Tombs at Cake Shop (more by Samantha Marble)

As previously discussed, Tombs will do battle with Rosetta, Irepress, and Junius at the Studio @ Webster Hall today (Saturday, 12/12, tix here), but that isn't the only show scheduled for the Brooklyn killers/year-end list toppers.

BrooklynVegan is proud to present Tombs with Rosetta, City of Ships, and Battlefields at Union Pool on January 22nd in association with our friends at 1000 Knives. Flyer for that show is below.

In other Rosetta news, the band recently dropped a three way split with Year of No Light and East Of The Wall on Translation Loss. Pick that up here. The East of The Wall lineup on the split differs slightly from the lineup today:

EAST OF THE WALL is excited to announce its new lineup. Joining the band are guitarist Chris Alfano and drummer Seth Rheam. Both played in the band Biclops with EAST OF THE WALL bassist Brett Bamberger and guitarist Kevin Conway. Due to the merging of the two bands' lineups, all music created by the aforementioned collective, along with guitarist Matt Lupo, will be released under the name EAST OF THE WALL. This will include the release of the groups next record, Ressentiment, due out next summer through Translation Loss Records.

With this lineup change, EAST OF THE WALL has parted ways with original drummer Mike Somers. The band would like to thank Mike for his outstanding musicianship and hard work since the inception of the band.
More on the band merger here.

January is turning out to be a nutso month, with the previously announced Magrudergrind/Defeatist show at Cake Shop and HopeCon/Blacklisted at Cake Shop (TICKETS), not to mention the previously discussed Disembodied show at Santos.

Who? Rusty of Battlefields? Most humble dude ever. That is utter nonsense

hopefully anon had better interactions with him. myself, and others i've spoken with have all shared unpleasantness with him. let them stay at my house, all of the band dudes were super cool 'cept him. i hope myself and the aforementioned others were the only ones that experienced this.

just curious what made Rusty from Battlefields get on your bad side.

rarely do i ever respond to such things, but in my defense... sometimes i have anxiety to the point it hinders my social experiences, making me a very quite person. i choose to be very peaceful and keep to myself. i apologize if i came off a particular way towards you, but i do not find it necessary to continuously post on these news sites the same complaint about me.

somethings to consider towards other touring musicians that might make them seem like a jerk are; really long tiring drives, sleeping in unpleasant places (like a cramped van at a rest area, or some punk kids house that has dog poop all over the floor), extremely low payouts that more or less leave your band living paycheck to paycheck, maybe something going on in their personal lives with family, relationships etc. or better yet, one of the last long tours battlefields went on, we had our city under water with one of the regions worst floods in over 100 years making worlds news. our guitarist lost his house, mine was in jeopardy. our friends, girlfriends and families spent weeks sandbagging in blizzard conditions while we were out having "fun" on tour.

here is a little bit of what we were dealing with while on tour...

i can almost guarantee one of those situations were on my mind that day...

Sounds like this was a great time to get some great sounds and I missed it. Jeez...

Oh too bad I missed the ones at Cake Shop!

I wish i could have seen the show. I can not believe how many dates in different towns or states they are doing in a row. Seems like one big show and nothing but travel in between for the whole month.
