Unsane Streaming New Single “The Grind”

As “Sterilize,” the eighth album by NYC noise rock trio Unsane, bulldozes towards release at the end of the month, today a new single titled “The Grind” comes online.

Closing a five-year gap since the 2012 release of the Alternative Tentacles-issued “Wreck” LP, Unsane makes a vicious return with “Sterilize,” a record that recalls the most defining elements of the band’s seminal albums.

Of “The Grind,” Unsane guitarist/vocalist Chris Spencer declares: “This is the drum crusher we’ve been looking forward to doing live! A song about living to the fullest while you’ve got the chance.”

German folk metal act Finsterforst posted an album preview for the band’s forthcoming third full length LP “Rastlos.” The album is scheduled for a November 23, 2012 release through Napalm Records.
