Press Release 5/12/14:

Coliseum join the Deathwish Family, “Coliseum” Deluxe Reissue 2XLP/CD out August 19th.

Founded by Louisville musician Ryan Patterson and including Kayhan Vaziri and Carter Wilson, power trio Coliseum have grown to become one of today’s quintessential contemporary punk bands. Successfully melding progressive musicianship, hardcore fervor, and vital social awareness into one constantly evolving artistic vision.

Over the last decade Coliseum have released music on a host of labels including; Temporary Residence, Relapse, Level Plane, Auxiliary (Ryan’s own label), and even Deathwish (“True Quiet / Last Wave” 2009).

And now, 2014 brings Coliseum and Deathwish together again as their permanent label home. “We have a long and storied history with Deathwish and their family of bands,” says Patterson. “Not only did we work with the label on the ‘True Quiet’ 7”, we’ve toured around the world with Deathwish bands, released a split with Doomriders early on, and I’ve been fortunate enough to design a number of Deathwish releases. While Coliseum officially joining the label’s roster is a new chapter for us, it feels like a homecoming.”

To celebrate Coliseum’s 10th anniversary, we are proud to present the “Coliseum” Deluxe Reissue: A twenty song collection featuring their classic self titled debut album (out of print since 2006) paired with eight essential bonus tracks from their primordial years. Originally recorded by Jason Loewenstein of Sebadoh and now fully remixed by Joel Grind of Toxic Holocaust, the release also features new deluxe packaging, insightful liner notes, and cover artwork by John Baizley of Baroness.

Pre-ordering information will be announced soon.

Dark Entries, hosted by Ryan Patterson and Jamie Beard, is on tonight from 9-11pm EST! Tune in worldwide at www.artxfm.com or via the free ARTxFM iPhone app. We’ll be playing songs from these records and many more!

About:

DESIGN / COLISEUM / BLACK GOD / WHIPS/CHAINS / MORE

RYAN PATTERSON is a graphic designer and visual artist from Louisville, Kentucky, known for his dense, instantly recognizable collage-based artwork. Patterson utilizes digital and physical tools to create hypnotic imagery with a proclivity for symmetry and a fixation on the dark and mysterious aspects of popular culture. Inspired equally by the cut-n-paste, photocopied aesthetic of early punk/hardcore and the cluttered kitsch of '60s and '70s exploitation film posters, Patterson blends elements of both in his work.

Patterson is perhaps most recognized for his role as the founding member of the band Coliseum, where, in addition to his position as singer, guitarist and songwriter, he is responsible for the band’s acclaimed album and t-shirt art. He has designed countless records and shirts for bands across the globe, including Avail, Tim Barry, Converge, Doomriders, The Exploding Hearts, From Ashes Rise, Kylesa, Mono, Red Sparowes, Russian Circles, Torche, Trap Them, Victims, and Young Widows, among many others. Patterson is also a member of the bands Black God and Whips/Chains.
