The Generators announce headlining US West Coast tour

Posted in News with tags , , , on 4th September 2012 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Seminal underground LA punk rock band The Generators have announced a fall West Coast tour in support of the band’s latest album, Last of the Pariahs.  The tour will kick off at legendary punk establishment 924 Gilman in Berkeley on October 5 and culminate at B Ryders in Bakersfield on October 20.  The band has also announced they are currently writing new material for an album due out in 2013.

Listen to The Generators’ track You Against You from Last of the Pariahs, out now on DC Jam Records.

We normally hit only major cities when we go out on the road, so this West Coast 2012 tour will be kind of cool for us, due to the fact we are stopping off, and hitting all the smaller towns as well, that the bigger bands might not normally venture into,” says vocalist Doug “Dagger” Kane.  “It’s a good feeling to be able to bring the music to the people. Times are tough right now, and people might be staying closer to home, and not driving themselves hours into the larger cities. We also know we are going to open the doors to all sorts of newer fans that knew little to nothing about us. The days of The Generators being a mystery to the Punkers, and Rock & Rollers of the Western US States might be coming to an end.

After eight albums spanning from 1997’s highly revered classic Welcome to the End to 2011’s Last of the Pariahs, The Generators are hardly a mystery among the punk rock community.  The band, which features Dagger on vocals along with guitarists Mike Snow and Sean Romin, drummer Greg Millan and bassist Manny, has spent the last fifteen years making a name for themselves with coveted releases and relentless tours with bands like The Damned, Cock Sparrer, Anthrax, Bad Religion, Agnostic Front and Stiff Little Fingers to name a few.

The band’s fifteen years of blood, sweat and tears is paying off too.  The Generators’ music has been appeared in various national TV and radio commercials as well as promos for The Grammy Awards and all over the radio airwaves over the last few years.  Not surprising, their shows are getting bigger as well.  No longer a support act, the band has graduated to packing venues on headlining tours around the world.

Although the band has been around for fifteen years, it seems as though they’re just getting started.

Anterior Announced Plans To Split After Final London Show

Posted in News with tags , , , , on 6th February 2012 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Anterior have announced they will split up after one final farewell show in London on March 2, 2012.

The Welsh outfit released two albums on Metal Blade: This Age Of Silence in 2007 and last year’s Echoes Of The Fallen since signing to the label six years ago.

A statement from the whole band reads: “It is with great sadness and disappointment that we have decided to call it a day. After 10 years, 2 albums, many members and countless tours we will no longer be continuing with Anterior. We are all still friends and have the best regards for each other and we all wish that things could have been different. Every band have their struggles, problems and adversity to overcome and we had all of it and some! Even though we came through it all and continued no matter what blocks stood in our way it is now time for us to go out on a high note.
After being to so many countries and having the amazing, loyal and dedicated fanbase we do, this has been an immensely hard decision for us.
There are many obstacles in the music industry and we can no longer fight the uphill battle to keep going.
We would like to thank our friends and families for their undying support over the years, our manager, our crew, our label, all of the amazing bands we have toured with and every single person who bought our records, came out to shows, pillaged our Merch, bought us beers and generally made this the experience of an entire lifetime! You are the reason that all of this was possible and we will never forget it.
Thank you all so much for your love and support and for showing us how music can bring so much happiness.
We love you all and always will”.

James Britton, Luke Davies, Leon Kemp, James Cook and Steven Nixon.
