Ohio riff rock perpetrators LO-PAN, will enter Translator Audio in Brooklyn, New York next month to record their forthcoming new full-length for amplification station, Small Stone Recordings. Titled Colossus, the offering will be mixed and mastered by Andrew Schneider (Unsane, The Brought Low, Keelhaul) with art direction by Jason Alexander Byers (Black Black Black, Disengage). A Fall release is expected.

In related news, LO-PAN recently joined forces with the roadburning heavyweights at Tone Deaf Touring (Corrosion Of Conformity, Weedeater, ASG) and will embark upon a short stint of live abrasions later this month alongside manic noiserockers, Whores. The ten-date motorcade will include two special Small Stone Showcases in Cambridge and Brooklyn. The following month, the band will join reunited iconic stoner rock sorcerers, Spirit Caravan, and the wicked doom bringers in Pilgrim for a performance in Columbus with additional bouts of onstage debauchery to be announced in the coming months.

ASG’S BLOOD DRIVE MARKS N.C. BAND’S HIGHEST DEBUT

June 7, 2013, Philadelphia – Weedeater and ASG have announced a four-week tour across the United States, kicking off on June 27 in Savannah, Ga. at The Jinx.

The tour comes as ASG celebrate their highest charting and most critically acclaimed album to date, the breakthrough release Blood Drive The twelve-song collection landed at #15 on Billboard’s Heat Seeker chart and also had impressive debuts on the trade magazine’s Hard Music (#32) and Indie (#67) charts.  The album is streaming via Bandcamp at link below:

Stereogum said “Blood Drive is a heavy album, no question, but it’s primarily a catchy album, full of resin-sticky summertime metal.”  Revolver called the album “a catchy, melodic triumph of heavy music,” while Alternative Press asserted that “mentioning ASG in the same breath as riff-rockers Torche or Queens of the Stone Age is not only misleading, it might even be an understatement.”  Artist Direct went even further saying “every now and again a band puts out a record that changes the tides for them” and continued by describing Blood Drive as a “tipping point moment.”

Fellow North Carolinians, Weedeater recently performed at Maryland Death Fest and are currently featured in the premiere episode of Noisey’s Heavy Dicks series (http://youtu.be/nze_JpRrksQ).  The band is currently working on a follow-up to 2011’s Jason… The Dragon.
