APOSTLES OF ERIS posted the second song from their side of the cassette split with The World That Summer. Tapes, full streaming and The World That Summer cassette release show all happen April 29th. Jam this shit at the AOE bandcamp linked right heeeeeya.
The PROTEST THE HERO box set is taking shape and should be going to the plant in April/May for a summer release. A reminder that this box set includes the first four LPs on four cassettes housed in a custom made box with art. The band recently finished releasing their 6-song bandcamp album 'Pacific Myth' which is linked here.
We recently received boxes from No Idea Records and Vitriol Records so all those goodies have now been posted. If you aren't aware of Graf Orlock their releases are all worth owning based on album artwork and design alone. In another week or two we will be posting the long lost Hydra Head box that sat untouched for almost four years before making its way to ZBR headquarters in Hamilton, Canada. Be on the lookout for crazy rare stuff in that, as well as tons of other news and premieres.
