H20 celebrated 10 years of hardcore on Dec 30th, 2004. Five years later, the band is prepping to commemorate another landmark anniversary with a show at Gramercy Theater on 2/20/10 and a second at the Trocadero in Philly on 2/19. Tickets are on sale for the Gramercy show. Full dates are below.

The NYHC beatdown continues seven days later, when Killing Time teams up with Vision, Incendiary and Suburban Scum at Knitting Factory on 2/27. Tickets are on sale. Killing Time will be celebrating their new LP, Three Steps Back, which hits the shelves on 2/9/10. You can dig on sample tracks from the LP at their site and in a promotional video for the album below.

And finally, those in the mood for punishment on Valentine's Day (and not in an awesome, roughed up at a hardcore show way) can check out Freddy Madball the RAPPER when he opens up for the once great (Non-Phixion ruled) Ill Bill at Knitting Factory. Tickets are on sale, if you feel so inclined (I don't). Freddy Madball has a few songs streaming on his myspace, including an atrocious rap remake of "London Calling". We miss you Joe Strummer, but not this much.

H2O dates and the Killing Time video is below...

Why is it embarrassing? They certainly don't write good songs anymore, but they used to.

I'll tell you what's embarrassing. Freddy doing Reggaeton.

'Sup with the "once great" shit re: ILL BILL? Bill's been coming as hard as ever since NP broke up. Fucking typical HATER bullshit.

Hey BBG...

Why write about something just to shit on it? Make you feel better dissing 2 people who obviously you used to like???

Hey there 3:06,

Whether I like the material or not, Freddy Madball NOT doing hardcore is noteworthy. Its a similar situation to where Chris Cornell started to hang with Timbaland.

Thanks for reading!

I think the most interesting part is Killing Time. I thought the The Method sucked, but this new stuff is half way decent for a bunch of 40 something dudes. I would dare to Say "24" is as good as SOIA's stuff on Fat Wreckords.

The Method was good! People are crazy!

Call To Arms was pretty good.

H20 was great when their demo hit in 1995. Such refreshing melodic core; a breath of freshness in a genre of lame metallic garbage. I remember seeing their shows at Wetlands and they were amazing. In 2010, their albums and music are completely out of touch with who their fans are. As the mighty Choke would of said: "Hang up your boots"

BBG,

Of course you don't have to dig the material and Freddy doing a hip-hop project IS definitely noteworthy, but Chris Cornell wasn't some street cat to begin with...Freddy is. Definitely more natural whether you like it or not. Still not sure why you had to shit on it, but your prerogative. And ILL BILL is still the DON of NYC indie hip-hop as far as I'm concerned.

@7:28 PM.

Just curious: how would their albums and music be more in touch with who their fans are. what would you suggest they do? i just listeend to a few of their new songs and it sounds pretty similar to their old stuff. you mean they should change their direction or go more old school? i don't get it. it sounds basically the same to me...melodic hardcore.
