Exclusive Post Teens / Mauser Split Flexi Will Be Available at FEST 11


The weather has cooled off and the local venues are hiding their breakables and scrambling to stock their walk-ins with cheap beer. This could only mean one thing in Gainesville–FEST 11 is around the corner.  For the thousands of punks ascending on our dear city this weekend, we have a little treat for you. We got together with our pals POST TEENS and those lovable punks MAUSER to do a FEST 11 exclusive split flexi. POST TEENS contributed a brand new track, “Strapped in”, while MAUSER turned in their brutal cover of bombanfall’s “Mot En Stralande Framtid.” Two short little bursts of fury on one flexible record. Artwork was crafted by Mauser’s always tasteful and eloquent Adrian Rierson. There will be 500 of them and they will be available Friday at the Sound Study Recordings table in the Flea Market during registration as well as Arrow’s Aim Records all weekend.

City of Ships Unveil Cross-continental Tour, We offer the Minor World 210 gram LP for $7

Inline image 1

Incessant troubadours CITY OF SHIPS, recharged and revitalized are once again set to embark on a monster cross continental tour. The commanding trio are set to bring their thunderous live show to Canada, the US and Australia this July and August. The Ships are out in support of their latest effort, Minor World, an album that was met with critical adoration–rightfully called a “masterpiece” by Alternative Press and “the kind of effort that pushes the band closer to “they can do no wrong” status” by Absolutepunk.net.

To celebrate the band’s pilgrimage, we’ve got a few treats in store for COS fans. First up, we are temporarily lowering the price of Minor World on 210 gram (that’s as heavy as it gets folks) vinyl to just $7. The record can be purchased for that discounted price HERE. Secondly, we are running a contest with our good friends at Modern Vinyl to give away a couple copies of the LP. Head over to modern-vinyl.com to enter. As a final gift, COS’ two previous works released by Sound Study Recordings, Look What God Did To Us LP and the follow up Three Mile Bridge 7″ and both available for FREE digital download right HERE
