Ringworm at Acheron, Jan 2013 (more by Keith Marlowe)

. . .

Cleveland crossover band Ringworm are not only touring again,they’re recording again. The band have completed work on a limited edition three-song 10-inch EP that is currently available for pre-order. Ringworm’s new EP, Bleed, um, erupts on September 17 via Relapse.

Ringworm, the band, erupted in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1991 from Cleveland, where the local hardcore scene quickly expanded to cover much of the northeast. Their first recording, The Promise dropped in 1993 and the band was later sidelined by line up changes and lack of inertia.

But, the infection is back, and the band will hit the road for two weeks this fall with label-mates Howl and Call of the Void. Just like their music, this tour is relentless: a different show in a different state every night. Two shows are planned prior to the tour--Ringworm will appear in Baltimore, Maryland (at the A389 Summer Extermination), and in Erie, Pennsylvania.
