Just a reminder that Sweden's Terrible Feelings are in town tonight playing Death by Audio with Death First, Plastic Cross and These Days. If you can't make tonight's show, the band will be back on the tail end of their US tour, playing Acheron on June 30. All tour dates are listed below.
Since we last wrote about them, Terrible Feelings released their new album, Shadows. While the songs are hook-laden and very catchy, you can feel the punk DNA in there. The band have made fans of JEFF the Brotherhood and Fucked Up on European tours and I am told they have a killer live show. You can download two tracks off the album and stream the whole record below via a Spotify widget.
Meanwhile, Terrible Feelings' Derranged Records labelmates White Lung are currently wrapping up a short stint out with Ceremony but will be in NYC on June 28 for a show at Tommy's Tavern with Nude Beach, Casanovas in Heat, California X. The Vancouver band make strident pedal-to-the-metal, punk-fueled rock with strong vocals from singer Mish Way. You can stream their album, Sorry, at the bottom of this post. All tour dates are listed below.

NYC hardcore favorites Crazy Spirit headlined a show at Tommy's Tavern on 4/13, joined by Cleveland's Bad Noids as well as Goosebumps and Mutant Genes. Here are some pictures from the show (none of Goosebumps or Mutant Genes though).
Next up for Crazy Spirit is an appearance at Acheron on 4/21, where the band will support the great White Lung on one of their two NYC dates on their East Coast tour.

Night Birds at Cake Shop (more by Keith Marlowe)
Brian of Night Birds has given us his ten coolest things in 2011, which includes shouts to Omegas, Career Suicide (mems of Fucked Up), Weird Al, and much more. Check that out below.
Night Birds play Tommy's Tavern TONIGHT (12/9) with Manipulation, Sickoids and Crazy Spirit, one of TWO NYC dates scheduled before the end of the year (the other with Citizens Arrest). The party kicks off at 8PM.
Brian Night Birds' year-end list is below.
Night Birds at Acheron (more by Keith Marlowe)
The New Brunswick band is scheduled to play a few dates in the coming weeks including TWO NYC shows. Night Birds will play Tommy's Tavern on 12/9 with Manipulation, Sickoids & Crazy Spirit while a little more than a week later (12/17) they'll hop on to the previously mentioned Citizen's Arrest/Mind Eraser show at ABC No Rio (a benefit for the venue).

Ash Borer @ the Acheron
Ash Borer headlined its second of two NYC dates on Saturday (7/16). One night after hitting Tommy's Tavern, they played Acheron with touring partners Ruin Lust, as well as dark ambient band ITHI and locals Anchorites. Last night in Providence at AS220 marked the conclusion of dates for Ash Borer / Ruin Lust, who each were touring with releases in tow (Ash Borer with a new LP/cassette discog, Ruin Lust with a new demo).
Epic and atmospheric, Ash Borer played a fantastic set with fill-in bassist Mike from Ruin Lust/Fell Voices, as evidenced in the video below (their entire set, courtesy of UNARTIG).
Support was similarly fantastic, with Ruin Lust ripping a set of atonal blackened death metal anchored by jawdropping drums by Mike, ITHI laying down dark textures, and Anchorites bringing the blackened crust. Ruin Lust has grown considerably since my first experience with them; this Brooklyn band is now a force to be watched.

Flourishing @ Public Assembly
Flourishing hasn't existed quite as long as Wetnurse, but Wetnurse/Flourishing guitarist Garett Bussanick has already cranked out a pair of Flourishing releases in as many years. The second release for the band he also sings for is due on August 2nd via The Path Less Traveled Records. The Sum Of All Fossils features eight tracks of atonal eclectic guitar wizardry that crosses barriers between grind, death metal, prog, and post-hardcore. Check out the lead track from the LP, "By Which We're Cemented", streaming below for the first time.
Flourishing will team up with Humanity Falls to play Port 41 in NYC on July 10th as part of a larger tour for Humanity Falls and their touring partners The Leviathan's Mandible. All tour dates are below along with a new Humanity Falls track and a stream of their 2010 LP Ordaining The Apocalypse.
Humanity Falls will link up with the the Ash Borer/Ruin Lust tour at The Meatlocker in NJ on 7/12. That's one day after Ash Borer play NYC for the first time at Tommy's Tavern (not at Semi-Legit as previously announced. the show was moved). July 16th at Acheron is still on, and with support from ITHI.
Back on 4/13 while Floor was blasting down the walls and Hawks were trying to keep their pants on at Music Hall of Williamsburg, The Ocean were playing with the always impressive East of The Wall and Flourishing at Public Assembly next door. A set of belated pictures from Public Assembly are in this post. They continue, along with album details, streams, and tour dates, below...
