Last Saturday at the Unsilent Night festival in Dallas, Texas, I witness what I thought was Glassjaw performing a new song. NOPE. Turns out it was a cover of 108’s “Woman”. I had not heard that song before in my life so I was lead to believe it was a new track. Sorry to mislead you guys. Footage of the performance has surfaced on the net and can be viewed below. You can also listen to the original as well. Check it out!
Gifts from Enola have booked a string of East Coast tour dates in support of their awesome, and I mean awesome new album A Healthy Fear. Support on select dates will come from Gates and We Were Skeletons. Below are the scheduled dates:
We’ve already heard “Bad Saint” from Color Film’s (Daryl Palumbo, Richard Penzone) upcoming debut Living Arrangements and now we get another taste in the form of the reverb laden, poppy, almost 80’s inspired “52 Minds”. Ok, I dig it, so sue me. It’s very catchy, chill and Daryl’s vocals are always great. Check it out after the jump if you desire.
Living Arrangements is scheduled to be released early next year. No exact release date has been revealed yet.
How the fuck cam you not love Meek Is Murder? This trio absolutely blows me away with each album they put out. They recently released a new EP titled Into The Sun Where It Falls Off The Sky and now have released a music video for the forth track on the album Marty McFly (88 mph). Of course the video has a theme and if you couldn’t tell from the title, it’s the classic film Back To The Future. Meek Is Murder take the famous school dance scene (in which Michael J.

Mastodon vocalist and guitarist Brent Hinds recently told MTVHIVE that the band is working on a “Radioheadish” and “spooky sounding” new album. The band should be in the studio as early as January but may tour another year on The Hunter before releasing anything. On the sound of the new record, Brent said:
A lot of the stuff I’m writing is in open G-minor. I’m playing a lot of slide guitar and just getting really Jimmy Page-y on the place and getting really eerie and Radioheadish and very spooky sounding.
Lane has been keeping you informed about the new album from Kowloon Walled City, Container Ships and I have not stopped listening to the album since I got it. It’s so fucking good it’s insane. Like, unbelievably heavy. You’ve heard two tracks from the album already and now you can stream the whole album thanks to Lambgoat.
So if you’ve been sleeping on Kowloon Walled City or if you’ve just been dying to hear Container Ships, head over here and get you some. Trust me, you want to do this. If you are in need of good heavy, sludgy music to get you by, this is the album for you and it releases tomorrow via Brutal Panda Records.
