Check out new songs by them, as well as videos from the other bands: Terry Green, Never Trust A Wizard and Toucan Slam. Be sure to pick up a copy of the split 10" with Sweden's Nionde Plågan below. There's also a new song embedded to the right over here that we played for the first time at this show. (p.s. I scream for this band)We will also, obviously, play at the ZBR Fest near the end of the final night, aka Saturday June 3rd.
Speaking of 10"s, the SALIGIA 'The New Innocence' 10"EP is shipping so grab a beautiful copy of this reversed Funeral Diner/Evylock 10" today!
ZBR066 Release date: March 17th, 2017
For fans of: Envy, Isis, Circle Takes The Square and Amber
The epitomy of post-hardcore and post-metal, NIONDE PLÅGAN (Sweden) and THE WORLD THAT SUMMER (Canada) drop two and three songs, respectively, of heavy, brooding, ambient and political punk rock.
10" black vinyl. 2 songs by NP and 3 by TWTS. All pre-orders ship with a free Zampler #8 cd limited to 50 copies.
ZBR068 Release date: Early 2017
For fans of: Louise Cyphre, Republic Of Dreams and Lentic Waters
Holy moly this is the new SALIGIA record from Lars, Jojo and the gang over in Germany. Includes members of Republic Of Dreams, The Apoplexy Twist Orchestra, Lentic Waters and Resurrectionists. This particular band plays extremely devastating emo-violence with strong grind tendencies. Amazing 10".
10" black vinyl. 6 songs.
(((((OPENmind/SATURATEDbrain))))) also did a full LP review and interview with our Swedish loves in TRACHIMBROD. Check it out here. The new 12"LP is in stock and shipping now and is easily one of the best LPs of 2017!
ZBR077 Release date: April 3rd, 2017
For fans of: Suis La Lune, Raein and Kaddish
Beautiful, dreamy, epic and screamy Swedish post-hardcore/post-rock from members of I Love Your Lifestyle and Nionde Plagan. These 9 songs are the most cohesive and catchy of the band's career but still include tons of passionate yells and screams. Pre-orders come with a free Zamper #8 cdr/50. This is a co-release between Zegema Beach Records, Dog Knights Productions and Through Love Recs.
12" vinyl on clear+green mix/200 and black/300. 9 songs.
The TRUMAN tapes for 'Ma Doi' are packed up and ready to go. The official release date is mid-May but pre-orders are shipping now and come with a free Zampler #8 cd/50!
On the other hand MAJOREL's 'Restless in Memory' was released earlier this month and is shipping now. Check out this unreal supergroup of Richmond screamo below!
TRUMAN - 'Ma Doi' cassette
released May 2017
For fans of: Ostraca, Swan Of Tuonela and Kelut.
3 lengthy tracks totaling 17 minutes of epic, driving, atmospheric and screamy-as-fuck hardcore. Beautiful and caustic, this juxtaposition serves the band well with explosive and menacing screamo held together with calm, serene interludes. Ships late April for an early May 2017 release date.
White cassettes with foldover j-card. 3 songs.
MAJOREL - 'Memory in Restlessness' cassette
released April 4th, 2017
Richmond, Virginia’s MAJOREL, the newest addition to the label’s impressive catalogue, resembles the acclaimed aesthetic of screamo / post hardcore explorers like NEIL PERRY, WELCOME THE PLAGUE YEAR, CAPSULE, and features heart-wrenching multi-vocals, smart changes of pace and well-thought dynamics that will keep you engaged throughout the entire listen. The end result is a body of work that praises the golden era of screamo bands under the Level-Plane Records umbrella and pushes the subgenre in a bold continuous direction, hopefully putting it back at the forefront of the DIY hardcore culture once again.
“Restless In Memory” by MAJOREL is available on April 4th on lavender tapes via Zegema Beach Records and will come in a clear plastic shell. All pre-orders (available today!) come with a free copy of the Zampler #8 – I’m Doing My Part cdr/50 with some sexy ass art from Connie Sgarbossa.
(((((OPENmind/SATURATEDbrain))))) was also involved of the premiering of SEEYOUSPACECOWBOY's new song from their upcoming 7" on Zegema Beach Records. Read about the band and jam the fuck out of this new track right here or by clicking on the album art.
