Pink Avalanche streaming forthcoming album early via Brooklyn Vegan, tour starts this week


"Noise-pop with a distinctly Chicago sensibility." -- The Onion AV Club

"Playing like you mean it should never go out of style... Stark but inventive." -- Noisey

"12 tracks of wiry, knotty post-hardcore that fall somewhere between Slint and Unwound...There's no shortage of music like this, but Pink Avalanche do this kinda thing really well." -- Brooklyn Vegan


Chicago quartet Pink Avalanche are streaming their forthcoming third album ahead of release starting today via Brooklyn Vegan. Hear and share the full album HERE. (Direct Soundcloud.)

Pink Avalanche launch a handful of midwest and East Coast tour dates, starting with the album release party tomorrow, April 18th in Chicago. Please see all dates below. 

Pink Avalanche's third album, appropriately titled III, finds the band's sound evolving, with an even greater focus than before on texture, repetition and harmonic exploration. While their previous 2014 album The Luminous Heart of Nowhere hearkened to the driving, bold melodic rock of their midwestern 80s-90s indie rock brethren, III finds the lineup streamlined and their sound exploring more intimate and intricate structures. 

III will be available everywhere on LP via Past/Futures Records and download via File-13 Records on April 19th, 2019. Plans are to tour all regions of the US in support of the new album.

III is the Chicago-based band's first album as a trio. Founding bassist Pete Croke moved to Puerto Rico in 2018, and rather than bring in someone new, the band decided to remain a 3-piece, with guitarist Kortland Chase switching to bass.

Pink Avalanche began in 2011 when guitarist/vocalist Che Arthur (formerly of Atombombpocketknife) and drummer Adam Reach (The Poison Arrows) decided to rekindle a musical relationship that began in their native Alabama in the early 1990s and continued after the two relocated to Chicago in the mid-90s. The two began work on the first Pink Avalanche album Wraiths, during which time they asked Chase and Croke to join and complete the lineup.

Wraiths was released in 2013, followed by 2014's Luminous Heart of Nowhere. Medical and personal reasons kept the band's activity minimal in 2016 and 2017, but they were still sporadically working on music for their third album. Eventually the band, having reworked the new material after the lineup change, entered the studio in the fall of 2018 and emerged with III.

Garage-soul trio Woolly Bushmen drop hooky power-pop single from upcoming album, announce tour dates

"Kicks like a mule, grooves like vintage shambolic garage rock and kills with the in-your-face attitude of Jerry Lee Lewis. Ultimately, this trio takes listeners on a wild and thrilling ride, during which band and fan alike stand at the precipice of order and chaos, the very intersection that defines rock 'n' roll." -- PopMatters

"A unique blend of old-school rock ‘n’ roll and surf with a fiery garage rock spirit, with an intensity and raggedness in the vein of Reigning Sound or Black Lips." -- Treble


Garage soul trio The Woolly Bushmen share a new track from their forthcoming 3rd album today via Treble. Hear and share the hooky power-pop tune "Fine" HERE. (Direct YouTube.)

The Woolly Bushmen also announce US tour dates kicking off in May in support of the album. Please see dates below. 

PopMatters recently shared lead single "What Yer Doin' To Me" HERE. (Direct Soundcloud and YouTube.) Punk Rock Theory hosted "Goin' Out West" HERE. (Direct YouTube.)

Formed in early 2011 and based out of Winter Park, Florida, The Woolly Bushmen have managed to combine 1960's rock and roll with 1950's rockabilly and a dash of soul, forming their own unique genre of all original crowd-rocking songs. These young musicians have captured the respect and admiration of seasoned musicians, some icons in their own right, that are twice their age while grabbing every audience by the scruff of their necks and whipping them into a dance frenzy. Teenagers, middle-agers, old-agers, male, female, black, white, green, purple, The Woolly Bushmen tend to appeal to everyone without compromising their style and musical integrity...mass appeal without losing cult appeal...they do their thing and it works! Audience comments run from, "where did this band come from!?", "how did we not know about them before!?", "These guys have IT!", and very often, "the best band I've seen!"

