Fuck The Facts also have an upcoming split LP with Leng Tch'e.

Opeth has announced two new dates as part of their previously mentioned North American tour.

As more dates roll in, you'll have em, but so far all we have are Chicago on September 24th and San Fran on October 6th. Pics from their last NYC show at Terminal 5 HERE.

Cavalera Conspiracy is playing quite a few recognizable Sepultura tunes on their ongoing tour (check 'em out in an ENTIRE show available for download above, setlist is below), which is news in itself, but Max also aint neglecting his other bidness!

Full tour dates are below.

HARVEY MILK - LIFE.... THE BEST GAME IN TOWN: Stuttering, eclectic, glacially-paced sludge sung by a crew of cro-magnon men. HIGHLY recommended.
NACHTMYSTIUM - ASSASSINS: BLACK MEDDLE PT I: Black MEDDLE is the perfect description. Pink Floyd influenced black metal (saxes and all!) that brutalizes and effectively delves into dark psychedelia.
GRIDLINK - AMBER GRAY: Another short, but worthy grind project by Jon Chang. Bring a hard hat.
GORGOROTH - BLACK MASS KRAKOW 2004 (DVD): A video monument to one of the most controversial moments in an already controversial career. For fans, it's a must.
WITHERED - FOLIE CIRCULAIRE: Round two of compelling blackened grind-crust. A worthy successor to their critically acclaimed Memento Mori.
AMENRA - MASS IIII: Asphyxiating, atmospheric post-metal sludge that falls farther into the void from Mass III.
PROSTITUTE DISFIGUREMENT - DESCENDANTS OF DEPRAVITY: Sickening tech-death. I feel like I need a shower.
HUMANFLY - II: Heavy post-rock influenced sludge doom ala Pelican or early Isis. Recommended for fans of the genre.
DECAPITATED - HUMAN'S DUST (DVD): A well-produced live glimpse at a extremely talented band that who's time was cut way too short.
