Los Angeles-based EBM/Industrial group Youth Code are currently streaming their latest EP, A Place To Stand, in full over at Pitchfork. Consisting of four new original tracks and four remixes of past material by CLIPPING, Sanford Parker of Corrections House, God Module and Silent Servant, the newly Josh Eustis (Nine Inch Nails, Telefon Tel Aviv, Sons Of Magdalene) produced EP by the frenetic electronic duo sees the group expanding their soundscape to include more melodic synths and layered, complex rhythms, in addition to a brief varied vocal approach on the A-Side closer “A Litany (A Place To Stand)” which trades the group’s usual harsh vocals for an expanded spoken word diatribe. Stream A Place To Stand via Pitchfork here and pre-order the record via Dais Records here, due September 23rd.
Concurrently, Youth Code are due for a record release show on the same date at The Complex In Glendale, with support by High-Functioning Flesh and Them Are Us Too.

Audio terrorists Full Of Hell are currently streaming “Gordian Knot”, the first cut off of their upcoming collaborative LP with renown Japanese noise artist Merzbow, exclusively over at Noisey. Delivering on the band’s promise to continue to push their aural boundaries to further realms of harshness and inaccessibility, the new track deters away from the band’s groovier dark hardcore beginnings in place of a newer adherence to the rasp of death metal and grindcore, a direction the full album is due to pursue. Stream “Gordian Knot” via Noisey here along with an interview with vocalist Dylan Walker on the band’s new alliance with label Profound Lore, commentary on the development of the new album as well as information on the second bonus album included exclusively with the CD version of the band’s upcoming LP. In addition, Full Of Hell are set to embark on an Australian tour with Idylls and Machina Genova late November. Peep dates for that tour below.

Revocation have released the first episode of the Making-Of special feature for their upcoming Metal Blade Records debut and fifth LP, Deathless.
