BLEACH EVERYTHING Premieres “Nazi Punch, Fuck Yes” Digital Single At Decibel Magazine; Virginia And Texas Shows Confirmed + LP To See 2018 Release

Bleach Everything [photo by Hayley Rippy][photo by Hayley Rippy]

Virginia hardcore/punk outfit BLEACH EVERYTHING has linked up with Decibel Magazine to unload a new digital single reflective of our volatile social and political climate, “Nazi Punch, Fuck Yes.” The song is pulled from the band’s debut LP, which is under construction for release through Magic Bullet Records in early 2018.

Certainly not subtle in message or intent, “Nazi Punch, Fuck Yes” is a unifying anthem for anyone in this world that holds zero tolerance toward racism, bigotry, sexism, homophobia, nationalism, and all beliefs or actions that seek to trample or restrict common decency and respect toward the diversity that keeps us all learning and growing more with each other every day. As a band, and as individuals, BLEACH EVERYTHING refuses to remain silent amidst the re-emerging faces of thinly-veiled Neo-Nazi rhetoric. We know what you’re attempting to do and we will make you afraid again.”

“Nazi Punch, Fuck Yes” was engineered and mixed by Ricky Olson with the vocals being recorded by Brent Eyestone, mastered by Dan Randall at Mammoth Sound, and finished with cover art by Steak Mtn.

Issues BLEACH EVERYTHING vocalist and Magic Bullet owner Brent Eyestone, “’Nazi Punch, Fuck Yes’ is a song we already had in the can for a new LP that we’ve been steadily chipping away at. I had seen Jello Biafra perform at a small dive in Long Beach not too long before Richard Spencer got punched in the face and cried on camera, so the phrase just formed from witnessing those two wonderful experiences and it kept playing over and over in my head until I ended up doing some lyrics in the spirit of that sentiment.

The original intent heading into our upcoming shows in Virginia and Texas was to issue the song as a digital promo to raise awareness of the show dates. As we were planning, Charlottesville happened… and one of Graham’s bosses at work was among the many people struck by the car that ended up killing Heather Heyer. In an instant, this issue that we already took extremely seriously became as personal as it gets. Since then, it’s been a flurry of activity to get this song out there as our own small way of drawing an even harder line on Neo-Nazi actions, sentiment, and beliefs in the face of such shameful actions and events.

‘Nazi Punch, Fuck Yes’ is not a subtle song by any means. I don’t feel I need to explain what it means or what the nuances of the lyrics are. My hope is that it reminds our allies that punk rock is still a place where you can find people just like you… who want to smash this racist shit into non-existence until every person we share a planet with is truly able to appreciate and participate in the grand experiment of learning about, growing with, and sharing with one another our diverse cultures to the point where it all becomes something entirely new that we can all experience together. If you want these things, punk rock is looking for you.”

Stream BLEACH EVERYTHING’s defiant “Nazi Punch, Fuck Yes” at Decibel RIGHT HERE.

“Nazi Punch, Fuck Yes” will initially see digital release on August 31st; digital and shirt preorders are available HERE. Also find the track at iTunes HERE, Amazon HERE, Spotify HERE, and Youtube HERE.

BLEACH EVERYTHING has booked a run of shows, kicking off in their hometown of Richmond, Virginia on August 31st, after which the band head to Texas for shows in Houston with Portrayal Of Guilt, playing Fort Worth, and Austin on September 1st, 2nd, and 3rd respectively. A short run of lathe-cut 7” picture discs will be made for these shows; an additional single/flexi run may follow later this year, as the band completes their debut LP.

PAGENINETYNINE: Document 7 Streaming At Invisible Oranges/BrooklynVegan; Tour With Majority Rule To Benefit Arts And LGBT Causes Approaches

pg99live_crop_byfil[photo by Fil]

Magic Bullet Records is reissuing the out-of-print Document 7 LP by defunct PAGENINETYNINE in conjunction with the band’s upcoming brief reunion. Invisible Oranges and BrooklynVegan have partnered to stream the resurrected Document 7 LP by the popular Northern Virginia cult act, paired with an interview on the upcoming reissued LP and tour with Majority Rule next month, which is taking place to benefit regional arts and LGBT causes across the East Coast.

Issues part of the feature on PAGENINETYNINE’s Mike Taylor, “Compared to other installments in the ‘Document’ series which defined their career, Document #7‘s dismal nature briefly punctuated PAGENINETYNINE’s evolution before their return to mania. It was more patient and verbose with its movements, while still exuding the feeling of release which defined their discography. Document #7 is a pummeling trip into discordance which ebbs and flows like waves hitting a sinking ship. Though previous releases evoked a more direct presence, Document #7‘s polarizing shifts from slow to frantic leave behind a deeper feeling of introspection. With a more fine-tuned focus of their orchestral tendencies, PAGENINETYNINE created an even-paced emotional journey with Document #7.”

