Philly’s Kung Fu Necktie played host to Whores, Fight Amp, and Rye Coalition recently as BTS’s Senior Photographer Dante Torrieri was on hand to capture the evening in photos featured below the fold.
Atlanta, GA’s noise rockers, Whores are supporting their latest release Clean which hit streets in October via Brutal Panda Records and it quickly sold out within a month. A second pressing of the hard-hitting noise rock behemoth is now available. A new tour supporting stoner rock trio Floor, kicks off on May 31st in Birmingham, AL and runs through June 4th in Tampa, FL. Additionally, the group has been confirmed for Gainsville, Florida’s 13th annual The Fest. Whores recently released a split 7″ of The Cure covers with Portland, OR noise/sludge trio Rabbits also via Brutal Panda Records / Eolian Empire.
Philly’s Fight Amp are currently supporting 2012’s Birth Control on Brutal Panda that Lambgoat.com hailed, saying “Fight Amp have been successful at pushing the boundaries of a relatively simple formula, all while remembering to keep the endorphin-producing grooves front and center. Birth Control is the obvious proof.” The band is slated to hit road the road on July 15th for a hand full of dates with Kowloon Walled City before heading into The Gradwell House studio in early August to begin recording the band’s next release.
Long-running Jersey City hard rock outfit, Rye Coalition rounded out the bill as they continue to support four full length albums, three EPs, a split 12″ with Karp, and several 7″ records throughout a tumultuous career dating back to 1994. A movie titled, “Rye Colaition: The Story Of The Hard Luck Five,” is currently in the works featuring commentary by Steve Albini (Shellac), Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters) and more, as the band is rumored to be crafting new material.
