Run Forever share “Separate Bedrooms”

Pittsburgh indie-rock band Run Forever has announced they’ll be releasing a new, self-titled album on October 9 via No Sleep Records. Today, the band has partnered with AVClub.com to reveal a new song called “Separate Bedrooms.” Fans can pre-order the record now at nslp.co/runforeverst.

Stream “Separate Bedrooms” now at AVClub.com: http://avc.lu/1h5pMjp

I tried writing this a lot of different ways to avoid saying who it’s about, but it’s about my mom,” says singer/guitarist Anthony Heubel. “She’ll probably cry if she ever reads this. It’s a song about the ups and downs of life and holding onto memories. It’s a sobering account of how we can sometimes find ourselves left in an unfair spot for no good reason, with such little time and energy left to turn things around. I am a product of that life, and Separate Bedrooms is an observation of how random and left to chance our outcomes or existences can feel.”

Heubel is no stranger to writing emotive and evocative songs that his audience can relate to. Over the last several years his band Run Forever has become well known for their gifted songwriting and alt-indie musical style that’s flourished on fan-favorite records like The Devil, And Death, And Me, A Few Good Things EP and several splits with bands like The Wild and Adventures.

Run Forever’s self-titled release was produced by HUM’s Matt Talbott and Kyle Gilbride (Waxahatchee), and features 11 songs, including the recently released single “Big Vacation.”

Caustic Casanova sign to Retro Futurist, share “Show Some Shame”

Caustic Casanova is a loud, heavy rock trio from Washington, DC. They’ve been tearing up stages and studios alike with their unique brand of eclectic, “absurdly muscled uber-psyche” since their inception on the campus of The College of William & Mary in 2005. In 2008, CC released their first ever full-length studio album, a seventy-two minute tour-de-force entitled Imminent Eminence. Four years later, they unleashed 2012’s critically acclaimed Someday You Will Be Proven Correct, produced by J. Robbins.

After the release of Someday You Will Be Proven Correct and a 2012 SXSW tour came the sudden departure of the group’s original guitarist, and a most critical juncture for the band – whether to continue as Caustic Casanova, start another project, or part ways altogether. After much deliberation, drummer/vocalist Stefanie Zaenker and bassist/lead vocalist Francis Beringer decided to honor the work they’d done over the years together by continuing Caustic Casanova.

Months of experimenting as a bass and drums two piece were followed by rounds of guitar player auditions, finally yielding the missing element to the new CC, longtime fan, friend and all-around six string wizard Andrew Yonki. Over the next two years CC embarked on two lengthy national tours and several shorter ones, and earned a much bigger following in DC. In 2014, the band signed to Kylesa-owned Retro Futurist Records after opening for the psych-metal veterans, and spent several weeks in the studio. Despite losing Stefanie for nearly half a year to severe wrist injuries from a life threatening accident (once again putting the very existence of the band in jeopardy) CC returned stronger, tighter and more motivated than ever to build sonic temples in which to worship feedback, massive riffs, delay pedals, bass fuzz, thunderous drum fills and soaring vocal melody.

The end product of these years of writing and recording through trial and tribulation is Caustic Casanova’s new album and Retro Futurist debut, Breaks, once again produced by J. Robbins. Breaks features seven unconventional and melodic heavy rock songs, none quite like the other, and covers a vast sonic territory from dark, driving post-punk to psychedelic post-metal, from heavy doom blues to epic space rock and everything in between. Breaks will be released on September 25, 2015. Look for Caustic Casanova on tour in the U.S. throughout August, October and November.

Forced Order ready Vanished Crusade for Revelation, tour (2015)

Forced Order’s Vanished Crusade is now playing in its torrential entirety through an early stream at Decibel Magazine, a week-and-a-half ahead of its street date through Revelation Records next Friday, August 7.

Churning with a 1990s grip on brutal metallic hardcore, their scorching divebomb leads heavy-chugging hooks and breakdowns form a lethal alloy romanticizing the works of Cleveland-heroes Integrity, Ringworm and In Cold Blood and the works of kingpins Cold As Life, Merauder, early Hatebreed and the like. While the members of the band also individually hail from Twitching Tongues, Disgrace, Soul Search, and others, with Forced Order their bleak views of the planet are delivered with a different, primal sense of impenetrable conviction. Jaw-clenching angst fuels every minute of the band’s debut LP, Vanished Crusade, with fourteen tracks packed full of infectious, punishing grooves enveloped in a haunting, ill-omened aura, produced by Taylor Young at The Pit (Nails, Xibalba, Twitching Tongues). Vanished Crusade is now playing in full courtesy of an early album stream at Decibel Magazine.

Furiously unload Forced Order’s Vanished Crusade through Decibel now at THIS LOCATION.

Revelation Records will issue Vanished Crusade on CD and digital platforms on August 7, with the vinyl version to follow in the Fall. Preorders for all physical formats- with 500 copies of the LP on Coke Bottle Clear and 1200 on Clear Gold – including merch bundles, are now available through RevHQ RIGHT HERE.

Having just taken part in This Is Hardcore in Philadelphia, on August 1st, the band will cross back to the East Coast with shows in Arizona, Oklahoma and Virginia between August 1 and 5 on their way to the start of The Life & Death Tour. Featuring headliners Bane and Turnstile, they will join Backtrack, Mizery and Heavy Chains for the entire twenty-six city tour of North America, with regional sets from Power Trip, Death Threat, Bitter End and Crown Of Thornz on select dates. The tour starts in Rochester, New York on August 6th and ends in Amityville, New York on August 31.

Meat Wave share “Delusion Moon”

Pegged by many as the must-hear album of the year, Chicago’s Meat Wave is set to release their new full-length Delusion Moon on September 18. Today, the band shares a frenetic new music video for the album’s title track, containing more energy in its tiny >2 minute package than the sun itself. No, seriously.

Later this fall, Meat Wave will join a very special TBA guest for a co-headlining tour down to The Fest in Gainesville, FL followed by a short headlining run in the UK. All tickets are on sale now.

Formed in 2011 by the trio of Chris Sutter (vocals/guitar), Joe Gac (bass) and Ryan Wizniak (drums), the three punk scene stalwarts came together and, just a year later, released its self-titled full-length debut. That first collection of songs was a master class in abrasive post-punk made to feel poppy, simultaneously referencing Hot Snakes, the disgruntled lyricism of Shellac and a little bit of The Jesus Lizard’s fire-spitting sneer just for good measure.
