Local Releases: It's About Time For Barefoot Metalcore | Buzz Blog
We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

Local Releases: It's About Time For Barefoot Metalcore

We've broken into March, and with that head of steam, we're plunging into what is usually one of the busiest months for local releases every year. We're going to start with a cool dozen albums that were released online, then get straight to release shows. So please, browse through the collection and then join us below.

The first of the release shows is from Foster Body, but I won't need to say much because they were already written up this week by City Weekly's Randy Harward. The album, Moving Display, is already available on Bandcamp. However, if you're looking for a vinyl copy, you'll need to snag one Saturday night as the band plays with Trace Pop, Full Trash and Brain Bagz before heading on tour. The show starts at 8 p.m. and is totally free.


Meanwhile, over at The Loading Dock on Saturday, we'll also see the latest release from DiseNgaged. This is a four-piece death metal band out of SLC made up of Dylan Dawes, Dez Troy, Chase Williams and Sean Herrera. They've had a pretty good run locally, including releasing a 2013 full-length titled Hazardous an EP titled Mass Grave, both when they were a five-piece. Hazardous is their latest endeavor, which you'll be able to snag tomorrow night as the band plays with Dead Revelator, Ossatura and Dipped In Whiskey. Tickets are $10 and the doors open at 6:30 p.m.


Love music, head out, buy local!
