Armand Hammer drops a post-album EP of fan-pleasing odds ‘n’ ends.
Some freakish, frenzied punk rock on this new Vulture shit EP, which you can stream via the widget above. If you love manic vocals and wild guitars compressed into brief musical blitzkriegs, then this is for you. Enjoy!
After changing its name earlier this month, Code Orange (formerly Code Orange Kids) announced it will be releasing its sophomore album in a couple of months. It’s called I Am King, and above you can watch the video of its savage title track. Backed by a caustic hardcore soundtrack, the visuals depict some poor guy getting the letters “TOTH” carved into his back. I don’t know what that’s all about, but it’s clear Code Orange isn’t fucking around. This being the intro to the album, it is looking as though I Am King will be every bit as heavy and ferocious as its predecessor, if not more. Glad to see Converge’s Kurt Ballou reprising his role as producer.
My Fictions is a loud rock four-piece from Lowell, Massachusetts apparently hellbent on pushing hardcore to its limit. They’ll be making their full-length studio debut next month with Stranger Songs. Above, you can check out the opening track “Mt. Misery,” which gives the illusion of a slow-burner with a tension-mounting intro before bursting into a bout of the band’s fast and furious hardcore magic. And below you can hear the thoroughly breakneck and angsty “Stubborn.” These guys sound manic! Looking forward to this LP dropping July 1 (via Topshelf Records).
