COLUMNS: Debut Music Video for “Punching Nancy Grace”

North Carolina’s sick and twisted death/grinders COLUMNS have revealed a music video for their misanthropic anthem “Punching Nancy Grace”.

The album will be officially released in North America tomorrow via Relapse Records and was described by Metal Sucks as “carnage wrapped in chaos wrapped in torment wrapped in more carnage” and “Fuckin’ great!”

Frontman Adam Cody commented on the inspiration behind the song:“Nancy Grace holds one of the lowest positions in life. She covers the gossip of high profile court cases. Imagining her getting a hard jab to the face brings me great happiness.”

And added:

“Nancy Grace makes a living shitting out of her mouth. Columns as a whole would like to see her get punched.”

Featuring former members of cult Relapse grinders Hemdale plus current and former members of renowned death metal bands Wretched, Vehemence and Glass Casket.COLUMNS blast and shred their way through 16 tracks of premium Southern grindcore, marinated in a blistering bowl of death metal. A complete tracklisting ofPlease Explode is available below.

Additionally, COLUMNS have been added to the September 13th show at The Chop Shop for the Crowbar, Revocation, Havok Tour in Charlotte, NC. Details on the show are available HERE.
