Heavy Planet Podcast #07: The Midwest USA

Show o' hands, kids... How many of you think the Midwest United States is little more than cornfields and cold winters? Alright, keeping those hands up... How many have heard The Midnight Ghost Train, Fister, Poney, or Threefold Law? Well, there's more to the Midwest than grain, slick driveways, and long-cut Copenhagen. These 21 bands exemplify an edge that's impossible to dismiss once you've let down your guard. Check in with Grip of Delusion Radio this Sunday, April 22nd, from 4:00pm to 6:00pm EST for a reason to ignore those truck stops and stay for the night. Honest Abe Lincoln loved Illinois for a reason, and that reason was The Atlas Moth (would we bullshit you?).
