Xerxes, who has a 7″ split with Former Thieves coming out soon, has just signed for a new full-length record with No Sleep Records. No Sleep may be familiar to some of you for putting out records from La Dispute, The Wonder Years, Former Thieves, and many more.
A thank you note from Sean Naamani in regards to the Ants In An Argument reunion the other night:
“I would like to extend my thanks to everyone who came out to Cahoots last night to support the AIAA reunion show along with the Revenants. It was an incredible show which featured a surprise ending featuring the performance of the notorious Vagrants song “Rejected Youth. We also had guest appearances from Jason of The Revenants and Spectre from old Louisville hardcore punk band Charisma Society. This was the most fun show that we have ever played and most of the credit for that goes out to the fans. Meanwhile, Nick, Will, and me (Sean) are continuing to play together (going under a new name and writing new material.) so keep your eyes peeled for bands featuring ex-AIAA members. Thanks again for showing your support.”
“So, we haven’t done an Argument in a while, and now we are. Bold, yes? Our triumphant return Argument is about… well… what should we argue about at all? Here we offer an in depth, and cutting edge analysis of the inner workings of our minds, replete with Robocop references, and pointless bickering. Your long wait is over.”

If you went to shows during the Primizee’s Pizza and/or Pandamonium Arcade eras of Louisville Punk Rock, you almost definitely recognize the name Ants In An Argument. If you want to relive those days, Sean has geared up for another show tomorrow night at Cahoot’s. They’re playing with The Revenants and Alcohawk, and it’ll cost you $5 and start at/around 10pm. DJ Count Grozny will be playing records in-between and after the bands.
Last weekend, Ear X-Tacy had another ‘After Dark’ show/event. They’ve really been on point lately, and this show was no exception. Unfortunately, Keith couldn’t be there for Another Mistake’s set, but Peter filled in and everything sounded great. If you weren’t there, here are some photos to (hopefully) prompt you to come out to their next ‘After Dark’ event which will feature Prideswallower’s crushing riffs paired with Straight A’s odd-but-awesomeness. Yeah, that last sentence reads like shit, but I’m not a writer.
