Tuesday, April 3, 2018
Greetings! Welcome to the first Beach Impediment Records new release post of 2018. I got a couple hot platters on deck for ya along with a good glimpse of the rest of the year in B.I.R. happenings so let's just get right to it:
FETISH - S/T EP
"While one should hesitate to use the term "super group," it would be kinda hard to not consider utilizing some kind of label in that vein in regards to Portland, Oregon's FETISH. For starters if we're gonna talk about genre altering personnel within the ranks of this group, you'd have to note that this recording showcases the first time that Thee Slayer Hippy and Vegetable have come together to create ugly hardcore punk music since their stint together in the "War All The Time" era of the legendary Kings of Punk POISON IDEA three decades ago. It also doesn't hurt that 3/4 of PDX punk heroes LONG KNIFE (Colin Jarrell, Scott Goto, and Chris Reid respectively) are in the mix as well along with later era PI guitarist Brandon Bentley. Their debut track "TAKE THE KNIFE" showcases the sheer power of this group and is just a sign of what is to come with the band's full length record that will hopefully see the light of day later this year. On the flip side, a stirring rendition of LOVE's classic track "A House Is Not A Motel" closes this one out leaving us hungry for more. Each record comes in a glue pocket sleeve featuring cover art by the talented Joe B."
There are 200 copies on OPAQUE RED VINYL for mailorder while they last.
UPDATE: Color vinyl is SOLD OUT from Beach Impediment but the band will have plenty of copies at their soon to be announced record release show in Portland.
WITCHTRIAL - DEMO 2017 12"
Rather than let it remain exclusive to a small run on the cassette tape format, Beach Impediment is proud to give the 2017 Demo by the Mid-Atlantic metalpunk power house WITCHTRIAL a proper go on vinyl. While the members of this band are known to many for creating a slew of well done hardcore punk outfits in recent years, their venture into this particular realm of the heavier and far more grisly has proven to be a worthy one as evidenced through these four tracks. Featuring a new mastering job by Will Killingsworth (the ferocity of which is truly magnified on a 45 RPM 12") along with striking cover art by Alex Heir and logo by Guilherme Bacellar. Limited to a one time pressing of 500 copies on black vinyl.
As always, these releases can be purchased from the Beach Impediment Records Big Cartel and streamed / downloaded over at the Beach Impediment Records Bandcamp page.
The following distros / stores should have copies of these records soon, if not already: SORRY STATE RECORDS, GRAVE MISTAKE RECORDS, FEEL IT RECORDS, PUNKDISTRO (Germany), BLITZ RECORDS (UK), PHOBIA RECORDS (CZ), PUNK AND DESTROY (Japan), RECORD BOY (Japan), HELL'S HEADBANGERS, JOINT CUSTODY, REPO MAN RECORDS (Denmark), DISK UNION (Japan), VINYL CONFLICT, MATERIAL WORLD, DESOLATE RECORDS, EXTREME NOISE, NECKCHOP RECORDS, DISTORT REALITY RECORDS, and a few more that are in the works.
And as always, both releases are available for wholesale from EBULLITION and REVHQ.
In other news, this past January we had the inaugural release on our cassette tape imprint label ANONYMOUS CAVE with the BATTERING RAM - LET ME FIGHT WHERE I LAY... CS. Most of the copies have sold but I have a few more up in the webstore for those interested. Here's the information on that one:
"For the inaugural release on the Beach Impediment cassette only imprint label ANONYMOUS CAVE, we're proud to bring you the BATTERING RAM - LET ME FIGHT WHERE I LAY... CS. This group is a real tour de force or some shit, featuring the Brothers Radigan aka Biff and Big Ev coming together to share three heavy metal / hard street rock originals that (along with the mystical powers of narcotics) might very well make the listener think they're in a seedy London alley circa 1982, sprawled out on top of a pile of rubbish, suckling sour milk directly from the teat of one of them fabled Filth Hounds of Hades; along with a ZZ Top cover to close it all out and send ya the fuck off. Each tape comes enclosed within a black and white card stock J-card adorned with art by Andy Fletcher. Limited to 200 copies."
You can also stream / download the cassette over at the Anonymous Cave Bandcamp page. And on the off chance that any of you will be seeing BATTLE RUINS in Germany this coming weekend, I'd imagine Brendan will have copies of the tape for sale at that gig as well.
It's also worth noting that both the EEL - NIGHT PARADE OF 100 DEMONS LP and LONG KNIFE - SEWERS OF BABYLON EP have been repressed and are once again available!
Got a shit ton of distro updates as well with heaps of new titles available:
CRUDE - DRUG CULTURE LP

+ some more shite that's in the works for you freakies.
That does it for now. Be good to one another, ya hear?
Tuesday, October 3, 2017
Well, well, well... I'm excited to be closing the year out with this one - the magnum opus by some of Pittsburgh's finest miscreants, beer drinkers, and hell raisers AKA James Rose and his EEL boys. More on that below along with some tour dates coming up soon in the northeast, a fair amount of which are with the legendary VARUKERS. So yeah:
"Polish Hell, Pittsburgh's EEL have once again crawled out of a dimly lit basement a few blocks from Gooski's to offer up their most forceful effort yet. "NIGHT PARADE OF 100 DEMONS" is the culmination of a band spending half of a decade perfecting their particular interpretation of the microcosm that is punk. The end result is eleven tracks of violent and destructive commotion that seems to mirror the world that has always surrounded us but is becoming far more apparent as of late. Once again, these freaks of nature achieve their prime objective - bombarding the listener with a relentless barrage of their rust belt style noise drenched hardcore punk... an all out aural assault. Each record features stunning black and white cover art by the legendary Japanese hardcore artist Kazuhiro Imai accompanied by a stellar piece on the reverse by Luke Kislak."
There are 100 copies on HIGHLIGHTER YELLOW vinyl for mailorder while they last.
UPDATE: All color vinyl is SOLD OUT.
You can buy a copy of the record over at the Beach Impediment Records Big Cartel.
The record is also streaming in its entirety and available for download over at the Beach Impediment Records Bandcamp.

Be sure to catch them on the aforementioned jaunt up in the nord'east that is popping off in about a month, they didn't really provide me with much information as far as venues and all that other important stuff but I trust that there are some gumshoes among you that can suss out the nitty gritty:

It's that time of year, folks... The Beach Impediment Label hath spewed out some more hardcore punk for the fuckers that fuck with such things. It's a rag tag group, that bunch. This time around we have exclusive punk music from the likes of FRIED EGG - the pride of the Commonwealth of Virginia and Portland, Oregon bruisers LONG KNIFE. Rejoice! Curse! Laugh! Cry! The choice is yours, grease or annihilation:
FRIED EGG - BACK AND FORTH EP
FRIED EGG are back with a new EP for Beach Impediment Records following their debut 7" on Negative Jazz and a self-released flexi. For the uninitiated, FRIED EGG have been one of Central Virginia's most exciting and original hardcore punk acts to watch over the past couple of years. Their style has a very contemporary feel, yet manages to stand out based on consistently inventive songwriting that is matched with the finesse and power that belongs in the hardcore punk genre. "BACK AND FORTH" boasts four new cuts (tracked live including vocals for anyone keeping score) that truly stand out from the pack. From the precise and original guitar lines to the absolute wrecking crew of a rhythm section, FRIED EGG have produced an EP that commands your attention - a stark, original effort that obliterates any generic, poorly recorded garbage in its way. Need we say more? Each copy comes housed in a glue pocket sleeve adorned with artwork by Nathan Ward.
There are 100 copies available for mail order while they last; 30 on EGG PATTERN VINYL (these were more expensive to make, hence the difference in price) and 70 on CLEAR YELLOW VINYL.
LONG KNIFE - SEWERS OF BABYLON EP
Following a couple years of relative dormancy after a series of tours in support of a well received full length that spanned various continents, PDX punk heroes LONG KNIFE return with five tracks of sonic venom in the form of the "SEWERS OF BABYLON" EP. The recipe remains the same, the delivery just as biting, and the addition of Keith Testerman on drums (WARCRY, LEBENDEN TOTEN, HELLSHOCK, etc) adds even more to the already savage total package. Portland's 21st century Kings of Punk are still alive and well. Each record comes in a glue pocket sleeve with full color cover art by Dennis Dread.
There are 100 copies on OPAQUE RED VINYL available for mail order while they last.
Copies of each record can be found at the Beach Impediment Records Big Cartel.
Both records are streaming in their entirety over at the Beach Impediment Records Bandcamp.
In the event you'd like wholesale copies of the record or if you have any other questions, please send an email to beachimpediment[at]gmail[dot]com.
The following distros / stores will have copies of these new releases soon, if not already: SORRY STATE RECORDS, LA VIDA ES UN MUS (UK), MATERIAL WORLD, GRAVE MISTAKE, FEEL IT RECORDS, NECK CHOP, FAITH / VOID (Canada), CRUEL NOISE, STATIK SHOCK (Germany), PAINKILLER RECORDS, CHIMICHANGA DISTRO, VINYL CONFLICT, ERSTE THEKE TONTRAGER (Germany), REVELATION RECORDS, and more that are in the works.
And as always, in the event its more convenient to work with these fine folks, both releases will be available from EBULLITION and REVHQ in the not too distant future!
In addition to these new releases, there's a metric shit ton of new distributed records available as well. Here's a sampling of what we're working with:
HUMAN GAS - DISCOGRAPHY LP
AGGRESSION PACT - INSTANT EXECUTION EP
V/A - BLOODSTAINS ACROSS VIRGINIA 12"
TYRANT - S/T EP
PLOMO - TODO PASA DEMO TAPE
RIXE - BAPTIME DU FEU EP

Tuesday, January 17, 2017
WASSSAAAAPPP? I'm rather elated to kick off 2017 with a record of this caliber! Let's just get down to it:
All the way from the city of champions, CONCEALED BLADE follow up their massive 2015 demo with thirteen more tracks of the pummeling hardcore punk that those aligned with the Braddock Hit Factory have been churning out for many moons now; keeping the emphasis on quality over commonplace, riffs over a complete lack of riffs, and really just hardcore over horse shit. This 12" platter is evidence that THE BLADE still ain't for the weak and is just as precise and cutting in the execution of their songs as they've ever been. As a sage like man of wisdom probably once bellowed over a lukewarm bottle of Straubs and a half eaten pizza boat at the Rock Room, "YINZ WANTED DA BEST WELL YINZ GOT DA BEST!"
There are 100 copies on translucent green vinyl for mailorder only that are available here while they last. UPDATE: They gone!
The record is also streaming in its entirety and available for download via the Beach Impediment Records Bandcamp page.
If you'd like to obtain wholesale copies of this record, please drop me a line at beachimpediment[at]gmail[dot]com and I'll get ya sorted.
The following distros / stores will have copies of the record soon, if not already: SORRY STATE, LA VIDA ES UN MUS (UK), GRAVE MISTAKE, FEEL IT, CRUEL NOISE, FAITH / VOID (Canada), VINYL CONFLICT, MATERIAL WORLD, ELECTRIC HEAT (Canada), REVELATION, VELTED REGNUB, TO LIVE A LIE, GENERAL SPEECH, SIT & SPIN, ARMAGEDDON SHOP, HAVOC RECORDS, EXTREME NOISE, XSENTIENTX (Germany), SLUGSALT, CELEBRATED SUMMER, BRAIN ABUSE, DEAD TANK, BBB RECORDS, HAUSFRAU RECORDS, ALL DAY RECORDS, JOINT CUSTODY, DEATHWISH INC, and some more that are in the works.
And as always, wholesale copies of this record and all other in print Beach Impediment titles are available from EBULLITION and REVHQ.
On the distro front, there are a plethora of new titles, foreign and domestic, available at the moment:

Greetings! I'm rather excited to FINALLY announce the release of this one, as it's been a project in the making for a few years now! After a series of road blocks in nearly every phase of the process of this recording, the OMEGAS - POWER TO EXIST 12" is in my possession and ready to roll! I've been a major fan of this band since day one and was absolutely tickled that they asked me to be a part of releasing the latest chapter in their hardcore odyssey. Words fail me at the moment, so I'll let the poetic ramblings of a certain Toronto born Mad Man take the reigns from here:
"Much anticipated answer to 2011's 'Blasts of Lunacy,' the Omegas leave off where they picked up, coming back to their personalized vision of the nooks and crannies of early NYHC and proto hardcore cum Darby Crash cum Nollywood prankster at ever more obtuse and challenging angles. The riffs implode and the changes are impossible to follow without a map that probably leads somewhere unpleasant. Even still, the confusion feels like a stroke of luck. The gift is not knowing what you're hearing yet but knowing you've wanted to hear it your whole life. Duck, dive, spit, slam, kill: Makes you go Boom Boom. Flash forward, the power to exist. FFO: getting stop and frisked by the NYPD and having them find a giant lollypop in your otherwise empty bag/wondering who killed Tony Frenchman"
-Jonah Falco, 2016
Each record comes in a full color jacket adorned with a collaborative painting by Spoiler and Hoagie along with a printed inner sleeve, safely secured in a lovely shrink wrap.
There are 200 copies on red vinyl for mailorder customers available here while they last!
The record is also streaming in its entirety over at the (relatively) new Beach Impediment Records Bandcamp - it's also available for download as well in case some of ya that don't mess around with vinyl records and whatnot.
If you're like to obtain wholesale copies of this record, drop me a line at beachimpediment[at]gmail[dot]com
ATTENTION CANADIANS!!! The ever so awesome FAITH / VOID in Toronto will have a metric shit ton of this release for sale, both online and in the store. And yes, they will have color copies as well! So, I urge you to please order this record from them here (and if they're not up yet please be patient, they'll be up soon). As I'm sure you know by now, shipping from America to Canada is a nightmare and it is my hope that this option will help you all out a little bit. They might also have a limited amount of wholesale copies as well, but you'll have to contact them to check and see regarding that.
