Three countries down and one to go. First was Sweden. Then came Canada. Third was Italy and now for the final country, which should come as no surprise if you were paying attention to the labels helping release the 2x12" 8-way. Through Love Records is covering Sweden. Zegema Beach Records takes Canada. Shove Records will be handling Italy. The other label is Blood Of The Young Records, which means the fourth country is the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! And who is the first band? Well, it's SLEEPER WAVE from Massachusetts and they play and amazing blend of Level Plane throwback screamo, hardcore and even jazz. We are super stoked to be releasing music from such talented individuals...speaking of which, they are a 3-piece with all three members sharing vocal duties! So, next week the collection of bands will be complete. Until then, here is the unfinished 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
2 - ?
Last year SLEEPER WAVE released their debut EP on cassette out of 100 (mastered by Will Killingsworth and released by Akashita Corp.) which ZBR has in stock for sale right here. We've also posted what we consider to be their best song thus far, and are excited as hell to hear what the band produces for this 8-way split. You should also hit up their bandcamp which is linked here.
Gimme Fiddy -> 50% OFF EVERYTHING IN THE ENTIRE DISTRO!!!
There's no shame in it, but Zegema Beach Records is struggling. We're investing hundreds upon hundreds of dollars each month into new releases - money that also supports our family - but with a full six weeks of zero sales it has become obvious that the label is unsustainable in its current state. It's not just that we're not selling enough, we're not really selling anything. We can't continue supporting new music without others supporting us.
So in an attempt to create some kind of cash flow for future projects we are having a two-week 50% off sale. That's 50% off everything. EVERYTHING. That means that all purchases are well under our cost but at this point selling at a loss is better than not selling at all. This isn't a cry for help. It's a statement. 2016 is looking like a make-or-break year for Zegema Beach Records.
To get the 50% off your order simply type "gimmefiddy" in the discount box when ordering. If you have any difficulty OR you would like to pay via Paypal just send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you to all who have supported ZBR thus far, and to those who may in the future.
Members from Spanish screamo act OsoLuna have also formed a new band named DREI AFFEN. Last week they launched their bandcamp with a track from their upcoming 12"LP which ZBR is all too stoked to be helping with. We had to pass on OsoLuna's last 12" because of money restrictions and have regretted it since and we aren't about to make the same mistake here. The bandcamp is linked here and the song is also embedded below. Think OsoLuna but with no softer, ambient bits - as this is ferocious and unrelenting crust/screamo/hardcore.
Last week YOUNG MOUNTAIN, the post-hardcore/screamo band from Sweden that we all know and love, released 2 songs on a soundcloud premiere coupled with a new music video for the song "HMS Slowmotion" at Festival Rykten (linked here). You can jam the songs via the band's soundcloud here and the video is embedded below. Enjoy!!!
