Happy Halloween weekend everyone out there! It's time to unveil the debut Why Bother? LP in full, and what an album it is! Fittingly enough, our thirteenth vinyl release of 2021. Whether you're of the punk, hardcore, synthpunk, or post-punk persuasion - there is something timeless, honest, and engaging about this band and album. Limited orange vinyl available while it lasts! Stay tuned for more from WB? in 2022.
Be back next Friday with another announcement (Cowboys fans take note!) and will also be on the road with Sweeping Promises on a good chunk of their tour that starts this weekend!
Just printed up some official North American editions of these new fanzines, edited by the one and only DX in Melbourne, Australia.
Distort #58: A history of Class War fanzine by Bryony Beynon. DX interviews Oily Boys, Perspex, and Prostate. Photos and an interview with Sam Ryser on the amazing fanclub paint maker shirts he's been drawing lately.
Life Stinks #6: Kriminal Kinks: Writing on The Kinks, Scott Walker, class war, football, roast beef, Steve Goodman, Yanka Dyagileva and polio.
SWEEPING PROMISES TOUR CONTINUES!
The Hunger for a Way Out tour starts back up at Levitation in Austin this Saturday and hits the East coast and Midwest over the next couple weeks. I'll be at quite a few of these gigs, hope to see some of y'all out there! Check out some recent live footage via Cvlt Nation.
