It has already been announced that Periphery will be releasing two new albums, Juggernaut: Alpha and Juggernaut: Omega, both due out in January. Well, the band is now teasing us with some of their amazing new music. We all saw how incredible and inventive the band can be with their Clear album and I think they have evolved even more with the Juggernaut series. The band is streaming their track “The Scourge” right now and you HAVE to hear this. It’s incredible. Continue reading
New Hampshire screamo outfit Youth Funeral have premiered a new track from their forthcoming EP, See You When I See You, over at Brooklyn Vegan. The new track, entitled “When It Pours”, is a two-minute kick in the teeth that is raw, rambunctious, emotionally charged and often technical at times. Check out the face-melting jam for yourself at this location.
See You When I See You will be released on January 27th via Twelve Gauge Records. The EP’s track listing can be seen after the break.
The first new recording from Faith No More in 17 years, “Motherfucker”, can now be streamed a week before its officially release date. The 7″ will officially be released on November 28th as a part of Record Store Day’s Black Friday and will come paired with a J.G. Thirwell remix of the track. On the track, keyboardist Roddy Bottum comments:
“It feels apt that the first track we’re releasing is ‘Motherfucker,’ a song about accountability. Basically we’ve created, recorded and mixed a new body of work by ourselves and we’re releasing it on our own label. It’s a huge deal for us to only have ourselves to answer to at this point in our career and the song is about that, where the buck stops via the basic imagery of foie gras production, bondage. . .y’know, stuff like that.”
You can stream the track over at Rolling Stone now.

So, I’ve never heard the name Thorr-Axe before (that I know of anyway), but this band is fucking destructive. Like, only a few seconds in and I was hooked on this band.

Oakland, California based avant-metal act Dimesland have premiered a new track from their forthcoming full length, Psychogenic Atrophy, over at Stereogum.

Stream the track for yourself at Stereogum now.
Psychogenic Atrophy will be released on December 9th. Stream another new track, “Are They Cannibals?”, after the break.
Detroit’s off-kilter punks Child Bite have released a new track from their forthcoming Strange Waste EP over at Invisible Oranges. The track, entitled “Molestation of the Arts”, spirals about in a manic, drug-induced fashion . It’s odd and catchy in the best ways possible. Vocalist Shawn Knight comments on the lyrical nature of the track:
“I am an artist and a designer. I often have internal debates about where the line is between the two; what is pure art, the difference between art and design, and is it ok for the two to blend. Sometimes it’s clear, sometimes not so much. This song is a very cynical critique on the art director/ad agency side of things, coming from an artist’s point of view. One way of looking at advertising is that it’s pure manipulation; a commercial’s job is to sell you a product or service; to make you want it more than the other options available. One tactic agencies use is hijacking whatever the latest trends are to seem hip… This way whatever they are selling comes off as ‘cool.’ Cool sells. That’s what this tune is about; major corporations attempting to appear trendy in order to trick people out of their money.”
Stream the new track over at Invisible Oranges and check out their video for “Ancestral Ooze” after the break.

Do you like bands like Nails and the aforementioned The Banner?
