Sexy as all hell, this debut EP by Chicago's CROWNING on cassette out of 70 covers everything you'd want in a release, epic screamo, pulverizing hardcore, dreamy noodles and a jazzy song. Ex-Pregnancy Pact.
70 transparent orange tapes that fluoresce under black lights and come in a foldover paper cover, all housed in a plastic, resealable sleeve. 5 songs.
ZAMPLER #8 - I'm Doing My Part cd is limited to a mere 50 copies (all other Zamplers are out of 300) and can ONLY be acquired through ZBR pre-orders. Once they are gone they are gone. Super limited. Super tracks. Super artwork from our friend Connie, who was the vocalist for René Descartes and now screams for SeeYouSpaceCowboy. Click on the tracklisting art below to stream/donate/download all 25 songs right fucking now.
The RENÉ DESCARTES Self Titled cassette EP is pretty much ready to go so we will likely have pre-orders up in late February/early March. As per the theme of this post, the only way to acquire a ZAMPLER #8 is to pre-order something from ZBR and this will be the second release to give you this opportunity.

Yesterday the (((((OPENmind/SATURATEDbrain))))) podcast did a special with Adrian, the vocalist of TERRY GREEN. The Mississauga based, screamy, post-hardcore band will be releasing their debut 12" on Zegema Beach Records by the summer. Adrian also plays bass for HUGE COSMIC and discusses his involvement with the band, whom TERRY GREEN released a split tape in 2015 on ZBR, linked here. Dave and the Drainpipe discussed some killer bands, including: Tweak, Voyage In Coma, Head Wound City, Adolina, Leer, This Town Needs Guns, Scowler and Pregnancy Pact. The Adolina song "Boiled Frogs" was an exclusive premiere from their upcoming LP. The band's previous split 12" with The Rabbit Theory was released on ZBR a few years back and we have about 5 copies left, which are linked here. To listen to the podcast click here or on Adrian's sexy picture above.
We noticed that we are pretty dang low on a couple of ZBR releases. Check them out below and snag them before they are gone, most likely forever!!!
