Ohio sludgecore veterans FISTULA will headline the second night of the Doomed & Stoned Festival set to take place in Indianapolis, Indiana this weekend. The band will play alongside coheadliners Cardinals Folly, Cruthu, Wolftooth, and many more. The appearance will be the debut performance with new drummer, Kenny Easterly, and comes in advance of the band’s European live takeover with their Italian sludge comrades in Grime set to commence later this month. See all confirmed dates below.
In related FISTULA developments, the long-awaited vinyl edition of their critically-lauded Longing For Infection full-length will finally see release later this year via PATAC Records. Tracked and engineered by Dave Johnson (Midnight, Incantation, Soulless), the demoralizing offering includes a cover of Sloth’s “El Camino” not included on the CD edition as well as a bonus, single-sided, etched seven-inch with a cover of Post Mortem’s “Caveman.” Preorders will be launching on October 31st, 12pm EST at patacrecords.com.

FISTULA was forged in 1998 by musical partners-in-crime Corey Bing and Bahb Branca. Over the years, FISTULA has released a seemingly endless barrage of studio albums and split EPs that mirror the hideous, toxic society they aim to destroy.
