Defeater Defeater European indies exclusive LP is oxblood/milky clear coloured vinyl. Limited to 1000, with 300 for the UK. Regular LP is on black vinyl. The fifth full length album from the incredible Massachusetts post-hardcore band Defeater. Production duties have been handled by Will Yip, we know this will be a super great record of pummelling and devastating post-hardcore. A must-get-into band if you're into the likes of Touche Amore, La Dispute, More Than Life, Departures or Title Fight. Yet it’s been a long journey to where the band is now. Years of touring took their toll on the friends that make up the current line-up of Derek Archambault (vocals), Jake Woodruff (guitar), Adam Crowe (guitar), Mike Poulin (bass) and Joe Longobardi (drums). Health, substance abuse issues, and ejecting a long-time member had made a touring hiatus necessary. After a few months at home, working and decompressing, the fire to write a new record caught everyone in a major way. The result of time off and the band’s renewed energy, Defeater has created their most organic batch of songs yet. And in Defeater fashion, the instrumentation is complimented by a narrative approach. Archambault explores his own "Glass family" (an homage to the J.D. Salinger characters) from new perspectives. Epitaph CD | LP
Touche Amore Deflector / Green Hold tight for our pre-order, we'll try get this one in stock. For now, just click the Notify me button. A new 7" single from the phenonimal post-hardcore group Touche Amore, on the A-side is new song Deflector with 2018's digital-release-only Green on the B-side. Touché Amoré recorded “Deflector” with notorious producer Ross Robinson. Robinson is mostly known for working with nü-metal stars like Limp Bizkit and Korn, but he’s also produced classic hardcore-adjacent albums from bands like At The Drive-In and the Blood Brothers. And “Deflector” sounds huge, its wiry clangor slowing down and making room for some big riffs and a big chorus. In the emotionally intense lyrics, Bolm describes himself as “a last responder to my own self-interest.” 1. Deflector 2. Green Epitaph
Funeral For A Friend Final Hours At Hammersmith First pressing is on a limited transparent blue colourway. The iconic live album from the outstanding and highly influential post-hardcore / alt-rock group Funeral For A Friend. This is the first time this record is being released on vinyl, recorded at the final UK gig of the Hours Tour on 4th June 2006 at Hammersmith Palais. After the venues demolition in 2012, this performance is widely regarded as one of the best live shows to have taken place inside the walls. The studio album received critical acclaim across the board with NME saying ‘All Hail the Kings of Extremo’ and Metal Temple saying that it was ‘One of the best releases… in a long time’. The live performance only adds to the brilliance of the studio album with the band reacting to the hyper energy of the crowd and creating a memorable performance, which now after being pressed onto a unique, transparent blue vinyl 2LP is truly unforgettable.

Thrice Beggars (10th Anniversary) LP is on tri-colour vinyl, includes a bonus 7". We're pretty sure the colours are packaged at random. The tenth anniversary edition of Beggars from Thrice, pressed on tri-striped coloured vinyl and includes a bonus 7" with the tracks Red Telephone and Answered (first time on vinyl for both). I'm really excited about this record. Beggars is more visceral and more raw - both in the songwriting and in the overall sound. It moves with a different energy than any of our past records. It was born out of us playing together in a room, almost as a backlash to the giant headgame that was The Alchemy Index. Vagrant 7" | LP
Alexisonfire Familiar Drugs [7"] The phenomenal post-hardcore legends Alexisonfire are back and have brought a new ferocious single in the form of Familiar Drugs with them. We're super excited for this and we can't wait to hear more. Alexisonfire rose up out of the Southern Ontario underground in late 2001 like some monstrous and utterly captivating car-accident-in-progress. Hitting the ground with an immediate full head of steam, Dallas Green, George Pettit, Wade MacNeil, Chris Steele and Jordan Hastings have not only impressed the critics with their sour/sweet approach to performance and writing, but are recognized for their stellar musicianship, and the palpably pent-up tightness of the band live.

Loma Prieta Continuum / Fate The excellent new 7" from post-hardcore outfit Loma Prieta, fans of Thursday, Touche Amore and Fugazi should check this out. "Continuum b/w Fate" is a new two song single from Loma Prieta, recorded by engineer Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Oathbreaker). A-side "Continuum" is artistic editorial in the self-damning that many face on a day to day basis. Playing as an examination of the perpetual motion that contemporary society demands of each one of us. Musically it glides infectiously with new depth and fuzzed out control. B-side "Fate" uses Pixies-esque lightness to veil the weight of its message before erupting into musical chaos. Here they disguise disgust with melody while singing "Drugs and God the same distractions / Lay on the dirty floor and stare at the ceiling, like it was a planetarium dome". Expanding their unmistakeable screamo approach into powerful Fugazi-like territory. Deathwish Inc. 7"
Maybeshewill I Was Here For a Moment, Then I Was Gone The third full length album from Leicester's genre-bending band Maybeshewill, mixing up indie, post-hardcore and mathy / progressive / post-rock influences. ...Maybeshewill prove once more that they're worthy of the hyperbole that's been heaped on them over the years, for "I Was Here For A Moment, Then I Was Gone" is a beautiful and engrossing experience..."

Nathan Gray Feral Hymns The upcoming solo album from Nathan Gray, known as the vocalist of the post-hardcore legends Boy Sets Fire. Stripping the songs down to the bare essentials of his voice and acoustics, these tunes are no less emotive and electrifying. Echoes is a celebration of death and rebirth - a dark hymn, in which our scars become less of a blemish, and more a reminder of what we must do to survive. A reminder to no longer allow life to happen to us, but to enforce upon all the powers of death our right to exist, grow, and flourish. - Nathan Gray on Echoes. End Hits CD | LP
