Floor

Ohhhhh goodie goodie goodie!

FLOOR:
Anthony Vialon
Steve Brooks
Betty Monteavaro
Jeff Sousa
Henry Wilson

We'll be playing select tunes from the "Below and Beyond" boxset with all 3 original drummers (Betty, Jeff and Henry). This is gonna be a blast! 3 Birthdays that week too (Betty, Steve and Jeff)

Floor are getting back together, though unfortunately their two announced dates (below) only include the South so far. Floor recently announced their mega-mega-mega boxset Below & Beyond available for pre-order now from Robotic Empire.

You may recognize the name Steve Brooks (the guy on the far right) from another band that we love, Torche, who are prepping the domestic release of their split with Boris, Chapter Ahead Being Fake. Look for that on Hydra Head next year, and look for Torche at the Harvest of Hope Fest in Florida on March 13th (their only upcoming show for now).

Dig on a video trailer for the Torche/Boris split, as well as a few killer Floor, Torche, and Torche performing Floor videos below.

Yeah, Black Bubblegum is an idiot. His taste is terrible enough, but he makes Funkmaster Flex seem like a great speaker.
I hope he wasn't promoted in the ranks because of hit-count, cuz then I'd feel bad for clicking on his posts just to laugh at them.
Hyperbole BBG. Look it up.

Good news! I never got to see these guys and their split 7in with Spazz was one of the first "hardcore" (or whatever the hell you wanna call it) records I ever bought, back 15 years ago.

Torche was incredible the last time I saw them. Keep up the good work!

Floor were boring, though. Why pretend that they weren't? Torche is an upgrade.

I remember this band from a couple shows at the Utility House and Hardback. I also remember the smoke machine....

The whole Snow LP is pretty solid. And these guys easily sold out 3 NYC shows already.

^^^Maybe these are scalpers upset about the T5 addition?
