Melbourne, Australia-based Kromosom is en-route to invade the U.S. once again, as the "Nuclear Reich" 2013 tour commences this week.
Beginning in Boston this Friday, May 17th, Kromosom will romp down the East Coast alongside Nomad for ten shows, including a stop at this year’s Maryland Deathfest, then continuing south through New Orleans. Then Nomad drops off the tour and Frenzy comes on board with Kromosom for an additional eight dates of rampaging live action, kicking off with two shows at this year’s Chaos In Tejas in Austin, then wrapping clockwise up the West Coast.

Born in the smoldering wake of defunct crust acts Schifosi and Pisschrist, and featuring current members of Leprosy, Bloody Hammer, Fuil Na Seanchoille and Nuclear Death Terror, Melbourne-based Kromosom have hooked up with Southern Lord for the release of "Live Forever."
The album is set for North American release this Tuesday, January 22nd, but you can hear the full album online now. Head over to Invisible Oranges here to listen. The following press release was also issued about the album:
"The fifteen-track assault captures all of Kromosom's material previously only available on vinyl, with fifteen boasting fifteen entirely unhinged, filthy tracks, barely touching the twenty-three minute realm, all mastered for maximum pandemonium by Jack Control (World Burns to Death, Severed Head of State). If this doesn’t get you raging it's time to hang up your boots and join the rest of the sheep. Invisible Oranges is now streaming Live Forever in its raging entirety; do it!
"While final venue info is still pending, Kromosom will invade the US again this Spring. Ripping loose in Brooklyn on May 17th the quartet will pummel South alongside Nomad, stopping off to blast out a set at Maryland Deathfest XI, on their way to tear it up at this year’s Chaos in Tejas at the end of the month.
"Following that venture they’ll hit the West Coast running from Los Angeles up to Portland from June 3rd through 8th with support from Frenzy. Stay tuned as specific venues are confirmed." More...
Melbourne-based ragers Kromosom have hooked up with Southern Lord Recordings for first CD release, "Live Forever." The following press release was issued about the band:
"Born in the smoldering wake of now defunct Australian crust acts Schifosi and Pisschrist, and featuring current members of Leprosy, Bloody Hammer and fellow Southern Lord mercenaries Nuclear Death Terror, Kromosom have kicked a massive dent into the international crust/punk/hardcore circuit working under the band doctrine: 'Noisier, nastier, rawer.' Through several vinyl-only indie releases and steady waves of international touring since their 2010 inception the band caught the attention of Southern Lord who now confirms the first CD release in Kromosom’s discography with Live Forever.
"The bruising fifteen-track assault captures all of the band’s material previously only available on vinyl, including their self-titled 12”, tracks from the Hardcore Pollution split 7” with Isterismo, and the Paranoid 7," all mastered for maximum pandemonium by Jack Control (World Burns to Death, Severed Head of State). If this doesn’t get you raging it's time to hang up your boots and join the rest of the sheep.
"Live Forever will hit the streets of North America on January 22nd, 2013, amidst steady, ongoing bursts of live actions through the rest of the year, as Kromosom are already confirmed to invade the continent once again this Spring for Maryland Deathfest, Chaos in Tejas and more." More...
