Blis.

Atlanta's Blis. debuted in 2013 with the self-released Moving Foward EP, and earlier this year they followed it with Starting Fires in my Parents House on Soft Speak Records. Starting Fires quickly and deservedly gained some internet buzz, and then they landed a deal with Sargent House (Boris, Russian Circles, Chelsea Wolfe), who will release their first full length this fall.

Starting Fires has Blis. pulling equally from the kind of indie rock and post-hardcore we were getting in the early 2000s, but that (mostly) didn't start crossing paths until more recently with things like Modest Mouse / Brand New shows. They're "indie rock" in the sense that they seem to be consciously writing rock music that isn't made for the radio. It has tricky time signatures, off-kilter dynamic shifts, and vocals that some people might say "sound weird." Some moments are quiet and singer/songwriter-y, and out of nowhere they'll switch to huge power chords and piercing screams. It's really promising stuff, and this upcoming album seems like one to look out for.

Meanwhile, stream the EP and watch the new video for opening track "Floating Somewhere High and Above" below. The band's only upcoming show at the moment is hometown festival Wrecking Ball with the stacked lineup of Descendents, Judge, Desaparecidos, The Get Up Kids, Modern Life Is War, American Nightmare, The Appleseed Cast and more (tickets).

GWAR

GWAR, who were just in NYC for the Empire Records 20th anniversary, will be putting on another installment of their annual GWAR-B-Q this year. The fest happens in Richmond from August 14-16. Day 1 happens at two RVA venues, The National and The Broadberry, day 2 happens at Hadad's Lake, and the final day will have a "Brutal Brunch" at the new GWARbar.

Meanwhile, the band are currently dealing with legal trouble from their late frontman Dave Brockie's father.

For Descendents, this is their third 2015 show announced so far, including the free Converse Boston show and Atlanta's Wrecking Ball festival.

Severed Heads

Australian EBM/Industrial vets Severed Heads will be touring the US this fall, playing dates in seven cities including NYC on September 24 at Santos Party House. That's their first NYC show since 1990. Tickets to that show will be available soon via Ticketweb. All dates are listed below.

Formed in 1979, they began as tape loop manipulators not unlike Cabaret Voltaire but, by the late '80s, pop melodies became a major part of their sound and singles "Greater Reward" and "All Saints Day" were hits on College Radio and in alternative dance clubs. You can stream those below. Their last major tour here was with MC 900 Ft. Jesus (remember "Truth is Out of Style"? anyone?). Frontman Tom Ellard has kept the Severed Heads flag flying off-and-on ever since. Their website says a new album is due out this year.

Their tour wraps up in Chicago for the two-day Cold Waves IV Fest which happens at Metro on September 25 & 26 which also includes appearances from Godflesh, Front Line Assembly, Pow Will Eat Itself (Clint Mansell is not in this lineup, FYI), Lustmord, Lead Into Gold and more. Tickets for Cold Waves IV are on sale and full lineup is listed below.

Jeff Rosenstock

Jeff Rosenstock is on tour now, having already played NYC six times this year, and he's got a seventh show here coming up. It's a free one happening on May 30 at Brooklyn Night Bazaar with the Max Levine Ensemble and other bands TBA.

Jeff is currently on a run with Chumped, which will be nearby NYC this weekend on Sunday (4/26) at Asbury Lanes (tickets). Both Jeff and Chumped were announced last night for The Fest. Updated dates are listed below.

In less happy news, at the recent Austin stop of the Jeff/Chumped tour, a woman tweeted about being "groped by five or more straight white dudes" because they said she "didn't deserve front row." Jeff took to his Twitter to call those guys out, and his series of tweets reads:

It is complete total fucking bullshit that ****** didn't get to enjoy our show tonight because of male entitlement bullshit.

It is COMPLETELY TOTALLY INSANE TO ME THAT A FAN WAS GROPED AND HAD FINGERS SLIPPED UP HER SKIRT TONIGHT. MALE FANS WHO DID THIS: REALLY?!?!

To whoever did this: YOU SEXUALLY ASSAULTED SOMEONE TONIGHT. YOU VIOLATED A HUMAN BEING. ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?

THERE IS NO PLACE FOR YOU AT OUR SHOWS IF YOU DON'T HAVE RESPECT FOR WOMEN. FUCKING NONE. STOP LISTENING, STOP ATTENDING.

AND STOP GOING TO PUNK SHOWS PERIOD. THIS IS A SCENE BASED ON RESPECT FOR OTHERS.

AND MAYBE JUST DON'T GO OUT IN PUBLIC UNTIL YOU REALIZE THAT WE'RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER, WE'RE ALL EQUAL AND WE ALL DESERVE TO FEEL SAFE.

Maybe I need to say this more clearly although I thought it was clear as fucking day...

IF YOU ARE SEXIST, HOMOPHOBIC, RACIST, ETC. YOU ARE MISSING THE POINT OF EVERYTHING WE DO. PLEASE STOP "SUPPORTING" US IN ANY WAY

OR BETTER YET, IF YOU DON'T HAVE RESPECT FOR OTHERS AND YOU'RE READING THIS... STOP. YOU CAN CHANGE. YOU CAN BE BETTER.

THE WORLD IS EVOLVING BEYOND PREJUDICE. STOP BEING A DUMBSHIT, START RESPECTING THOSE UNLIKE YOU AND BE AHEAD OF THE PACK.

That is a bummer to hear.

Jeff's new album, We Cool?, came out earlier this year via SideOneDummy. Stream it in full, with his updated list of dates, below...

Neil Young

Neil Young will release a new album with Promise of the Real, the band featuring Willie Nelson's sons Lukas and Micah, called The Monsanto Years, on June 16. The album criticizes Monsanto, a corporation which genetically engineers seeds that Neil has spoken out against for years.
