2. Baby Teeth
3. Participation Trophy

Whores Streaming "Baby Teeth"

Atlanta power trio Whores just debuted a new single titled "Baby Teeth" today taken off forthcoming LP "Gold."

"'Baby Teeth' is one of my favorite songs on 'Gold,'" says vocalist/guitarist Christian Lembach. "Donnie and I had that big intro note and feedback part forever before we could find the right crusher riff in threes to pair it with. It's one of the first songs that we recorded, and I knew we were onto something special the first time I heard all the feedback in the control room. Lots of yelling, lots of feedback. It's kind of our thing."

Whores will release Gold on October 28th, 2016 via Entertainment One (eOne). The band will join Torche in supporting Red Fang later this fall. Dates will kick off on November 18th at Slim's in San Francisco, spanning coast to coast before wrapping up at the Wonder Ballroom in Portland on December 17th.

"Red Fang and Torche are both huge inspirations, and we're flattered to be a part of this amazing tour," says Lembach. "Imminent tacos to follow." More...

SXSW 2014 Day Three: Dio Tribute, Metalsucks

Friday, March 14, 2014, my third day attending SXSW music festivities, started just after 3 pm. This event was my only excursion outside of live music. Members of Landshark Promotions and DJ Chuck Loesch of 101X "No Control Radio" premiered a CD of the Ronnie James Dio tribute album "This Is Your Life." The three-person panel presented each track from the forthcoming recording featuring an all-star lineup of modern and classic metal artists. It felt good singing along to these majestic reworkings done in the name of charity. 100% of the proceeds will go towards Wendy Dio's "Ronnie James Dio Stand Up And Shout Cancer Fund" .

Rabbits And Whores Streaming Split

East (Coast) meets West (Coast) in noise rock: Whores and Rabbits joined together in misanthropy and misery. And what better material to manifest their unwavering rage than that of The Cure?

Whores crushes "Jumping Someone Else's Train," taking said train on a insanely heavy ride, the main riff stretched into a hypnotic groove forever beat into your brain. Rabbits opens with the stark "A Reflection" before cranking out an uncaged, claustrophobic version of "Give Me It." Who let these maniacs out?

You can stream the Whores / Rabbits split below, courtesy of Cvlt Nation. More...

Whores Streaming Debut EP

Atlanta band Whores has a new five-song EP out titled "Ruiner" on Brutal Panda records. In the group bio, the band members state "We were in other bands. Now we're in this band. Soon we will all be deaf." This pretty much sums up the band's sound, which is neolithic sludge/punk rock that fans of the Melvins or Jesus Lizard will identify with. Stream the EP "Ruiner" at this location or below.
