One of my favorite record labels in hardcore and metal music today is Deathwish Inc. (home of Deafheaven, Converge, Code Orange Kids, Modern Life Is War, Punch and many more). And over the past few days they’ve been teasing and counting down to a major announcement of some kind. None of us knew what it was, many assumed it could be an album release of some sort but the label dropped no hints until the announcement came today in the form of the picture you see above you.
As you should all know (and currently be celebrating), Fred Phelps, founder of the friendly, God Hates Fags family church, The Westboro Baptist Church, has died and to show their feelings, Touché Amoré have released the above t-shirt design, which should be available on their e-store later today. Good show, chaps. Approved. You can also check out the classic “WeHateFredPhelps.com” after the jump. Continue reading
Well folks, a few days ago it was announced that my boys in So Hideous has inked a deal with Prosthetic Records, which means that the distribution of their amazing new album would reach many more people.

Brooklyn Vegan have premiered the opening track from Tiger Flowers’ full length debut, Dead Hymns, which is out on April 6th via Melotov Records. The track is entitled “Batesian Mimicry” and it showcases Tiger Flowers’ ability to pummel you with noisy, rhythmically bastardizing riffs, as well as craft post-hardcore-esque melodies. Basically, the song hurts oh so good. Head over to Brooklyn Vegan to check it out now.
Post-hardcore visionaries Polar are an amazing band that I am totally fascinated with.

Metal Injection have premiered the new music video for the Tiger Flowers track “Cruising Till the Wheels Fall Off”, which will appear on the group’s debut full length album Dead Hymns. Watch in delight as frontman Jesse Madre hunts down his fellow band members in true Rambo fashion. If only Stallone’s recent films were this entertaining. You can check out the video after the break.
Dead Hymns will be released on April 8th via Melotov Records.
Letlive have announced a co-headlining trek with Architects (UK) that will commence in late April. Further support will come from the likes of Glass Cloud, and I, The Mighty. On the pending tour, Letlive frontman Jason Butler comments:
We’ve been a band for nearly a decade and this is our 2nd proper United States headliner. That being the case, it is a rather significant and pivotal endeavor at once. Now that you know that, you can safely assume how important this tour is to us as well as who we share it with. I’ve noticed many comments polluting our considerably juvenile cyber spaces inquiring things like “why would this band tour with this band?” and some other unwarranted entitled opinion on what bands should or should not do with THEIR art. I can sincerely say to you that letlive. plays music for people that want to listen to music with no real concern for specified or claimed genre, while playing that music alongside others that will do the same. In this case, those people go by the monikers of Architects, Glass Cloud, and I the mighty. Call it what you will, we’ll keep calling it art. Holler.
Letlive will be touring in support of their latest release, The Blackest Beautiful, while Architects will be supporting their forthcoming album Lost Forever//Lost Together, which is out on March 11th. Tour dates are available after the break.
Michigan’s emotive post-hardcore outfit La Dispute have premiered the official video for their track “For Mayor in Splitsville” over at AV Club. The simplistic yet driving song, which will appear on the group’s forthcoming album Rooms of the House, is set to a clip featuring a recently split couple who are trying their damnedest to forget about each other and find piece of mind. You can check out the video after the break.
Rooms of the House will be released on March 18th via Better Living Records.
Melodic hardcore act Hundredth took me by storm with their 2013 release Revolt and I have been highly anticipating the bands follow-up EP Resist, which will see release in March. The band has just unleashed a monster of a single in the form of “Demons,” which you can check out after the jump. It’s everything you love about Hundredth wrapped up in a three minute powerhouse. Check it out: Continue reading
Funeral For A Friend are a band that some people can take and some can’t stand. I, for one, really dig this band and was quite pleased with last years Conduit. It’s insane that Funeral are back in the studio after releasing an album less than a year ago. Fucking rad, but insane. After the jump you can check out a statement made by the band’s vocalist Matthew Davies and peep one of my favorite tracks from Conduit. Continue reading
La Dispute have released a new track from their upcoming album Rooms of the House, which will be released on March 18th. The new track is entitled “Stay Happy There” and it has all the things La Dispute fans enjoy; post-hardcore melodies, dense emotional lyrics, and vocals that come off as yelled prose poetry. It’s great, to say the least. You can check out the track after the break and pre-order your copy of the album HERE.
