Isis

ISIS_logoIsis have sat on a video for the track ‘Pliable Foe‘ for a few years, until now. It’s been over two and a half years since the band split up officially in May 2010, but the full production for the track that is lifted from the “Temporal” album was posted online last night.

Watch it here and hope they reform at some point.

Dag Nasty to reform, Rites of Spring to release demos

ritesofspring_dischordFunny things are a happening in Washington DC right now. Following the news this week that Dag Nasty have reformed (the original ‘Can I Say’ line up), Dischord Records have announced that they have re-issued the original Rites of Spring demos.

All of this has come, no doubt from the forthcoming ‘Salad Days’ documentary that is currently being put together by Scott Crawford in the US, a film neding funding for completion right now but is much anticpated in the hardcore scene.

Dag Nasty will play on 28th December at the Black Cat venue in Washington and the Rites of Spring demos that were released on casette only in 1984 will get its first official release on October 23rd from the Dischord website.

At The Drive In, Firehose & Refused reform for Coachella

The Coachella Music Festival in the US announced its line up this morning with various British bands such as Florence and the Machine, Madness, Noel Gallagher, Madness and others confirmed to play on the bill in April. The biggest surprise though was the addition of three bands who have reformed this week. LA’s At The Drive In are officially ‘operational’ so says their twitter account this morning. Mike Watt’s Firehose have been added to the bill but not officially mentioned their new plans and Refused are back and are excited to ‘see you in the pit’ from a statement over night.

The festival will take place over 2 weekends in April (13th-15th and 20th-22th) in Indio, California. Fingers crossed these bands all have plans to visit the UK for Reading, Sonisphere or Download this summer. Watch this space.
