Friday, May 12, 2006 4:32 PM PT


Official press release:

Willowtip Records is proud to announce the signing of Rochester's Sulaco. Featuring former members of the legendary Lethargy and Kalibas, Sulaco will release its brand new full-length, Tearing Through The Roots, this summer via Willowtip. With previous releases through Relapse (2003's self-titled EP) and a split with Soilent Green via Crash and Burn Cartel, Sulaco have established themselves as a band playing a style that is "spasmodically progressive as it is abrasively visceral." Tearing Through The Roots marks the bands first ever full-length and continues in their tradition of amazing musicianship, progressive songwriting, and the best forward-thinking metal available today. The release date is set for August 22, 2006.

I don't even know what 3 Kings Tavern is. I think Willowtip has some great bands, but they all need to find new booking agents.

Good band, doesn't hold a candle to Lethargy though.

Will they be selling glass pipes on tour?

Good band, isn't this old news?

fcking killer

This band totally deserves this. A band like this being unsigned for as long as they have is a crime.
