French noise rock miscreants Pord have unleashed a new track from their forthcoming sophomore album, Wild, over at The Obelisk. The new track begs the question “What Are Tuesdays For?”; a valid and perplexing question. I cannot answer the question but I can tell you for certain that the song rips. After a stop and start intro, the track propels itself forward in an angular whirlwind of mangled riffs. Pord will cut and stab their way into your heart. Check it out for yourself over at The Obelisk.
Wild will be released on September 8th via Solar Flare Records. Pre-orders can be placed here.

Pitchfork has unveiled pro-shot footage from their music festival in Chicago earlier this month of Deafheaven performing a new track entitled “From The Kettle To The Coil”. The video footage arrived yesterday with tweets of the above image and the caption “It is done. Come August, it’s yours.” with the PRP reporting that the newly performed track will be part of Adult Swim‘s free singles series for this year, scheduled for release and download on August 25th. The track is standard Deafheaven fare, continuing alongside the revamped direction of Sunbather, though there is a trudging number around the 2:00 minute mark that could foretell a harsher direction for the band in the future. Stream the video for “From The Kettle To The Coil” below and bookmark the Adult Swim Singles page for future reference. Continue reading
KEN mode have debuted the official video to their track “The Promises of God”, from their last album Entrench, over at Punknews.

Post-metal outfit Minsk are reportedly in the process of recording their long-awaited follow up to 2009’s With Echoes in the Movement of Stone. The new record, which is being produced by Sanford Parker, is slated to be released in early 2015 via Relapse Records. Vocalist Timothy Mead had the following to say about the upcoming record:
“So much attention and care have gone into this process, this renewal. We knew that in order to really move Minsk forward in a meaningful way we would need to raise the bar all over again. This realization lit a fire within us to transcend what was. So many things had to fall into place to make it what we knew it needed to be. A new rhythm section, a second guitar for the first time since the early days of the band, additional vocalists, Sanford‘s contributions moving to the realm of synth/noise for this album. Lots of changes, to be sure, and yet the results will be unmistakably Minsk… just Minsk on a whole different level this time around. We cannot wait to share the fruits of these labors.”
