Windhand & Cough Announce Spring 2017 Australia / New Zealand Tour

Posted in Whathaveyou on December 21st, 2016 by JJ Koczan

Well, I mean, yeah. Clearly. Labelmates, both from Richmond, both with three records out, sharing a bassist, etc. — it seems only reasonable that if either Windhand or Cough were going to undertake the rather significant voyage from the US East Coast to tour Australia and New Zealand that the other would go along as well. Though they’re certainly distinguishable in sound, they could hardly have more circumstantially in common if they were the same band. Logic wins the day. Spock would be pleased.

Windhand go supporting 2015’s Grief’s Infernal Flower (review here), while Cough head abroad to herald 2016’s Still They Pray (review here). It’s hardly the first international trip for either band — both of whom were also recently confirmed to play Psycho Las Vegas 2017 — but should be a good time nonetheless. Who doesn’t like to travel with friends?

Shows are presented by Life is Noise, who sent the following down the PR wire:

windhand and cough

LIFE IS NOISE PRESENTS: WINDHAND (USA) & COUGH (USA) AUSTRALIAN / NEW ZEALAND TOUR MARCH/APRIL 2017

LIFE IS NOISE is excited to announce that two powerhouses of American doom metal—Windhand and their spiritual kin Cough—will be heading to our shores in 2017.

These label-mates from Virginia will be melting minds at select venues throughout Australia and New Zealand as part of a massive doom double-header in March and April next year.

Windhand

The rise of Windhand has been meteoric. Since first surfacing in 2009, this Virginia five-piece quickly outgrew their local underground ties to tour the globe with acts like Sleep, High On Fire, Dead Meadow and Kvelertak. And their third full length, Grief’s Infernal Flower, cemented the band as one of the doom masters of our time.

Grief’s Infernal Flower is the epitome of fuzzed-out bliss. Simultaneously massive, heavy and deeply personal, the haunting and hypnotic vocals of Dorthia Cottrell serve to guide the listener through the dual riff attack of guitarists Garrett Morris and Asechiah Bogdan.

Windhand live are a lesson in rhythmic mastery. Propelling through the slowest of songs, with the subtle expertise of bassist Parker Chandler and drummer Ryan Wolfe as their backbone, no one will be able to defy the pure need to headbang in their presence.

Cough

Cough rose from the fertile metal swamps of Richmond, Virginia to produce some of the most intense, tortured and misanthropic doom out. Drawing from savage elements of extreme music, the past decade has seen the band inspired by everything from early black metal and sludge tones to psychedelia, doom’s early genre forefathers, blues and more—all in their search for beauty in the darkest of places.

Now they have returned after a five-year hiatus with the monolithic beast that is Still They Pray.

Produced by Electric Wizard’s Jus Oborn, Still They Pray is a recording that takes the listener to the depths of despair and longing. With comparisons to seminal acts like Candlemass, Cathedral, Sleep and Saint Vitus, their third full length is 70-minutes of crushing defeat and euphoric redemption.

Catch Windhand and Cough at any of the following dates:

Wellington – San Fran – March 31
Auckland – Kings Arms – April 1
Brisbane – Crowbar – April 2
Sydney – Newtown – April 5
Adelaide – Fowlers Live – April 6
Melbourne – Corner Hotel – April 7
Perth – Badlands – April 8

Psycho Las Vegas 2017 Makes Massive Lineup Announcement; Slo Burn, Vhöl, Pelican, Chelsea Wolfe, Melvins and Many More Added

Posted in Whathaveyou on December 17th, 2016 by JJ Koczan

Take a deep breath before you dive into the new lineup announcement from Psycho Las Vegas 2017. With 35-plus bands added, it officially qualifies as huge, and considering who those bands are — Slo Burn for a US-exclusive, plus bringing over the likes of Elephant Tree to play alongside SummonerHollow LegGatecreeper and others — it can be a lot to take in. If you haven’t had a meal yet today, you might want to eat something. Make sure you’re hydrated. Basically I want to avoid anyone fainting as a result of reading the list of bands. If you’re sensitive to flashing lights… you’re probably okay. But otherwise, check to see you have something soft to land on nearby, should you need it.

