IRON TONGUE, PALLBEARER, WINDHAND
10 p.m. White Water Tavern. $5.
In case you missed it, the Times last week published a feature about Iron Tongue and their forthcoming record, produced by metal maestro Billy Anderson for release on Neurot Recordings. The album won't be out until February, but it'll be worth the wait. Until then, you can enjoy the Iron Tongue live show, which is killer.
Pallbearer's incredible "Sorrow and Extinction" is one of 2012's best albums of any genre and is sure to top many critics' year-end lists come December. It's getting a vinyl release Aug. 28 on 20 Buck Spin. In a couple weeks, they'll hit the road as the headliner for an 11-day tour sponsored by Scion A/V, with Seattle's Samothrace and Atlanta's Royal Thunder. This show is Pallbearer's first with drummer Mark Lierly, who's played in a number of bands, including Soophie Nun Squad, Sugar and the Raw and R.I.O.T.S.
Windhand is a killer five-piece out of Richmond, Va. They conjure up smoked-out doomy atmosphere and bitchin' riffs aplenty on their self-titled album, released back in March.
