Wisdom In Chains cancels European tour

Talk about a bummer for European fans of hardcore act Wisdom In Chains.  The band is having to cancel their European tour in August due to vocalist Joe’s job.  Here’s the full statement from the band:

“We have bad news. Sorry to all our friends in Europe, all the promoters who booked us, our booking agent, and everyone else involved. We have to cancel our European tour in August. After being laid off from work for two years, our singer Joe was finally called back in. When he went back to work, he mentioned the tour to his boss (normally with this kind of work, its no problem), at the time the boss said it would be no problem. Just yesterday his boss said to him that if he wants to stay working, he shouldn’t do the tour. So due to a lot of financial problems he just cannot afford to lose that job (even though working for a dick sucks). We are very sorry, and we where really looking forward to being there this summer. Hopefully somehow we will arrange something over there soon.”

The tour was in support of the band’s latest album, “The Missing Links”, released in March by I Scream Records.  No word on whether the dates will be rescheduled.



Lenny Lashley makes acting debut in female-fronted action film (music by Joey Briggs, Darkbuster, more)

Lenny Lashley (Darkbuster) has made what appears to be his acting debut in the award winning new independent action film “Serena and the Ratts.” Here’s a brief film synopsis (Kill Bill fans will enjoy:)

“Influenced by femme fatales from Luc Besson and reminiscent of interpretive films from David Lynch, Kevin James Barry’s unconventional arthouse-meets-action film exposes the gritty consequences of life’s choices, and challenges audiences to draw their own conclusions on what is real, what is dream and what is a life never lived.”

Additionally, the soundtrack looks to be almost entirely made up of punk bands including Joey Briggs, River City Rebels, Bloodshot Hooligans, and music from Lenny and his band Darkbuster.

The film received special recognition for its director Kevin James Barr and took home “Best Action Feature” at the Bare Bones International Film and Music Festival. Look no further for a trailer.

Album Review: Wisdom In Chains – “The Missing Links”

Don’t you dare try to look away!

PA’s favorite sons Wisdom In Chains are back with their new album “The Missing Links” (I Scream). In case you live under a rock, this is probably the best band in hardcore at the moment. If you’ve had a shitty day or hate your job, come home and throw this on. You’ll quickly remember to stay inspired and who or what you are working for. Widsom In Chains take that beaten down feeling and turn the scars into a badge, the job of all the greatest hardcore. Richie Krutch, Mad Joe Black and the boys really deliver the near impossible, which is to make a record that can follow up the incredibly good “Everything You Know” album.

The breakdowns are hot off the grill in an old school way. The guitar tones are big but still punk. Bottom line, you hear this shit and you just know what needs to happen on the floor. Anyone who saw Wisdom In Chains kill it on their recent dates with Blood For Blood knows what I am talking about. This band just makes me warm and fuzzy with thoughts that the best traits of hardcore’s vital pedigree lives on in this band. This is what the genre is about.

Highlights of “The Missing Links” are many. The record talks about personal and social issues, honor and not being an empty shell. The full guns blazing WIC we know and love is present on songs like “Peace To My Family” and the inspiring road song “Traveling”, while the title track adds artistic dynamic range via atmospheric guitar elements that almost reminded me of Metallica’s “One”. It is a captivating track about not submitting to lower human instinct.”Can’t Bring Me Down” is an angry dirge that will get you riled up as hell at people who have a superiority complex and drag you down.”Snakes” is one of the best songs the band has ever written, with vocalist Mad Joe Black screaming the truly awesome and hard to not love opening lines of,”You dumb motherfucker! You sold it all for a bowl of beans! Now you gotta live with it.”

Plus, as evidenced on “Ghost Of Buddy” Wisdom In Chains continue to prove that they write the best hardcore songs about dogs.

Go buy this as soon as you can.
