Igorrr have announced a North American tour next February and March with Melt-Banana and Vowws. This will be their first trek in support of Spirituality and Distortion, which is pretty cool. There’s some time to kill before these dates, but you can find tickets here.
Any of you pay attention to all the crackin’ singles released last week? If not, hit rewind and peruse our Canto posts to find out. Needless to say, this year is only getting better on the new metal front. Speaking of new metal, we’ve got entries from prog-tech death wonders Alustrium, a split of doom and fuzz from Dead Witches and Witchthroat Serpent (witchy), a slab of super heavy post-metal from Bossk, and a half dungeon synth half 80s horror flick soundtrack from supergroup Arelseum. And, as you surely are aware by now, so much more follows these four so do yourself and these bands a solid and make it rain.
Welcome back folks! Not only have we returned with more #content over here, but we are also back to something of the regularly scheduled Rainbows programming. After a brief but thought provoking sojourn into the world of harsh noise, we return with something that is decidedly much less harsh and noisy, but no less evocative and artistic, in every sense of the word. Synthpop/post-punk darlings Cold Cave seem poised to be the epitome of the modern-day resurgence of old-school cool, and on Fate in Seven Lessons, they show off a little bit of everything they bring to the table.
SATURDAY. Finally. What a week, right? But now it’s time for some R&R or whatever you’ve got on your plate for the weekend. And, whatever that is, we’ve got the soundtrack for it with this week’s mixtape of what we’ve been jamming since last Saturday. We’ve got new jams from Wolves in the Throne Room, Lantlos, Craven Idol, Perilaxe Occlusion, and Morgue Walker as well as some sorta new ones from Bodybox, Oathbreaker, Amenra, and Møl. Obviously, there’s more hiding under the hood so click on the play button below and crack that cold one, or get to doing whatever it is you’re doing. We got you.
Scrambling to get this done because why the hell not?
So everyone needs to spend a lot of money on Bandcamp next week. There’s a Juneteenth fundraiser next Friday, the 18th, where 100% of Bandcamp shares are going to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. Do it. Do it. Do it. I already have plenty lined up… obviously.
Weedeater have announced a U.S. tour this coming August. Support will be in the form of Joe Buck Yourself and Adam Faucett, and the party starts August 20th in Ashville. Tickets can be accessed at this link.
Machine Head greeted us with a new 3-track digital single today, Arrows In Words From The Sky, and you stream some of that here. That is also brought to us by Nuclear Blast.
And we should certainly wrap things up with the new Pain music video for “Party In My Head”, which is a vibe I can 100% fuck with. No word on new Hypocrisy things, but I do like me somePeter Tägtgren activity all the same. That’s also on the various streaming platforms.
