Pit Stories: One Foot Makes All The Difference

Every week we catch up with bands and fans to hear their favorite mosh pit stories from metal shows. This week Landmine Marathon's Ryan Butler shares a story of how one foot of space can make all the difference in house shows.

We played a house show in Santa Fe, New Mexico at one point and it was all adobe houses in a really nice neighborhood. We pulled up to the house and there are birthday balloons on the sign that said “Show Here.” We get in there, in a decent sized house, and we set up to play and once you put 30 kids in the room it’s cramped with all our gear. We start to play and Dylan ended up on the side of the room that just had the bulk of the kids and I was kind of up against the wall on the other side. He’s trying to play guitar and kids are flipping each other across the tops of their heads and just moshing like crazy. His guitar was cutting out every 30 seconds to 2 minutes because they’d step on his pedal board or fall on top of him literally and knock him to the ground.

About halfway through the set this guy yells out that he’s pretty sure he broke his foot, which is not funny until you see he’s still moshing, and he ends up moshing the entire show and having a great time. He hangs out at the after party, which was right in the same room, and is limping around. We tell him he should probably go the hospital, but he says he doesn’t care, he’s got to work tomorrow and he knows it’s broken, so there’s nothing going to the hospital that night will do. It was just chaos the whole time. We tend to enjoy shows where there’s not a stage sometime because it gets crazier. We just played a show in Reno and usually we tend to end up in basements, which in Reno are actually the size of venues, some of them. The kids go crazy and are right on top of you. We played in a bar in Reno for probably the first time in two or three years and kids were going nuts, but it’s just not quite the same. The energy level changes for some reason when there’s only one foot of separation for some reason. When you’ve got kids falling all over you its just pure adrenaline, so that’s the difference between playing on the floor and playing on the stage. One foot can make all the difference.

Landmine Marathon is set to release the new album "Gallows" on September 27th, 2011. You can check out a track from the album, titled "Three Snake Leaves," by heading over here.

Check back next Tuesday for even more pit stories shared by fans and bands from across the metal world.

Landmine Marathon Recording New Album

Arizona act Landmine Marathon is recording the follow up to 2010's "Sovereign Descent." Once again the album is being recorded at guitarist Ryan Butler's Arcane Digital Recording Studios, where he's recorded past efforts from the band, as well as Misery Index, Phobia, The Funeral Pyre and many more.

The band is about to enter the mixing stage and is shooting for a late fall release for the as-yet-untitled fourth album. Look for the band to announce summer tour dates in the coming days.

Landmine Marathon guitarist Ryan Butler commented, "The new album contains our most raw and vicious material to date. We definitely found a great groove in writing and recording this record, everything feels very fluid. This is in great part due to our new drummer Andy York, who brings a powerful and tight dynamic to the band. I am really excited for the world to hear this new album."

Landmine Marathon, whose vocalist Grace Perry appeared on the cover of Revolver Magazine in late 2009, performed several shows at South By Southwest and the 2nd Annual Scion Rock Fest in March 2010, and also appeared at Austin's Fun Fun Fun Fest and Indianapolis' Dude Fest last year.

Landmine Marathon Issues Band Update

Landmine Marathon has posted the following update online:

"2010 was a great year for Landmine Marathon. We spent more of the year on the road than we ever have in the past. We made many new friends and also had the opportunity to hang with many old yet familiar faces.

"2010 also marked the addition of our new drummer Andy York, to say the least the new blood is invigorating and inspiring. That being said, it is safe to say that we will be laying low for the first part of 2011 to focus on writing the follow up to our last album Sovereign Descent (if you haven’t already picked up a copy, we highly suggest you do so!).

"So far being only a few songs into the writing, I can honestly say that our excitement level for the new album is very high! Updates and official announcements will be coming a bit later."
