CALL OF THE VOID Live @Kopec’s – Pittsburgh, PA w/ Meth Quarry, Wrought Iron, Sistered

Denver derelicts, CALL OF THE VOID, will embark upon a massive run of live takeovers.Joined by labelmates Ringworm and Howl on select dates, the onstage audio lashings begin in Lincoln, Nebraska and will slaughter its ways through nearly 30 cities including a stop at the Delaware Death Fest next month.

Additionally, CALL OF THE VOID will bring their ruckus to Denver Black Sky. Founded by legendary Skinless throat Sherwood Webber, the three-stage event will be held on December 14th, 2013 and feature a debilitating lineup of:Dying Fetus, Ghoul, Exhumed, Skinless, Speedwolf, Power Trip,Mammoth Grinder, Reproacher, Weekend Nachos, Iron Reagan, Axeslasher, Primitive Man, Vimana,Of Feather And Bone, Native Daughters, Black Sleep Of Kali, Dead Temple and Flight Of Sleipnir.

CALL OF THE VOID will be touring in support of their Dragged Down A Dead End Path full-length released earlier this year via Relapse Records. Applauded for its “legitimate, misanthropic emotion,” by Popmatters and commended by Pitchfork for further proving that Denver is “a hotbed of serious vitriol and passion,” Dragged Down A Dead End Path meticulously weaves grind, crust and hurt feelings into 25+ minute onslaught of riotous discontent.

“…one of the best aggressive releases of the year.” – Exclaim!

“With a raw, messy sound drenched in over-amped guitars and driven by pure bile, they channel grindcore and Iron Monkey-esque sludgy unpleasantness and with each track – the longest topping out at 3:44 – they go off in a half dozen directions without ever losing their focus on destroying everything close by.” – Outburn

Dragged Down A Dead End Path is home to ten short and definitely not sweet li’l toe-tappers that straddle the line between blown-out crust fury, rough-as-a-bears-arse hostile hardcore and more than a touch of the rusted-razor-edge swampy tones of the more aggressive end of sludge – think Soilent Green without the tech inclinations perhaps.” – The Sludgelord

“…powerful, harsh crust grind at its fucking finest…” – American Aftermath

“It’s apparent that CALL OF THE VOID have written an album that will cling to fans of crust, d-beat, and hardcore like a symbiote to its host. A crushing, unforgiving album that offers little room for rest and more time for causing a ruckus.” – Sputnik Music

CALL OF THE VOID are callous, loud and, although it sounds like an antonym, sagacious, let’s hope they don’t change any time soon.” – HeavyBlogIsHeavy


Since Parquet Courts quietly released Light Up Gold on their own Dull Tools label in July, there’s been a slow but steady build up to the recent bursting-at-the-seams enthusiasm. That well-deserved fervor has led to the band signing with What’s Your Rupture?, who will be releasing the CD on January 15th (WYR? will also repress Light Up Gold on vinyl for Dull Tools). Meanwhile, Stereogum has premiered the mp3 for the titular track, “Light Up Gold II,” and Pitchfork has dubbed “Borrowed Time” a Best New Track. Forget about it!

Listen to “Light Up Gold II” here:

The band will be bringing their tacos to your town, with east coast and southern dates on the books, and west coast dates in the works.
