Perpetual Motion Machine announces new releases

The Perpetual Motion Machine has announced details regarding three upcoming releases. On the heels of last year's well-received Turk Street 10"/CDEP, San Francisco's Kowloon Walled City will begin recording a full-length this week, for release on The Perpetual Motion Machine this summer. Turk Street's downtuned, post-hardcore sludge garnered positive reviews in magazines like Thrasher and Terrorizer, along with plenty of blogosphere hype. For this follow-up, as of yet unnamed, the group will once again set up shop in their rehearsal space in San Francisco for a few weeks of recording. Ever the archivists, they'll be blogging the process at their website inthewalledcity.com. Expect a street date late this summer. In the meantime, do yourself a favor and check out KWC's five song Turk Street EP, available for free high quality download and purchase here. www.myspace.com/kowloonwalledcity Also in the works for a summer release is the debut full length from the relatively new Brooklyn-based psych/stoner rock band, Ancient Sky, who feature members of Majority Rule, Darkest Hour, Ghastly City Sleep, and Verse En Coma. The band just completed recording their debut seven song full-length at the Seaside Lounge in Brooklyn and have handed it off to Paul Gold (Fucked Up, Animal Collective) for mastering. Their self-titled full length is set to be released on LP/CD in July 2009 on The Perpetual Motion Machine in the US and on Sons of Vesta Records in Europe. Additional details to follow. www.myspace.com/ancientskyband Finally, our friends in Richmond, Virginia's noise rock/hardcore amalgam, The Catalyst, have finally finished writing their first full length, "Swallow Your Teeth," the long-awaited follow-up to their 2007 ep, "Marianas Trench." The band will be heading to the studio in May with Steve Roche (Off Minor) and plan to release the album on LP+CD (packaged together) later this summer on The Perpetual Motion Machine in the US and Sons of Vesta Records in Europe. Late summer/fall tours are in the works for the US and Europe. http://www.myspace.com/thecatalyst
