**without Yawning Man 

From the PR Wire: 

Desert soundtrackers Yawning Man will hit the road right after New Year’s in order, presumably, to bring a bit of warmth to some of the harshest hours 2019 will present. The genre-shaping Californian outfit released The Revolt Against Tired Noises (review here) earlier this year, and it’s a record that has endured even as others have come and gone since, and typical of the band’s work, one expects it will continue to unfold sides of itself over a longer term than a mere matter of months. Recall this is a band who were practically legends before they had an album out. Still, in their 30-plus-year history, they haven’t ever been especially huge on touring, so even as they become a more cohesive studio outfit, they’re complementing that with a live incarnation. They were in Europe this past summer, and have already gotten a first East Coast stint under their collective belt. As far as I’m concerned, the more the merrier. 

They’ll have Nick Oliveri and his Mondo Generator outfit along for the first stretch of dates, then pick up shortly thereafter with Virginian fuzzers Freedom Hawk, which is badass on multiple levels that you probably already know.

Ripple Music to release a remastered version of 2009 self-titled album on Vinyl  

We are thrilled to announce the upcoming rerelease Freedom Hawk by Ripple Music; the self-titled 2009 album from vintage rock pioneers Freedom Hawk. 

Hailing from the barrier dunes of Virginia, the quartet blend heavy riffs into rolling grooves and soulful guitar melodies to showcase their sound. Widely recognized as one of the leading forces in the retro-rock movement, their exceptional brand of heavy and high energy live shows leaves many questioning whether they’ve stepped through a time warp directly out of the ’70s hard rock heyday. Wrapped in core metal tones with slight psychedelic edges Freedom Hawk’s driving beat and heavy guitars offer the kind of timeless vocals that gave light to the dawn of the new and heavy revival. 

Freedom Hawk by Freedom Hawk is released worldwide on 17th November 2017 on vinyl and CD. For more info visit and stream and share the album in full here –

Oct 14 New York, NY @ Fat Baby 
Oct 15 Baltimore, MD @ Sidebar w/ Foghound

*No Colossus 

After being quiet for a while after last years European tour, we have now worked in a new guitarist (Brendan O'neil from the thrash band Pestilence Choir) to round us out as a 4 piece once again and have been busy writing new material.  We have decided to take a pause from writing to get out on the road to do a very short tour run around the Northeast accompanied by our metal maniac mates in Colossus (Raleigh, NC).  We have relatively exciting news (at least to us that is) to announce in the near future...let's just say 2017 is looking bright. 

Hope to see you there!!
