Coliseum news and notes

Louisville, Kentucky's Coliseum has officially announced the addition of drummer Carter Wilson to their line-up. Coliseum's Ryan Patterson (guitar/vocals) had the following to say: "Carter hails from Birmingham and we tracked him down on the suggestion of Young Widows, who we thank very much for the tip. He joined the band in August and has seamlessly learned our old songs while diving headlong into new material. Many movies, burritos and good times have been shared in the last few months and we look forward to many more down the road. We'll be hitting the road this month for the first time since June, debuting some new songs and playing our first batch of shows with Carter." Regarding touring, Patterson adds, "We'll be playing a last minute surprise show at Skull Alley in Louisville on Wednesday, Oct 14th, then headed a bit southeast for a secret free show on Friday, Oct 16th at the hometown of the Biltmore Estate with our good friends and labelmates who are celebrating a new album release next week... A 'blue' album, if you will... Starting Oct 28th, we'll be joining Russian Circles and Young Widows for a brief run through the South, stopping off at The Fest in Gainesville and Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, where we'll all share the stage with not only the almighty Jesus Lizard, but Flipper, 7 Seconds, Melt Banana, The Night Marchers and more! Wow." Meanwhile, Coliseum continues to write material for their next full-length. According to Patterson, "We're deep into the writing process, taking broad steps to cross some new ground and challenge ourselves with different approaches to songwriting." Tracking will commence in January with J. Robbins (Jawbreaker) at the helm.
