So here we are. Zegema Beach Records has been keeping a lid on the 8-way split 2x12" for over a year now. Today we release the first country and also the first band on the split. The 8 bands will be spread across 4 countries, with each country's side of the vinyl housing 2 bands from said country. The first country on the 8-way will be SWEDEN!!! No surprise there, as ZBR has been salivating and releasing records from Sweden since its inception because Swedish screamo is the fucking bees knees. The first band...VI SOM ÄLSKADE VARANDRA SÅ MYCKET. They released the best album of 2014 and have a split 7" with They Sleep, We Live coming out in the spring, both of which ZBR has helped with. They will be contributing 2 songs to their side. The next Swedish band will be revealed next week when we post the Adagio830 records in the distro! So, thus far:
1 - VI SOM ÄLSKADE VARANDRA SÅ MYCKET

Here is a track that will appear on the upcoming 7" split with They Sleep, We Live.
ZBR is proud to announce our involvement in the YOTSUYA KAIDAN 7" that will released in the coming months. The band hails from Ukraine and have a style not unlike Orchid, Virginia On Duty and Louise Cyphre. Some tracks will be released prior to the release so watch out for those because this 4-song EP is phenomenal emo-violence/screamo.
ZBR has been instructed - eehhrm! I mean, blessed to be delivering the first wave of our overlord masters in sonic/physical form on February 9th, 2016. All hail KIKEN! The cassette will be available only through the traveling ZBR distro at local shows. An upcoming date of human contact is:
February 6th, 2016 exchange origin point = D-Beatstro (toronto, ON)
THE WORLD THAT SUMMER finally got their bandcamp page up and you can stream one song for now but the other two should be up in the next month or two. Until then you can jam "Sad Boise State" on the bandcamp page here, watch their new live video for "Swine Dialect Incantation" below and see the band on February 6th at the Worst Gift release party, linked here.
