Voidbound Live - June 14th, Los Osos CA

From the show we played with Connoisseur, Lesser Animal, Toxic Wizard and Carnies a few weeks ago.

We had planned to play The Singing Flame after this which you will hear a bit of in the beginning, but being 11:30 pm and a house show the cops came back and said it was past an ok hour for music anymore.

We still were able to play Voidbound and this happens to be the first video in which it has been captured in its entirety:

Friend Friday: Augurs

Friend Friday: This week's #friendfriday, we present to you AUGURS from Oakland, CA.

Take a Grind band, make them half as fast, give them a tone Matt Pike himself would be thrilled with and throw on top some of the most desperately fucked up sounding piercing howls and what you come out with is Augurs.

Four of the filthiest sounding human beings in existence are also four of the best dudes we have had the honor to share a stage with. These guys showed up at the DIY Warehouse awhile back and absolutely destroyed things...someone crowdsurfed in a 20x10 room it was so gnarly.

We made friends at that show, played The Hemlock in SF together and run into each other at shows in Northern CA regularly.

They will be playing SLO county with Us, Usnea and Toxic Wizard this August(RSVP here) but if you live anywhere else on the West Coast you can catch them on tour this month at any of the dates listed on the tour page here.

Check out their EP, Old Ways, released in 2013 which absolutely rules. They have a new one on the way that we were lucky enough to get a sneak peek at and trust us, you want to keep an eye out for it.

Saluting those that made this past tour possible

We had an awesome time on tour this past week and some thank yous are definitely in order:

Zack, Matt and Evan from North for giving us some amazing tunes to listen to on every show as well as for being such awesome dudes, we look forward to the next time our paths cross.

Every band that shared a bill with us: Sutratma, Mouth, Meridian, Oldneck, Stoic, Cropburner, AUGURS, Forgotten Gods and BlackSnake

The door, bar and sound staff of each venue for being so cool about us blasting their rooms out.

Anyone that took time out of their life to come support us on this tour.

Keenan of Augurs for giving us a place to crash in Oakland and showing us around the hood.

Rafa of black cobra for surprising us in SF by buying a CD and giving us some invaluable advice on how to ensure the drum volume stays even with our beast of a backline.

We have a few surprises for a bit later in 2014 that we will be diligently working on until then....
