Milwaukee, WI rock 'n' roll / hardcore band Shit Outta Luck (featuring ex-members of Wings of Scarlet and Die Alone) have signed a deal with Organized Crime Records to release the band's debut album "Family Tradition" on Sept. 22nd. You can check out a few tracks from the band here.
Milwaukee's Amora Savant will play their final show next week after four years together. The show will feature both the group's original line-up in addition to the newest line-up that featured Jeff Lohrber of Harlots on drums and Tim Marshall from Veil Of Maya on bass. The event will also feature performances by Veil Of Maya, Carnivale, Harlots, Everest, The Serpent Son, and By Strangulation.
According to the group, "There is no bad blood between the members. Both John and Ross have already began a new project called Asrava with former Wings of Scarlet members. Andy has picked up with Volatile Recordings and is looking for artists."
Wings of Scarlet have decided to call it quits and announced their final show. Here is their statement:
"It's been a nice 4 years as a band, most of it anyway. We're not gonna lie, we pretty much hate what's going on in hardcore and it's not fun anymore. We're sick of bands and bullshit people talking about markets and customers. It becomes more apparent by the day that we have nothing in common with most of the people who come out to shows now. It's increasingly frustrating that our style of music has come to represent the antithesis of everything we stand for."
"With that said, we are playing one final show. It will consist of the original line up (no offense to the great guys who have played with us the last year or so). Parker (who plays guitar in Undying now) will be flying back to play the show, along with the other founding guitarist Louie Pahl, Earl will be playing bass if he's not too drunk, Barry pretty much doesnt give a shit, and Shawn will be offending all. We just wanted to play one last show with our long time friends and their current bands."
"So many thanks and cheers to everyone who has had any part in anything weve tried to do. Dan Gump and Life Sentence for putting out the record. All our friends in Milwaukee, Chicago, Minneapolis, and beyond, we thank you, you are in our hearts. Everyone who has sent us emails -whether kind or threatening- this is your last chance to back up your words. Come on out and help us make this a disaster to remember."
