Heard about these guys from Riley Breckenridge of Thrice. He's always pumping them up and he is absolutely right

I sticking by my description that it sounds like Botch covering the Jesus Lizard. "Book of Muscle" has some riffs right outta "Vietmam."

These guys rule, and they're playing with Villipend? I might have to skip school the following day to see them in Hamilton or Toronto..

There are way too many good records available for preorder right now. The comparisons and producer make this a very tempting album, though. And there's even a Michigan date, though I may be booked that day.
