Beach Impediment is proud to close out 2013 with the debut EP by MERCY KILLINGS. Formed earlier in the year by a cadre of chaps who’d previously served time in DIRECT CONTROL, WASTED TIME, and a slew of other acts; the prime directive hasn’t changed much for the folks in question. There is still a desire to produce and execute punishing hardcore punk, the results of which are captured on this 6 song EP. This is harsh and ugly music for those with a matching demeanor and appearance. Each record comes in a felt based glue pocket sleeve adorned with full color art by Guillem Muro.
There are 150 copies on blue vinyl for mailorder.

I've also stocked the distro with tons of titles from the likes of THE ABUSED, THE HIGH AND THE MIGHTY, LOW CHARGE, ABJECT PAX, FRENZY, ATTACK SS, CONCRETE ASYLUM, ALERTA!, NEMESIS, and many more to come.
MERCY KILLINGS had some left over T-SHIRTS from the weekend we just did so I put some of those up in the store as well (by the way, huge thanks to anyone who caught those gigs, its appreciated!!)
As stated above, the 2nd and busiest year yet of B.I.R. will be winding down with this release. Thanks a ton to all who have supported the label, its appreciated for sure! Beach Impediment yielded the following releases in 2013:
HASSLER - AMORALITY EP
KREMLIN - DRUNK IN THE GULAG 12"
GAS RAG - HUMAN RIGHTS EP
VAASKA / IMPALERS - SPLIT 7"
OBLITERATION - WAR IS OUR DESTINY EP
MERCY KILLINGS - S/T EP
So again, thanks from the sole ape that runs this whole operation! 2014 is gearing up to be interesting as well. I will say that the MOD SUBS 12" will FINALLY see the light of day early on in the year. Beyond that, I just sent off the GAS RAG 12" to be cut, so hopefully that fucking BEAST of a record will be ready to roll late winter/early spring. After that I got a few more things lined up, I'll be sure to keep you all posted as they develop.
That does it for now.
