With roots firmly planted in the Twin Cities, ROT is a quintet that has shared the stage with such fellow hardcore bands as Kublai Khan, Defeater, and Orthodox. The quintet's sound leaves no room for misinterpretation; these folks keep things lean and mean.
Formed in 2018, ROT is comprised of musicians who also play in such groups as Nanashi, While God Sleeps, and War Prayer. The last time we heard from ROT was through last year's Nothing's Changed EP, their debut release.
Showing and proving that they're an outfit that is on the grind, no matter what the lockdown might suggest, ROT is returning to record stores this month with ...As One, a 10-track LP that No Echo has the pleasure of premiering for you below:
The ...As One sessions were co-produced, and co-engineered by Arrold Walton and Jake Watson, the vocalist and bassist, respectively, of ROT. Arrold also handled the mix, while Jake took care of the mastering duties. You see, we told you these guys hustled
...As One will be out tomorrow, September 4th, and can be ordered on vinyl via War Against Records. All profits from vinyl sales will be donated to The Orka Project and We Love Lake Street.
