90s Hardcore band GrudgeHolder announces show at Club Alchemy in Rhode Island on June 9th. The Boston natives will be sharing the stage with Sworn Enemy, Departed, Scars Of Deceit, One Less Scumbag, Held Hostage, and Built For Battle. Tickets are available for purchase HERE.
This news comes shortly after GrudgeHolder announced joining the July 27th Mansfield, MA and July 28th Wantagh, NY dates for The 2018 Vans Warped Tour. For more information on tour dates, fans can visit the band’s Facebook page HERE.
GrudgeHolder recently announced their reunion, which features original members Paul Travers (vocals), Jay Monteiro (drums) and Tom Kelly (guitar). The band is joined by newest member Marc “Mackie” Montague (bass), who was a former road crew and longtime friend of the band. You can download the bands 1999 release Amongst The Wolves via SoundCloud HERE, to check out popular songs like “Underestimate Me”, “My Way”, and “Who Will Carry The Cross”. Known for their aggressive rapid-fire vocals and hip-hop infused beats, the band is already writing new songs and they are some of the hardest tracks they’ve written to date. Fans can expect a new EP from the band this fall. Prior to the EP recording, the band will be entering the studio in June to record two cover songs for the Freedom Soundworks’ Classics vs Classics covers comp vol 2. They will be recording “Beat It” by Michael Jackson and “What’s At Stake” by Boston’s own Slapshot.
The four-piece formed as high-school teenagers in Travers’ sweaty stone basement in the Summer of 1992. Within six months they started landing opening spots for national touring acts like Pro-Pain, Nuclear Assault, Earth Crisis, Tension*, Hatebreed as well as local Boston legends Blood For Blood and NYHC icons Sick of It All, Madball, Murphy’s Law and Crown of Thornz. Due to the band’s booming fan base in the hardcore scene, they were able to land a record deal with Vulture Entertainment in 1998, who released the band’s first full length album Amongst the Wolves that same year. Despite numerous success after the album release GrudgeHolder broke up in 1999 but continued to play various reunion shows including a sold out set as official artists of the 2009 CMJ Music Festival in Manhattan, NY.
Upcoming Tour Dates:
June 9 – Providence, RI @ Alchemy with Sworn Enemy
July 27 – Mansfield, MA @ Xfinity Center for Vans Warped Tour
July 28 – Wantagh, NY @ Nikon at Jones Beach Theater for Vans Warped Tour
