Even without hearing any music, everyone was pumped. Now that The Ocean have unleashed their first track off of the record and it is absolutely glorious. Check out the bands song “The Quiet Observer” below. Oh, dude. It’s… Woah. Continue reading

If you remember back in 2013 Lane and I did “Post-Rockgust.” It was fun and one of the bands featured was Tortoise, a band I really enjoy. At the time of that post, I mentioned that there were rumors that the band we working on new music. Well, as it turns out, that was more than a rumor, the band will be releasing their new, highly anticipated new record The Catastrophist, in January. Rad. You can check out one of the bands new track titled “Gesceap” below. Do it. It’s Tortoise. Continue reading
Swedish progressive sludge outfit Moloken have premiered a new track from their upcoming album, All Is Left To See, at Heavy Blog is Heavy. Titled “Subliminal Hymns”, the new track cycles through hypnotic, galloping sludge sections that, when combined with dread-filled atmospheres, make for a menacing listen. Check it out at this location.
All Is Left To See will be released on October 23 in Europe and on November 13 in North America. Pre-order here.
Leave it to Melvins to release an EP longer than most LPs. Clocking in at forty minutes, Beer Hippy is the new 10″ from the fuzz kingpins and it sounds fucking rad. Melvins don’t do bad, so I guess this was to be expected, though. Lane and I had no idea this was happening, but we are both stoked to get new tunes from these legends. Stream the Beer Hippy EP below. Continue reading
A while back I was doing what I often do, skimming Bandcamp for rad new bands. Eventually I stumbled across Judd Madden, a multi-instrumentalist from Australia who has a penchant for putting out numerous releases per year. After enjoying his music for so long, I finally sat down to chat with the man himself. Continue on to see what Judd has to say about being consistent on his albums, his latest release and what inspires him. Continue reading
I LOVE PITY SEX! Now, as weird as that sounds, I’m sure you know what I mean. I mean, this band is phenomenal. All of the indie thunder that I adore wrapped up and packaged. It’s wonderful. Well, the band will release White Hot Moon next spring (NOOOO! SO FAR AWAAAAY!) and they have just unleashed a track titled “What Might Soothe You?” which rules so hard. Check out the track below. DO IT. Continue reading
Man, we love Pigs here on AA. This band is absolutely fantastic and the same can be said for their new record Wronger. If you’re unaware or looking to be impressed, now is the time for your education. Pigs will release Wronger on Friday, but you can hear the album in full right now. All you have to do is click on over after the jump and let the noise rock take you. Continue reading
Now, I’ve seen fighting in music videos before, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen the front man of a band take actual punches in a video. Not a music video anyway. In KEN Mode‘s latest video, for their song “These Tight Jeans”, Jesse Matthewson takes on another fighter and engages in actual Muay Thai. The video is really rad and it seriously makes me want to watch Warrior. Watch the video below and tell me you don’t want some Tom Hardy all over your screen. Continue reading
Postblackened act So Hideous is a band I can’t get enough of. The band will release their new album Laurestine next month and they have just released their latest track, titled “Relinquish.” The track is everything I love about So Hideous and so much more. Laurestine is magic and I really dig the new music. Check out “Relinquish” below. It’s rad. Continue reading
Seattle noise makers Great Falls (Ex-Kiss It Goodbye, Playing Enemy, Jesu, etc) are set to release their new devastating full-length, The Fever Shed, this Fall on Init Records. The follow-up to 2014’s Accidents Grotesque is a dark and disorienting affair in which mathcore, noise rock and abstract metal blend together to create a menacing, heart-stopping sound. We here at American Aftermath are excited to bring you a taste of what is to come with the album’s fourth, crushing track, “A Gathering in the Head”. This six minute beast stomps about with huge, dissonant, grimy riffs that will break your limbs and drag your limp body through ear-splitting walls of noise. Subject yourself to some good ol’ auditory abuse after the break.
Feel free to stream the album’s opening track, “Dressing The Saints”, below as well.
Canadian post-rockers Seven Nines And Tens are prepping their new album Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Slums and they have just unveiled their new track “I Come From Downtown.” This track is absolutely brilliant. It’s subtle, it’s soothing but it’s got amazing chemistry to it. I really love the track and I can’t wait to hear more. Check out the track below. Continue reading
Fight Amp are still fresh off of their stunningly rad new album Constantly Off and a new 7″ but nothing is going to slow these dudes down. The band has just release a new music video for one of my favorite tracks off of Constantly Off, “Happy Joyful Life.” Click on over after the jump and let this shit command you. Rad video, check it.

Said new record is titled Wronger and it is due to drop early next month. Pigs have unleashed a new track titled “Amateur Hour In Dick City” for all to enjoy. It’s a beast. Enjoy. Continue reading
