By The Grace Of God summer 2011 dates

The Rumble in Chicago

The Rumble in Chicago

As you have probably/maybe/possibly heard, By The Grace Of God is heading out this summer for a show in the US as well as a European tour. The only US date (so far, let’s see what happens!) will have the same lineup as Krazy Fest – Rob, Duncan, Jay, Thommy, and Tree. The Euro tour will have Ben Sears filling in on drums. The US date is in Chicago and there’s little to no reason for Louisville not to swarm the place. The Rumble in Chicago will have DYS, Trial, Madball, Ringworm, Most Precious Blood, BTGOG, Ceremony and more (Harms Way f yeah). The fest/show (it’s Friday and Saturday) will be at The Bottom Lounge on Lake Street (it may look familiar).
Actually, I’m looking into getting a van to take up full of Louisville people. Let’s get a couple of car loads up there if possible. Check the message board for planning info.

Coliseum news

Sunday, May 1st, 2011

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

Coliseum news

Saturday, February 19th, 2011

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.
