OUT NOW ON BEACH IMPEDIMENT RECORDS!!! Two releases at once!
VAASKA / IMPALERS – SPLIT 7”
Both VAASKA and IMPALERS, who are arguably two of the best hardcore punk bands out of Austin, TX these days, have teamed up to unleash one of the most blistering split 7"s I've heard in years. A limited tour edition was available back in August for the East Coast/Midwest tour that both bands embarked on, but the legitimate pressing is now finally available to the masses! Each band shows the world how it should be done over the course of only two songs each; with VAASKA executing their mastery of raw hardcore all the while straying from the plethora of bands that have beaten the style into a boring submission and IMPALERS showcasing the ability to produce their own uniquely virulent metalpunk fist pumpers that have become the band's earmark over the past few years. Each record comes in a glue pocket sleeve with art by the great Brian Miller. Look out for a West Coast tour with these bands this winter! 150 copies on translucent dark green vinyl for mailorder while they last.
OBLITERATION – WAR IS OUR DESTINY EP
Almost lost to the sands of time, but resurrected for a limited time by Beach Impediment Label, here's the final EP from Obliteration. More of the Americanized Scandi-core from their last 2 EP's: glass-in-throat vocals, driving manic drums, abusive tasteless guitar solos, and the title track is a dumbed down version of the St. Vitus classic. No over-cooked crasher crust, just balls to the wall hardcore punk. Limited one time pressing of 600 copies, 100 of which are on clear vinyl and available for mailorder while they last.

A few other items of note:
-MERCY KILLINGS - S/T EP will be out in November. The vinyl is in, just waiting on the art. Really excited to get this one out! Northeast folks, be on the lookout for some gigs in your area come the first weekend of December! The Boston gig is looking STACKED!
-MOD SUBS test presses have been approved! Everything else is in, just waiting on the vinyl. This one has been a long time coming, beyond stoked to get this out! Hopefully this will be released alongside the MERCY KILLINGS 7".
-KREMLIN are calling it a day. Legit fucking bummer, but on the flipside I am confident those guys will continue making fucked up and awesome music. It was a pleasure working with and getting to know those guys, they have a few more shows lined up- the last of which is at NOT DEAD YET FEST in Toronto. I have a few more copies of the LP left for those who might have missed out early on, not sure if this will be repressed so nab it while ya can!
That does it for now.
