Fresh Streams is a new segment we’re doing, which will pop up as it fits with our calendar. On these posts you’ll find album streams of bands that are playing the Empty Bottle in the coming days/weeks/months. For music fans who are constantly inundated with music news and new records, we think this will be exstreamly useful (sorry! / you’re welcome?). There’s a lot to sift through each week, so if we miss something, shoot us a comment with the link and we’ll add it to the list (and maybe even comp you a ticket to that show)… Give a listen to the fresh new albums below — these bands wouldn’t be playing here if we didn’t like em!
Savannah, Georgia based three-piece, TRIATHALON released the second single from their second full length album, Nothing Bothers Me, out November 13th on Broken Circles Records. Go stream it via Aint-Bad Magazine, and get tickets to watch ’em take on our stage Wednesday, November 4th!
The Forth Worth, Texas-based experimental “goth-wave” duo PINKISH BLACK are back with the release of their third LP, Bottom of the Morning, out FRIDAY, 10/30 via Relapse Records. You can stream the album now on Noisey before you buy your tickets to catch them opening for ZOMBI on Thursday, November 5th!
VIDEO // MIDNIGHT RERUNS
On Monday, November 9th, our Free Monday series gets some tough lovin, courtesy of hard-nosed Texas punks VIDEO and Milwaukee rock & rollers MIDNIGHT RERUNS. The new single from VIDEO, “Shackles”, is a razor sharp dose of blistering post-punk… or “hate wave” as they like to call it. Their new record, The Entertainers, is out THIS FRIDAY on Third Man Records, and the band calls it “The greatest record since Leather Leather” (their first record).
MIDNIGHT RERUNS are pullin’ out the big guns with the release of their second full length album Force of Nurture, out on Milwaukee’s Dusty Medical Records (other releases from bands such as BLACK LIPS, STRANGE BOYS, CALL ME LIGHTNING). You can stream the full album via Bandcamp (below), and make sure you don’t miss these power-pop thrashers, along with Chicago’s CLEARANCE & MAMA for that stacked FREE MONDAY on November 9th!
