STONEBURNER: Portland Sludge Slingers Reveal Album Details

Portland sludge slingers and recent Neurot family additions, STONEBURNER, are readying to unleash their forthcoming new full-length, entitled Life Drawing. The follow-up to their 2012 debut, Sickness Will Pass, which The Sludgelord appropriately crowned “an ugly, visceral and truly terrifying beast of an album,” and Metal Underground dubbed “a bruising sludge/doom debut that is the perfect antidote to the dog days of summer,” features nine rumbling odes of bottom-heavy hostility and emotional decay. Recorded, mixed and produced by Fester at Haywire Studios, mastered by Adam Gonsalves at Telegraph Mastering – both in Portland – and swathed in the visually abrasive cover art of J.J. Shirey, Life Drawing promises to hurl STONEBURNER’s habitually chest-caving sludge mantras to entirely new realms of earth-deteriorating heaviness.

Comments the band in a collective statement: “Lyrically we've always focused on personal matters, and one theme that particularly seems to keep coming up on this record is the struggle to be a decent person in a world that keeps doing its best to cause you not to be. J.J. Shirey, who paints our album covers, is part of the STONEBURNER brotherhood and we have absolute faith in him. We have him sit in on rehearsals, read our lyrics, and then we send him off to come up with whatever he thinks best suits the material. We feel that this piece absolutely captures the mood of trying to grow and heal, but constantly finding yourself falling back into the darkness caused by emotional and physical addictions. The world isn't always a happy, beautiful place, and neither is our music. Thanks to J.J. you're going to sense that before you even hear the album.”

Life Drawing Track Listing:
1. Some Can
2. Caged Bird
3. Drift
4. An Apology To A Friend In Need
5. Pale New Eyes
6. Giver Of Birth
7. Done
8. You Are The Worst
9. The Phoenix

STONEBURNER features a persuasive musical ancestry that winds through Buried At Sea, Buried Blood, Heathen Shrine and others. Named after a subterranean weapon from the novel Dune, STONEBURNER deliver a wholly organic orchestration of captivating, crustified doom metal, their torrid hymns bathed in internal agony, anguish and despair. To define STONEBURNER, one need only look to the list of bands with whom they’ve shared the stage: Yob, Sleep, Eyehategod, Neurosis, Buzzov-en, Weedeater, Saint Vitus, Watain, Tragedy, Noothgrush, Graves At Sea, Lord Dying, Drop Dead, Whitehorse, Wind Hand, Bastard Noise…

Life Drawing will be unleashed via Neurot Recordings later this Spring. 
Stay tuned for further info.

Tone Release New Free Single

Neurot Alumni, Tone, have just released an awesome new free single. Check it out! From the band themselves:

On January 23rd, 2014, Tone released -- digitally -- for free our new single, "INCOMING"
This song marks the beginning of 2014,
memorializes the first studio recordings as a five piece,
and presents our newest release in over two years.
Recorded here in Washington,
and phenomenally mixed by Kurt Ballou at GodCityStudio.
Suffice to say we are all extremely gratified to present what we feel is one of the densest and stratified pieces we have ever put forth.
We want to share this with everyone on the list now - for FREE:
Partake, enjoy,
and please spread this far and wide......
We are intensely excited about playing with Black Clouds next week at the Black Cat on February 1st, including a live presentation of this very same track.
Thank you all quite kindly,
-- Tone (DC) --
Norm Veenstra, Gregg Hudson, Jim Williamson, Charles Andrews, Gustavo Vargas

STONEBURNER: Portland Sludge Bringers Announce US Tour Dates

Portland sludge bringers and recent Neurot family additions, STONEBURNER, will bring their audio punishment to the stage later this month with three West Coast sessions of debauchery. Set to commence January 24th in Oakland, the band - guitarists Elijah Boland and Jason Depew, bassist/vocalist Damon Kelly and drummer/vocalist Jesse McKinnon - will rupture pavementalongside fellow amplifier abusers Eyehategod, Weedeater, Graves At Sea and more.STONEBURNER's short run of live abrasions serves as a precursor to the band's forthcoming new full-length, Life Drawing, slated for release via Neurot Recordings later this Spring.

States the band simply, "The grey, rainy weather has finally hit us here in Portland, and we're feeling like getting out of the house..."

  • 1/24/2014 Oakland Metro - Oakland, CA w/ Eyehategod, Graves At Sea, Lidtoker, Swamp Witch, Lycus, Augurs [info]

  • 1/26/2014 Rotture - Portland, OR w/ Weedeater, Usnea, more [info]

  • 1/28/2014 The Highline - Seattle, WA w/ Weedeater, Wounded Giant, more [info]

With a focus on domination through amplification and soul-cleansing catharsis, STONEBURNER features a persuasive musical ancestry that winds through Buried At Sea, Buried Blood, Heathen Shrine and others. Named after a subterranean weapon from the novel Dune, the STONEBURNER collective vomit forth a groin-churning orchestration of wholly absorbing, crustified doom metal, their torrid hymns bathed in internal agony, anguish and despair. To define STONEBURNER, one need only look to the list of bands with whom they've shared the stage: Yob, Sleep, Eyehategod, Neurosis, Buzzov-en, Weedeater, Saint Vitus, Watain, Tragedy, Noothgrush, Graves At Sea, Lord Dying, Drop Dead, Whitehorse, Wind Hand, Bastard Noise... Life Drawing, the follow-up to their 2012 debut, Sickness Will Pass, which The Sludgelord fittingly christened "an ugly, visceral and truly terrifying beast of an album," promises to take their chest-caving sludge anthems to entirely new levels of earth-decaying heaviness.

Further STONEBURNER info, including official release dates and track listing, will be unveiled in the coming weeks.

CORRECTIONS HOUSE: Stateside Takeover To Commence This Evening

This evening, CORRECTIONS HOUSE will take Seattle beginning a brief but epic run of live takeovers to ring in the New Year. Set to commence at The Highline, the band — Mike IX Williams (Eyehategod), Scott Kelly (Neurosis), Bruce Lamont (Yakuza), Sanford Parker (Minsk) and their minister of propaganda, Seward Fairbury — will march on through the weekend leveling Portland, Los Angeles, San Diego, and San Francisco leaving nothing but burning embers and the stench of chaos in their wake. The latest excursion follows the band’s year-end tramp through Europe. Additionally, the band will return to The Netherlands this Spring to preach their end-time message atop the main stage of the 013 venue in Tilburg April 10th at Roadburn. On Friday, April 11th at Het Patronaat, Kelly, Williams, Parker and Lamont will each perform solo material, aided and abetted by a selection of others as they see fit.

CORRECTIONS HOUSE is currently touring in support of their Last City Zero debut, issued via Neurot Recordings in late October. Produced by Parker at Electrical Audio, Soma Studios, 60 Psycho Hum and Nodferatu’s Lair, Last City Zero is the audio end product of government conspiracies, societal ruin and psychological decay. Traveling far beyond the traditional confines of any one specific genre, Last City Zero is at once beautifully hideous, graceful and terrifying and continues to raise the brows of exploratory fans and critics around the globe. Among other year-end triumphs, the record nabbed the number thirty-eight spot On Decibel’s coveted Top 40 Albums of 2013 list, the number nine slot on Exclaim’s Top Ten Metal & Hardcore Albums and the fourth position on Cvlt Nation’s Top Six Avant-Garde Releases.

CORRECTIONS HOUSE Live Takeover 2014:
1/02/2014 The Highline – Seattle, WA w/ Wrekmeister Harmonies
1/03/2014 Tonic Lounge – Portland, OR w/ Wrekmeister Harmonies
1/05/2014 Echoplex – Los Angeles, CA w/ Wrekmeister Harmonies, Author & Punisher
1/06/2014 Soda Bar – San Diego, CA w/ Wrekmeister Harmonies, Author & Punisher
1/07/2014 Great American Music Hall – San Francisco, CA w/ Wrekmeister Harmonies, Sutekh, Hexen
4/10/2014 013 Venue – Tilburg, NL
4/11/2014 Het Patronaat – Tilburg, NL

CORRECTIONS HOUSE premiered a video for the track “Bullets And Graves,” upon unsuspecting masses via MTV Hive. As captivating as it is disconcerting, the wholly black and white production is a flagrantly violent, roadside nightmare dominated by shady characters, vicious beatdowns and nameless destinations. If you missed it, check it out below.

“CORRECTIONS HOUSE have created something wholly original, incredibly touching, and most likely alienating. Bravo gentlemen, bravo. 10/10” — Crave

“Featuring dark, depressing atmospheres and exceptionally negative, apocalyptic vibes, Last City Zero is brooding, raw and corrosive, as well as breathtakingly beautiful. 9/10” — Exclaim!

“On Last City Zero, CORRECTIONS HOUSE survey the world with a bleak outlook, as much with scorn as sadness. The industrial/mechanical side feels indicative of how the soul is being ripped from the chest of society, whereas the cleaner side represents the need to hold on to our own individuality. The angry screams voice the fight to maintain what is ours and to retake what has been taken, and the spoken voices of reason and honesty instill reflectiveness and a lack of ignorance…4/5” – About.com

“Like their main bands, there is no relegating this music to the background. It is so insidious, stark and sure of itself that it righteously demands your full attention. CORRECTIONS HOUSE has much more depth than labels such as ‘Doom’ or ‘Experimental’ could ever justify… Not only are these men masters of their own individual sounds, they have managed to create something together that is bigger than themselves. And that is a ‘supergroup’ that gets it right. 10/10” – Ghost Cult

“The four members of CORRECTIONS HOUSE do exactly what you would expect from them. Each musician brings along his own identity and experience, they throw it together in the mix and come up with something extraordinary. 9/10” – Scene Point Blank

“The coming together of CORRECTIONS HOUSE seems like one of those moments where the protagonists caught lightning in a bottle, a project designed to explore the diseased, dark underbelly of the American Dream, like the soundtrack to a David Lynch film… It’s not perfect — at times it is ugly and raw — but it is something special and a captivating project delivered with complete conviction by its cast of players.” — The Sleeping Shaman

Last City Zero is available at THIS LOCATION.
