Good news for Bay Area metalheads: High on Fire just signed to Koch Records. The Oakland trio is now in the process of writing their next album due in 2009 that will be released by the aforementioned juggernaut of an indie label. High on Fire joins an ecclectic label roster that puts them alongside fellow Oakland artist Keak Da Sneak, fellow metal dudes Hatebreed, and fellow songbird of a generation Carole King. There's no set date for the new album, but we'll keep you posted. --Oscar Pascual

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
