New Jersey's E-Town Concrete will reunite for a show early next year. The show will take place at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ on February 21st. Doors open at 6pm and tickets (which go on sale Friday) are $25 in advance. The band, which broke up in 2006, has yet to comment.
Fresh off two sold-out farewell performances at The Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, New Jersey, E.TOWN CONCRETE will be returning to the venue one last time this summer as part of the Sounds Of The Underground Tour 2006. An idea that started as an Internet rumor quickly gained support among the groups dedicated fan base.
"It was really our fans who made the decision," explains vocalist Anthony Martini. "The rumor was posted on a message board somewhere and the next thing you know, the Sounds Of The Underground organizers were contacting me. We weren't even going to do it, but I'd gotten literally hundreds of emails begging us to play one more time. It was truly overwhelming."
Catch E.TOWN one last time as they ride off into the sunset on July 15 in Sayreville, New Jersey at Starland Ballroom; with another Sounds Of The Underground addition; Trustkill's latest signing THIS IS HELL.
The following post was made on the message board by the singer of E-Town Concrete:
"Most of you have heard by now that E.town Concrete will be hanging up the cleats on May 20th at Starland. It is true. As much as we love to play the music we've created over the past decade and as proud as we are of what we've built, the time has come to stop. We would rather go out with dignity than to quietly become irrelevant. We have no regrets. The name E.town Concrete is known by many people all over the world. The music we made afforded us opportunities to see and do things many people only dream about. We traveled the world, met tons of amazing people and created art that people actually care about. For that, we are extremely grateful. We started this band when we were still in high school. Our fans have watched us grow up and vice versa. We have fans that were 9 years old when we started, who are in college now...that's crazy. And that's also a lot more than most other bands can say. Over the past couple weeks, there has been much speculation over why we are doing this, the only reason is because it just feels right. Out of respect for the people who ever supported us and believed in us, we wouldn't want to continue to just play shows every now and then to make some loot if our hearts weren't in the right place. E.town Concrete is not a hobby. E.town Concrete has been our lives for as long as I can remember. If we can't do it right anymore, then maybe it's best to not do it at all. And although this is difficult for all of us, sometimes the most admirable thing is knowing when to let go. We invite EVERYONE to witness history and celebrate the end of an era. From the bottom of our hearts...THANK YOU."
2/19 - BB Kings - 237 W 42nd st - w/ If Hope Dies, Losa, On Broken Wings.

Apparently E-Town Concrete will play their final show at the Starland Ballroom in New Jersey on May 20th.
From the Starland Ballroom site: "An era comes to an end on May 20th when E-Town Concrete rocks Starland for its final performance."
No official statement has been made yet.
E.Town Concrete have a new video out for the track, 'What Can I Do?' off their most recent album, 'Made For War'. The video can be seen at mgenyc.com.
The Boston-based quintet Diecast are set to embark on a headlining U.S. tour alongside The Hoods and Winter Solstice immediately following their stint on the Heavyweights of Hardcore tour. The trek kicks off on Jan. 20th and runs through Feb. 10th. The group's highly acclaimed new album, "Tearing Down Your Blue Skies," is now available. A new video for the track "Rise and Oppose" will be shot by Kevin Leonard (Himsa, Walls of Jericho) on Jan. 19th and look for it to makes it debut in late Feb.
Diecast just wrapped up a highly successful run on the Radiotakeover.com tour alongside E-Town Concrete, Devilinside and Twelve Tribes. Jeremy Wooden (bass) checks in with the follow tour wrap-up:
We just got back from the Radiotakeover tour with E-town Concrete, Twelve Tribes and almost Devilinside. It was amazing and we had a blast with all the bands. It started off slow with smaller shows, but all the kids who went out made us all feel like we were playing in front of thousands of fans. A lot of kids came up to us after the set saying that they were a bit skeptical about our singer change and new material (mostly due to internet gossip) but after seeing us live said we were way better than we've ever been. Stand out shows on the tour were definitely, New Jersey, Massachusetts, New York (Albany and NYC) and Pennsylvania (Allentown and Philly).
Thanks to the promoters (minus 2 or 3) who treated us very well, fed us, drank with us, etc. We'd also like to thank everyone who came out to interview us on the road. Except for the two shit-bags who decided to piss all over the sofa and our singers bag (your lucky I'm a pacifist now), you were all great to us. We also got a Monster energy drink sponsorship on the road, so that kept us nice and perky for the long drives.
Well, we are home to spend time with family and enjoy the holidays and then it's back on the road in January with legends Hatebreed and Agnostic Front. I've also been informed that Tony and Mike from Devilinside will be getting something new together so be on the lookout, those guys are amazing musicians and great guys. Have a great holiday and we'll see you on the road soon.
