Tour de Force



South by South Death

Kvelertak have arrived in the U.S. safe and sound! Visa and passport thieves be damned, these six determined Norwegians did what they had to do to get the appropriate replacement paperwork and made it to the U.S. in time to play their scheduled gig in San Francisco this past Friday. Fan-filmed footage of that show, sent in by Tristan G., gets us super-excited… because Kvelertak are scheduled to headline our first annual South by South Death show this Friday in Austin! Three cheers for not having to cancel. Perseverance is definitely METAL. Havok, Red Fang, Wormrot and Meek is Murder are also scheduled to appear at the show, which will be MCed by Ray Mazzola of Full Blown Chaos. The madness starts at 2pm on Friday, March 18th at Headhunters. So stoked.

We’re also sponsoring two additional shows this week. We’ll be getting our full metal breakfast on at Full Metal Texas on Thursday at Emo’s starting at noon, headbanging to The Red Chord, Yob, Hull, Kvelertak, Rwake, Goes Cube and so many more. More info on that event here. And last but certainly not least, we’ll be hanging with the Sumerian Records cats while The Faceless, Veil of Maya, Animals as Leaders, Ultrageist and more fuck our faces off at the official Sumerian Records Showcase the evening of Wednesday the 16th at Habana Bar. Definitely do NOT miss that one.

Of course, there are tons of other metal happenings throughout Austin all week long, all of which have been conveniently collected and organized by our own Corey Mitchell (day parties here, official showcases here). There is so much awesome shit going on it unfortunately won’t be possible to see it all… but that won’t stop us from trying. That is when we’re not indulging in the plentiful beer, boobs and BBQ. See you there!
