Algorithmic Death - Harrisonburg

9pm $7

Come celebrate the release of our new LP

"From the opening chords of their sophomore full length, ‘Spinning In The Void’, it is clear that Earthling has reached beyond the confines of tradition to carve their own niche in the world of extreme music. Charging with a Motorhead like speed, the band cleverly twists and turns through spiraling darkness. Primitive yet visionary, Earthling returns with a devastating follow up to to their acclaimed debut, 2013’s Dark Path.

While songs like, “Howl” and “Obedience & Decay” reveal a bleak, apocalyptic tone, as a whole the album represents a well versed group with a firm grasp on a promising future. Cutting their teeth on tours with the likes of Inter Arma and Baroness, Earthling has fully captured the ferocity of their live shows in these six songs.

Spearheaded by a savage guitar sound and cutthroat vocals, ‘Spinning In The Void’, is harnessed by a strong, classic approach. Recorded and mixed by Chris ‘Scary’ Adams (Black Tusk, Corsair) at Old Dominion Studio in Scottsville, VA and mastered by Mikey Allred (Inter Arma, Yautja) at Dark Art Studios in Nashville, TN, Forcefield Records is excited to unleash this long awaited record from one of it’s heaviest hitters.

‘Spinning In The Void’ will be released July 7th, 2017 on vinyl and digital. Artwork from Matt Slime (Coffin Dust, Bat) on reverse board jackets and uncoated 300 gram inserts. The first pressing consists of 300 black, 150 red smoke, and 150 on black in clear with silver splatter. The band will be playing regional record release shows July 3rd, 4th, and 5th in Harrisonburg, Richmond, and Raleigh, respectively with a summer East Coast tour to follow."

Boy Harsher + Ships in the Night + True Body

Boy Harsher + Ships in the Night + True Body

Boy Harsher (Savannah, GA) - Dark Electronic

Boy Harsher is a dark electronic duo that produces gritty dance beats infused with ethereal vocals, creating a sound that is eerie, intense and incredibly danceable. Augustus Muller develops the underbelly of sound with minimal beats and grinding synths, where Jae Matthews whispers, screams and chants on top. Together, the music created is somewhere between industrial, drone and confessional storytelling. Muller and Matthews both have a strong background in film and their cinematic approach translates effectively in both their recordings and live performance.

Ships In The Night (Charlottesville) - "Like a sad dream that offers you comfort near the end yet leaves you in tears as as your sullen eyes open to reality, Ships In The Night is a chillingly dark electronic project from out of Charlottesville, Virginia headed by Alethea Leventhal. She belongs to an ever expanding group of musicians who are being labeled under the dream pop, dark pop, goth pop, or whatever pop you would like. The point being that this is not your standard radio chatter that flits with the rest of the monotonous radio play. Leventhal's celestial voice made me float in ethereal clouds as her emotions breathed life into myself and weaved aura to her will. " -- BRUTAL RESONANCE (Sweden)

True Body (Virginia Beach) - "The sounds of racing hearts and racing engines stepping over 'the dual corpses of indifference and apathy.' Rock N roll for today, bloody with honesty. Dance and cry, in equal measure."

Spotlights + Special Guests

Spotlights + Special Guests

Spotlights is the Brooklyn-based married couple of Mario and Sarah Quintero, both formerly of Sleep Lady, whose 2012 album So Long Lonely Ghost was produced by Aaron Harris of Isis.

In Spotlights, the Quinteros summon a supreme sound, equally heavy and dreamy. A tar-pit sludge-rock foundation is blanketed by layers of shimmering shoegaze. Their debut full length Tidals was released on Crowquill Records in the spring of 2016 as a follow up to the synth laden, doom-pop EP, Demonstration. Tidals' songs rock hard and memorably, bringing to mind hints of bands, from Failure to My Bloody Valentine to Godflesh to Smashing Pumpkins and beyond.