Check out the PAGENINETYNINE interview and reissued Document 7 at Invisible Oranges HERE and BrooklynVegan HERE.

Magic Bullet Records will be repressing the 15th anniversary edition of the split LP with Majority Rule and the out-of-print Document 7 LP, now as a co-release with guitarist Mike Taylor’s Yr Screaming Youth label. Magic Bullet Records will also be making Document 7available digitally and on all streaming platforms for the first time ever, while Yr Screaming Youth will be doing the same for cassette format. In the spirit of the tour itself, both PAGENINETYNINE and Magic Bullet Records will be donating the digital proceeds from all three albums they’ve done together to charitable causes each quarter.

The Document 7 release will see its digital rebirth on August 11th; digital preorders are now available HERE, with physical preorder links and street date to follow.

After disbanding in May 2003, there was a brief weekend in 2011 where PAGENINETYNINE decided to perform at Best Friends Day in Richmond, Virginia on August 26th and at Black Cat in Washington, DC the following day. Outside of that, it was largely assumed that the band was completely finished… and then the 2016 Presidential election happened. Rather than hashtag their feelings on it, talks began to center around doing something active and in the exact spirit of the Virginia/Washington DC punk and hardcore scene that the members of PAGENINETYNINE originally found their own voices in. 2017 will see the band once again take it out on the road with friends and labelmates Majority Rule for one week of shows wherein the proceeds from each performance will be entirely donated to a local charity.

The Dixie On The Road reunion tour will see PAGENINETYNINE out with their close friends Majority Rule for seven shows in September. Running from September 21st through September 27th, with shows in Richmond, Washington, Baltimore, Philadelphia, two shows in New York, and a closing show in Boston, the proceeds from the shows will benefit the  Richmond Reproductive Freedom ProjectCasa Ruby901 ArtsJuntosNew Sanctuary Movement NYCNew York Legal Assistance Group, and Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Action Coalition.

9/21/2017 Broadberry – Richmond, VA [info]
9/22/2017 St. Stephen’s – Washington, DC [info]

9/26/2017 Goldsounds – Brooklyn, NY [info]
9/27/2017 Great Scott – Boston, MA [info]

Document 7 is a unique piece in the PAGENINETYNINE catalog. Five songs in length, it plays out over the course of 25:26 with two tracks right around a minute apiece (1:18 and 1:08), one clocking in at 4:05, and the other two being much longer at 7:50 and 10:59 apiece. Despite the varying song lengths, the tone is rather consistent in its overall brooding darkness. Recorded by Mike Bossier at Oblivion Studios in the spring of 2000, Document 7was originally released on CD via the now-defunct Happy Couples Never Last label. Magic Bullet Records initially issued the album on LP format in July of 2002.

PAGENINETYNINE (also often listed as pg.99) began in earnest out of Sterling, Virginia in 1997. Over the course of the following six years, the band would go on to issue thirteen recordings with friends’ record labels and tour numerous times around North America and Europe with friends’ bands in tow for each journey. The band practiced a staunch, DIY-based, punk rock ethic that eschewed all traditional music industry practices and tactics. The band’s mantra of “Love your friends… die laughing” indeed marked the ethos by which they carried out every facet.

Magic Bullet Records was fortunate to have worked with the band for three of their records: Document 7 (a studio album), Document 10 (a live split album with Waifle), and Document 12 (a split studio album with Majority Rule). Each of these projects stemmed out of the friendships formed on the road, as all of these bands (along with Crestfallen, Darkest Hour, City Of Caterpillar, Strike Anywhere, and Corn On Macabre) played together and toured together countless numbers of times, and shared members constantly.

INTRCPTR Debut I Now Streaming; EP Out Now

INTRCPTR_3367 [photo by Marfa Capodanno][photo by Marfa Capodanno]

Los Angeles-based INTRCPTR — with guitarist Ben Carr of 5ive and drummer Larry Herweg of Pelican – today issues their debut EP, I, through Magic Bullet Records. Longtime veterans of ungodly catchy riffs within the framework of all things heavy, the duo does not disappoint in the slightest when it comes to one’s preconceptions of what becomes possible when collaborative inspiration between mutually-respected friends persists and persists.

