Oakland, California trio Nervous announces new EP “Duration and Delusion” is coming October 23 on Twelve Gauge Records and Turbulent Records.

Frontman Jake Spek comments on the record: “It’s about our understanding of time and how it controls us. How our understanding of it shapes how we approach everything. Time as a power structure and a tool used in the reproduction of capital. The limitations imposed by structures we ourselves have created and abide by. The police. The state. Capitalism. People taking the streets. And weed, of course. Kill the cop in your head.”

Obliterations Reveals “Poison Everything” Album Details

Southern Lord today dispatches the full details for “Poison Everything,” the debut full-length from Southern California’s unhinged punk/hardcore outfit, Obliterations.

Comprised of current and ex-members of Black Mountain, Saviours, and Night Horse, Obliterations delivers a blazing blend of Poison Idea, Discharge, and Black Flag, set to a live show that willfully incites and encourages one’s aggressive tendencies to shine.

A day after returning from the Southwest U.S. tour in March, the band recorded with producer Chris Owens (Lords, Coliseum, Young Widows) at Dave Grohl’s Studio 606 in only three days. Mixed by Kurt Ballou (Converge, High On Fire, Black Breath) at God City Studio in Salem, Massachusetts, and mastered by Brad Boatright (Tragedy, Integrity, Sleep) at Audiosiege, the end result of “Poison Everything” is a thirteen-song, twenty-nine-minute record full of raw brutality.

“Poison Everything” will see worldwide release on Southern Lord in North America on October 28th and just one day earlier in Europe. The track listing is as follows:

1. Mind Ain’t Right
2. The One That Got Away
3. The Narcissist
4. Poison Everything
5. Black Out
6. Head Wound
7. Scapegoat
8. Shame
9. Normalized Decline
10. Ad Nauseam
11. Open Casket
12. The Middle Of The End
13. Crawl Inside

Obliterations Finishes Recording New Album

Following a signing announcement at the beginning of 2014 and subsequent touring, California’s Obliterations has finished tracking a debut LP for Southern Lord.

A day after returning from a Southwest U.S. tour in March, Obliterations recorded sixteen tracks with producer Chris Owens (Lords, Coliseum, Young Widows) at Dave Grohl’s Studio 606 in only three days.

The record taps into the groundwork the band laid on its two previous EPs, but sheds light on a much more expansive, dark, brutal and bleak sound. Mixing will take place throughout May, with a Fall 2014 release through Southern Lord in sight. The LP’s release will be joined by major US and European tour actions. More details on the impending full-length will be released in the coming months.

Check out live footage of the band in action at SXSW earlier this year below.
