Remember Days of Worth? The 5 piece rock act were signed to Visible Noise back in 2005 and they released a massively overlooked record called The Western Mechanism. In honour of the album’s 10th anniversary the band are reforming for a one-off show at The Fighting Cocks in Kingston on the 11th of July. Support will come from Freeze the Atlantic who’s members come from bands like Hundred Reasons, Reuben and Laruso. This is a show you will not want to miss.
Check out the video to State of Me by the band below and check out vocalist Simon Griffith’s current band Radio Alcatraz if you like your post hardcore.
Normally a one-man black metal behemoth, Caïna will play a full band show at the Camden Black Heart in honour of his 10th anniversary under the Caïna name.
Caïna take to the stage at the Camden Black Heart on July 5th with support from fellow Church of Fuck luminaries Esoteric Youth and Old Skin. Tickets can be bought for £6 in advance from Bleak Metal or you’ll have to pay £8 on the door.
Caïna is also taking set-list requests so if you want to hear the band play a specific song from their back catalogue you can head over to Caïna’s Facebook page and request up to 3 songs. In addition to all this the show will also be filmed for a future Caïna release.
We recently reviewed the latest Caïna material which forms a part of the Esoteric Youth / Caïna split that is due out on Church of Fuck soon. Read our review here and pre-order the limited edition cassette here.
