Industrial-Rock fusion artist Grendel announce their North America tour with Striplicker, Glass Apple Bonzai, and Esoterik.
In support of their upcoming album Ascending the Abyss. Grendel will embark on a two month North America tour. Supporting Grendel on the tour will be Industrial artists Striplicker, Synthwave artist Glass Apple Bonzai, and Darkwave upstarts Esoterik.
Grendel frontman JD Tucker recently revolutionized Grendel’s sound with their 2017 album Age of the Disposable Body, demonstrating a shift away from standard Industrial, adding elements of Rock, Synthwave, Post-Punk, and Darkwave. On the upcoming release Tucker surpasses the conventions of the genre, demonstrating his composition skills with infectious hooks blended with aggressive guitars, 80s style synths and intricate yet captivating percussion. As well, Tucker has matured lyrically, exhibiting both confidence and vulnerability, while still remaining faithful to his previous, more politically critical work. VIP packages for the Ascending The Abyss Tour are available through Grendel’s Website
Ascending the Abyss will be available this summer on Metropolis Records (North America) and Infacted Records (EU).

Grendel is currently putting the finishing touches on the upcoming 2019 release, “Ascending the Abyss “, supported by a 40 date North American tour.
Striplicker sprang forth from the ashes of the smoldering wreckage of the Industrial music scene in San Francisco to disseminate its message of rebirth through destruction. gnashing vocals, pounding electronics, screaming guitars and brutal percussion create a sonic landscape that perfectly embodies existential apocalypse. striplicker shares the aural ethos of aggressive electronic rock acts like Nine Inch Nails, Ministry and KMFDM.
