Disposing of Betrayers

The End Records have released the details of the new album from These Are They. Disposing of Betrayers is the follow-up to their 2009 album Who Linger, and focuses on Chicago’s deep and complex history of organized crime. The lyrics through the new album will utilize and rediscover actual events taken from newspaper articles. Here is what vocalist Paul Kuhr had to say about the album, “Taking a topic like Chicago crime history, and still making it a death metal record, posed more of a challenge for Steve and me, who wrote all the lyrics. I think the crushing production, aggressive riffing and drumming, and the interesting topic all came together to create what I feel is an amazing recording. I'm quite proud of this one.” The album will be released on September 14th.

NC Artists on the Rise: Beloved Rogue

Beloved Rogue is 3 friends.  Alex and Sean, who grew up here in Brooklyn, and Mike who moved to town many years ago from Boston. He had started Beloved Rogue a few years back. Previously involved in other projects, they soon bonded over a love of BJM, the Lilys and Serena Maneesh. Getting together at Seaside Lounge Studios near Sunset Park they put together a 3 song EP “Polaurora”. It includes the video and single “Daysleeping” which contains some nice jangly pop moments in its 6 minute run. The other songs on the EP run down the indie road towards the middle of the pavement, we particularly like the mellower Capital Sense. Upcoming shows this summer include the Northside Fest at Bar Matchless on June 26th. Look for some road dates and another single coming soon. - Simon Heggie
