Red Fang Book Headlining Shows

Red Fang

Here’s some news that’s sure to get Canadian fans amped. Red Fang have lined up some North American festival appearances and headliners ahead of their upcoming tour with Opeth and In Flames. Sadly, there’s no New York date. Those shows follow below: 8/31: Seattle, WA @ Bumbershoot Festival 9/9: Eugene, OR @ Cuthbert Amphitheater (feat. […]

Opeth Streaming New Album

Pale Communion

If you wanna hear it, you’ll have to go here. Because they did not make the stream accessible to everyone, just Pitchfork. I will be spending the morning with the album, and giving Pitchfork lots of traffic. Opeth’s Pale Communion is set to arrive on August 25, my birthday. Pre-order it here, and receive an […]

Whitechapel, Upon A Burning Body To Tour

It's happening...

Surely, somewhere, someone must give a fuck. Maybe, maybe not. I’m going to go out on a limb and say some of the readers of this blog foster secret boners for Whitechapel. I mean, someone’s listening to them. Everyone can’t hate them. The band will head out with Upon A Burning Body and Glass Cloud […]

No Devotion Line Up U.S. Shows

No Devotion

The band No Devotion — essentially the Lostprophets, without the pervert — will be playing a bunch of shows in the United States starting next month. The band is fronted by Geoff Rickly of Thursday and United Nations; he’s a genuinely cool person. You meet him, and there’s no pretense, which is refreshing. The follow […]

Emmure, Acacia Strain Dates Leak

The Acacia Strain

Man. You couldn’t get me to go to this tour if you promised me Kate Upton would be working a glory hole in the bathroom at the venue. For reals. Emmure and The Acacia Strain will head out on the “Eternal Enemies Tour” this fall. Dates for the trek follow. They leaked online yesterday. Stray […]

In Flames Release Music Video

In Flames

If you turn the volume down, you’d think it was a Linkin Park video. If you turn the volume on, you’re going to think its not an In Flames song. The video is for a track called “Through Oblivion,” and is a fucking departure if ever there was one. I wonder why In Flames totally […]

At The Gates Finish New Album

At The Gates

One of the year’s most anticipated albums (at least from where I’m standing) is now recorded. Seminal Swedish metal act At the Gates have completed recording, mixing and mastering their comeback LP At War With Reality. The disc will be in stores October 28. It was recorded at Studio Fredman in Gothenburg and was mixed […]

Emmure, The Acacia Strain To Tour

The Acacia Strain

Apparently, this is a momentous occasion. From what I can gather, the two obese fucks who front both these bands had some sort of an altercation five years ago. Ever since, there’s been some sort of bad blood between the two bands, who are just about as equally worthless, in my opinion. Seems the bands […]

Unearth Name New One


The name of the next Unearth album is kind of underwhelming. It is Watchers of Rule. This, according to a report available here. The album will be released October 28 on eOne Music. Who knows? Maybe it’ll even be listenable? Unearth announcing a new album gets me about as excited as a colorectal exam makes […]

Mastodon Bulk Up Gojira Tour With More Dates


If you were bummed about the Mastodon tour not making a stop in your town prior to today, perhaps maybe you’ll be in luck now. The band’s added some stops to its scheduled for North American tour with Gojira and Kvelertak. This is the second leg of the trek, mind you. Mastodon have a new […]
