Hammer No More the Fingers US/UK TOUR 03/31/2011
HNMtF's 'Black Shark' drops on April 5th, and the band will tour both sides of the Atlantic in its wake. "'Black Shark' goes for the jugular," says The Daily Tar Heel, "a barrage of relentless hooks and breakdowns that still retain their vibrance after multiple listens. [...] It’s rare that a band can unify the visceral with the intellectual, but Hammer makes it look easy, as authoritative and aggressive as an underwater predator."
Black Shark Tour:
Apr 01 - Motorco Music Hall - Durham, NC
Apr 06 - The Red Palace - Washington, DC
Apr 07 - Metro Gallery -... More >

Future Islands are three young NC men living in Baltimore, MD and now signed to Thrill Jockey Records. You can find them in a smelly van, hanging around guys like Dan Deacon.

Now available for the first time on vinyl from 307 Knox Records is 2008's Wave Like Home - and just in is the band's limited edition purple split 7" with Dan Deacon.

Misery Index announce US, Australia, NZ tour dates 03/11/2010
Baltimore-based Misery Index has thrashed and penetrated our senses over the last 9 years, with 4 albums and 7 EPs under their belt. Not only do their riveting, primitive vocals rip into your eardrums like a predator after its kill, but, with their support of leftist and anarchic ideals, the band's urgent, politically driven lyrics leave an impression on the consious.
'Pulling Out The Nails,' the new discography on Anarchos Records, documents the evolution of the band's innovative, technical sound with 30 non-album tracks and a 24 page booklet. Misery Index... More >
The Hold Steady announce tour w/ The Oranges Band 03/11/2010
Described as “unstoppable” (New York Times) and “humid arena rock, a high-pressure system of cresting guitars and pianos” (Los Angeles Times), and lauded as “one of the best bands in America” (Paste Magazine), The Hold Steady has announced its April tour dates.
We are excited to announce that the band’s entire tour will feature The Oranges Band providing support.

Cornel West Theory 01/26/2010
Dr. Cornel West is a Princeton professor who is as prolific as he is controversial. His writings and teachings cover an enormous range of social issues and are not bound by political correctness or traditional thought.
And with West's blessing, the progressive hip hop band the Cornel West Theory has adopted his name to highlight the similarities. Dr. West spoke fluently on topics ranging from religion to politics, just as the band aims to do. Their music's mission is "to deliver hip-hop that contains deep substance and content, music which forces self-analysis... More >
