Adelaide’s The Beards want one thing to be abundantly clear… No razors allowed. The quartet, consisting of Nathanial Beard, Facey McStubblington, Johann Beardraven, and John Beardman, Jr. are the world’s foremost ambassadors of beard culture, and missionaries for a more equal and just bearded society.

Winnipeg, Manitoba’s long running rock/hardcore trio KEN Mode are making the rounds in the states right now with Fight Amp and the occasional Today Is The Day in tow, and damn… That’s one heavy ass lineup! Forming around the turn of the millennium, KEN Mode, a self described “Dance Party Killing Machine,” play an extremely loud, noisy, brand of hardcore that’ll shred your eardrums while dimming your world view. Solid stuff!

Drummer Spotlight with Matt Covey @shaihulud @mattcoveydrums @thesuicidedolls @thehempsteadys

Why do drummers have lots of kids?

They’re not too good at the Rhythm Method.

Drummers always get a bum rap. Why is that? Ever seen a good band with a shitty drummer? No. Know why? BECAUSE THEY DON’T FUCKING EXIST.

Drummers rule! We hit stuff, get peoples’ butts shaking, and ultimately determine whether or not the band is going to perform well. You CANNOT have a solid band without a solid drummer, so all you 6-string wankers out there with your tapping and flooded solos can suck it… This one is for the hitters. 

Today, I bring you our own occasional contributor and Shai Hulud hitter (you’re welcome) Matt Covey, a great friend and total pro behind the kit.

Interview with Ricky from BACKTRACK @backtracknyhc @reaperrecords

Long Island, NY’s Backtrack (Reaper Records) has been blazing up the hardcore ranks in recent months. With their near constant touring schedule, youthful energy, and riot-inducing performances, Backtrack’s name is spreading like wildfire across the hardcore community.

And why not? Already given the nod by some of the elite in the game right now (Terror, anyone?), the quintet seems to have more problems sitting still than a young child on Christmas morning. These guys are ALWAYS on tour, and that is exactly the attitude you need to have to build a name for yourself, especially in the underground hardcore music scene.

TREVOR MOORE’S “DRUNK TEXTS TO MYSELF” drops 3/26 on COMEDY CENTRAL RECORDS

Though probably not as funny as the Facebook lashing I received this morning, in response to a comedic counter-suggestion to a blog post stating that lazily dressed men are a “spreading epidemic” across the country (WOW!), TREVOR MOORE is dropping his album, Drunk Texts To Myself, on March 26th via Comedy Central Records (how appropriate.)
