ATTALUS "Into The Sea" out June 2 on Facedown Records

The roster of Facedown records is really very varied covering different styles of modern heavy
hardcore, metal and alternative rock music.
They just annouced their latest signing being Raleigh, NC based ATTALUS who have teamed up with the label to release a 16-song concept album entitled "Into the Sea”.
Working with Mike Watts (As Cities Burn, As Tall As Lions) at Vudu Studio in Port Jefferson, NY, the band has been able to make this their most musically dynamic album to date.
The combo has been often compared to bands such as La Dispute, Thrice and Brand New.

Watch here the first music clip for the track "Sirens" off the forthcoming album

HUNDREDTH announce their new album "Free"

Myrtle Beach, SC's HUNDREDTH has officially announced their brand new, upcoming album "FREE", which will be
released June 16th, 2015 via Hopeless Records!

"Our goal with FREE was to combine all of the elements of Hundredth into one release without hindering progression,” states vocalist, Chad Johnson. “The outcome is by far our best release. We ventured out vocally, which truly elevated the sound of this record. These are some of the best songs we've ever written and this record is sonically superior to anything we've ever done.”

This week the band also debuts the official music video for “Unravel”, which can be seen here:

NO BRAIN NO SHAME tour, Malemute Kid, Dear Dust, Low Dérive and Onoda

by marcs77

I got to attend the third stop of the tour No Brain No Shame at Honky Tonky in Seregno, some kilometers away from Milano.
The bands playing tonight hail from different areas of Italy like Torino, Bologna, Roma and Milan with the band called ONODA actually hailing from no-city banding together guys from Bologna, Cesena and Palermo. The four bands are taking around their commune effort in the form of a 4-way split 12” vinyl entitled “No Brain, No Shame” and freshly released on No Reason records and Lonely Raven records.
As the friend Turi (Onoda's drummer) said, it's a pity the house is not full like it happened the night before in Torino; he goes “there are really lotta gigs going tonight in Milano”. But it actually seems always like the case in the city lotta events are being held on weekend nights (and there's actually not "that" reference place that draws the punk hardcore kids).
ONODA opens up around 11.00 pm
and despite the band being on an actual stage the singer makes clear that they are a hardcore punk band just jumping onto the floor and running in the pit as far off as the wire's mick allowed him to.

STEEL TREES Premiere 'Radiation Man' video with Gigwise

For most ambitious guitar bands starting out on the road, it would be hard to find a more iron-clad
seal of approval than a personal invitation from the legendary J Mascis to support Dinosaur Jr.

Well, that's exactly what happened to riff-laden South Yorkshire ex-pit village trio STEEL TREES who reveal their new video for 'Radiation Man' today after its premiere with Gigwise recently:
