Old punks don’t die, they reunite. Under the name FLAG, Keith Morris (vocals), Chuck Dukowski (bass), Dez Cadena (guitar/vocals) and Bill Stevenson (drums), with Descendents/All guitarist Stephen Egerton, have come together to form their version of BLACK FLAG. This past week, they performed a secret show at the Redondo Beach Lodge No. 1873. Check out the historic performance on CVLT Nation NOW!…This was their first show together in 34 years!

- A love letter of sorts by Ralph Planks (with more words of adoration by Mike Hill/Tombs) –
”I have the official OK from Epitaph to do a Vinyl print of “Kollapse’”…was probably the most thrilling sentence I received in an Email this year. My friend Maik from Apocaplexy Records did the impossible and really pulled off something big. He and I share a common love for this band called Breach and it all comes down to this dream: “Kollapse”, the bands infamous last record, on Vinyl. A thing that was not done but demanded by a lot of people for a long time. In my case a ten year old dream. After the accomplishment of bringing “Godbox” (the bands second to last output) on vinyl last year, he set out for the ultimate task and won. “Kollapse” will see a first-ever vinyl release today, April 18th of 2013. [Find details at the end of the article.] First, let me guide you through the record that changed my reception of heavy music forever:
There comes one record, in every genre of music you engulf in, that will define and accumulate all the factors you love about this brand. Sometimes it will take the test of time to tell, some records just hit you straight in the face and heart at the same time and you just know. I remember when I first heard Joy Division after being in love with sad pop songs for years. I knew it was love and will last forever. The same happened when I first laid ears upon the thing that is “Kollapse”. Breach have been a favorite of mine for a while around the Millennium. They combined the right elements of (heavy) music to create an atmosphere unlike any other band I ever had the pleasure to know. You can see a full-on report of my heartbeats towards them here!
I’m not going to even say too much, other than here is a cult classic movie for a generation. CVLT Nation now showing The Edge Of Quarrel after the jump!
San Francisco black metal skygazers Deafheaven are set to release of the most anticipated heavy records of 2013 — the blarey, bleary-eyed, blasty Sunbather. Scheduled for release on Deathwish Inc. on June 11, their second album melts black metal’s icy veneer, giving it the majesty of bands like Jesu and Mogwai — a seven-song suite that splits its time between warm piano pulses, spiraling post-rock guitars, sheer jet-engine noise, and sunstroked blasts. This nearly eight-minute teaser works as a little documentary that peeks into the making of this cinematic opus: the stress, the screams, and a few awesome shots of new drummer Daniel Tracy playing blastbeats in black and white.
