ROUGH GRIND released their long-awaited debut album Pieces of Resistance worldwide on all digital platforms on Wednesday, March 4 via Inverse Records.
The Finnish heavy rockers went all out on the release day and also launched a new music video, “Only Fools Don’t Like Rock’n’roll.” The video is available below.
“Take some crunching guitars, add a boatload of clichés and top it all off with silly antics. That’s really the recipe for this song and video. Thanks and sorry, everybody,” laughs guitarist Arg, who joined ROUGH GRIND last year and also wrote “Only Fools Don’t Like Rock’n’roll.”
Even though the band is known for their sense of humor, their music doesn’t pull any punches when it comes to pointing out all the injustices that plague the modern world. And for counterbalance, their repertoire includes reflective, melodic pieces that cast an eye on the pain points of life.
ROUGH GRIND plays a unique blend of hard rock and heavy metal, where a discerning listener will pick up strong traces of old-school influences. The band has previously released three EPs, with the two latest receiving airtime around the globe.
