We announced back in September that Invisible Oranges would be sponsoring the A389 10th Anniversary Bash down in Baltimore on January 17 & 18, featuring Infest, Haymaker, All Out War, Bloodlet, and Systems Overload-era Integrity, among others.

The initial lineup consisted of two shows at the Baltimore Soundstage. Since then, two side shows have been added to the festivities:

On Thursday, January 16, Ringworm will top a bill at Sidebar Tavern, along with Frightened Teeth, Pharaoh, Occultist, & Ampallang Infection.

On Saturday, January 18, there will be a matinee show at Sidebar, featuring Ilsa, Like Rats, Sick/Tired, and Sokushinbutsu.

You can buy whole-fest passes here; individual Baltimore Soundstage tix and Sidebar show tix are also on sale.

The whole lineup is below; you can stream a playlist of every band playing the fest (a perfect soundtrack for headwalking your way out of the office and into the weekend) below as well...

Seven Sisters of Sleep

Just when you thought it was safe, California's Seven Sisters of Sleep have returned with Opium Morals, the band's new LP due via A389 Records on March 20. Sludge, doom, hardcore and blasts all pepper this mammoth release, and you can stream two tracks from the LP below including "Orphans" which is making its debut here.

In addition, SSoS will share a Record Store Day split 7" with DC doom steamroller Ilsa. Details are sketchy thus far, but look for that alongside Ilsa's The Maggots Are Getting Hungry limited 12", a reissue of Ringworm's 1991 demo, and Like Rats' self-titled 7" on RSD13 (April 20). Also, Ilsa is scheduled to play the upcoming Damaged City Fest.

Speaking of Ringworm, just a quick a reminder that the band is on tour soon and hits NYC as part of a BV/IO production. Tickets are still available.

So far Seven Sisters of Sleep has only one tour date on the way, On February 7 in LA at Blue Star with Fuck The Facts, Final Draft, and Buried At Birth. Until more surface, prep for Opium Morals 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.
