Neurosis guitarist/vocalist Steve Von Till has premiered the title track from his upcoming fourth solo record and follow up to 2008’s A Grave Is a Grim Horse, A Life Unto Itself, over at The Quietus. The emotionally-charged, seven-minute track is propelled by Von Till‘s folk-tinged guitar arrangements and his raspy baritone. Combined with pedal steel and viola, “A Life Unto Itself” brings dusty, Western landscapes to mind. Head over to The Quietus to stream it now.
A Life Unto Itself will be released on May 4 via Neurot Recordings.
Corrections House (Neurosis, Yakuza, etc) have premiered their cover of Neil Young‘s “Cortez The Killer” over at Noisey. The cover, while more acoustic centered, is very faithful to the original (which can be streamed after the break). Stream the cover for yourself at this location.
Corrections House‘s U.S. tour begins this Sunday, November 30th. Those tour dates can be seen below.
Pitchfork have premiered a new track from Corrections House’s (Neurosis, Eyehategod, etc) forthcoming full length record, Last City Zero, which due out on October 29th via Neurot Recordings. The sprawling, eclectic tune is entitled “Serve of Survive” and is a noise-ridden industrial, electrically charged mutant bent on world domination. It’s like if Sleep fused together with Godflesh and Aphex Twin and got whacked out on black tar heroin. Head over to Pitchfork to see what I mean.
Corrections House (Neurosis, Yakuza, Eyehategod, etc) will release their fifty minute debut full length, entitled Last City Zero, on October 29th through Neurot Recordings. The experimental opus was produced by Sanford Parker and will contain the following eight tracks:
Corrections House (Neurosis, Yakuza, etc) are on a roll. The band released their debut 7″ not too long ago and now according to their Facebook page, they have already started working on their first full length effort. No other information has been released just yet since the album stages are still in their infancy. But we will keep you updated on all Corrections House happenings. In the meantime, check out their weird ass video for “Grin With a Purpose” below.
Corrections House (Neurosis, Yakuza, etc) have released their new music video for their entrancing song “Grin With a Purpose”. The track comes from their debut 7″ that the band released earlier this year. The video revolves around a mysterious driver in a ski mask drifting along a deserted highway, witnessing strange figures in the desert among other things. It’s pretty much a big interpretive art piece. You can stream the video below.
Thirteen years after its release, the long out of print debut solo album from Steve Von Till (Neurosis), As the Crow Flies, will be reissued by Neurot Recordings respectively. The reissued acoustic album will bear new artwork and packaging and will see a release on May 13th in Europe and May 14th in North America in LP, CD and digital formats. I personally really enjoy this album and I am excited that it is getting the reissue treatment. This album is just a haunting and heart-wrenching experience. It definitely has to be heard. Check out a track from the album below.
You may remember the horrific bus accident that Baroness was involved in last year. The band members are recovering very well from the accident but, as you can imagine, their medical expenses are ridiculous. In a true act of love and kindness, friends of the band have launched a relief fund for them. These friends include Mastodon, Meshuggah, Neurosis, Season of Mist Records, Circle Takes the Square and a lot more. The aptly named Baroness Relief will hold a benefit auction in which the aforementioned bands will auction of instruments, LP’s, signed posters and other merchandise they have donated. The upcoming auction, that will take place on eBay, (no date has been set as of yet) has been organised by Baroness’ sound engineer Loopy Fiasco, Relapse Records’ Rennie Jaffe and the band’s “web dude”. Baroness’ “web dude” made it clear that “all proceeds from this auction will be given directly to the band and crew affected in as transparent way as possible.” We will keep you updated on the auction as more info becomes available. Until then, check out some of the things people have donated to the auction below!
The Melvins have announced the release of a new, ridiculously titled covers album entitled Everybody Loves Sausages. This compilation of cover songs will see a release through Ipecac on April 30th and will see the band (both traditional line up and Melvins Lite line up) covering the likes of Venom, The Kinks, Throbbing Gristle, Queen, David Bowie and more. Some special guests will make appearance on the record as well, such as Scott Kelly (Neurosis) and Clem Burke of Blondie. Frontman Buzz Osborne had this to say on the upcoming, meat filled record:
Corrections House, the sludge supergroup containing members of Yakuza, Neurosis and Eyehategod, have released a short teaser video for what seems to be their debut full length record. The album is apparently called Hoax the System according the video title. No other information has been released so far but be sure to check out the teaser below. Also, don’t forget to go to one of Corrections House’s shows in the coming weeks for a sneak peak of this legendary gathering of musicians. I have posted the tour dates below as well.
Neurosis’ Scott Kelly, Yakuza’s Bruce Lamont and Eyehategod’s Mike IX Williams and musician/producer Sanford Parker will be hitting the road together in early 2013. These musicians will each play a solo set before coming together in a sludge supergroup dubbed Corrections House. No other details have been released on this upcoming group but regardless, this sounds awesome. Take a gander at the full touring schedule below.
The mighty Neurosis have begun booking some U.S. tour dates that will inevitably lead up to their performance at Hellfest in France. Only a handful of dates have been released thus far and more may be on the way. It has yet to be said. The dates as they stand currently can be viewed below. It’s friggin’ Neurosis! Don’t miss out.
