Coliseum announces EP, tour dates

Official press release: Founded by Ryan Patterson (Black Cross, National Acrobat) over a half decade ago, and since solidified by Mike Pascal and Chris Maggio, Coliseum have grown to become today's quintessential contemporary hardcore/punk band. Successfully melding their progressive musicianship, punk fervor, and vital political/social awareness into one intense vision. Originally based in straight-ahead hardcore and classic punk, Coliseum have continued to progress with each recorded effort. Before finding a permanent home on Relapse Records in 2006, Coliseum released music on both Ryan's own Auxiliary label, as well as on Level Plane Records. Coliseum's first full length for Relapse, "No Salvation", was released in the summer of 2007 and was met by praise from critics and kids alike. To celebrate the longtime friendship between Coliseum and Deathwish Inc., we are proud to announce the upcoming release of Coliseum's "True Quiet/Last Wave" 7" EP. Featuring artwork by friend John Dyer Baizley (Baroness, Kylesa), "True Quiet / Last Wave" gives us the first taste of Coliseum's evolution since 2007's "No Salvation." The hook laden A Side "True Quiet" takes hold with its all too familiar story of self imposed isolation, told to a dc influenced metallic jangle. While the percussively driven B Side "Last Wave" serves as a hair raising commentary on the ethical and economical darkness of our present day. Both songs collectively embodying the honest artistry that defines Coliseum at their very core. A new Coliseum album is due out on Relapse sometime in the future. 3/20 Chicago, IL @ Subtterranean 3/21 Toronto, ON @ Adrift Clubhouse w/ Bane, Have Heart 3/22 Montreal, QC @ Underworld w/ Converge, Rise and Fall, Pulling Teeth, Ceremony 3/23 Allston, MA @ ICC 3/24 Buffalo, NY @ Mohawk Place 3/25 Cleveland, OH @ The Grog Shop 3/26 Lemoyne, PA @ Championship 3/27 Brooklyn, NY @ Europa 3/28 Richmond, VA @ Alley Katz 3/29 Philadelphia, PA @ The Church w/ Genghis Tron w/ Young Livers 3/30 Wilmington, NC @ Lucky's 4/01 Orlando, FL @ Black Box Collective 4/02 Miami, FL @ Churchills 4/03 Lake Worth, FL @ Klein Dance Studio 4/04 Tampa, FL @ Transitions 4/05 Gainseville, FL @ Atlantic 4/07 Birmingham, AL @ Cave 9 4/08 Atlanta, GA @ Drunken Unicorn 4/09 Memphis, TN @ Hi Tone 4/10 Louisville, KY @ Skull Alley
