PLAYGROUNDED is a rock band based in Rotterdam, NL and Athens, GR. Alternative metal and contemporary electronic elements form a genre defying sound that has been compared to artists as diverse as Deftones and Massive Attack, Karnivool, The Ocean and Moderat.

The 2017 release of PLAYGROUNDED’s first full length album “In Time With Gravity” united representatives of the rock press throughout Europe in critical acclaim. The tour that followed in major Dutch and Greek cities culminated in an invitation for the band to close the Nine Inch Nails show in Amsterdam’s AFAS Live arena. They have also shared the stage with artists such as Anathema and Riverside.

The band released 'The death of Death' with Pelagic Records on March 18 2022 and toured 36 UK/EU cities supporting The Ocean Collective. They have received invitations to perform at important UK/EU festivals in the summer of '23.
