San Jose deathgrind/punk practitionrs DEATHGRAVE – featuring members of Brainoil and Amber Asylum among others – will take to the streets later this week on a short but punishing Pacific Northwest run. The journey will commence on July 5th and rampage its way through nine cities upon its conclusion July 14th. East Coast dates are currently in the plotting stages. See all confirmed shows below.
DEATHGRAVE released their So Real, It’s Now debut last month via Tankcrimes. 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 currently available on CD, vinyl, and digital formats via Tankcrimes. Digital orders are available below, at where the record can be streamed in its entirety. Find physical orders at the Tankcrimes Merch Table.

Forged in 2013, DEATHGRAVE initially united as four friends with a simple need to play bleeding, belligerent, and pissed off grindcore/powerviolence in the vein of Siege, Rudimentary Peni, and Napalm Death with an Impetigo twist. Comprised of longtime scene veterans, DEATHGRAVE is Wilkinson alongside drummer Matt Thompson, bassist Fern Alberts (Amber Asylum, ex-Bird, ex-Ringwurm), and vocalist Andre Cornejo (Cyanic, ex-Bird, ex-Casket Blaster). The band has obliterated venues throughout California as well as the Pacific Northwest, Southwest, and Mexico with their pulverizing live sets sharing bills with the likes of High On Fire, Graves At Sea, YOB, Dispirit, Ghoul, Spectral Voice, Noothgrush, Undergang, Incantation, Eyehategod, Necrot, and so many more. DEATHGRAVE will bring their sonic repugnance to stages on a full US tour later this year in support of ‘So Real, It’s Now’.
