THE REPTILIAN – Winter Tour with Cloud Mouth

THE REPTILIAN is once again taking its unique brand of party math rock on the road, continuing to support its first proper release, Boys’ Life, which was released earlier this year on Count Your Lucky Stars.

While the band will be playing most shows with Cloud Mouth, it will also find itself sharing the stage with the likes of Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate), Victor! Fix The Sun, La Dispute, Joie De Vivre, My Heart To Joy, Loose Lips Sink Ships, Noumenon and Native.

In addition, The Reptilian will make a brief detour for studio time in Rockford, IL, where it will be recording for a 4-way split with labelmates Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate), Annabel and Joie De Vivre. The album will of course be released by Count Your Lucky Stars in 2010.

Listen to “I’ll Ram My Ovipositor Down Your Throat And Lay My Eggs In Your Chest But, I’m Not An Alien!” (Free mp3)

As you can see the band needs some help with shows in certain cities. If you can help out, please email reptilianband520@gmail.com.

Friction Records is pleased to announce that the newest release from Grand Rapids, Michigan’s Victor! Fix The Sun is out today. Person Place Or Thing is the follow-up to the band’s well-received debut, Retractable Claws. The album is available as an LP with a free digital download code. Friction has pressed 500 copies of the 12″ (250 / amber, 250 / maroon).

To grab a copy, go here.

Honing their skills to a sharp razor’s edge, Victor! Fix The Sun has set out to up the ante. The band balances harshness and noise with ever-so-slight shades of melody. With careful attention to detail and the subtle dynamicss, Person Place Or Thing is a striking deviation from the noise rock norm. You can call it hard-nosed math rock or angular post-rock but either way, the band is throwing out huge riffs that echo magnificently over the its powerful vocal assault. Consider yourself confronted.

Listen to My Friend The Guru (free mp3).

Last but not least the band will be playing an LP release show tonight in Grand Rapids, Michigan at the Intersection Front Room. Native, Grown Ups and Bars Of Gold, which feature ex-members of Bear Vs. Shark, are slated to join in on the musical celebration

Beginning tomorrow, Dave House (Kingston, UK) will embark on a 17-day tour of the US in support of his latest full-length, Intersections. The record is the third solo effort from the bassist of the recently defunct British punk band, The Steal.

Released on CD earlier this summer in the UK by Banquet Records, Intersections is now receiving a proper stateside release from up-and-coming indie, Runner Up Records. The label will press a 12″ LP version of the album on coke bottle clear (300) and mixed marble colored (200) vinyl. To pre-order a copy now, go here.

Intersections will see an official release date of November 24th, although pre-orders will ship well before that. House will have copies for sale on tour as well.
