CODE ORANGE Streaming New Track “My World”; Announces Fall Tour With TWITCHING TONGUES

code_orange

The recently renamed Code Orange have released a new track entitled “My World” off of their upcoming sophomore LP, I Am King, in conjunction with the opening of pre-orders for the record as well as announcements  for an upcoming Fall tour with direct support from Los Angeles metallic hardcore act Twitching Tongues and indirect support from peers (Soul Search, War Hungry, Nails, Discourse, Axis and Blistered) whose appearances will vary by tour date. Aside from the trimming of denomination, the first two singles released for I Am King so far, the title track along with this most recent number, feature a similar change (in my opinion, for the better), narrowing down the band’s technical metalcore assault for a simpler approach that still retains the band’s experimental edge. Stream “My World” exclusively over at Alternative Press here, peep the poster and details for Code Orange’s upcoming tour below and pre-order I Am King via Deathwish Inc. hereContinue reading

TWITCHING TONGUES Streaming Live Album “World War Live”

10418854_755550121154669_3598106001384849608_n

The strange Los Angeles metallic hardcore ensemble Twitching Tongues are currently streaming a new “live” album entitled World War Live exclusively over at Decibel Magazine. Recorded live with an audience of twenty sum members, the dichotomous fake/real record(with art by Sean Taggart (Crumbsuckers, Agnostic Front)) simultaneously functions as a best-of album for the group with jokes, cameos and easter eggs that followers of California hardcore will be able to pick out. The band’s official statement for the record is as follows:

Recorded live in the Van Nuys stadium called THE PIT in front of twenty screaming fans, this is (not) a true testament to the event that occurs when this band hits the stage. The band was tired of hearing “they’re better live,” so here it is. With a setlist comprised mostly of songs from their latest LP, In Love There Is No Law, as well as previous material, the record almost doubles as a best-of the band’s current stage. The album cover was made by the legendary Sean Taggart (Carnivore, Crumbsuckers, Agnostic Front) and hardcopy buyers will regret their purchases slightly less with the addition of bonus material.

Stream World War Live here and pre-order the physical record, which promises extra material, via Closed Casket Activities here. Alternatively, attendees of this year’s This Is Hardcore festival can purchase the record from Closed Casket before everyone else gets it shipped.

 

Best Of 2013: Eric’s Favorite Albums Of The Year

2013best

Hello again, fellow Aftermathers! My prolonged absence from the American Aftermath world officially ends NOW with this penultimate annual post, a small but personally necessary pittance to the plentiful albums and artists that sustained me throughout this most bountiful year in extreme music. The following thirty item list reflects full-length albums only with an aural adherence to the hardcore and powerviolence realms as per my listening habits this year. A ton of awesome death metal revivals as well as resurgences from other notables in the general metal realm happened this year (Gorguts, Carcass, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Ulcerate etc.) of which I listened(or rather actively listened) to practically NONE. I simply wasn’t feeling it at this year and intend to return to survey these releases at another time. Thanks to the Aftermath crew especially Ross Gnarly, Lane “The Machine” Oliver, and Josh Huddleston, the bands and musicians, and last but not least, you, the readers! Peep the list after the jump.

Twitching Tongues are currently streaming a new track entitled “World War V” off of their upcoming August 20th expected sophomore album, In Love There Is No Law, exclusively over at Decibel. Paying homage to the Pete Steele helmed Carnivore not only in title, “World War V” is further proof of the evolution and smoothed metallic integration of the Southern California group, a cohesive double-bass drum backed modicum of fury and doomish melody. Check out the track here and pre-order In Love There Is No Law via Closed Casket Activities here.
