Coliseum- August 2010 news and tour info

Greetings everyone, we’re flying out to the Power Of The Riff festival in Los Angeles this weekend and wanted to drop a line with our upcoming tour dates and a new video for “Lost In Groningen”.

Western North American Tour with Burning Love:
Thanks to everyone who came out for the first half of the Coliseum / Burning Love North American tour. We’ll be kicking off the second leg starting August 27th in Chicago, all the dates are below. It’s been a while since we’ve been to most of these spots and we’re really looking forward to the tour.

House With A Curse LP/CD Out Now:
Our third album, House With A Curse, was released June 22nd on Temporary Residence Limited and seems to be our most well-received record yet. Folks at SPIN, Decibel, The Onion AV Club, Alternative Press, and many others had very nice and humbling words to say about the record. We’re incredibly happy with the record and it’s great to get it out there and share it with everyone. All of the colored vinyl from the first pressing is sold out, but the nice embossed / spot gloss LP jackets are still available from Temporary Residence and Shirt Killers.

New video for “Lost In Groningen”:
Our collaborators on the “Blind In One Eye” video, Matt Whitson and Justin Gaar, are part of the Emmy-winning Alabama Public Television program We Have Signal. They filmed us at the first show of our tour in June at the fabulous Bottletree in Birmingham and have given us an exclusive multi-camera / multi-track audio clip of “Lost In Groningen” to share prior to the airing of the show in coming months. The video is on our Facebook and Vimeo sites, so swing over and check it out!

European / UK Tour:
We’ll be returning to Europe and the UK for the first time since our 2008 tour with Converge and Integrity, this time with an awesome bill featuring Vancouver’s Bison BC and Norway’s Kvelertak as support. Spanning most of November and a bit of early December, we’re covering as much ground as we can manage and are so looking forward to returning to some of our favorite locations in the world. It’s going to be a great bill and a great time. Check out the dates below.

Actual Pain Mixtape:
I made a mixtape for Actual Pain’s blog that people seem to be digging, check it out if you’re so inclined. It’s one continuous track with some pretty cool transitions between the songs (if I do say so myself). Many of these song and artists were high in my rotation during the writing of House With A Curse. If you want the tracklisting, drop me a line and I’ll send it your way. You can download the mixtape here.

Okay, that’s about it for now, we have a lot of irons in the fire as always – some deluxe reissues planned, some new material recorded, and a never-ending stream of ideas and inspiration… We’ll keep you posted. See you at the shows.

Thanks –
