WILL DESTROY YOU NEWS
Late last month, an audience of 3 and 4-star generals were treated to
the sounds of Texan instrumentalists THIS WILL DESTROY YOU
as part of a third-party presentation and subsequent exercise concerning
disaster preparedness and response in the wake of recent natural phenomena
and tragedies (Hurricane Katrina, et al).
The 5-screen event took place in Arlington, VA at the Pentagon. Songs
played during the presentation were "Quiet" and "The World
Is Our ____."
The band has completed recording and mixing of their eponymous second
album for Magic Bullet Records. Clocking in at around 52 minutes, this
7 song opus is sure to stun hearts and minds upon release this fall. Stay
tuned for album previews and further information.
WILL DESTROY YOU is currently on the road with FEAR BEFORE THE
MARCH OF FLAMES and 65 DAYS OF STATIC. Visit the "shows" section
of the site for full dates.
ON BEHALF OF YOUR EARS, MAGIC BULLET WELCOMES FIVE NEW VIRGINIA-BASED
Hailing from Fairfax, Virginia, it's kind of amazing to consider that
THE WAYWARD collectively have but a mere six arms. Simply
put, there's a LOT going on with the band's music. Slabs and slabs of
riffs uncoil at a frenetic pace courtesy of Nicholas and Jesse Skrobisz,
a hypnotic concoction brewed from years of brotherhood and shared experience.
One-swinging-guy Nathaniel Simms powers his way through the hot choppery,
finding rhythms eschewing both harmonious conviction and technicality.
Having looped the U.S. numerous times already, the band will set out this
October and November yet again. "Overexposure," their second
full length and Magic Bullet Records debut, will be in tow on both CD
and LP formats.
In the meantime, get acquainted with these guys via their MySpace
profile and be sure to pick up their first full length from our man
Mike Hill over at Black
down I-95 (Richmond, to be exact) resides an unassuming musical powerhouse
we all commonly refer to as "Tracy Wilson." Veterans of the
mid-90's hardcore and emo scenes will fondly recall her work in New Jersey's
DAHLIA SEED. However, since the demise of the former, Tracy has been steadily
amassing a body of work under the moniker RINGFINGER,
which features a slew of guest musicians and contributors lending transcendent
performances that somehow find unification via her impeccable taste and
meticulous song-writing. Guests/friends like Aaron Turner (ISIS), Stephen
Brodsky (CAVE IN), Oktopus (DALEK), Rex Ritter (SUNN O))), JESSAMINE,
FONTANELLE, et al), Cam DiNuzio (DENALI), and others weave their way seamlessly
throughout Wilson's blissful sonic wonderland.
Magic Bullet is pleased to be releasing "Decimal" on limited
edition LP this fall. For more information, please visit Tracy on
hailing from Richmond, both YEARS and VENTOUX
are the solo monikers for two of the city's most talented musicians. YEARS
is none other than Ryan Parrish, noted percussionist from top shelf acts
DARKEST HOUR and CITY OF CATERPILLAR. VENTOUX is multi-instrumentalist
Graham Scala, who currently plays in SOUVENIR'S YOUNG AMERICA and was
also recently a featured musician on AUGHRA's remix of multi-platinum
icons THE ALL-AMERICAN REJECTS.
Magic Bullet will be issuing a very special limited edition split CD between
YEARS and VENTOUX, showcasing the immense
talent of these two incredible musicians in a more intimate and personal
solo-recording format. Both offer up material far removed from their full-band
contributions that should leave listeners captivated by the ethereal nature
of the sounds and craving more.
go back up in Northern Virginia, where esteemed party animals RATTLER
are putting the final touches on their Magic Bullet debut, a split CD
with resident MBR stable-stud NITRO TOKYO. They kill beers, they skate,
their hair is only contained by their sweaty headbands, and they purely
sing the praises of a good time. We can back that... Rumored to feature
members of OLYMPIA, RATTLER gives you 110% every single
We're throwing a big CD release party in Washington D.C. on September
1 at the Black Cat. Do not miss RATTLER and NITRO TOKYO
help you kiss summer goodbye in top form.
