Art for the Superchunk/Coliseum split
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.
