For the second time, we are honored to host the incredible supergroup, CORRECTIONS HOUSE, featuring Mike IX Williams (Eyehategod), Scott Kelly (Neurosis), Sanford Parker (Minsk/Buried at Sea) and Bruce Lamont (Yakuza/Brain Tentacles). Although all their previous acts are experimental in sound, all the rock elements have been stripped away and replaced with industrial horrorscapes and the vocal sounds of Mike IX at his most depraved. They were a new act last time they played here and completely blew us away, but after several releases and tours under their belt, we are very excited to see what they have in store this time around. CH will be joined on tour by STATIQBLOOM, the solo industrial/ebm of Brooklyn's Fade Kainer, who also fronts Batillus and Inswarm! They will be joined by another supergroup of the local variety, DARKHOLLOWFALLS, in their first show as a fully realized lineup. They feature Brandon Marcey (Cough/Sinister Haze), Chad Davis (Hour of 13/Tasha Yar/Anu) and Jonathan "JK" Kassalow (Lost Tribe/Caves Caverns), and we expect it to be some sort of otherworldy hybrid between doom, industrial and synth-bliss. Also playing will be another act sometimes featuring JK with DAGGERING, whose tripped-out noise-metal is one of our favorite local live performers, and feature the combined efforts of usual solo performers Dyrt, Floodbeast, Scant and Thieves of Shiloh. Lastly we've just added opening act RYAN KENT. RYAN KENT is known for fronting Gritter, but on this night he will be doing spoken word from his books Poems For Dead People and Whore Throne.

CORRECTIONS HOUSE, STATIQBLOOM, DARKHOLLOWFALLS, DAGGERING & RYAN KENT are coming to Strange Matter Thursday, December 4th. CLICK HERE TO BUY TICKETS!
