The Black And Blue Bowl (aka Superbowl of Hardcore) is back at Studio B in 2009, with a lineup heavy on reunited and classic hardcore bands and headlined by the recently reunited Earth Crisis who, for my money, peaked with the line "A FIRESTORM TO PURIFYYYYYYYYYYYY!". Beware, similar to the previous statement, the following announcement CONTAINS LOTS OF CAPITAL LETTERING:
ALL AGES BNB BOWL AKA SUPER BOWL OF HARDCORE 09 LINE-UP!!
MAY 30TH SUPERBOWL / BNB BOWL OF HARDCORE 2009 LINE-UP @ STUDIO B
THIS WILL BE THE ULTIMATE MIX OF HARDCOREI do have a soft spot for that Firestorm EP though... Destroy The Machines ain't bad either.

Earth Crisis have a new album on the way, To The Death due on Century Media on May 5th. The band also recently announced a bunch of tour dates (below) with Walls of Jericho, Reign Supreme, Blood Stands Still and Unholy including 5/1 in New Haven with Vision Of Disorder and Hatebreed. Earth Crisis are also on board for Bamboozle East in E. Rutherford NJ with No Doubt and Fall Out Boy. Tempting. Full Earth Crisis dates are below.
Sub-Zero announced they will call it quits, and The Black & Blue Bowl marks their LAST show, with the "original lineup doing an old school set".
