Boston day tomorrow, so we’ll see how long I can keep this post going this week.
- Tool announced a North American tour, with dates mostly in October and November (preceded by Louder Than Life Festival on September 22). Tickets for those dates go on sale this coming Friday. Maybe I’ll give it a shot…
- Imperial Triumphant covered Radiohead’s “Paranoid Android”. That single was released through Century Media and comes ahead of their European tour. It’s the first in a series of covers, and the video for it can be seen here.
- Another tour! Overkill have North American July dates with labelmates Exhorder and Heathen. Those tickets, of course, also go on sale this coming Friday.
- Italian death metal project Sludge Keeper are releasing their debut, Slough Of Despair, on July 14 through Selfmadegod Records. Give “Mud Keepers” a listen here.
- I know this matters to a couple folks at 9C (spoiler: I’m not one of them). Drab Majesty is dropping a new EP on August 25 through Dais Records titled An Object in Motion. The video for “Vanity” can be found directly below.
“Ein Bier… bitte.”
