The Miami grindcore soldiers of Maruta are heading out again for a Midwest/East Coast adventure, up to Chicago and back down the seaboard. Tour dates are on the band's Myspace. In order to get set and make some last minute gas money they are doing a little show over at Goo on May 2 with Consular, the Panix, Dolphin Splatter and Years Ago. It's an all ages show, of course. If you haven't seen Maruta, they are a three-piece with guitar, drums, and vocals and they come forward with extreme blasts of intensity. Check it out, this. I found an old video of these guys getting down in 2007 -- after the jump.
