Pit Stories: Grindcore Mayhem

Every week Metalunderground.com checks in with rock and metal acts from across the world to find their best mosh pit stories.

Vocalist Bryce Lucien of Texas act Seeker today shares a story of an out-of-control Daughters show (Daughters being no stranger to live antics). Bryce tells the following tale:

There are very few pits that have stuck with me. Years on the road have left me desensitized to most of the ridiculous happenings at shows, but there is one experience that was so extreme in its GG Allen-esque awesomeness and so relentless in its lack of fucks given that it will forever be seared into my memory...

This was 8 or 9 years ago now... Daughters and An Albatross were in town and me, being the total grind fanatic that I am, was obviously beside myself with excitement. I got to the show early, made sure I was front and center, and prepared myself for what I was sure would be the most wonderfully abrasive and debauched show that I had ever attended. After suffering through two despicably awful locals, Daughters finally took the stage and began sound checking. Their singer was nowhere to be seen. The band yelled for him over the PA and minutes later he finally walks onstage, scowling, glossy eyed, beer in hand... he was so fucking cool. The band launched into their first song and the crowd exploded. I was shoved into the stage, punched, jumped on, and I didn't care. I loved it.

However, through all the mayhem I noticed that their singer wasn't singing any of the words and there was a gagging sound coming through the speakers so I looked over and realize that he is standing on the lip of the stage, deep throating the mic, and flipping off the crowd. He then pulls the mic out of his mouth and projectile vomits all over the stage. As he does this I feel a pair of shoes connect with the back of my head. I turn around and see the crowd surfing girl momentarily get sucked back into the sea of arms before being thrown at me again. I duck and the singer of Daughters grabs her left shoe, rips it off, pours his beer into it, chugs it, throws the shoe back into the crowd, falls off the stage, and finally screams his first line...

This all happened in less than 2 minutes. The rest of their 10 minute set was just as insane. This is probably a really horrible reflection on me, but that night totally solidified my love for this lifestyle and my desire to tour...oh well. Fuck it.

You can check out Seeker's music video for "Serpent Skin" in the player below, along with a list of upcoming tour dates later this month. A teaser for the new single "Alone" is also available at this location.

Be sure to check back in next Tuesday for the next in our series of heavy metal Pit Stories. More...

Coalesce Confirms Tour, New Release

As has been rumored, Coalesce will indeed be touring in August. Additionally, the group has also announced plans to release a new 7", titled "Salt and Passage," on September 11th. The current line-up of the band is: Jes Steineger, Nathan Richardson, Nathan Ellis, and Sean Ingram.

Regarding, their intentions, etc., the group comments: "Instead of looking at Coalesce as a second career or some ego-stroking project to prove something within modern music, it is being held closely and personally by the members as their time to put aside familial duties, work, school, or whatnot, and simply 'do it.' In short, we just want to hang out together again and play our shows out of a peculiar love for doing so (in all it's ugly purity)... Please let us make it very clear that this is not a 'reunion' tour in any way shape or form. Since it's simply the nature of coalesce to come and go as it pleases, terms like 'reunion' make no sense when applied to it."

The upcoming tour will feature support from Daughters, See You Next Tuesday (on the East Coast), and This Is My Condition (in the Midwest). Here are the tour dates:

8/15 Worcester, MA @ The Palladium
8/16 Philadelphia, PA @ First Unitarian Church
8/17 New York, NY @ Knitting Factory
8/18 Baltimore, MD @ Ottobar
8/19 Richmond, VA @ Alley Katz
8/20 Pittsburgh, PA @ Lawrenceville Moose
8/21 Detroit, MI @ Magic Stick
8/22 Chicago, IL @ TBA
8/23 Iowa City, IA @ Picador
8/24 Omaha, NE @ Sokol Underground
8/25 Lawrence, KS @ Bottleneck
