Art for the Superchunk/Coliseum split
Superchunk/Coliseum split art

Now that Coliseum has given their epic Goddamage EP a revamp (a must, if you don't have it already), the band is currently tearing up the streets of the EU with Rise Against. After returning from that trek, Ryan Patterson & the boys will hit the US highways/byways for a string of US dates that will include NYC twice: May 14th at Public Assembly with Gods & Queens & May 15th at Union Pool with The Austerity Program. Both shows are presented by BrooklynVegan/1000Knives.

Coliseum are waving their (black) flag in support of Record Store Day, and will team up with Superchunk to release a split 7" of Misfits covers. Limited to 2000 copies in three colorways (yellow, magenta, black), Superchunk will take on "Horror Business" while Coliseum tears down "Bullet". The 7" is not the first time that Coliseum has paid tribute to Danzig, as Coliseum teamed up with Doomriders in 2005 to record the Not of This World split of Danzig covers for Level Plane.

Coliseum is also teaming up with Burning Love (ex-Cursed, hitting the road with Converge in May) for another split, this time a live record recorded at the Atlantic in Gainesville, Florida in 2010. Sound Study Recordings will release the limited LP of 1000 copies, with a CD version due via Tee Pee with bonus tracks (and also limited to 1000). You can see the cover art for that, below.

This is a benefit 7", with all proceeds going to help Danzig fix up his front yard.

Superchunk covering "Horror Business" totally makes sense. I can already hear it in my head and it sounds great.

they played it with Todd Barry on drums at the mhow show earlier this year

I made some super chunks after eating too much hummus. All that fiber really made for some nice chunk, yessir.

This split makes bizarre sense.

"superchunk is on my list of bands i refuse to listen to or go see"

the superchunk/misfits connection makes sense because like someone said above, they covered "horror business" with todd barry on drums back in September and it was amazing

Yo La Tengo should have been on that split.

The only thing from KY that matters is Brody's Militia. Fuck everything else.

The TV show Justified is the only thing from / even about KY that matters.
