classhole-screen shot

New Orleans-based hardcore punk miscreants, CLASSHOLE, featuring within its ranks an assorted cast of amplification abusers from the likes of Eyehategod, Hawg Jaw, Outlaw Order, The Mystick Krewe Of Clearlight, Mountain Of Wizard, Mangina, Tirefire, haarp, and more, will take to the streets next month on a short stretch of live demolitions. Set to commence June 23rd and run through June 30th, the eight-date rampage will crumble stages in Mobile, Spartanburg, Washington, DC, Baltimore, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Cleveland, and Memphis.

CLASSHOLE:
6/23/2016 The Blind Mule – Mobile, AL
6/24/2016 Ground Zero – Spartanburg, SC
6/25/2016 The Pinch – Washington, DC
6/26/2016 The Depot – Baltimore, MD
6/27/2016 Acheron – Brooklyn, NY
6/28/2016 Kung Fu Necktie – Philadelphia, PA
6/29/2016 Now That’s Class – Cleveland, OH
6/30/2016 Hi Tone – Memphis, TN

CLASSHOLE released their self-titled debut via The Compound Recs in conjunction with band’s own Terror Cult imprint in January. Already issued in a limited vinyl run via Terror Cult, the CD edition comes as a four-panel digipak featuring an alternate layout and lyric liner, plus bonus video footage of the band performing live in NOLA.

Boasts Noisey of the fifteen-track bruiser, “the tunes they churn out here are full-fledged, fast, dark, and nasty… with a murderous groove and a vocalist more used to spitting black metal brimstone than dopesick bile.” Rock Shock Pop concurs, celebrating a half-hour of, “pure, unadulterated anger.” The Examiner gushes, “From start to finish, the material on CLASSHOLE’s self-titled debut is loud, noisy hardcore punk music, sick, dirty, anarchic, caustic.” Nine Circles hails, “…fifteen tracks of angry, fast-paced punk laced with old-school hardcore breakdowns… There is no poetry, no pomp and certainly no circumstance. Merely an album of raw anthems replete with sing-along aspects and curb stomping brutality. The revolution is now and the soundtrack to the black bandana faced throwing of molotov cocktails will be CLASSHOLE.” Razorcake notes, “…influences range from early hardcore to later powerviolence, with not a single dud song to speak of. Plus, how can you not love a band named CLASSHOLE? Highly recommended.” Adds The Sludgelord, “The entire album sounds like the derailment of a freight train coming through a Republican party parade.”

Classhole is out NOW via The Compound Recs. For physical orders point your browser to THIS LOCATION. Desirers of the digitals, go HERE.

GRIDFAILURE: Cvlt Nation Premieres “Self-Exile” As Ensuring The Bloodline Ends Here Release Looms

Gridfailure Polaroid 2016-7

As torturous new experimental outfit, GRIDFAILURE, prepares for its Ensuring The Bloodline Ends Here for release on Friday the 13th, Cvlt Nation has issued the record’s “Self-Exile” for mutual consumption.

A soundtrack to which the listener may feel driven to podcast their own snuff film live, or explore creative surgery tactics on unsuspecting neighbors, Ensuring The Bloodline Ends Here is a curious mutant; an unforeseen entity which was only conceived three months ago. The sole creator of these atrocities generated the GRIDFAILURE classification to embody the Frankensteinian, musical experimentation taking place in random sessions. When these trials went very wrong, instead of burying and denying the project immediately, the confused architect dove headlong into the abyss, creating the perplexing, exploratory attack on the senses, Ensuring The Bloodline Ends Here.

Cvlt Nation has premiered GRIDFAILURE’s “Self-Exile,” noting, “Deep underground exists forgotten cities that have become a graveyard for a past that is only alive in our nightmares. GRIDFAILURE is a noise artist who creates morbid soundscapes that can act as a guide into the unknown places that imagination might not want to go.” Listen now at THIS LOCATION.

Also hear the track “Apparitions Revenge” at No Clean Singing RIGHT HERE.

Ensuring The Bloodline Ends Here will see release on eco-wallet CD and digital via the Earsplit label faction, The Compound Recs, Friday, May 13th. Preordered physical copies receive free GRIDFAILURE paraphernalia HERE, and digital preorders include an instant download of the track “Apparitions Revenge” HERE.

GRIDFAILURE‘s  Ensuring The Bloodline Ends Here bears eight movements performed, recorded, and produced entirely by David Brenner (Theologian, ex-Heidnik), who misuses a variety of guitars, basses, violins, harmonica, keyboards, electronics, chimes, drums, and elements of incineration, physical ailments, weather systems, faunae, and other auditory unpredictability. Layers of unorthodox instrumentation wrought with unhinged waves of vocal exploration and punishing rants formulate a biomechanical mistake neither man or nature want to claim.

GRIDFAILURE will continue to unfold, expand, and deteriorate upon the public in the coming months with the infusion of additional performers, through collaborative recordings, and more, with new material and live inflictions being devised for the coming months.

GRIDFAILURE: Demoralizing New Outfit Completes Debut Album For May Release Via The Compound Recs; Track Streaming At No Clean Singing

Gridfailure Polaroid 2016-3

GRIDFAILURE is the unforeseen, disharmonic outcome of an experiment that rapidly spiraled out of control in very recent weeks. Barely two months old, the solo outfit has completed a full-length album set for release in May via The Compound Recs, and today sheds the track “Apparitions Revenge” from the demoralizing effort through No Clean Singing.

The genesis of GRIDFAILURE unexpectedly took place in February of 2016 when solitary member David Brenner (Theologian, ex-Heidnik, Vise Massacre, etc.) began to conduct disturbing Frankensteinian experimentation on material collected from various solo recording sessions over several months prior. With no forethought plan as to what these sessions were to become, while layering these disturbing and off-kilter recordings, the mutated pieces began cannibalizing each other in an uncontrollable downfall; instead of ending the experiment under acres of hard earth immediately, the confused creator dove headlong into the abyss.

The debut GRIDFAILURE recordings have converged into a perplexing, exploratory attack on the senses, dubbed Ensuring The Bloodline Ends Here, which bears eight movements incepted, performed, recorded, produced, and packaged by Brenner. Ensuring The Bloodline Ends Here incorporates the abuse of electric and acoustic guitar/bass, violins, harmonica, keyboards, electronics, chimes, drums, bongos, den-den daiko, chains, bells, and more, in addition to the infusion of other components not limited to incineration, bizarre weather systems, tools, and mammals. Layers of unorthodox instrumentation ethereally infested by unhinged waves of unharnessed vocal exploration and punishing rants formulate a biomechanical mistake neither man or nature want to claim.

The chief of trusted portal No Clean Singing is streaming the fourth track from the record, citing, “Listening to ‘Apparitions Revenge’ is akin to parting a dimensional membrane and becoming enveloped by an otherworldly abysscape shrouded in cold mist, buffeted by the movement of dead things. Wisps of eerie, hypnotic, melodic tones loop beneath the swirling moans and shrieks of phantasms and the cries of lost souls, along with flickering spasms of electronics. The volume ebbs and flows as if that horde of ghostly entities were approaching and then retreating. The experience is both disturbing and trance-inducing. You wonder if you will be released from this ominous sphere of frigid spirits before you become one of them. It doesn’t feel right, but you want to stay… and you begin to puzzle over what will happen next.”

Stream GRIDFAILURE’s “Apparitions Revenge” at No Clean Singing RIGHT HERE.

Uncomfortable, unnerving, and paranoia-inducing, Ensuring The Bloodline Ends Here will see release on CD and digital via the in-house-owned Earsplit Compound label faction, The Compound Recs, Friday the 13th of May 2016.

Preordered copies of the eco-wallet CD receive free GRIDFAILURE paraphernalia HERE, and digital preorders include an instant download of “Apparitions Revenge” HERE.

GRIDFAILURE will continue to unfold, expand, and deteriorate upon the public in the coming months with the infusion of other performers, through collaborative releases, the mutation into a live entity and more.

CLASSHOLE: Debut From NOLA-Based Hardcore Punk Miscreants Streaming In Full At Noisey; Release Show Confirmed

NOLA-based hardcore punk miscreants, CLASSHOLE, who boast a colorful cast of ear bleeders from the likes of Eyehategod, Hawg Jaw, Outlaw Order, The Mystick Krewe Of Clearlight, Mountain Of Wizard, Mangina, Tirefire, haarp and more, released their self-titled debut via The Compound Recs in conjunction with band’s own Terror Cult imprint on January 1st. Already released in a limited vinyl run via Terror Cult, the CD edition comes as a four-panel digipak featuring an alternate layout and lyric liner, plus bonus video footage of the band performing live in NOLA.

In commemoration of its long-anticipated detonation, today Vice’s music portal, Noisey, is streaming the fifteen track bruiser in its rancorous entirety noting, “CLASSHOLE is a supergroup, sure, and most of its members have done time in sludge or progressive metal bands, but the tunes they churn out here are full-fledged, fast, dark, and nasty… with a murderous groove and a vocalist more used to spitting black metal brimstone than dopesick bile. The band’s first full-length record just dropped, and we’re devilishly delighted to be streaming it here on Noisey.”

Get down with your gnarly hardcore punk self, courtesy of Noisey, at THIS LOCATION.

In related news, CLASSHOLE will be playing a duel record release show with their thrashing comrades in Six Pack later this month with future onstage abrasions in their conspiring stages. Stay alert.

CLASSHOLE:
1/16/2016 Siberia – New Orleans, LA w/ Six Pack, Grave Ritual, Fat Stupid Ugly People, DJ Penetrol [info]

Classhole is out NOW via The Compound Recs. For physical orders point your browser to THIS LOCATION. Desirers of the digitals, go HERE.

“From start to finish, the material on CLASSHOLE‘s self-titled debut is loud, noisy hardcore punk music, sick, dirty, anarchic, caustic.” – The Examiner

“…fifteen tracks of angry, fast-paced punk laced with old school hardcore breakdowns… There is no poetry, no pomp and certainly no circumstance. Merely an album of raw anthems replete with sing-along aspects and curb stomping brutality. The revolution is now and the soundtrack to the black bandana faced throwing of molotov cocktails will be CLASSHOLE.” – Nine Circles

“…a half hour of pure, unadulterated anger…there’s a strong crossover element here, blending punk and hardcore with thrash metal and even doom…This album is fucking awesome…” — Rockshockpop.com

“…influences range from early hardcore to later powerviolence, with not a single dud song to speak of. Plus, how can you not love a band named CLASSHOLE? Highly recommended.” – Razorcake
