I took the Metra to the CTA Blue Line since I didn't want to pay for both gas and city parking. Besides, mass transit probably caused more damage to my hearing over the years that heavy metal ever did. On the way down to the city, the train conductor asked if I was in high school as he was offering student discounts and I looked like I could be a teenager. I'm 28. That's the downside of shaving my beard off every spring and staying clean shaven all the way through the summer until late autumn. With it, I look 16. Without it I look 45. I simply cannot win.
The venue is located in Wicker Park, which is the Hipster capital of Chicago thanks in no small part to the Subterranean being located right next to the Double Door. If there was any further proof that the hipster generation is a bunch of aging fossils, the Subterranean had a flier for an upcoming nu metal DJ night with a picture of Fred Durst. When your generation is old enough to get nostalgic and start looking backwards instead of to the future, they're officially as pathetic as retired hippies still pining away for the 60s. More...

Fit For An Autopsy's Will Putney noted, "After listening to more music, and expanding our palette, we realized we are capable of making a more interesting metal record. We saw lots of bands doing the same thing over and over. We thought, 'We can expand on all of this in a way that is unique to us,' so we approached the new album with that mentality, to break the mold of what we saw and heard, and to go outside of the limits of our genre."
Guitarist Pat Sheridan concurred, saying, "From the first album 'The Process of Human Extermination' to 'Hellbound,' there is a big change in the feel, the tone, the songwriting and the ability to write a song. 'Hellbound' was great, but we want to grow musically as a band. When you start touring and seeing what other bands were doing and being introduced to new things, you realize you are supposed to write a new record that is totally different." More...

The new album is set to drop October 2nd via eOne/Good Fight.

Jersey metal outfit Fit For An Autopsy has announced a new batch of co-headlining tour dates with Aborted. Archspire and label-mates Dark Sermon are set to open the bill.
Fit For An Autopsy is also putting the finishing touches on an all new, yet-to-be titled LP due out later this year. "The new album is a bit of a step in a new direction for the band," says guitarist Pat Sheridan. "It feels really intense."
The band will set up camp at The Machine Shop in New Jersey with guitar player and renowned producer Will Putney at the helm. The new effort will be the follow "Hellbound," released in 2013. The biggest change since then has been the band's vocalist: after the departure of Nate Johnson earlier last year, Greg Wilburn (Oblige) briefly filled in so the band could carry out touring plans. Just before the band entered The Machine Shop, Fit For An Autopsy brought in Joe Badolato (Diamond Cutter) as the brand new full-time vocalist.
"We found Joe at a perfect time," says guitarist Will Putney. "We had just come off months of touring with a vocalist we knew wasn't built to handle the lifestyle and stresses that come with being in a full-time band." Badolato's first show with the band was at The Brooklyn Asylum in Brooklyn, NY. More...
The New Jersey metal heavyweights from Fit For An Autopsy have wrapped up production on a yet-to-be titled LP due out later this year via eOne Music / Good Fight Music.
"The new album is a bit of a step in a new direction for the band," says guitarist Pat Sheridan. "You'll hear a lot of new influences in our sound and a real creative move towards other genres we have never experimented with until now. It's dark, sad and aggressive all at once and we're really happy with the vibe. It's also a very literal and real record and in more of a first person view of the world than we've ever done, and it feels really intense."
The band set up camp at The Machine Shop in New Jersey with guitar player and renowned producer Will Putney at the helm. The new effort will be the follow-up to "Hellbound," released in 2013.

"We found Joe at a perfect time," says guitarist Will Putney. "We had just come off months of touring with a vocalist we knew wasn't built to handle the lifestyle and stresses that come with being in a full-time band."
Badolato's first show with the band was at The Brooklyn Asylum in Brooklyn, NY before gearing up to head out west to start a tour supporting Suicide Silence alongside label-mates Within The Ruins.
Putney concludes, "Joe is an extremely humble and down to earth dude and is a killer singer. Bringing him into Fit For An Autopsy has elevated the band to a really cool creative spot, and we're excited about the future with him as our frontman."
Havok vocalist/guitarist David Sanchez has broken his wrist and the band will be forced to miss several dates on the current tour with Crowbar, Revocation, Fit For An Autopsy and Armed for Apocalypse.
The band will rejoin the tour in California in early October with Revocation's Dan Gargiulo will be filling on guitar while Sanchez returns on vocals.
Here's more in Sanchez's own words:
While hiking in Boulder, Colorado, I took a pretty nasty fall and ended up shattering my left wrist. Since I'm currently unable to play guitar, our friend Dan Gargiulo from Revocation has offered his 6-string services and will be laying down the riffage for the rest of our stint in the USA. I will still be doing vocals on the remainder of the upcoming shows and I cannot wait to get back on the road!
I'd like to apologize to anyone that was looking forward to seeing HAVOK in these coming days. We will definitely make it up to you. In times like these, one must remember the ancient American proverb, "Shit happens." See you on the road!!
One last thing! Here is some good news for a change. Pete's mom is making a full recovery from her recent accident and that means Pete Webber will be back behind the kit rejoining the tour in California. We want to thank Marshall Wieczorek from Wretched for stepping in on drums and doing an awesome job on such short notice.

