Pre-Order Courtesy Drop - Songs to Drive to; Cry, and Make Love To LP ///
We're pleased to launch pre-orders for Courtesy Drop's debut LP, Songs to Drive to; Cry, and Make Love To. Frontman and chief songwriter Paul Chalos describes the record as written from three different phases of the same perspective; the phases being depression, complacency, and reflection.
Brooklyn Vegan is premiering "Goodbye, Fairline Drive" from forthcoming release right here.
To pre-order: store.animalstylerecords.com.
The LP copy includes 13 tracks and will also include 5 bonus instrumental songs with the digital download.
Young Turks - Where I Rise 7"/Digital out Nov 5
We're pleased to continue working with our Portland, OR brothers Young Turks. On November 5 we'll release Where I Rise on 7" and digitally. Stay tuned for new music, pre-orders, and tour information.
Where I Rise is a declaration of life moving forward, while trying to let go of the past. Stand out track "Zone K" begins, "About 364 days a year, I'm not thinking about you." Clearly vocalist Matt Koenig has moved forward from Where I Lie but not without a painful reminder of what once was. The former themes of betrayal and hopelessness have been exchanged for the strength to overcome and the will to endure.
Returning to D-Wreck Studios in Portland, Oregon, YOUNG TURKS were able to capture the unique sound and feel of northwest hardcore. Enlisting Alex Estrada of Earth Capital Studios (Touché Amore, Joyce Manor, Silver Snakes) to mix, the final product walks the line between a polished studio effort and the raw energy of a live performance.
Welcome Save Your Breath /// 'There Used To Be A Place For Us' LP/CD/Digital Out Oct 8 (US) / Oct 7 (UK)
We couldn't be more delighted to welcome Save Your Breath to our ever growing family. The Welsh pop punks group will release their new album, ‘There Used to Be a Place For Us’ in the US on October 8 and in the UK on October 7. Produced by up-and-coming Welsh producer, Gethin Pearson, and mixed by Stuart Richardson, the record represents our first international release!
Initially introduced to U.S. audiences via their first proper release – the ‘Nothing Worth Having Comes Easy’ EP – which was released in America via Billie Joe Armstrong’s Adeline Records, the band followed that up with their 2011 full-length, ‘Vices”.
