We are touring with Harvey Milk and The Atlas Moth!

57487677.jpgWe didn’t get to do many American shows last year, due to us spending our vacation time in Europe (I know poor us right?).  This year however, we are blowing all of our vaction time on you, the American Hardcore fans.  This year, we seriously lucked out.  We are embarking on 2 tours this year that will have us east to west, and even Canada.  The first tour we are doing is with the amazing Harvey Milk and Atlas Moth.  Dates are as follow…
Mar 5 2010   Rex Theatre w/ Harvey Milk & The Atlas Moth    Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Mar 6 2010   Kung Fu Necktie w/ Harvey Milk & The Atlas Moth    Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Mar 7 2010   The Ottobar w/ Harvey Milk & The Atlas Moth    Baltimore, Maryland
Mar 8 2010   Le Poisson Rouge w/ Harvey Milk & The Atlas Moth    New York City, New York
Mar 9 2010   Middle East Downstairs w/ Harvey Milk & The Atlas Moth    Cambridge, Massachusetts
Mar 10 2010  Il Motore w/ Harvey Milk & The Atlas Moth    Montréal, Quebec
Mar 11 2010   Wreck Room w/ Harvey Milk & The Atlas Moth    Toronto, Ontario
Mar 12 2010   Small’s w/ Harvey Milk & The Atlas Moth    Hamtramck, Michigan
Mar 13 2010   Subterranean w/ Harvey Milk & The Atlas Moth    Chicago, Illinois

There are already some rumors about our other tour later this spring, but it’s nothing but rumors at this point.  I can tell you that we planned our tours to where we could get across the entire united states and not loose our day jobs.  So in short, if you are waiting for a Coalesce show in the nyc area, come see us with Harvey Milk and the Atlas moth, because we won’t be back later on another tour.

OXEP Preorder up now! Preview song up now!


Hey guys, just a quick note that OXEP comes out Nov 10, and we have a rad preorder package put together for you.  We are doing a classic brand name zippo, a Dakota pocket knife, and a really nice OX zip hoodie by Micah Smith.  CLICK HERE FOR THE PREORDER.

The Zippo is a name brand quality lighter, and we’ve done it in a classic silver worn look.  The OX icon is engraved in the face in a classic set up.  As an added bonus, we are making some chase lighters in black matte and gold.  Only 1 of each is being made, and random customers will get them unless specified that they do NOT want a one of a kind lighter.  All lighters are being made to order.  If we only sell 1, then only 1 of these will exist.

The Dakota pocket knife was chosen as a useful work tool.  Sean from Coalesce searched for hours looking for the best quality knife, with the best features.  Having the blade black is a huge bonus.  The Ox icon is engraved on both sides of the blade.  This too is being made to order.  No chase colors on the knife.

We haven’t had a new hoodie in a long time.  We are super excited to see Micah Smiths Ox poster design used in such an appealing way.  We decided to go with american apparel on this item, and it again is being made to order.

Please note that we split the preorder items from the actual ep.  Everything is sold separately.  So if you download a leak from wherever, you can still support the band and get something unique and useful.

We have approved the test presses for the 12″ vinyl, and they should be on time as well.  We will have our copies of the vinyl up for preorder in all colors as soon as we can go through the boxes and know exactly what we have.

You can go over to our myspace page and check out a track from OXEP right now.  CLICK HERE TO PREVIEW A NEW OXEP TRACK.  We chose “Through Sparrows I rest” as the first track for you to check out.  A little note on the song, that’s not a missle at the end, that’s Sean’s 12 year old daughter backing her dad on vocals. We believe the entire OXEP will be available for streaming on soon enough.

Thanks so much for your continued support of this band and our art.

Updated! Remix Wild Ox Moan, plus uploading instructions.

Relapse, Coalesce, and have teamed up to put together a contest we are really excited about.  Ed Rose has broken down the song “Wild Ox Moan” into several stem tracks ready for you to completely reinvent, and remix.  Here are the details on how to do this…

” Go HERE to the Coalesce remix page. If you’re not yet a member, click Signup in the top right corner of the page.  Provide your name, email and a password and you’ll soon be a member!  Once you’re a member, you can Ask to Join.  After you are accepted into the session, you can make comments, record, edit or upload a mix and more.  To start a mix using Indaba’s online recording software, click Record, Edit, Mix.  This will launch the Session Console. To access to the files for download, click on View All in the files section on the right.  In the actions bar next to each track, you can select  download.  And then you can go ahead and mix the tracks using your own music software. 

When you are all done, you should then upload your final track on the site itself by clicking on “upload files (see screenshot, click to enlarge)”


We’ve noticed that a lot of folks are uploading their mixes on their myspaces, and other new sharing media blogs.  That’s all good, but we would like to have all of the mixes in one place so we don’t have to hunt all over the net.  That is if you want to be in the drawing for the prizes.

This one is for the coalesce history books

This is probably the single weirdest thing that has happened in our little history as a band.  Music reviewer Mark Prindle did an interview segment on Fox News’ “Red Eye”.  When asked if there was any band on the radar for “album of the year”, Mr. Prindle said our own Ox was the contender.  But then it got extra crazy and amazing.  I’m not going to ruin it for you, but skip to the 3:50 mark…

Coalesce honored with BBC session invite in London.

 This one suprised us.  We were invited to record 4 songs at the BBC Maida Vale studios.  It was an amazing experience, and we got somd great takes.  Here is what was recorded

1. Through Sparrows I rest (unreleased oxep)
2. Wild Ox Moan (ox)
3. The Villain We Won’t Deny (ox)
4. The Purveyor of Novely and Nonsense (ox)

The first three have already aired and you can catch the show streaming right now by going HERE.  The last song will be airing the next show they do, and it’ll be posted at the same link.

Whoever made this happen for us, we can’t thank you enough, you gave us something seriously special to remember our time in this band by.

Some quick updates as OX draws near.

Hey folks, just a few notes as we get ready for the OX release.

First off, we’ve been posting links and updates pretty much instantly at our twitter page.  Check that out if you want to see a more sporadic and personal account of things happening.  You can see that here. 

If you are one of the ones who didn’t download the leak, you can hear “The Purveyor of Novelty and Nonsense.” here.  It’s exclusive to this site apparently. Since the release is so close, I’m pretty sure the whole thing will be streamed soon enough, but honestly, the streams don’t do the production job any justice.

We got an amazing write up by Ian Robinson, the metal vj guy from MTV back when the Rock was reigning WWF champ.  And WWF was still called WWF.  Regardless, you can read that review here. In general we won’t post all reviews on this site, we’ll leave that to our twitter page, but this one was especially flattering.

Also, we wanted to let you know that the next installment of OX, titled OXEP is done and off to mastering.  It is 16 more minutes of OX and will see a 2009 release.  You can view the lyrics right now on the lyrics tab above.

And just because it’s been cracking me up for days, some nature head banging.  If you are one of the dudes in here, get in touch, Ingram wants to go camping with you guys really bad.

We went ahead and gambled on of the more unique songs first, and got to put up a rocker we like a lot too.  Check it.
