Wear Your Wounds are currently recording a new album with engineer Kurt Ballou at God City Studios. This recording marks the first time the live lineup of the band; Jacob Bannon (Converge), Mike McKenzie (The Red Chord, Stomach Earth, Unraveller, etc), Adam McGrath (Cave In, Nomad Stones, etc), Sean Martin (Twitching Tongues, ex-Hatebreed, ex-Kid Cudi), and Chris Maggio (ex-Trap Them, ex-Sleigh Bells, etc) have properly written and recorded material together. Creative contributions from Ben Chisholm (Chelsea Wolfe, White Horse, etc), and Gared O’Donnell (Planes Mistaken for Stars, Hawks and Doves) are also expected. The new album is slated for an early/mid 2019 release on Deathwish with touring to follow.
Modern Life Is War have unveiled the second installment in their ongoing singles series titled Tribulation Worksongs. Featuring two tracks, “Revival Fires” and “Indianapolis Talking Blues,”Tribulation Worksongs: Volume 2 showcases two of the band’s most incensed and pensive songs yet.
Boston-based heavy music pioneers Converge have released a new four song E.P. titled Beautiful Ruin. Recording during The Dusk In Us sessions, this E.P. completes the release of all their recorded material from that time period. Each song on Beautiful Ruin is a staccato burst of emotion from Converge at their most raw; viciously precise yet alluringly out of control.
