Capra have announced a North American headlining tour, set to begin on October 4th. Support will be local for each of the 18 dates. Looks like more dates are going to be announced as well, which is cool. I expect to have a pretty full concert calendar this fall, and I’m not complaining.
Down have announced the NOLA Town Throwdown, which will take place at the Fillmore in New Orleans on August 13th. In-person and virtual tickets are available as well. It’s nice of them to make this event accessible to those outside of NOLA, even though I would argue this is probably only worth attending in-person. Shrug emoji.
Let’s wrap up with the new video from Year Of No Light for “Objurgation”. That track is, of course, taken from Consolamentum, which dropped on July 2nd through Pelagic Records.
Episode 77 of The Nine Circles Audio Thing covers the debut full length from Louisiana’s Capra, In Transmission. Buke again captains the episode with a light cast of the usual suspects in tow as they discuss, and break down this album, band, and its dual label release.
Good morning and welcome to another Nine Circles Saturday mixtape. This time around, we have the latest from The Mountain Goats (always cause for celebration), some Lord of the Rings themed grind, ripping death metal, and a whole lot more. Check it out, as always, at the link below. (ed’s note: also, a fresh and sick set from Inhuman Condition to close things out).
Oh shit, another stream event. Two of them actually! Voivod have announced streaming shows on May 30th and June 27th, the second and third installment of the “Hypercube Sessions”. You can purchase tickets for each event individually, or as a bundle.
Capra released a new video today for “Medusa”, and that sounds like the right thing to wrap up the week with. In Transmission is officially out today through Blacklight Media/Metal Blade, so be sure to pick it up here.
In Transmission has been a long time coming for the Lafayette, LA quartet. Over two years of writing and refining their craft, picking up a new frontperson, personal struggles and a global pandemic have certainly made it difficult for Capra, but it also hasn’t stopped them in the least bit. There’s a very good reason this debut is getting blown up by word of mouth and pushed out by a major label already. The band’s fresh, blistering take on hardcore and metal goes beyond simply being well-crafted music: it speaks to something deeply, profoundly human with an unrivaled emotional depth.
