Stripmines album release, Sucked Dry, Negative Degree, Abuse

When: Sun., March 18, 8 p.m. 2012

It's no stretch to call Raleigh's Stripmines one of the most brutal no-frills hardcore bands playing today. The band's bludgeoning, challenging arrangements provide fuel behind the band's vicious vocalist, Matt LaVallee. This is the release party for the band's full-length Crimes of Dispassion, an explosive LP that captures the band at its most devastating. It also marks the beginning of an end for the band; LaVallee has announced he'll leave Stripmines after a summer tour. Count this as an increasingly rare opportunity to see this band in a powerful early era. Kansas City's Sucked Dry, Denver's Negative Degree and Raleigh's Abuse. open. —Bryan C. Reed
