News Bits & Pieces

CORY BRANAN ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM
Cory Branan will release ‘ADIOS‘ on Friday 7th April. The fifth full-length is his death record, an album self-dubbed as a “loser’s survival kit“, which touches on departures, nostalgia, and emotional survival.

The 14-song, self-produced album was recorded in Oxford, MS at Tweed Studios with Robbie Crowell (formerly of Deer Tick) and James Haggerty, and includes guest spots from Amanda Shires, Dave Hause, and Laura Jane Grace.

Listen to new song ‘Imogene‘ below. Pre-orders are available on iTunes [Here] and on CD / Vinyl [Here].

WE SET SAIL DEBUT MELBOURNE SHOWS THIS WEEKEND
Brisbane’s We Set Sail are in Melbourne this weekend playing their first shows in the city.

Tonight, you can catch them at Wrangler Studios on an all ages show with The Football Club, Error Margins and Rat Catcher. A tenner gets you in.

On Saturday night they play The Reverence Hotel with Have/Hold and Crusch.

We Set Sail released their second full-length in September last year. Give it a listen below.

SLEATER-KINNEY – WHAT’S MINE IS YOURS’ (LIVE)
Sleater-Kinney reveal their second single off the group’s first ever live album, ‘Live In Paris‘ out January 27th on Sub Pop via Inertia Music.

You can hear the live version of ‘The Woods‘ standout ‘What’s Mine Is Yours‘ now. Recorded at the historic La Cigale theatre in the heart of Paris, the album showcases the energy and explosiveness that has long been a trademark three of rock’n’roll’s foremost riot grrrls.

Listen below. Pre-orders for ‘Live In Paris‘ are available on iTunes [Here].

SORORITY NOISE ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM
Sorority Noise have announced ‘You’re Not As _____ As You Think‘, their third full length record and follow up to 2015’s ‘Joy, Departed‘.

You’re Not As _____ As You Think‘ is set to be released on March 17th via Triple Crown Records / Cooking Vinyl Australia.

Singer/guitarist Cam Boucher explains the story behind the first single ‘No Halo‘;

This song is about having a friend pass away and still keeping them fondly in your mind to the point where you show up to their house forgetting that they’re no longer there. It’s about struggling to keep up with the people you love when you’re away and how to be/how it feels to not be there for them when they need you most.

Pre-order ‘You’re Not As _____ As You Think‘ on iTunes [Here] and on Vinyl [Here]. Listen to the first single below.

SIX FEET UNDER SHARE NEW LYRIC VIDEO
On February 24th, Six Feet Under returns with their 12th studio album, ‘Torment‘.

Torment‘ was brought to life by Chris Barnes with bassist/guitarist Jeff Hughell shouldering the load of writing the music, along with heralded drummer Marco Pitruzzella.

Barnes comments; “I’ve been lucky to have a lot of standout albums in my career. That’s only because I’ve had a great many talented writing partners and musicians to collaborate with. Our new album, ‘Torment’, to me, is one of those albums. Jeff Hughell has provided the flammable material for me to write some explosive lyrics and vocal parts to. I know people always say, ‘this is my best album ever’, and I won’t say that, because everyone has their own favorites, but I do enjoy creating new music, and I feel as though with this one we expressed concisely and to the fullest the duality of our music.

Watch the lyric video for ‘Sacrificial Kill‘ below. You can pre-order the album on iTunes [Here], or physically [Here].

PRIMORDIAL AUSTRALIAN SHOWS ANNOUNCED
Irish pagan black metallers, Primordial will visit Australia for the first time ever this July for two exclusive shows

With roots stretching back nearly 30 years, Primordial were the first black metal band to come from Ireland.

Well it’s taken over two decades but we are proud to announce some shows in Australia. Even if we can confirm kinship with so many people down the years, toured with so many Australian bands, shared drinks and good times, it’s always been in Europe, seperated by geography and economics. So here we are… and we have some old comrades in Vomitor and Nocturnal Graves as support. Bring it on!

PRIMORDIAL
With guests VOMITOR and NOCTURNAL GRAVES
JULY
7th – Max Watt’s, Melbourne [18+]
8th – Bald Faced Stag, Sydney [18+]
—> Tickets available now.
