HEAVY DISCIPLINE

s/t LP Painkiller

Arriving in 2019 from the city of the living dead (that’s Pittsburgh), Heavy Discipline are back with their debut 12” of hardcore patterned in the classic X-Claim! mold and walking the line between anthemic and brutal. Lyrically of the moment, but musically timeless, these 12 songs are a constant tug of war between thrashing precision and the threat chaotic collapse. On colored vinyl.

BITTER BRANCHES

This May Hurt A Bit 12" Atomic Action

Fronted by Tim Singer of Deadguy, Kiss It Goodbye, and No Escape, Bitter Branches also features members of Walleye and Calvery, but bring a noisy and somewhat discordant brand of punk and indie that tosses elements of Black Flag, The Jesus Lizard, Shellac, and early Soundgarden and Nirvana into a blender. 12"ep includes digital download and an 11" x 17" poster. On colored vinyl.

FAKE EYES

A Drip Is All We Know 12" New Morality Zine

The tracks on this EP showcase the time and effort Fake Eyes put forth in the studio. Songs that had originally taken shape during the time of the demo are now infused with nuanced guitar layers, off-cue drumming, and choral vocal melody that was only perfected with time. "A Drip Is All We Know" is a record that you'll play over and over again - finding something new and captivating each time you listen.

MIL-SPEC

World House LP Lockin' Out

Undeterred by 2020's parade of catastrophe, Toronto, Canada's Mil-Spec follows up 2018's "Changes" EP with their long-playing debut for Lockin' Out. They're still cute, they're still playing fast and tunefully - with debts to Turning Point, later Bold, Leatherface, and Moss Icon - and they're still trying to figure out what the hell went wrong. Emerging out of the band's distinct blend of melody, aggression, atmosphere, sensitivity, wit, and wistful fatalism, "World House" comes uniquely equipped to channel the spirit of these miserable times.

Hardcore/punk legend and former frontman of bands like DYS, Dag Nasty, and All, Dave Smalley, and Don't Sleep return after heralded EPs with their debut full-length "Turn The Tide."

Additionally, influences to classic hardcore and punk bands such as 7 Seconds, Judge, Black Flag, and Bad Brains can be heard in their songs, a modern element is present as well. LP includes digital download. On colored vinyl.

DIE MY WILL

s/t LP Blasphemour

Die My Will was born from the same mid-'90s, Massachusetts, metallic hardcore scene that spawned bands like Barrit, Jesuit, Converge, etc., and brought unrelenting, down-tuned crunch that was comparable to bands like Eighteen Visions and Disembodied.

A CHORUS OF DISAPPROVAL

Truth Gives Wings To Strength LP Organized Crime

A Chorus Of Disapproval formed out of frustration to the hectic and undisciplined punk scene. Taking cues from the more extreme East Coast hardcore bands mixed with their own groove and style, the Chorus would arguably be the blueprint for the burgeoning, West Coast, militant straight-edge scene. Originally released 30 years ago on the formative Nemesis Records, "Truth Gives Wings To Strength" became an instant classic that has gone on to influence countless bands. LP includes download card. On colored vinyl.

Summer'S Fleeting Majesty 12" Head 2 Wall

This six-song, one-sided 12"ep is exactly the enormous, post-hardcore follow-up to their debut you've been hoping for.

Features members of Desperate Measures and Pulling Teeth. 12"ep includes a digital download and a blank B-side. Limited edition of 300 copies.

LIFE FORCE

Hope And Defiance LP New Age

Life Force is a straight-edge hardcore band out of Texas/Oklahoma. The group was formed in 2018 with a clear focus: the mission of paying homage to the sound, aesthetic, and spirit of classic youth-crew inspiration, albeit with a darker modern twist, while expressing pertinent socio-political themes and opinions through engaging lyrical content and a poignant on-stage message. With these combined elements, Life Force strives to forge a bond between band and audience, whether that means in a live setting or otherwise, that reinforces the core idea that a scene, a city, and even the world can be changed for the better through critical thought, persistence of will, and an ongoing commitment to first embodying this positive change at a personal level.
