GRIM: a new album out late summer and a German festival appearance in September!
Three years after the incredible double performance in Mannheim (live report & gallery here), which was also the first ever overseas show of Grim, Jun Konagaya‘s project will return to Europe again this September for another festival appearance. This time Grim will play at Tower Transmissions VIII, a two day festival in Dresden, Germany on September 20 / 21, which has a very international and truly amazing line-up, that, among many others includes the duo of Lydia Lunch & Étant Donnés‘ Marc Hurtado (playing songs by Alan Vega & Suicide!), Kollaps from Australia, Moral Order from Spain, Burial Hex from the US and also Sweden’s MZ.412, who will play their one and only 2019 show here. Grim has an ever changing live line-up, but it is already confirmed that this time they will performs as a duo with Konagaya and Masahiko Okubo (a.k.a. Linekraft). Tickets are still on sale on a very friendly price, more info available at the festival’s FB event.
And as the 2016 performance followed the release of Grim’s double album Maha, out on Steinklang Industries, this one will follow yet another Steinklang release, a new album called Lunatic House, out mid-August. It will be the first Grim release on Steinklang since Maha, not counting Familiar, the extremely limited 2017 lathe cut 7″ and it will be available in several formats: CD (limited to 300 copies), digital and vinyl (150 copies on clear vinyl, 75 copies on clear vinyl with heavy black splatter and 50 already-sold-out-in-pre-orders copies on clear vinyl with heavy black and white splatter). The release is available on Bandcamp and Stenklang also released two tracks as previews:
