Ladies and gentlemen, we are thrilled to announce that we’ve signed San Francisco’s toyGuitar for their very first album! toyGuitar’s singer and guitarist (and good friend) Jack Dalrymple needs no introduction, and his new band caught our attention last year with their addictive EP on Adeline Records that even Rolling Stone was smart enough to cover. Loaded with catchy hooks, driving guitars and Jack’s soulful singing, a toyGuitar record is true joy to listen to. The band is entering JingleTown Recording TODAY to begin work on their full-length with producer Chris Dugan. You can track their progress by following toyGuitar on Instagram and Twitter!
Double 7" release day! Up first, Mad Caddies keep things rolling following Dirty Rice —their first album in seven years—with a 7” release of that album’s first single, Brand New Scar! Not only are they ‘keeping it going’ via new releases, they’re hitting the road in Europe starting next week!
Up next we have a 7" EP from San Francisco’s own Get Dead! Bygones is the perfect companion to a sing along to while drinking with your buddies. Or alone, we don’t judge! Featuring four killer songs including the brand new hit song and title track “Bygones,” and their stellar NUFAN cover, “Pre-medicated Murder,” originally available on The Songs of Tony Sly: A Tribute. Pick up the 7" now while there are still a few color copies left.
Today, NOFX decided to reinvent themselves and have met with Janessa Slater (media coach to the stars) to get them on the fast track to success. Check out the video below to see what changes you can expect from NOFX before you see them out on tour!
As we mentioned, we’re releasing The Dirty Nil’s new 7", Cinnamon b/w Guided by Vices, on August 19th. Today, you can hear the a-side over at Vice/Noisey! Then, check them out live and pre-order your copy today!
Our love of wax continues! Today we are thrilled to announce we’ll be releasing the new Dirty Nil 7". Cinnamon b/w Guided By Vices comes out on August 19th and contains two songs layering feral garage rock with uneasy pop hooks, all assembled and reassembled to make your mind melt into fractured pieces of chaos. If you haven’t seen them live, now is your chance, and you’ll see just why Fat Mike jumped at the chance to release this single. You’ll have to wait until next week to hear one of the new songs, but in the meantime go get a filthy taste of what The Dirty Nil are all about. And then get out to one of their U.S. tour dates in July! Read what the band has to say about their two new songs below:
“Cinnamon” and “Guided by Vices” are about chasing death and fearing the opposite sex. We look foreword to playing them and other songs of smiling discontent to all the girls and boys on our 2014 tour of America. Dates below
