Californian noise punks Nervous have announced the release of their new EP, which follows up their 2013 self-titled full-length. The new release will be titled Duration and Delusion and will be released on October 23 via Twelve Gauge Records. Recorded and mixed by Max Senna (Ash Borer, etc) and mastered by Alan Douches (Torche, etc), Duration and Delusion will feature six new tracks of angular, driving alternative noise rock.

Michael Kadnar is a busy guy. As a musician, he spends his time drumming for NY/NJ experimental metal band Black Table, as well as German post-metal/black/neocrust unit Downfall of Gaia. He also runs a forward thinking boutique record label called Silent Pendulum Records, that already has a short string of solid releases under its belt. I spoke with Mike about balancing the duties of being in several bands on two different continents, pushing a label forward, booking a fest, and about the musical landscape as he sees it. The label’s latest release is a reissue of the s/t record from Australian band Hope Drone:
Man, my love for So Hideous is waaay up there. I seriously love these dudes and I’ve been crushing on their music since the So Hideous, My Love days. The band will release their new, and highly anticipated, record Laurestine in October. If you’re thinking to yourself “Man, I wish I could hear some of those new tunes!” then I’ve got some exciting news for you: So Hideous has released a stream of their new track “Yesteryear” and it is glorious. Check it out below! Continue reading
We recently got the first teaser for Deafheaven‘s new record New Bermuda and the band didn’t keep us waiting for long for more material. Well, technically the first material from New Bermuda, the bands new track “Brought To The Water” was released today and it is siiiick. I really love Sunbather, but this record sounds nastier and more raw, so I am stoked to get some Deafheaven this year. Check out the new track below. Continue reading
Jesus, that is a long headline. I love The World Is A Beautiful Place, but typing their full name is a bitch. I’ll jump right into this, TWIABP is one of the best bands on the planet whose ranks are ever rotating and whose music is calm and cool as well as intense and radical. They will be releasing a new record Harmlessness this year and the band has released a new song and video. The track is called “January 10th, 2014” and it is won-der-ful. The video is also rad. Check it. Continue reading
You know, the first few times I saw Lane post about Blacklisters, I let it go to the wayside. Recently though, I took a listen to the band and I am digging the hell out of the British noise mongers. The band is currently streaming a rad new track titled “I Knock Myself Out” and it is a beast. Check out the track below, courtesy of Noisey. Continue reading
I know there are people out there who think there is too much hype behind bands like Deafheaven, but I think they make killer tunes that I really dig. Sunbather was great and I expect nothing less than this on New Bermuda. The band has released a one minute teaser for their new album and it has me very excited. Check out the teaser below.

Nathan Grey, vocalist for Boysetsfire, will release his solo EP NTHN GRY soon and he has released his second music video in promotion of the record. This video is for the track “Wayward Ghosts,” which is a reeeeally weird song. You can check out Nathan‘s new video below. It’s a doozy. Continue reading
UK noise rock quartet Blacklisters have premiered the official video for their new track, “Shirts”, over at Crack Magazine. The bludgeoning, maniacal track, which will appear on their upcoming album, Adult, is set to an equally manic video depicting the members going completely nuts, naturally. Frontman Billy Mason-Wood comments on the new track:
“This song, Shirts, is a song about shirts, about wearing them, about needing them, about loving them. I didn’t wear a shirt once and this is what my world looked like. Always wear at least one shirt.”
Check out the video after the break and make sure you are wearing a shirt while doing so.
Adult will be released in the UK via Smalltown America in September and in the US on October 16 via Handshake Inc (vinyl) and Exploding in Sound (cassette).
Does the name Sibiir ring a bell? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Well, it didn’t for me either, but by some luck of the draw, I listened to the Oslo-based band, which features members of Sigh & Explode, Jack Dalton and Call:Vega. Man, their music is fantastic. It’s been tossed around that they are the perfect amalgamation of Burst and Burnt By The Sun. Burst By The Sun if you will. And I have to agree. The band released their new track “Swallow And Trap Them!” today and it’s glorious. Check it out below, via MetalSucks. Continue reading
THE TIME HAS COME. THE RAPTURE IS UPON US. Oh, wait. No it’s not. It’s just the glorious new record by post-blackened revolutionaries Hope Drone. This band creates some haunting, mesmerizing, bastard-smashing tunes I’ve ever heard and I am seriously stoked that the release of Cloak Of Ash is almost here. Hope Drone have teamed up with Decibel to stream the album a week in advance and you have got to hear this shit. CHECK IT. Continue reading
I’ve already talked about Nathan Gray, the frontman of Boysetsfire, but since then I have been listening to his solo EP NTHN GRY a lot. I really dig the music, which itself is dubbed “Satanic post-industrial pop.” Nathan has released a new music video for the first track off of his solo EP “Wolves.” It’s a pretty cool music video, considering it is pretty much a static shot. Check it out below. Continue reading

Ex-Made Out of Babies vocalist and Spylacopa contributor Julie Christmas also makes a guest appearance on the track “Bug Boy”. The album’s artwork and track listing can be found after the break.
Nothing are not your average band. Their post-rocking, shoegazing psychedelic tunes have graced my ears for a few years now. Recently the band contributed to the Nirvana covers compilation with their rendition of “Something In The Way.” Their version is hauntingly beautiful and mesmerizing and now a music video has been released for said song. Nothing are very cinematic, and it is quite obvious in the below video. Check it out below. Continue reading