"Only to be turned away again. Sorry to all our friends and fan who made plans to see us, we hope to figure out a way to be back soon." More...

Additionally, the sorcerers behind the NEM&HF are eager to officially welcome the first annual Best In Brutality Tour to its maniacal three-day ambush.

Celebrating its sixteenth anniversary, the iconic New England Metal & Hardcore Festival will commence on April 17th and run through April 19th. The currently announced lineup is as follows: More...
The latest round of additions to the continually-expanding lineup for 2014's installment of the New England Metal & Hardcore Festival has been disclosed, including Massachusetts' own '90s hardcore punk act, Sam Black Church.
Confirmed as one of the main headliners of the event's third night, Saturday, April 19th, Sam Black Church's set at NEMHF 2014 will mark only the third performance since the group initially disbanded at the turn of the century, and first in Central Massachusetts since the late '90s.
Stated the band upon being asked to take part in the massive event this Spring: "It is amazing what the man we used to know as Ogre has done with the New England Metalfest! We are fucking excited to be a part of it once again!"
The organizers of the fest comment: "Formed in Boston, in June of 1988 by Jesse "Jet" Crandall (vocals), Ben Crandall (guitar), Richard G. Lewis (bass), and J.R. Roach (drums), Sam Black Church was known for their energetic live performances, playing a frenetic blend of hardcore, metal, and thrash. Over the years sharing bills with bands as diverse as Bad Brains, Clutch, Motörhead, Cro-Mags, Fear, and Helmet, they were one of the most popular hardcore bands in the Northeast United States during the 1990s. After releasing three full-lengths on Taang! Records, they left to join Wonderdrug where they remained until they retired in 2000 after releasing a total of seven albums. Since disbanding, Sam Black Church reunited for a sold-out show on September 22, 2007, at The Roxy in Boston, and played a another sold-out performance at Hometown Throwdown #16 with The Mighty Mighty Bosstones at House of Blues in Boston on December 29th, 2013. A documentary of their career by Duncan Wilder Johnson entitled Leave Behind a Groove in the Earth is scheduled for release in 2014."
Also now confirmed to invade this year's festival are Oceano, Scars of Tomorrow, The Last Ten Seconds of Life, InDirections, and Julius Seizure on Thursday, April 17th, and Reflections on Friday, April 18th. The setup for Saturday, April 19th has also been lengthened with Texas In July, Obey The Brave and the aforementioned Sam Black Church performance. The currently announced lineup is as follows: More...

Fit For An Autopsy has checked in with the following update about missing a show tonight due to vocalist Nate Johnson being ill:
"Over the course of the past 2 1/2 weeks Nate Johnson has been battling an upper respiratory infection that has turned into bronchitis causing us to have to miss our show in Louisville Kentucky tonight. We regret not being able to play but it is in Nate's best interest to get some rest.
"So please come out and see us in February with Chimera and don't forget to go out tonight to the show and support all the other bands on the Hate Across America tour. We will see you guys soon." More...

Fit For An Autopsy has released another new single called "Tremors" in anticipation of upcoming new LP "Hellbound," due out September 10th, 2013. Listen to the track below.
Apparently not a nod to the classic Kevin Bacon flick about underground monsters, the band comments on the track:
"Tremors is a song about giving up. Things just don't get better sometimes. People go bad and you lose the ones you love to death, to drugs and to the darker places in life. It's not easy to go through life and expect every day to be better than the one before it. Bad shit happens and it's going to keep happening and that's that." More...
