After putting out some material on Equal Vision Records, Ghost Thrower (ex-Therefore I Am) are going the independent route for their self-titled album. The effort is due out digitally on October 15th, but you can stream a new track, "The King of Louisiana," in the replies. The band have shifted their sound a bit from their earlier material, but I think fans of Tigers Jaw and Balance and Composure will like it.
Therefore I Am will reunite for a show on December 21st at The Sinclair in Cambridge, MA with Fairweather, Actor | Observer and Foreign Tongues. The show is already more than half sold out, so grab your tickets.
Watch the premiere of Lions Lions' music video for "Milestones" in the replies. It was filmed at the Warped Tour stop in the band's home state of Massachusetts. Needless to say, things get rowdy. Featuring former Vanna and Therefore I Am member Brandon Davis, Lions Lions is the latest in a long line of promising New England post-hardcore groups. Their new album, To Carve Our Names, is out now via Hollywood Waste Records.
