Two months after revealing their resurrection and reformation, DIRGE WITHIN are ready to make new “Memories” with the release of their comeback single, available today on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and other digital outlets.

What's the best news I'm gonna share here on THE ROCK FATHER today? It's that ALLEGAEON have announced the "Get Rekt" Tour, and in addition to including THE AGONIST on select dates, my boys, PRODUCT OF HATE (PoH) will be along for nearly the entire run. As some of you may know, in addition to running this website, I do have some other irons in the fire, one of which is serving as Co-Manager for PRODUCT OF HATE - my dear friends, who I've known since 2009 and have been working with since 2010. PRODUCT OF HATE will be touring in support of their debut album for NAPALM Records, which is currently being mixed by James Murphy (TESTAMENT, DEATH, OBITUARY) at SafeHouse Production in Florida. While a release date has not yet been set, you can check out the band doing what they do best when they roll through town with their brothers and sisters from ALLEGAEON and THE AGONIST. First-round dates below with more to-be-announced...

The lyric video premiered earlier today at Revolver Magazine, and now I'm sharing it below. Dig the song? Get it now via iTunes or Amazon...

Back in 1966, Napoleon XIV released a sonic oddity called "They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa!" - a song that has often emerged during the Halloween season as a bizarre addition to the spooky, seasonal playlist. While it's popularity has dwindled over the years, the BUTCHER BABIES have brought it back for 2014, metalizing it for their recent covers EP, UNCOVERED (released via Century Media). For 31 Days of Halloween this year, I'm adding it to the playlist, fueled by the release of their new, slasher-eque music video. See it below, but don't show the kids!
