Big update today in terms of stock. The really huge news is that the RESPIRE 'Gravity and Grace' 12"LP pre-order just went up. We expect these beauties in (most likely) for an October 6th release date but that's not set in stone. The 12" will come with a lyric/poster insert and will come on both black and white 12" vinyl out of 300. I have one shirt left in stock for the LP as well, linked here.
We also acquired the HIVE MIND 'Demo' tapes in the US earlier this week and now that bad boy is in stock. The black tapes come in a crazy amazing o-card with a lyric paper wrap that keeps everything in place. Design by Cory Lamping. Sounds like Daughters meets Phoenix Bodies, aka killer screamy grindcore/hardcore.
For fans of: Daughters, Discordance Axis and Phoenix Bodies
Abrasive, chaotic and screamy grindcore from Bloomington, Indiana. Two guitars, drums and vocals (no bass), these four fellas adopt local heroes' Phoenix Bodies intense and explosive sound with a vibe all their own. Excellent debut and fantastic live band.
50 black tapes that come in a two-piece heavy paper o-card and lyric shell and look unreal.
A quick reminder that the new OLD SOUL 'Blue Heron' 12"LP is in stock and this final release by the band marks their fourth LP and sixth overall. Included below are links to some OLD SOUL special deals!!!
For fans of: Ostraca, City Of Caterpillar and Deafheaven
The newest LP from these six Michigan heroes is nothing short of stunning. Massive movements of post-rock, hardcore, screamo and black metal will give your ears more than they can handle.
Black vinyl. 4 songs. 2 double-sided poster inserts with lyrics! Absolutely stunning!!!
The DREI AFFEN 12"EPs with silkscreened b-sides should be in stock in late September or early October. If you haven't heard this debut 6-song masterpiece of crust and screamo from members of OsoLuna you are missing out big time. Expect to see it in a few best of lists at the end of the year. Jam and download it on the ZBR bandcamp right here.
The NIONDE PLÅGAN and THE WORLD THAT SUMMER split 12" is coming along nicely, with more than five labels currently willing to help out. Each band will be contributing two songs on the same side with a silkscreened b-side. The TWTS songs will be recorded in September in between their many shows, some of which are listed below. If you are unfamiliar with either band be sure to listen to NIONDE PLÅGAN's full length banger 'Frustration' right here and THE WORLD THAT SUMMER's split with solo-project-turned-band The Apostles Of Eris here. TWTS's vocalist and guitarist released a free podcast for streaming download last week on the OMSB Podcast page right here. Lastly, it will be posted with more details next week, but THE WORLD THAT SUMMER is going on a Canadian mini-tour for four days this September 21st (Hamilton), 22nd (Montreal), 23rd (Toronto) and 24th (looking for Peterborough or Waterloo).
The past week over at the (((((OPENmind/SATURATEDbrain))))) blog two Zegema Beach Records shows were posted so be sure to check them out. The first was at Doors Pub (aka ZBR central) in Hamilton and the second was from a basement show in Cambridge, Ontario - a million thanks to Alberto, Nate and Megan for hooking up that amazing piece of history.
