Coliseum will be opening for Baroness next Friday, June 14th at Mr Smalls Theater. The event is part of Mr Smalls 10th Anniversary Celebration happening this month. The band is also celebrating their tenth anniversary of existence recently releasing their fourth proper LP. The album is entitled Sister Faith released this past April on Temporary Residence Ltd Records. The Louisville based trio plays a brand of punk, hard rock and post hardcore that blend together into a wall of noise.
From their bio:
The first album to be recorded in producer J. Robbins' recently relocated Magpie Cage Studios, Sister Faith is also the first Coliseum recording to feature new bassist, Kayhan Vaziri, in addition to contributions from some of the groups' closest friends and musical peers: Wata of Boris, J. Robbins (Jawbox, Burning Airlines), Jason Farrell (Swiz, Bluetip), Elizabeth Elmore (Sarge, The Reputation), Chris Colohan (Burning Love, Cursed), Sam James Velde (Night Horse, Bluebird), and Jason Loewenstein (Sebadoh, The Fiery Furnaces) all make small but memorable contributions.
John Baizley of Baroness recently wrote, "Musical progression tends to come at the expense of quality or ethics, and Coliseum have sacrificed neither. Though punk-rock may have been the template (and paradigms DO shift), songwriting and emotional content have become Coliseums focus, and to that end they have gracefully transitioned from the unrelenting anger, rage, and rawness of youth to a more thought-provoking, yet no-less-powerful or insightful sound that is entirely their own." Sister Faith is the encapsulation of that slow and steady transition, the new peak of Coliseum's highly creative and inspiring career.
Show begins at 8p with doors at 7p. Tickets are $15 and can be found here. More information about the band at these sites:
