I am honored to announce a first official collaboration with the epic Belgian label, Consouling Sounds. We’ll co-release the power sludge band MODDER’s self-titled debut album at the end of this year! Lay Bare was already in the process of releasing MODDER but thanks to the pandemic we got to know each other better and deemed it a good idea to join forces in order to sling MODDER the furthest we possibly can! For those who are not familiar with Consouling Sounds, definitely check out their impressive roster, they are the home of many other grand acts like Amenra, Pothamus & Alkerdeel!

Nothing better, than starting the day with ear blasting Fuzz Thrash tunes and a color feast for the eyes. 

Here we have King Gizzard on their rawest!

A Live version of their well received "Infest The Rats' Nest" album. All tracks are recorded on their tour around the world in the UK, Belgium, Australia, USA, and France.

King Gizz made 5 live albums available to release for anyone who might be interested in doing this. We took this invite as an opportunity and wanted to do something creative and special. So we chose the best parts from these 5 album sleeve-designs and assembled it to a burst of colours on the cover and inner bag. Further we compiled the "Infest The Rats' Nest" live tracks to one magnificent and dynamic album. The THRASH DEMO version “Automation" was added as a bonus on top! King Gizz’s song-themes deal with climate change impacts, destruction of the environment and human resettlement to other planets.

The PREORDER started TODAY btw..!

SOOTHSAYER ORCHESTRA is Pieter Hendriks. Pieter was born and raised in the early 80’s in a small town in the south of The Netherlands, At a very young age he got introduced to music and playing instruments by his parents. Here he got hooked on a wide variety of music genres. In the early 90’s the big city called and introduced Pieter to different music and new horizons. Freeing him from the tunnel visions of living in a small town. Soon after at the age of 15, Pieter started touring in various Punk and Hardcore bands across the globe. Long drives in shitty vans to play in squats in forgotten towns in faraway countries was a reality check and shaped character. Years of  touring the world he moved to Eindhoven. This culminated in 2015 in setting up a home studio. Where he started recording songs by himself, without plan or clear vision. Out of these recordings Soothsayer Orchestra was born.

Pieter is a musical solitudinarian who has enough gumption to leave the commonplace behind and only take with him what can enrich his music and performance. There is a certain weight of tragedy in his music. His gravelly voice possesses sometimes an uneasy moodiness that reflects doom and despair. It immerses you in the dark side of life.
Then, amidst this darkness Soothsayer compositions shift to newfound hope. Warm and flowing, creating a longing, yet bold mood. Especially in a live performance, with the backing of a band who got their routine down, Pieter Hendriks songs come to peak dramatically.

For the upcoming self-titled debut album, most lyrics and song ideas were written in an old caravan in the middle of the dark forest of the Eifel in Germany. Pieter isolated himself there without a phone and television. Just loneliness and silence to focus on his songs. All these roads resulted in a self-titled Soothsayer Orchestra debut album which will be released by Lay Bare Recordings in January 2021. Pieter Hendriks has made a pact with his inner self and tells us that
more Sooth Sayer songs are forthcoming.

Soothsayer Orchestra is best to file under: Dark Americana, Folk Noir, Apocalyptic Blues

For Fans Of: Nick Cave, Mark Lanegan and Wovenhand.

Aqualamb Krampus Holiday Stream with a.o. FRAYLE presented by St. Vitus Bar & Revolver

Hosted by Chris Enriquez, the KRAMPUS HOLIDAY STREAM features live performances by Cleveland’s lush doom rockers FRAYLE, plus the crushing nihilism of Brooklyn’s Burning Tongue, soulful macabre from Nathaniel Shannon & The Vanishing Twin, and singer-songwriter Zeb Gould’s haunting gloom folk and music videos by Lo-PanSpylacopaSkryptorMurderedmanSpace Merchants and many more!
Since we can’t convene for a show the day after Christmas as is customary in our fair city of New York, we’re going to bring you a slew of epic performances right to the comfort of your own home, or gutter, or wherever you’re at these days; as long as it has wi-fi. **We really hope you are not in a gutter, at least not physically. If you’re in a mental gutter, this will certainly offer some reprieve.

Tickets can be purchased online at Saint Vitus Bar and are $10. For a little more cash, you can grab some limited edition goodies, such as a Krampus Holiday Stream poster and Krampus t-shirt designed by Branca Studios, and art, vinyl and tees from our live artists.
We’re honored to showcase and bring together all these excellent bands and their fans, to create a much needed sense of rock ‘n’ roll community, one which we hope to return to in person as soon as possible. In the meantime, let your 2020-weathered heart rejoice in the folkloric creepiness of Krampus and the knowledge that these bands are still out there creating incredible music. We’re starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Happy Krampus and here’s to a year of unstoppable, inspiring music ahead.
