Crown of Nothing, the stunning new Direct Hit album, doesn’t come out for a couple of weeks. Lucky for you, we’ve got something to satiate you. The third single, “Different Universe,” is premiering over on our YouTube channel! Directed by Adam Santiago & Derek Shreves, the duo pull back the curtain on the macrocosm of Crown of Nothing. Is it the beginning, or the end for these characters? You’ll just have to ponder it until you can absorb the album in its entirety. Fear not, vocalist Nick Woods sheds a little light on some of the ambiguity below. Stay tuned…as the journey has only begun.
“Back when we were just starting to write this album, a friend of ours was insane enough to write a script for a feature-length movie fleshing our Crown Of Nothing’s plot and characters. This is a trailer for that film, set to the lead track on our new album. If you want the whole story, Walker Dubois took it to an even crazier length, and turned that same script into the comic book you can buy along with the new record. We’re proud of all the work they did, and hope it pulls you into the world we tried to create with our music this time around.”
Hi-Standard is The Gift that just keeps on giving this year. We’re taking pre-orders for a special, one-time pressing of The Gift right now! If you didn’t score the limited color vinyl version we released last month, don’t worry. Now’s your chance to get a picture disc version, featuring art by Frank Kozik! So, pick up a copy of what’s sure to be the best looking vinyl in your collection. Heck…why not grab a new Hi-Standard shirt while you’re at it? Orders will ship in January.
Me First And The Gimme Gimmes are bringing Christmas to you early! They have a grip of shows on the West Coast with fellow labelmates, Mean Jeans, and the dark under-lords of Austin, Drakulas. Don’t sleep on these tickets, as the shows will sell out! Tickets on sale, now!
We’ve been hard at work, mining the trenches to uncover all the lost and loved songs from LEFTÖVER CRACK’s career. That’s no small task, considering their 20+ years of cranking out some of the most iconic crust/punk/ska ever created. Well, after years of tracking down mislaid tapes, long-out-of-print 7”s, and hidden recordings, we are thrilled to reveal that on November 30th, LEFTÖVER LEFTÖVER CRACK will see the light of day! Packed with 30 tracks of B-sides and rarities, you’ll also enjoy two songs that were previously unreleased on digital. Trust us, this is an excellent addition to the LEFTÖVER CRACK cannon, and is available today for pre-order!
LOC will be heading out on an epic tour this November with an incredible lineup. Check out the dates with Negative Approach, Crazy And The Brains, and more, right here
