Bodycheck/Resilient Split Release Show

The Bodycheck/Resilient Split will see the light of day on August 27. The always amazing people of the Harrison House are again volunteering to put up with our crap and let us host another release show at what is in my opinion the best venue for music in Fort Wayne. I've had the masters for a few weeks now, and I couldn't be happier with what either band turned out.

Bodycheck play fast thrashy hardcore in the vein of Terror while Resilient prefer a more slow, brooding approach and frequently remind me of Integrity and even Unbroken at times.

The show is $5 and you get a copy of the CD with admission. There are only 100 copies that will ever be pressed so if you want one you'll probably have to be at the show.

This show will be the last show for Bodycheck and the first local show for Resilient since Midwest Hardcore Fest. It will also be KARLOFF'S FINAL SHOW.

Also playing are Iceberg and Parasitic Twin with another TBA.

New Iceberg EP coming by way of Midwestern Decline

Iceberg have been representing Northern Indiana hardcore for the better part of five years now, and we feel honored the dudes in the band wanted to work with us to put out their first official release. They play straight forward no bullshit modern hardcore that doesn't get bogged down in beatdown cliches and packs a huge whallop without regurgitating the same metallic hardcore stuff we've all heard before.

The band is finished with recording, and the record is currently being mixed and mastered. It should be out in September in time for their fall mini tour. In the meantime check out their myspace. They've got some older demo versions of tracks up, as well as all of their upcoming shows.

Cloud Rat

The Cloud Rat LP is finally in! As of this writing, I only have 47 copies left, so please get your orders in/let me know you want one as soon as possible if you are interested. I expect them to go quick.

Reviews are coming in Short Fast + Loud, Maximum Rock N Roll, Give Me Back, and some other zines and web sites as well. In the mean time you can stream the track Athena from the Midwestern Decline facebook page, which is finally linked on the side of the page. Also, for more news on Cloud Rat including show dates check out their blog at Lastly, this release would not have been possible if it weren't for Nevin Marshall at IFB Records or Sock at Otherwise Dead. If you have a second, please check out what each of them are doing as well, they are proof that there are still plenty of people out there who care about real DIY music and culture.
