CONNOISSEUR: Oakland Beatdown Stoners Cough Up ‘Your Ass Is Grass’ Official Video; Split LP With TRAPPIST Out Now On Tankcrimes

Oakland’s most baked moshlords CONNOISSEUR have exhaled an official video for ‘Your Ass Is Grass’. The track is found on the band’s Cross Faded split LP with Los Angeles’ TRAPPIST, a lethal convergence of fastcore, sludge, powerviolence, and underground hardcore punk, out now on Tankcrimes.

Ni Dubhghaill commented about the EP: […]
