Coliseum - "Doing Time"

The excellent Louisville trio Coliseum were responsible for one of 2010’s most exciting releases, House With A Curse — a raging inferno of massive hardcore anthems with enough energy to power a small revolution, but with a mineshaft depth (and slew of guests) that marked the album very much as a document of its birthplace. They’re following up House this year with Sister Faith — produced by J. Robbins of Jawbox/Burning Airlines, who worked on House, too — and everything I’ve heard off the new album (first “Black Magic Punks” and now “Doing Time”) indicates another triumph, perhaps even a greater triumph. “Doing Time” has the post-hardcore angles and instrumental nuance of Quicksand (or Jawbox, frankly), a chant-along chorus that could have come out of the NYHC ’80s, and enormous low end that gives the thing a center of gravity and firepower worthy of a Stryker M1134. Listen.

Sister Faith is available for pre-order via Temporary Residence.

Additionally Coliseum has launched a “Vault” sale where they’re selling rare copies and test presses of most everything they’ve released, along with a lot of Auxiliary Records titles by Breather Resist, Young Widows, and Lords. (Auxiliary Records is the label run by Coliseum frontman Ryan Patterson.) They’re donating 25% of the proceeds to Callum Robbins, J. Robbins’ son who has Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA), to help with his ongoing care and medical bills. Cal is having a huge surgery in June. You have no excuse not to buy a ton of cool shit.
