Superjoint Gearing Up For U.S. Headline Tour Dates

The third leg of Superjoint’s U.S. live invasion will begin on September 22nd in New Orleans, Louisiana. The band will pillage through over two-dozen venues across the country including a stop at this year’s edition of Rock ‘N’ Shock in Worcester, Massachusetts, the trek coming to a close on October 20th in Orlando, Florida.

Superjoint will be joined by DevilDriver with additional support provided by Housecore labelmates Child Bite and King Parrot as well as Cane Hill. Superjoint frontman Philip H. Anselmo comments:

“Do your pushups, take your vitamins, and start some light jogging now, because this is gonna be a hell-of-a-shitload of shows this fall. Olde School rules only. Leave your fashion statement at home or at the door. Individuals unite for one night only at a place near you, and then disperse like wildfire to dry pages. Bring it on, sisters and brothers. Always championing the underdogs of this world and The Underground since 1988! Yours truly, PHA.”

Auras Streams New Song “Infinite Influence”

Canadian progressive metal band Auras has released a new track titled “Infinite Influence” from the group’s new LP “Heliospectrum” that is due out later this month.

“We wanted to tell a story with Infinite Influence using an ascending rhythmic arrangement that maneuvers into different dimensions paired with equal movements in melody,” says drummer Nathan Bulla. “The inclusion of a guest guitar solo from our good friend Aaron Marshall attempts to pull the listener in at a pinnacle part in the journey only to be supervened in a destructive conclusion which returns to the initial theme, bringing an air of the darker ‘Crestfallen’ EP sound back into play.

“As for our upcoming tour with Toothgrinder, we are thrilled to be supporting the release of Heliospectrum with a band that shares a similar vision for relentless movement and organized recklessness, and can’t wait to bring the lively energy of these songs to stage!”