I missed Psycho this year owing to a new job and a general lack of funds. I’m not sure I can do the same in 2017. This one might just be a gotta-go kind of scenario. Fuckin’ Slomatics are gonna be there.

There are still more than 40 bands to announce, including headliners, whose names will be out at random points over the next 30 days.

Jeebus.

To the PR wire:

psycho las vegas 2017

Psycho Las Vegas 2017

August 18, 2017 – August 20, 2017
Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Las Vegas

Psycho Las Vegas today announces over 35 new additions to its massive 2017 lineup. The festival has quickly become the premier event in the US for underground heavy rock, psych, doom, alternative and beyond, and as the roster grows for this year’s edition, they’re clearly looking to push their boundaries even further.

Headliners remain TBA, but joining previously-announced generation-defining acts like Neurosis, Swans and French prog lords Magma, come UK grind legends Carcass, whose reunion continues to bring gruesome tales of dissections and unparalleled.

They’ll be in good company with Norwegian black metal legend Abbath, formerly of Immortal, who released a raging self-titled debut album under his own name this year, New York’s Myrkur, whose own debut, M, disrupted black metal genre convention on nearly every level, and USBM innovators Wolves in the Throne Room, who continue to refine a style they helped establish more than a decade ago.

Look for the Melvins to boggle brains with their brand of heavy rock – still unique unto itself after more than three decades – as well as for the new project Crystal Fairy with Buzzo and Dale from the Melvins, Omar Rodriguez-Lopez (Mars Volta) and Teri Gender Bender (Le Butcherettes) to bring to life their debut album, which releases in February on Ipecac Recordings.

This latest announcement also brings sludge-laden chaos from the pair of Weedeater and Buzzov*en, and Chelsea Wolfe to emit a darkness that even Las Vegas in the summer won’t be able to hold at bay.

The reunited Slo Burn (vocalist John Garcia’s first project post-Kyuss) will play an exclusive US show at Psycho, and a special highlight performance from psych-jazz legend Mulatu Astatke is open eyes, ears and minds alike as he celebrates a career spanning more than 50 years.

Also added have been long-running mischief-makers Murder City Devils, alt-rock legends Echo and the Bunnymen, progressive thrashers Vhöl (members of YOB and Agalloch), Pelican, Cult of Luna, Psychic TV, and as it did with the landmark 2016 edition, the fest digs deep into the heavy rock underground once again to unearth the best of up-and-coming bands from the States and beyond. Along with the already confirmed riff-crushers Windhand, Blood Ceremony, Slomatics and Domkraft, Elephant Tree (UK) have signed on alongside fellow fest-newcomers Khemmis, Sumac, Gatecreeper, Snail, North, Cult Leader, Hollow Leg, Summoner, Floorian, Wizard Rifle, Merlin and Morne.

Further lineup announcements will follow in the New Year — including headliners — so stay tuned for more from the best and biggest heavy festival the US has ever seen.

Psycho Las Vegas 2017: First Bands Announced

Posted in Whathaveyou on November 18th, 2016 by JJ Koczan

And so it seems Psycho Las Vegas has found its home. What’s very quickly become a major presence in the US festival scene — certainly the biggest heavy underground fest happening in the country — will take place for the second year in 2017 at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. Since the inception of Psycho Fest as Psycho de Mayo (think “Cinco de Mayo”) in Southern California and certainly through the last two years of Psycho California and this summer’s first Psycho Las Vegas, probably the most glaring name missing from the lineup has been Neurosis. Where’s Neurosis? Every band on the planet but Neurosis. And so on.

Couldn’t be more fitting then that as Psycho Las Vegas 2017 makes its first lineup announcements, not only Neurosis should be found in the batch, but their progenitors and forebears in Swans as well, who should by then be wrapping their tenure or working with a different lineup. Also note the continued commitment to bringing in international acts with Slomatics, Domkraft and Abbath, and the continuing affinity for primo doom that shows itself with Windhand and Blood Ceremony.

Next lineup announcement is in December. I think by the time they’re done, Psycho Las Vegas will have outdone itself again with 2017.

