Background

36 Crazyfists, signed to Roadrunner records in 2002, debuted with their album titled "Bitterness the Star'" and did 2004's critically acclaimed "A Snow Capped Romance". They have their own unique sound, standing out most in vocalist Broc Lindow's voice. They recorded their debut and dedicated one of the songs to their original bass player who lost his life in a car accident.

36 Crazyfists may have suffered a loss, but that hasn't stop them from making music. They combine hard driven gutiars comparable to Killswitch Engage and vocals that are something of their own. 36 Crazyfists are showing the world that Alaska's not only known for eskimos, but also kick ass metal. 36 Crazyfists are definately a band to watch over the years. Who knows where they'll take their unique sound, comparable to Killswitch Engage, next?

In Flames Plays the Commodore in Vancouver, BC

The Commodore Ballroom is easily one of the best live venues in Vancouver so I was stoked to see In Flames play there on the evening of November, 17th. A half hour before doors opened, there was already a horde of metal fans stretched down the block eagerly awaiting a packed line-up that included Portland's 36 Crazyfists, France's Gojira, All That Remains and the headliners In Flames. The show did not disappoint. Here's how it went down. More...

36 Crazyfists Posts Concert Online

Alaskan metal heavyweights 36 CRAZYFISTS have posted an entire show from their current tour online. The set was filmed at The Lost Horizon in Syracuse NY and can be viewed at The UVTV website.

The concert is also available on iTunes.

36 CRAZYFISTS will film its January 9, 2009 concert in Anchorage, Alaska for a forthcoming DVD. According to Lindow, "the show will be monstrous as the ones in the past have proved to be what dreams are made of. But as the years have gone on, you can imagine the amount of ridiculous footage we have from backstage antics to being a 18-year-old skinny, punk-ass kid getting my long hair chopped off by [Steve] Holt [guitar] in a drunken stupor; it's things like this that will be hilarious to sift through and add to our special features section of the DVD."

36 CRAZYFISTS sold 4,150 copies of "The Tide and its Takers" in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 155 on The Billboard 200 chart.

"The Tide and Its Takers" was released on May 27 via Ferret Music. The CD artwork was designed by Sons of Nero, who has previously worked with such bands as IN FLAMES, EVERY TIME I DIE, FULL BLOWN CHAOS and THE HUMAN ABSTRACT.

It Dies Today Announces New Tour and Video

IT DIES TODAY has just announced a new tour and a new music video for their upcoming album. The band will kick off a tour in August with labelmates Walls Of Jericho as well as 36 CrazyFists and more.

Their new album, "Lividity," will be out in early fall and the band is in the studio now recording. They will be filming the first video off the new album for the song "Thank You For Drinking" next week.

Singer Jason Wood checked in with an update on the video and song: "The song's slogan, like a double-entendre, translates into a so-called friend that through drinking on their own accord shows their true personality. For example, a good friend that ends up being an asshole afte getting drunk at a party or bar."

The video will be shot on location at a bar the band fequents in Sanborn, NY called "The Walmore Inn." The video will feature a friend of the band who's had too much to drink before he even gets to the bar and proceeds to start shit with everyone throughout the song, until the band has had enough and starts a bar fight. Keep your eyes peeled for the video in July, and some webisodes of the writing and recording process from It Dies Today.

The latest It Dies Today tour dates follow. More...
