Teenage Cenobite EP announced / Feel It 10 year anniversay bash in April!
LABEL NEWS: TEENAGE CENOBITE unveil new Live EP, out 2/28
The fortieth release on Feel It just so happens to be an impromptu new live cassette from Richmond's own TEENAGE CENOBITE. This one JUST came across my desk and really left an impression, so with the quick turnaround time on cassettes, we're squeezing it in with the upcoming batch of Feel It releases that drop on 2/28. We also added TEENAGE CENOBITE to the Feel It 10th anniversary bash (keep reading for more on that) !
TEENAGE CENOBITE "Live" cassette + digital
Richmond's TEENAGE CENOBITE have risen from humble beginnings as a bedroom recording project into a wild, noisy synthpunk machine. Originally the solo project of Hank Allen, 2019's debut EP, "Rules to Break" became a YouTube overnight sensation, racking up nearly 40,000 views via the Harakiri Diat channel. "Rules to Break" established TEENAGE CENOBITE's style of grungy synthpunk noisewave, both diverse and uncompromising. Since that time, Allen has assembled a full live band, enlisting the rhythm section of fellow Richmond psych-punks SLUMP, amongst others. "Live" is the first group CENOBITE recording, including a few reworked hits from "Rules to Break", along with several new tracks. There's a certain direct and ugly tinge to these recordings that hangs in the same league of noisy damage as the early AmRep catalog run through a contemporary punk/hardcore sensibility - all tightly executed and committed live to eight track tape. Time to get in on the ground floor with TEENAGE CENOBITE as they ascend into the synth-drenched cosmos.

Finally, we just announced the lineup for the Feel It 10th anniversary bash. Happening April 17+18 in Richmond, VA! This thing is going to be a blast. Many of the best active bands on Feel It are playing and I've organized 3 gigs over 2 days. The Saturday shows are being held at venues literally across the street from each other, so this will be a nice, non-festival type atmosphere with packed shows, great bands, and plenty of cold beverages. Hope to see y'all there! Spread the word!
