Adaje + Lizards Have Personalities Split

Carucage Records, Sometimes I Get Drunk, and Sea of Tranquility are releasing a split from both Adaje + Lizards Have Personalities soon. You can pre order the split, along with other stuff, at their merch store and you can listen to it on the releases bandcamp page.

Screamo bands Adaje (Memphis, TN) and Lizards Have Personalities (Lawrence, KS) have each recorded two songs for a new split 7". This is a split label release between Sometimes I Get Drunk, Sea of Tranquility, and Carucage. These are limited to 300 copies.


The Band, not the Romanian artist.

MONOTONSTUDIO RECORDS uploaded Tristan Tzara's seminal Da Ne Zaboravis 7" for download on Bandcamp. They've also got some shirts for sale (and other fine and marvelous things) at their merch site.

CMAR 2012



+++ Ampere/Raein 7" Split +++

Ampere posted on their blogspot a few weeks ago that they are recording a split currently with legendary euro screamo band Raein.

We began recording three new songs on Monday (1/2/12) for a split 7" with our buds in RAEIN. I should have taken a cool this is us recording drums picture, but didn't. Regardless, it's underway.... more exciting updates to follow....
Everyone knows how incredibly great both bands are, and how diligent and prolific Will Dandy of Ampere is. Something to definitely watch out for in the new year.

infact will go soon at the pressing plant the second part of their discography and it will be ready by mid of February, under the name of YEAR 2.

It would mean a lot if you could spread the word. Any support is much appreciated.

Refused Reunion - ATD-I Confirmed

Yeah, this is getting out of hand. Refused is on the Coachella 2012 line-up along with At the Drive-In, which is kind of aggravating, but hopefully both bands do very ridiculous things at the shit show festival.

Read their (uh) communique here.
Talk about it on TEH FORUMS here.

Refused - Rather Be Dead (Who doesn't know the lyrics?)

Also, what do you think about this whole situation? Do you think Refused should be doing this by playing festivals or are they just too big for smaller venues? Similar questions with At the Drive-In... Also, does this mean that Ryan Gosling will eventually be introduced to skram gods Loma Prieta and join the CMHWAK community? Do you think he already lurks?

At the Drive-In Reunion?

In a weird turn of events, At the Drive-In's twitter account has become active and their webpage (which is totally being unavailable at times) posted "¡ ATTENTION ! To whom it may concern: AT THE DRIVE-IN will be breaking their 11 year silence THIS STATION IS …NOW…OPERATIONAL." At the Drive-In's fans are now jumping in delight (I am one of them). What could this mean? Probably participation at 2012's Coachella festival, which is a huge fucking bummer, but perhaps an awesome tour will accompany this. Is Jim Ward in on this?

For Want Of + Adobe Homes. West Coast Tour

The good and amazingly awesome dudes in For Want Of & Adobe Homes. are touring the west coast currently, hitting up places such as Pomona (CA), Eugene (OR), Santa Rosa (CA), and Las Vegas (NV). I failed them drastically by not getting them a show on Jan 14th, but you can still probably help them out. At any rate, check them out. Adobe Homes. posted some pretty cool pictures of their new shirts (1 & 2) on their facebook page and For Want Of posted tracks from their new (and fucking awesome) album (Smoke) on soundcloud. Woo Hoo!
LinkHere's the facebook page with tour info (there's also a thread on the forums that's more in depth and with some awesome flyers).

Chaos in Tejas 2012 (& the one time only reunion of Moss Icon)

So unless you don't have a facebook or tumblr, or reach out to other forums (cmhwak thread), then you haven't seen this:

Moss Icon is in there somewhere, actually right by Best Coast (oh hell yeah), click the picture and it'll enlarge. So what does this mean? It means that Moss Icon is reuniting at Chaos in Tejas 2012 for a supposed one time deal. If you thought American Nightmare reuniting was totally cool, then get bent man, Moss Icon is back (for one day/night only).

More info at the Chaos in Tejas website and facebook.

**Also, considering Ryan Gosling made an appearance at the American Nightmare shows, who do you think will show up the Moss Icon/Chaos in Tejas 2012 experience?
