“what is this, besides way too much” – anonymous sound guy
New album “Gold Star” featuring such hits as “Crunch House Bathroom” blazing up the charts! Honestly not sure if they have more energy or musicality – it’s all “way too much!” https://spacecampct.bandcamp.com/album/gold-star
Sunn O))) “LifeMetal” just got released on CD and LP for Record Store Day!
Sunn O))) is coming to New Haven on the 26th (which is also the wide release date of the album) and we’ve partnered with Manic Presents / Premier concerts to do a listening event this coming Saturday, April 20th. At Noon (when we open) and again at 4:20PM (for the most obvious and ridiculous reason) we’ll listen to “LifeMetal” and all throughout the day we’ll be offering a discounted rate to the show. Four-packs of tickets will be $100 (all-in – no extra fees) and Two-packs of tickets for $60 (also no extra beyond). This is an in-store ticket deal only (not available online)! [Cash only for tickets please!]
We’ll also have posters, promo cards and a few stickers to give out courtesy of Southern Lord Records. Looking forward to drone with y’all!
Last year, we put out an album by Hex Inverter (along with our buds in Translation Loss). It’s great. We also put out a split tape with one side occupied by Nothing Israel. Dirt Devil is hoping to have a tape for Wednesday (we’re hoping too).
Death To False Metal Festival Preview Guest Post By Chip McCabe
This weekend at The Ballroom and Outer Space in Hamden, CT we will be celebrating the launch of what we can only hope becomes one of the premiere underground metal festivals in the land. The Death To False Metal Festival features 15 bands over two nights – Nine nationally recognized touring acts, and six of the best local heavy bands CT has to offer – for a pretty nominal fee ($15 each night, so only $2 per band if you go both nights).