From the ticket page:

psycho-las-vegas-2017-first-announcement

Psycho Las Vegas 2017

August 18, 2017 – August 20, 2017

** Full lineup + headliners, VIP passes and additional venue information announced in December. **

If you purchased a ticket today you will have access to the pre-party on Thursday at the Paradise Pool. Due to the capacity limit at the Paradise Pool, the pre-party on Thursday is limited to the first 2500 Psychos who purchase a 3 day pass. In order to relieve confusion, we have created a third tier for tickets. If you purchase a Psycho Special, Tier 1 or Tier 2 ticket, you will have guaranteed access to the pre-party on Thursday.

If you purchase a Tier 3 ticket (these are the same price as Tier 2 and will become available after the Tier 2 tickets are sold out) you will unfortunately not have access to the pre-party on Thursday. Bring your floaties.

Windhand Announce East Coast Shows for December

Posted in Whathaveyou on August 29th, 2016 by JJ Koczan

At this point, one almost receives an email with a subject announcing a Windhand tour and expects it to list a month-plus of dates. That’s kind of just how the Virginian outfit have operated for the last couple years — already they’ve put in considerable time supporting last fall’s Jack Endino-produced Grief’s Infernal Flower (review here) — but this time around it’s just a handful of gigs for December alongside Relapse Records labelmate extremists Ilsa that will take them as far north from Richmond as the Saint Vitus Bar in Brooklyn before they head back, a quick run of pre-holiday dates.

Maybe they’re testing out new material ahead of 2017? Maybe they’re taking a victory lap for Grief’s Infernal Flower? Or maybe they just feel like getting out and doing a couple nights to wrap the year. Can hardly hold it against them either way.

The PR wire has details and a couple September shows as well:

Freak Valley 2016: Windhand Added to Lineup

Posted in Whathaveyou on March 21st, 2016 by JJ Koczan

Richmond doom forerunners Windhand released their third album, Grief’s Infernal Flower (review here), last fall via Relapse, and thereby continued the steamroller momentum they’ve had going for the last several years thanks to near-constant touring and a massive response to their studio output. It seems this summer will take them back to Europe, as they’ve been confirmed for Freak Valley 2016 in Netphen, Germany, and I’d imagine that will be one of many dates on a tour, since it’s Windhand and that’s kind of how they do. Haven’t seen a full announcement of that yet, but will keep an eye out.

Until then, the fest unveiled this badass poster by Mr. Frumpy (also of Seedy Jeezus) and confirmed their taking part thusly:

freak valley 2016 windhand

WINDHAND are one of the best psychedelic, monolithic and heavy doom bands around. That’s why they will play FREAK VALLEY FESTIVAL 2016 !!

For a band who traffic in measured, unhurried riffage, Richmond’s Windhand have moved awfully quickly over the last few years. Founded in 2009, the VA quintet have been making waves since the release of their 2010 practice space demo, a two-track CD that garnered the band comparisons to artists like Electric Wizard, The Devil’s Blood, and Black Sabbath.

Take your time for Windhand and let them hypnotize you with their trippy, drawn-out and repetitive riffs deeply drenched in fuzz.

WINDHAND released their third full-length, Grief’s Infernal Flower, in 2015, a multifaceted slab of thundering stoner doom that Noisey has called “doom metal’s most anticipated album of the year.” It is massive, heavy, and personal, a modern testament to the power of doom and stoner metal’s legacies.

Frontwoman Dorthia Cottrell firmly establishes herself as one of the best vocalists of the genre by perfectly balancing beauty with enormous power, and the twin-guitar attack of Garrett Morris and Asechiah Bogdan weaves together nine songs of perfect riffs and fuzzed-out bliss. That often-delicate splendor is all tempered by the colossal rhythmic mastery of bassist Parker Chandler and drummer Ryan Wolfe, whose lower-register expertise serves as the backbone of the new record. Though the first two WINDHAND albums were underground classics, Grief’s Infernal Flower stands to see WINDHAND cementing themselves as one of the premier metal bands of our time.

