Those Canberran's are looking to release a new album. They want to try something new. It would be nice if you, and your pals, could contribute some dollars towards their process. It can immortalise you, not only to the band, but you could even get your name in the Thank You section, which you could show all those kids who still continue to make fun of you, your taste in music and your lack of a life. Go here now to donate.

For as low as $10 you can pre-purchase a digital download of the album (with digital artwork and all the trimmings); $20 gets you a CD, $35 is a (new design) t-shirt and CD; and $60 and over wins you immortality through inclusion in the thanks list in the album art.
All you need is an email address. You can pay with PayPal or direct debit. Any help will be greatly appreciated, and you can guarantee that we'll remember your help and do what we can to support your next project and keep the live music scene interesting.
Wretch is four-piece grind/death/thrash/METAL!!! band based in Canberra. Since forming in 2011, Wretch has gone from strength to strength. Their live assault has been refined by frequent performances, including a handful of international supports, a number of successful festivals and playing with damn near every metal, hardcore and punk band in the country.
The Senseless Violence EP (http://fvckingshitcvnt.bandcamp.com/) was self-released in early 2012 and received positive critical reception.
In the same DIY spirit, they’re recording their full-length album, Because You’re Worthless, for self-release in April and are inviting you to help support the making of this new album. Think of it as being like an extreme metal arts patron, supporting a new world where the record companies and shitty middlemen have all fucked off home and the music lovers have taken over.
Sub-heading: JCP and BP split launch, Counter Attack & Peter Brock Sydney Tour
Over the hills and through the woods, starting from South Australia, booze fueled grinders, Guantanamo Bay City Rollers return to Sydney for at least 3 days of grind. They bring fellow South Australians Peter Brock and Victoria's Counter Attack.

Jesus Christ Posse and Battle Pope team up to launch their split 12" LP. Counter Attack sit this one out, or play somewhere else (I've not been told).

The ever busy guys from Red Bee have landed a deal with Green Distribution which see's their album, "Ictus", officially launched this Friday, the 26th of October. You'll have to travel though, keen fan, because the launch is in their homeland, the Blue Mountains.
The new album will combine their refined formula of mathy time signatures and progressive key changes with Metal with Hard Rock influences. Each song having a different flavour depending on who created it. The press release claims that often each member brings their own song to the table and on other songs they combine forces to create something altogether different. They've always reminded me of a combination of Helmet, The Butterfly Effect and Botch. The live show is full of energy, showing the experience of being on the road for around 10 years can bring.
I should be doing Grindhead things and to some extent this is related... Here's a choose your own adventure/genre for Friday night. Free Doom or Death and Grind in Tempe?
