The Louisville, Kentucky-based trio Coliseum has always done things according to its gut instinct, not by others' expectations. "Blind In One Eye," the first track written for the band's third and latest album, House With a Curse (Temporary Residence 6-22-10), cements a new beginning for the band, one that takes cues from the sounds and ethos of the band's early-era Dischord and Touch and Go musical roots, and pushes the boundaries of conventional rock and punk.

Since 2003, Coliseum's powerful, classic hardcore and punk inspired sounds, exhaustive tour schedules, and unabashed independent streak has earned it a devoted fan base, critical acclaim, and the respect of its peers. Coliseum's second full-length, 2007's No Salvation (Relapse Records), captured the band at the height of this era with an outpouring of urgent riffs, breakneck speeds, and anthems that were as heavy as they were catchy.

Having mastered the art of the straight-forward punk record, it's no surprise that a change was in order. Named after a note written in the 1925 movie version of Phantom of the Opera, House With A Curse shows that for Coliseum, the battle still rages on, but the tactics have changed; the blitzkrieg has given way to a style that is more deliberate and self-assured. Produced by the band and mixed by J. Robbins (Jawbox), House finds the band exploring a multitude of tempos, song structures and instrumentation, with appearances from friends including Will Oldham (Palace, Bonnie "Prince" Billy), Jason Noble (Shipping News, Rachels, Rodan), Peter Searcy of Squirrel Bait and more.

Coliseum's album House With A Curse will be released on June 22, 2010 via Temporary Residence LTD.
