News Bits & Pieces

IRON CHIC SHARE ANOTHER ALBUM TRACK
Long Island punk band Iron Chic has released a new song entitled ‘A Headache With Pictures,‘ taken from their highly-anticipated new album ‘You Can’t Stay Here‘, out October 13th.

Written and recorded in guitarist Phil Douglas’ house, ‘You Can’t Stay Here‘ is the group’s first new album since 2013’s ‘The Constant One‘, and addresses the same big questions that have plagued the band from their outset: anxiety, mortality, life, death, what it all means, etc. But this record became so much more after the unexpected loss of guitarist Rob McAllister in January 2016. ‘You Can’t Stay Here‘ transformed into a sort of coping mechanism for the bandmates; some of the tracks had even been written with McAllister, compounding the shared pain of his absence.

Stream the new song below.

IVAN DRAGO RELEASE ‘THANKS FOR COMING OUT’
Sydney punk band Ivan Drago recently released their second album, ‘Thanks For Coming Out‘.

Rather than the usual ashes, Ivan Drago formed from the still raging fires of various Sydney bands, and have managed to coast by for a couple of years without having to put in a whole lot of effort. Where some bands might punch out 50 songs before breakfast, Ivan Drago are the band equivalent of waking up at 11am on a Wednesday, asking wearily “Where’s the fucking Berocca?”

They’ve shared stages with Anti Flag, A Wilhelm Scream, Frenzal Rhomb, The Flatliners, Pour Habit and countless local bands in their short time together.

Give the album a spin / purchase below.

EASY LIFE RELEASE NEW EP
Easy Life have announced and released their UNFD debut, ‘There Can’t Be This Much Water In The Sky‘ over the weekend – where they also appeared at the Yours and Owls festival.

A snapshot of small town living, Easy Life created a vivid collage of the anxieties and emotions of life in a regional coastal town in ‘There Can’t Be This Much Water In The Sky‘. Growing up in the idyllic surrounds of Shellharbour NSW is where Easy Life’s coming of age story begins, and the boys take us on a tour of their home in the video for ‘Light Me Up‘ which can be viewed below.

The band head out on tour at the end of the month with Endless Heights and Horror My Friend. Dates and venues can be sussed out [Here].

THE PEEP TEMPEL ADD LOCALS TO FINAL TOUR
The Peep Tempel will soon retreat into hiatus. Wrapping up this chapter is their recently announced, and quickly selling ‘Totality‘ tour.

Batpiss will join them on most dates with locals opening up stops along the way.

DIPLOID ALBUM PRE-ORDERS AVAILABLE
Melbourne’s Diploid return at the end of the month with ‘Everything Went Red‘, an all-out assault of sludge-ridden punk, doom-laden screamo, and blackened grind.

The new record shows just how much the band’s relentless touring, writing and rehearsing has paid off. On ‘Everything Went Red‘, influences from noise acts like The Body and Merzbow can be heard alongside a shift towards slower, grinding tempos of sludge and doom.

Thanks to production from Matt Faisandier (Whitehorse, Black Jesus), and mastering by Will Killingsworth of Orchid and Ampere, ‘Everything Went Red‘ is also the band’s heaviest sounding record to date.

It will be available on October 31st through Black Wire Records, Art As Catharsis, Cat Fight, and Hardcore For The Losers. Pre-order [Here].

The first single, ‘I Will Strike You Down‘, can be streamed below.
