The sixth (and quite possibly final) American Heritage album will be released by Solar Flare records in November. It's called 'Prolapse' (nice) and represents the best part of 20 years' worth of heinous, complicated racket-making.
French brutalists Cowards will be reissuing their debut LP (the excellent 'Shooting Blanks And Pills', which originally came out on Throatruiner) via Canuck label Secret Handshake in September. The band play filthy hardcore which draws from sludge and black metal. Check out their bandcamp page below to give it a listen and steel yourself for a new album in 2015.
SuperFi Records have just released the debut LP from grinding metal nogoodniks Beg. The band features members of the Afternoon Gentlemen and Art Of Burning Water, and some sort of horrific mid-way point between those two bands isn't too far from the mark. Check it out at the link below.
The second album from Thisclose is available to order now. I think they play d-beat or something? 14 tracks recorded at 16ohm Studios and housed in a gatefold sleeve. It may or may not feature a d-beatified version of the Eric Idle-penned sitcom theme tune with which it shares its title.
Two new blasts courtesy of Trabuc Records: the debut LP from Kurraka and a 12" EP from old-school grinders Looking For An Answer, which is entitled 'Kraken'.
The first Pissed Jeans album is being reissued by Sub Pop. It's been remastered and includes the two tracks from their debut 7". Now instead of spending twenty quid on it on eBay you can give that same money to Sub Pop. I wonder if Parts Unknown was still a thing that this reissue would do the same for him that 'Bleach' did for Sub Pop? I bet this totally made that Parts Unknown guy a squillionaire and stuff.
Pre-orders are up for the vinyl reissue of Celan's 'Halo' album, via Corpse Flower Records. In case you missed it first time around, they play(ed?) heavy yet artful noise-rock and comprise(d?) fine fellows who've spent time with Unsane, Oxbow, Einstürzende Neubauten and flu.ID.
