Seattle-based death grind faction, THEORIES, will kick of a fifteen-date North American tour next week with Wake and Vermin Womb. Slated to commence October 18th in Reno, Nevada and run through November 3rd in Victoria, British Columbia, the trek includes an appearance at this year’s Southwest Terror Fest in Tucson, Arizona.

Comments drummer Joe Axler, “We will be hitting the road with — in our opinion — two of the top of the game current grind bands around right now: Canada’s Wake and Denver’s Vermin Womb, both devastatingly sick bands. We will be debuting a handful of new songs on this tour that we’ve never toured with before, all of them going in a new direction for THEORIES; still grindy and brutal but more mature musically, focused more on intricate and driving riffs, devastating beats, and more well-rounded, all over the place vocal attack. We’re excited to watch y’all destroy the room while we play these new ones!”

THEORIES continues to grind their way into diseased hearts with the ravaging sounds of their Regression full-length, released last year via Metal Blade Records. Tracked at The Red Room and The Boiler Room with producer/engineer Derek Moree (The Sword, Pelican, Minus The Bear et al) with mixing and mastering conducted by Visceral Sound’s Scott Hull (Pig Destroyer, Agoraphobic Nosebleed), the record reaped the hails of critics worldwide.

Theories: Regression

“Regression is a honed, utterly off-the-wall experience that is a blast to listen to from both a technical standpoint, and one that’s just looking to rage…” gushed Metal Injection, furthering, “Those into death metal or grindcore will find THEORIES much akin to bands like Misery Index, Cattle Decapitation and Pig Destroyer.” Last Rites concurred, “THEORIES is a band that knows how to let an idea form, shape it, and then kill it in lieu of sewing odd parts together without envisioning what the final form will be… These are songs and grind at the same time, and that’s what puts this one on a pedestal amongst not only other grind bands at the current, but also their tech-ier, death-ier labelmates. Sleep on this at your own peril…” No Clean Singing wrote, “Regression is not only a superbly performed assault on your senses, but more importantly, one with more substance and memorable moments than you will find on most records within the genre.” Added Cvlt Nation, “get this fucking album. Put it on constant rotation at the highest fucking decibel level you can handle, and then turn it up even higher. Blow out the windows of your house and break down a few walls. Destroy a few precious objects while cursing out your loved ones. Because without a doubt, the arrival of Regression warrants such a violent outburst and response from us all.”
