My first encounter with Weekend Nachos was an advertisement for the album, Worthless, on the side panel of prominent metal blog, Invisible Oranges. But it was just that, an advertisement. At the time, I was an ignorant fuckhead attempting to present myself as a sophisticated underground death metal hipster. Luckily, that transformation never fully occurred and in a move of self-rediscovery to reclaim all I had lost in my egotistical musings, I turned to hardcore. Aiding that transition back to the mosh was none other than Weekend Nachos, a band whose brash juxtaposition of the ridiculous with an inane amount of vitriol and hatred would lead them to become one of my favorite bands ever. I recently had the chance to interview John Hoffman, lead vocalist and prominent song-writer of Weekend Nachos, to talk about the band’s upcoming record, the Weekend Nachos theme park, Attack Attack, the one time John met Robert Englund, the ethics and function of labels and more. Check it all out after the jump.

Weekend Nachos pull a “Forrest Gump” with this recent studio report for their upcoming single, “Watch You Suffer”. That’s all I have to say about that. Expect “Watch You Suffer” to be released sometime during January via A389 Recordings.
Jockish powerviolence band,
Weakened Machos Weekend Nachos, have announced that they will be releasing their new single, “Watch You Suffer” in January on A389 Recordings. The single will contain an exclusive B-side.

Chicago based powerviolence outfit Weekend Nachos announced via Facebook that the band will be recording a new 7 inch single in time for the A389 Fest in January. According to the post, the 7″ will contain a song from the band’s upcoming fourth full length LP as well as an exclusive B-Side. More info as it is announced.
With a self-entrusted goal to recreate music befitting the vigor and integrity of 80s and 90s extreme metal, the Chicago-based five piece metallic hardcore behemoth known as Like Rats have crafted a Gustav Gun of sorts, a 1,350 ton wrecking machine spewing steel shells of brutality and violence. Previously teased on two notable compilations this year(Casa De Diversion Vol. III/A389 MMXII Mixtape), the 2009 bred metallic hardcore group’s debut LP is finally here and it is truly a force to be reckoned with. Combining d-beat rhythms with the riffplay and dissonant harmony of early death metal, Like Rats conjure up the most malevolent spirits of metal past, all with the punishing bite of modern production.
