Mares of Thrace
Mares of Thrace

If guitarist/vocalist Thérèse Lanz (left) looks a bit familiar to you, it might because of her recent stint as bassist for the mighty KEN Mode. That time has passed (they've moved on to include Andrew LaCour of Khann in her stead), but all the while Thérèse has been involved in her main gig Mares of Thrace.

Take the very deceiving (and almost twee) photo above with a grain of salt because the Canadian duo (guitar/drums) explore a nihilistic cocktail of noise-punk, caustic hardcore and bowel-rattling sludge on their latest LP for Sonic Unyon Metal, The Pilgrimage (due April 24th). Stream the new song "The Gallwasp" from that LP below..

The pair will haul out their amps and vitriol on a string of US dates that will include a stop at Saint Vitus on May 15th with support TBA. All tour dates are listed with thatsong stream and a full set of live video below... definitely worth a watch.

Meanwhile, KEN Mode will appear at the BV-BBG/Power of The Riff/Thrasher showcase at Scoot Inn on 3/16, part of a full day of shows at the Austin venue that also includes the BV/POTR show as part of the daytime Converse/Thrasher Deathmatch festivities.
