Twitching Tongues Announce Tour

Twitching Tongues

I haven’t listened to Twitching Tongues enough (if at all) to formulate an actual opinion. I honestly can’t remember ever listening to them. But I know a handful of people who claim they’re decent. I can’t vouch for their taste. They look like I’d hate them, but I’m not really interested in finding out whether […]

Terror, Goatwhore Added To New England Metal & Hardcore Festival

"Hey cookie, I dropped my pencil"

They might as well just release the entire lineup already. It’s not like the bill doesn’t already fucking rule. You think adding Terror’s going to get some kid to go, “Wait one hot fucking second! I wasn’t sold until this Terror announcement. Fuck it, I’ll go.” At this point, people are either going or not […]

Two More Bands Added To New England Metal & Hardcore Fest

Job For A Cowboy

Oh yes, folks. The New England Metal and Hardcore Festival keeps growing. Like that thing in your shorts. Keep taking those vitamins, and it’ll be a full three inches…from the GROUND! Job For A Cowboy and D.R.I. were both added to this year’s Metalfest bill. Metalfest goes down at The Palladium in Worcester, Massachusetts, on […]

Dillinger Escape Plan, Allegaeon Tapped For New England Metal & Hardcore Festival

The annual New England Metal and Hardcore Festival XV revealed today that a bunch of bands have been added to the already impressive bill. Which bands? How about Allegaeon, Alpha & Omega, Born Low, MurderDeathKill […]

Early Graves, Xibalba, Hoods Tapped For The Rumble

Early Graves

What is The Rumble, you ask? No, it is not a show on MTV pitting awesome band dudes against those talentless fucks from all the channel’s reality shows. The Rumble is a Chicago hardcore festival that is set to take place this year at April 26 and April 27, at two separate venues. On April […]

Nails Announce Live Dates, New Album Plans


That’s right, kiddies. Nails will be hitting the road for a three-day January assault of the West Coast. Dubbed “United & Strong 2013,” the crushing and short tour will feature Nails headlining three California dates with support from Death Threat, Twitching Tongues, and Incendiary. These shows will serve as a record release weekend for their […]

Veil Of Maya, Acacia Strain To Tour

Veil of Maya

Veil of Maya. The Acacia Strain. What do these two bands have in common? Nothing, seemingly. Yet, they will be sharing co-headlining duties on a tour this November…the dates for which you’ll find conveniently at the end of this post. The tour will also boast the likes of Upon A Burning Body, Volumes and Twitching […]

Mosh For Food 2 Announced

Impending Doom

That is correct, you sorry excuse for a grocer. The Nitty Gritty in Rancho Cucamonga, California, will play host September 29 to “Mosh For Food 2,” a benefit festival where the price of admission is four cans of food. That’s pretty righteous, actually. The show will serve as the first gig ever for I Am […]
