From Ryan Patterson:
Greetings all. It’s been a while since the last Coliseum update…
First, we’re very happy to welcome Coliseum’s new drummer Carter Wilson to the fold. Carter hails from Birmingham and we tracked him down on the suggestion of Young Widows, who we thank very much for the tip. He joined the band in August and has seamlessly learned our old songs while diving headlong into new material. Many movies, burritos and good times have been shared in the last few months and we look forward to many more down the road. We’ll be hitting the road this month for the first time since June, debuting some new songs and playing our first batch of shows with Carter.

Hello folks. Just a brief news update.
We’ve modified our dusty old website with a blogspot account so as to provide news updates with greater frequency. This will act as a sort of placeholder site until we get our stuff together for a proper overhaul. The old site will no longer be updated other than new releases which will be accessible through the blog. Please go to www.louisvillenoise.com to check it out and check back often as we’re going to be adding updates regularly.
We’re very pleased to announce the upcoming release of the new Second Story Man album, Screaming Secrets. It will be released on December 5th on both CD and LP. This record has been over two years in the making and is easily the best work they have ever done. The release show will be at Skull Alley on 12/5 with openers Straight A’s and Softcheque.
From LEO’s Bluegrass Catastrophe –
“In September, Rodan and Shipping News co-founder Jason Noble was diagnosed with cancer and underwent massive surgery. The procedure removed most if the cancer, but Noble will still have to undergo treatment that could cost thousands. In an effort to help with Jason and his wife Kristin with medical costs, Shellac and Shannon Wright will play a benefit show Nov. 21 at The 930 Listening Room. Tickets to the all ages show are $17 (adv.), $20 (door), and go on sale this Friday, Oct. 9, at 10 a.m. at ear X-tacy and at The 930.”
