It’s finally the week of the TovH sponsored Nerds Across the Northeast tour! I am very excited to go see Hadean on Wednesday in CT at some sketchy dive bar. I’ll be the guy in the Toilet shirt if any fellow nerds will be there.
Ne Obliviscaris are going on a North American tour with Black Crown Initiate and Starkill.
Thank You Scientist released the first single from their new album Stranger Heads Prevail, out July 29th. It’s decent, but I am hoping this is one of the more laid back songs on the album.
Red Fang, who have a new album coming this fall, are touring Europe with Torche. I imagine we will be able to see the smoke cloud from across the Atlantic.

I so very rarely care about remasters, but Pain of Salvation released a sample of their remix of Remedy Lane, which has always been one of my favorite albums despite it sounding like shit. I am excited for this one, out July 1st.
- Behemoth shared a little jam session on InstantGraham, presumably of them working on their newest album. It sounds…different (which gives credence to Nergal saying the next album would be post-punk influenced).
- Tech Death band Deceptionist released one more song before the June 17th release of their sophomore album.
- Meshuggah are releasing a monster box set of basically everything they have ever done, including 7 LPs and 3 EPs, and a bunch of other goodies. Pre-order now for only $250!
- I am still trying to figure out exactly what the Adult Swim Singles Series is, but VHÖL released a new song on it. Check it out here.
- The last day of Germany’s Rock am Ring festival was cancelled due to some crazy weather. Lightning hurt 80 people this year and also at least 33 people last year. It would seem that the gods do not like mixing radio rock with even the untvrest of metal.
- In spoopy news, HP Lovecraft’s The Lurking Fear is being read and recorded onto vinyl, with backing ambience by Industrial Death band Theologian. It’s a pretty neat project, but prints will be very limited, so check out a sample and pre-order it soon.
- Crowbar is parting ways with their bassist, according to this Fbook post.
