Atlanta mosh crew Foundation has announced they’ll be breaking up in 2016. Before they split, the band plans to release new music and play a handful of tour dates and festival appearances including Rain Fest, This Is Hardcore and the Wrecking Ball this summer. Formed in 2006, Foundation has released one full-length album, and a handful of singles and EPs. Take a listen to “At Your Mercy” from their When the Smoke Clears album here:

Founded in 1980, ABC No Rio is a collectively run center for art and activism based on New York City’s Lower East Side. The venue has been an integral part of the underground hardcore and punk scenes for decades now and starting May 7, a photo exhibition will be held at ABC No Rio to celebrate its legacy. Featuring shots from photographers like Justine DeMetrick and Chris Boarts Larson, the show will include live pics of such bands as Born Against, Burn and Krakdown. Head here to see a sneak peek of the photos from the show. The exhibit will be up from May 7 to June 4 as part of Lower East Side History Month. In the meantime, here’s a video clip of Punch performing at ABC No Rio in 2012:

Modern Pain has released a stream of their new single, "Peace Delusions.” The song comes off their new 7”, which will come out through Bridge Nine on May 9. The 7” serves as a teaser for forthcoming full-length by the Texas hardcore outfit. The B-side of the 7” is a cover of Sonic Youth's "Kill Yr. Idols.” Modern Pain will be heading out on a U.S. tour in support of the single right around its release date, with some dates including Dress Code. Head here for the tour dates and spin “Peace Delusions” below:

Prosthetic Records has announced they’ve added Swedish hardcore outfit Grieved to their roster. The Los Angeles–based label just re-released the band's 2012 debut album, Samaritans, across all digital platforms. The album was recorded, mixed and mastered by Lewis Johns (Funeral for a Friend, Gnarwolves) at The Ranch Production House in England. Grieved has already finished tracking their proper Prosthetic Records debut which will hit stores later this year. Here’s a track from the Samaritans album for you to chew on:
