First Cold Blue Mountain Show of 2016

Cold Blue Mountain Show

Hey, so long time no talk, right? We’ve been busy dicking off, playing in our other shitty bands, working our infinitely shittier jobs, and going about our lives. BUT we’ve also been fucking with some new jams. And shit is sounding TIGHT *air horn sound*

We’ve also finally got of asses enough to play a show in 2016. April 1st at Ye Olde Cafe Coda in Chico with Un and Hissing both on tour from the rainy shores of Seattle, WA. Peep the poster by the one and only Matt Loomis and come out to hear some new songs. RSVP here.

And we finally got our shit together enough to post the 100% OFFICIAL tour dates, which can be found below.

“Seed of Dissent” Video Trailer / September Tour Dates

To commemorate the forthcoming repress of our album “Old Blood” on vinyl (pre-order that shit via Halo of Flies here) we decided to make a video for the first song of that album, “Seed of Dissent.” The trailer for that video, also coming soon, can be seen above. We’re also getting ready to get our asses back on the road, to the Northwest, Midwest, and beyond, including a stop at this year’s Bayview Bash in Milwaukee, September 19. Check the tour dates on our tour page and holla atcha boys!

Epic Fest 2


Epic Fest 2 PosterNow that we’re home from our little Northwest tour, we’re gonna take a few weeks off to hopefully write some more songs, go to our jobs that actually pay money, and do other cool shit like sweat our goddamn asses off in the hellish climate of Chico, CA. BUT, the next show we have on the docket is worth the wait: we’re headlining the second day of Epic Fest, a two-day heavy music festival in Chico taking place July 24th and 25th. Sesar and Brandon have been putting this thing together for months and have assembled not only the best heavy bands from Northern California, but also some of our favorite bands from other parts of the state and other states completely. Should be a fucking badass time. You can purchase tickets online here and get the full rundown on Facebook.

Some Serious Crucialfestage

We made our way this past week to Salt Lake City for Crucialfest 5, playing some rad shows with our dudes North and Secrets of the Sky on the way out, and playing some equally badass shows on the way back to California (including tonight in Sacramento with Castle!) But the reason for the season was definitely Crucialfest. We had a great time, and play some live jams, including an as-yet-untitled new song that we have been working on for a little bit and hope to record for something or someone soon. Check the video above and keep your eyes peeled for some fall tourdates coming real soon.

Usnea DLP Release at White Owl Social Club in Portland

Cold Blue Mountain Pos

Fucking unreal stoked to make the trip up north this weekend to play Usnea’s record release show this Saturday at White Owl Social Club in Portland with Lord Dying. On the way, we’re playing at the Wandering Goat in Eugene on Thursday night and Cryptatropa in Olympia Friday night. Gonna be tight to see some buds eat some chimichangas and perhaps sample the libations of the Cascadian region.

UPDATE: also just realized this show is on 12/13/14 which is incredibly badass in a silly numerological kind of way but also in a fuck yeah life rules kind of way.
