Sorority Noise Announce Split With The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die

For two bands who had an amazing 2015, with the release of two of the greatest albums of last year, Sorority Noise and The World Is A Beautiful Place… clearly have no intentions of slowing down. So far this year they have both released EP’s and are getting ready to release a new split through Triple Crown Records.

Discomfort And False Light Announce Split

Italian/British hybrid band Discomfort have announced they will be releasing a split alongside South Carolina’s False Light.

The release comes courtesy of Assurd Records (Italy), Epidemic Records (Italy), Eastrain Records (France) and Headfirst Records (USA), which is a bit of a technical marvel but surely only shows how good this is going to be.

Both bands are fully into the beatdown/sludge scene so if you’re into that, they’re definitely two to check out in advance of this release.

The record will be out on vinyl at the end of July, though a specific date has not yet been set.
