Coliseum news

May 1st, 2011

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

Thanks from Sean

May 1st, 2011

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.”


The Argument returns

May 1st, 2011

“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.

Ants in An Argument reunite this Friday

April 28th, 2011

Ants in an Argument reunion show flyer 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.
