Hurts So Good: Pains and Church Tongue at Basement Transmissions
Basement Transmissions is bringing the pain with one of the heaviest hardcore shows
Thursday, April 19
Basement Transmissions is bringing the pain with one of the heaviest hardcore shows to come to Erie in months.
Pains, on tour from Chicago, unleashes devastating fury on their five track EP, Drown the Earth, one of the angriest releases I've heard in some time. Each track fades into the next, almost making the full EP feel as if it were just one long hardcore song. If it were, the song's breakdown would be the track "The Mouth," by far the heaviest song on the album.
Touring with Pains are Church Tongue, from Indianapolis. Church Tongue's 2016 full-length album Heart Failure touches on many different subgenres of hardcore, at times sounding melodic, other times sounding like mid-2000's metalcore, with beatdown and mosh riffs sprinkled everywhere in between.
Local opening acts include Erie hardcore young bucks, Livid Life, Erie metalcore band, Of Shadows, and Narwhal Bloodbath. So come out to Basement Transmissions to support the bands and mosh your socks off. — Tommy Shannon
