News Coalesce’s Comeback
posted by June 19 at 13:48 PMon
Influential hardcore act Coalesce has announced plans for a new recording and a new tour set to kick off in August. Frontman Sean Ingram send us a note about the tour: “Instead of looking at coalesce as a second career or some ego-stroking project to prove something within modern music, it is being held closely and personally by the members as their time to put aside familial duties, work, school, or whatnot, and simply “do it.” In short, we just want to hang out together again and play our shows out of a peculiar love for doing so (in all it’s ugly purity).
“Please let us make it very clear that this is not a ‘reunion’ tour in any way shape or form. Since it’s simply the nature of Coalesce to come and go as it pleases, terms like “reunion” make no sense when applied to it.”
The band plans to release a new 7-inch and DVD, and they’re also going to re-press There Is Nothing New Under the Sun. As for touring, they’ve only got a handful of East Coast dates with Daughters for now.
My favorite post-Coalesce project? Reggie and the Full Effect is fun, but it’s gotta bet the Casket Lottery. Definitely the Casket Lottery.
