Iron Age

With a maladjusted hardcore assault that's part galloping Motorhead and Clevo Hardcore's Ringworm but with the strength of High On Fire, Iron Age have announced that their new album will be released by Tee Pee Records. The Sleeping Eye, which was completed late last year, is currently available on 2LP (in limited numbers) via Cyclopean Records, but look for Tee Pee to release the CD and LP on August 4th. In the meantime, check out "Dispossessed" from the album available for download above!

Iron Age's last release, The Way Is Narrow 7" has just been repressed by Painkiller Records. Pick that up here, and dig on the title track (another version appears on The Sleeping Eye) also downloadable above.

Iron Age, along with many others involved in Chaos In Tejas next weekend, will be playing other dates before and after the show. Look for Iron age to join hardcore faves Sex/Vid and Mind Eraser on a short Northeastern tour that includes two NYC shows in one day, June 6th... Cake Shop early and Death By Audio late.

Alex Hughes, guitarist for Iron Age and ex-member of Insect Warfare, will also be busy with his other projects in the coming months. Look for Hatred Surge and fellow Texans Mammoth Grinder (who we profiled here) to tour the east coast as part of a cam-pain through NYC on July 17th at The Charleston with Defeatist (mems Anodyne) and Disnihil.

I caught Iron Age and Hatred Surge in their hometown of Austin during SXSW. All tour dates are below...
