Atlanta power trio Whores just entered Parhelion Studios with producer Ryan Boesch (Helmet, Fu Manchu, Melvins) this week to begin work on a new full-length album due out later this year.
"?We've been working on writing an oppressively heavy record for the last few months here in ATL," says frontman Christian Lembach. "I think I've chained together like a thousand fuzz pedals at this point. Our homie who recorded Clean, Ryan Boesch? (Melvins, Helmet, Fu Manchu, Foo Fighters, etc.), will be manning the helm for us again for the new one, and we're SO ready to blast super hard. Tons of crummy Instagram videos to follow!"
The band has also announced its plans to participate in the 2016 Aftershock this October, playing alongside the likes of Tool, Primus, Deafheaven, and Baroness. The band states: "Beyond flattered to be a part of Aftershock Festival this year. Our life partners in Red Fang played last year, and we're super humbled to be a part of this awesome lineup. Surrounding tour dates will be announced soon."
The upcoming (and yet-to-be titled) new effort, will follow 2013's "Clean" LP. Stay tuned for more info. More...

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" .
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?
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.
