Chain of Strength at Acheron in 2012 (more by Fred Pessaro)
Hardcore vets Chain of Strength, who were briefly around from 1988 to 1991, reunited in 2012 for Revolution 25 (pics) at Irving Plaza and a much smaller Brooklyn show at Acheron (pics). They've since played LA in 2013 and it turns out the reunion isn't over yet, as they'll be going on a short Northeast tour in June with Turnstile, Strife, Mindset and Praise which brings them back to Brooklyn's Acheron on June 15. Tickets for that show go on sale via Ticketfly on May 8. All dates are listed below.
The brief tour is leading up to their appearance at Canada's Amnesia Rockfest (6/20-21) with blink-182, Motley Crue, Weezer, Alice In Chains, Megadeth, Primus, Danzig with Doyle, Mastodon, Cock Sparrer, Black Flag, Fear, Dead Kennedys, Misfits, Joan Jett, Brand New, Taking Back Sunday, Meshuggah, Henry Rollins, Rocket from the Crypt, Judge, Strife, Glassjaw, Dying Fetus, Cannibal Corpse, Title Fight and many more. Tickets for that fest are on sale now.

DOWNLOAD: Sorority Noise - Rory Shield (MP3)
Sorority Noise, who you may have just caught on tour with Special Explosion, Teen Suicide, and Alex G, will follow 2013's Young Luck EP with their first full length, Forgettable, on May 13. It comes out in the US jointly via Evan Weiss' (Into It. Over It.) Storm Chasers and Derrick Shanholtzer's (TWIABP) Broken World Media, and will get a European release via Dog Knight (Nai Harvest, Playlounge). The record's first single, "Rory Shield," recalls the '90s power pop emo of bands like The Promise Ring and Knapsack, and that can be downloaded for free above or streamed below. Album artwork and tracklist below too.
The Connecticut band has a show in their hometown on Wednesday (3/26), which is the CT stop of the Solids / Pachangacha tour. After that, they'll play a few other Northeast dates with related band Old Gray and NJ emo noodlers Prawn, including the Property of Zack-presented pre-show to the Mixtape Festival. That show takes place at Amityville Music Hall (3/28) and also includes Slingshot Dakota, Cryptodira and Petal Tickets are on sale now. All dates are listed below.

Ceremony at Warsaw in 2012 (more by Joe McCabe)
As mentioned, ever-evolving punks Ceremony are set to play this year's This Is Hardcore festival in Philly (they play on 8/10) alongside Kid Dynamite, The Suicide File, Modern Life Is War, Judge, Blacklisted, Tragedy, 7 Seconds, Paint It Black, Code Orange Kids, Nails, Defeater, No Redeeming Social Value, Gwar, and more. Head to TiH's site for tickets. Updated lineup and schedule below.
Around the time of that festival, they'll be doing some other East Coast shows with Baltimore post-punk duo Ed Schrader's Music Beat. Those shows include one in Brooklyn on August 17 at 285 Kent, one in NJ on August 14 at Asbury Lanes, and a little farther out from NYC, they'll also play The El 'n' Gee on August 16 in New London, CT, but it might be worth the drive considering Joyce Manor and Glocca Morra are on that bill too. (It's also a day after Joyce Manor play a free NYC show at House of Vans with Kid Dynamite, Red Hare, and Swearin'). Tickets for the 285 Kent and El 'n' Gee shows go on sale Friday (6/21) at noon, and tickets for the Asbury Lanes show are on sale now.
You can also catch Ed Schrader's Music Beat in NYC even sooner at Death by Audio on June 28 with The Hussy, Barkley's Barnyard Critters (feat. Brian Gibson of Lightning Bolt), and Shark Muffin. Admission for that show is $7 at the door.
Ceremony have a few other coming shows, like one of those free Converse shows in San Francisco, which they'll play on June 27 with Suicidal Tendencies, Rocket from the Crypt, The Bronx, and the Shrine. All dates are listed, along with a few videos, below.
Put the rumors and gossiping to rest, the BNB Takeover proudly announced the complete line-up for this year's Black N Blue Bowl which will feature a highly anticipated reunion from JUDGE. A complete list of announced bands and details are as follows;Check out the full lineup below...
Negative Approach at Fun Fun Fun Fest (more by BBG)
This is Hardcore returns to Philadelphia, PA for four days in August at Union Transfer (on 8/9) and Electric Factory (8/10 - 8/12). Both shows will have no barricades for you headwalkers/divers and in the case of Electric Factory, the venue will actually construct a stage in front of their usual stage (!) to get around the existing barricade. Now thats dedication/brutality.
As for the lineup, as usual the cast of hooligans gracing the stages of TIHC are a cast of notables, including Cro-Mags, Negative Approach, Gorilla Biscuits, Breakdown, Blacklisted, Killing Time, Nails, Ringworm, Gehenna and many many more. Full lineup is below and tickets go on sale on May 17th at noon.
Power Trip is part of said lineup, and reminder, the band will hit Acheron on May 15th as part of a string of East Coast dates. All tour dates are below.

