Our new collaborative tape with Ecoli, "Delicacies of Consuming Flesh", is available for purchase from Home Invasion records. This tape is less dark and discordant and sees our bands paying homage to jazz and the creative potential of jazz as a genre. In taking elements of jazz and funk and incorporating them into the Ecoli/Migraine sound, we're attempting to show the similarities both historically and culturally between jazz and punk.

We have returned from our tour. All of our copies of the Weird Tales EP, the Cowabunga compilation, and the Tour Tape (The Corpse is Riding Shotgun) are sold out.
The tracks on the tape are rough and incompletely mixed songs which will appear on our next EP. The tape is circulating on the internet, but almost exclusively under the erroneous title "Corpses Riding Shotgun".
July 1st we are playing at Hazmat with IRON LUNG, SLICES, and IN DISGUST.
We will have t-shirts by the end of the summer, death to counter-revolution.

Migraine is touring with Ecoli in June and this time, with a functional van, there is no chance of a failure to deliver.

However, we must first settle accounts in our own territory. Wednesday, May 19th we are playing a house show in Oakland at 324 Peralta street, 7pm.

Migraine is also once again collaborating with Ecoli on another musical venture. The corresponding recording will be released on Home Invasion records. That is all.

Some years before Migraine formed, two of us were in a grindcore band that put out a few releases. An EP and a split 7" with Skrupel on RSR, and appearances on two 625 compilations. Afterwards Sean went on to Warkrime and Ecoli, Mike formed Short Circuit and Post-Mortem Vomit, and Dan and Sean both joined forces with friends John and Chase to create Migraine. Apparently our grind origins have not been entirely obscured:

The new Migraine EP, "Weird Tales", is available for purchase directly from us, through the same e-mail as the SNUFF FILM tape was:

The label is sold out of the limited versions on black, and the regular press is running low. We still have copies of both for purchase. This is what the limited version on black looks like. A 7'' is $7.50ppd in the US. For out of country, email for total.


Here is a download of the Weird Tales 7'' if you would like to try before you buy.

FACE THE RAIL has acquired a reliable touring van and so a summer ECOLI/MIGRAINE tour is now imminent. ECOLI is doing the lion's share of the booking.

July 1st at Hazmat in Oakland, we're playing with IRON LUNG and SLICES.
