We Are The Road Crew

Tour's winding down. It's week six, and feels like I've been gone for years. It'll be nice to get home and get a real shower and make dinner and gossip with my roommates and drink cheap whiskey at my favorite spots and catch up on writing. Luckily for my wanderlust, I've got a whole lot more traveling to do before 2011 hits. A few days after I get back to Brooklyn, I'm flying out to Portland for Fall Into Darkness fest, indulging my Cascadian hunger with Fauna, Witch Mountain, Black Cobra, Worm Ouroboros, Krallice, Via Vengeance and more, seeing some dear friends, then turning right back around. One week at home, with Resistant Culture and Wolvserpent gigs included, then heading overseas. a week in London pounding pints and raging at Live Evil fest, Electric Wizard, and Bison BC with the lads, two and a half in Dublin with my sweetheart, a week in Berlin for Nuclear War Now! Fest, a couple days in the studio in Northampton with Amebix to check out the new record and talk business, a couple days back in Ireland with Johnny, then back to NYC on December 1st. The next day I'll more than likely be flying out to meet up with Black Tusk and head out on a two week tour with...(secret super awesome band). After THAT...bedtime.

See y'all on the road.

Get In The Fucking Van

Heading back east, little by little. Trekking through the goddamn desert on our way to Dallas, then rolling through the Dirty South and playing with some killer bands - Weedeater, Radio Moscow, and fucking BUZZOVEN!!!! Sticking with the tour a little longer than planned - I'm hopping off in Richmond after we rage with Hellbastard, Cannabis Corpse, and Ramming Speed, then making my way back up north via DC and Philly/NJ. There's a possibility I'll be bouncing out to Portland for Fall into Darkness Fest 10/7-10/10 if I can rustle up plane fare, then I'm sticking around NYC until i leave for Europe.

Here's what we got left. Come hang out, do a shot, buy some merch, or let us crash on your floor.

Doomed to Suffer Presents: COUGH, Ghloas, Sadgiqacea, Hollenlarm

September 26, 2010 @ 09:00pm - Doomed to Suffer & Philly F/M Fest Present:


Doomed at heart but with a healthy appreciation for filthy sludge and bong-ripping psychedelia, this drugged-out quartet draw upon the power of the almighty riff to unleash their crushing odes to the infinite. Even their name is a dead giveaway – ever really listen to the beginning of “Sweet Leaf?” There you go. This year will see the recent Relapse signees releasing a split with UK doom heroes The Wounded Kings on the always-excellent Forcefield Records, embarking on their first-ever European tour this spring, then rolling across the USA in November. Thank Electric Wizard, Black Sabbath, and a LOT of weed for making this band possible.


"This New Jersey-based quartet shares members with local heavyweights Deathbeds, but has carved out its own niche within the city's heavy music scene, blowing eardrums and dropping jaws with their spaced-out progressive metal compositions. Equal parts Mogwai, Mouth of the Architect, Russian Circles, Jesu, and Sonic Youth, Gholas are a rare and compelling sort of band, one with its own aesthetic, sound, and raw, beating heart."


Heavy, slow, and atmospheric progressive doom from one of the Philly underground's rising stars. SADGIQACEA (sad-juh-kay-shuh) is a ferocious and epic power duo from the Philadelphia/South Jersey Shore area, using detuned guitars and thundering percussion to create a shape-shifting foundation of dripping darkness, while soaring vocals and echo-drenched strings pierce through the toxic sludge, painting a face-melting lucid dream of metaphysical pain and ecstasy.


Bleakest doom, crushing black. Amber, PA.

20 Buck Spin's WOLVSERPENT (formerly PUSSYGUT) Announce US Fall Tour

Boise, ID's most intriguing export, the newly-christened WOLVSERPENT (known previously as PUSSYGUT) have revealed the details of their first-ever major North American tour. During the month-long trek, the ghostly duo will will be playing their upcoming opus Blood Seed in its overwhelming entirely, unraveling their haunting gothic tapestries of violin and doom, ambient and pathos, upon an army of strangers. WOLVSERPENT will be joined along their left-hand path by their friends and allies in Velnias, Locrian, Ehnahre, Javelina, Subrosa, and more.

Blood Seed, the group's fourth full-length (and first under the WOLVSERPENT name) will be released on 500 slabs of virgin vinyl by the ever-evolutionary 20 Buck Spin on October 5, 2010.

It would be awesome to get the band some coverage in their home state. Would you be interested in running a show preview, or doing a live review? Adding the Boise show to your event listings? Maybe an interview with the band? Let me know what you think!

Tribal Grinders RESISTANT CULTURE Announce North American Tour

Tribal Grinders RESISTANT CULTURE Announce North American Tour

The enigmatic tribal grind/anarcho-crust collective known as Resistant Culture have announced plans to take their message to the masses on a North American tour this fall. The predominantly Native American quartet are known for their ingenious blend of raging grindcore, chaotic crust punk, death metal intensity, and traditional chants & instrumentation. Based in LA and dedicated to the fight for equal rights, environmental issues, and recognition of the issues that face Native Americans and other minorities, Resistant Culture have been a strong voice within the underground for many years. Formerly propelled by the incendiary riffs of the late great Jesse Pintado (Terrorizer Napalm Death), the band has returned in full force, recording a new demo and preparing for a full-scale US tour that will wind through the entire country. The Sacred Fire 2010 U.S. Tour will be in support of the first pressing of the band's classic All One Struggle on clear vinyl, with a gatefold, and 24x36 full color poster and the third pressing of their debut album, Welcome to Reality.
