letlive architects tour

To be completely honest, I haven’t been all that excited over metalcore in years, but it’s hard to deny the strength of the long-rumored Letlive/Architects co-headlining trek featuring support from Glass Cloud and I The Mighty. I’m pretty stoked over that lineup, and Letlive are reasonably enthusiastic as well:

We’ve been a band for nearly a decade and this is our 2nd proper United States headliner. That being the case, it is a rather significant and pivotal endeavor at once. Now that you know that, you can safely assume how important this tour is to us as well as who we share it with.

We’ve already covered The Chariot‘s farewell tour in pictures once before, but considering the circumstances, we figured we would highlight more than one stop. Chris Collins attended his local show in Dallas and snapped a huge set of photos of The Chariot and direct supporting act Glass Cloud. Check out the photos after the jump.

fall in archaea

The viciously grooving tech deathcore sound of The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza is sorely missed around these parts, and guitarist Josh Travis’ new band Glass Cloud just doesn’t cut it. I’ve since given up on finding a replacement and moved on.

This week, I’ve re-discovered Canadian group Fall In Archaea. When I last left off with them, I was under the impression the group were another upstart in the djent/deathcore movement that, while flashy, were at risk of fading out once the trend passed. As it turns out, Fall In Archaea aren’t a band content with sitting still and writing uninspired music. Their new single ‘Armistice‘ picks up the Danza legacy and kicks it up in just about every notch, including a melodic climax fit for Architects‘ masterpiece Hollow Crown. Check it out below:

All good things must come to an end, but it’s always a huge bummer when things come to a close far too soon. Hardcore modern legends The Chariot have vowed to close the curtain on the band following a farewell tour with support from Glass Cloud, among others. You can view photos from the show’s New York stop at Santos Party House courtesy of Maclyn Bean Photography below. Long Live The Chariot.

 glass cloud perfect war forever

We teased it yesterday so I’m not going to bullshit too much about it, but this new track from Glass Cloud, taken from their upcoming new EP Perfect War Forever, is definitely infectious. I’ve played it a couple of times now and I’m still amazed by just how heavy it sounds, but I guess I shouldn’t have expected much less from Josh Travis. Play it below and then press play again… and the maybe again:

 glass cloud perfect war teaser

We’ve already heard a couple of teasers of this new upcoming Glass Cloud EP, but late last night the band’s Facebook page posted a new link to a page entitled Perfect War Forever, promising new music this Friday. The site seems to pull picture references to the EP from Twitter and the like, but also contains a full minute long teaser and, well, it sounds heavy as fuck. See below:

basick discovery

Basick Records are definitely one of the better labels out there right now, especially in terms of forward-thinking progressive metal. Their lineup includes bands such as The Algorithm, Uneven Structure, Dissipate and Glass Cloud, just to give you an idea. Anyways, they’re now doing a new promotion called ‘The Summer Of Discovery’, and it sounds like a pretty good deal.

Glass Cloud

I’m a little ashamed to admit that it took until the last Glass Cloud album, The Royal Thousand, to check out the deranged guitar antics of Josh Travis. Some of the riffs he comes up with are just mindbending and there was plenty of downright brutal sections peppered throughout the record, which, incidentally, were some of my favourite moments on it. So, naturally, I was extremely excited to hear this new teaser for their upcoming EP that popped up on Hipstergram the other night — it’s barbaric:
