Against the Grain

 New Baltimore, Michigan, USA

Against the Grain is a 4 piece Punk band out of Detroit with a hardhitting and refreshing sound. One of the hardest working bands in Detroit, ATG promises to pack the house full of fans screaming their songs.Be ready for their energetic live-shows that combine Thrash-punk, the blues-spirit, screaming guitars, blazing solos, and innovative basslines, with powerful lyrics that you can yell along to at the top of your lungs.


Against the Grain is a new and upcoming band from Detroit spreading around their infectious blend of Punk, Thrash, Rock and roll, The Blues and even some funk. Compared to bands from Motorhead, to Nofx, ATG has a wide range of influences, while always maintaining their signature sound.

Brothers Rob and Chris make up the back-bone of the band on drums and bass, and its obvious they have been playing together on stage for eleven years.

Although Against the Grain has only been gigging for 9 months, they have got out to the public 1000+ physical copies of their debut EP, and 500+ digital downloads.
In just 9 short months they have already shared the stage with:
Murphys Law
Agent Orange
Common Enemy
The Koffin Kats
Hellmouth ( ex-suicide machines)
- and will surely be playing with more. Plans of relentless touring in the next 6 months are a sure-go.
