John Frum Releases “Memory Palace” Video

Enigmatic, cult metal collective John Frum just unveiled a video for new song “Memory Palace.” The song is found on the band’s upcoming, debut album, “A Stirring In The Noos,” which is set for release through Relapse Records on May 12th.

Pre-orders are online now right here. The band also comments: “‘Memory Palace’ is a journey into the ever changing and expanding void we find ourselves hurtling through, and a reflection on the fleeting knowledge one stands to gain within. It also speaks to the pitfalls of our god complex and the futility of enlightenment on any scale.”

The mysterious John Frum is the manifestation of four musical minds coalescing in a collective consciousness developed from time spent playing with The Dillinger Escape Plan, The Faceless, John Zorn, Cleric and many more elite projects. This unorthodox debut maneuvers through 40 minutes of darkly psychedelic and meticulously crafted death metal, acting as the backdrop of a bad trip. Fans can also see the band live:

April 14 – Philadelphia, PA – Shred Shed w/ Surgeon + Night Raids + Special Guest Headliner TBA
April 15 – New York, NY – St. Vitus w/ Imperial Triumphant + Special Guest Headliner TBA
April 16 – Baltimore, MD – Metro Gallery w/Cemetery Piss + Special Guest Headliner TBA

EyeHateGod Returning To The Stage After Mike IX Williams’ Liver Transplant

EyeHateGod frontman Mike IX Williams will make his triumphant return to the stage next month following a successful liver transplant this past December.

Williams, who hasn’t performed live in a year, will make his stage debut on April 14th at this year’s Berserker Fest in Pontiac, Michigan. From there, the band will hit Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Brooklyn, New York with future live encounters to be announced in the months to come.

4/14/2017 Berserker IV @ The Crofoot – Pontiac, MI
4/15/2017 First Unitarian Church – Philadelphia, PA
4/16/2017 Brooklyn Bazarre – Brooklyn, NY

Comments Williams in a recently statement posted to his YouCaring site: “Finally! This an update that’s totally loooong overdue, people. I apologize for the tardiness but I just started an entirely new beginning of an existence previously destined to be cut short by the ravages of a hard life lived.

“I’m back, mother fuckers! And I feel pretty amazing, although I have a very long way to go as far as being one thousand percent fully healed, but my doctors are completely stoked at my progress so far. This miracle of the modern medical process has literally bought me a second chance at living! Now on to the real stars of the show: YOU! My family, friends and fans: You truly stole my heart and made me aware that love really does exist in this current climate of hatred because of someone’s skin color, beliefs, or personal identity, you people came to the rescue like nobody’s business and we love you!

“To be honest, we still need you! Of major, ultra-special note is the New Orleans #IXLivesIXLives benefit gigs. I was unable to attend any of the shows because of doctors’ orders, but word is that the entire weekend was the ultimate example of mass friendship, hope and care for one another in a time of need. Many many thanks to everybody involved, me and my beautiful rock star of a wife Michelle, thank you from the bottoms of our filthy hearts! We were and still are, over-freaking-whelmed at the outpouring of support from all the wonderful humans out in this world, you maniacs have completely outdone yourselves…”