A typical Woolly Bushmen show will see lead singer, Simon Palombi, switch from vintage Farfisa organ to guitar, whilst, Jacob Miller, switches from bass to guitar allowing the band to play two different sets in one, much to the surprise and delight of the audience! The songs of The Woolly Bushmen are based around catchy organ and guitar riffs with infectious choruses that sound straight out of the charts of the late 1950's and 1960's. These all original songs give you, the listener/audience, the sense that you've heard them before...only, you haven't unless you've seen The Woolly Bushmen or listened to Tampa, Orlando, St. Louis, and Philadelphia college/independent radio. The sole purpose of The Woolly Bushmen's music is to get people dancing...and it works every time!

Leave your angst at home, nothing heavy or moody here! One reviewer said, "It's like Buddy Holly fronting The Troggs." Or, "Jerry Lee Lewis on crack" that is the unusual and unique mix of 1950's and 1960's at its best.

Over the past seven years, The Woolly Bushmen have played many notable shows with iconic acts like, Southern Culture on the Skids, The Coathangers, The Black Lips, King Khan, Ty Segall, The Beat, The Fleshtones, Schizophonics, Gringo Star, and many more, as well as frequently being invited to play festivals. They currently do routine tours of Europe and the United States.

From the beginning, The Woolly Bushmen have rarely had to hustle for gigs...shortly after they emerged from their garage studio, they were and continue to be asked to play more gigs than they can handle. Both, The Orlando Weekly and The Orlando Music News have voted them Best New Band, Band of the Week, and Best Orlando Release of 2012...you name it. The Woolly Bushmen have repeatedly been invited to play live on multiple radio stations as well as having regular radio airplay.

In July 2011, The Woolly Bushmen released a demo EP entitled, "Here Cometh The Woolly Bushmen" on cassette tape and sold out in less than 2 months! The band's eponymously titled full length CD was released in July 2012 at a live show in Orlando that saw the parking lot filled with fans unable to get in to the packed club, yet, stayed on site because it was the place to be! The CD received great reviews and has sold thousands without any promotion other than gigs! The band's merchandise, t-shirts, bumper stickers and CD's are sold out as soon as a new run is produced. They released a well-received seven-inch record in April of 2013. All three releases have seen airplay on several radio stations on the east coast.

In 2015 The Woolly Bushmen released their first properly yet self-produced LP Sky Bosses on their self run label Chesterwick Records. The group recently released their latest LP Arduino on L.A.'s Pig Baby Records, produced by Rick Miller of Southern Culture On The Skids

The band's third full length, In Shambles will be available on LP, CD and download on May 10th, 2019 via Pig Baby Records. Pre-orders are available HERE

ZIG-ZAGS share "Killer of Killers" track from forthcoming album on RidingEasy Records, new tour dates


"Sounds like Kill ‘Em All-era Metallica meets Motorhead but with claustrophobic garage rock production. It’s a real ripper." -- Brooklyn Vegan

"A potent dose of galloping, cartoonishly vicious rock'n'roll -- material previously perfected by bands like Motörhead and Megadeth." -- Pitchfork

"Noisy, aggressive, and raucous music that careens between garage rock and heavy metal like an amusement-park ride." -- Stereogum



L.A. punk-metal trio Zig-Zags share another track today from their fourth album, and debut on RidingEasy Records, via CvltNation. Hear and share "Killer of Killers" HERE. (Direct YouTube.)

Zig-Zags play a couple of Southern California shows this weekend -- including the anticipated Psycho Smokeout Festival on 4/20 -- before kicking off European and UK dates throughout May. Please see complete dates below. 

Metal Injection recently launched "Fallout" HERE. (Direct YouTube, Bandcamp or Spotify.) And, Brooklyn Vegan hosted album opener "Punk Fucking Metal" HERE (Direct YouTube.)

"Everyone puts photos of Sid Vicious up on Instagram. The other night I watched D.O.A, the documentary about The Sex Pistols' first and only U.S. tour. In it, Sid's a mess, he and his annoying girlfriend. And they're the only ones who get interviewed! Maybe John Lydon and Steve Jones (not to mention the drummer) didn't want to participate. Maybe Nancy made Sid do it. But it whatever the case, I didn't wanna watch it. The rest of the band is crushing! They sound just like the record! As a musician in a touring band, I can't stand Sid Vicious. He's cartoon character with a Swastika shirt, nodding off while everyone else loads the gear. I don't care if it's punk -- you still gotta be able to play."  - J. Maheu, lead vocals and guitar for Zig Zags.

