ROTTEN SOUND are celebrating their 20th anniversary of Grindcore and chaos during the whole year of 2013. This crushing party begins with the release of the "Species at War" EP in January. Afterwards the wrecking will continue with many tours and festival performances all around the globe. 2013 promises to become the most intense year in the two decades of ROTTEN SOUND's existence: "Our plans are huge and we are aware that some events may not happen, but we are working very hard to bring our music to the ears of as many people as possible", states frontman Keijo Niinimaa, after returning from the honourable position of lead guest singer at the "NASUM Farewell Tour" in 2012. "We will visit some new places, while continuing to bomb those we have been playing in since the very beginning of the band. We are also determined to arrange one hell of a party before the end of 2013 to celebrate our 20 years of existence."
