For those not aware, Wardance was a band that existed in Richmond, Va between 1995 and 1997(?) ish, played a ton of fucking shows and really captured an amazing part of sound that this city had back then, probably cuz the band was made up of folks from other awesome RVA bands like Bad Guy Reaction, and Avail.
We feel honored to be able to have played a part in sharing all this with you, and it is amazing to listen to these tracks and hear that energy and political angle the band took, especially amidst the climate today. Enjoy!!
Today we are excited to be releasing the ‘Dark City’ album by the late-90’s Richmond hardcore band, From Earth To Ashes, to all streaming platforms.
FETA consisted of members of older Richmond bands such as Broken Chains of Segregation, Indypendant, and Pre-Skool.
The 7-song album is available streaming now.
Today we are beginning to rerelease some recordings by NYC band, Mimirock!
Mimirock was a punk band from NYC between 1995 and 2005, known for their live show and performances.
The first EP we are releasing for Mimirock, is ‘Uncontrollable‘, a four-song EP, streaming now!
We have been working over the past few weeks to get our artists back in distribution. As of today we have restored the catalogs of 10 of the 21 artists we distribute…
Broken Chains of Segregation
Helen Back & The Str8 Razors
Shitload of Pain
We are working on getting everyone back in distro, and should have them done within the next month or so.
‘Purple‘ is twelve songs of melodic, hardcore (?) punk rock, with lyrics drawing heavily on Gary’s philosophies, a mix of Buddhist philosophy and radical mental health awareness, resulting in a positive but real album that addresses many of the issues and situations we face living day to day lives.
‘Purple’ is available now, streaming everywhere!
TLDR: not closing, actually growing
Over the past few days, a couple friends have reached out to see what could be done with the label. After talking a bit, we came to the conclusion that with some restructuring, new distro, and some new ideas, we could easily bring the label back, and actually make it better.
So as of today, that is what we are doing, with plans on deck to grow it along the same intent, and make it flourish.
First, I owe a lot of this to Kevin Burr… talking with him the past few days, it became blatantly obvious what we need to do. And he gets the purpose of the label, and has some ideas on how to make it even better, so he will be coming on to help make it awesome.
The other person joining us, is my friend Alix Petrie. As one of the most creative motherfuckers i know, her advice and ability to discern value in things has been very enlightening, and make things like ‘duh’ level obvious.
So yeah, fucking stoked!
From the outside, its gonna be similar, but better. From the inside, we putting some structure in to make things smoother, and more robust.
So yeah, Looking forward to this! You should see the catalog return to streaming sites over the next few weeks, and see new things appearing as well!
Much love to you all!
