“Iron Reagan play a revved-up take on the ‘80s crossover sound, the one where speed metal and hardcore merged into one giddy and pummeling skateboard soundtrack.” – Stereogum
Richmond crossover punks Iron Reagan have shared a full album stream of Crossover Ministry through Vice’s music portal Noisey. Hear the vicious sermon exclusively via Noisey at this location, who say that “Crossover Ministry parties hard and riffs harder, bringing the mosh with a mix of Tony Foresta’s trademark goofball humor and on-point jibes about the sorry state of the planet.”

Watch the previously released. official music video for “Bleed the Fifth” at this location. Follow the strung-out antics of two rogue cops, played by the stars of Comedy Central’s new show Delco Proper (, who stumble into the wrong crowd at the wrong time.

Recorded by guitarist Phil “Landphil” Hall and mixed by Kurt Ballou, Crossover Ministry features 30 minutes of relentlessly catchy riffs and irresistibly mosh-ready breakdowns paired with lyrics that run the gamut from satyrical to serious.  In the wake of one of the most controversial presidential elections in American history, Crossover Ministry couldn’t have come at a better time.

DJ wunderkind Chrome Sparks playing Pittsburgh

Chrome Sparks is the project Jeremy Malvin, a musician and producer living in Brooklyn by way of Pittsburgh and Ann Arbor. He kicked off Chrome Sparks in mid-2012 with the track ‘Marijuana’, a thumping, fluttering piece of synth-centered bass music that unexpectedly set the internet alight. Inspired by a background in classical percussion and an obsession with synthesizers, Malvin creates dazed, melodic beat-centric tunes that loosely hang between down-tempo head nodders and up-tempo club bangers. His last EP Parallelism was made using sounds from three analog synthesizers, vocal samples from friends, and a tambourine.

As previously announced, the artist known as Chrome Sparks will be touring the US this fall.  The tour encompasses headlining shows (including one at Echoplexin Los Angeles on September 27 and at NYC‘s Le Poisson Rouge on October 15) as well as festival appearances (III Points Festival) and select dates as the support for Flume ( Red Rocks Amphitheatre on August 18 and Forest Hills Stadium in New York on August 27).   For his headlining dates Chrome Sparkswill be touring with special guest Roland Tings. The full run of dates and ticket links, including festival appearances and special one-off shows, is below.
The Brooklyn-based artist, born Jeremy Malvin, grew up in Pittsburgh and spent formative time in Ann Arbor before settling east and converting a legion of supporters to his deftly hybridized sound, including PitchforkDancing AstronautIndie Shuffle, and FADER.  He can also count  Annie Mac and Triple J as supporters on radio and fellow music-making champions in BonoboLaurent Garnier and Anna Lunoe. His classical training in percussion lends a strong beat-centricity to his productions, and his background playing in bands manifests itself in carefully considered live performances. Asked to describe Chrome Sparks shows, he says:
“I need instruments; I need oscillators; I need someone flailing around, sticks in hand, trying to destroy a few drums. With the help of my percussive friend, Bill DeLelles, and pre programmed MIDI patterns that are sent to a variety of analog synths and samplers, I’m able to play some of the instruments while the others play themselves. Each instrument’s audio is run back through my laptop, allowing me to loop different parts and build on songs organically. I believe this process creates an effect that’s palpable for the audience, a balance that is simultaneously delicate and extremely powerful.”
