On the day before Memorial Day, we've got a dark-rock gig to keep you out late and extend your weekend by a day! WAILIN STORMS is a Durham NC band on LA-via-VA label Magic Bullet Records that harkens the sounds of old-school goth and early punk with their own unique taste on the genre. They'll be touring alongside Athens Georgia's sludgey dark psychedelic warriors VINCAS and sandwiched locally by UNMAKER and BAD MAGIC!!

Originally formed in the unrelenting heat of Corpus Christi, Texas, WAILIN STORMS migrated east and ended up in Durham, North Carolina. Producing a mix of doom-punk and swampy rock with elements of their prior and current surroundings culminate into a unique and volatile brew, overridden with ominous vocal elements reminiscent of bluesy masters like Howlin' Wolf and Samhain, and musically carved from the Southern American East Coast with emotive nods to Destruction Unit, Clockcleaner, Unsane, and Pussy Galore. The band's output is incessantly passionate and harrowing in its entirety; the songs, dark and gritty, with incisive guitar slicing through heavy, churning rhythms. Lead singer Justin Storms howls convincingly amongst the cacophony, belting along as if he's looking to recruit others to join in with him at any moment.

After two successful EPs — 2011's Bone Colored Moon and 2014's Shiver — the band began collaborating with members from various bands, including Bats and Mice, to release their debut LP, One Foot In The Flesh Grave. WAILIN STORMS' deep, dark, swampy and catchy as hell new material bears seven hymns for this ongoing funeral procession of everyday life.
Vincas
Vincas
Athens, Georgia is rich with an ever-evolving and burgeoning undeground music scene and the self released "Blood Bleeds" LP by Vincas is further proof of the stellar things happening in the American South. Vincas deal in scuzzed out psychedelic punk fireballs in the broad shouldered tradition of The Scientists, The Gun Club and the art damaged frenzied space rock of The Telescopes and High Rise. They've upped the feedback squalor, infused a hefty rhythmic pulse with a muscular dexterity and topped it off with an Alan Vega snarl. "Blood Bleeds" rams full speed ahead with a surly debauched swamp-groove psych-raunch that is always welcome to our ears.