8 years, 7 singles, 3 albums, 3 bass players, 2 drummers and God knows how many shows later - Zig Zags has continually evolved, mutated, transitioned and transformed, rising again and again, like a phoenix emerging from the flame. 

The addition of the newest member of our triumvirate - multi-instrumentalist, designated bassist (and longtime Zig Zags sound engineer) Sean Hoffman - recalls those golden moments past, when destiny stepped in...like when Neil Peart joined Rush or Bob Rock teamed up with Metallica. 

In short -- the circle is now complete, the cornerstone has been set and the winged serpent rises --once again. 

Some say it's luck, but really, it's about patience. A band is like a relationship. You have to know when to push, and when to hold back. You gotta listen and you gotta learn. We look to the masters. Like Henry and Glenn, we've gone from drinking hooch to pumpin' iron. We quit smoking. Two of us are married, for chrissakes! After 2017's brutal European tour, which left us coughing blood and taking names, we sought out Lemmy's Doctor (Feel Good), who diagnosed us with,"Rock'n'roll Pneumonia".  Like Lemmy, we were pushing too hard. And if you push too hard you'll end up in an apartment above The Rainbow Room, playing video poker on Christmas Eve (which is also your birthday)...but that's another story. 

The thing is - we ain't dead yet. Every album we record, every song we write - has to be faster, harder and heavier - than the one before. And that's why this new record is all about upping the ante and raises the stakes, and why it marks the dawn of a new day...and a new era. 

This album, our first with RidingEasy, was written over the last year. It's reveals our longtime roots, our enduring love (all hail!) to the early punk of our hero(ines) Dead Moon and The Wipers (forever!) but friends, don't be misled...this is a METAL record - of the true blue, headbangin', riff-ridin', no-bullshit - kind. 

Listen here - it ain't easy to play guitar and sing at the same time! But the more you focus, the more you get your head in the game, the more you push (yourselves and each other), the better it all gets. And the songs, they thank you for it. They get tougher, wilder and more raw, the more you strip them down. 

They'll Never Take Us Alive will be available on LP, CD and download on May 10th, 2019 via RidingEasy Records. Pre-orders are available HERE

'Brown Acid' 8th series of rare 60s-70s pre-metal singles streaming in full early via Paste Magazine

"So rare that diehard fuzz junkies say you'd have a better chance of winning the lottery than finding a physical 45 rpm single by one of the bands featured on their latest installment." -- Dangerous Minds

"Will do for hard rock, proto-metal and heavy psych what Nuggets did for garage rock, and bring it to a wider audience of collectors and music fans." -- The Guardian

"Mining the surprising rich reserves of heavy rock and proto-metal from the ‘60s and ‘70s, these collections have been crucial to understanding the history of a subgenre of rock that had far deeper roots than most fans realize." -- Paste Magazine



The forthcoming eighth edition of the popular compilation series featuring long-lost vintage 60s-70s proto-metal and stoner rock singles, Brown Acid: The Eighth Trip is set for release, fittingly, on April 20th, 2019. Fans can hear & share the entire album early starting today, alongside an interview with the series curators via Paste Magazine HERE. (Direct YouTube.)

Brooklyn Vegan recently launched the heavy Elvis interpretation by Grump HERE. Ultimate Classic Rock shared "Not Far Off" by Luke & The Apostles HERE. And, the lead single "School Daze" by Attack was previously premiered via YouTube HERE.

The Brown Acid series is curated by L.A. label RidingEasy Records and retailer/label Permanent Records. 

About Brown Acid: The Eighth Trip:

This Trip comes straight at ya with an all out attack, quite literally. The residents of St. Clair Shores should consider themselves lucky to have been so close to the greatness of Attack!  “School Daze” kicks out the jams Detroit-style, but has enough flair and style to have our main man Jimi rolling over in his grave. Another prime example of why Detroit is known as Rock City!

Speaking of rock, White Rock will knock your stank-ass socks off with their 1972 burner “Please Don’t Run Away”. This 45 was privately released by this Houston-based band that reportedly played shows with Josefus, Stone Axe, and Purple Sun. And it was basically unknown until it surfaced at the Austin Record Convention in 2018!  The fact that there are still completely unknown records out there to be discovered never ceases to amaze us.

They don’t say “Don’t Mess With Texas” for nothin’! Riverside called Austin home way before anyone was worried about keeping it weird. This two-sider from 1974 rips from front to back. It’s also exclusively available here and is virtually unknown. Go ahead, try to look for it anywhere. Currently, there’s no proof anywhere online that it exists.

From our neighbor up north, we bring you Luke and the Apostles! Don’t be fooled by the name, this ain’t no Xian group, even though this 45 is of biblical proportions.The flip of this single “You Make Me High” is a Faces-esque ballad of the highest caliber that will move you to tears if you’re not careful with it, but “Not Far Off” isn’t about moving you emotionally; it’s about moving you physically. Fuck jam? We think so. The Doors and Elektra Records’ producer Paul Rothchild called the Luke and the Apostles LP the “greatest album [he] never got to make”. 

The lyrics to this 1977 single on Vacation Records are about as boneheaded as it gets. Hard rock songs from working class men about working hard and letting loose is a common theme in the Brown Acid realm, and “I Need My Music” by Mine Hill, New Jersey’s Tourists, is yet another great one to get you through the work week.  I think we can all agree: we need our music too...among other things!

Ohio strikes again. This time a bit later than the other Buckeye State singles we’ve comped, but no less bangin’! On the Chance record label, the Bartos Brothers Band is billed as Gambler, but post-release, the band covered at least some of the copies with stickers that corrected this.  There’s very little information about the Bartos Brothers Band online, and as of this writing, the release date is incorrect on Discogs and the Popsike hit very wrongly lists the genre as “Glam/Hair Metal” from the 1980s. We’re stoked to be compiling this single for the first time ever and to be setting the record straight.

And yet again, Ohio brings the thunder! We brought you the B-side of Inside Experience’s sole 45 back on the Third Trip and now we exhaust the band’s output by presenting their especially psychedelic cover of Cream's "Tales of Brave Ulysses”. The band pressed and sold out of 500 copies of this record back in 1968 thanks to some airplay on Detroit’s CKLW, but they never recorded again. However, Inside Experience’s lead guitarist and singer, Marty Soski, went on to play in Lance (as heard on the Fifth Trip) and two metal bands which you will be hearing sooner than later...

Karma, slightly better known as The Contents Are, released an LP and a 45 in 1967 and then followed up with their swan song “New Mexico” in 1969. The single was oddly released under Karma on the Onk Enterprizez label with “N.S.U.” as the B-side and on Rok Records as the flip to “Future Days” as The Contents Are. Apparently, Mercury Records bought the rights to the Rok 45 with the intention to release it nationally, but never actually got around to it. Their loss!

Obviously we don’t need to go into how much great music Memphis, Tennessee has brought us over the years, but Moloch doesn’t usually get mentioned when we’re talking about the “Home of the Blues” and the “Birthplace of Rock and Roll.” Maybe we should change that. Moloch played with The MC5 and The Stooges and recorded an LP in 1969 for the Stax subsidiary, Enterprise Records. Although the band made a great blues rock record, it sadly didn’t get the love it deserved and the band folded. Moloch guitarist, Lee Baker, reformed the band with a slightly different line-up and released this 45 in 1972 against great odds. It too was unfairly overlooked...until now.

While we’re still talking about Memphis, y’all ever heard of this guy, Elvis Presley? Apparently, he was kind of a big deal and popularized a song called “Heartbreak Hotel” back in 1956. That’s cool and all, but damn us if we don’t dig Grump’s 1969 take on the song a whole hell of a lot more than the King’s version. Maybe that’s sacrilege, but nothing’s sacred when it comes to Brown Acid.

About the Brown Acid series:

Some of the best thrills of the Internet music revolution is the ability to find extremely rare music with great ease. But even with such vast archives to draw from, quite a lot of great songs have gone undiscovered for nearly half a century -- particularly in genres that lacked hifalutin arty pretense. Previously, only the most extremely dedicated and passionate record collectors had the stamina and prowess to hunt down long forgotten wonders in dusty record bins -- often hoarding them in private collections, or selling at ridiculous collector's prices. Legendary compilations like NuggetsPebbles, ad nauseum, have exhausted the mines of early garage rock and proto-punk, keeping alive a large cross-section of underground ephemera. However, few have delved into and expertly archived the wealth of proto-metal, pre-stoner rock tracks collected on 
Brown Acid

Lance Barresi, co-owner of L.A./Chicago retailer Permanent Records has shown incredible persistence in tracking down a stellar collection of rare singles from the 60s and 70s for the growing compilation series. Partnered with Daniel Hall of RidingEasy Records, the two have assembled a selection of songs that's hard to believe have remained unheard for so long. 

"I essentially go through hell and high water just to find these records," Barresi says. "Once I find a record worthy of tracking, I begin the (sometimes) extremely arduous process of contacting the band members and encouraging them to take part. Daniel and I agree that licensing all the tracks we're using for
Brown Acid is best for everyone involved," rather than simply bootlegging the tracks. When all of the bands and labels haven't existed for 30-40 years or more, tracking down the creators gives all of these tunes a real second chance at success. 

"There's a long list of songs that we'd love to include," Barresi says. "But we just can't track the bands down. I like the idea that Brown Acid is getting so much attention, so people might reach out to us."


Brown Acid: The Eighth Trip will be available everywhere on LP, CD and download on April 20th, 2019 via RidingEasy Records. Pre-orders are available for digital (with immediate download of the first single) at Bandcamp, physical pre-orders at RidingEasy Records

THE WELL share new track via Metal Injection, launch extensive US tour on Friday


"Their most intimate, darkly personal record yet... Taking them out of the doom corner and giving it a raw, post-punk feel. "Raven" sounds like a Satanic, downtuned Steppenwolf, and frankly we can’t get enough." -- Kerrang!

"An intoxicating mix of stoner metal and occultist rock -- it’s dark n’ doomy, sure, but it’s also as catchy as fly paper coated in industrial strength glue." -- Metal Sucks


Austin trio The Well share a new track today from their forthcoming third album Death and Consolation via Metal Injection. Hear and share "This Is How The World Ends" HERE. (Direct YouTube.)

The Well kick off North American tour dates on Friday this week. Please see all dates below. 

Kerrang Magazine also recently launched lead single "Raven" HERE. (Direct YouTube.) Metal Sucks hosted the crushing album opener "Sabbah" HERE. (YouTube.)

Death and Consolation is without a doubt a weighty album title. And, The Well is among the heaviest heavy psych bands in existence. So when we say that there's even more darkness and intensity to the band's third album than previous efforts, take heed. It's a deep sea diving bell of enveloping heaviness and longing. 

"This one is a little more personal," says guitarist/vocalist Ian Graham. "2018 was a strange, dark year. A lot of change going on in my life, there was a lot of depression and coming out of it over the last year. I wanted to call this Death and Consolation, because in life that's a constant." 

While The Well continue to walk an intriguing line between authentic early 70s doom/heavy psych and frayed weirdness of dark folk - especially with their haunting unison male/female vocals - the new album also adds the stark vibe of post-punk acts like Joy Division and early The Cure. "I feel like this album is almost more gothic. We're big fans of post-punk," Graham says. There's also much less jamming, the songs are tight and concise. And, did we mention, heavy? The band tuned down a full step to C-standard tuning for this album, which gives the proceedings its monstrous sound.

Sonically, Death and Consolation picks up where The Well -- Graham, bassist/vocalist Lisa Alley and drummer Jason Sullivan -- left off with their widely heralded 2016 RidingEasy album Pagan Science. The band once again recorded with longtime producer/engineer Chico Jones at Estuary Studio in 2018, who has turned the knobs for all three of their albums (Jones engineered the band's debut album Samsara with producer Mark Deutrom [Melvins, Sunn0)))] in 2013.) Samsara, released late September 2014 was ranked the #1 debut album of 2014 by The Obelisk and Pagan Science among the Best of 2016 from the Doom Charts collective. Likewise, the band's intense -- some even say "possessed" -- live performances have earned them featured slots at Austin's Levitation Fest, as well as tours with Kadavar, All Them Witches, Black Tusk and more. 

"This album might be a little less produced, because I didn't want to push technical stuff as much," Graham says. "I'm so scared of getting too complicated when getting better at guitar. This is still kind of punk rock." 

Death and Consolation will be available on LP, CD and download on April 26th, 2019 via RidingEasy Records. Pre-orders are available HERE
