i quite enjoyed him meeting up with his Dad when he was gurning off his face like a loon….i’m sure there are plenty plenty more. Another recent one was him saying “Crush the universe” onstage, with no tinge of irony.
i'm from leeds so i tend to see a lot of fast bands such as closure, bonestorm, mouth, grazes, torn apart, valhalla pacifists, mob rules, sick-o etc. i was just wondering if you'd heard/seen any of these bands as fast stuff isn't as popular down south?
i love all those bands! im a huge fan! i love fast hardcore/powerviolence - i have hundreds of 7”s of the stuff….i’ve even contemplated starting a tape label just for that sort of music….i dont understand why the south sucks so hard on this sort of stuff (apart from (rip) Never Again)
So it has been a while since i’ve done a bit of a general update, so here goes….
- Kerouac ‘Cold and Distant, Not Loving’ 10” and shirt went up today for preorder. Get on it. 300 10”s made! Released officially Dec 13th.
- Next Monday ‘Happy Holy Roar 4’ goes up for preorder. The packaging is pretty crazy and new again, there are alot of tape colours and the musical content is unreal. There will be digital download for the first time as well. All details will be revealed next Monday - but believe me this project will be ALOT of fun.
- Rolo Tomassi ‘Hysterics’ repress has been pushed back a week to Nov 22nd i’m afraid!
- Touche Amore records should ship late November/Early December….sorry for being vague, that’s as good as we can say right now. You will receive mid-december at the VERY VERY latest!
- Hang The Bastard ‘Hellfire Reign’ is totally locked in for Dec 6th release!
- Finally, in terms of releases this year, we should have Baptist EPs out and for sale before Christmas too. Probably Dec 13th. If you haven’t checked them out, do so - http://www.myspace.com/bastardbaptists
Elsewhere there will be a new colour run of Holy Roar sweaters/jumpers (whatever you call them!) onsale either tomorrow or Wednesday I think.
We had a bit of a sort out with our shirts and found the following which are up in the store now -
1 gallops shirt in xl
1 bastions shirt in large
1 brutality will prevail ‘root…’ shirt in small
6 Never Again shirts in Small/Medium/Large
Also there are some releases we are running really low on, unless we are being idiots and have lost stuff -
We’ll Die Smiling EP - 3 copies left
Antares EP - 5 copies left
Last Witness ‘give up’ 7” - 2 copies left
Lonewolves - 4 copies left, and then one copy with a slight defect…
We also found 2 Guilty Parents EPs and 1 Rolo Tomassi CDEP!
All of this is in our store - http://holyroarrecords.com/shop.php
FINALLY we now handle mailorder for EyesofSound records. All their releases are in our store, check it out! I’ve also got a bunch of other distro titles from other labels to get up into the store and they should be up over the next day or two.
