Xerxes has just wrapped up initial recording with Kevin Ratterman for their upcoming 11-song record for No Sleep Records. Here’s the No Sleep press release from a few days back:
Louisville’s newest youngbloods Xerxes have entered the studio today with the amazing Kevin Ratterman (Coliseum, My Morning Jacket) to begin production on their debut full-length.
Look for the new record Winter 2011/2012.
September 9 – Barnesville, OH @ The Lakeview House *
September 10 – DeKalb, IL @ Middlewest Fest *
September 11 – Columbus, OH @ Carabar *
September 18 – Chattanooga, TN @ Southeast Hardcore Fest
* = w/ Pianos Become The Teeth
Xerxes took shape in early 2009 in Louisville, KY. What was once may soon again be the hub of some of the most ferocious and original music coming out of the country’s punk and hardcore underbelly. Xerxes’ sound channels the energy and passion of mid-90’s originators You and I and Saetia, while adding the more upbeat and brutal thrash mentality of contemporaries such as Trash Talk and Ampere, making for a sound that runs the gamut of blast-beat aggression and emotional rumination.

Local pop-punk gateway band Alcohawk have decided to cash out their Scene PointsTM cards for dunes of coke and move on to bigger, better things. Like snorting hot dogs and fancy wines on the golf course. Or eating boogers off the street in DC. On the subject, Adam Rains reports in from his secret base in the Grinstead Hills that “I heard Graham once tried to smash Paul’s head with a stolen ATM for the last bag of meth.” Which just illuminates why Alcohawk will be playing their last show at Cahoots on October 22nd with The Slow Death, Arms Aloft, and Late Ones. They request that all folks in possession of Party Panties and Alcohawk shirts to suit up for some drunken backflips and epic ringtones played into the PA and after all of that, their set. Entrance to the event will cost you $5 and require a healthy GrahamJob (give it some gusto) to leave.
As mentioned in the (slightly) earlier post, Late Ones will be having a 7″ release show at Cahoots on Saturday, August 20th. Can’t come out or just don’t like Cahoots? The band and Little Heart Records will be putting on a listening party at Derby City Chop shop earlier in the evening at 6pm. Come by, drink an Ale8, back your dudes, and be there between 6 and 8pm.

Little Heart Records and Ear X-Tacy are teaming up for a showcase of the LHR band family.
Skyscraper Stereo, Late Ones, Uh Huh Baby Yeah, and Talk Of Spring
Saturday, September 3rd @ Ear X-Tacy. 7pm,
(Via Puckett): The two showcase shows coming up (Cahoots on August 20th and Ear X-Tacy on September 3rd) are us showing off our diverse line up of acts and sounds. We’ve got hip hop, dance rock, pop punk… and we are super stoked that Ear X-Tacy and Cahoots were down for sharing it with everyone.
Skyscraper Stereo, Late Ones and Uh-Huh Baby Yeah are playing both events. Cahoots has The Codas opening and will be the release party for Late Ones’ ‘nailbiter.’ Talk of Spring opens the Ear X-Tacy show.
Also, one or both of these shows might have a special surprise. We’ve got something cooking, but I don’t want to ruin it!
