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”!

Young Widows have wrapped up their latest tour with Russian Circles and are back home for a while. They’re going to be taking somewhat of a break and focusing on writing their next record. They’ve posted exactly what I just told you as well as some great photos from the tour on the Young Widows MySpace blog. Check it out when you have a minute or three. Photos (I’m assuming, sorry if I’m wrong) mostly by Nick Thieneman.

Coliseum/Auxilary October 09 News

Friday, October 9th, 2009

From Ryan Patterson:

Greetings all. It’s been a while since the last Coliseum update…

First, we’re very happy to welcome Coliseum’s new drummer Carter Wilson to the fold. Carter hails from Birmingham and we tracked him down on the suggestion of Young Widows, who we thank very much for the tip. He joined the band in August and has seamlessly learned our old songs while diving headlong into new material. Many movies, burritos and good times have been shared in the last few months and we look forward to many more down the road. We’ll be hitting the road this month for the first time since June, debuting some new songs and playing our first batch of shows with Carter.
