The 2nd press of the GAS RAG - HUMAN RIGHTS EP has finally arrived and is starting to disappear quicker than I thought it would. 500 copies with red and yellow center labels, best get ya some. MRR had some pleasant words about this slab:
I concur! Anyways, as usual single copies are available in the webstore and multiple copies are of course available from me via wholesale directly or even from other fine punk distributors. Interesting trades will be considered as always. The following distros/stores are hip to this shit and either have copies of the repress already or will have them soon:
HAVOC RECORDS, SORRY STATE, GRAVE MISTAKE, MMM DISCOS, REVHQ, EBULLITION, ARMAGEDDON SHOP, DISEASED AUDIO, BLACK WATER, SPHC, DISTORT REALITY, MAN IN DECLINE RECORDS, LOUD PUNK, SIT AND SPIN, SCHIZOPHRENIC RECORDS, DEATHWISH INC, and some others in the works.
And for you European folks not in the know, my main man Noel over at Even Worse Records has done a European pressing of this stellar record! So please order from him if you're over there, thanks!
The touring noted in the previous post is starting to wind down, but both DESPERAT and HASSLER got a few more gigs coming up so be sure to peep those should they come near you! Many thanks to everyone who went to go see GAS RAG and the VAASKA / IMPALERS tours, both bands sold out of their records completely and by all accounts had a good time. I do not have any of the tour edition of the VAASKA / IMPALERS split 7", all copies were given to the bands, so please do not email asking me for copies. Information on the legit press below.
Here's what I have on deck to have available to you all this fall:
MOD SUBS - PRIMITIVE BY TODAY'S STANDARDS 12" - BIR-006 (the gentlemen at Steady Sounds received and approved acetates for this one the other day, gears are finally starting to turn! One time pressing of 300 copies for this obscure Virginia punk recording session, stay tuned...)
VAASKA / IMPALERS - split 7" - BIR-008 (we were able to have some tests rushed for tour and those sold out very quickly. Now I'm just waiting for the actual records and covers. 2 songs each from 2 of Austin's finest!)
MERCY KILLINGS - S/T 7" - BIR-009 (debut EP from this VA/NC project featuring members of DIRECT CONTROL, GOVERNMENT WARNING, WASTED TIME, and STRIPMINES among others... mean HC punk. Tests have been approved, working out the art and all that fun stuff.)
OBLITERATION - WAR IS OUR DESTINY EP - BIR-010 (so I had a vague mention of this one in my last post, but here it is- the final recordings from one of my favorite projects from the Boston gang. I added a song to the B.I.R. Soundcloud a few weeks ago, be sure to check it out along with some songs from the other upcoming releases.)
Other shit of note:
- HARDCORE: GIMME SOME MORE still accepting submissions, its a comp so the process is bound to be slowed down a bit whilst waiting for some of the hot acts to submit tracks. I'll be sure to post any and all updates as they occur.
- MERCY KILLINGS 2 song promo tapes are gone from me, both SORRY STATE and FEEL IT grabbed a few copies off me at our gigs earlier in the month, stay tuned to their webstores if ya need one.
- Festival Season 2013 is in its final months. These great fest not only feature great bands we have released but are also all in the great nation of Canada: DISTORT VANCOUVER (featuring our pals DESPERAT and HASSLER), A VARNING FROM MONTREAL (with our buds in KREMLIN), and the fucking stacked NOT DEAD YET FEST (which will feature the first Canadian appearances of THE IMPALERS and VAASKA and will also see sets from GAS RAG and KREMLIN). So if you've been looking for an excuse to visit the great white north and catch some sick groups, then look into these.
- Summer is finally winding down and I got a few more exciting releases that are coming together slowly but surely. More on those as they develop.
