Hey, it's 2016 and the B.I.R. shit show continues! I said I'd have these out in January but, as usual, the world of pressing records is a sly and unpredictable beast; a selfish lover, if you will. Regardless, they are FINALLY here and ready to roll, so let's get down to the nitty gritty:
BLOOD PRESSURE - NEED TO CONTROL 12"
BLOOD PRESSURE finally deliver "NEED TO CONTROL" as a follow up to their Self Titled EP that turned heads all over when it came out in 2014. After a few personnel changes and a slew of gigs up and down the East Coast, the boys churned out yet another absolute pounder for the masses. You know the deal - this one features ten tracks of scathing hardcore punk from the Steel City, crafted in the way that they know how to make it out there... which is of the ripping, bleak, and fucked up variety. Featuring full color cover art by Matt Bellosi.
100 copies on COKE BOTTLE CLEAR vinyl for mailorder while they last!
STRUTTER - S/T EP
Beach Impediment is pleased to introduce the debut EP from Austin's STRUTTER. Hot on the heels of a true ripper of a demo and a slew of US and Canadian dates with GLUE that the band closed out 2015 with, this four song 7" delivers more of their brand of raging hardcore punk, bringing to mind groups like WHITE PIGS and other frantic and vicious hardcore acts in that vein. Featuring members of IMPALERS, VAASKA, GLUE, and THEE NODES. Each record comes in a glue pocket sleeve featuring full color art by Scott Young.
150 copies on TRANSLUCENT BLUE vinyl for mailorder while they last!
A song from each record can be heard here.
I've also recently made up some BEACH IMPEDIMENT shirts that I've been wanting to make for years and just never got around to doing until recently. These new releases, shirt, and a slew of other B.I.R. releases and distro items can be obtained here.
And for all of you folks over in Europe, please note that the BLOOD PRESSURE - NEED TO CONTROL 12" is OUT NOW on EVEN WORSE RECORDS and WAY BACK WHEN RECORDS in The Netherlands and the STRUTTER - S/T EP will be OUT SOON on STATIC SHOCK RECORDS in the UK. Please order these releases from them, not only does it make sense to do so since you all share a land mass but recently postage prices in the USA got even worse than they were before! Thanks!
The following distros / stores will have copies of these new releases in the near future, if not already: SORRY STATE, FEEL IT, GRAVE MISTAKE, RECORD SHOP BASE (Japan), KATORGA WORKS, HELTA SKELTA RECORDS (Australia), TODO DESTRUIDO, END OF AN EAR, BRAIN ABUSE, DISTORTED PRESS, VELTED REGNUB, NAILGUN MURDER (Australia), SOAP AND SPIKES, HAUSFRAU RECORDS, ALL DAY RECORDS, DISCOS MMM, DERANGED, SAVAGE ERA, SLUG SALT RECORDS, REEL TIME, ARMAGEDDON SHOP, RUST AND MACHINE, and many more that are in the works.
In other B.I.R. release news, I finally got the repress of the AJAX - S/T EP in stock! 300 more with stamped back covers. The first press flew out of here pretty quick, so grab one while you can...
