Check out the new flexi by Time and Pressure!

St. Louis, Missouri’s Time and Pressure released one of hardcore’s strongest LPs back in 2019 with The Gateway City Sound. The record mixed tightly woven and speedy guitars with screamed yet clear vocal cadences that created a sound that was at once aggressive, engaging, and well-written. And now they’re back with a new full-length LP due out this summer on Safe Inside Records. The new album, Halfway Down, is set for release this July but the band is also set to release a two-song flexi today via Wide Eyed Noise Records. Punknews' Mike Musilli sat down with Blake and James to talk the new record, the pandemic, and Midwest hardcore. You can pick up the new flexi here. Meanwhile, you can stream the two new songs and check out the interview below, right now.

In Memoriam
Jack Terricloth of World/Inferno has passed away

Jack Terricloth of World/Inferno has passed away

We are afraid that we have tragic news to report. Jack Terricloth has passed away. He was 50. The cause of death was not revealed.

The band released a statement, which you can read below.

Terricloth was born Peter Ventantonio. As a teenager, he was a member of the punk band Neurotic Impulse. After that band broke, he formed Sticks and Stones. His friend and long time collaborator Scott Hollingsworth would also play in that band. After Sticks and stones ended, Terricloth and Hollingsworth formed World/Inferno Friendship Society, one of the most unique and greatest punk bands of all time. The band would release a string of albums, including the iconic Red Eyed Soul and Addicted to Bad Ideas, which was an entire stage show based on the life of Peter Lorre. The last WIFS album was All Borders Are Porous to Cats .

Jack and the rest of World/Inferno played several Punknews events and each of those shows were among the best concerts we have ever seen. Terricloth was a living noir character that you could never quite fully understand. His talent was beyond the starts. We will miss him greatly. There will never be another. Rest in Peace and may you sing along with the Great Pumpkin.
