FUTURE TRAUMA - March 10, 2014

As we gain momentum with our latest writing phase, creating our favorite music that we have yet made together, we felt that it was high time we share this with you... It is a previously unreleased track called FUTURE TRAUMA from an unreleased album, also called FUTURE TRAUMA, which was recorded circa 2010-2013. 
We currently have no prospects for releasing this album, so we thought we would toss this song out into the sea of digital humanity and see if anyone was interested... The album has nine tracks and is 50 minutes long... Six of the tracks are completely unique to this recording, and the other three are entirely different conceptions and productions of songs that also appear on our 2012 album Heads Full of Poison. 
So, please, turn up the volume and ENJOY!

BLIND THORNS - February 27, 2014

Our next album is with singer Antoine Lang, from Geneva, Switzerland...

The project is called BLIND THORNS...

In June 2014: CD available from New Atlantis Records (USA) and Vinyl available from Cheap Satanism (Beligum)/ Offset (Italy)

We plan to tour Europe with Blind Thorns in May/June and USA in August...

Just wanted to say that we are back from tour and are on a performance hiatus for a little bit.  

There are many things on the horizon, though.  So, stay tuned.

Thanks to everyone who came out and showed us the love and who played with us on our Sept 2013 tour!!

Music is a language - May 28, 2013

What's new?  A little of this, a little of that.

Here is a video of our show in Tallahassee on May 25th, filmed by Ian Edward Weir.

Also, we made an album with singer Antoine Lang, from Geneva, Switzerland.  The band is called BLIND THORNS.  We are looking for a label to release it.  Here is a sample: 


We also have a finished Ahleuchatistas album called FUTURE TRAUMA, that we hope to release some time within the next year.  It was in production for two and a half years, and we are ready to expose it to the light...  hopefully, we will have news about that soon....

Where are we at? - February 27, 2013

First off!!!  BIG thanks to all of our friends and family and fans and fans-but-they-didn't-know-it-yet who made it out to our concerts on our national tour in February with Buke and Gase!!!  We love you and are so happy that we were able to pass through your neck of the woods... and we are so grateful to Buke and Gase for their music and friendship.

At the moment, Ahleuchatistas is on some sort of hiatus, probably briefly.  If you wish to book us and can make a serious offer, we are available for concerts.  Our last album, Heads Full of Poison, is still making the rounds via osmosis.  If you wish to find us, at the time of this writing, Shane is in Switzerland touring with sbdQtc and Ryan is at Joshua Tree National Park camping in the desert.

However, there is more to come as we are now ready to figure out what we are going to do with our next record. Yes, it is mixed and ready to go!  So, stay tuned and keep love alive.

As we push forward and gear up to release the 7th (!) Ahleuchatistas album, presenting you with the fruits of all our hard work over the past 2+ years, here is a listen back to how it all began, a decade ago:

ON THE CULTURE INDUSTRY is the 2003 debut album from Ahleuchatistas, with the original gang of Sean, Shane, and Derek.  Why get it for free when you can support artists you love by purchasing their music directly from them?  All moneys will be split three ways between the musicians who made this music.

new album is almost done mixing...  hopefully release news will follow...  this is our moment...
