A Storm Of Light
A Storm Of Light

It's been less than 18 months since their first one, and A Storm of Light (mems. Neurosis, ex-Tombs) are already venturing toward album two with Forgive Us Our Trespasses, out Tuesday (9/22) via Neurot Recordings. The album features contributions from Jarboe, Lydia Lunch and many others. The band is currently streaming "Midnight" at their MySpace but hasn't let any other tracks slip out... until now! BrooklynVegan is proud to present the US premiere of the video for "Tempest", available exclusively below!

So far A Storm of Light has only one US date on their calendar, a FREE album release show at Ace of Clubs on 10/12 joined by Biclops and Naked Heroes! After that, Josh & the boys hop on a plane to tear a hole in the space-time continuum at the Damnation Festival before embarking on a European tour with the mighty Minsk.

In related news, Graham's critically acclaimed project Battle of Mice has, not surprisingly, called it quits. The band, which included Julie Christmas of Made Out of Babies as well as members of Dub Trio released the statement is below:

Battle of Mice
Battle of Mice

REST
Battle of Mice is dead.

After two critically acclaimed releases, Battle of Mice has been officially and amicably dissolved. Never before has the story of a violent, interpersonal flameout been so aurally documented. It was intense while it lasted, but we should all be thankful that the band has ended; not with a bang, but with a whimper.

What the future holds:

The full length vinyl may still make an appearance sometime next year. We are waiting for the final word on that one.

Julie Christmas is currently working on a solo record, be on the lookout. The record features almost an entirely different lineup on each song, featuring many special guests.

Josh Graham's new band, A Storm of Light, has a new release coming out September 2009. The record is called Forgive Us Our Trespasses, and features Jarboe, Nerissa Campbell, Lydia Lunch, and more.

Joel Hamilton and Tony Maimone are both working on the next Book of Knots record.
Both are recording madmen as well. Joel recorded and plays on A Storm of Light's record, and just finished recording the new Black Keys album.

Joe Tomino has been on tour with his band Dub Trio, as well as playing with many others including Mike Patton.

That is about it.

Be Well. Sleep and Dream.
Battle of Mice 2005 - 2009"

We recently discussed the current status of Made Out of Babies.

Josh Graham sat down for an interview with us early last year. We interviewed Scott Kelly of a band Josh does visuals for, Neurosis, earlier this year. Scott Kelly's other band Shrinebuilder plays NYC on 11/15.

I like the video but it is empathizing that Battle Of Mice is dead. As a tune follower I will visit your blog rapidly.

The cat was onto them, so they called it quits.

Yeah. That was unfunny.

Thanks for the comment Steve. I actually wrote in a comment here a few weeks ago asking what was happening with this blog after the announcement that O'Reilly was dropping the Digital Media division. It's really refreshing to get an honest comment on what's happening. I really hope the blog picks up again.

Never heard of them at all. Who are they and what genre do they play? Rock? Acoustic? Grunge? Or something else?

Posted by Keyword Tool | August 29, 2011 12:12 AM

The battle of mice call it quits after they have there own share of cheese.
To be honest I don't have the chance to hear the band.

The abounding breadth vinyl may still accomplish an actualization ancient next year. We are cat-and-mouse for the final chat on that one.
