Powerviolence vets Suppression touring, playing one of the final Acheron shows


Veteran grindcore/powerviolence outfit Suppression have just kicked off a tour. For those unfamiliar, vocalist and bassist Jason Hodges has his hands in a lot of projects, as the head of Chaotic Noise records, as a member of several other bands like MUTWAWA, Japanese Torture Comedy Hour and Brown Piss, and as a frequent Agoraphobic Nosebleed collaborator. But Suppression is ground zero for Hodges, and they are often considered a foundational grind act. And, as a Richmond-based grind outfit, they have had a lot of overlap with unofficial grindcore overlord Scott Hull. They released new music this year in the form of a split with Energumo, which you can stream below.

The tour will take them through NYC, where they’ll play one of the last-ever shows at The Acheron on July 2. They’ll be joined by Geryon, Skullshitter and Hasj, and tickets for that are on sale now.

All dates listed, along with that new split, below.
