Guelph, Ontario based hardcore/grind act Drudgery has streamed their entire debut album, "Rust," online at the band's MySpace page. The album will be released through Year of the Sun Records on July 15th, 2008.
"One of the ultimate goals for any band is for as many people to hear the music as possible, and in this day and age it's great how easy it is to be able to make your material so accessible to the listeners," says drummer Matt Connell. "We worked really hard on ‘Rust', from the writing stages, to the last stages of the recording process, and wound up making a disc that we feel delivers some pretty raw and adrenaline pumping grind. We're stoked for people to check it out."
Drudgery is the new project spearheaded by drummer Matt Connell (Fuck The Facts, Exhumed) and features ex-Dear Black Diary bassist Steve Ferraro on vocals. The group's debut EP was recorded at Frozen Solid Studios in Guelph, Ontario by Matt Connell.

Guitarist Ian Sturgill, of Success Will Write Apocalypse Across the Sky, recently explained the cancellation of their upcoming tour with PSYOPUS, WAR FROM A HARLOTS MOUTH and FUCK THE FACTS:
"Recording delays have stretched our scheduling far into August and there is no way that we'll be able to make this tour rehearsed and ready to kick ass. 'The Grand Partition and the Abrogation of Idolatry' is our dominating obligation. The album must come first.
"We really regret missing this tour... amazing bands, amazing fans; we will be kicking ourselves in the dick once for each day of this tour that we couldn't perform on.
"The new lineup may be ready to perform live when the tour makes it's way through Florida in the beginning of September. We want to make damned sure that you people are getting your money's worth out of a S.W.W.A.A.T.S. show. We appreciate your understanding and continued support!"
The first installment of the S.W.W.A.A.T.S. studio videography should be available next week via grindingtheapparatus.net, metalinjection.net, and youtube.com/SWWAATSTube.

Rochester, NY-based tech grindcore/hardcore outfit PSYOPUS has issued the following update:
"We at the PSYOPUS camp feel like real dousche bags but, we are sorry to explain to you that we are going to have to drop off of our Canadian dates with TODAY IS THE DAY, FUCK THE FACTS and COMPLETE FAILURE. Here's the story:"
"Back in January, PSYOPUS was kept from crossing the border for our small January tour. The reason started with the fact Arpmandude (Christopher Arp, guitar) has an attempted criminal mischief in the fourh conviction from 2001, and a violation of probation in 2002 where he served a month in jail. This was a flag warning for a bitch of a bitch of a bitch immigration woman who decided that Arpmandude was a 'risk to Canada.'" More...