Dorthia Cottrell Announces Solo Shows

Posted in Whathaveyou on January 1st, 2016 by JJ Koczan

Windhand vocalist Dorthia Cottrell has a couple of solo dates booked beginning this weekend in Virginia en route to Texas over the course of the next week. Her eponymous solo album was released last year (2015) on Forcefield Records, and found her reveling in classic dark Americana forms, a moody atmosphere pervading original and covered material while her hypnotic croon that has proved such an enduring part of Windhand‘s appeal remained at the core. To the best of my knowledge, the vinyl of the album is gone, but you can still get it on CD if you, like me, retain an affection for the oft-maligned format.

And of course, the Richmond-based Windhand released their third album this past fall in the form of the Jack Endino-produced Grief’s Infernal Flower (review here), the oppressive atmosphere of which was given breadth by the acoustic tracks “Sparrow” and “Aition,” each positioned as a landmark to round out a half of the record. Windhand has toured the country and beyond several times over, and barring some shift it seems likely 2016 would continue that thread, but Cottrell‘s solo shows are somewhat rarer, so if you happen to be in her path, keep that in mind. I was fortunate enough to catch her at Vultures of Volume II (review here) in September, and zero regrets.

Plus, she’s bringing her dog on the road. Dates follow:

SURPRISE! Ryan and Delilah and I are heading to Texas to hang out with some friends and I’m playing a few shows on the way down, low key like! Come see us and pet our dog in the following places:

Windhand Post New Video for “Two Urns”; Headlining Tour Starts this Week

Posted in Bootleg Theater on October 20th, 2015 by JJ Koczan

windhand (Photo by Jordan Vance)

Like most Halloweens, the one depicted in Windhand‘s new video for “Two Urns” starts out with some innocent trick-or-treating and TP’ing houses and winds up in murder. Don’t act like you’ve never been there. The Virginian doom forerunners will head out this week — tomorrow, by golly — on a headlining tour to support their third album, the newly-released Grief’s Infernal Flower (review here), and the timing on a Halloween-themed video is eerily good, what, uh, with… Halloween… coming up — do I really need to explain that?

Point is Windhand have their shit together. The album proved that well enough, and as the five-piece move into headlining bigger stretches in bigger venues, that can only continue to serve them. Starting and ending on the East Coast, the stint alongside Danava and Monolord will make a stop at Night of the Shred on Halloween night, and hits just about every other choice market in the States either before or after, so kudos. They’ve busted their collective ass on the road the last several years to get to this point, and one hopes this tour goes well and leads to more. That’s what the work is for, right? More work? So yeah, keep it rolling.

Video and tour dates follow:

Headlining North American Tour Kicks Off This Week

Windhand share a new evil video just in time for Halloween. The story goes: It’s Halloween, 1987. Four best friends are out trick-or-treating on their BMXs. Four older bullies in a muscle car have an appetite for something more sinister than candy.

Windhand’s headlining North American Tour kicks off next week with Danava and Monolord. Highlights include NYC’s Gramercy Ballroom, Chicago’s Empty Bottle, LA’s Roxy, San Diego’s Night of the Shred, Fun Fun Fun Fest and more – full list of dates below.

Night of the Shred Set for Oct. 31; The Shrine, Windhand, Bang!, Elder, Danava, Wo Fat, Monolord and Black Bombaim to Play

Posted in Whathaveyou on October 12th, 2015 by JJ Koczan

Day of the Shred is dead. Long live Night of the Shred. Well, I don’t know about “dead,” but at very least not happening this year. Thief Presents, the promoter for the Night/Day fest who also put on Psycho California earlier this year, announced a couple weeks ago that Day of the Shred was off due to poor ticket sales, but the result is that Night of the Shred will happen as a standalone event and the lineup for Brick by Brick in San Diego on Halloween night is pretty impressive in itself. Eight bands on the bill, and it runs for 11 hours, so presumably they’ll all have a good amount of time to play, and in addition to being a stop on the Windhand/Monolord tour, the night will also feature The ShrineBangElderWo Fat and Portugal’s Black Bombaim. There are a bunch of shows that have sort of popped up in the wake of Day of the Shred being nixed (more on that shortly), but the good news is that even though that fest isn’t happening, many of the bands have found ways to make the most of the situation.

Southern California will not suffer from a lack of doom or heavy rock and roll. The PR wire brings details.
