Brooklyn hardcore/mathcore outfit Tiger Flowers have released the details surrounding their upcoming EP. The EP, which follows their 2014 Dead Hymns full-length, will be titled The Vicious Heart and will be released on June 23 via Still Water Recordings. The four-track EP was recorded at Converse Rubber Tracks by Matthew Shane and at Backroom Studios by Kevin Antreassian, whom also handled all mixing and mastering duties. Frontman Jesse James Madre commented on the upcoming release:
San Antonio’s Illustrations recently premiered a new track from their forthcoming album, Acts of God, via Metal Sucks. Titled “Harrowed End”, the new track from the Texas act shows them drifting into surprising territory. The track features a moody assault of the band’s typical blackened hardcore stylings, mixed with atmospheric, almost “proggy” characteristics. Check it out after the break.
Acts of God will be released on May 26.
A band known to many. A band singular in vision and unity. A band willing to expand and ebb and flow and mix genres. A band that helps others express themselves artistically through their record label Neurot. A band whose individuals members have the same vision, integrity, and strength as the whole does. ( They have a fucking back patch that says “strength and vision” for fuck’s sake).
Steve Von Till, like the band he is part of, needs no introduction, but I’ll give a little one: he is the co-guitarist and co-vocalist of the band mentioned above, and like every other member of the band, he has side project(s) that are his vision of music, catharsis, and expression. Harvestman is the side that loves drone, ambiance, psychedelia and folk, as shown, once again, on the new album “Music for Megaliths.”
