Vancouver, BC, Canada 2 piece stoner thrashers HEDKS are just fine with musically dismantling audiences whether it be at an impromptu protest, theater, booze can, parade, or basement. Claire Carreras (guitar/vocals, also known as Twitch) and Taya Fraser (drums, also known as Taser) are long-standing fixtures of the Pacific north west’ prolific punk rock enclave. HEDKS has spent much of 2017 touring and playing festivals and is crossing the pond for a European Tour in late September/early October. Fellow local rain forest punk rock outfit BRASS will be joining them. For Twitch this equates to two shows an evening as she plays bass in BRASS as well. Svbterranean got an opportunity to catch up with Twitch before she leaves for Europe in the fall.
Trap Them have apparently decided to call it a day according to a recent Facebook post. No statement was released regarding their disbandment, just a photo that shows the dates of their final three shows which can be seen below.

Noise rock legends Unsane have released a new track from their highly-anticipated forthcoming album, Sterilize, which is due out on September 29 via Southern Lord. The new track, titled “Aberration”, is true blue Unsane with its gritty, metallic sound. The band said of the track:
“‘Aberration’ is classic Unsane, raw and direct, it only took a couple of takes to lock it down. It’s essentially a ditty about the swirling thoughts that go through your head after being screwed over. I’m sure anyone can appropriate or relate it to their personal experiences.”
Check out the track after the break along with the band’s upcoming European tour dates.
New York-based post-black metal outfit Black Table have announced a string of U.S. tour dates for the fall in support of their 2016 full-length, Obelisk.

The full schedule can be found after the break.
Stockholm mathcore/grind outfit God Mother have announced the release of their sophomore full-length album. The record, which follows 2015’s Maktbehov, will be titled Vilseledd and will be released on September 29 via Party Smasher, Inc. Label founder and The Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Ben Weinman said this of the band:
“After 20 years of touring the world and playing thousands of shows with thousands of bands, it is hard to impress me. But Sweden has done it again. God Mother is an undeniable force majeure that demands attention like bands did in the old days, by just being that fucking good. Torch, officially passed!”
