Converge at Saint Vitus Bar, 2013 (more by Lukas Hodge)

Deathwish Inc. -- Jake Bannon of Converge's increasingly influential record label -- are following up what I can only imagine was their most lucrative year of operation to date (they released Deafheaven's Sunbather) with their first-ever standalone music festival. Creatively entitled Deathwish Fest, the bash will take place on July 22 and 23 at the Sinclair in Cambridge, MA. Both nights will be headlined by Converge (no surprise there) and Trap Them, who are preparing to release their first new album since 2011's Darker Handcraft. Both bands are restricting their 2014 Boston-area appearances to this fest. Some other notables include Modern Life Is War, Code Orange Kids, & Doomriders on 7/22 and Oathbreaker & Cult Leader (who will evidently be touring together as well; keep an eye out for updates here).

Tickets for individual days go on sale this Friday (4/11) at noonwith an AmEx presale beginning Wednesday (4/9) at noon. Two-day passes are $50 and if that math doesn't make sense to you, it's because you're not taking the Jake Bannon limited-run silkscreen print that comes with the two-day pass into account. Fans of wings, skulls, and splatter textures rejoice! Check out the full fest lineup below.

Code Orange Kids

As discussed, post-hardcore noisemakers Code Orange Kids are on a tour supporting Every Time I Die which comes to NYC for a show at Saint Vitus on Wednesday (12/18).

LetLive and Angel Du$t are also on both shows.

Closing Fun Fun Fun Fest, Slayer treated Austin to greatest hits and then some: "Raining Blood," "South of Heaven," "Dead Skin Mask," "Seasons in the Abyss," etc. They also dug out the aforementioned "Die by the Sword," a high point off their 1983 debut LP, Show No Mercy.

After fooling no one with a false ending of "South of Heaven," the third backdrop of the night unfurled at the back of the stage: a parody of the Heineken logo reading "Hanneman" and bearing his life dates. The top read "Angel of Death." Reign in Blood's terrifying opening track - and closing number on Auditorium Shores - now serves as an epitaph for Slayer's fallen co-founder. - [Austin Chronicle]

The eighth Fun Fun Fun Fest happened last weekend (11/8 - 11/10) at Austin's Auditorium Shores, hosting three days of music and fun (fun fun), with such acts as MIA, Deerhunter, Slayer, Television, Thee Oh Sees, Kurt Vile, Cut Copy. Johnny Marr, The Walkmen, Jurassic 5, Killer Mike and loads more. Many of them played again as part of the FFF Nites shows, including shows presented by BrooklynVegan and Invisible Oranges.

We were there in the thick of it and, as mentioned above, you can check out pics from Day 1  HERE and HERE, pics from Day 2 pics HERE and HERE; and pics from Day 3 are HERE and HERE. See you again in 2014 Austin.

Austin's Fun Fun Fun Fest starts today (11/8) and runs through Sunday (11/10), but those down in Austin got an early start to the fun fun fun last night (11/7) with the FFF Nites late shows. Last night's Nite shows included one with Kurt Vile, that we posted pictures of at BV Austin, and a BrooklynVegan-presented show at Holy Mountain with Title Fight and Code Orange Kids, plus local openers Boyfrndz and Pushmen. Hopefully everyone who waited in line got in. That's a shot of Title Fight from last night's intimate show above above, and there's one of Code Orange Kids below. Kurt, Title Fight and Code Orange Kids all play the fest proper today, as do Quicksand, Flag, Thee Oh Sees, Big Freedia, RJD2, Snoop Dog (!?), Cut Copy, The Walkmen, Patton Oswalt, and many more.

The festival and the night shows continues through Sunday with sets from Television, Slayer, Descendents, Dismemberment Plan, Body Count, Jurassic 5, MIA, MGMT, Cloud Nothings, White Lung, and more. You can still grab tickets, and if you're going, don't forget to check the schedule.

Our metal blog Invisible Oranges is also presenting a FFF Nites show on Saturday (11/9) with Black Tusk, Inter Arma, Yakuza and Eagle Claw.

Title Fight don't have any touring plans following FFF Fest, but they did just announce that they'll do their 10-year anniversary show (their first show was opening for Blacklisted on October 17, 2003) on November 30 in Northeast PA. Lineup and more details TBA. Flyer below.

Title Fight's new analog-recorded Spring Songs EP comes out next week (11/12) via Revelation Records. You can stream it in full on Pandora and below.

Title Fight

Fun Fun Fun Fest (minus Death Grips) is about to return to Austin, November 8-10 to be exact, and if you'll be down there for it, be sure to keep the fun fun fun going at night with the official FFF Nites shows. The shows are all free with a FFF Fest badge, and highlights include Kurt Vile at Mohawk, OBN IIIs/Blind Shake at Red 7, Subhumans/White Lung at Mohawk, Mac DeMarco/Quasi at North Door, Chelsea Light Moving/Lemuria/Merchandise/The Young at Red 7, Pelican/True Widow/Coliseum at Red 7, Del the Funky Homosapien/Flatbush Zombies at The Belmont, The Men at North Door, Cro-Mags/Ceremony at Holy Mountain, Retox/Narrows/Regents/Coliseum at Holy Mountain, Defeater at Holy Mountain, and Bonobo (DJ) at The Parish. Check out the full schedule here.

As we just mentioned, our metal blog Invisible Oranges is presenting one on Saturday (11/9) of the fest at Hotel Vegas with Black Tusk, Inter Arma, Yakuza, and Eagle Claw. That show doubles as the Austin stop on the Black Tusk/Inter Arma tour, which hits NYC on October 30 at Saint Vitus with Descender and No Way (tickets).

BrooklynVegan is also presenting a FFF Nites show on the Thursday (11/7) night before the festival begins, at Holy Mountain. The show kicks off with two local Austin bands: the metallic Pushmen (10:15 PM) and the proggy Boyfrndz (11 PM), and they'll be followed by post-hardcore noisemakers Code Orange Kids (midnight), and finally the emotionally-charged, boundary-pushing punk band Title Fight (1 AM).

Title Fight contributed the previously-unreleased song "Another One" to the new Will Yip compilation (stream it below), and they've also got a new EP, Spring Songs (which was recorded completely analog), coming out right after FFF (11/12) via Revelation Records.

Code Orange Kids have been touring maniacs lately, having just played NYC at The Studio at Webster Hall last night (10/24) with Power Trip, Counterparts, Terror, and more; and are set to return for a sold-out show at Saint Vitus (12/18) with Every Time I Die.

Stream that Title Fight song below...

Full of Hell at Saint Vitus (more by Fred Pessaro)
Full of Hell

Full of Hell's Rudiments of Mutilation is clearly moving. After selling out on preorders shortly after announcement, the first pressing sold through soon thereafter, and now the record is into its second pressing. The digital version has always been on sale at regular price though -- that is until this week. Full of Hell have now released their new LP for pay-what-you-want via Bandcamp for this week only (stream it below). A389 Records have the physical version, which is also disappearing rapidly.

Full of Hell is a touring machine, and will be on the road with Loma Prieta/Fucking Invincible in the coming days before heading across the pond for dates with Circle Takes the Square/Code Orange Kids. No shows in NYC but they do play Hartford,CT at Webster Underground on September 6. Dates are listed, along with the album stream, below.

CTTS

As discussed, Gainesville's The Fest is returning this year from October 31 to November 3, and they've just expanded their lineup to include more artists. Additions includes post-hardcore/screamo giants Circle Takes The Square, who have been reunited for a bit but still only rarely play US shows; Geoff Rickly's United Nations, who are also back, but have not been as active as Geoff's solo project; punk vets ALL; Titus Andronicus (who have multiple NYC-area appearances coming up); Fake Problems and more.

