Here we are, the last of the 8-band/4-country 2x12" gatefold split. It's been fun and kind of exhausting posting each week, but with so much happening in the next little while we'll probably be posting every 2-3 weeks here, and weekly on the facebook page. I'm not going to draw this out any longer - We're extremely excited to announce that the final band (and second from the USA) on the 8-way will be Michigan's YOUTH NOVEL!!! ZBR helped release the band's first EP on cassette, will be helping on the split 7" with Coma Regalia and now this. We truly love those beautiful people. The other three labels assisting in this rather large venture are Through Love Records, Shove Records and Blood Of The Young Records. Here it is, in all it's glory, the finished list:
1 - VI SOM ÄLSKADE VARANDRA SÅ MYCKET (original post here)
2 - VIA FONDO (original post here)
1 - THE WORLD THAT SUMMER (original post here)
2 - NOUS ÉTIONS (original post here)
1 - PASTEL (original post here)
2 - LAMANTIDE (original post here)
1 - SLEEPER WAVE (original post here)
2 - YOUTH NOVEL
The 'Turned Around..." tape just went out of stock but we have spoken with Skeletal Lightning and another round of tapes is highly likely in the near future. Embedded below is our favourite song from the 'Turned Around' cassette titled "ii". The 7" split will, obviously and amazingly, be co-released by Middle Man Records (aka Shawn Decker/Coma Regalia). You should also hit up the Youth Novel bandcamp which is linked here.
As mentioned above, Zegema Beach Records is insanely excited to announce our involvement with the YOUTH NOVEL / COMA REGALIA split 7" that will be released relatively shortly. This split is unreal and will go extremely fast. Also coming up will be the 8-way 2x12" split and the second run of 'Turned Around...' tapes. There is a killer teaser video for the split with one of YOUTH NOVEL's two new songs from the Coma Regalia split 7" embedded below.
The split between APOSTLES OF ERIS / THE WORLD THAT SUMMER is going to be released on April 29th at The World That Summer release show in Hamilton at Doors Pub. APOSTLES OF ERIS unveiled a new song on (((((OPENmind/SATURATEDbrain))))) today from said split. The song is available below and a review of the entire AOE side is available via this link. We've also got a song from each band streaming on the ZBR bandcamp page, linked here.
VI SOM ALKSADE VARANDRA SA MYCKET / THEY SLEEP WE LIVE split 7"s are on their way from Germany as we type this. The incredible split will be available to order shortly on all label websites, including:
