Since releasing their debut EP Nothing For Us Here and their 7″ EP Useless Animal, Cult Leader have gotten angrier, heavier, and much more pissed off. Cult Leader released the first single off of their upcoming debut album titled “Lightless Walk” which is coming out on October 16th (my birthday is the 13th if someone wants to be kind enough to send me the album as a gift ;)) and we at Heavy Blog are excited to hear it.

The Black Dahlia Murder And Friends Head Out On IndieMerch Anniversary Tour

Woah. I don’t think of myself as a jealous person but fuck me sideways, this is unfair in the best possible way. To celebrate ten years of providing moshers, grinders and hardcore dancers with the finest threads, IndieMerch have gathered together a who’s who of the heaviest bands around. Headlining the tour are The Black Dahlia Murder, who may or may not be my favourite band, and if that isn’t enough to get your wallets out then wait for the support acts. Representing the denim jacketed thrash masses are Iron Reagan. Next up is hatecore monsters Harm’s Way, fresh from dropping the phenomenal Rust. Is that all? No. Maruta are playing these shows too… Jealous.