Those recent additions join previously announced names like Torche, White Lung, Bouncing Souls, Ceremony, Braid, Paint It Black, Samiam, Knapsack (reunion), The Draft (reunion), The Menzingers, The Lawrence Arms, Hop Along, Code Orange Kids, Creative Adult, Pity Sex, Mean Jeans, Retox, Lemuria, Greys, Tenement, Tim Barry, Toys That Kill, The Night Marchers and more. Tickets for The Fest are on sale now.

Circle Takes The Square returned in December, 2012 with Decompositions Volume Number One, their first album of new material since reuniting and second overall. It's not the instant masterpiece that their 2004 debut, As the Roots Undo, is, but it's still damn good. Download it in its entirety at bandcamp (name your price) or stream it in its entirety, along with the updated The Fest lineup, below.

Ceremony at Warsaw in 2012 (more by Joe McCabe)
Ceremony

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.

Adventures

If I told you that a band featured 3/4 of Code Orange Kids, you might think you have an idea what they sound like. Yet Pittsburgh's Adventures use only some of the influences found in that project, adding in splashes of indie riffs on their latest EP Clear My Head With You. Due on June 18, the result is something akin to Superchunk or post-hardcore as you can tell by the first track to sneak its way out of the gates, "Promise," which is streaming below.

Order yours at No Sleep and while your there you can also order the new Xerxes as well (here).

Code Orange Kids

Opening with a shimmering guitar riff, buried clean vocals and reverb galore, the song opens up into something darker/more sinister as the track progresses. Stream it below, and order your copy on digital/7" via Bandcamp or one of the labels (Top Shelf, Run for Cover).

COK have a limited number of US dates scheduled so far, but will hit The Studio at Webster Hall on May 18 & 19 as part of the Anti-Flag 20th Anniversary celebration.

Full of Hell

Eager to shake off the post-tryptophan Thanksgiving blues, folks came out in droves to Acheron on Saturday (11/24) to catch the Gaza / Code Orange Kids / Full of Hell trek that also featured an appearance from locals Old Wounds. Pictures and video from the chaotic Brooklyn show is below.

Left for Dead

In the wake of the sell-out of A389 2013 in Baltimore, the label has expanded the two-day fest into a full extended weekend! A389 Anniversary will kickoff with a pre-fest show at Ottobar on 1/17/13 featuring Integrity, Withdrawal, Vilipend and Dead Gods , then come to a close with a Sunday matinee on 1/20/13 at Charm City Art Space with Left for Dead, Iron Reagan, God's America and Eddie Brock.

In addition to the previously discussed Friday/Saturday shows at Ottobar, Saturday (1/19) will now feature a matinee at Sidebar with Despise You, Gehenna, Dead in The Dirt, Ancient Shores and WarXGames AND an afterparty with Nothing (who recently toured). None of the newly announced shows will have advanced ticketing; you can only buy them at the door. Full show details are below.

Catharsis has only one show during A389 festival, so what does that mean? Could a tour be in the works?

In other A389 news, the label will release Devoid of Everything, which collects Left for Dead's entire 1996-97 studio output remixed from the original 1/4" multi-track reels. Check out the art above and you can stream a track below. Left for Dead members went on to play in bands like Cursed, Haymaker, Pick Your Side, Burning Love, and many many more. This rare one-time reunion (I was assured!) is not to be missed. Check out some thoughts on the reunion via Chris Colohan here.

Meanwhile, Full of Hell, who plays the Friday show of the fest, is on tour with Gaza now and will play Acheron on 11/24 with Code Orange Kids (tickets).

If you're wondering who Iron Reagan is, the band is prepping to release their 20-track debut Worse Than Dead via A389 in 2013. The band features half of Municipal Waste and members of Darkest Hour and you can stream their demo below alongside details of the A389 festivities.

