COLISEUM: NEW BASS PLAYER, AUGUST TOUR, FREE 7”

Coliseum Young Widows TourCOLISEUM: NEW BASS PLAYER, AUGUST TOUR, FREE 7”! We’d like to welcome our longtime friend Kayhan Vaziri into the ranks of Coliseum as our new bass player. Kayhan has already played two local shows with us and seamlessly joined in the writing process for our next album. We couldn’t be more excited to have him on board as a bandmate and brother.

2012 has been the first year in our eight year history that we’ve spent off the road and not on tour, but we’re going to venture out for a short jaunt with Young Widows in August, our first tour together since 2009. The Toronto show on August 3rd is a free show and everyone who attends receives a free 7” featuring new and unreleased songs from Coliseum, Young Widows and Toronto’s TV Freaks! We’ll have more info on how to RSVP for that soon.

In the meantime, we’ll continue to work diligently at writing our fourth (and certainly best) album. We’re recording later this year and it will be out sometime in early 2013 on Temporary Residence. More on that as the time approaches… For now, we’re very excited to have Kayhan in the band and stoked for the upcoming shows and 7”!

Mike Pascal leaves Coliseum

Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

It is with a heavy heart that I announce that Mike Pascal will no longer be a member of Coliseum. For over seven years, Mike has been our bass player and like a younger brother to me. He joined the band in Fall 2004 for our first extended tour and made his recorded debut in Coliseum on the Goddamage EP a few months later, playing every show since then and on every following release. We’ve traveled the world together and had more great times than I can count. While this is difficult at the moment, Mike’s departure from the band is the right thing for him and I know we will all be better for it.

There are certainly times when I’ve considered throwing in the towel and putting an end to Coliseum, but ultimately I remain as inspired and passionate about the band as ever. There are always peaks and valleys and there have been times when I felt like we were fighting a losing battle, but the good has always outweighed the bad. Coliseum played its first show just over eight years ago and I am humbled by all we’ve accomplished, all the people we’ve met, all the places we’ve played, all the bands we’ve toured with and all of the great guys who have been members of the band. I feel incredibly lucky to continue to have Carter as a bandmate and Temporary Residence as our label. We are very excited about the new material we’ve been writing and look forward to recording the fourth Coliseum album this Fall.

We will play our show with Tragedy in Louisville on May 18th with a friend filling in on bass and will take our time finding a new permanent member. Thanks for your continued support, it means the world to us.

Coliseum – kinda almost unplugged

Thursday, November 24th, 2011

I can’t lie, I watched Mike almost the entire video. It’s not really unplugged, but you’re not likely to ever hear Coliseum so… quiet again.

Louisville rock outfit Coliseum incorporates everything from explosive metal to incisive D.C. punk in its power-chord, loud-quiet tunes. TOC had the band in the office for one of our least unplugged Live at TOC sessions. Here’s “Waiting.”….
