As you all know, I am a HUGE fucking fan of Alexisonfire. I have loved the band for years and I was saddened when they called it quits back in 2011. We have seen numerous bands arise out of the ashes of Alexisonfire, such as Gallows. Well, it appears that AoF screamer George Pettit has been working hard on creating music that sounds absolutely nothing like Alexisonfire. I present to you, Dead Tired. This band is fronted by Pettit and has it’s head in the hardcore/punk/sludge variety of savage tunes. After the jump you can stream a track from the band and trust me, you want to hear this.

Back in July, Lane told you about Teen Death, a new band that everyone should have on their radar because their EP Crawling is amazing and it is definitely end-of-the-year-list worthy. I have listened to this album numerous times and, even if it’s just once, listen to it. Do it for the good of all humanity. Do it for grungepunk in 2014. It’s unique and it’s magical. Stream Crawling over at New Noise Magazine.
It’s difficult to reconcile that Happy Diving has only been a band for a little under a year. With only a four track demo out so far, the criminally unknown East Bay, California band embody a natural propensity for eased songwriting with catchy hooks and melodies that suggest a band in the long term, combining the groove and drive of early Weezer and California X alongside the depressive morose of shoegaze and dream pop into a unique concoction all their own. Today brings the second single, “Sad Planet”, off of the group’s recently announced, upcoming debut LP, Big World, recorded earlier this year with producer Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Whirr). It’s a track that’s more of the same, in a best way possible. Stream “Sad Planet” along with the first single “Weird Dream” below and pre-order Big World, due October 21st via Father/Daughter Records, here.
Out of the blue, Greensboro, NC grindcore/crust unit Torch Runner have returned, along with details for their upcoming sophomore LP, Endless Nothing, which if the debut single “Godlust” is any sign, signals only an amplification of brutalistic quality for the group. Due out September 30th via Southern Lord Records, Endless Nothing is an effort “reaching new depths of auditory violence”, according to the group’s press release. As the evidence stands so far, I believe it. Check out the new track “Godlust” along with full album artwork and tracklistings for Endless Nothing below.
