Somos pays tribute to its late guitarist Phil Haggerty

We are sad to report that one of New England's own, Phil Haggerty, has passed away, the Somos guitarist was 28. The Boston-based band, heartbroken as it is, stepped up by releasing their initially fall scheduled album Prison On A Hill early. The album's proceeds went toward the family's funeral expenses, with an additional $3,000 donated to the Heather Heyer Foundation. The band's sound has always been characterized by its high-energy and no-holds-barred approach. The group's latest single "Mediterranean" is a prime example of the massive sound of Somos: string instrument swells, heavy drums, and Haggerty's electric guitar work fuel the single. Our support is with the Haggerty family and the remaining band members during this difficult time. We are streaming "Mediterranean" below. - Rene Cobar

   

Dark Trip - New Dark Punk Video "Sick", Rippin' at The Baby G 08.25

Brand new video here from Toronto’s dark punk band Dark Trip. They released a self-titled EP earlier this year featuring six quick n’ creepy songs. This single “Sick” was originally written a couple years ago following a string of mass shootings and although written a while ago is unfortunately still relevant today. The video has a very DIY feel to it but almost in a non-DIY way. It looks like it was shot with the same camera as Stone Temple Pilot’s Big Bang Baby. It’s got that straight ahead down stroke rhythm driving the song with some nice lead licks frolicking over top. Catch Dark Trip live at The Baby G on August 25th along with Cave Curse, Wave of Terror and Chilldozer. – Kris Gies

The current Deli Toronto Band O’ The Month is getting ready to release brand new EP! Hailing from Parkdale; Laurie are a quirky noise rock trio whose songs touch on everyday life in a self-deprecating and loud way! The new 5 song EP titled “Group Dynamics” covers subjects such as coping with death, feeling trapped in a broken relationship and the frustrations of a 9-5 life. The opening track “Locked” sets the tone with the drums thumping and bass rolling alongside heavily psyched out guitars. The vocals have a slight dose of Brit-rock inspiration and the lyrics are straight forward and sincere. Hear the new tunes live at Hard Luck on Friday August 16th along with Tijuana Taxi and New York’s Laveda. “Group Dynamics” is available now! – Kris Gies
