The final recordings from the initial SWALLOWS NEST sessions when Dave was still in New Zealand. These four songs portray a range of emotions, but generally frustration, anger and screaming are at the forefront. Kinda screamo, kinda hardcore and kinda post-hardcore, the members have spent time in Machina Rex, Yung Nat$, The World That Summer, мятеж, Apostles Of Eris, etc. and go on tour with Crowning in Europe this summer.

EYELET tapes

It’s no secret that ZBR is a big fan of Eyelet. I think we have nearly everything they’ve ever recorded up in the store. So when I got a sneak preview of their new EP, of course I thought we would release it. I hit up their drummer Robbie (of мища and Chug Life blog fame), and while he and the band were game, they had a couple stipulations. Much like the digital release, they wanted it to be a surprise… and they wanted it to be free.

So we said fuck it. The new cassette from Eyelet “The Howling in the Hall”, is free. A gift from us and the band.

There’s 50 total.

We’re happy to give them away, but we didn’t want to also pay your shipping. So here’s how it works…

The next 50 orders in either the Canada or US store come with the new Eyelet cassette. No promo code or anything like that. This is all the stock we’ll have and this is the only way to get it, so go ahead and pick something out.

If you buy a Senza tape, it comes with an eyelet tape.
Snag a Respire second pressing, it comes with an eyelet tape.
Preorder the new Drei Affen? Guess what…it’s coming with an eyelet cassette.
Don’t like eyelet, but buy the Binary 12”? I’ve got bad news, it comes with an eyelet cassette.

The only way to totally fuck us over is to only buy a sticker, so don’t only buy a sticker. You’ll waste a cool thing.


12”s and tapes ship in August.

SENZA - Even A Worm Will Turn (12"LP)
from 6.00

For fans of: Truman, Flesh Born and Jeromes Dream.

Released May 28th, 2019. Tapes ship immediately and 12”s ship August 2019.

Our tag line for this record has been “YOU ARE NOT READY” so we should probably drop that now, for it is here in all its glory. SENZA’s first LP ‘Even A Worm Will Turn’ features 12 utterly devastating screamo/emo-violence influenced by early Jeromes Dream but much more technical and with heavier metal leanings. Three vocalists screech at the top of their lungs and those drums…my god, those drums. 12”s and tapes available from the band, Zegema Beach and Middle Man.

12” black vinyl /500 and tapes /100 (50 blue + 50 white). Download code included.
