loridian punks Gouge Away will release their Deathwish debut, Burnt Sugar, this Friday. In anticipation, they’ve released the album’s third single “Hey Mercy” in conjunction with Kerrang!’s Underground Sounds of America. Check it out here.
San Francisco-based black metal weirdos Mamaleek are set to release Out of Time, their fifth full-length album and second for The Flenser. The band consists of two mysterious brothers who have kept entirely to themselves about the project. Just recently the duo made their first live appearance, and Out of Time can be considered as the final chapter of this era of anonymity. Out of Time was recorded by Jack Shirley at The Atomic Garden (Deafheaven, Bosse-de-Nage, Botanist, etc.). This is Mamaleek’s first double album and it is their most ambitious work to date.
Ft. Lauderdale’s Gouge Away will release their Deathwish debut, Burnt Sugar, on September 28th. The album, which was mixed and mastered by Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Oathbreaker) and produced by Jeremy Bolm (Touche Amore), dives into personal and political subject matter without getting the bends on its way back to the surface.
After releasing post-punk masterpiece The Demonstration and embarking on several massive tours last year, Drab Majesty is back, and on the road in North America now alongside Deafheaven and Uniform. Focusing on the aesthetics of cult ritual and the devastating power of music, Drab Majesty’s live show has become a phenomenon in itself. Fronted by interdimensional muse Deb Demure and anchored by Mona D on keyboard accompaniment, Drab Majesty infuses goth with pulsing synth and shimmery “tragic wave” flourishes.
