Ground announce new album, share single and music video
Ground features members of Waking The Cadaver
Official press release:
New Jersey-based Ground will unveil their fifth LP, Habitual Self-Abuse, through Hibernation Release in October, today issuing its cover art, track listing, preorders, and more as Decibel Magazine premieres a video for the lead single, "Indurated Juvenescence."
Habitual Self-Abuse was engineered in March 2022 by AJ Viana at AJ Viana Productions in Hulmeville, Pennsylvania, with additional editing by Tiago "Canadas" Carvalho. The album was mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Obituary, 200 Stab Wounds, R.A.M.B.O.) and completed with cover art by Tom Maher/Skull Bastard Art.
The band's Mike Mayo states:
"'Indurated Juvenescence' is about missing out on your youth because you're too wrapped up in trying to work through undiagnosed/misunderstood mental health issues. The older you get, the more you realize how much you missed out on, and it could've all been avoided if seeking access to mental health care was made easier, more affordable, and didn't have such a stigma attached to it. Frank Haung (Max Volume Silence) did an excellent job creating a visual representation of how governments and society intentionally mislead our troubled youth for their own agenda. Putting a firearm in the hands of someone with untreated mental health issues, whether they're in the military, law enforcement, or they're a civilian, can have catastrophic effects as we all unfortunately already know."
