This April, Earth and Wolves in the Throne Room are teaming up for a short tour of the west coast. They will be joined by cellist Lori Goldston, who will also be part of Earth’s live band during the tour.
Earth will be performing some material from their next full-length album, which should be out some time early next year on Southern Lord.
I can tell you that Earth are fantastic live, and seeing them perform new music as part of their set will be a special treat. I’ve yet to see Wolves in the Throne Room live, but if they’re half as good live as they are on record then you won’t want to miss them. Continue reading
Southern Lord have lowered the prices of all the CDs in their webstore!
“Times are rough and so are our riffs,” says The Lord, but they still want you to get all the doom you want.
Most of their (single disc) CDs are now $10, some even less.
Double disc album and CD/Shirt package prices have also been reduced.
Click here to go to the Southern Lord webstore and stock up on all the doom you can get your hands on before they decide to stop being so generous.
Southern Lord have announced their newest addition to their arsenal of bands, Italy’s The Secret. After two albums for Goodfellow Records and several line up changes since their inception in Trieste, Italy in 2003, The Secret will enter Godcity Studio in Salem, MA with producer Kurt Ballou (Converge, Cave In, Torche) this April to record their third album, Solve et Coagula, for Southern Lord Records.
I think this has been going on for a little while now, but seeing as it’s still going on and you might not know about it, I think it’s post-worthy. Southern Lord’s European distributor moved warehousing facilities and apparently found a bunch of out of stock/out of print stuff lying around in the process. So, Southern Lord are giving these doom relics to you for the low price of $7.

Also, Ascend’s Ample Fire Within album has been released as a 180 gram double vinyl set which comes with two non-CD tracks. It looks like this is the exact same version of Ample Fire Within that comes in the Southern Lord Vinyl Subscription Series.

Here is something cool for all you vinyl elitists. Southern Lord are offering a vinyl subscription service where pay a one-time fee then receive a new Southern Lord vinyl release in the mail every 4-6 weeks. The first six albums have been announced and there is also a seventh “surprise” record, which I’m sure is tempting at least a few of us a little more than the first six.
Here are the six that have been announced:
1.) Black Cobra – Chronomega (contains non-CD bonus track and cover of Buzz-Oven – “Behaved”)
2.) Ascend – Ample Fire Within (contains 2 non-CD bonus tracks, Mccoy Tyner – “Desert Cry” cover, + side-long drone piece “Fenrir Ondi Ahman”)
3.) Pelican – What We All Come to Need 2xLP (contains 3 non-CD bonus tracks on side 4)