I is the first offering and initial exemplar of the lightning-like strikes of pure, unbridled creativity that can be captured in the proverbial bottle of INTRCPTR. Wide open, completely badass maelstroms of raw musicality sprint right out of the gates, and toward the latter, the rest of the album plays out almost in synchronicity to the type of long, desert drive that sticks in your brain and brings your shoulders down permanently thereafter. Recall Kyuss’ Welcome To Sky Valley and you’re certainly in the right headspace. I was recorded and mixed by Gabe Van at Akira Audio and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege, and bears artwork by Brian Montouri.

INTRCPTR‘s expansive EP can now be streamed and obtained through all major digital portals including Bandcamp HERESpotify HERE, and iTunes HERE.

Decibel Magazine offers, “the duo combine the post-metal sensibilities of Pelican and the thunderous sludge of 5ive,” and Outlaws Of The Sun proclaims that is, “a superbly produced affair,” adding, “The record sounds terrific from the start and it’s to the bands credit they leave you wanting more. I is an excellent debut record from INTRCPTR and I can see these guys making a mighty impression not only with long-time Pelican/5ive fans but also within the instrumental stoner rock community.” With their premiere of the EP’s lead single, BrooklynVegan noted, “If you dig Pelican and/or 5ive, you’re almost definitely gonna like this too. Like both of those bands, ‘Sandstorms’ has crisp sludge riffs and really knows how to keep your attention without any words.” Rock And Roll Fables praises, “INTRCPTR’s debut plays more like a monolithic Karma To Burn than Herweg’s other band with their short, concise brand of instrumental shredding.”

INTRCPTR will play a hometown record release show for next Thursday, July 27th, with The Life And Times and Mossbreaker. Additional shows are to be announced.

INTRCPTR: Decibel Magazine Premieres “Turbines” From Debut EP; “I” Out This Week

“…In the daytime they loom, not menacing, though their presence is always felt. Seemingly at home in the desert even though they are man-made. Turbines”

Next week, Magic Bullet Records will release the debut EP by Los Angeles-based instrumental metal trio, INTRCPTR, simply monikered I. Decibel Magazine has hosted a premiere of the album’s evocative “Turbines” jam.

INTRCPTR is the impossibly brilliant pairing of guitarist Ben Carr and drummer Larry Herweg. Longtime veterans of ungodly catchy riffs within the framework of all things heavy, the duo does not disappoint in the slightest when it comes to one’s preconceptions of what becomes possible when collaborative inspiration between mutually-respected friends persists and persists.

With the wordless “Turbines,” INTRCPTR guitarist Ben Carr offers, “When driving at night, there is a place in the desert right off highway 111. From out of the darkness you suddenly come upon what seem like a thousand tiny red beacons blinking in the distance. You’re almost home. In the daytime they loom, not menacing, though their presence is always felt. Seemingly at home in the desert even though they are man-made. Turbines.”

Following the release of their second LP, The Gentle Indifference Of The Night, through Magic Bullet Records in May, NY IN 64 has released a new guitar playthrough video for “50 Lbs. Of Ash” through Gear Gods.

The follow-up to 2015’s self-titled debut sees New Jersey-based instrumental outfit NY IN 64 – the band formed by members of 1990s screamo act You And I and prog metal troupe East Of The Wall – pushing their sonic template to new heights, realizing an even more refined and uniquely inspired style of instrumental hardcore aggression on The Gentle Indifference Of The Night. The hooks are bigger, the musicianship has broken through the ceiling, the dynamics are deeper and far more textured. With six new movements, The Gentle Indifference Of The Night is a triumph of an album that truly sounds like no other.

The new playthrough video showcases Chris Alfano (also of East Of The Wall) laying down the varied guitar textures of the album’s standout track, “50 Lbs. Of Ash,” through a multi-angle visual depiction of the technical five-and-a-half-minute opus.

Check out Gear Gods to see NY IN 64’s “50 Lbs. Of Ash” playthrough video at THIS LOCATION.

The record was mixed by Scott Evans at Antisleep Audio, and mastered by Nick Zampiello at New Alliance East, and its layout completed with photography by Justin Hock and layout by the band and Brent Eyestone.

“I was driving through the desert, one-hundred-fifteen degrees out, I saw what looked to be a small swarm of bees hanging low on the road ahead, while plowing through it, at ninety miles per hour, it blinded me; turns out It was a sandstorm.” – Ben Carr

The maiden single from the debut by INTRCPTR, “Sandstorms,” is now playing through a co-premiere at partnered sites BrooklynVegan and Invisible Oranges, as the EP nears July release through Magic Bullet Records.

INTRCPTR is the impossibly brilliant pairing of guitarist Ben Carr and drummer Larry Herweg.

