Soul Glo Songs To Yeet At The Sun The new EP from the acclaimed thrash-punkers Soul Glo. All things considered, in a year where it feels as though quite literally anything could happen at any given moment, a record like the one that Soul Glo shorthandledly refers to as Yeet, one that features a violent and compelling sonic fusion that only they are capable of, is deeply necessary to times in which we currently find ourselves. In times where we are simply trying to survive from one minute to the next, one day to the next, it feels good in its own way, less lonely perhaps, to have music that reflects that uncertainty and fear.

Touche Amore Lament European indies exclusive LP is on 'orange crush' coloured vinyl. The highly anticipated new record from the incredible post-hardcore outfit Touche Amore, following on from 2016's critically acclaimed Stage Four. More details to follow. “Limelight” sounds tremendous, strained and furious and colossal. Bolm rages about getting older and embracing it, while Manchester Orchestra’s Andy Hull comes in to sing add gorgeous melodic vocals to the bridge. It’s a stirring and resonant piece of music. - Stereogum Epitaph CD | LP
Trash Talk Eyes & Nines (Hassle 15th Anniversary Edition) LP is on 'half black / half crystal clear' vinyl. Hand-numbered. To celebrate Hassle Records 15th Anniversary as a label, they present this reissue of Eyes & Nines from Trash Talk! Total chaos from this US hardcore punk band! We became obsessed with Trash Talk when they played SXSW in 2008. We followed them all over Austin for three days catching five, maybe six, frenzied shows in that time - the best of which happened at two in the morning, on a footbridge across the river. A vocal PA, 500 kids, and sheer attitude. At one point during the set, a Converse rep turned up. That episode ended up with a deluge of Converse shoes floating down the river… Hassle Records LP
Cancer Bats Birthing The Giant (Hassle 15th Anniversary Edition) Double LP is on 'half chocolate / half crystal clear' vinyl. Hand-numbered. To celebrate Hassle Records 15th Anniversary as a label, they present this reissue of this classic record from the hardcore-punkers Cancer Bats. We first heard this Canadian band in the car driving up to Download in June 2005. A perfect way to be introduced to them. It was the metal riff provided by Scott that hooked us in and the bands overall infectious energy. Fronted by the nicest man in punk, Liam Cormier, this debut record was an excellent start for a band that surely deserve the award for Hardest Working Punk Band On The Planet... were such a thing to ever exist.

Rolo Tomassi Hysterics // Cosmology (Hassle 15th Anniversary Edition) LPs are on 'half blue / half crystal clear' vinyl. Hand-numbered. To celebrate Hassle Records 15th Anniversary as a label, they present this double-packed reissue of Hysterics and Cosmology from the genre-defying Rolo Tomassi, packaged together for the first time. Rolo Tomassi’s sound is such that probably operate in that area of music which comes with a multitude of descriptors - progressive/experimental/post-hardcore/math-core/call-it-what-you-will. Regardless, we decided to combine two of their releases for a very limited mind-blowing set. It seemed fitting for a band that provided a totally different sound for Hassle to explore. Complex playing and time signatures courtesy of all members, topped off by Eva Spence’s fearsome vocal provide a unique and challenging listening experience, which we love and embrace.

Petrol Girls Cut & Stitch // The Future Is Dark (Hassle 15th Anniversary Edition) LP is on 'half green / half crystal clear' vinyl. Hand-numbered. To celebrate Hassle Records 15th Anniversary as a label, they present a vinyl reissue of the awesome hardcore outfit Petrol Girls' latest album Cut & Stitch, accompanied with their The Future Is Dark EP, packaged together for the first time. We got a call from a friend on site at Rebellion festival having just seen them, saying they were the most exciting band he’d seen since Nirvana and telling us we simply had to sign them. After seeing them for the first time ourselves at 2000Trees festival, we soon followed up from there. When we visited the band at Peter Miles Middle Farm studio during the recording of this debut album, we knew it was going to be something special. They played the first track to us, The Sound, and said, “ We’re trying to do something a bit different.” They didn’t disappoint. In a very good way. This band are as much rooted in activism as they are in music, tackling social justice issues around gender, race and mental health in their uncompromising brand of feminist post-hardcore punk. In every aspect of what they do they do not compromise. Perfect for Hassle. We don’t give a fuck but we do really care. Hassle Records LP

Their previous release Ultimate Aggression , which combined the EPs Ultimate Disease  and First State Aggression , received raves from Revolver ["teaches a master class in musical self-immolation, setting rough-and-tumble hardcore alight by way of scorching death-metal theatrics"], New Noise ["feels like a feral beast that’s ready to rip your neck off"], and more.

Code Orange Underneath The highly anticipated new album from the awesome Code Orange, following on from their groundbreaking 2017 record Forever which saw them nominated for a Grammy for Best Metal Performance. Offering a new dose of their extreme, trippy and pummelling brand of metal / hardcore with industrial textures. Production has been handled by former collaborator Will Yip but now with the help of Nick Raskluinecz (Deftones / Foo Fighters). “Underneath is about facing the duality in ourselves as individuals and as a society in an overcrowded, overexposed, all-consuming digital nirvana,” says vocalist and drummer Jami Morgan. “Everyone has a voice and no-one’s seems to matter… plummet down the rabbit hole of your deepest fears, anxieties, and regrets to confront the monster that has been building underneath.” Roadrunner CD | LP
