Laughter Abounds In Belmont University's Zany and Uproarious THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG

That laughter you hear coming from within the Troutt Theatre on the Belmont University campus this weekend and next should probably come with a trigger warning.

Wear Your Wounds Feat. J. Bannon Announce 'RUST ON THE GATES OF HEAVEN

Wear Your Wounds was created by Converge founder Jacob Bannon. Initially conceived as a solo project, it evolved into a five-piece band that often works with collaborating musicians. In 2017 Wear Your Wounds released WYW (the debut double album) and Arthritic Heart (a New Noise Magazine single). A live band was then assembled for a number of shows including Roadburn Festival 2017 and Desert Festival UK. Later on that year their Dunedevil (an experimental album) was released; a companion piece to Bannon's abstract art book of the same name. In 2018 Wear Your Wounds released their Live at the BBC 12' LP at Maida Vale Studio (MV4).
