SEVENTEEN AGAIN - INVOKE (preorders up!)

What do you get when 2/3 the Reptilian start a heavier band with members of Forget the Times / Ackley Kid and have about 400 shows or more under their belts combined.
Enough Guessing.  Here you are We present SEVETEEN AGAIN a loud burst of Michigan's fury.  The album cover for Invoke shows a bleak snow covered uncapped hole in the ground.  Representing the mundane everyday life we all strive to leave behind or forget from time to time while we plan out extraordinary things we all know we are capable of.
Take yr ears on a ride to a bleak side of the Kalamazoo experience.  Be ready for Seventeen Again to hit the road very soon with Marcy.  Tour Routing to be announced in the coming weeks.

Cassilis - Quitting STREAM / PREORDER up now!

11 jams one sided 12" Half and Half random color. Loud Botch N Roll sounds / driving kinda 90's heavy (ex snowing, boys n sex, make me)

After sitting on a few select computers for almost a year, CASSILIS' new album is now available for pre-order with an immediate download. There's no point in tiptoeing around the facts - this album fucking owns. 11 songs that are without a doubt the band's most mature release to date show the band expanding and focusing more on a cohesive structure in an a valiant attempt at anchoring down the chaos that emanates from anything the band touches. Songs such as "Bone Sled", "Groan Sleeve" and "American 90s" showcase this attention to crafting much more fluid songwriting abilities, while the tracks "God Hair", "Softie" and "Rat Park" are like refined blades of violent discontent in audio form. This album is not pretty, it's dirty, caustic and viral. I mean, c'mon - the artwork and song titles say it all. Fans of Brighter Arrows, Canyons, Callow and Bleeding Kansas take note, as this is easily one of the strongest releases of 2014. 
The breakdowns and freakouts are timed perfectly and executed flawlessly. All pre-orders come with an immediate download of the 'Quitting', so don't pass on this.

split release with Zegema Beach / Square of Opposition / Black Lake
