Capping off a trio of BV/IO shows for the weekend (Samothrace, Torche in the days prior), Ringworm headlined Acheron on Sunday, March 3 as part of a string of dates, joined by sets from Suburban Scum and Concrete Cross.
Meanwhile, congratulations to the Cleveland hardcore veterans and BV-SXSW alums on their signing to the venerable Relapse Records. So far details on the new LP remain scarce, but when that changes we'll let you know.
More pics, plus video, from Ringworm's Acheron show are below.

Last night (12/3), reunited Cali crew Strife hit St. Vitus, supported by Supertouch, NJ's Suburban Scum and Crushed. And if you went to the concert thinking that a humid Monday evening might be mellow, you'd soon discover how wrong that assessment was. And discovery probably came in the form of a ricocheting elbow or rogue two-step.
But it wasn't just about the pit. The crowd's enthusiasm overflowed from start to finish, even people hanging on the fringes were singing along during the show. When Strife took the stage, the room exploded with cheers, applause, and some unidentified guttural noises coming from the select few already circling around in anticipation.
Their set was peppered with new material and favorites from their first two LPs like "Through and Through", "Blistered", and "To An End". And, as if they were worried there wasn't enough mosh material in there, Strife closed with Black Flag's "Rise Above," ending the night with gusto... and several blows to the head.
More pictures and video from Saint Vitus are below.
Strife's Witness a Rebirth is out now. Check out some full video sets of Strife and Supertouch below.

Antidote at The Bell House, Feb 2010 (more by Tod Seelie)
While an album every 21 years is hardly "productive output," I'll nevertheless take it from veteran hardcore crew Antidote who are celebrating their thirty year anniversary with the release of No Peace in Our Time, a new LP. Due on November 13, the 10-song long-player features nine fresh offerings and an appearance from Roger Miret (Agnostic Front) on a cover of the Black Flag classic "Rise Above."
In the meantime, Antidote is preparing to play a few dates and. NYCers can look forward to Antidote at Bowery Electric on Dec 2 with The Mob, Citizens Arrest and Urban Waste. Ticketing info is on the way and tour dates are below.
In keeping with legacies in hardcore, H2O will celebrate the 15th anniversary and re-release of fan favorite Thicker Than Water with a show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on December 27 that has them playing the LP in its entirety. Tickets are on sale, "special guests" are still TBA.
In more modern hardcore news The Morgan (250 Varet St in Brooklyn) in is holding a trio of hardcore shows at its space in the coming weeks.

Youth of Today @ Acheron
Formerly of New Haven, Connecticut, [Revelation Records] is now based in Huntington Beach, California. It was founded in 1987 by owner Jordan Cooper, along with Ray Cappo of Youth of Today, with the sole intent of producing the Warzone Lower East Side Crew 7". Within the year, they put out two more releases and a limited 4th pressing of Youth of Today's Can't Close My Eyes 7", which had been originally released on Positive Force Records, just for the two of them to trade for vintage G.I.Joes and other action figures. In the first three years, the label put out 23 releases and pressed approximately 50,000 records, and it has continued to release an average of 7-8 albums a year.Revelation released a few records since then, most recently the Mouthpiece retrospective Can't Kill What's Inside: The Complete Discography. The label will celebrate its 25th anniversary with a trio of shows at Glasshouse in Pomona, CA in June, featuring Youth Of Today, Gorilla Biscuits, Underdog, No For An Answer and Statue, with "more Rev alumni to be announced." Despite the fact that Revelation was formed on the East Coast and a good number of the participating bands are too, so far it doesnt look like the celebration will be bi-coastal. We'll let you know if that changes though. Meanwhile, tickets go on sale March 1st for Gorilla Biscuits with Youth of Today on 6/8 and 6/9 (No For An Answer is also on 6/9), and Gorilla Biscuits with Underdog & Statue on 6/10.
Cappo left the business in 1988, to focus on his band Shelter and to start his own label Equal Vision Records (which he later sold to Youth Of Today roadie, former Revelation employee and friend, Steve Reddy), though his albums were still released by Revelation after that, and he also operated Supersoul Records.
The label put out several definitive hardcore and metalcore records in the late 1990s and early 2000s, with notable releases coming from Damnation A.D., Will Haven, Shai Hulud, Curl Up and Die, and Himsa. However, by the mid-2000s, Revelation Records had seemingly fallen by the wayside, with very few releases between 2004 and 2006.
In related news, Breakdown, who was on the Revelation compilation New York City Hardcore: The Way It Is (with Youth of Today, Bold, Gorilla Biscuits, Warzone and others) will play Chaos in Tejas with their 87 demo lineup (their first show like that in 25 years). Also no NYC shows for them at the moment.
Meanwhile, The Last Stand open up for Madball, Maximum Penalty, Dead End Path, and Suburban Scum TONIGHT (1/20) at Gramercy Theater. Tickets are still available.
The Last Stand supported Youth of Today and Mouthpiece when the pair played a surprise show at Acheron in 2011. A set of belated pictures from Acheron are in this post, along with the Pomona show flyers. More below...

The Rival Mob @ Acheron
The Rival Mob, Give, and Hoax teamed for the second of two NYC Airfix Kits/Young Offenders shows this past weekend, the latter's only East Coast dates. Pictures from the 11/5 Acheron show are in this post.

They'll also be in Baltimore on 1/7 at Sonar as part of a free show called Mass Movement with Trapped Under Ice, Next Step Up, Down To Nothing, Foundation, Backtrack, Mindset, Suburban Scum, and many others. RSVP for that show.
Sheer Terror were supposed to play a special matinee record release show at Bowery Electric in NYC on August 28th with special guests Supertouch and Suburban Scum, but Irene got in the way. The makeup date, with the same lineup, is today, 9/11/11. The 2pm show is all ages, and the 200 cap room will most likely fill-up quickly. Flyer below...
