NORTHLESS - LIGHT BEARER Split LP
2011 as told in 15-item bursts
2011 for NORTHLESS was as insanely productive and mind-blowing as any of us has ever had musically. We found our bass player, Jerry Hauppa. We played a ton of shows all over the eastern half of the country, we made a ton of new friends, played with incredible bands, and released a record we're all extremely proud of. Through the tireless efforts of Adam Bartlett of Gilead Media and Cory Von Bohlen from Halo of Flies, we showed up on... Read More
Shop Gilead Media
Our friend and partner Adam Bartlett at Gilead Media was put in an uncomfortable position when the Independent Label Collective cratered earlier in the year. That has made it difficult for him to realize his vision for the label. Read all about it here.
Without Adam, we never would have been able to release Clandestine Abuse the way we wanted to. It's through his tireless efforts and myriad connections that we were able to get word out about the work we'd done. We're incredibly... Read More

MAXIMUM ROCK N ROLL issue #337 review of Clandestine Abuse
"Halo of Flies records and the Milwaukee and Green Bay area have produced a lot of great bands in the last two years, so i was excited to listen to another discovery/release from the area. NORTHLESS were a bit of a surprise in the that their sound is never really metal and never really hardcore. This falls someplace in the middle but could safely be considered sludge metal. Think middle-era NEUROSIS or faster THOU or the pummeling of BISON BC. That's all a stretch as this... Read More

Clandestine Abuse Review on Teeth of the Divine
"both sides of the LP are pretty much rooted in heavy ebbs and flows of powerfully rendered and crumbling earthy sludge and post rock, that cuts out most of the atmospheric fluff and build up in favor of direct emotional mid paced pounding."

Day Three of tour, and we are still alive.
One of our greatest concerns coming into this tour was the health of the Pork Chop Express, otherwise known as the Van What Ended The Last Tour (with help). So far, so good.
We're currently in Louisville, and the last two shows have gone pretty well. The Southgate house was noteworthy for the utterly gymnastic load in as well as the quality of the other 4 bands. Everybody was great to us, and we're excited to get the opportunity to play up there again. The folks at the Dojo in Indianapolis the night before were also wondferful hosts, and made us feel welcome.
