Russian Circles are doing shows to promote an album released last fall called Memorial (Sargent House) because it’s damn good, and they feel people need to hear and/or no more.

SOME STUFFS: Pink Frost share first song from new EP

It will be a two month wait before Pink Frost releases their new recording, a brand new EP called Traitors but you do not have to wait to hear a song from it. This one is called “Seek And Recover”. If you can’t wait to see them live, they’ll be playing in Chicago tomorrow at the Bottom Lounge alongside Deafheaven and Perfect Pussy.

The Traitors EP will be released on September 16th.

SOME STUFFS: Boris in U.S. for “residency” tour

Boris began their U.S. tour two days ago, and as they are here moving from coast to coast, some of the shows will be part of a residency. This means if you live in specific cities, you will have two chances to see them, each time being different from the other. The tour is being called “from the past, the present and through to the future”, as one night will feature the band playing classics and new material, while the other night will have the band playing the majority of their Flood album, followed by an experimental/drone/noise sex. Get your Boris boners:
