A few exciting things! First off, the repress Glocca Morra's "Ghoul Intentions" 7"
will be available April 12. 200 more records on opaque yellow vinyl in full-color glue-pockets. And I'm very excited to announce that Cold Lovers' "Mouth" cassette is next up on the release list. One of the best hardcore bands in Chicago right now, Cold Lovers dole it out with tons of feedback at a mid-tempo pace. Three new songs and a live set recorded at Alderaan in Chicago. "Mouth" will be available April 1st, just in time for their (unfortunately) last show on April 5th.
Lastly, I am elated to announce the beginning of the Ice Age Records "Cassingle Series". Each Volume in the Cassingle Series will
offer up an original song by band X on side A backed with a cover song of their choosing on side B. Each cassingle will be housed in an o-card with uniform layout and will be accompanied by a different color obi strip matching the color of the tape.
The first Volume hails Antilles with "Present Tense" backed with a cover of My Bloody Valentine's "You Made Me Realise", and after that is Sweet Talk's "With Friends Like You, Who Needs Friends?" backed with a cover of His Hero Is Gone's "Chain Of Command". This is something I've been planning for a long time, and I'm very excited to see it finally coming to fruition. Volumes I & II should be available mid-April or early May. I'm excited about what the future will bring for the Cassingle Series, and I hope you are too. Stay tuned.
Cousins' Cassingle is finally in my hands! You can order copies over in the webstore, and download it on the bandcamp page. There were only 50 made, and they're mostly gone. Don't sleep on this one, and keep an eye out for their upcoming LP -- it's gonna kill! Ghoul Intentions is almost sold out, but a second press should be on its way in April. And a quick reminder: you can download (almost) all of the Ice Age catalog for free on the bandcamp page! Don't hesitate to. It may say "name your price," but that really means "FREE".
I'm happy to announce that I will be releasing a Cassingle
from my dear friends from Milwaukee, Cousins,
in mid-August. The cassettes will be limited to a run of 50 and will
come bound with hand-made books and housed in engraved o-cards. They're
beautiful. If you haven't heard Cousins, check out their Axthoxy
EP. You can stream and download the Cassingle here.
The Ghoul Intentions 7"s are on their way out, so be sure
to pick up a copy soon! The boys are gonna be out around the whole US
through the month of July and into August. Don't miss out on them! Check
out their tour info here.
And if you're interested (which you should be!), they have an LP coming
out on Kind Of
Like Records this week. Go preorder it here!
And lastly, a second pressing of Long Band Name's Josh
Is Dead cassettes will be coming soon. Keep an eye out for more
releases being announced this summer!
Glocca Morra's Ghoul Intentions 7" is nearing completion
now as well! Pre-orders
are up for that. The records should be shipping around mid-April, but
Glocca Morra will hopefully have some copies on their spring tour! Check
out their facebook
page or tumblr
for more details. Boilerman's playing Smash
It Dead Fest this weekend in Boston. It's a really awesome fest to
benefit the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center and a ton of cool bands are
playing and more importantly there are a ton of really awesome workshops
to go to. If you're in the area I strongly urge you to participate.
Oh boy, I'm bad at this. Antilles'
s/t 12" is out! The b-side is totally smooth and flat and looks fucking
beautiful, and the huge inserts turned out well. The Glocca
Morra 7"s are almost done & should be out in time for their
April tour. And The World Is... tapes are nearing completion, too! FINALLY.
Preorders for those tapes are up in the webstore,
and both Glocca Morra and Long
Band Name releases are up on the bandcamp
page. I'm having some issues with the Antilles record, so that's not up
yet. But it will be! In addition, Antilles is getting ready to record
their new full length at the end of the month. It won't be out forever,
but it's going to be fudging awesome. Get real psyched. And be sure to
check out long band name on tour with Deer Leap at the end of March!
