There’s a new band out there to keep up with – The Trigger Men. And they’ve posted up a new demo on Bandcamp. Trigger Men consists of a chunk of Written Off (Meg Morgan, Chris Miles, and Scott Holston) along with Keith Lucious and Brandon Burdine from Indianapolis. Keith says “Chris and I live together and were all on the same page musically so it’s been a fun way to kill time”. With Brandon living up in Indy, some of the details will probably take a bit to nail down, but they’re talking about doing some weekends when possible and will definitely be playing shows here, Indy, and anywhere in between.
I give it a three thumbs up and a destroyed L5/S1 disc.
Coliseum has recently uploaded a little teaser video for their upcoming full length release on Temporary Residence entitled Sister Faith. Not only that, but they’re gearing up for some new (as of yet unannounced) touring now that they’ve just signed a deal with Panache Booking. For future booking, hit up John Bohannon.
Written Off has a new 7″ about to come out on Six Feet Under Records. It’s ready for pre-order on the Six Feet Under Site. From Six Feet Under:
“In the summer of 2009, inspired by the growing scene in Louisville, Written Off began writing music in vein of hardcore most recognized in Boston and other areas of the North East. After self-releasing Louisville Straight Edge demo cassette tape, a self-titled 7″ on Iron Mind Crew Records, and a split with Atlanta’s Out Crowd on Iron Mind Crew/Like Glue Records, Written Off started writing new material that would define their sound and prove to be their best material thus far. In 6 fast paced, straight to the point tracks, Written Off proves with their second self-titled record the potential of Midwest Hardcore in 2013. This is that record.”
Written Off also has a special release of their split 7″ with Outcrowd available. The release is a fundraiser for Nora Jane Worley, a 6-month old with a rare heart defect. Records and more info are available up at the Iron Mind Crew webstore. The limited release has a cover featuring Nora and limited colors.
Lee Van Cleef called it quits earlier this year in almost typical Louisville fashion. That is to say that they had to part ways right after recording a new record instead of the way everyone seems to record/release/break up almost right afterwards. Justin headed off for D.C. adventure, babies were had, etc. Regardless, that record, helmed by Trip at Treehouse Audio, is seeing the light of internet-day now on Bandcamp and Soundcloud. Entitled Songs About Shitting, please give it a shot even if you tend to be fecal-phobic.
