Heavy metal and punk rock go head to head on this split EP from two of Essex’s loudest bands, The Tickturds and Osmium Guillotine, which was released on August 26th. The EP features five tracks, including a brand new song Imitators, co-written and co-performed by all members from both bands and the result is a metal/punk crossover, featuring four vocalists, three lead guitarists, two bass player and one drummer. Also on the record are two tracks from each band, a couple of original songs, Wasteland Warriors 2099 by Osmium Guillotine, and Pointless by The Tickturds, and a cover of each other band’s songs, one punked up metal song, City of Chaos and one metalled up punk song, Mr Angry.
Minnesota’s Buildings and Milwaukee’s Volunteer have been hard at work in their respective cities, each crafting their distinct brand of dissonance over the course of the last few years. Triple Eye Industries is happy to announce that on August 26 they will release a split EP featuring brand new material from both acts. Since the release of the Goner EP in 2014, Volunteer has evolved, they’ve added Kevin DeMars on drums, and former drummer Mark Sheppard has moved to guitar, Volunteer is at its strongest in 2016. Their side of the split finds them at their angriest and most aggressive, with bigger guitars, tighter rhythms and furious vocals. Buildings make their Triple Eye Industries debut with their three offerings on the split. Much like Volunteer, Buildings have also experienced a slight line up change with the recent addition of bassist Mike Baillie. Their side of the split contains the band’s best material to date, while showcasing what the band does best: Pushing the sonic boundaries of what a trio can create. The songs contained here are as hectic as they are sparse and don’t let up from start to finish.

Chicago, IL’s Sleep On It has signed to Equal Vision Records. The band will release a new EP, Lost Along the Way, on October 21, 2016 through the label. The EP was recorded with producers Seth Henderson (Real Friends, Knuckle Puck) and Derek DiScanio (State Champs). Vocalist Zech Pluister comments:
“Over the course of the last year we have all experienced a lot of loss in different ways… friendships fading, relationships ending, loss of family members. All of the songs on this release have something to do with wanting to be remembered, missing someone, and questioning the losses we’ve all been through in some way or another.”
