Broadway Calls Toxic Kids Released mid/late-October on our own Banquet Records label (co-released with All For Hope Records in the USA) We're pleased to announce the release of the new BC 12”, “Toxic Kids”. The 6 song 12” was recorded by Jack Shirley (Comadre) at his Atomic Garden Studio and fully captures the angst and energy you've come to expect from the Oregan band. The Banquet copies (limited to 300 for retail) are on "electric blue" transparent vinyl with a heavyweight card jacket and colour insert. "barely a weak moment to speak of" 4/5 - Punktastic.com Banquet Records 12"
Broadway Calls Be All You Can't Be we've still got a few of these knocking about. Give them a good home for 2. The first taste of album two. Two slick and super-catchy tracks that see them push more towards that early 90s classic pop-punk sound with thoughtful lyrics. Both these tracks are absolutely massive. Great band! Side One Dummy 7"

Fireworks Gospel we just found a few go these hidden away. what a cracker. Vinyl Pressing info: First pressing is limited to 500 copies housed in a deluxe gatefold sleeve Banquet Exclusive Colour - Coke Bottle Green (Limited to 200) w/ CD* UK Retail Exclusive Colour - Grey / Clear split (Limited to 300) *just to be clear - CD with the Banquet LP is just the CD itself within the package “What 'Gospel' represents is a how-to manual of the genre, a tour de force that proves no matter the criticisms, doing something well is worth doing. Fireworks have taken the field, shaken it up and, adding their own sincerity and ear for a melody, turned up what may well be many people’s album of the year” - Alter The Press 4.5/5 “Though the formula is the same, this album seems a step up in maturity for the band and with this they have hit their stride and found themselves their very own, very good niche...‘Gospel’ is more instant than their previous release, and there are bursts of pure perfection on this album that you’ll have stuck in your head all summer” - Punktastic.com 4/5 “With pop-punk enjoying something of a revival as of late, Fireworks are repeatedly cited as genre champions by the diehards. ‘Gospel’ won’t do a great deal to change that” - Rock Sound Magazine 7/10 “Gospel, is yet another positive stride for the band as they continue to shed their once tributary flair and morph into an earnest, unique pop-punk outfit...Their improvement has been incremental from record to record, but this continual growth is something to be proud of as they delve deeper into greater depths and exploratory songwriting” - Alternative Press 3.5/5 “Fireworks aren't your typical pop punk band. They don't write music like bands they're grouped with, they don't carry themselves like their peers and they stand for more than most bands in the genre do. On top of that, they've now released one of the best debut full-lengths in recent memory and a more impressive follow-up that's more rock and roll-tinged than anything else. Whether this will be Fireworks' most impressive work or not remains to be seen, but one thing is certain: they've set the bar for everyone else this year” - Absolutepunk.net 9/10 “Fireworks have returned very strong once again. Gospel is a damn good record that has a lot of variety to offer punk rock. These guys aren’t taking the easy way by following the others; they’re making their own stepping stones on the scene” - AMP Magazine “This could well be the soundtrack to your summer. There's even a track called 'Summer'. A done deal then” - Big Cheese Magazine “What 'Gospel' represents is a how-to manual of the genre, a tour de force that proves no matter the criticisms, doing something well is worth doing. Fireworks have taken the field, shaken it up and, adding their own sincerity and ear for a melody, turned up what may well be many people’s album of the year” - TheInterlude.com “Incredibly close to being a perfect album” - Versussleep.net 9.5/10 “Gospel is one album that will go down as one of the best pop-punk albums to come out of this new pop-punk explosion of the past few years. For most, this will be just a great album to merely jam to for years to come, but for some of the younger listeners, this could very well be their generation’s (New Found Glory) Sticks and Stones” - Mindequalsblown.net 4.5/5 Banquet Records CD | LP
