SUICIDE SILENCE “The Cleansing” 10th Anniversary Tour Stops At Diesel on 11/28

SUICIDE SILENCE celebrated the 10 year anniversary of their debut LP The Cleansing on September 27th. The album was highly successful debuting at No. 94 on the Billboard 200 charts and securing their legacy as the death-metal front runners.

To commemorate this momentous anniversary, the band is hitting the road making 34 stops across North America. The tour kicked off in Oakland, California and will hit Toronto, New York, and Atlanta before concluding on December 17th in Los Angeles..

SUICIDE SILENCE will perform The Cleansing each night in its entirety. Joining the band on the tour are UPON A BURNING BODYSLAUGHTER TO PREVAIL and PRISONWINDS OF PLAGUE will meet up with the tour on December 12th in Dallas, Texas and finish the remaining dates.

“10 f—king years!! The Cleansing was a record we wrote when most of us were in our early 20’s. I was in my teens still! My has the time flown by,” guitarist Mark Heylmun writes. “All we knew back then was we wanted to offend ppl and piss in the face of the mainstream (Dying Fetus pun intended). We’ve wanted to do a commemorative tour for this record for years now and the time has come. The Cleansing broke us into the metal world and the record came from a very special place, a fresh place, a place that words fail when I try to describe it, and without it…well we wouldn’t be here attempting to describe it.”

Heylmun adds, “Mitch [Lucker] had a vision for this record, he wanted to set a standard for our scene and in my eyes he created much much more. Since his passing, Eddie has paid homage to Mitch‘s vox on this record every night. It’s something very close to our hearts to have Eddie singing these songs with us. Mitch and Eddie inspired each other, exchanged vocal tips, and both have the passion for the most brutal sounds you can humanly make and it’s going to be an amazing show for us and for you. Emotions will be high, maybe we will be high too, you don’t want to miss this. Let’s f—king party! Come celebrate with us cuz this will only happen once!”

DADA COMING ON 

CAPTURED TRACKS JUNE 16
“Brookyn’s best new punks show their softer side” – FLOOD
NORTH AMERICA KICKS OFF THIS MONTH
B Boys hit us with their new single “Walking”, a song the band explains is “about trying to be tender and acknowledging that masculinity is a prison written after a whirlwind of emotions of being on tour.”  The single debuted over at FLOOD who’ve described it “bounces out like a version of ‘Sweet Jane’ reimagined for a punk-rock prom, but it quickly shifts into itself, the internal tension building more quickly than the group allows it to escape.”
B Boys full-length debut Dada is out June 16 on Captured Tracks. This month they set out on a full North American tour with Merchandise. Highlights include NYC, LA, Seattle, SF, Portland and more. Check below for a full list of dates.

– B BOYS MEET THE PRESS  –
 
A:  It all began with a dream, really. The album.
 
Q:  Oh, there’s an album?
A:  13 songs, recorded with microphones and such. A variety of instruments.
 
Q:  I’d call that an album.
A:  We call it Dada.
 
Q:  Like the art movement?
A:  Yeah sure, but more like the combination of syllables.
 
Q:  So, like a linguistic connection?
A:  Language, self-awareness, introspection, a fresh pair of chinos. It’s all connected; not everything has to make sense.
 
Q:  Fair enough, but it all seems to be stemming from somewhere. Where is this where?
A:  You won’t find it on some cartographer’s desk. It comes from within. Equal parts collective unconscious and personal experience.
 
Q:  That’s a lot deeper than you look.
A:  We got a different mind.
 
Q:  If 50 years from now the kids are still grooving to this Dada thing – success?
A:  50 years? Kids? We’d be happy if anyone was grooving to this 50 days from now.
 
Q:  What would you call that? Self-deprecation? An odd sense of humor?
A:  All we know is all we know, but 50 days of grooving sounds pretty good from where we sleep, especially on a pair of quality speakers.
 
Q:  Now you’re talking. OK, so I’m stuck on a deserted island with this Dada LP. What else should I bring?
A:  A tin of mints and some unconventional serenity.
 
Q:  Do you have anything specific you’d like to express to get the fans going?
 
At this point in the conversation, the B Boys looked at one another, stood up, and walked away without saying a word. Before reaching the door, they flipped a switch on the wall and every single fan in the place turned on. They looked back over their shoulder and smiled.
 
One thing’s for certain: I wish I could be on a deserted island with them right now with a salty breeze flowing through my hair.

DEVILDRIVER released their long-awaited seventh studio album, Trust No One, in May 2016 via Napalm Records. The album is available for purchase now digitally via iTunes and Amazon, or in other formats via the Napalm Records Web Store and DevilDriver.com. This ballsy, brash and brutal burnt offering ignites the group’s fiercest ten salvos to date. Straight out of the gate, key tastemakers embraced the record with KERRANG! calling it, “A snorting, snarling heavy metal beast,” and Metal Hammer going as far as to say, Trust No One is a monstrous comeback that cackles with renewed verve, ideas and energy that’s the equal of the band’s finest achievements.”   
Trust No One entered the Billboard Top 200 chart at #43. The album followed 2013’s Winter Kills, which bowed at #32. To date, DEVILDRIVER has developed one of the most rabid fan bases in heavy metal, which has packed festivals and venues everywhere to witness their gospel of intensity.

The Sheepdogs come to Pittsburgh @Cattivo 9/23

image002On September 23, bluesy retro-rock band The Sheepdogs will bring their raucous live show to Pittsburgh, PA at Cattivo. The band has been on the road throughout the last year across North America and Europe – including many SOLD OUT shows to crowds of over 3K in Canada.

Formed in Saskatoon, The Sheepdogs have continued to follow in the footsteps of Canadian rock legends including Neil Young, The Band and The Guess Who with a bold take on classic guitar rock and polished retro sound. The Sheepdogs came into the national spotlight in 2011 as the first unsigned band to appear on the cover of Rolling Stone, and since then have won four JUNO awards and been nominated for seven over their impressive career.

Praise for Future Nostalgia:

 

“The album is fully in the thrall of that 70s groove. Gnarly double guitar noodling (“Downtown”) and soft focus drive-time goodness (“Jim Gordon”). “Take a Trip” will make you want to spark up and dance around and make out.” – Noisey

 

“The Sheepdogs have a bold take on classic guitar rock” – Yahoo! Music

 

“The Sheepdogs twist classic psychedelic rock with hints of folk and turn it into music that is pure ear candy” –Baeble Music

 

“[Future Nostalgia is] steeped in the classic and psychedelic rock of the 70′s but also feels like a blast of fresh sounds in a musical landscape in desperate need of (good) bands capable of writing punchy rock and roll tunes.” – Glide

 

“[‘Take A Trip’] has all of the hallmarks associated with monster ’70s rock that ruled the music world” – Pure Volume
