Unlike experimental acts that seek to add spice to their metal via elements of other styles, BLOODIEST take the opposite approach. The band uses metal to sharpen its attack, which at its core is composed more of rock and avant-garde themes than extreme metal. The band’s members have played in Russian Circles, Corrections House, and Yakuza, among others.
Chicago band LUGGAGE is comprised of members of BASIC CABLE, LOOSE DUDES and CLEARED. Formed in 2015, they’ve already given the world a debut LP, Sun, on Automatic Recordings and a solid follow-up record with Three (Don Giovanni). The trio’s dark, noisy blend of shoegaze, post-punk and droning psychedelia is intensely hypnotic.
Touched By Ghoul
Fantastically-named Chicago band TOUCHED BY GHOUL return to our stage after opening for the Foo Fighters at Wrigley freaking field last year. The four-piece brings disturbingly addictive tracks that come off their debut LP, Murder Circus (Under Roads Records). Raucous, debaucherous and utterly face-melting scuzz rock. We imagine they’ll bring the darkness with em tonight and can only hope we’ll get some new tracks alongside those burners we know and love.
