Old Wounds at the Acheron, 2012 (More by Fred Pessaro)
Metalcore ragers Old Wounds have released another track from Death Projection, their new release out through Good Fight on September 16. It's called "Bloodpact" and it's another high-powered speaker wrecker, turning the aggression way up on hardcore chugs and throat-charring screams. You can check that out on Pitchfork and stream previously released tracks "Dead Beat Blues" and "Ritual" below.
Old Wounds will be kicking off their Invisible Oranges presented Death Projection Tour 2014 Friday (9/12)in Montclair, New Jersey. They'll be joined for this run of shows by Kitchener, Ontario's Exalt. The bands have two back-to-back NYC dates in the near future, playing Grand Victory on September 26 with Divider and Meek Is Murder (tickets) and ABC No Rio on September 27 with the Banner and Go Deep ($8 at the door). Following this stretch, Old Wounds will head back out on the road for an East Coast run in late October/early November with Vices.
During that Oct/Nov run, Old Wounds play The Fest. Their show happens 11/1 at The Atlantic with Creepoid, Self Defense Family, Old Gray, Tiny Moving Parts, Goodtime Boys, Xerxes, You'll Live, Dangers, Single Mothers, Rescuer, a mystery band and more.
All of the dates along with Old Wounds' "Dead Beat Blues" and "Ritual" appear below.

Sleepyhead have centered around singer/guitarist Chris O'Rourke and drummer Rachael McNally since 1989 when they formed while students at NYU. With a sound that was both noisy and winsome, Sleepyhead released records on Slumberland, Homestead and other labels in the '90s. O'Rourke and McNally, now married, still make music and with new bassist Derej Van Beever, Sleepyhead just released Wild Sometimes, their first album in 15 years, via stalwart Chicago indie label Carrot Top. You can stream the whole thing below and check out the video for "Life is Hard" which co-stars the bandmembers' kids.
Sleepyhead have a couple live dates coming up, including one at NYC's Union Hall on Saturday (9/13) with The Special Pillow (featuring former Sleepyhead bassist and Hypnolovewheel member Dan Cuddy) and Tim Foljahn (Two Dollar Guitar). Tickets for that show are on sale. The band also have a Boston-area show coming up and dates are listed, along with video and album streams, below...

Swedish singer/songwriter Alice Boman packaged this year's EP II with last year's Skisser EP for her debut US release this past June, and last night (9/10) she kicked off her US tour in support of it in Boston. The tour comes to NYC on Sunday (9/14) at Baby's All Right with support from Brooklyn dark pop artist Fielded (who also opens tonight's Philly show) and Seattle's Tomten. The show starts at 8 PM after Baby's hosts the early evening Classic Album Sundays listening event for Jeff Buckley's Grace with a live set from Gary Lucas, whose band Gods and Monsters once included Jeff as a member and who has taken part in other Jeff Buckley tributes over the years. Tickets for the Alice Boman show and the Jeff Buckley party are on sale now. All of Alice's dates are listed below.
Alice recently filmed a live-in-studio session of "Be Mine" from EP II with a four-piece backing band that includes two horn players, a backing vocalist and a drummer. The video (filmed and edited by Jesper Berg, recorded and mixed by Emil Isaksson) makes its premiere in this post. You can watch that, with the music video for "Over" from the EP, below.
In addition to her own material, Alice also recently recorded a cover of "Red Eyes," a standout track from the new War On Drugs album. Melodically, it's "Red Eyes" all right, but she plays it in her own spacey piano pop/vibrato vocal style. You can listen to that, with both videos and the list of dates, below...
Two solid (heh) fuzzy (heh heh) bands from different parts of the globe, Montreal's Solids and Glasgow's PAWS, will be going on separate tours soon that meet up in NYC for the Ipsum/Heavy Trip CMJ showcase happening at Shea Stadium on October 24. Also on the bill is another Montreal band, HEAT, Chicago's Meat Wave and NYC's Washer.
For Solids, that show falls right in the middle of their tour with Single Mothers and The Flatliners, which includes a Long Island show a day later (without Single Mothers). Tickets for LI are still available.

Chicago's Cut Teeth formed back in 2011 by Matt Jordan of the great Stay Ahead of the Weather (one of Evan Weiss' many bands), Dustin Currier of the recently-reunited Felix Culpa, Dan Yingling of '90s/early '00s screamo band Forstella Ford (and a few others), and Kyle Johns of '00s emo band Monday's Hero. They self-released their debut EP, Televandalism, the following year, and it was later re-released by Topshelf who is now putting out their first full length, Night Years, on October 28 (pre-order). We've got the premiere of its brand new single, "Christmas on Easter Island," a post-hardcore ripper with some shades of Murder City Devils and Hot Snakes. Check it out below.
Cut Teeth's only upcoming show at the moment is the Chicago stop of the Felix Culpa / Rescuer / Aviator tour happening October 17 at the Beat Kitchen (tickets). That tour hits NYC a few days later for the free No Sleep CMJ showcase (co-presented by BV) which includes other bands like Foreign Tongues who put out a new video this morning.
Stream the new Cut Teeth track below...

The reunited Felix Culpa released a split with newer band Foreign Tongues last month (August) on No Sleep (order yours), and now there's a video for one of Foreign Tongues' contributions, "Luxury," premiering in this post. Foreign Tongues singer Cameron Moretti sounds more than a little influenced by Conor Oberst, and though Foreign Tongues are a bit more polished than early Bright Eyes, their sad folky indie rock should appeal to fans of the Collection of Songs - Lifted era. You can check out the new video below.
Foreign Tongues also have a short Northeast tour coming up in October, which kicks off with the previously discussed FREE No Sleep CMJ Showcase (co-presented by BrooklynVegan) happening on October 21 at The Paper Box (17 Meadow St in Brooklyn) with John Nolan, Run Forever, Xerxes, Rescuer, Aviator, Maps For Travelers, The Felix Culpa and more. After that, they'll hit Cambridge, Hamden, CT and Philly. All dates are listed below.

Jon Ben-Menachem and Sam Thornton met in 2012 during their Freshmen year at NYU, bonding over Ween. Having pulled other members from the jazz program with Ben-Menachem when auditioning, Whitewash was formed, making their own brand of melodic, lightly psychedelic rock. The band's debut EP, Fraud in Lisbon, comes out next week (9/16), and we've got the premiere of "Logocenter" from it. Stream it below.
Whitewash will play a record release show on Wednesday (9/17) at Knitting Factory Brooklyn with Mumblr and The Brittanys. Tickets are on sale now. Flyer for the show and the song stream are below...