In other news, the repress of the WARTHOG - S/T EP has finally arrived as well! 500 copies on black vinyl with red center labels. The first pressing of 1,000 copies disappeared in a bit over a week this past August / September, so if ya missed out the first time around get on it!
On the distro front, I got a lot of new stuff kicking around! Here's a glimpse at some of it:
BLAZING EYE - WAYS TO DIE EP
BLAZING EYE - LONELY CORPSE EP
DISCLOSE - FEAR OF THE WAR Tape (Japankore deadstock, should have more soon in the event I sell out of them quick)
THE STRAND - SECONDS WAITING LP (cool old power pop reissue!)
BAD NOIDS - IT'S A DOGGIE BAG WORLD EP
WET BRAIN - S/T EP
JJ DOLL - S/T EP
TORTURE CHAIN - WASTING SYNDROME LP
WOUND MAN - ROLLED EP
VIDEO FILTH - S/T EP
+ plenty more! I've also dropped the prices on the 7" and 12" clearance bins, so check em out!
And for those that like to look forward into the future, here's a wee glimpse at some upcoming B.I.R. releases:
CONCEALED BLADE 12" (in production, hoping to have it out early 2017)
FRIED EGG new 7"
BLOOD PRESSURE new 7"
+ some other fun stuff that I can't quite let loose yet. Stay tuned!
That does it for now! December will mark 5 years of Beach Impediment Records. Many thanks to all of you for the support and interest over that stretch of time. See you again in early 2017 when the CONCEALED BLADE 12" is out! Take care.
Friday, August 26, 2016
Greetings! It's been quite the summer to say the very least and I am rather ecstatic to end it with this monster of a record finally seeing the light of day. Ecstatic is probably an understatement to be honest. Let me just say that hearing this record for the first time around March or April, after having sampled the deluge of works that the hardcore punk world had spewed upon me at that point in 2016, was absolutely invigorating! Anyways, I'll leave it at that, enough of my jibber jabber, here's the info:
NYC hardcore punks WARTHOG return with what could possibly be their best recorded output yet. It's been a couple years since their EP's on Katorga Works and Iron Lung Records were unleashed upon us all and in that time the members of the Hog have perfected their particular formula and have finally delivered four more tracks of pounding hardcore savagery that stands out ten fold from most of the bullshit that fans of the genre are bombarded with on a regular basis. Are you a functioning human in a functioning world? Each record comes in a glue pocket sleeve along with a two color risograph printed insert.
There are 200 copies on Opaque Cream vinyl that are available for mailorder here via the Beach Impediment Records webstore.
**UPDATE: COLOR VINYL IS GONE, SOLD OUT IN A FEW HOURS.**
You can hear a track from the record here via the Beach Impediment Records Soundcloud.
The record is also streaming in its entirety via the new Beach Impediment Records Bandcamp here (also, expect more B.I.R. jams from the past 5 years to be uploaded to that new Bandcamp in the coming weeks!)

Also, here's a few updates on Beach Impediment releases since we last spoke:
-The represses for the BLOOD PRESSURE - NEED TO CONTROL 12". ABSOLUT / PARANOID - JAWBREAKING MANGEL DEVASTATION Split 12" and CONCEALED BLADE - DEMO 2015 7" are in and going fast. These will not be repressed after this so nab em while ya can!
-After a good year and a half of production, the OMEGAS - POWER TO EXIST LP is finally at the plant! Shooting to have this one out by late winter 2016, stay tuned. In the meantime, you can hear songs from it here and here.
-And just for good measure / for those that don't like reading a bunch of crap, here's a list of what's coming up on B.I.R.:
OMEGAS - POWER TO EXIST
CONCEALED BLADE new LP
BLOOD PRESSURE new EP
+ some other goodies in the works that I can't let out of the bag yet.
That does it. As always, thanks for the support and talk soon!
PS: I wanted to say thank you to all who have reached out and lent a helping hand over the past few months in lieu of the death of a friend and longtime band mate, Brandon Ferrell. The outpouring of support for his widow and children in their greatest time of need has been awe inspiring to say the least and being a part of throwing the benefit gig earlier this month was exhausting yet ultimately rewarding (a special shout out to all the bands that traveled so far to be there and all the amazing record labels that provided records for the raffle, and the folks that did benefit shows in other cities!!!). Seeing friends from all over come together for that event along with all the people from the global hardcore punk community that contributed to the GoFundMe that Baybay set up for the Ferrell family (which is still up, feel free to contribute by clicking here) has been a reminder of the amazing company that I keep as a result of having been involved in all of this for so long. Much love to all of ya.
