// Coalesce tour, new release


As has been rumored, Coalesce will indeed be touring in August. Additionally, the group has also announced plans to release a new 7", titled "Salt and Passage," on September 11th. The current line-up of the band is: Jes Steineger, Nathan Richardson, Nathan Ellis, and Sean Ingram.

Regarding, their intentions, etc., the group comments: "Instead of looking at Coalesce as a second career or some ego-stroking project to prove something within modern music, it is being held closely and personally by the members as their time to put aside familial duties, work, school, or whatnot, and simply 'do it.' In short, we just want to hang out together again and play our shows out of a peculiar love for doing so (in all it's ugly purity)... Please let us make it very clear that this is not a 'reunion' tour in any way shape or form. Since it's simply the nature of coalesce to come and go as it pleases, terms like 'reunion' make no sense when applied to it."

The upcoming tour will feature support from Daughters, See You Next Tuesday (on the East Coast), and This Is My Condition (in the Midwest). Here are the dates:

8/15 Worcester, MA @ The Palladium
8/16 Philadelphia, PA @ First Unitarian Church
8/17 New York, NY @ Knitting Factory
8/18 Baltimore, MD @ Ottobar
8/19 Richmond, VA @ Alley Katz
8/20 Pittsburgh, PA @ Lawrenceville Moose
8/21 Detroit, MI @ Magic Stick
8/22 Chicago, IL @ TBA
8/23 Iowa City, IA @ Picador
8/24 Omaha, NE @ Sokol Underground
8/25 Lawrence, KS @ Bottleneck

// Cannibal Corpse, Black Dahlia Murder, etc. tour

Ice T and Chris Barnes being hella scary

There is also friction between Barnes and vocalist of Anal Cunt, Seth Putnam. According to Putnam's website, Seth heckled Barnes during the SFU set, leading to an altercation between the two, with Barnes' roadies/friends attacking Putnam. Putnam released the song, "Chris Barnes is a Pussy" as retaliation to the incident. -Wikipedia
