CAPSULE tape + BRAINWORMS demo + massive Online Store updates!!

March 03, 2006

Today is a good day. Not only have we put in a massive order for lots of new t-shirts, we also received some killer new releases both for the label and close friends. We’re most excited to present the first release in our new cassette series from Florida’s powerhouse trio CAPSULE! This thing turned out incredible, with three newly recorded tracks on side A and their entire seven song demo on the B side; it’s roughly 25 minutes of furious jams! The new material is especially incredible and this serves as a fine prelude to their upcoming album we’ll be releasing later on this summer.

In the meantime, a mere 200 of these were made, all with white ink on blue cassettes and a full color 4″ x 9″ j-card insert. All in all, we couldn’t really be happier with how our first cassette release turned out and can’t wait for you to see/hear this thing yourself! The band has them on the road with them (they leave tomorrow (!), here are the dates) and we’re selling them for $6 postage paid in the US right now in our Online Store.

For those who haven’t yet heard the glories that are CAPSULE, this trio is comprised of three dudes who have done time in Tyranny Of Shaw and Tunes For Bears, but take it to the next level with a triple-vocal yelled/sung assault over blistering tunes with monstrously heavy tunage. It’s really quite unique stuff and is hard to directly compare to anyone else out there, so we highly encourage you to check out some sample MP3s either here or here.

The other main addition of note is the self-released demo CD-R by Richmond’s own BRAINWORMS. These dudes are comprised of former and current Stop It, Ultra Dolphins and Are You Fucking Serious members, and seriously bring some style and intensity back into the mix. This seven track band-made CD-R has a massive and immaculate hand-made booklet with photos and lyrics, and was all recorded live in the studio (at what turned into an impromptu show), so all of the passion and force shines right through. Comparisons to Rites of Spring and Fugazi are probably inevitable, but they definitely take that early/mid-90’s post/hardcore/indie style to the next level.

We’re selling this massive thing for $7 postage paid, but if they’re coming through your town please pick it up directly from them, as we only have a limited amount! ! They’re heading out tomorrow for a ten-day tour w/ Red Wizard and you can hear songs by both bands here. Brainworms doesn’t have a Myspace page (yet), so here are some possibly out-of-date tour dates:

* March 3rd: Harrisonburg, VA
* March 4th: Asheville, NC
* March 5th: Atlanta, GA
* March 6th: Athens, GA or Pensacola, FL
* March 7th: Gainesville, FL
* March 8th: St Augustine, FL
* March 9th: Savannah, GA
* March 10th: Charleston, SC
* March 11th: Greenville, NC
