BATTALION OF SAINTS – West Coast Punk Icons To Release 7-Inch Via Southern Lord In October; Reissues And Live Dates On The Horizon

Southern Lord proudly announces the raging return of legendary West Coast punk heathens, BATTALION OF SAINTS. Led by surviving member George Anthony, the band has three furious brand new songs that kick ass just as effectively as their classics. The Battalion Of Saints 7″ will be released in October via Southern Lord.

BATTALION OF SAINTS was a major catalyst in accelerating the transition from the already upbeat, adrenaline-charged punk of the early 1980s in to feral, snarling hardcore punk of the highest quality and intensity. Pounding distorted pace, live shows dripping with sweat and threat, and a gnarly attitude – BATTALION OF SAINTS stands tall among bands from the era including the Dead Kennedys, Crucifix, Minor Threat and Discharge as well as Southern Lord’s Poison Idea, The Offenders and Excel, remaining a crucial part of an immortal and ongoing legacy.

Founding vocalist George Anthony leads the charge in 2015, joined by a no-nonsense lineup of hardcore convicts; drummer Mike Vega plays in legendary cult thrashers Hirax, while Matt Vicknair has spent time on bass in equally eminent USHC hardcore royalty Angry Samoans and the band now sees guitarist Nate Javier, also of Angry Samoans and others, joining the lineup.

Youth Forgotten - promo cover pic - 2014 - #19

Revolver Magazine is streaming the entire debut full-length from Cleveland quintet YOUTH FORGOTTENGhost Of A Fallen Empire, as the band releases the album into the public today.

Unifying former members of Dead Even, Salt The Wound, Above The Fire, Chimaira and Integrity, YOUTH FORGOTTEN forges straightforward, energetic, metal/punk-fueled hardcore. A high-octane release with the bustling angst, recalling the energy of the 1990s punk/hardcore movements, Ghost Of A Fallen Empire is a forty-minute, action-packed release packed with ten anthems aimed at lethargic, fad-driven acts that pollute the current scene. Recorded with Rob Arnold of Chimaira, marking his debut as a producer, Ghost Of A Fallen Empire is now officially available digitally, while the band finalizes plans for the upcoming physical pressing of the album.

Weed out the weak and resurrect the Ghost Of A Fallen Empire at Revolver RIGHT HERE.

With tour plans for the coming months currently being devised, YOUTH FORGOTTEN’s hometown record release party for the album will go down tomorrow evening, the act joined by nine bands considered true allies including Fuck You Pay Me, Teddy Boys, Cholera, Aricebo, Cop Problem and more. Every paid head at the door will instantly receive a handmade CD version of Ghost Of a Fallen Empire crafted exclusively for this event.

YOUTH FORGOTTEN-Ghost Of A Fallen Empire Record Release Show:

2/01/2014 The Foundry Concert Club – Lakewood, OH [info]

Critical Praise:

“Brutal riffs, hardcore punk intensity, anthemic vocals, an ear for meaningful technicality, all combined with a live show that more than punctuates the sentiment- Youth Forgotten should prove a force to reckoned with in 2014.” – Blow The Scene

“Contender for album of the year. If rating is something I would do I would give this one 10 sticks of dynamite.” – Hard Times

“If their past success in the metal scene is any indication of things to come for this band, then audiences should take notice of this release. This is only a warm-up for Youth Forgotten and I can’t wait to see what’s next.” – Broken Neck Radio

GRAVE ROBBER – Confirmed For Warriors Of Metal Fest VII Pre-Fest Showcase

Grave Robber - promo live photo - 2013 - #6767

January 23, 2014  Cincinnati, Ohio – The Warriors of Metal, Inc. non-profit organization is very excited to announce that Fort Wayne, Indiana’s premier Horror Punk band GRAVE ROBBER has gladly accepted the unenviable challenge of being the “show closer” and final performer for the Pre-Fest Showcase of the Warriors Of Metal Fest VII, which will take place at O’Shecky’s LIVE Bar & Grill on Thursday, June 26 in Columbus, Ohio.

Vocalist Wretched states:  “We are honored and excited to have been invited by Datis to play the Warriors Of Metal Pre-fest and our second time on the O’Shecky’s stage. As a theatrical horror punk band, we have always had utmost respect for all things metal and have always included touches of metal in our artistic vision of horror. In fact, similar to The Misfits, we have found that quite a large percentage of our fanbase are straight up metalheads who hate punk, but somehow find common ground with Grave Robber and love what we do. We are greatly looking forward to playing way too loud, way too fast, way too aggressive and making some friends and comrades in aggressive musical endeavors. Thank you again, Datis from the bottom of our reanimated, undead hearts. Be afraid, be very afraid!”

Believe the hype with the official music video for GRAVE ROBBER’s “Altered States,” now playing below:
