Doomed Society Presents: Iskra, Wake, Licorice!

Coming up on August 8th, we’ve got a mad blast of brutal noise on a Monday night!


On their way back home from a massive cross-country tour, the mighty Iskra are making their second appearance Calgary appearance of the summer. They’ve got a completely different setlist for this show, so be sure to come out! If you missed their all ages show earlier this month, you really need to come to this show!

Joining them for this s

how are Calgary grindcore heroes Wake, who certainly need no introduction. After all, they’ve made a major mark on the extreme music community all over the world. Not bad for a bunch of prairie heshers, no? Be sure to pick up a copy of their new record at this show.

One of the best new bands in this one-horse town will be kicking off the night. Of course I’m ta

lking about the mad heads known as Licorice. Fast hardcore with elements of sludge? Hey, why not. Hard to pigeonhole, but hard not to love.

You should take Tuesda

y off of work. Just a heads up.

Midnight Records will be on hand selling records, and be sure to bring extra cash for merch! Iskra’s got some really nice embroidered patches and brand new shirt designs this time around!

Come on down to Vern’s: 622 8th Ave SW

Doors at 9pm, Ten Bucks at the door.


Pre-Orders for New WAR//PLAGUE LP are now available!


Eh up, Canadian punx! This is exclusively for the hosers in the crowd! Organize And Arise will be handling limited pre-orders for American orders very shortly.

Eight releases in, War//Plague are back with their second full-length, “Carrion”. Nine crushing songs of protest, rage, and resistance in the classic Minneapolis style. Classic crust in a modern vein, with an emphasis on substance before trendiness. Recorded at Signature Tone by Adam Tucker, and pressed in Calgary at Canada Boy Vinyl.

As a special bonus, Doomed Society is offering a sweet pre-order special for all the Canadians out there. Pre-order the new W//P record, and I will send you a free copy of the first Doomed Society release, the out of print AHNA/Cetascean split LP, plus a free Doomed Society patch. Fuck yeah. (Or if you’d rather, you can choose to get the Doomed Society t-shirt and patch as a bonus instead of the split LP! OR – for an even $20, you can get all of the above!)

Note: As this is a pre-order, everything will be shipped as soon as we get the War//Plague records in stock. That way you won’t have to pay shipping twice. If you’d rather get the split LP and patch ahead of time, please contact me so we can figure that out.

Go place your pre-orders at the Doomed Society Webstore

This tour is presented by Profane Existence, Black Raven Records, and Doomed Society.
I will be tagging along to help with the Profane Existence distro, and also joining us will be Gretchen from The Country Grind zine.
This will be an onslaught of epic proportions.
