THE ARTERIES - RESTLESS 12" / CD - 18th March 2013"
ANDREW [at] SPECIALISTSUBJECTRECORDS.CO.UK
New release: Bangers - Dude Trips “Collected Recordings 08-09” LP
Been meaning to release this for a while but it’s only just come to fruition
Collection of Bangers early recordings back on their original format!
Originally released on CD in 2010, ‘Dude Trips’ complies Bangers early vinyl releases including splits with the likes of Break the Habit, The Arteries & OK Pilot. With all the vinyl releases long out of print these songs are back on their original format and conveniently packaged on one LP.
The Arteries’ new ep, Restless is now available to preorder in the shop.
Listen to the opening track ‘Bleed Away’…
The 12” is limited to 666 copies on black vinyl with a satanic as hell etching on the B-side, should look awesome. There’s also the option of a shirt and all preorders get an instant download of the whole record.
Incredibly excited for our next release, a new 6 song EP from Swansea’s Arteries. It’s coming out on the 18th March on one sided 12” and CD. More details and tracks to hear soon.
They’ll be touring in March so put these dates in your diary…
March 8th - Le Pub - Newport March 9th - The Cavern - Exeter March 10th - Cowley Club - Brighton March 11th - The Vic Inn - Derby March 12th - Red House - Sheffield March 13th - Wharf Chambers - Leeds March 14th - TBC - Dundee March 15th - Central - Newcastle March 16th - The Black Heart - London March 17th - Practice Space - Gloucester March 21st - The Exchange - Bristol March 22nd - Edge Of The Wedge - Portsmouth March 23rd - The Stanley - Norwich April 5th - Buffalo - Cardiff April 6th - The Scene - Lincoln
Sam’s incredible debut album is now available to order here. If you haven’t checked any of it out yet you should! Stream the first half on Punknews.org.
Anyone who’s seen Sam Russo before will know what to expect, 10 beautifully bleak ballads. First 50 LP orders will get some exclusive extras including embroidered patch, matchbook and since it’s getting to that time of year a cassette single of Sam’s yuletide lament, “Merry Christmas, Baby I’m Sorry”.
Also now available to preorder is the 2nd pressing of Bangers’ Small Pleasures LP, we ran out of the 1st pressing pretty quick and with plenty of touring coming up it made sense to keep this banger in print.
This time round it’s on 100 clear vinyl / 200 black, so order quick if you want to bag yourself a clear copy.
Also available with a “Small Pleasures” shirt or sweatshirt for those cold months.
Incredibly excited for our next release, debut full length from my favourite East Anglian, Sam Russo. I’ve known Sam for a while now and his music never ceases to amaze me, bleak, haunting ballads from a man who couldn’t give a fuck or perhaps gives a fuck a little too much?
I had the pleasure of touring with him earlier this year and I don’t think I could ever tire of seeing people’s faces change as soon as they realised Sam’s not just “that guy” who plays an acoustic guitar at punk shows, but he’s actually one of the best songwriters you’re likely to see.
And don’t think that’s gone unnoticed; he’s played countless shows with the the likes of Brendan Kelly, Dan Adriano, Dave Hause, released a split with Chuck Ragan and his album’s been picked up by Red Scare in the US for release on CD!
The CD release comes out 30th October (which we will be getting copies of for all you UK / European folks) with our vinyl release coming in the next couple of months.
