Long Island rock band Moon Tooth have announced Violent Grief Sessions, an intimate acoustic event presented by KNOTFEST.
The band will be sharing a very special performance of their recently released EP, Violent Grief: Acoustic Selections, along with a few surprises on September 24th at 6:30PM EST on KNOTFEST.com. Following the event, fans can tune into a live post-show After Party hosted by Beez, brought to you by Saison 13, a Unibroue and Megadeth Beer.
Available to stream today via Pure Noise Records, Violent Grief: Acoustic Selections is a five-track EP is comprised of brand new track “Six of Swords” and four songs from the band’s critically-acclaimed 2019 release CRUX, including previously shared “Awe At All Angles (Acoustic)”.
“Time is the only thing with a chance of washing grief away. It’s a process that can be ugly, violent and in most cases not brief,” shares John Carbone (vocals) on the meaning behind the EP title. “In order to let time do it’s work properly, a person must recognize the difference between the violence that’s necessary and the violence that’s clung to. At some point, grief is a choice. When time’s done it’s job, it’s up to us to put the hurt down.”
Machine (Lamb of God, Every Time I Die, King Crimson, Clutch) and Lamb of God’s Mark Morton worked on the pre-production of Crux. The album tells the story of the band at this crucial point where the past must die so new life can begin. The album was officially released on March 29th, 2019, and received over 100,000+ streams in its first week. It also hit the Billboard charts, reaching #13 on Heatseekers, #23 on Hard Music, #43 on Indie Label, #62 on Digital Albums, and more.
