man and his symbols

Adam Torres has been hard at work over the past year, putting together some fantastic new work in preparation for big things to come in 2015, starting with a tour out west to kick things off later this month. Click the poster below to check out Adam's site for more details on these shows.

Additionally, Adam's 2006 release Nostra Nova will be re-released in April on vinyl c/o Misra Records and is currently available to pre-order here. Check out this recent interview with Adam in which he discusses music, literature and his past, present, and future with Highway Hearts, then revisit the classic track "Breakneck Jane's Fifteen Minute Escape" with this video directed by Brian Wiebe.

Romantic States are bringing the caravan down south this weekend with shows in Virginia and North Carolina. If you're in the area for one of these fine gigs, make sure to stop on by:
Big Hush cassettes are now officially sold out from the DZ merch store, but if you missed picking up a copy you can still get them at the Dischord Records distro while supplies last.

And lastly, I've been keeping pretty busy with a new project gathering audio archives of events from the DC DIY scene and have yet to post any of the live recordings I've captured since late last year, but I thought it'd be nice to cap off this post by sharing the music of Emperor X from his DC show last month. Take a listen and stay tuned for more live recordings in the very near future!
