17.08.2014 - R.I.P. The Rotted, 2008-2014
We’ve always tried to play every show as if its our last, but this time it’s for real, Wrongstock in London on the 20th September will be our final performance for numerous reasons we won’t go into. Just know how much we appreciate all you who have supported us over the years, not just as The Rotted but also with our previous bands Gorerotted and Screamin' Daemon. We want to go out on a high, and what better way to do that than by playing on a bill celebrating the work of our beloved producer Russ Russell at The Camden Underworld, a venue we’ve played countless times over the years and also visited as punters since we were teenagers. Come get fucking howling with us one last time and help us drink The Rotted to death! If you’re interested in what’s next for us…
Ben lives in Liverpool and is training to be a physiotherapist, so if you do yourself a mischief in a few years go see him and he’ll put you back together. Musically, he’s hoping to release the first Your Funeral EP soon, and it also looks like he’s joining a cool as fuck band you should have all heard of, so keep your eyes peeled for an announcement soon.
Tim lives wherever he parks his van and will continue working as a professional musician in many projects from various different genres. He will return soon with a Punk as fuck, anti-everything project to really stick it to Thatcher and the rest of the fascists.
Trud is still a tattooist at Blue Dragon Tattoo Studio Brighton UK. Go see him for some work, he’s pretty fucking good at what he does! http://www.bluedragontattoo.co.uk/#/trud/
Nate is moving to Haifa where he’s going to do a PhD in Neurobiology. He will continue drumming in other projects and will still offer tuition, check his site here: http://www.nathanielgould.com/

18/03/2013 - 'Rotted Fucking Earth' music video online now!
The music video for our latest single Rotted Fucking Earth is now available to view in the video section.
In another move to keep things in the family, the whole thing was self-funded and released on our own Anarchogram Industries label with the video being directed by vocalist Ben McCrow's brother Tom McCrow and the audio being produced by Joe Thompson at Sonic Forge Music, a great studio co-owned by our good friend Mic Hourinhan (Desecration, Onslaught, ex-Extreme Noise Terror)
20/02/2013 - ‘Rotted Fucking Earth’: The Rotted’s anti-pledge new single!
Over the last few years, we’ve watched with interest bands that have been using this new “pledge” system off the internet of making records, where people pay for the finished product before it’s even been recorded. But in typical Rotted fashion, we’ve done it all arse-over-tit and recorded the song first, and now ask that you “pledge” money toward owning it. You won’t have to wait, simply “download” the track from “iTunes," "CD Baby" or “The Amazon” today and it’s yours instantly. (Personally, I reckon our revolutionary new way of making music is going to take off big time, and more bands will follow suit soon. Watch this space!)
We self-funded 'Rotted Fucking Earth' and it will be released on our own Anarchogram Industries label. It’s about throw away culture and the acceleration of just about everything in modern society. We decided that in a world of 8 string guitars, 12 string basses and drumkits from hell "shredding" in weird scat-jazz time signatures that we wanted a stripped down song with lots of shouting, and where the verse and chorus are the same chords. It’s the most knuckle-dragging, drunken-swaggering, punk-rocking song we’ve ever written.
We have over 4700 'likes' on Facebook alone. If 100% of those people buy the track for only 79p, we’ll make a new album. If 50% buy it, we’ll make a new EP or 7" Vinyl and a new video. If 20% buy the track, we’ll have covered our costs. If none of you buy it, we promise to fuck off forever.

25/01/2013 - First two shows of 2013 announced
We'll be playing MetalDays Open Air in Slovenia on 25th July and Barther Metal Open Air in Germany on 16th or 17th August. We had a mental night playing our only ever other Slovenian show in 2010 and can't wait to get back there, and being the only Death Metal/Punk band on what looks like an all Black Metal bill in Germany will be interesting for us, and hopefully the audience. More show announcements coming soon, so keep checking back.
