    Some big news from Big Business, as the LA metal band has teamed up with Consequence of Sound and Heavy Consequence to premiere the new track “Let Them Grind” (listen below). On top of that, they’re announcing the release of their new album, The Beast You Are, and a spring 2019 North American headlining tour.

    On their previous album, 2016’s Command Your Weather, the band returned to being a duo, comprised of Jared Warren (bass/vocals) and Coady Willis (drums/vocals), after expanding to a four-piece starting with their 2011 EP, Quadruple Single. For fans less familiar with Big Business, Warren and Willis were concurrently members of the Melvins from 2006 through 2015.

    “It’s just better,” explains Willis of becoming a two-piece again. “We work faster, and we know what we’re both going for. It gives us more room to be weirder in certain aspects and try different things. It makes sense because that’s how we established ourselves in the beginning and how we learned to write songs together, it was just the two of us. Coming back to that lineup felt natural.”

    Regarding the track “Let Them Grind”, Warren tells us it’s “the perfect song for any situation in which a soundtrack for suppressing blood-boiling, ear-ringing anger is needed.”

    Along with the song release and album news, Big Business are also announcing a spring headlining tour that kicks off April 11th in Long Beach, California. See those dates, plus previously announced shows with Clutch in the itinerary below.
