Brutal Australians To The Grave Drop Single and Album Details


Hella heavy Australian punishers To The Grave announced last week that they are unleashing a new album, Director’s Cuts, out February 24 via Unique Leader. They also dropped a video for single “Red Dot Sight.”

The band comment on the new album: “This is the refinement of our combined musical tastes, fuelled by our sadness and anger at the state of the world. We made the music we wanted to make without really considering how it would fit into any little genre boxes, because we knew if we loved it completely then everyone else would too. These songs are hard and heavy without being technical just for the sake of it.”

Commenting on the new single, the band add: “‘Red Dot Sight’ is about anti-vegan public figures and influencers dragging the names of activists for headlines and views. The way our media paints them as criminals and terrorists sways public perception against those wanting to do good to the point that it’s socially acceptable to treat them like sh*t.” 

For those not familiar, To The Grave have been on the scene since the release of their 2019 debut album Global Warning, and last year put out 2021’s follow-up Epilogue, a re-issue of Global Warning with bonus tracks. They’ve been gaining a following in the heavy metalcore circuit in Australia and beyond ever since.

Director’s Cuts was recorded by bassist Matt Clarke, with drums recorded live at The Brain Studios in Sydney and mixed and mastered by Lance Prenc at Prenc Audio (Void of Vision, Alpha Wolf, Polaris) in Melbourne with album photography by Animals Uncovered. 

They’ll also be going on tour in 2023 with Shadow of Intent, Enterprise Earth, and Angelmaker:
