There's no denying it - it's really here. After 2 rounds of Legal Karate and 2 Billion screenprints later, enough blood, sweat, and fears have been shed to produce a physical document of one bands' total chronic devotion. Available in only the finest audio distribution facilities in Minneapolis at the moment, SEAWHORES' Blunt Force To The Everything doesn't play friendly on the genre jungle gym. Cybernetic arcade industrial hardcore that ends on a beach of foamy drone, it's a complete loose-glove slap to the face of barely thrown together lo-fi lazy techno-hippies. They simply do not make them like this anymore. Where's the adventure these days? Where are the Indy's worshipping the Temple of Boom? It takes giant boulders chasing away the thieves to keep a treasure this tight and Seawhores have got 'em.
This LP will be available in Insound very soon; we'll keep you updated.

Motorcycle Maintenance

This is how we work on motorcycles at Death By Audio. Fuck stands.

Coin Under Tongue Releases "Dogma Sheen"

Here's your first chance to hear a sample from the new ear-shattering LP from Coin Under Tongue. The first single Dogma Sheen is a cage match between 80's Manchester and DBA-style feedback. This isn't your grandmother's Coin Under Tongue.

The new album Reception hits stores on August 24th. Coin Under Tongue has been described as "all the things you loved when you were first getting scared by music." (Britt Daniel), and "they fuck me so hard I feel like a man again." (Travis Johnson, Grooms).

Less Artists More Condos Show at DBA TONIGHT!

I can't think of a better way to spend this Friday night than the Less Artists More Condos show at Death By Audio. 7 bands for $10? That's less than $2 per band. Plus, it's Edan's birthday.

Both Grooms and Sisters are on the bill from DBA Records, as well as Snakes Say Hisss, Darlings, Tough Knuckles, Regal Degal, and DJ Mr. A*OK.

So unless you hate music and birthdays, you have no reason to miss this show.

Coin Under Tongue Slays Eddy Current

This past weekend at Death By Audio, we got a chance to see Eddy Current Suppression Ring play to a sold-out crowd of dirty, sweaty garage rockers. The four-piece from Melbourne, Australia plays a Stooges-inspired brand of punk that incorporates a few killer riffs and loud drums. It was a fun show to see live. Since we're only weeks away from the new Coin Under Tongue release "Reception," here's their tribute to Eddy Current from a recent show at Cake Shop:

One hundred and fifteen vinyl records have been pressed of the STARRING debut, Wife of God, and then inserted in sleeves that were produced by the best screeners in town, KAYROCK. There are so few of these we can't even give them to our friends because were dicks! But, they will be for sale on June 10th at Death By Audio because Starring will be raising money for their upcoming tour, which has been listed on the right side of this blog. It should also be noted that Michael from Starring's other band, Skeletons, will be playing that night. And if that's not enough, we're going to throw Grooms on top of the dogpile which should amount to one crazy mountain of a night. Also, here's a video that appeared today on Tiny Mix Tapes for the non-album track "I Met a Looky-Likey".
