The fourth and final installation in the Human Performance series of EPs by storied North Bay hardcore band Sabertooth Zombie is set for a March 3rd release on Twelve Gauge Recs. The legacy and roots of SZ go deep into the hardcore scene of the Bay Area. Some of their peers include Ceremony, Trash Talk, and No Statik, among others. No Sir, another top quality Bay Area hardcore band, share members with the Tooth. No Sir’s breakthrough Lp, ’13’s The Future Is Bright, was released on Twelve Gauge. Do you see what’s going on here ,people? Do you see a pattern?  You see how everything ties in here?

Always the hardest rockin’ and bluesiest hardcore band of their scene or perhaps even their generation, SZ on their newest release Human Performance IV, draw upon a legion of disparate influences and inspirations for the recording, (recorded and mixed by Sam Pura at The Panda Studios and mastered by Piper Payne),
from Merle Haggard and Pink Floyd, to outlaw country, Jack Kerouac, and noise rock everything adds up to what is sure to make for an interesting headphone listen and hopefully, (fingers crossed), energetic live show.

Continue on after the break for the EP’s album cover art, track listing, and a link to live footage of Sabertooth Zombie’s performance at Anaheim’s Chain Reaction.

TRASH TALK Premiere Music Video For “The Hole”

Trash-TalkHardcore heathens Trash Talk have revealed the music video for their track “The Hole,” which comes off of the bands new album No Peace (or Nope Ace, depending).

You know you want to jam some new Trash Talk and you know you want to see the video that accompanies it. Check out the video for “The Hole” after the jump. Rad.      Continue reading

TRASH TALK Mini-Documentary Now Playing

Trash-TalkYou either love or you hate Trash Talk. Personally, I love them and the sense of family that this band has. More than that is their sense of freedom to just do whatever the fuck they want. The band has been captured on film by Never Hide Films for a five minute mini-documentary. It’s really cool and insightful when it comes to how the band operates. Check it out after the jump.      Continue reading

Thomas Pridgen Joins TRASH TALK

It looks like Trash Talk have a new drummer on their hands according to a recent tweet. Ex-Mars Volta drum machine Thomas Pridgen has officially joined the hardcore act. No one has yet to mentioned what happened to ex-Trash Talk drummer Sam Bosson however. I am anxious to see how much more aggression and virtuosity Pridgen brings to this band.

American Aftermath Exclusive: Watch A Full DEATH GRIPS Set From Last Years Fun Fun Fun Fest


Last November I attended the wonderful Fun Fun Fun Fest in downtown Austin, TX. The act I was most excited to see (not including Danzig playing The Misfits songs :sigh:) was undoubtedly the hip hop phenomenon known as Death Grips. The group played two shows; one night and one day. The footage featured in this article was taken at the night performance.

The bill for the show that night was originally B.L.A.C.K.I.E, Trash Talk, Death Grips and Kool Keith. However, due to some personal issues Trash Talk was unable to perform. Normally, that in and of itself would ruin any show for me, but this was fucking DFGRPZ, and not only that, it was my first time to see them. It’s probably a given due to the amount in which I fan boy over these guys, but the show was fucking amazing… Don’t take my word for it, watch the rest of DFGRPZ set after the jump.

119? Fuck That, Call 911: Watch This Mini TRASH TALK Documentary

To commemorate the release of their new album “119“, this past Saturday hardcore band Trash Talk held a little shindig in their LA based warehouse home. The special free event consisted of two shows and a “barbecue”. Luckily for all us non LA residents, journalists from the hipster news outlet Pitchfork to document the mayhem. You can watch the 7 minute video above. It’s got everything from clips of Tyler, The Creator moshing on kids to skateboarding to a kid getting a gnarly cut on his forearm (which is what I am referencing in the title).

Both shows featured in the video look like so much fun. I’ve got a bunch of friends who live in LA and I am pissed at them for not going to this… If I lived there, I would have been at this shit in a second. If you haven’t really checked these guys out before then watch this video and cop a copy of Trash Talk’s new release “119“.

Corrupt And Mistreated: TRASH TALK Make Track Off “119” Available For Streaming

Trash Talk‘s new album 119 is now available for pre-order over on the Odd Future estore. The 14 track album will hit the streets and web on Oct. 9th via Odd Future Records. It’s worth noting that one of the tracks features rappers Hodgy Beats and Tyler, The Creator. I can only wonder what’s that going to be like..

The band has put up another song off 119 on soundcloud (which you can stream below). “Exile On Broadway” continues to flirt with the band’s new-found love for mid-tempo punk riffs. It’s a solid track but is still rather forgettable even for being barely over a minute in length.

Tracklist –

  • 1. Eat the Cycle
  • 2. Exile on Broadway
  • 3. My Rules
  • 4. F.E.B.N.
  • 5. Uncivil Disobedience
  • 6. Blossom & Burn (Feat. Hodgy Beats & Tyler, The Creator)
  • 7. Reasons
  • 8. F**k Nostalgia
  • 9. Apathy
  • 10. Thanks, But No Thanks
  • 11. Bad Habits
  • 12. Swinging to Pieces
  • 13. For the Lesser Good
  • 14. Dogman

WTF Moment: Is That LIL’ WAYNE On Stage With TRASH TALK???

Ummm yeah, so apparently that is LilWayne on stage with Trash Talk…. Or rather on stage with the Trash Talk/Odd Future collaboration known Trash Wang. As always, OFWGKTA closes with their anthem “Radicals” and uses Trash Talk as their backing band, but this time Weezy comes out on stage to rap scream along. After this awful noise, Trash Talk goes into “F.Y.R.A“; I honestly doubt Wanye stayed out for their but we will never know cause no one at the show cared to film Trash Talk’s set. :(

It’s obvious that this is going to sound like shit but you can watch the video below if you’d like. I know I was just hating and all but if I were there I totally would have been turnt up and stage diving on people…

Trash Talk have released their new, Tyler the Creator directed music video for their new single “F.E.B.N”. The video is mainly a performance video shot in black white. The hardcore quartet jams out while acts of hooliganism are being performed in the background. The song will appear on the group’s upcoming record, 119, which will be released on October 9th via Odd Future Records. Apparently Tyler and Hodgy Beats from OFWGKTA are slated to appear on the track “Blossom & Burn”. I’m not sure how I feel about that. Anyways, check out the video below.
