The poppy math rock inspired songstress, Marnie Stern, has announced the release of a new record. The new album, which bears the greatest title ever, The Chronicles of Marnia, will see a release on March 19th. The album will feature the following track list:
The Ocean have announced their plans for 2013, one of which is a new record. The band are releasing a new album in late April that will come in two versions; one with vocals and one instrumental. The Ocean are planning on releasing a special edition of the yet to be titled record that will include a special film by Craig Murray. Other plans include the release of a 3xDVD set entitled Collective Oblivion, expected to be released later in 2013, and a 3 week European tour with Cult of Luna and a stop at the Roadburn festival. For more details on the upcoming awesomeness, check out the band’s official statement below.
A few weeks back, Finch had “finalized” their touring schedule for the tenth anniversary of their album What It Is to Burn. Looks like they pulled a fast one on us because since then they have added four additional shows. Maybe this means that the tour will eventually get bigger and hopefully come to a town you and I! Here is the NEW touring schedule. Don’t be surprised to see more pop up.
Hot on the heels of their split with Bosse-de-Nage, San Francisco’s Deafheaven will be heading to the studio in January to record a new full length that will bear the title Sunbather. The band will once again work with Jack Shirley on the production of the record and will see a release sometime in Spring of next year. Vocalist Gregory Clarke commented on the sound the new record will produce:
Godflesh’s last full length, 2001′s Hymns, will be receiving the deluxe reissue treatment through The End Records and will be released in dual CD/double vinyl set on February 19th. The set will include the remastered album as well as a bonus disc with the following tracks:
The home of a big bunch of dumb noise, Nefarious Industries, has released a free downloadable label sampler for your listening pleasure. Included are tracks from the label’s current roster such as El Drugstore, A Fucking Elephant and Arbogast as well as upcoming Nefarious artists such as Seven Nines and Tens. There’s even an East of the Wall track from Farmer’s Almanac on there! You can download it at this location.
As previously reported, the instrumental noisy rock duo, A Fucking Elephant, will be releasing a new 7″ in January. January 22nd to be precise! The upcoming, two song set will simply be titled Seven Inches (get it?) and will feature the tracks “I’m Addicted to Drugs and Sex and I Want You to Choke Me” and “A Bunch of Good Looking Roundeyes”. The 7″ will be released through the band’s own label, Nefarious Industries, and will be limited to a 500 copy wax pressing (250 black vinyl and 250 yellow).
I have already listened to this thing and it is a little different than the material on their split with El Drugstore. It’s a little slower, more hypnotic, a little dissonant at times, but still whacked out on coke. You can watch a live performance of “I’m Addicted to Drugs…” below and peep their January touring schedule that will be updated soon. Don’t sleep on this!
Over the last few days I have been responding to a few e-mails I receive from bands. I used to do this as often as possible, but as of late I have fell behind. I posted about Swarm Of Arrows, one of the bands who have emailed me recently and now I bring you an exclusive stream from another! Acid Ocean is a three-piece sludge outfit hailing from Milan, Italy and what they do, they do extremely well. I am a huge fan of sludge metal and I find myself entranced by the power and aggression that Acid Ocean brings on their new self-titled 7″.
With two songs, totaling at almost eight minutes, this record absolutely kills. Slow and punishing but mature and structured. This band takes their influences very seriously and you can hear elements of a plethora of bands like Electric Wizard and Eyehategod but they have a lot of non-sludge parts in their music also which is what makes them quite diverse. Stop what you’re doing and stream Acid Ocean‘s new 7″ below. Continue reading
