Powerviolence vets Suppression touring, playing one of the final Acheron shows
Veteran grindcore/powerviolence outfit Suppression have just kicked off a tour. For those unfamiliar, vocalist and bassist Jason Hodges has his hands in a lot of projects, as the head of Chaotic Noise records, as a member of several other bands like MUTWAWA, Japanese Torture Comedy Hour and Brown Piss, and as a frequent Agoraphobic Nosebleed collaborator. But Suppression is ground zero for Hodges, and they are often considered a foundational grind act. And, as a Richmond-based grind outfit, they have had a lot of overlap with unofficial grindcore overlord Scott Hull. They released new music this year in the form of a split with Energumo, which you can stream below.
All dates listed, along with that new split, below.