MEATWOUND: Raging Live Radio Performance Video Playing At Cvlt Nation; Band Adds To Summer Tour

MeatwoundBandPhoto1

Magic Bullet’s caustic Florida crushers MEATWOUND have just released a raging video of the band performing several tracks on their local radio show, lighting the studio up with several tracks from their newly-released second LP, Largo. The new footage is being broadcast from the Cvlt Nation headquarters.

Scope the footage of MEATWOUND live on WMNF 88.5 FM Tampa Bay at Cvlt Nation RIGHT HERE.

“Flesh Tag” from the Largo LP was also recently featured in an intense DigBMX video feature on pro BMX rider Matt Coplon playing RIGHT HERE.

MEATWOUND has added new tour dates to their Summer tour itinerary in support of Largo, which sees the band on the road for the second half of August, scorching their way up and down the East Coast, including shows with Bölzer, Trepaneringsritualen, Child Abuse, ASM, and more.

Largo is out now through Magic Bullet Records on purple vinyl LP and digital platforms; find ordering options HERE and HERE.

MEATWOUND – featuring members of Combatwoundedveteran, Holy Mountain, Headless Dogs, Primate Research, and more — delivers seven new songs of ungodly sonic devastation with Largo. While a lot of the scuzzy, surging groove of the debut album can be found, the band has pressed down on the accelerator a bit, resulting in faster and more violent-sounding results this time around. As with their debut, the Largo LP was recorded by Dan Byers at Rock Garden Studio, with mastering by Dan Randall at Mammoth Sound, and the record’s visuals were handled Chris Norris, aka Steak Mtn.

MEATWOUND Tour Dates:
8/19/2017 Will’s Pub – Orlando, FL
8/20/2017 house show – Greenville, SC
8/21/2017 Slims – Raleigh, NC
8/22/2017 TBA – Washington, DC
8/23/2017 TBA – Flemington, NJ
8/24/2017 AS220 – Providence, RI

8/30/2017 Shantytown Pub – Jacksonville, FL
8/31/2017 The Orpheum – Tampa, FL w/ Bolzer, Trepaneringsritualen [info]

“…while the record is filthy enough to give you cholera, it’s a fuckfest of bass-powered noiserock and feedback-as-riffage. Something like Coalesce covering Daughters, or maybe it’s the other way around, but not even that really gets at the guts of this stuff.” – Decibel Magazine

“Largo gets in, gets out, and leaves a trail of bodies in its wake. MEATWOUND took the sound they introduced on Addio and made it faster, uglier and more vicious than one could have hoped for. Those looking for a good throttling would be foolish not to dive into MEATWOUND‘s singular, visceral world.” – Svbterranean

“What they do is part avalanche, part concrete-splitter, part acrobatic team (wearing steel-toed boots), part hummingbird the size of a condor (shut up, I’m doing this my way). They’re manic and punishing, but they’re also precise and inventive — and it’s loads of fun to listen to them cut loose…” – No Clean Singing

“Hell, at a scant 27 minutes and some change, Largo is a runaway truck that concusses you before you get a chance to notice its license plate number… In terms of making what appears to be hellish racket sound palatable and catchy, MEATWOUND brings Botch’s catalog to mind. Not a bad place to be.” – Ghost Cult Magazine

Virginia’s Pageninetynine and Majority Rule Reform, Announce Seven Day Tour to Support Progressive Groups

99mrann(From our buddy Katy Otto!)

Sterling, VA , June 1, 2017 – Legendary punk bands and longtime friends pageninetynine and Majority Rule are announcing a joint tour this September on the east coast. These two bands, hailing originally from northern Virginia, decided to reform (in Majority Rule’s case, after thirteen years) for a special and urgent reason – to mobilize concert goers concerned about the political climate in this country.

Each show will benefit a local grassroots organization on the frontlines fighting for civil rights, LGBT rights, youth rights, immigrant and refugee rights, and reproductive rights and justice.

The shows are as follows:

Sept. 21 – Broadberry, Richmond, VA to benefit Richmond Reproductive Freedom Project

Sept. 22 – St. Stephen’s, Washington, DC to benefit Casa Ruby

Sept. 23 – Baltimore, MD to benefit 901 Arts

Sept. 24 – First Unitarian Church, Philadelphia, PA to benefit Juntos

Sept. 25 – St. Vitus, New York City, NY to benefit New Sanctuary Movement NYC

Sept. 26 – Goldsounds, New York City, NY to benefit New York Legal Assistance Group

Sept. 27 – Great Scott, Boston, MA to benefit the Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Action Coalition

Majority Rule and pageninetynine garnered a cult following in the 2000s, touring relentlessly in the U.S., Canada and Europe – often together. They released a split LP and often shared members and vocal duties. In large part, the bands were fueled by a love of their community in northern Virginia.

