Old Wounds at the Acheron, 2012 (more by Fred Pessaro)
Old Wounds and Exalt, two big bringers of hardcore riffs, are hitting the road in September for an Invisible Oranges-presented tour. The package will run through a number of cities on the East Coast including Philadelphia, Montreal, and Toledo. Additionally, the tour will close things down with two NYC dates: September 26 at Grand Victory and September 27 at ABC No Rio. Ticket information is coming soon. All tour dates appear below.
Here's what we said on IO regarding Old Wounds: "The New Jerseyan quartet is laden with skills the older guard didn't have at their disposal, jamming with a practiced precision while cutting away the fat. What's left is tight and explosive, a memory of yesteryear made lean and mean by hindsight." Their next EP, Death Projection, will be released by Good Fight Music on September 16 and is now available for preorder. You can stream a track from it below.
Canada's Exalt also garnered similar praise: "The quintet rages, re-energizing hardcore and metalcore stand-bys and making them shine again. Exalt excavate a tradition that has its share of neat riffs, finding the neatest ones to reconstruct to their liking."
All of the dates along with streams from the bands appear below.
