissonant hardcore, emo straight from the basement of the '90s and melancholic post-punk."

Our Love Is Different is the band's first full length. It follows an EP, Inferior, also on Vitriol Records. Our Love Is Different was recorded by Griever frontman Alex Jacobelli, with Tommy Garcia, and was mastered by Nick Zampiello (Converge, Coliseum) at New Alliance.

Griever, live:
