Tombs @ Union Pool in March (BKLYN) (more by Di Lynn Ring)
Brooklyn's Tombs are beginning to announce a fall tour. Just a couple dates have surfaced so far, including a performance at Township on October 16 with labelmates 16 (fitting, right?) and Chicago's Jar'd Loose. Advance tickets for the Chicago show are on sale. All known dates are listed at the bottom of this post.
Tombs released their most recent album, the great Path of Totality, in 2011 via Relapse Records. While we wait for the follow-up to Path of Totality-- they'll be heading into the studio this winter-- you can check out two different versions of their take on David Bowie's "Heroes" below. One has been dubbed "the NYC Mix" and the other is called "the Berlin Mix," and features a verse sung in German by Ralph Schmidt (Hëllström, Planks). The tracks premiered this morning (8/29) via Ghettoblaster, and you can read a bit about why they chose to cover Bowie at the site.
All known Tombs dates and some song streams (including their Bowie cover(s)) are below...

The Atlas Moth have completed their trek with the amazing KEN Mode, capping off a round of dates with a homecoming show at Ultra Lounge on Sunday (10/16). The show featured direct support from the not-often-seen Wolvhammer who, though scattered across the country but primarily located in Chicago, directly supported The Atlas Moth that night along with locals Jarrd Loose. Pictures from the show are are in this post.
Next up for The Atlas Moth broze (who we recently interviewed), is a tour with the ever-so-mighty Kowloon Walled City on the latter's home turf of the West Coast. The tour will intersect with NYC's Batillus, who play their last NYC show with Inter Arma & Belus on 10/26 at The Acheron in Brooklyn and will hit SubT Lounge on November 23rd with local favorites Yakuza and The Swan King. Tour dates for those odysseys are below, along with more photos from Ultra Lounge...
Wolvhammer 2011 (photo by Samantha Marble)
Recent Chicago transplant Heath Rave sat down with BrooklynVegan to discuss his band Wolvhammer, his alliance with fellow Chicago native and ex-Nachtmystium member jeff Wilson, and what he loves about the windy city. Here's a clip:
BV: How do you think your move to Chicago has changed your personal outlook, and possibly your view on Wolvhammer?Read the rest of the interview and listen to a new song while you're at it, at BrooklynVegan.
HR: Nothings really changed for Wolvhammer, if anything I'm getting more excited about it now. I'm a lot happier in Chicago, especially with my job and getting to spend more time with some of my best friends, I'm still just taking it all in but its been fucking awesome. Chicago is what you make of it, if you don't work hard there it will eat you alive, and I guess that's my favorite part about.
BV: Favorite Chicago haunts?
HR: I go to the Rocking Horse a lot since its so close to my house and they have some of the best chicken wings I've ever had. Occasionally I'll stop by Flatiron, its in the building I work in and some good friends work there. The Empty Bottle for shows.
BV: Favorite Chicago bands?
HR: The Atlas Moth, Indian, Lord Mantis, Nachtmystium, Bloodiest, Circle of Animals.
