New releases (april/march 09)

April 1st, 2009

A lot of these are little bit outside LHxC’s normal scope or focus for one reason or another, but so what. Go whine somewhere else. Like… the message boards.

Millions (Chicago) has a new record dropping TODAY Yesterday on 7th Rule Records. Entitled “Gather/Scatter”, it’s 8 tracks of what you want to hear if you want to hear loud, abrasive rock. Wow, how much more fucking vague can I be? This is why I don’t write reviews very often. Anyway……  Vocals are belted out by Louisvillian Corey Lyons (SHP, Bodyhammer) which is why I’m posting it here (and because he is all over the forums). Great bass tones on this record, btw. Catch these guys on Monday, Apr. 6th as they swing through on their way back from tour. They’ll probably be here later in the year again after their Euro tour. Read the rest of this entry »

Young Widows – Old Skin video

March 31st, 2009

As usual, since I don’t have a myspace, I don’t know what the fuck is going on… so when Young Widows posted their new video for Old Skin, I didn’t know. I’ve been waiting to post this thing up here.

Rattletooth – New vocalist

March 23rd, 2009

For anyone that wasn’t at the show last Monday, Rattletooth has parted ways with Brendan and signed on Tyler Short (Python). He debuted at the Keswick show on a new song in the midst of a water and beer slip-n-slide. It didn’t take long for blood to get flowing as both singers hit the floor hard at several points and microphone mesh was cutting face flesh.
Duncan owes half the crowd $10 a piece for all of the groin punches that Brendan received.

Frontier(s) Records!

March 14th, 2009

According to Matt Weider, Frontier(s) has quite a bit going on here in 2009. This summer will see a debut 7″ on No Sleep Records. There will also be “a couple of” releases coming out thanks to the Area Rock Recording Co.
So keep your eyes open and pick this stuff up when it comes out. More info will surely be posted up when it becomes available.

Coliseum/Auxiliary News

March 9th, 2009

from Deathwish. The first 1000 copies of the 7″ will have awesome limited edition packaging – an outer vellum cover featuring artwork by our pal John Baizley of Baroness with a metallic spot color that lays over a full color printed sleeve. The two layers work together to create the entire image on the front and back. It’s then all inserted in a polysleeve with a fold-over flap and sealed with a silver foil sticker. There are two different colors of vinyl for this edition as well.
