Rattletooth signs to Chicago’s Organized Crime Records

October 29th, 2008

“We have officially signed to Organized Crime Records. This has been in the works for what seems like forever and we’re beyond excited to make it official and announce the news. Our debut 7” record entitled “Curses” will be released in January 2009. It was recorded with Chris Owens at Headbanging Kill Your Mama Music in Louisville, KY in August 2008.
With the start of our weekends we’re planning, in November we will be putting up a new song just in time for our trip to Tennessee and Alabama. We have some more weekends planned in December and January that will see us visiting the Mid-west.
For now, you can enjoy our demo we recorded almost a year ago. There’s a link to download it free on our myspace http://www.myspace.com/rattletooth

Hello everyone, COLISEUM are about to head out for a pretty wild tour, crossing the US with Torche and Clouds, then heading to Japan for a week with Torche, then immediately returning for an Eastern US tour with Baroness and Minsk. We’d love to see your familiar faces at these shows!
This will wrap up 2008 for us, it’s been pretty insane since No Salvation came out last year… We will have toured four different continents, countless cities and countries, and been tour mates with some of our favorite bands, greatest old friends, and incredible new friends.

Yeah, a free show at Ear X-Tacy and then a show at Glassworks all in the same night.

Venus Trap - The Key

Frontier(s) have just posted their first recordings on (ugh) Myspace – http://www.myspace.com/frontiersband Check them out.
Mountain Asleep just had their last show with Jeremy. And you unfortunately probably missed it. I’m sure Jeremy will be missed as well. I’d tell you who’s going to be playing in his place, but I forgot to ask.
You also missed me playing in my underwear Saturday night (Brother Doubt/Morning Augment/Nixon) and sexually harassing the audience (mostly Tony Ash… sorry man). For all of those people saying that they really, really like Nixon, shame on you for not showing up (again). That stuff is still thumbs up, and you are thumbs down.
Thumbs up to Skull Alley for being voted the #2 screenprinter in the LEO Reader’s Choice Awards. And thumbs also to Lucky Pineapple who were #2 for Best Band or something along those lines.
This site also placed #3 for Best Local Music Blog, and tied (I guess) #3 for Best Local Website. No idea how the hell that happened, do we all get consolation prizes from BBC for this?
Check out YouTube for Bodyhammer/Seaside Panel/Tyrone reunion vids. William (congrats good sir) not only got hitched, played in all of this, but got someone to video tape at least bits from it.
Check the Parking Lot forum for info about the slew of upcoming Halloween coverband shows. As with each previous year, it’ll be like a tsunami crashing down on your head and you won’t know where to go. or something along those non-poetic lines.
