Legions will be hitting the road in August with Adelaide’s finest, The Weight. Legions will be launching the release of their new 7” “Apparition Songs" (out through Broken Hive), and The Weight will be launching their new 10” “Suffer Eternal" (out through Lethal Dose/Death’s Grip).
Pre-orders for the Legions 7” are still available at www.store.brokenhiverecords.com, and you can stream two of the tracks at www.brokenhiverecords.bandcamp.com/album/apparition-songs
Last night Harbourer unfortunately announced that they will be finishing up as a band. Their last show will be at Rad (Yours and Owls) in Wollonong on July 28 with Basement. Statement from the band can be read below.
We released a great 7” for the band earlier this year. You can stream it at www.brokenhiverecords.bandcamp.com and purchase it at www.store.brokenhiverecords.com.
"The last few months we’ve been keeping quiet, but unfortunately we will no longer be continuing as a band. This will give each member some time to travel and also focus on our own commitments and lives. Still the best of friends, some of us have other things in mind.
Despite only being together for a few years we have been extremely lucky to play an incredible amount of shows with bands like Daylight, Touche Amore, La Dispute, Transit, Lagwagon, Make Do and Mend, Pianos Become the Teeth, The Swellers and great friends Endless Heights.
In saying this, our last show will be with Basement at Rad (Yours and Owls) in Wollongong on the 28th of July which is now sold out. Ironically, we played just our second ever show at this venue with Basement in 2012. It is sold out, but come anyway. We would love to see everybody we know get down there and go crazy.
We endlessly thank every band, promoter, venue, friend, fan and anyone else that has supported us in our short run. We can see the effect you’ve had on us and cannot express that thank you enough.
You can still buy our 7” on vinyl at the Broken Hive Records online webstore, at our last show, and every other day after that. Please continue to support BHR and buy each and everyone of their releases, past and present.
It’s been fun. See you at RAD.
Cal, Brendan, Matt and Adrian”
After a long process, Marathon and Broken Hive Records are excited to present their debut LP, “Cure" to audiences. Combining a signature guttural fury and emotional depth, Marathon's brand of chaotic hardcore metal has been enhanced on “Cure" from previous releases and sees the band more focused and visceral that ever.
Recorded between April and July 2013 at Sun Distortion in sunny Brisbane, Produced by Chris Brownbill (Shackles, Machina Genova, Nuclear Summer), mixed at Capital Games by James Balderstone and Chris Brownbill and finally mastered by Kyle Saff (Rise And Fall). 12 tracks ranging from angular speed to crawling dirge, “Cure" is an opus of creative energy.
The entire LP is now streaming over at www.brokenhiverecords.bandcamp.com, and for the first week will be available to download for the special price of $5.
To launch the release of the album, the band will be heading interstate for a run of dates in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide.

Legions have long toiled in the local Sydney scene, their blasting riffs earning them early praise but line up changes and personal commitments saw their potential falter. “Apparition Songs" is the completion of the band’s triumphant comeback. Having released "The Gravestone Path" tape and a split with Newcastle’s Downside on Death’s Grip Records, “Apparition Songs" marks the band’s first full release and their debut with Broken Hive Records.
”Apparition Songs" is four tracks of incendiary metallic hardcore blending many influences, reflecting the band’s own mixed pedigree and changing musical landscape. Still hard and heavy, Legions approach is more intricate than most, and their finest material to date can be found on this record.
You can pre-order “Apparition Songs" now at www.store.brokenhiverecords.com, with the option of an exclusive preorder shirt bundle as well as choice of vinyl colours.
Another new song from the record, “Purge”, can be streamed at www.brokenhiverecords.bandcamp.com
