Vaderbomb is pumped for the May 18th show with Tragedy and Xerxes at the Chestnut House – and are ready to put their money where their masked mouths are.
As of Midnight this morning, Little Heart Records has put up Late One’s full length for pre-order and released the album art and title. It’s going to be called (or is called?) “…Like The Day After A Heavy Rain” and you can plop down some dollars for it at the following URL:
After several months of laying low, Louisville’s Late Ones has emerged with their full length release “…Like The Day After a Heavy Rain.” Twelve new songs of pop-punk and introspective melody (but don’t worry, they still wrote a couple songs about heartbreak). This follow up to 2011’s “nailbiter” 7″ proves that while Late Ones will never get tired of playing the music the grew up and continue to love, they will learn how to bend the rules of pop punk into something of their own – turn the volume up.
It is with a heavy heart that I announce that Mike Pascal will no longer be a member of Coliseum. For over seven years, Mike has been our bass player and like a younger brother to me. He joined the band in Fall 2004 for our first extended tour and made his recorded debut in Coliseum on the Goddamage EP a few months later, playing every show since then and on every following release. We’ve traveled the world together and had more great times than I can count. While this is difficult at the moment, Mike’s departure from the band is the right thing for him and I know we will all be better for it.
There are certainly times when I’ve considered throwing in the towel and putting an end to Coliseum, but ultimately I remain as inspired and passionate about the band as ever. There are always peaks and valleys and there have been times when I felt like we were fighting a losing battle, but the good has always outweighed the bad. Coliseum played its first show just over eight years ago and I am humbled by all we’ve accomplished, all the people we’ve met, all the places we’ve played, all the bands we’ve toured with and all of the great guys who have been members of the band. I feel incredibly lucky to continue to have Carter as a bandmate and Temporary Residence as our label. We are very excited about the new material we’ve been writing and look forward to recording the fourth Coliseum album this Fall.
We will play our show with Tragedy in Louisville on May 18th with a friend filling in on bass and will take our time finding a new permanent member. Thanks for your continued support, it means the world to us.

Seeing as though a number of kids currently going to shows (as well as many alumni) have come from Eastern High School here in Jefferson Co., I thought it’d be a good thing to share that again this year, Eastern’s art students are competing in the 2012 Vans Custom Culture competition. The competition, as you can read below, gives students a pair of vans and lets them draw/paint/whatever on them to personalize them. It may seem a bit ‘Anarchy for sale’ to some people, but the winning school gets $50,000 for their art program!! That’s a pretty awesome prize for many schools, including Eastern, who have had their budgets cut to nothing in the past decade. Unless you’re a total prick, you should be able to get behind that. Eastern is the only Kentucky school to make it to the final 50 out of over 1,000 schools, according to art teacher Mrs. Hamilton-Cooper. You can view the submissions below, and read an article on the project that Mrs. Hamilton-Cooper sent along for more info.
