Idaho hardcore outfit Bone Dance announced earlier today that they have decided to disband. The official statement reads as follows:
Revolver have premiered the new gnarly performance music video from Idaho’s nihilistic hardcore outfit Bone Dance. The music video, directed by A.J. Duthie, is set to Bone Dance’s track “Writhing in Ecstasy” from their self titled debut of last year. You can check out the video after jump as well as the band’s upcoming touring schedule.
Bone Dance have announced an upcoming Northwest United States tour that they will embark on next week. The filthy hardcore ensemble will be joined by Cascabel and both bands will shatter your ear drums. But that’s nothing a band-aid won’t cure! Check out the list of dates below and their song “Burnout”. If you haven’t jammed their latest album then do so at this location.
This year has been more than gracious to my ears. I was fond of so many releases in 2012 that it was like pulling teeth trying to narrow this list down to JUST thirty. Since albums have the tendency to grow on me, this list was compiled without review ratings in mind, if I had a chance to review them that is. These thirty albums are the records that I continued to revisit throughout the year and have yet to stop jamming. These are the records that are still fresh and exciting upon the umpteenth listen. Without further adieu, these are my favorite albums of the year.
An’ lemme jus’ say: Fuck December 21st in it’s ass. Ain’t no ‘pocalypse, mutha’ fuckas.
Man, there were way to many good albums released this year. I listened to as many as I could but there were some that I just couldn’t get to. There are also some that I listened to, just not enough for them to make my final list. I can’t let this slide, however and I want to give a shout out to new releases by Marty Friedman, The Mars Volta, Birds In Row, Code Orange Kids, Downfall Of Gaia and Krallice. I really wish I could have settled down to check these albums out in full, but I just couldn’t get down to do it.
Before we get to my actual list I would like to thank each and every one of you readers. Without you, I honestly probably would have given this up a long time ago. Sure, on this site I give my opinion on music, but it is really you guys/gals that count. I don’t know how I could repay you all for visiting American Aftermath these past two years. You have really made it worth while. Even the haters who talked shit, I appreciate you fucks also.
We here at American Aftermath are readying our very own year end lists, to be unleashed this Friday. We have asked some friends and musicians to submit their very own Best of 2012 List, which we will be posting throughout the week and here we go. Read on to find out what members of Pelican, Clinging To The Trees of A Forest Fire, Black Anvil, Bone Dance and A Fucking Elephant were jamming to this year.
Yo, what’s good, kiddos? You know, this time of year is a big time to catch up on releases to prepare for year-end lists and something that I have come to fucking adore is the music app Spotify. I love this thing. Not only does it stream full albums, but it’s fucking free. So yeah, I’ve been Spotifying like crazy all week and it has really helped me out with working on my list. Here are a few albums that I have been listening to that may or may not end up on my list. If you’re into ’em, check ’em out. Also, don’t forget to tell us your favorite release of 2012. Enjoy.

Bone Dance have released yet another track, the fourth to be exact, from their upcoming self titled record. This track is called “Children Having Children” and it is full of hard hitting hectic hardcore haberdashery! How about that alliteration? I think the song speaks for itself pretty well. Check it out now!
Bone Dance have announced an October East Coast tour in support of the band’s upcoming, bone crushing self titled album (October 2nd). If you have a brain in your head you will get out to one of these shows to have the innocence kicked right out of you. While you’re viewing the dates be sure to pre-order the new record while you are at it.
