Xerxes – February song+video

Friday, January 20th, 2012

Xerxes has released their new song and video entitled February this week via the NoiseCreep site. NoiseCreep got it a little wrong and thought it was Calvin in the video I guess (based on the blog post title, maybe I’m reading it wrong though), but everything else is on point. Max filmed and edited the footage and it looks fantastic. The song should be coming out on Xerxes’ upcoming full length release on No Sleep Records entitled ‘Our Home Is A Deathbed’. The new record is scheduled to be released on March 31st. Some more info on the upcoming release as well as pre-order/merch info is available on the No Sleep blog.

Xerxes announce Full 2012 US Tour Dates w/ Code Orange Kids

Xerxes Debut Full Length Album Produced by Kevin Ratterman Out Winter 2011/2012 on No Sleep Records!

Following news of the recording of their upcoming debut full-length album with Kevin Ratterman (Coliseum, My Morning Jacket), set for a Winter 2011/2012 release on No Sleep Records, ferocious Louisville-based hardcore band Xerxes are announcing upcoming US tour dates, and first ever full US tour, taking place in early 2012 with main support from friends Code Orange Kids (touring in support of their new “Cycles” 7″ in Mayfly Records).

Although not currently releasing venue information, the band has confirmed the complete itinerary for the 41-date trek, which includes every major region of the country, stretching along both coast lines, and stopping in almost every major city in the continental United States along the way.

Featuring artwork by Adam Vass of La Dispute, the new Xerxes album is rumored to feature 12 new songs by the band (11 tracks + a B side) and will be supported by a series of non-stop US and worldwide tour dates, all of which to be announced shortly.

Xerxes took shape in early 2009 in Louisville, KY with a sound that channels the energy and passion of mid-90’s originators You and I and Saetia, while adding the more upbeat and brutal thrash mentality of contemporaries such as Trash Talk and Ampere, making for a sound that runs the gamut of blast-beat aggression and emotional rumination.
