Toothgrinder Announce New Album ‘I Am’

New Jersey’s Toothgrinder have announced their third album ‘I AM’. The album, produced by Matt Squire (Ariana Grande, Panic! At the Disco, Underoath), drops October 11 via Spinefarm Records.

“I AM… a mantra, a prayer, a mediation, a belief, a value, an all encompassing way of life. The title speaks of unity and presence. Becoming comfortable in one’s own skin. To endure whatever life throws at you with grace and gratitude. To love the ones who surround you and accept the things you can’t control. I AM… two of the most powerful words, for what you put after them shape your reality.

All of my life I have felt out of place, left out, a ghost, a phantom, a whisper in a sea of noise. I covered those deafening screams with abuse. Abusing others, friends, family, strangers, and most of all myself. I hurt the ones I love while still loving the one’s I hurt. I couldn’t sleep, I couldn’t eat, I couldn’t dream, I couldn’t bleed, I couldn’t breathe. I have yet to right my wrongs, but I hope to start with a song.

The anger, the tension, the narcissism, the callousness, the ego were nothing but amplified in my previous words. The despair was covered up in anger and ego, the void was filled with things, all types of things. Bright things, dark things, shiny things, needless things, but never the right thing, never the real thing.
