If you want to get your holiday weekend off to a raucous start, you should check out Extinction A.D.. The band is an offshoot from This Is Hell and features Rick Jimenez on vocals. I highly recommend it if you're into thrash/metal/head banging your life away. Check out some of the band's tunes on its Bandcamp.
Dates for Anti-Flag's east coast 20th anniversary shows can be found in the replies. Support on the various dates includes The Swellers, Make Do and Mend, Hostage Calm, Lemuria, Code Orange Kids, This Is Hell and more.
This Is Hell vocalist Travis Reilly has posted a blog right before the band embarks on a 3 week tour of the East Coast/Midwest. Check out the blog here, and be sure and pick up the band's latest album, Black Mass, out now on Rise Records.
We didn't have any staff reviews to post today, but Drew and I did post a couple of sneak peeks at some upcoming albums. Check out my preview for A Loss for Words' No Sanctuary and Drew's preview of This Is Hell's Black Mass. Are you anticipating either of these records?
You can stream the new This Is Hell track, "Black Mass," here. Their upcoming album of the same name will release on October 11t and you can pre-order it here. Album art and track listing are in the replies.
This Is Hell have entered Killingsworth Studio in California with producer Tomas Costanza to record their fourth studio album. The yet-to-be-titled record will be released in early October on Rise Records.
This Is Hell and Trustkill Records have mutually parted ways. The band has a bunch of new songs written and is in search of a new label to release their next album. Any interested parties can contact the band via firstname.lastname@example.org.
