PARASITES EP 12”/CD – In stores Nov 15th:

Our new 8-song Parasites EP on Temporary Residence Limited will hit store shelves this coming Tuesday, November 15th. Hopefully there’s still a great indie record store near you that will stock it, unfortunately Louisville’s beloved ear X-tacy just closed their doors after 26 years. For those of you without record store access, you can order the 12″ and CD direct from Temporary Residence or from Shirt Killer. Shirt Killer is also offering a combo with the 12″/CD and Parasites shirt here.

We’re celebrating the release of Parasites this weekend with our appearance at Louisville’s second annual Cropped Out Festival. We play on Sunday with the legendary Scratch Acid and our literal and figurative brothers, Young Widows. This is very likely our last show for many months, after this we’re going to take an extended break from touring and begin work on our fourth album. Get tickets, set times, and all other info for Cropped Out here. Black God is also playing the festival on Saturday.

RYAN PATTERSON: APOCALYPTICISM art prints, shirts and more:

My friends at Static Age Gallery in Cincinnati, Ohio were kind enough to invite me to have my first solo art exhibition over the course of October. The show was titled “Apocalypticism” and featured a lot of new design work and paintings as well as record covers, posters and other work I’ve done over the years. I did a handful of new prints for the show and an Apocalypticism t-shirt, all of which are now available to order online from Shirt Killer. The two new 18×24″ screen printed posters I did the show (Holy Cosmos and You + Me) are among my favorite work that I’ve done, expertly printed by Static Age’s in-house print shop Southpaw Prints.

That’s it for now, thanks!

Coliseum – Parasites EP, merch and tour

Sunday, October 9th, 2011

Greetings, it’s been a while since a Coliseum update and we have some cool news to share!

PARASITES EP 12”/CD – Pre-order now, in stores Nov 15th:

We have a new 8-song EP titled Parasites coming out via Temporary Residence Limited on November 15th. Both TRL and Shirt Killer are offering pre-orders now, each with their own exclusive colored vinyl and the Shirt Killer combo includes a screen print of the cover art, signed by artist Rick Froberg (the mighty singer, guitarist and illustrator from Drive Like Jehu, Hot Snakes, Obits and Pitchfork). We’ll also have an exclusive color of vinyl for sale only on tour. (For those keeping score: TRL has 100 orange w/ black haze, SK has 100 orange / green split, the band has 100 green w/ black splatter for tour and the rest of the first pressing are on black vinyl.)

The Parasites EP is our first release of new material since House With A Curse and we’re very excited to finally release this varied collection of songs. The bulk of the EP was produced and recorded by J. Robbins at Inner Ear Studios in DC last year, along with three songs from the House With A Curse sessions recorded by Kevin Ratterman, and an additional song recorded by Trip Barriger in Louisville. J. mixed the whole thing at his Magpie Cage studio in Baltimore and then we enlisted Rick Froberg to top it all off with his incredibly wild and unique artwork. This thing looks awesome and unlike any other Coliseum record, that’s for sure!

Greetings everyone, a quick update before we head out on tour later this week:


The COLISEUM / SUPERCHUNK split 7” is available now online from Shirt Killer, we have 100 copies for sale on Shirt Killer and about 80 copies for sale on tour… This sucker sold out within hours in stores on Record Store Day and will go very quickly on Shirt Killer. I think our plan is to sell five a night on tour so they last for a couple of weeks. The point is: grab it while you can!


The BLACK GOD 7” out now on No Idea and also available from Shirt Killer, you can get it with the Superchunk split to save on shipping if you want both records. Black God is Rob Pennington, Nick Thieneman, Ben Sears and me, kind of a continuation of Black Cross, but a bit more stripped down with short songs and more pummeling Wipers meets DC obsession. We’ll have plenty of copies of the 7” on tour with Coliseum too.


Our split live LP with BURNING LOVE via Sound Study Recordings will hopefully be in our hands at the May 8th Gainesville show… Fingers crossed! The CD will be out in July via Tee Pee Records.


Self-titled LP on Bandcamp:  Our first album has been out of print for over four years, so we’ve made it available as a low-priced download from Bandcamp. Check it out here.


We are VERY excited to hit the road starting this week, these will be our first shows in the US and Canada since late last summer. It’s going to be a blast! We’ll be heading west in June/July, so keep an eye out for dates soon.


See you at the shows,

Ryan / Coliseum

Greetings everyone, it’s been a while since a Coliseum update, mainly because we’ve been busy preparing new releases, writing new music, and planning for upcoming tours. I’ll try to keep it brief – but there’s a lot of cool stuff happening that we’re very excited about!

First off – If you’re in the Louisville area, we’re playing tonight at the Magnolia Bar & Grill (aka Mag Bar) with Sweet Cobra and Prideswallower, doors are at 9pm and the show is 21 and up. Mag Bar is at 1398 South 2nd Street (2nd & Magnolia) in Louisville.

Rise Against graciously invited us to join them for a couple of weeks of dates in Europe and we gladly accepted. It’s great to be heading right back over after our incredible recent European tour in November/December and we’re looking forward to seeing everyone again and playing in front of a lot of new faces. We’ll be doing headlining shows around the Rise Against dates, so check all of the dates below.


Coliseum- August 2010 news and tour info

Saturday, August 7th, 2010

Greetings everyone, we’re flying out to the Power Of The Riff festival in Los Angeles this weekend and wanted to drop a line with our upcoming tour dates and a new video for “Lost In Groningen”.

Western North American Tour with Burning Love:
Thanks to everyone who came out for the first half of the Coliseum / Burning Love North American tour. We’ll be kicking off the second leg starting August 27th in Chicago, all the dates are below. It’s been a while since we’ve been to most of these spots and we’re really looking forward to the tour.

House With A Curse LP/CD Out Now:
Our third album, House With A Curse, was released June 22nd on Temporary Residence Limited and seems to be our most well-received record yet. Folks at SPIN, Decibel, The Onion AV Club, Alternative Press, and many others had very nice and humbling words to say about the record. We’re incredibly happy with the record and it’s great to get it out there and share it with everyone. All of the colored vinyl from the first pressing is sold out, but the nice embossed / spot gloss LP jackets are still available from Temporary Residence and Shirt Killers.

New video for “Lost In Groningen”:
Our collaborators on the “Blind In One Eye” video, Matt Whitson and Justin Gaar, are part of the Emmy-winning Alabama Public Television program We Have Signal. They filmed us at the first show of our tour in June at the fabulous Bottletree in Birmingham and have given us an exclusive multi-camera / multi-track audio clip of “Lost In Groningen” to share prior to the airing of the show in coming months. The video is on our Facebook and Vimeo sites, so swing over and check it out!

European / UK Tour:
We’ll be returning to Europe and the UK for the first time since our 2008 tour with Converge and Integrity, this time with an awesome bill featuring Vancouver’s Bison BC and Norway’s Kvelertak as support. Spanning most of November and a bit of early December, we’re covering as much ground as we can manage and are so looking forward to returning to some of our favorite locations in the world. It’s going to be a great bill and a great time. Check out the dates below.
