The Static Age will re-release their debut album “Neon Nights Electric Lives” on vinyl for the first time via Highwires.
To be released by Deathwish Inc. Records on March 20th.

Singer Noam talks about the struggle of creating Repent. Repeat, the ideas behind the record, the new found urgency and the recording plans with Kurt Ballou.
4 track EP on Run For Cover Records out in January and a video for the new song Damp streaming now.
Daylight is streaming The Difference In Good And Bad Dreams EP out on Run For Cover Records.

The details of their second LP “Nothing Violates This Nature”, coming this summer via Southern Lord.

Not the quality one would expect from the BBC, but still nice to hear Converge live.
I almost forgot about this interview with the singer of Rise And Fall. It’s another one from the vault, another one originally intended for issue #2.
A goodbye party for Herder singer Nico. A tale about garlic, bad sounds and positive spirits.
