Dischord Records news

added by Alex Deller on Friday December 1 2017 in Labels

Some cool stuff - old and new - on the way from the mighty Dischord! They'll be reissuing Shudder To Think's 'Ten Spot' LP (out Jan 19th), and before that a vinyl reissue of Smart Went Crazy's excellent parting shot, 'Con Art'. Keeping things current, there'll be a new Red Hare album out at some point in the new year, which'll be a split release with the band's own Hellfire Records.

Negative Space and Celetoids pre-orders

added by Alex Deller on Friday December 1 2017 in Pre-orders

The seemingly-unstoppable Drunken Sailor Records have two more records available for pre-order: an LP called'Gestalt' from jittery post-punkers Negative Space and a 12" EP from Croatian punx The Celetoids titled (somewhat ominously, if you ask me) 'Pupal Stage'.

B O L T - '( 0 4 )' pre-orders

added by Alex Deller on Wednesday October 25 2017 in Pre-orders

Narshardaa are taking pre-orders for B O L T's '( 0 4 )' CD and casette (the LP is coming via Dunk! Records). Says the label: "'( 0 4 )' is the first full-length by [ B O L T ] as a trio. In comparison to their earlier output the sound is more propulsive and structured. Emerging out of oppressive silence and ending up in ecstatic noise and drone, [ B O L T ] create waving sounds and crushing riffs. The trio presents a set in between the genres of drone, doom and metal."
