Following the release of Recreational Hate and Companion this year, Lemuria will set out on the road this fall on a US tour with support from Bethlehem Steel.

After this run, we'll be taking a break from touring for a while in order to focus on our personal lives. We are not, by any means, breaking up. Lemuria remains a big presence in all of our lives through this time, however we won't be playing anymore shows for the foreseeable future.

Against Me! frontwoman Laura Jane Grace has announced another project, Laura Jane Grace & the Devouring Mothers, who will release their debut this fall on Bloodshot Records.
I’ve been a longtime fan of Bloodshot and the artists they work with. Having spent the past year working on a record without knowing where its home was going to be, when I discovered that the Bloodshot offices were only a couple of blocks away from my apartment I went in and asked if they’d consider giving the songs a home. They were cool enough to hear me out and oblige. I couldn’t be more happy about the work we’re going to do together and sharing it with the world.
The Devouring Mothers are Laura Jane Grace, Atom Willard, and Marc Jacob Hudson. The group will go on tour this fall.

Seattle trio Slow Code have announced an extensive US tour, beginning at the end of this month and stetching into October.
The band released Wastelayer this past May on Glory Kid Ltd.
Thou, in this particular rendition, throw down great song thud after thud, right on the table, while permeating a delicate scent through their carefully constructed EP, Rhea Sylvia. Each song is a steamy dish, smelling like Tool, Starkweather, and Isis mishmashed together. The vocals have a Maynardish-Alice In Chains chest voice, a Starkweather scream, and a shimmering lead guitar tone. It’s slovenly administration of songs average around 4 minutes long, remarkable since music so bone-crushingly slow tends to overextend in length, if not only to establish ...
