Greetings everyone, a quick update before we head out on tour later this week:
The COLISEUM / SUPERCHUNK split 7” is available now online from Shirt Killer, we have 100 copies for sale on Shirt Killer and about 80 copies for sale on tour… This sucker sold out within hours in stores on Record Store Day and will go very quickly on Shirt Killer. I think our plan is to sell five a night on tour so they last for a couple of weeks. The point is: grab it while you can!
The BLACK GOD 7” out now on No Idea and also available from Shirt Killer, you can get it with the Superchunk split to save on shipping if you want both records. Black God is Rob Pennington, Nick Thieneman, Ben Sears and me, kind of a continuation of Black Cross, but a bit more stripped down with short songs and more pummeling Wipers meets DC obsession. We’ll have plenty of copies of the 7” on tour with Coliseum too.
Our split live LP with BURNING LOVE via Sound Study Recordings will hopefully be in our hands at the May 8th Gainesville show… Fingers crossed! The CD will be out in July via Tee Pee Records.
Self-titled LP on Bandcamp: Our first album has been out of print for over four years, so we’ve made it available as a low-priced download from Bandcamp. Check it out here.
We are VERY excited to hit the road starting this week, these will be our first shows in the US and Canada since late last summer. It’s going to be a blast! We’ll be heading west in June/July, so keep an eye out for dates soon.
See you at the shows,
Ryan / Coliseum
