After the Fall
After the Fall just wrapped the recording on their newest full-length, so we better get up this review of their last 7", Collar City, before it's just ridiculously dated.

Collar City is three short bursts of the band's unfettered take on aggressive punk rock, informed plenty by pessimistic-sounding melodic hardcore and technical skatepunk. However, the latter of these styles seems like much less of an influence on the band than usual, save a brief flash of shredding during closer "Comatose." Additionally, the recording is noticeably rougher... READ MORE

Welcome Pillow Talk To The Family /// New EP Coming Soon



We're pleased to welcome our new friends Pillow Talk from Memphis, TN to our family! We'll have a new EP from the band to release in early 2015 - more information coming soon!

Formed in the spring of 2013 and the band immediately began touring the east coast and recorded their first EP, Recreational Feelings. After several regional tours with Turnover and Foxing, wrecking their van in a tornado, and a stint at SXSW, the band came home wanting to find a new sound. They found themselves spending the summer of 2014 writing spacier and melody driven material for their upcoming EP.




Welcome Old Flings to the Family /// New LP in 2015



We're stoked to finally welcome our friends Old Flings to our ever growing family!

Since the release of their 2012 debut LP, Spite, Old Flings has contributed to four split 7” EPs released across an array of indie labels: North Carolina-based Bitter Melody Records, New York-based Tour Van Records, Tampa, FL-based Kiss of Death Records, and UK-based Speedowax Records. After several tours up and down the East Coast, an excursion into Canada, and several regional and national festivals, the band is taking time off from their semi-regular touring schedule to focus on writing for a forthcoming second full-length album.

Long Live the Broken Heart.

Welcome Henrietta to the Family /// Debut LP Out This Summer



We're very excited to announce the addition of Orlando, FL Henrietta to our family and release the band's debut LP, The Trick Is Not Minding. Set for an August release, the LP will be available for pre-order later in late June. Music coming very soon!

Some bands slap themselves together in a reckless summer night; constructed with excitement and spontaneity and the sort of sweat that drips in cluttered basements, they are often appreciated more for their abandon than their magnitude. But then there are bands like Orlando, FL's Henrietta, who somehow manage to bottle the sparkle of their inception and nurture it into something that burns both brighter and longer—an inferno compared to a firecracker. Henrietta is powerful because they chose to perfect their art, to kindle a forceful fire, rather than light the fuse and smile at the bang it made. Six years in the making, The Trick Is Not Minding is well worth the wait.
