Delving into the second half of the 8-band/4-country 2x12" split that will be released on Zegema Beach Records, Blood Of The Young, Through Love Records and Shove Records later this year. Following Sweden and Canada is ITALY!!! Ooooo yeah there are so many good Italian bands. The first of two on this 2x12" is PASTEL from Bari! They have already released a split 12"EP with Merridew on ZBR and the label and band have stayed in touch since. Pastel consists of only two members but the punch they deliver is undeniable. Crossing emo, punk, shoegaze and screamo, Pastel have quickly made a name for themselves as one of the best current Italian emo bands. The Merridew split 12" is currently on sale here (we only have a few copies left) and the band also released a 4-way split 12" (listed here) as well as a 12"LP (listed here). The next band from Italy will be posted next week along with more updates, distro and an exclusive podcast!!! The 8-way split is listed below:
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)

Here is a youtube embed of my favourite song that the band has released. It's beautiful, goddammit. You should also hit up their bandcamp which is linked here.
The Zegema Beach Records' KIKEN bandcamp page is up and linked heeeeeyaaaaa with the two songs from Zampler #5 and #6. Next week on February 29th the Kiken pre-order will go up along with an exclusive song premiere on the (((((OPENmind/SATURATEDbrain))))) blog. Below is the second instructional video from the band and was a precursor to the 8-song LP being released March 21st, 2016.
There are way too many new posters in the New Items section to list so we've got a link to them all right here. Among all of our C, D and E stock a few gems include Daughters, Denali and Engine Down. Next week we will be posting the one-person screamo phenomenon Thisismenotthinkingofyou's discrography on cd and numerous cassettes which are crazy limited and super amazing.
