Wildspeaker Posts New Song “Cinders”

Dallas-based blackened crust band Wildspeaker will release upcoming album, “Spreading Adder,” on June 23rd via Prosthetic Records. The blistering 11 track album offers a non-stop grind of driving riffs and thick, weighty atmosphere.

Thematically and lyrically, “Spreading Adder” focuses on the resilience of nature and downfall of human civilization. Check out new track “Cinders” below.

Vocalist Natalie Kahan says, “‘Cinders’ is about the anxiety and unease of changing states. Ultimately, we are still able to burn after the chaos around us cools. The song starts out pummeling fast then becomes punishing and slow. There are a lot of dark layers and tension to ‘Cinders’ that’ll make you clench your teeth.”

Wildspeaker consists of Kahan, guitarists Nelson Favela and Zak Pitts, bassist Garry Brents (Cara Neir), and drummer Ricky Rivera. Self-produced in Brents’ home studio, Spreading Adder will be released on LP, CD and all digital formats. Pre-orders are online here.

Gypsyhawk Announces Release Show For New Album "Revelry & Resilience"

Pasadena, CA’s Gypsyhawk will be celebrating the release of the “Reverly & Resilience” album with an in-store performance at Vacation Vinyl in Los Angeles, CA. The album release party/performance is free and will be held on August 24th at 8:00pm. Additionally, “The Great Food Truck Race”-winning Grill ‘Em All truck will be serving metal themed burgers before the show from 6:00pm-8:00pm. The following press release was also issued by Metal Blade:

“Revisiting the electrifying sounds of bullshit-free 70s rock, Gypsyhawk are a breath of fresh air compared to the endless onslaught of breakdown obsessed bands cluttering up heavy music. Marinating their wares in whiskey and weed, they hurl out blistering riffs and irresistible hooks and grooves, doing their damnedest to ensure that everyone at their shows is having as much fun as they are. With Revelry & Resilience, their second full-length and Metal Blade debut, this vibe bleeds from the speakers from start to finish, determinedly putting a smile on your face and compelling you to throw your hair around, no matter how much or how little you might have.”

“It’s music for girls to shake their asses to and dudes to bang their heads,” states vocalist/bassist Eric Harris. “It’s good-time rock and roll, and we don’t take ourselves too seriously, but at the same time we’re not one-dimensional ‘yeah-dude-let’s-party-all-the-fucking-time!’ guys, and I like to think there’s something for everyone in our music.”

“Reverly & Resilience” will be in stores on August 28th, 2012. Gypsyhawk will be performing as part of the Mayhem Festival Cruise alongside Lamb of God, Anthrax, Machine Head, Hatebreed, and label mates Battlecross, plus many more from December 7th – December 10th.
