EyeHateGod Gearing Up For Massive U.S. Touring

EyeHateGod will kick off a 39 date U.S. mega tour next month. The “Left To Starve” summer takeover will commence on August 1st, run through September 13th, and includes performances with Capitalist Casualties, Phobia, Primitive Man, Negative Approach, Antiseen, Cro-Mags, Pig Destroyer, The Obsessed, and Mountain Of Wizard on select dates.

The journey also marks frontman Mike IX Williams’ lengthiest tour since undergoing liver transplant surgery this past December. Comments IX Williams:

“This band, for better or worse, has endured a mind-numbing and brain-expanding thirty years of making some of the most criminally riff filled and abhorrent sounds ever heard on the planet earth. No middle ground; EyeHateGod is either wonderfully loved or instinctively hated. Predicting the future accidentally and preaching the end time message, see the band LIVE now before something else bad happens…”

Racetraitor Takes Aim At U.S. Presidential Election

At the precise time the U.S. seems to have put up the batshit signal, the radical rabble-rousers from Racetraitor return. Racetraitor is back to take aim at this crazy election cycle with “By The Time I Get To Pennsylvania,” the first new music the band has released in roughly seventeen years.

The Chicago agitators deliver a musical molotov cocktail with the same incendiary spirit as the band’s metal/hardcore punk missives last heard in the late nineties. The band’s first show in nearly twenty years is set for the International Day of Action Against Police Brutality, on October 22nd, where fellow nineties hardcore veterans Earthmover will join Racetraitorat the Cobra Lounge in Chicago.

“We had discussed playing a show or doing something else over the years, but nostalgia was never all that motivating, so the idea died,” explains drummer Andy Hurley. “But with everything happening in the past couple of years, from the way things heated up in Ferguson, Missouri, to the rise in xenophobia and bigotry reflected by the popularity of Donald Trump, making new music with Racetraitor felt important again. We needed to respond to this moment in history in our own way.”

Valkyrja Announces New Vocalist RSDX And Upcoming North American Shows

Swedish black metal cult Valkyrja has announced two pieces of momentous news: the full dates for a first North American tour alongside Finnish band Archgoat, and the addition of brand-new vocalist, RSDX. A statement from founding guitarist S.W. reads:

“We have worked together for over a decade. We moved in the shadows and set ablaze what is to us known as Valkyrja. A journey fed by the passion for the forbidden, towards a horizon yet unknown, a strive constantly distracted by worldly matters. A creation that exceeds any individual value.

“With grief, I hereby announce that the now-former vocalist A.L will no longer participate in Valkyrja as you know it. As his presence and our creations go beyond any outer circumstances, he will, though, always have his part. Despite that, nothing can stop the wild fire we once started. We have now prepared under the surface, and we are finally ready to reveal the news. We hereby welcome our new singer RSDX, who is willing to burn and feed the hungry flames with utter dedication!”

Following on from last full-length, “The Antagonist’s Fire,” Valkyrja is now prepared to spread the gospel across North America. As direct support to Archgoat, Valkyrja’s first North American tour will span March and early April and spread disease through 17 cities.

S.W. continues: “With hunger, we prepare a journey to territories yet untouched. Twelve years have passed since this constellation was born, and it is now time to hit USA and Canada. These will be the first appearances of Valkyrja in 2016. Come closer – embrace the flames of perdition.” The full list of confirmed dates/venues for ‘The Grand Luciferian March’ tour are as follows:

3/18/2016 – Philadelphia, PA @ Millcreek Tavern
