By , 7 March, 2014, No Comment

Banquets & Nightmares For A Week – Song Premieres On PureVolume / New Split LP Available For Pre-Order From Black Numbers

• Split LP out 3/18/14 on Black Numbers

——————————————————————————–

The long-awaited split release between Banquets and Nightmares For A Week is now available for Pre-Order from Black Numbers. All pre-orders of the new split LP will come with a free copy of Banquet’s sophomore Self-Titled album on CD. But, if you are looking for vinyl, the 2nd pressing of Banquets’ Self-Titled LP is also available for Pre-Order now.

You can now check out “Matters” from Banquets and “Bleached Blonde” from Nightmares for a Week exclusively on PureVolume.

Additionally, “My Moped Year” from Banquets and “Dead Will Stay” from Nightmares for a Week are currently streaming on Noisey.

Originally concieved for release on another label the split proposed fell by the wayside with the passing time.

Both bands never gave up on the idea and after Banquets recorded several extra songs during their Self-Titled recording sessions, the split was back on again.

Worship This! – Video Premiere on Noisey / Tour dates with Elway

• Tomorrow, I’ll Miss You LP out now on A-F Records

——————————————————————————–

Akron, OH’s Worship This! premieres their “Jen, With 2 N’s” video on Noisey today. The song comes from the band’s 2013 LP,Tomorrow, I’ll Miss You available now on A-F Records.

The video was directed, shot and edited by Ben Hendricks of fellow Akron band, Annabel.

Justin Sane of Anti-Flag had this to say about Worship This!:

“In a laptop production era, its pretty great to come across a band that gives a shit. Worship This! are a band that you want to be friends with. They sound real, sincere, touchable, on a level that I haven’t seen in years. Melodic punk rock in a world where there is very little true melodic punk rock. Tracked live, “Tomorrow, I’ll Miss You” is 4 friends capturing and documenting real life. If you like records that are Copernican, you’re going to want this in your collection.”

Upcoming shows

FEB 20 – Pittsburgh, PA @ Murder Room w/ Elway
FEB 21 – Cleveland, OH @ Now That’s Class w/ Elway

State Lines – Announce Winter Tour Dates / For The Boats LP Available on Tiny Engines

By , 20 December, 2013, No Comment

STATE LINES – Announces Winter Tour / In Support of For The Boats On Tiny Engines

• For The Boats LP out now on Tiny Engines

• Self-Titled 7″ limited 1st pressing copies still available

——————————————————————————–

Long Island, NY’s State Lines are heading out in support of their sophomore LP,For The Boats, released this past Summer on Tiny Engines. You can stream the album in its entirety on Bandcamp.

For The Boats follows up State Lines’ Self-Titled 7″ which was released in the Summer of 2012 on Tiny Engines. Limited 1st pressing copies of the Self-Titled 7″ are still available as well.

Though State Lines has matured since their last Self-Titled EP, For The Boatsshows that they have not lost their emotional intensity. Instead, the energy, once generated by explosive tempos, is reserved for the record’s most touching moments; likewise the charm that made Hoffman Manor so memorable has been swapped by dynamics and momentum. In fact, one might argue that For The Boats is more restless, more intense, rawer, and certainly more real.
