Omni with Rebel Rebel, Odd Equals

Omni
Atlanta, GA trio Omni charged out of the gate in 2016, stunning everyone within earshot with their debut long-player, Deluxe, a dizzyingly refreshing amalgam of wiry post-punk jitters & a dash of zen cool. Multi-task, being released September 22nd via Trouble in Mind, is their latest offering & all signs point to the coveted goal of “next level.” As with Deluxe, Multi-task was recorded with friend & engineer Nathaniel Higgins at his studio as well as a remote cabin in the woods near Vienna, Georgia. “It gave a true peace/piece of mind away from the city” Frobos says, “We could work with no distractions or limitations at our own pace.”

Castle with Dude Cougar, Heretic Temple, Hyde Park

Castle
Thrash-inspired Doom Metaller's CASTLE released their second album "Blacklands" on September 11th on their new North American label PROSTHETIC RECORDS.

"Blacklands" – which was produced by Billy Anderson (Cathedral, Sleep, Neurosis) – was described by Metal Hammer UK as being "a tough alloy of purest classic metals — doom, thrash, epic and power — charged with arcane mysticism." The album artwork was done by Russian symbolist painter Denis Forkas Kostromitin. "Blacklands" is nominated for a 2013 Canadian Juno award in the "metal/hard music album of the year" category.

CASTLE were formed in 2009 and released their debut album "In Witch Order" via the German label Van Records (The Devil's Blood) in the spring of 2011. The album brought light to the newly formed band and gained them the title of Metal Hammer Norway's album of the year as well as Roadburn Festival's "Newcomer of the Year". Having just returned from a successful European tour alongside Intronaut in addition to appearances at Roadburn and Desertfest, CASTLE have announced a stretch of shows throughout the western U.S. With support from Demon Lung (Candlelight Records), the trio will make their way to and from the Doom in June festival in Las Vegas, NV on June 1. The band will then continue to tour throughout the summer including supporting Intronaut on select dates of their upcoming U.S. tour alongside label mates SCALE THE SUMMIT.

Sego with Uncle Reno, Super Young Adult

Sego
“U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.!” Not what one would expect to hear chanted vehemently from the members of an indie rock band in 2019… But Sego seems to get off on doing things one wouldn’t expect from an LA indie band today. Being proficient at their instruments instead of relying on computer tracks to play their new album Sego Sucks live, recording said album in a church in far away Canada in the winter, thus committing to the deliberate notion of an album more than an amalgamation of 'laptop studio' singles. And yes, chanting “USA, USA, USA” as the main reprise of a reflective tune about entitlement culture. One must ask why? Why take it there? Or one may not ask and instead bounce and bop their way through each energetic turn, just happy to have their blood pump a little faster than the “everything chill all the time” pace that we’ve all become accustomed to.

And therein lies the trick of Sego. It’s a gosh-damn choose your own adventure story of music for adrenaline huffers and introspective socio-philosophical types alike. Not that the two are mutually exclusive.

The Twilight Sad with Kathryn Joseph

The Twilight Sad –2018 tour biography

“If the world was a better place they would be playing to more people, and I think they can”

– Robert Smith, The Cure

From their unassuming origins as a group of school friends drawn together by a shared passion for music to the global touring force they have quietly become, The Twilight Sad’s ascent has been forged the old way with grit, graft and four exceptional studio albums. The Kilsyth group – based around the core duo of James Graham and Andy MacFarlane – seemed to emerge fully formed with their blindsiding 2007 debut Fourteen Autumns and Fifteen Winters but there has been an undeniable evolution throughout the critically acclaimed body of work they have since produced. 

“When we started this it wasn’t about anything other than making music that mattered to us,” James offers. “Four albums and countless tours later, our agenda is still to write something which is true, honest and exciting to ourselves, but we have also realised that what we’re doing matters to other people. When our music connects it can become as important to them as it is to us.”

The band’s course was altered by a new alliance with The Cure which began in earnest with Robert Smith’s stirring cover of ‘There’s a Girl in the Corner’ in 2015. Two emotionally charged groups, generations apart yet undeniably cut from similar cloth.
