Poison The Well tour dates w/ The End
So Poison The Well is now back to an indie label (Ferret) and they're new stuff is supposed to be off the hook. I'm assuming they went back to an indie because the majors wouldn't give them enough "creative control".
Ok, cool, whatever, good for both of them. Ferret will make a killing. BUT here's what I do know. Thanks to my good friend/fellow DFW resident Kasi who burned me the unreleased tracks, PTW is awesome again and even better then before if I might say. The unreleased tracks are phenomenal. Take Deftones and give it a hardcore version of Neurosis build-ups. Great stuff. I hope their upcoming release doesn't hold back or compromise the quality of their music to "appeal to a bigger audience".
The End is also a great tech-metal band. They kind of came our pretty soon after Dillinger Escape Plan's "Calculating Infinity" album and were branded as a grind version of DEP from what I heard, and I'd agree to an extent.
Either way, they'd be worth seeing. They just released "Elementary" (Relapse) which also sounds good from the few tracks I've heard.
