Portland duo Wizard Rifle switch gears constantly on their new LP Speak Loud Say Nothing, an amalgamation of sludge, noise-rock, punk rock, and areas in between. The duo, who are self-described as a "scrap-metal monster... drawing from the sounds of Lightning Bolt, Karp, Sonic Youth, Black Sabbath and High on Fire", are currently blessing stages across the country, knee-deep in a set of North American tour dates that include a stop in Brooklyn at Acheron on April 28th. Full tour schedule and a stream of Speak Loud Say Nothing is below.

Bezoar, Iron Tides, and Descender are also on board for the Acheron show. Descender, who are also on board to play with Hawks & Doves (ex-Planes Mistaken for Stars), recently released the And So We Marched EP. Stream that and the new Wizard Rifle below...

I'm in for the press photo alone. It's so difficult to take one that dares to be different but somehow doesn't come off to silly. These guys delivered...they truly come off as weird (and that's a good thing).

p.s. Then they go above and beyond the call of duty with that "Speak Loud Say Nothing" track. What a ripper!

Very good band, rough night for shows in the area.

Holden and Skip, having completed their artistic photo shoot, get back on their fixies and hurry back to the parental-subsidized Bushwick wacky loft space just in time to devour Meagan and Petra's artisinal locally-sourced vegan zuccini kale pastries. Have at it, you crazy hipsters!

Ah nice a newer band worth checking out at Acheron unlike the other cookie cutter metal bands.

How about a half-caff soy latte?
