    VAZ are returning to Europe along with an old group you might remember called HAMMERHEAD. Makes sense as they share members, right? Well, you asked for it. Can you handle this double-fisting? Here’s a poster for a show in Prague that the two acts are co-headlining..

    Prizehog Low Freq Extend

    After getting to know our Portland via San Francisco brothers and sister over the years, experiencing mind-blastedness from multiple live encounters, and falling hard for their LP on the legendary GRAVITY RECORDS as well as their self-released work, we were..elated…when, while hanging out at TOSHI KASAI’s recording studio out in California, we decided to put together a very special Prizehog release on SGG.

    The title implies what you’re getting into with this beast. Head over to our store for more specs and to grab a copy before they’re gone.

    Speaking of Prizehog, they’re playing the excellent TOTAL FEST in Missoula this weekend along with WOOLEN MEN , Wolf Eyes, and a slew of others.

    Joining Multicult on this very special evening are Couch Slut, Chamber of Discipline(Vaz, Pygmy Shrews members) and Vulture Shit.

Texan upstarts Coma in Algiers and local co-ed ripper unit Couch Slut round out the bill. Oh, and, again, VAZ. So, we’ll be seeing you.
