What manner of beast is this that cannot be killed? Three times the satanic bands known as Rot Congress have returned from the dead, and three times they’ve been sent back to the depths from which they came, only to return stronger, bloodier, and more vile with each passing year.
We beg of you, do not enter the Skylark Lounge on Saturday, October 26th at 9pm!
Drink no magic potions, they will not protect you!!
WEAR NO CLEVER DISGUISES, THEY WILL FOOL NO DEMON!!!
Help Distant Correspondent celebrate the release of their excellent debut record at the Walnut Room tonight. The show also kicks off a two-week long East Coast tour, details below. Emily Gray, formerly of UK post-rock band Meanwhile Back in Communist Russia has made the transatlantic trip to join the band for the tour, as well as bass player Tyler Wilcox and singer Margaret Darling of Cincinnati's The Seedy Seeds.
Distant Correspondent's debut self-titled record is available today! The album, which Magnet Magazine compared to "Joy Division if Ian Curtis had been on anti-depressants" began as a songwriting collaboration between David Obuchowski (of Brooklyn metal band Goes Cube) and multi-instrumentalist Michael Lengel after Obuchowski moved to Colorado. The album also heavily features vocals from Edith Frost (Drag City Records) and spoken-word from Emily Gray, formerly of UK post-rock band Meanwhile Back in Communist Russia.
Kissing Party will be premiering a new single and video for the song "I Live With the Mystery" at their show Saturday night at the Hi-Dive. True to the song's title, the band won't give any more information about what the video is about, but I do know they worked with Denver-based video production duo Locker Partners. "I Live With the Mystery" will appear on Kissing Party's next album, their sixth, due in early 2014.
