One Day You Will Ache Like I Ache is the fittingly-titled, forthcoming collaborative debut between apocalyptic doom duo, THE BODY, and grindcore/harsh noise sculptors, FULL OF HELL. Set for release on March 25th via Neurot Recordings, the offering came together during last year’s massive North American trek which united both bands. Amidst the chaos of tour life, the two groups found time to record together at Machines With Magnets in Providence, Rhode Island. The session eventually culminated into One Day You Will Ache Like I Ache, which is ultimately an audio reflection of their surroundings and their inability to cope therein.

As a precursor to its release, today Spin Magazine offers up eighth scathing movement, “The Little Death,” commending the track’s “jackhammering drums, monsooning guitars, and the ambulance-siren shrieks of Body vocalist Chip King.”

Sample the ferocious sounds of “The Little Death,” at THIS LOCATION.

In related THE BODY and FULL OF HELL missives, the nihilistic union will descend upon Europe together this April. The string of dates see the bands travel across the Netherlands, Belgium, the United Kingdom, Denmark, Germany, Czech Republic, France, Spain and Portugal, including appearances at the renowned Roadburn Festival and providing support for Converge’s “Blood Moon” spectacle at the Electric Brixton, London.

Forged in 1999 in Little Rock, Arkansas and now based in Portland, Oregon, THE BODY has been massively prolific since their inception with a sound that is uncategorized and unmatched. The duo writes and acts as one, a deafening wail against a failing species.

FULL OF HELL was formed in 2009 in Ocean City, Maryland. In similar ethos, the band has remained relentlessly productive both on stage and in recorded form and has continued to challenge themselves, channeling resonances from across the spectrum of extreme music into an uncompromising wall of oppressive sound.

Through their own respective recordings, both THE BODY and FULL OF HELL are internationally-revered as forward-thinking entities of harsh music, delivering their audio torment through incredibly intense and often unorthodox methods.

Neurot Recordings will issue One Day You Will Ache Like I Ache on March 25th, 2016 with preorder bundles available at THIS LOCATION.

Neurosis’ SCOTT KELLY will bring his signature acoustic odes of pain, reflection and redemption to stages again later this month on a week-long run of solo dates. Set to begin on February 23rd in Nashville, Tennessee and run through February 29th in Shreveport, Louisiana, KELLY will be performing material predominantly from his starkly minimalist The Wake full-length as well as his recently issued three-song EP, Push Me On To The Sun. KELLY will be accompanied by multi-instrumentalist and backing vocalist John Judkins of Rwake. See confirmed dates and venues below. 

In related news, SCOTT KELLY recently released a three-song EP entitled Push Me On To The Sun available now through My Proud Mountain and currently streaming in full at Cvlt Nation who issues of the poignant offering, “This record is soul music at the highest level, meaning that Scott bares all of his emotion, and that is what makes the songs so powerful. The confidence that he unleashes in his songs make this some of the best happy music clothed in reality you might hear this year. When I hear him sing that he got his teeth kicked in on San Pablo Ave and had a gun put to his head, it’s not just about the violence, but also where he had put himself during that part of his life.”

Hear Push Me On To The Sun at THIS LOCATION.

Brothers of the Sonic Cloth to embark on their debut European tour this spring

The bellowing trio of BROTHERS OF THE SONIC CLOTH (Tad Doyle, Peggy Doyle and Dave French) embark on their first European tour this coming spring, in support of their astoundingly heavy debut self-titled full-length, which saw release last year through Neurot Recordings. This tour will see the band start with a date in London and rumble through France, Spain, Italy, Austria and Germany, before wrapping it up with a set at this year's Roadburn, the spiritual home of all things low-end and high-powered.

BROTHERS OF THE SONIC CLOTH is the sound of earthly decomposition and planetary demise; a slow, entrancing dance towards a looming apocalypse… thick, monolithic, deliberate and devouring. Fronted by Seattle’s legendary guitarist/vocalist Tad Doyle — formerly of TAD and Hog Molly -- BROTHERS OF THE SONIC CLOTH is a trio of longtime rock soldiers that includes veteran bassist Peggy Doyle and drummer Dave French (The Anunnaki). Their full-length 2015 debut maintains a long-held tradition of conjuring some of the heaviest music from the darkest depths of the Pacific Northwest.

Released via Neurot Recordings, Brothers of the Sonic Cloth was captured at Robert Lang Studios and Doyle’s own Witch Ape Studio in Seattle, Washington and mixed by Billy Anderson (Sleep, High On Fire, Melvins et al). Thrusting forth five hauntingly heavy tracks, with two bonus hymns included on the CD edition the offering serves as Doyle’s first recorded release in nearly fifteen years. BROTHERS OF THE SONIC CLOTH’s audio manifestations are welcomingly unfamiliar, splicing thick, jagged riffs through chilling post-punk drumming and hulking compositions that blow soulfully hot and desolately cold, sometimes within the confines of one track. Their long-form pieces present the kind of mature ideas and expansive progressions that outpace the listener’s short-term memory leading them off the proverbial map; familiar landmarks like sludge, post-metal, rock all but disappeared over the horizon. Authentic and authoritative, BROTHERS OF THE SONIC CLOTH is as much a persistent thudding body punch of sonic destructive force as it is a thoughtful statement of awareness and the inescapable raw condition of life.

"Perhaps his heaviest yet, tolling tombstone riffs at a pace that makes early Melvins resemble the Ramones... BROTHERS OF THE SONIC CLOTH impress with the monolithic power of their noise." - MOJO

"Tad's vocals and songwriting have broadened impressively during his sabbatical." -KERRANG

"Tad Doyle is back with a sludge rock, pagan rite of immense proportions... BROTHERS OF THE SONIC CLOTH may seem to follow the arc of a tropical storm, with a building and threatening power that finally recedes away, but it’s certainly no noodling, progressive rock concept piece. This is truly heavy music." - THE ARTS DESK

"Ultimately, BROTHERS OF THE SONIC CLOTHS’s LP is so tasty, it’ll have you unashamedly coming back for seconds, and thirds, and fourths, and dessert, and a cheese course, and just one tiny little wafer thin mint..." - DROWNED IN SOUND

"Moving between moments of gargantuan heaviness and passages of disorientating methylated noise, whilst the likes of opener Lava will be somewhat familiar to fans of 8-Way Santa, the sprawling mass of La Mano Poderosa, that takes in elements of both mid-era Killing Joke and the abrasive and tribal riffing of, say, High On Fire, is as surprising as the piano ballad outro." - METAL HAMMER

"BROTHERS OF THE SONIC CLOTHS’s self-titled debut is a sludgy, psychedelic piece of work that occasionally reaches Conan-esque levels of thunder and will hit your psyche in all the right places." - THRASH HITS
