CORRECTIONS HOUSE — the bastard sound manipulations of Mike IX Williams (Eyehategod), Scott Kelly (Neurosis), Bruce Lamont (Yakuza), Sanford Parker (Minsk) and their minister of propaganda, Seward Fairbury — are currently in Tilburg readying to trounce the main stage of Roadburn. From there, they’ll traumatize Het Patronaat (also in Tilburg) before heading to the UK for their London debut with Consumer Electronics and Necro Deathmort.
The collective will be touting Writing History In Advance. Recorded live in Los Angeles in January of this year, the release features tracks from their Last City Zero debut and Hoax The System 7” and will be available on LP in limited quantities at Roadburn. Writing History In Advance will be available on CD, LP and digitally via War Crime Recordings in North America. Stay tuned for further info.
In related live news, CORRECTIONS HOUSE will take over Three Floyds Brewing’s Dark Lord Day Festival in Munster, Indiana later this month with High on Fire, Eyehategod, Brain Tentacles, Iron Reagan, and more as well as Roskilde Fest in Denmark in July.
But the mass CORRECTIONS HOUSE pandemonium doesn’t end there. Overcome by their scathing odes of emotional discontent and societal decline, legendary burger peddlers, Kuma’s Corner in conjunction with Dryhop Brewing who launched the Last City Zero beer, have forged a special CORRECTIONS HOUSE patty for all your meat-loving needs. The patty comes adorned with braised pork ribs, apple butter bbq, cheddar polenta, caramelized red onion and fresh arugula. Check out a photo below.

CORRECTIONS HOUSE is a meeting of minds and ideologies that sees all four members incorporating their obvious individual talents and voices but simultaneously carving paths away from the sounds for which they are usually known. On Last City Zero, released last year via Neurot Recordings, they traverse tectonic plate-shifting doom and the downcast gloom of Kelly’s usual ouevre into mutated industrial hissing and clanging EBM beats from Parker, squalls and drones of oblique saxophone from Lamont and Williams’ familiar phlegm-drenched fire-spitting ire and all points in-between. Exclaim! in a 9/10 review, “Featuring dark, depressing atmospheres and exceptionally negative, apocalyptic vibes, Last City Zero is brooding, raw and corrosive, as well as breathtakingly beautiful,” while Crave agreed, “CORRECTIONS HOUSE have created something wholly original, incredibly touching, and most likely alienating. Bravo gentlemen, bravo.” Added Metal Hammer, “Whether it’s Mike IX Williams’ grim spoken word poetry or Scott’s coarse, monotone groan overlaying the clangorous soundscapes, it’s the utter bleakness that binds.”
CORRECTIONS HOUSE is diligently penning the follow-up to Last City Zero with additional touring to be announced in the coming months. Until then, suffer.
