“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!”


CT’s most notorious noise rockers yelling sardonically and perhaps satirically at you in particular. New album from them coming soon!

Chop Chop Chop Chop Chop Chop Chop

ALBUM RELEASE SHOW! New tape, “We Live as Ghosts,” on Redscroll Records out February 3rd. Noisegrind. Cybergrind. Fast, loud and abrasive. Getcherpull!


Powerviolence, hardcore thrashers also coming out with a new album this year (Daze Records).

Doom Beach

New Britain’s finest pair of loud sound makers. Heavy dirgin’. You check out “Copperhead” from last year? It rips!



SUNN O))) LifeMetal Listening Party / Ticket Deal

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!

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).
