GROEZROCK 2014, Edition #23:


We just received some bad news: ROTTING OUT will have to cancel their Spring Tour due to one of the members having to deal with critical health issues and having to get treatment. It's impossible for them to do this tour. We wish them all the best and a fast recovery.

Rotting Out will be replaced by Liferuiner. LIFERUINER is a contiguous thinking melodic hardcore band from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. "Future Revisionists" is their sophomore release that represents a strong message of equality, integrity, and passion. LIFERUINER hopes to inspire change not only with their music, but also their mess. They are on the road with Norma Jean.


Besides GROEZROCK, each year there is a bunch of GROEZROCK Pre-Parties. When you're in the neighborhood, make sure you'll drop by and say hello. You might even win some GR-Tickets.

For more information check out the FACEBOOK page.


Line Up:

With a sound that merges the plaintiveness of post-hardcore with the punishing heaviness of metalcore, Bury Tomorrow attack listeners from all fronts with their emotionally charged metal assault. Offsetting layers of pleasant, atmospheric melody with sudden bursts of chugging heaviness, the band uses its breakdowns to create a brooding, moody effect, as if the songs are lurching into a fit when provoked from their somber ruminations.

Pop punk with a melodic hardcore edge with heavy vibe breakdowns, a high-paced rhythm section and odd keyboards.

The band, formed in September 2010, has a unique take on metalcore and is not only known for its harmonious but chaotic tracks, but also because of female screamer Caroline.
Inspired by bands such as Underoath, For Today, Architects and Every Time I Die, The Charm the Fury brings a new dimension to the genre. With a strong focus on quality, dynamics and loudness, the stubborn TCTF twist cannot be missed

This melody-driven hardcore band from Belgium has been touring non-stop since these youngsters started out in 2011. After spreading their name across the country and after releasing a first EP they are now climbing their way up. In november 2013 the band released another promising EP which had an immense impact and made them cross the country borders. Their sound has become heavier and they bring the most energetic live show you've probably ever seen. It's been a crazy journey so far but there's a lot more to come.
