Ringworm touring East Coast, recording

. . .

“RINGWORM IS and ALWAYS shall be a KILLING MACHINE. We expect maximum attendance at every show on this east coast run of shows. NOTHING ELSE WILL BE ACCEPTED BUT TOTAL RAGERS, PERIOD… Expect extreme intensity. Get off your message boards and actually go to a show and GET INTO IT, YOU FUCKS. If you’re underage, get a fake ID and tell your grandkids about it when you’re at one of our shows moshing with them. Suck it! xoxo”

Ringworm have high hopes for their fans this March, when the band embarks on a short stint of dates that will include stops in the Northeast. The Cleveland thrash/brutal hardcore crew (and killing machine, of course) will use the dates as a primer to record their new LP and follow-up to Scars, which hit on Victory in 2011. So far, no word on who’ll jump on with Human Furnace for this set of dates, but recent trips have included members of Keelhaul and former Pulling Teeth guitarist/A389 Records honcho Dom Romeo.

Speaking of Cleveland hardcore and Keelhaul, make sure to catch the great Inmates (mem Integrity, Keelhaul) on the East Coast this weekend. Though not quite of the thrash-y variety, the band’s brutal hardcore sits nicely in the Negative Approach/early Agnostic Front groove.

Dom Romeo’s A389 bash kicks off next week and features the reported final appearance from Left for Dead, as well as appearances from Catharsis (who are touring), Despise You, Lack of Interest, Weekend Nachos, Integrity, Gehenna, and many many others. Head below for video interviews with the A389 label head.
