Concrete Asylum & Abject Pax released EPs, touring together (dates, streams)

By Doug Moore


It turns out that the demonym for Halifax, Canada is “Haligonian.” You learn something new every day. Let’s try using that in a sentence: the Haligonian hardcore bands Concrete Asylum and Abject Pax both have new EPs out this fall. Concrete Asylum’s EP in particular, which is a repressing of their 2012 demo tape, rips — it falls somewhere between raw punk and grindy, West Coast-y powerviolence. You can stream it below. (You may also remember the band playing Toronto’s Not Dead Yet Fest back in November.)

The two are teaming up for a brief tour around New Year’s, including an NYC stop at The Acheron on December 29. Tickets are on sale now. Support will come from locals Ugly Parts and the excellently-named Gowanus Mutant Kommandos.

Listen to the new releases by both Haligonian(!) bands, and take a look at their other known dates, below.
