Check the dates after the jump and see where you’ll be seeing Being As An Ocean, Vanna and My Iron Lung. Continue reading
It’s always a bummer when bands you really love decide to call it a day. This has been the case many times for me with bands like Alexisonfire, Bone Dance and Heartless and now another band has been laid to rest: Castevet.

This band will definitely be missed and I’m sad to see them go. After the jump you can stream the bands most recent album Obsian as well as their previous LP Mounds Of Ash. Continue reading

The album will feature 40 minutes of intense, noise laden rock and roll that would make Amphetamine Reptile blush, and we have your first taste! We at American Aftermath are happy to bestow upon you the opening track from Wild, “Staring into Space”.
