Oakland metalheads High on Fire are hard at work on a new collection of music that frontman Matt Pike promises will share with the masses "the dark seas of our new riffs and tragic

stories." Next month they hit the studio to record their fifth album, working with producer Greg Fidelman (Metallica, Slayer, Johnny Cash).

There's no specific news on song or album titles, but the band wants fans to know the new stuff will be "heavier, louder and more intricate." Really, is there any other way to do things with these guys?

  • 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.'"
