Iron Reagan

Given that Iron Reagan consists of current and former members of two very well-established metal bands (namely Municipal Waste & Darkest Hour), it's no surprise that they're on their way up so quickly. Formed just two years ago, this straight-ahead crossover thrash act has already built a substantial national following and adopted an aggressive tour schedule.

To wit: the band have announced their recent signing to the storied Relapse Records (who have been snatching up bands left and right lately -- they've signed IR, Torche, The Drip, Atriarch, & Nux Vomica this year alone). They've also announced an extensive run of live dates through March and April, with accompaniment from Occultist on most of the dates and Ghoul on a handful as well. The dates with Ghoul wrap up with an appearance at the aforementioned Tankcrimes Brainsqueeze festival; you can stream the Invisible Oranges-debuted Tankcrimes compilation of fest participants below.

Iron Reagan aren't hitting NYC on this run, unfortunately, but they'll be putting in a number of appearances at SXSW: the Pitchfork showcase on 3/11, the Converse/Thrasher show on 3/13, the MetalSucks showcase on 3/14, and the Tone Deaf showcase on 3/15. They're NOT appearing at the second annual Invisible Oranges showcase, which will feature Black Tusk, Mutoid Man, Kayo Dot, Yautja, Wild Throne, & Venomous Maximus on 3/13 at the Quantum Lounge.

Stream that Tankcrimes comp and check out the full run of Iron Reagan dates, listed below...

These boys leave no metal gimmick unturned. Municipal Waste, party thrash. Cannabis Corpse, stoner death metal. Iron Reagan, political crossover. What's next, french canadian sci-fi prog thrash a la VoiVod?