Gaza at Saint Vitus, June 2012 (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
Gaza

Thanksgiving will be here soon, but don't forget some of the great shows that will go on during the days that follow the holiday! A few unmissable ones include Gaza, Code Orange Kids, Full of Hell, and Old Wounds at Acheron on 11/24 (tickets) and the Festival of the Unknown at Public Assembly. Though the lineup of the latter has yet to be revealed, I have on good authority that it will be well worth attending. Tickets are on sale.

Converge, who recently played Highline Ballroom (review), will headline the Decibel 100th issue Anniversary show in Philadelphia at Union Transfer on 1/19 (tickets). The band will be joined by Pig Destroyer, Repulsion, Municipal Waste, Tombs and Evoken. Check out the show flyer below.

Code Orange Kids at Acheron, April 2012 (more by Rebecca Reed)
Code Orange Kids

Code Orange Kids have spent a lot of time on the road in 2012, but the Pittsburgh hardcore/grind quartet managed to make time in the studio too, as the'll soon release Love Is Love // Return To Dust, the band's new Kurt-Ballou-produced LP due via Deathwish Inc on November 20. In all of their recent appearances (including our own SXSW day party), COK have shown tons of promise as a live band and Love mirrors those efforts. It's clear that the band grew up with Converge, but more importantly, Converge's sense of freedom to push boundaries. This is a young band, which makes Love Is Love // Return To Dust all the more compelling to listen to. Stream it in full below.

Code Orange Kids are teaming with another promising batch of young'ns, Full of Hell, as part of a string of dates with Gaza. The shows include an NYC stop at Acheron on 11/24. Tickets are still available.

Stream all of the band's LP and check out their new video for "Flowermouth (The Leech)" below.

Converge at MHoW (more by Johnathan McPhail)
Converge

As previously mentioned, Old Man Gloom (mem. Converge and Isis) have expanded their East Coast tour that will culminate at a show at Europa with The Austerity Program and Psychic Limb.

Converge frontman Jacob Bannon has announced plans to release a split under the moniker Wear Your Wounds with Revelator (Ben Chisholm of Chelsea Wolfe's backing band) on the other side.

We've already mentioned how Converge has been added to a monumental show with Rorschach and Xaddax (who are throwing a record release show on Tuesday at DBA).

It might be cause of today's status as an unofficial holiday of sorts, but there are a hefty amount of shows going on in the next few days... one bigger show that has seemingly flown under the radar is sweep-picking death-metal lunatics Origin with Cattle Decapitation, Decrepit Birth, Aborted, Rings of Saturn, Battlecross, Face of Ruin at Europa on April 24th. Tickets are still available, OR you can try and win a pair. Details are below. The show is part of a larger tour for the band and dates are also below.

On their way to Chaos in Tejas, The Mob (UK) will stop into Brooklyn to play Death By Audio on May 29th. The UK anarcho-punk band will be joined by Sickoids, Nomad, and Anasazi at the venue, and it'll set you back $10 at the door.

Speaking of release parties, Levil Uniform, the skater/extreme music zine, will be throwing a shownext friday at the Grand Victory for their fifteenth issue with local crew Syphilitic Lust and others playing through out the night. That same night, the great Hank Wood & The Hammerheads will bless Don Pedro's.. details are below.

Obnoxiously fun punk band Beer & Cable will officially christen the recently relaunched Acheron on May 5th as part of a show with The Regressives, Agitator, ZTs and Trepanning.

Some interesting additions to some May shows also happened this week. Meek Is Murder was tacked onto the coming Tournament show at Acheron on 5/4, while the supporting bill for the previously discussed Power Trip bill was fleshed out to include Crushed and Brain Slug.

More suggested shows, a stream of the new Rwake 7" (which only be available at their merch booth for Maryland Deathfest X, don't forget about their NYC show), a Code Orange Kids video, Homewrecker featuring Dylan Walker from Full of Hell, and a Black Breath video from their latest LP is below (don't forget about their NYC show). What did I miss?
