CANTO: Every Time I Die, Lesser Glow, …and Oceans, and More

lesserglow

Quiet day everywhere except in my mind.

  • It seems as though Every Time I Die has teased about half a minute of new music. If anyone has managed to form an opinion off of those brief seconds, the floor is all yours!
  • Not the most surprising thing, but Rocklahoma 2020 has been canceled. The event, scheduled for Memorial Day weekend, made the announcement yesterday. Five Finger Death Punch, Slipknot, and Staind were the planned headliners.
  • Lesser Glow have a new album dropping on May 29th through Pelagic Records called Nullity. A track titled “The Great Imitator” is streaming now, and a pre-order link is available for you to take advantage of.
  • We’ll close with a new music video from …and Oceans for the track “Five of Swords”. Their next album, Cosmic World Mother, drops on May 8th through Season of Mist.

CANTO: Knotfest, Full of Hell, Currents, and More

Full_of_Hell_portrait-2

I hope gluttony treated everyone well last week.

  • Let’s begin with a tour. Those are always fun and easy. Exist have announced that they will be joining Monotheist and Replacire for a brief tour this coming February. Mostly east coast dates, which is good news for me.
  • In a huge development from this past weekend, Knotfest Mexico didn’t go so well. Slipknot had to cancel their headlining appearance because fans had broken the barricade directly in front of the stage. In response? Said fans lit stuff on fire. Yay! (And by yay I mean boooo.)
  • Bummer news. Full of Hell had their van stolen. And with it tons of gear and clothing, obviously. The good news is that they received a ton of support, financial and otherwise. Hopefully 2020 brings these guys good things, because they rule.
  • Currents dropped a new music video for “Poverty of Self” a couple days ago. Their second studio album will be out sometime next spring, but you can catch them on a few more European dates through the 7th. Anyway, enjoy the vid.

CANTO: Tool, Slipknot, Hyaena, and More

It’s hawt out.

  • Hey look, we have the title of the next Tool album. It’s going be called Fear Inoculum. August 30th is the release date, and that graphic is super trippy. Moving on.
  • So for those unaware, the Knotfest Roadshow is officially underway. Slipknot always bring out the adrenaline in their audiences, and the show in San Bernardino last Saturday was no exception. In fact, Corey Taylor stopped midway through a song because the pits were getting particularly dangerous.
  • If you are in the UK, you might be interested the first wave of bands announced for the Chaos Theory Festival. The event takes place February 29th, 2020 and so far we know Vodun, Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard, and Gold will be there.
  • Would you like to djent away the rest of the day? If so, here’s a new video from Hyaena for a track called “Stolen Hero”. They have a new album called Poison Pen dropping later this fall.

CANTO: I Prevail, Slipknot, Neckbeard Deathcamp, and More

Amazing! I have somehow emerged more tired from the weekend than when I entered it!

  • Neckbeard Deathcamp is hitting the road in May and June for “The Free Speech In America Tour” with Theories, Convictions, Wvrm, and Dryad on select dates.
  • Saw this coming. ICYMI last week, Chris Fehn brought some financial claims up against the rest of Slipknot. Today, it was announced that he is no longer a member of the band. Again, saw that coming.
  • Yesterday was St. Paddys’ Day. And what better way to celebrate the reinforcin’ o’ the stereotypes than with shed blood at a Dropkick Murphys’ show in Boston. It’s all just so… predictable.
  • We’ll close today with a new song and video from Detroit’s I Prevail. The title is “Paranoid”, and the track will be featured on their upcoming sophomore full length Trauma, which drops on March 29th through Fearless Records.
