Petal Magic Gone LP is on half red / half bone coloured vinyl, includes a download code. The second full length album from the indie-emo songwriter Petal, she plays emotionally charged indie-pop with a rocky-garagey feel with infectious hooks. For fans of Waxahatchee, Tigers Jaw and Jimmy Eat World. Magic Gone is the physical and sonic representation of me fighting for my right not only to survive but live all while coming to terms with encroaching adulthood. I was a closeted queer person struggling with chronic mental health disorders; terrified that if I tried to deal with these two major issues in my life I would lose everyone and everything I loved. Coming out was the beginning of a long and continuing process of self-actualization, of taking a hard look at myself and the problems I had and how I could fix them. This record is the result of being the most honest I have ever been in my life, and the constant battle of overcoming the thought that, “maybe if I were just someone else completely, everything would be better.” Magic Gone is about letting go of the anger induced by all the paranoia, anxiety, guilt and pain, and embracing the magic of your own endurance and hoping for the best.

Citizen / Turnover Split The adored split 7" from Citizen and Turnover is finally back in stock. Released back in 2012 and prior to both of the bands' debut albums. Michigan's Citizen and Virginia Beach's Turnover each follow up acclaimed debut EPs by contributing two new songs apiece to this impressive split 7". Both bands' first recordings for Run For Cover, this split marks growth and maturity for each band as they transition from up-and-coming locals to established national artists. Citizen opens the split with two crunchy post-hardcore emo songs. The band effortlessly blurs lines from crashing Foo Fighters-esque drums and and loud guitars to quiet, emotive twinkling breaks akin to peers Basement and Title Fight but with their own midwestern personality. Turnover opens up side B with rumbling, jumpy toms and a sad, shimmering guitar line before soaring vocals dart in, tugging at the heartstrings and begging for a singalong. Relatable lyrics coupled with infectious vocal melodies make Turnover one of the catchiest bands making punk music. Run For Cover 7"

Creative Adult Fear Of Life Second album from California's Creative Adult. 80's influenced garare-punk for fans of Ceremony, DIIV and Creepoid ‘Fear of Life’ finds the band peeling back some of their chaotic, fuzzed out psychdelia in favor of a newfound sense of melody. Taking cues from The Cure and Oasis, jangly and melodic guitar lines weave their way through smoky, atmospheric west coast post punk. Recorded with Jack Shirley at his Atomic Garden studio, Fear of Life is Creative Adult at its best with just the right amount of polish to help guide through the hypnotic layers of sonic haze.

Loner Chic Year Of The Goth Expected 26th February Loner Chic are a varied bunch with an indie-garage-rock sound that twists and shifts between the likes of The Lemonheads, Weezer, Joyce Manor and The Front Bottoms! Drawing members and influences from disparate corners of the Connecticut underground music scene, Loner Chic blends knowing, sardonic lyrics with a dynamic and various musical framework. On Year of the Goth, their Broken World Media debut LP, power pop riffs intersect with postmodern anxiety in an urgent, distinctly contemporary mélange that remains nevertheless referent to the indie rock tradition of Loner Chic's predecessors. Blown out, shout- along choruses buttress elegant guitar work, while the lyrics include references to everything from The Lemonheads to Drake to Virgil’s Aeneid. Catchy and brusque without sacrificing severity, Year of the Goth offers party punk for the literary set. Run For Cover LP Pre-Order
Teen Suicide I will be my own hell because there is a devil inside my body Expected 11th December Reissue of Teen Suicide's only proper album which only came out in alimited run in 2012 Run For Cover Records will be reissuing my own hell, with remastered audio, expanded artwork and 8 never-before-issued bonus tracks. Across the album’s 10 songs, the band displays a knack for different sounds and styles. Intimate, keyboard driven tracks like ‘cop graveyard’ and ‘grim reaper’ sit beside more energetic full-band outings like ‘dead bird skeleton and ‘give me back to the sky’, the latter even adding an evocative viola, piano and choral arrangement to it’s chaotic center. It’s to the band’s credit that their more outré moments feel necessary, not distracting. What becomes clear upon listening to ‘my own hell’ is that beneath the dreamy haze & noisy apathy of teen suicide’s recordings exist ernest, extremely well-written pop songs that reflect and express the uncertainty and desperation of reality.
