Fuck the Facts, Dead Church, and more at the Funeral Home

Fuck the Facts, Dead Church, Sulaco, Backbiter, and Leash


Thursday, January 24

It’s about time someone injected some estrogen into the grindcore scene. Formed in 2001 and led by screamer Melanie Mongeon, Canadian grindcore band Fuck the Facts make a stop at the Funeral Home this Thursday (Jan 24). Buffalo is the first stop for the female fronted, Relapse Records hardcore band in support of their latest record, the Misery EP, companion to their 2011 record Die Miserable. Joining them will be Detroit grindcore band Dead Church, who blew the doors off the Funeral Home last September. The four-piece run a label called Mannequin Rein out of their hometown, as well as an undergound venue called The Half Way House. Rochester’s Sulaco will also play in support. Formerly signed to Relapse Records, the band, led by guitarist/singer Erik Burke of Brutal Truth, Lethargy, and Kailbas recently signed to Pittsburgh’s Willowtip Records. New comers Backbiter and  Leash round out what should be a fast and brutal show at the Funeral Home. —cory perla
