United Nations

United Nations, the shrouded supercrew containing vocalist Geoff Rickly at the helm, are playing shows in middle January, including one at Saint Vitus on January 18 with support from Brooklyn crews Primitive Weapons, Descender, and Black Clouds. Tickets are on sale. Look for the rest of UN to be comprised of Ben Koller (Converge), Lukas Previn (Thursday, Regents), and Jim Carroll (The Hope Conspiracy).

In related news, The Hope Conspiracy have stepped out of hiding to announce work on new material. No details on said material or when/where it will emerge yet.

Also, Descender will join Ghostlimb and Old Wounds at Precious Metal on Monday (January 7). The show will be one of the final PM events, and will feature yours truly (Fred Pessaro, BBG) on DJ duties.

More United Nations tour dates and some streams are below.


Jan 18 Saint Vitus Brooklyn, NY
Jan 19 Atlantic City, NJ
Jan 20 DC9 Washington DC

Primitive Weapons are the fucking worst. How do they keep getting on shows?

the worst? you really must be hating music.

No, I just hate uninspired hardcore. They've got their faux anger, and run-of-the-mill style. And if they own Saint Vitus that may explain why they get on shows THERE, but doesn't explain how they get on other shows, and not just in NY either. Totally boring shit, and I've had to wait through them to see Incendiary at Acheron and a seemingly endless 35-minute set opening for Blacklisted and Into Another.

@1:39 Can't wait for your band to take over all the Primitive Weapons sets so you can save us from all the totally boring, uninspired hardcore.
