I’m going to a concert tomorrow. Like, a real one. Weird. Yet, exciting.
I know this is coming in super later, so I’ll try and keep this succinct. Weedeater has announced a super dope U.S. tour with Rebelmatic and others. Those dates run from early April to early June, and tickets can be acquired here.
Visions of Atlantis are releasing a new album on May 13th through Napalm Records, titled Pirates. That seems appropriate. Pre-orders are live at this location, and the first single and video, “Legion of the Seas”, is available here.
And we’ll close out with the new video from Dark Funeral. Check out “Leviathan” below. Technically, that came out a couple days ago, but whatever. We Are The Apocalypse is out on March 18th through Century Media. I trust that it’s good, but I’m still looking forward to finding out for myself.
Weedeater have announced the second leg of their 2021 U.S. tour. Those dates run from September 3rd through the 18th, and support will be in the form of The Atomic Bitchwax, Joe Buck Yourself, and Rebelmatic. Tickets can be acquired at this location.
Spirit Adrift are releasing a new 3-song EP titled Forge Your Future on August 27th through Century Media. Pre-orders for that are available here, and you can check out the lyric video for the title track immediately below. What a great way to close a work week.
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.
We’ll close with a new lyric video from Hecate Enthroned for “Plagued By Black Death”, which is taken from the reissue of 2013’s Virulent Rapture. That one drops this Friday (yep, that’s still September 25th).
Two weeks removed from Part 1 and we’re not out of the woods. And, quite to the contrary, we’re in the thick of it. Threat level 100….I guess. So much uncertainty, so much unknowing, so much virus, so much panic, so much hoarding, so much of all the bad stuff. We’re all tired of the ‘so much’ and it seems this thing is just getting a head of steam. Anyway, we’ve got a nice set of tunes to help push back the virus scares and bring forth the headbang; we’ve got Death, Obituary, Eyehategod, WASP, Katatonia, KISS, Mortician, and so much more. Indeed, all the bands you’d hold dear when trying to exorcize some demons and/or some asshole virus. So, jump inside that play button immediately below and try to forget, for just a second, what’s happening outside our windows. Maybe, just maybe, you find some sort of normalcy for a fleeting moment.