Through these shows, they aim to share a broader love for community in general. Beneficiary organizations will be tabling and speaking at events, and members of the band are available for comment about why they are choosing to organize a series of DIY punk shows as a site of resistance. Not only do the bands want showgoers to attend – they hope people will walk away from these events with a sense of how they can participate in building communities where people stand up for others through decisive action.

INTRCPTR: Los Angeles Duo To Release Debut In July

INTRCPTR_3530 [photo by Marfa Capodanno][photo by Marfa Capodanno]

INTRCPTR is the impossibly brilliant pairing of guitarist Ben Carr and drummer Larry Herweg. Longtime veterans of ungodly catchy riffs within the framework of all things heavy, the duo does not disappoint in the slightest when it comes to one’s preconceptions of what becomes possible when collaborative inspiration between mutually-respected friends persists and persists.

I is the first offering and initial exemplar of the lightning-like strikes of pure, unbridled creativity that can be captured in the proverbial bottle of INTRCPTR. Wide open, completely badass maelstroms of raw musicality sprint right out of the gates via the aptly-titled “Nightrider” and “Sandstorms.” Toward the latter, the rest of the album plays out almost in synchronicity to the type of long, desert drive that sticks in your brain and brings your shoulders down permanently thereafter. Recall Kyuss’ Welcome To Sky Valley and you’re certainly in the right headspace.

Recorded and mixed by Gabe Van at Akira Audio and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege, with artwork by Brian Montouri, I will be available on all digital and streaming platforms beginning July 21st, 2017, and Bandcamp preorders are now available RIGHT HERE.

See live videos of INTRCPTR performing the track “Nightrider” HERE and “Sandstorms” HERE. Stand by for audio samples from the record to be issued shortly.

I Track Listing:
1. Nightrider
2. Sandstorm
3. Ruby
4. Turbines
5. Watchmaker

INTRCPTR has scheduled a hometown record release show for just days after its release, the band set to play July 27th at Resident, alongside The Life And Times and Mossbreaker. Additional shows are being organized for the months ahead.

New Jersey-based instrumental outfit NY IN 64 — formed by members of 1990s screamo act You And I, and prog metal troupe East Of The Wall — will release their second album, The Gentle Indifference Of The Night, through Magic Bullet Records tomorrow.

Decibel Magazine is now streaming the entire LP, the accompanying write-up noting, “A textured and dynamic album, NY IN 64 combine hardcore, progressive rock and post-rock elements to create an album that stands on its own without vocals. NY IN 64 have evolved from their first, self-titled album, delving further into the fusion of raw hardcore and refined post-rock sounds, creating heavier riffs but also bigger hooks and melodies. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself humming along throughout your day.”

Hear as NY IN 64 lets their instruments do the talking and stream The Gentle Indifference Of The Night at Decibel RIGHT HERE.

NY IN 64 also released a new video for the LP’s intense “Couldn’t Be Saved” which is playing HERE.

The Gentle Indifference Of The Night sees release on all digital platforms and on translucent blue LP through Magic Bullet Records tomorrow, May 26th; find LP preorders at the label webshop HERE and digital/LP preorders at Bandcamp HERE.

In conjunction with the LP’s release, NY IN 64 has booked a record release weekend, which sees them playing Flemington, New Jersey on release day tomorrow, followed with a show in Providence, Rhode Island on Saturday, closing the jaunt with a show in Brooklyn, New York on Sunday. Additional tour dates will be booked in the weeks ahead.

NY IN 64 The Gentle Indifference Of The Night release weekend:
5/26/2017 Flemington DIY – Flemington, NJ
5/27/2017 Psychic Readings – Providence, RI
5/28/2017 Gold Sounds – Brooklyn, NY

The follow-up to 2015’s self-titled debut documents NY IN 64 pushing their sonic template to new heights, realizing an even more refined and uniquely inspired style of instrumental hardcore aggression. The hooks are bigger, the musicianship has broken through the ceiling, the dynamics are deeper and far more textured. The album’s guitars and bass were recorded by Chris Alfano at Volume Fact, the drums and additional guitars recorded by John Ferrara at Portrait Recording Studios. The record was mixed by Scott Evans at Antisleep Audio, and mastered by Nick Zampiello at New Alliance East, and its layout completed with photography by Justin Hock and layout by the band and Brent Eyestone. With six new movements, The Gentle Indifference Of The Night is a triumph of an album that truly sounds like no other.
