New Jersey's Hammer Fight are getting ready to take their bar-brawling thrash n' roll out west for their 'Wrecked Coast Disas-Tour' with Sacramento's Psychosomatic. The band will be playing out in support of their self-titled debut EP, out now on Horror Pain Gore Death Productions.

Fans should also expect to hear material from their forthcoming, as-of-yet-untitled sophomore effort, which is currently in pre-production. 'Wrecked Coast Disas-Tour' dates, along with additional shows, are listed below.

For tour updates , visit and check out the contest the band is running throughout the month of July. At the end of every week this month, Hammer Fight will be giving away a free 'something' to a fan on Facebook.

Earlier this year, the band shot a video for the song 'Get Wrecked' off their debut EP. The video features a typical Hammer Fight house party with additional footage shot at The Irish in Kearny, NJ. Check it out right here.



Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.


As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.

This unique item is presented in an aluminium flight case and will be published in late November. Earlybird subscribers who order by 31st October will have their name printed within a dedicated page in the book.
