Banquet has a UK retail exclusive of the blue / green / white starburst variant.

Sometimes labels and distros supply us different LP variants than what was expected. If you're not after one particular variant, order "any variant LP" (if available) to speed up your order.

The debut album from one of the UKs most talked about bands.  Released on US label Run For Cover (Man Overboard, The Wonder Years, Tigers Jaw etc). For fans of 90's emo, Title Fight and Small Brown Bike. Excellent album, excellent UK post-hardcore, excellent!

Nestled away in the UK’s quiet, picturesque east coast town of Ipswich, the lads in Basement are conflicted between the comfort of the beautiful familiar and the allure of escape. This duality pervades the band's existence. As frontman Andrew Fisher’s gravelly, Lifetime-esque yowl skips and stretches over driving rhythms and poignant guitar melodies, it’s clear Basement expertly walk the line between contrasts of heartrending emo and gruff post-hardcore. Whether working through a slow, Seaweed-styled mid-tempo burn or pounding out driving punk, Basement has a quiet layer of jagged desperation weaving their songs together under the smooth melodic surface. Much like a coming of age, the songs are at once confident and poised while toiling inside and bursting at the seams.


the new colourway of the debut @basementuk record is here. Looks a beaut
