Black Hole Smile on the Internet!

A couple of warmup / preview posts in anticipation of Black Hole Smile's imminent release....

PURE GRAIN AUDIO was way cool in offering to premier a stream of the entire album on their site. They are purveyors of all things Canadian-rock so it's very cool to be included (awesome side-note: they premiered a track by CANCELLED (a side project of MARC BORGOUN'S [FUCK THE FACTS, GREBER] the very same day!). You can find the stream right HERE.

TERRA RELICTA also posted a little writeup with a link to the album on Soundcloud. You can find that particular article right HERE.

Some pre-orders for cassettes are trickling in which is very cool. Visit the bandcamp page if you're as enamoured with cassettes as I am. HERE.

STEVE VARGAS (of BIIPIIGWAN, THE GREAT SABATINI, GREBER and just one of my very favourite drummers) hosts a podcast called TAKER WIDE. He's had me on as a guest once before and he was nice enough to invite me back! Check out the episode and settle in for some real gritty talk about drums, kids, dads, rocker dads, kids of rocker dads, dads who drum, kids of dads who drum and chess.

BLACK HOLE SMILE - Cassette / Digital Pre-Order Now Available!

I can't believe I'm finally starting the roll-out process on this album. The one I started working on in January of 2015!!! I think I'll lay off the concept albums for a few release. Now I see why VOIVOD took a "break" from things in the form of ANGEL RAT.

Anyways, pay a visit to the TSTAT bandcamp page and stream a few tracks. Pre-order yourself a cassette copy of the album, if you're into that kind of thing. It comes with a download code, of course.
