CHVRCHES (part of this year's Absolute 100) released one of my favorite albums of the year earlier this week and that got me to go "like" them on Facebook. This led me to seeing a note the band just posted asking people to stop sending them disgusting and sexist messages on their Facebook page. It disturbs me that anyone would have to ask people, who are apparently using their real names if they're on Facebook, to not act like complete morons. End rant: pick up the album (or stream it on Rdio). It's damn good.

If you're a fan of heavy music, say hello to one of your new favorite bands. Pray for Teeth's full-length debut, From the Dry Edge of the Shore, will be released on October 1 via Mayfly Records. You can hear the first track, "Confluence," in the replies. Clocking in at nearly 8 minutes, the song is heavy, brooding and sludgy. Embracing elements of both post-metal and hardcore, Pray for Teeth are like a cross between Isis and Converge.
