Retox - 'YPLL'
Justin Pearson's (of The Locust) current project, Retox, who have been on tour this month, are releasing their new album, YPLL, next week (5/28) via Epitaph. It's a short (12 songs in under 22 minutes) blast of furious hardcore, and you can stream the entire thing below.
Retox will bring their tour through Austin this week to open for The Dillinger Escape Plan when DEP bring their previously announced tour with Royal Thunder and The Faceless to Mohawk on Friday (5/24). Tickets for that show are still available.
DEP's tour (without Retox) also hits El Paso the day before the Mohawk show, and Retox play their own show in Houston that day (5/23) too. Check out pictures of DEP's recent NYC show on BrooklynVegan.
All remaining dates are listed, along with the album stream, below...

After a week of SXSW shows, the first annual Invisible Oranges SXSW showcase (in partnership with BrooklynVegan) at The North Door on Saturday night, March 16th was a good comedown, mixing the brutal with introspective in an inviting venue. Featuring a headlining set from melodic doom favorites Pallbearer (who also played our day party earlier that week at old Emo's), a mesmerizing performance from John Baizley (of Baroness) with surprise guests Bruce Lamont and Mel from Royal Thunder, punk-y black metal from Mutilation Rites, nihilism and powerviolence from Full of Hell, metallic noise-core from KEN Mode (who filled in for an ailing Pinkish Black), and grunting hardcore beatdowns from Homewrecker, it was a great night of heavy music. Invisible Oranges/BrooklynVegan would like to send a personal thank you to all of the bands and fans who attended/streamed the show live. Iif you missed it, look for video from the show to surface very soon!
Until next year!

Skeletonwitch / Trash Talk / Vattnet Viskar
The Pitchfork Show No Mercy showcase on March 13th was one of several Vans shows at Mohawk that week, encompassing two stages of heavy music that ran the gamut from crusty hardcore to thrash to 70s-style hard rock to Pinkish Black's unclassifiable oddness (a compliment, if there ever was one). Featuring a headlining set from Skeletonwitch on the large large outdoor stage and local heroes Power Trip on the indoor, the show also had appearances from Trash Talk, Royal Thunder, Wetlungs, Pallbearer, Encrust, Mutilation Rites, Vattnet Viskar, Inter Arma, Batillus and more. A full set of pictures and full sets of video from both stages are below.
Pitchfork will be returning to Austin for a number of SXSW events, including two at Mohawk and two at 1100 Warehouse (1100 E 5th St.).
