Lower at Chaos in Tejas 2013 (more by Sarah Frankie Linder)

NYC's Cult of Youth just shared a stage with Skinny Puppy at Webster Hall for someone's idea of a happy Valentine's Day, but if you were preoccupied with a more traditional celebration, the band will be playing the previously mentioned Nothing Changes party this Wednesday (2/19) with Damien Dubrovnik and Helm. As usual, things will get started late (midnight-ish) at Home Sweet Home.

Damien Dubrovnik is a project from Loke Rahbek and Christian Stadsgaard, the duo behind the Copenhagen label Posh Isolation. Posh Isolation is putting on a two day fest out in Los Angeles called "13 Torches For A Burn" on May 16 & 17 at The Church on York that, in addition to label staples like Lust for Youth and Sexdrome and alums Iceage, will feature performances by acts that make it stateside less frequently (if ever), including Puce Mary and Age Coin. The show is being billed as Sexdrome's last-ever show, so get it while it's hot if you live in LA. Danish punks Lower will be there too, and tickets for both days and two-day passes are on sale now.

Virile Games, who is playing Nothing Changes on 2/26 with Withdrawal Method, just put out an EP titled Wounded Laurel (a reissue of an earlier double cassette) on Hospital Productions. A month and change later, Virile Games will team up with local black metal-tinged punk favs Raspberry Bulbs, Anxiety Hammer and DJ Anthony Pappalardo for a show at Baby's All Right on 3/29. Tickets for that show are on sale.

Cult of Youth: "We are Nazis/no I'm sorry we were joking". The singer owns a record store called Heaven Street, which was what the Nazis called the path leading jews into the gas chamber.

Anti-semitic imagery and references are not cool or edgy, and can't be passed off as postmodern. If you roll around in that shit you better have a reason. And just saying "it's art" doesn't fucking cut it.

"Using the name "Heiliger" was a cynical Nazi joke, since the word means saint, from the word heilig (holy). Such "humor" was not unusual in Nazi circles. For example, the one-way path to the gas chamber at Sobibor extermination camp was called Himmelstrasse, meaning "Heaven Street" –the road to Heaven."

Anti-semitic references are not cool or edgy, you fake trust-fund punks.

Nazi man, I agree with what you're saying but can't help but to think your favorite band is still Joy Division.

Lower sound like Rain Like the Sound of Trains or some bullshit. Plus that whole J Crew catalog look they've got going on.

Anyone else notice how J Elenidis posts the same comments every single time COY is mentioned on this site and sometimes reposts them later in the feed if he feels like he's not getting enough attention? How about you do something creative instead of spending all your time acting like man attack squad. No one in Cult of Youth is a Nazi. No one in Cult of Youth is anti-semetic. And they are about as likely to change their name as New Order is.

Get a life dude. You're no better that those ANTIFA types who curb stomp anyone who with a rune tattoo. Go back to Tumblr where you belong.

It is still an advantage to have a career that is more unique than everybody else.

I really love Cult of Youth. Some say that J. Elenidis was cursed because he was a greedy little piggy!! But anyway, Cult of Youth are a talented band.