Four stages and more. Fun Fun Fun Fest truly is non-stop fun of many varieties. BBG spent most of Friday at the Black Stage (the one Danzig headlined). His pictures, including Thee Oh Sees, Ty Segall, Murder City Devils, Russian Circles and the afterparty at Red 7, continue below...

La Dispute at The Acheron in 2010 (more by Andrew St. Clair)
Genre bending post-hardcore outfit La Dispute will release their sophomore LP Wildlife on October 4 via No Sleep Records. Though the album title isn't nearly as epic as their 2008 debut Somewhere At the Bottom of the River Between Vega and Altair, from the driving drum patterns of album opener, "A Departure," it's clear that Wildlife is no simpler affair. While their debut was very much an album about relationships, on Wildlife we hear frontman Jordan Dreyer frantically contemplating heavier topics such as life and death. The album's longest track, "King Park," ends with Jordan pleading, "Can I still get into heaven if I kill myself?" Musically, the album's got less riffing going on than their debut, but the band finds appeal in other forms. "Safer in the Forest/Love Song for Poor Michigan" opens with an arpeggio that recalls The Bends-era Radiohead, "A Broken Jar" is an acoustic track not unlike the material on the band's Here, Hear EPs, and "St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church Blues" takes on a quasi-funk punk vibe. The album is currently streaming on La Dispute's website and can be pre-ordered from the No Sleep Webstore. The album art, tracklist, and a stream of album single "Harder Harmonies," is all below.
Though La Dispute can get pretty progressive on their albums, they don't tone down the aggression at live shows. I caught them at The Studio in May with Defeater and they delivered the whole show in classic hardcore fashion with nonstop moshing and crowd shoutalongs. They're about to kick off a tour opening for Thrice in support of the new album, which unfortunately won't bring them to venues as small as The Studio. It will hit the NYC-area on two separate occasions though. First on October 14 at Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ and then on October 16 at Irving Plaza. Tickets are available for the Starland show and the Irving Plaza show.
Speaking of Defeater, they're about to head out on a tour with Bane that kicks off in NYC on October 12 at Santos Party House and hits Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin. Dead End Path and Miles Away are also on the tour.
All dates, song stream, album art and tracklist below...

Starkweather at ABC No Rio
This Is Hardcore Fest 2010 details are officially in the open, and the three day Philly festival will feature appearances from Sheer Terror, Ink & Dagger (with Geoff Rickly of Thursday filling in on vocals), Kid Dynamite, Cro-Mags, Nails, Ringworm, Starkweather, Trapped Under Ice, Seraphim, and many others. The full list is below. Tickets are on sale for the full weekend, or each individual day (Fri, Sat) though Sunday (with Kid Dynamite and Ink & Dagger) is sold out.
One of the This is Hardcore bands, Starkweather, played ABC No Rio on Saturday (May 29) with Rosetta and Shell Shock, one of TWO Rosetta shows for the weekend (the second was the BV/1000 Knives production with Ken Mode). I ducked out before the headliner Shell Shock, and missed a good portion of Rosetta's set due to beverage consumption across the street, but Starkweather were as good (better?) than I had remembered, playing a mix of metal and hardcore all anchored by vocalist weighty and powerful Rennie Resmini's voice. The band's material from their new LP This Sheltering Night sounded fantastic live as well (cop that). More pictures from their appearance are below.
Another This is Hardcore band, Seraphim, is also on board to play SATURDAY at Cake Shop alongside Altered State, Voyager, and Monolith as part of a BV/1000 Knives/Science of Silence production. The show kicks off at 5PM!

Indecision at Irving Plaza 2008 (photo by Jason Jamal Neklah)
NYC hardcore band Indecision technically threw in the towel in 2000, but since then the band (which contains members of Most Precious Blood, The Judas Factor, Millhouse and others) has periodically gotten back together for one off dates (like they did in 2008). The band is back again and have scheduled an NYC show at Knitting Factory on July 10th with Backtrack, Incendiary, (who are playing Black & Blue Bowl this weekend) and Thirsty!. Tickets are on sale.
Touche Amore killed it last week at Santos (and at Red 7 in March), and will be back again to whip the crowd into a frenzy when they support Strike Anywhere and Bane alongside Lowtaker at Knitting Factory on June 20th. Tickets are on sale.
And finally Off With Their Heads will headline Knitting Factory alongside Dear Landlord, Detournement, and Dirt Bike Annie on June 23rd. Tickets are on sale. OWTH will welcome their new LP and Epitaph debut, In Desolation, via Epitaph Records on June 8th.
Full Off With Their Heads and Strike Anywhere dates are below...

From Ashes Rise (photo by Nathan Baker)
Formed in Nashville in the mid-'90s, From Ashes Rise helped define the gloom-heavy thrash sound attributed to groups like His Hero is Gone, Systral and Tragedy... Representative of a staunchly underground breed of aggressive, basement punk, many heads devoted strictly to aesthetic were shocked at the band's hitching with Jade Tree Records. Drawing on obscure thrash bands from Scandinavia and Japan, as well as Discharge's venerated "D-beat," From Ashes Rise helped carry the aggro torch for Jade Tree. The band split up in Fall 2005 after doing a tour with the legendary UK band the Subhumans.From Ashes Rise have announced their resurrection after a five year hiatus with a new live show, at Satyricon in Portland, OR on February 21! Here's to hoping that the band will follow-up with a full US tour, or at least NYC. Members of From Ashes Rise have gone on to play in Tragedy, Deathreat, and World Burns To Death among many others.
Tragedy recently played Studio B in Brooklyn with Morne and Blacklisted. Blacklisted are scheduled to play the Deathwish / Chronic Youth day party along with Bane, Maximum Penalty, Cold World, The Banner, Foundation, and Incendiary at Santos Party House on 10/24.
Flyer for the Deathwish/CY show is below.

Sammy Siegler of Rival Schools (and CIV) @ at Irving Plaza (more by Tim Griffin)
Besides the SOIA show, Bane and Capital will also join forces with Crime In Stereo, Have Heart, The Agent, Backtrack, and Naysayer at Europa in Brooklyn on April 26th. Tickets are on sale.
In other news, Lou Koller (SOIA) collaborated in 1995 on Set Your Goals, the now out-of-print debut by CIV. Back in October 2008, we found out that there was some movement on the CIV front:
CIV [has stayed]... great friends and since we own our masters, we've been kinda stupid in that we haven't made it available. Since we broke up in 1999, our music has been out in any kind of organized way... digitally or anything. So I think we might put together a discography and just package it up really nice... we've got tons of content and photos... b-sides and videos. I think when that comes out, we will probably have an opportunity to do some shows, nothing on the level of a full tour or anything, but it could be fun. -[Sammy Siegler, Oct 2008]Now comes word that CIV will release Solid Bond: The Complete Discography on May 19, 2009 via Equal Vision Records. According to Spinner, the 43 song 2CD comp will get "the box treatment". As hinted above, and again in the Spinner piece, CIV may do some shows to accompany the release. We'll keep you posted.
In other classic NYHC news, HR will headline day two of the Underground Revolution Fest at Gramercy Theatre in May. Reagan Youth, Kraut, Blanks '77, The Allstonians,Hub City Stompers, and many many others are also on the bill. Details and all dates below...

Attila Csihar of Mayhem, The Winterdemon (metalnorge)
Highly influential black metallers Mayhem have announced that they will tour the US in spring of 2009! The 21 date tour will be announced soon, but in the meantime, look for the band to announce a new guitarist to replace departing axe-slinger Blasphemer. Mayhem's Attila Csihar lent his unholy vokills to the new Jarboe record Mahakali due Oct 14th on The End. Skip on down for video of Thurston Moore discussing Mayhem.
Doomriders are currently grinding away at their new album due on Deathwish in 2009! In the meantime, look for the band to hit the Autobahn on a European tour with Disfear & SSS. SSS is currently streaming two new tracks from their upcoming record The Dividing Line. Doomriders recently played Europa.
Guitarist Kris Norris has left Darkest Hour and is "actively pursing some producing routes and any band that might want a guitarist".
Corrupted LIVE (tawaraya)
The extremely elusive Japanese doomers (in fact, the above is one of the only pictures I have ever found of them), Corrupted announced a brief West Coast tour with Asunder, check out the flyer here. Asunder's Works Will Come Undone recently dropped on vinyl via Kreation Records, pick it up here. Corrupted's (current? these guys are elusive I tell ya!) bassist Lowell Isles's old band, YOB recently reformed.
Bloodbath, the death metal supergroup featuring Mikael Åkerfeldt (Opeth), Anders "Blakkheim" Nyström (Katatonia), Jonas Renkse (Katatonia), Martin "Axe" Axenrot(ex-Witchery, Opeth), and Per "Sodomizer" Eriksson, will drop their new studio album The Fathomless Mystery on Oct 28th via Peaceville Records.
