- The Kill are set to release a split with Captain Cleanoff in 2012 (thats old news).
- Noisear have just started recording their part of a 3 way split with The Kill and Antigama (fuck yeah boyyy).
- Captain Cleanoff are currently in the middle of recording 18 new tracks for a full length!
You know, you'd already know this if you followed us on Facebook.
The grind hit mix of summer, turn those summer blues around with some real party tunes!
At AusGrind's recent annual shareholders conference (read: a messy drunken grindparty for two) the AusGrind board move to initiate a new social welfare initiative aimed at increasing the grindparty of our fellow Australians over this summer period.
It is in this spirit of charity that we are proud to present AusGrind's Hits of the Summer 2011 - a FREE digital compilation featuring 21 tracks of premium grindparty tunes from some of Australia's greatest grindcore, powerviolence and crossover bands - not to mention some awesome underground gems you might not yet know.
AusGrind's Hits of the Summer is great gift for your grind loving mother on Christmas Day. Please burn this mix to a CD, to place in your shitty car stereo, boost the Treble to 11 and let those buff Gaga-loving circle jerks know who's boss.

Got any more to add?
Glenno has been creating brilliant illustrations for the Australian underground music scene for countless years. I can remember when I joined on to Grindhead Records back in 2005, Glenno was always our go-to man for incredible artwork at an obscenely reasonable cost.
This man has the utmost respect of the Australian underground for good reason, having worked with the likes of Captain Cleanoff, Blood Duster, Agents of Abhorrence, Ebolie, Grindhead Records, 4 Dead, Pisschrist, Volatile, Pure Evil Trio, the Sydney underground zine staple Unbelievably Bad, Obscene Extreme festival, Slaughterfest, East/West Death Grind fest, Monster Sessions, Hard-ons, Meatlocker, Insect Warfare, Electric Wizard, Pod People, Municipal Waste, Willie Nelson, Black Sabbath and countless others.
Keep up the great work pal! Love from your AusGrind pals.
Entitled Pantless Carnage, the tracks veer through sludged out grindcore, stoner rock and punk bringing to mind the likes of early Blood Duster, LOG and Captain Cleanoff. The group features members of Serious Beak, Adrift for Days, Kill A Celebrity and Ebolie.
While the physical release is limited to just 25 copies, you can download the entire album for free from their bandcamp site.
The group is expected to release their debut album in late 2011. You can catch them in Melbourne on July 16 at Yah Yah with Michael Crafter, Party Vibez, Fat Guy Wears Mystic Wolf Shirt and Lazerface.
