New album to be unleashed this summer, but there’s loads of shows before that

Against The Grain has been working steadily on their forthcoming LP since the beginning of the year and will be unleashed in mid summer.  Recorded at Train A-Comin Studios in Mt. Clemens, MI by Bryan Griffin, mixed at Audiosiege in Portland OR by Joel Grind (Toxic Holocaust, Poison Idea, Coliseum, Lord Dying) and mastered by Brad Boatright (From Ashes Rise, Sleep, Off!, Pierced Arrows).
