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.
I unfortunately have never been graced with the opportunity to see Neurosis live, but I know that live visuals are a huge part of their performance. Much like how they are to a Godspeed You! Black Emperor show for instance. Well according to an official band statement, the band will be getting rid of the live visual presentations in order to reinvent their live shows. Which in turn means that the band will be parting ways with their visual artist Josh Graham (A Storm of Light, Battle of Mice, etc). Here are the official statements:
Fucking sludge! One of the most powerful, crushing, dooming albums I’ve heard this year is the new release by Amenra, Mass V. This album will be released on the 27th via Neurot Records and if you have slept on any of the news I’ve been bringing you about the band, get on your game, weirdos. Although it is only four tracks long, this album is a bludgeoning force to be reckoned with. If you are curious about the outcome of this beast, head your happy ass on over to CVLT Nation and get your sludge on. Enjoy a taste of Amenra below and then head over and get bent. Continue reading »
