Some cool news...

I've been chomping at the bit to announce this one for a while... These are the most collaborative songs we've ever written, each containing a lot of things that we'd been trying to attain for some time now. The packaging is also going to be really amazing... Inspired by Pushead's Bacteria Sour 7"s, I enlisted our pal John Baizley to do the spider & web artwork, and it will feature a 2-color spot printed vellum sleeve over a full color seven inch jacket limited to 1000 copies with this packaging. Very excited about this entire thing... From the music to the design, I think it's a big new step for us.


COLISEUM “True Quiet / Last Wave” 7"EP out soon, winter/spring tour dates announced...

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, 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, Cursed), "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 Dischord 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 in 2010.

Young Livers is an excellent band. What's not excellent is that this tour is not coming thru Texass. Ah, well.
