Against The Grain: motor city mad men ‘Cheated Death’ on new album for Ripple Music

Against The Grain: motor city mad men ‘Cheated Death’ on new album for Ripple Music
Salad Days

Living up to the title of their newest record, Against The Grain have proven themselves to be true road warriors.

Blazing a trail across the US with their brand of gear-shifting, balls-to-the-wall rock, incorporating all things heavy they practically defy categorization, seamlessly blurring the lines of punk, rock, doom and thrash. After playing fifty shows in 2009 across their home state of Michigan, their self-titled debut (released that same year) garnered a serious local fan base. Introduced to touring life by Hellmouth and The Meatmen, with their intense live show nailed and energized fan base following in support close behind, Against The Grain quickly transformed into a fully-functioning road act. But it’s their soon-to-be released album ‘Cheated Death’ that’s going to truly push them over the edge. Released this February on the California-based record label Ripple Music – widely regarded as one of the world’s leading record labels for Heavy Rock, Stoner, Doom and Heavy Psych – you can rest assured that the mad men of Michigan are going to blaze a trial across the US, the world and your mind in 2018.

‘Cheated Death’ is released worldwide on 9th February 2018 on Ripple Music.
