Since we're about to hit the road, we decided to dedicate this mixtape to a lot of the bands we've met on the road (whether or not we remember it). Overall, it's a pretty lengthy handful of songs so make room and enjoy.Stream April 2012 Tour - Cough Mixtape
Download Link & Tracklist after the jump! DOWNLOAD April 2012 Tour Cough Mixtape HERE! 1. John Calvin - Chad Christopher Hale We played a tiny bar in Shreveport, LA with these guys. One of the most unsettling live shows we've ever had the pleasure of seeing. 2. Churches Burn - Cashburner Probably our oldest friends as far as band relationships go. Back when we couldn't find shows (but decided to book a tour anyway) Brian put us up for a few days until we had somewhere to be. 3. Black Pussy - Burnt Cross This is THE Black Pussy from Vicksburg, Mississippi. No amount of paper work is gonna change that. This is what Black Pussy should sound like. 4. Earthling - Losing Sight Harrisonburg, Virginia friends doing the blackened thrash thing. 5. Grime - Charon Spent one of the absolute worst nights of our European tour with these guys. In Slovenia, I think. One of those days that has nowhere to go but up. Anyway, they sounded great and this demo is proof that I wasn't hallucinating. 6. Windhand - Winter Sun Debut album out on Forcefield (LP) and Mordgrimm (CD). Local Richmond doom brothers (and sister). 7. Amarok - I We did a short run of shows with these guys in November of '10. They had to have it towed 50-100 miles to the 2nd show. By the 3rd show they were in a borrowed mini-van, driver included, with just a bass cab and some drums. Fucking dedication. 8. Orm - Witch of Endor I don't remember playing with Orm but I think they said we did...? Regardless, pretty killer shit outta Colorado. 9. Druglord - Motherfucker Rising Druglord has been playing around Richmond for a couple years now but we've known all the members for a while. It's always good to see heavy done well in your hometown. 10. Batillus - Deadweight We've played with Batillus a handful of times over the past 4-5 years. The last time we saw them (SXSW 2011) was by far the best. 11. Guzik - Cathartic You know, there's not a lot of good things to say about Athens, GA. In fact, I fucking hate that place. I think it manages to bring out the worst in all of us. That being said, Chris from Guzik has always been at our shows there when nobody else was. Here's a decent live recording taken from SouthernShelter.com. 12. Clagg - The Harvest Back in October we got a pretty rare opportunity for a band of our size. We got to fly out to Australia and 'headline' a travelling doom festival. We played a handful of nights with Clagg. Other Australian bands worth checking out: Space Bong, Mother Mars, Looking Glass, Sommonus, d.USK/Inverloch, Pod People, Hydromedusa. 13. Umor - Vile From Croatia. These guys made shitty little rooms sound great and they're pretty good at foosball/kicker as well. 14. Elder - Gemini We did a couple weeks with these Rhode Islanders in 2010. Haven't had a lot of contact with them since but Nick will pop up in random countries from time-to-time. 15. Deadbird - Into the Clearing I feel like Deadbird has been over-looked for so long. Twilight Ritual is a great album and you should buy it. You should also tell your record label friends to put it on vinyl. I'm sick of this bullshit. 16. Stonehelm - Hyborian Tale I thought this California-based band disappeared but I guess they put out an album in 2010. I haven't heard from them since '08 or so. Therefore, here is an early version of 'Hyborian Tale'. We've never actually met or played with Stonehelm but I dig what they're doing.
