JINJER bassist Eugene Abdukhanov says: "We are simply over the moon! Our last tour of North America was real fire and now we're coming back to give you even more! More new songs, better sound and stages, and louder shows! On top of everything, we are proud to have our friends from SUICIDE SILENCE and TOOTHGRINDER on board for the whole run. It will be fantastic."

"Macro" was released on October 25 via Napalm Records. Punishing riffs, aggressively blended vocals and astonishingly deep lyrics make "Macro" JINJER's most advanced and undeniable album yet — taking the listener on a journey of trauma, power struggle and greed with a progressive groove metal backdrop.
While January 2019's "Micro" EP proved to be a short exercise in madness and technical brilliance, fans still weren't prepared for what JINJER had in store with the absolutely unbridled "Macro". Defying all boundaries, the aptly titled opening track "On The Top" features the band's eclectic trademarks and obeys one law only — their own. Frontwoman Tatiana Shmaylyuk defines the unique character of the Ukrainian act with menacing whispers, enthralling clean vocals and brutal growls whilst lethally groovy riff cascades melt into twisted songwriting. There is space for a microscopic bit of reggae "Judgement (& Punishment)" in all the heaviness, the double bass is beautifully out of control on "Pausing Death", and technically superior tracks like "Home Back" defy gravity.
