What I Heard This Morning: Coliseum

Post-hardcore trio, Coliseum, will be releasing an EP dubbed, Parasites, via Temporary Residence Ltd. mid-November. Recorded at Inner Ear Studios (quite a legacy: Bad Brains, Fugazi, Rites of Spring...etc.) and produced by Jawbox frontman, J. Robbins, Coliseum’s promise for a solid new release comes through their latest single, “Waiting (Too Late).” A video has been procured and attached.

The band is currently playing shows with Boris and Tera Melos and will be touring throughout the rest of October with alternating guests. All info, tour dates and links come to you via PMA PR:


Louisville, KY/Birmingham, AL power trio Coliseum is set to embark on a stateside tour supporting Japanese doom/sludge faves Boris in mid-October. Shortly after the tour, Coliseum will release the explosive eight song Parasites EP on November 15th via Temporary Residence Ltd.

Parasites EP is the follow up and companion piece to their critically acclaimed third album, House With A Curse ­ and their first release since this year's wildly popular and sought-after Record Store Day split release with Superchunk. The bulk of Parasites was produced and recorded by J. Robbins (Jawbox, Burning Airlines, etc.) at Washington, DC's legendary Inner Ear Studios, the site of classic recordings from Bad Brains, Fugazi, Lungfish, Rites of Spring and countless others. Rounded out by tracks recorded during the House With A Curse sessions, the Parasites EP shows Coliseum defying expectations and showcasing some of their most infectious anti-anthems and blazing hardcore tirades to date.

For the cover art, the band enlisted illustrator Rick Froberg, singer and guitarist of post-hardcore pioneers Drive Like Jehu, Hot Snakes, and Obits. Known for his fine art and unique album covers for his own bands, Froberg's art rarely graces other bands' releases, and his singular style gives Parasites EP a brilliant look and feel, and ­ like the music within ­ twists the trademark Coliseum aesthetic into new and exciting directions.
