Wormrot Singapore Grindcore trio release new track and Video “WEEPING WILLOW”

Singapore grindcore trio WORMROT have released a brand new single, “Weeping Willow“, along with a stunningly cinematic ‘Grieve Trilogy‘ music video.

Weeping Willow” tells the tale of a father who will do everything he can to protect his son,  whether in this life or the next.  The song introduces a new palette of sounds not often associated with grindcore, including nightmarish strings courtesy of 18-year old violinist Myra Choo, illustrating that WORMROT continue to push the boundaries of the genre with their most impressive offering to date.  

Listen to “Weeping Willow” now on all digital music platforms.To coincide with the release of “Weeping Willow“, WORMROT have also dropped a brand new music video, featuring not one, not even two, but three of the band’s brand new songs from their upcoming album ‘Hiss’.  The ‘Grieve Trilogy‘ includes the tracks “Grieve“, “Weeping Willow” and “Voiceless Choir“, and pays homage to Asian cinema cult classics such as ‘Female Prisoner Scorpion’ and a nod to Singapore’s favourite crime shows, as WORMROT guitarist Rasyid explains: 

Combining three songs to tell a single continuous story, this trilogy portrays the unnamed protagonist’s vengeance on the corrupt cops who plotted the murder of her lover. We pay tribute to ’70s Japanese crime movies and two of Singapore’s own TV series ‘Triple 9’ and ‘Crimewatch’ which we grew up watching.

With new sounds and fresh textures, WORMROT are set to shake up the world of extreme music when ‘Hiss’ releases on 8 July.
