B. The Runaway
We’ve got a few pieces of good news to let everyone know about. First of all, the City of Ships “Minor World” LPs finally arrived yesterday. They look beautiful, they are super heavy 210 gram vinyl and they are worth the wait.
They will start shipping out today to everyone who pre-ordered them. So, keep an eye on your doorstep for this amazing record.
Second, we have a couple new releases on the way that we are very excited about. We will be bringing you the debut 7″ from Gainesville’s Post Teens. Four tracks of insanely catchy, blown-out goodness from members of Asshole Parade, Torche,
Dead Friends and Averkiou.
Also we have a split release on the way with our friends at
Kiss of Death in the form of a new 7″ from The Future Now.
It’s two brand new grungy jams and their best work yet.
Both 7”s should see the light of day by FEST X in late October.
