We are psyched to announce that Shitstorm will tour with BORIS and EARTH over the summer of 2016! BORIS are good friends of ours and we are very honored to have been asked to join such a massive trip! For the occasion, Vinyl Rites will be repressing the Paranoid Existence LP limited to 150 copies with hand silkscreened covers. There will also be CD copies of Paranoid Existence courtesy of RCP Tapes & Records. We'll also have our splits with Conga Fury and Radiation available as well as some new noise tapes, t-shirts, and a few distro items! These will likely be Shitstorm's last shows of 2016, so don't miss your chance to see them.
Lots of people have been asking what's going on with us. We still plan on finishing our splits with Suppression, Jeff Carey and D.O.C. by the end of this year. Jon relocated to Los Angeles, so it may be a little while before all recording is finalized. He plans on recording bands out of a new studio location on the west coast so if anyone is interested in working with him they should try getting in touch. He just finished some new Cave State recordings. Tito just entered the studio to record vocals for a Bastard Noise 3"cd which will be released by Nil By Mouth before the end of the year. He continues to work on new Rauh and Black Jail material and has already released three new cassettes in 2016. His band Rubbish that he drums in will also have some new material released this year that was recorded by Jon as well. I (Rick) have been keeping busy playing with Torche and countless other projects (Caveman Cult, House of Lightning, Black Jail, Onset to name a few) as well as a short stint drumming for Cavity for a few shows. Shitstorm is not dead, but we're all busy doing a ton of other shit, so per usual we are working slow to maximize quality of final output.
In the meantime, if anyone wants any of our old shirt designs, you can buy them at www.shirtkiller.com and that money would directly help us pay for some tour expenses up front. Anything is appreciated. See you all this summer!
