“Now Is Here” is the latest offering from the band New Idea Society. Founding members / decades-long friends Mike Law (Wild Arrows, EUCLID) and Stephen Brodsky (Mutoid Man, Cave In) have joined forces with longtime New Idea Society drummer Alan Cage (Quicksand) and guest bass collaborator Brian Cook (Russian Circles, Botch, SUMAC) to release two newly recorded songs on Sargent House.
Russian Circles have never been ones to sit still. As they prepare for a west coast co-headline tour with Sargent House label mate Chelsea Wolfe (as well as celebrate the two-year anniversary of their monumental LP Guidance), Russian Circles have announced a batch of solo shows surrounding the tour. These additional dates will bookend the Chelsea Wolfe run and Russian Circles’ time on the road spans about four weeks in total this September and October. Check out the full tour routing below.
On September 21st, SUMAC – the trio of Aaron Turner (ISIS, Old Man Gloom, Mamiffer), Nick Yacyshyn (Baptists, Erosion), and Brian Cook (Russian Circles) – will be releasing new album Love In Shadow. Earlier this year, SUMAC released their acclaimed collaborative effort with legendary Japanese artist Keiji Haino, American Dollar Bill – Keep Facing Sideways, You’re Too Hideous To Look At Face On.
Jaye Jayle, Evan Patterson’s Americana-noir project, has not only opened a new chapter for the Young Widows frontman—it’s blossomed into a universe all its own. The newest arc in the Jaye Jayle narrative has been revealed with the announcement of the band’s sophomore LP No Trail And Other Unholy Paths, set for release June 29th via Sargent House. The album’s first single— the smoky, hypnotic track “Ode To Betsy”— is streaming today via Paste Magazine (and directly via YouTube).
