Poland's ANTIGAMA has announced a number of European tour dates. ANTIGAMA will begin this run of tour dates in Germany. From there they hook up with label mates FUCK THE FACTS from Canada and the Dutch Grind-core band Dr. Doom. A listing of confirmed ANTIGAMA tour dates can be found below with more to be announced soon.
ANTIGAMA's upcoming album "Warning" is set for an early March 2009 international release via Relapse Records. ANTIGAMA's "Resonance" follow-up was recorded in their hometown Warsaw at Progresja Sound Studio, with producer Szymon Czech (Third Degree, Nyia, Vesania, Unsun).
Guitarist Sebastian comments to the tour: "...we are happy to go on the road across Europe with Fuck the Facts and dr.Doom. They're great bands and nice people too so there should be a lot of fun.

Canada's FUCK THE FACTS have announced a number of European tour dates in support of their 2008 release "Disgorge Mexico." Fuck the facts will join up with label mates ANTIGAMA from Poland and the Dutch Grind-core band Dr. Doom for this tour.
Guitarist Topon comments to the tour: "Fucking Europe, eh? Who ever thought it would have actually happened? Well we did, but I guess we never expected it to take so long. It's been almost 10 years since I released the first Fuck The Facts cassette, and 7 years since the band started playing shows. Some of the first people that ever supported Fuck The Facts by releasing split tapes and putting FTF on comps were from Italy, France & Germany. It's crazy that after all these years I might get to finally meet some of these people and lots of you that have written us over the years…….." "It's definitely gonna be a different experience, and we will do our best to make sure we can "Disgorge" Europe with the same viciousness that we have North America. See you all soon." More...
Chicago-based noise machines, WINTERS IN OSAKA, have completed work on their next full-length. The record, "Molded to Crawl," was recorded over a six-months, which allowed the trio to complete several tours (including a Canadian run with THE ENDLESS BLOCKADE and a Southwestern jaunt with fellow noisenik MYKEL BOYD) and record several other collaborative releases (including one with Spanish goregrind legends MACHETAZO) during that time.
Mixed and mastered by studio member Greg Ratajczak, Molded to Crawl promises to deliver even more of the frightening brilliance found on past WINTERS IN OSAKA records. The album features appearances by: Rich Hoak (BRUTAL TRUTH, TOTAL FUCKING DESTRUCTION), Topon Das (FUCK THE FACTS), DEATH AGONIES (aka THE ENDLESS BLOCKADE), Chris Dodge (DESPISE YOU, SPAZZ, EAST WEST BLAST TEST), John Hoffman (WEEKEND NACHOS), and Toney Vast Binder (HARPOON, 7000 DYING RATS).

NY grinders, Psyopus, have revealed Brian Woodruff as their newest vocalist.
"Psyopus is long overdue and happy to announce new vocalist Brian Woodruff into the band. If you've seen Psyopus at all since the beginning of our Grinding Into Cataclysm tour that began in August, you may have noticed the new face on the stage. Well, Here is the explanation. After Harrison Christie's announced replacement, Matt Duckbirth, flaked out shortly after our press release of his joining the band, we replaced him with Brian. Brian was known as the vocalist from the Binghamton/Rochester, NY band As This Body, I Exist. We worked with him intensely, brought him into the studio and recorded the new album. This album was recorded with Brian. VERY shortly there after we jumped in the van and headed out for tour with War From a Harlots Mouth, Fuck the Facts and Left to Vanish. Again, after the premature press release that Matt was joining our band, we wanted to make sure that Brian was indeed the kat for the band before we made it "official". We are now here to say that he is indeed the kat for the job. Be prepared for a notch up in the vocal brutality of Psyopus."
On the entire Grinding into Cataclysm tour, Psyopus and Fuck the Facts have been teaming up every Friday to play a classic Metallica track. Check out the videos below, courtesy of Metal Injection. More...

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."

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...
