Update: Phantom Glue and Choke up OUT NOW, Ramming Speed US/Euro tours
Phantom Glue – s/t CD, 12″ OUT NOW
What sort of beast has 128 teeth, 40 fingers and 3 tube heads? Damn right, the slab of heavy-as-shit stoner metal known as Phantom Glue’s self titled LP is finally available on both digipack CD and TWO colors of thick vinyl (Red with a white splatter and green with a white splatter)! Guitar player Matt Oates is currently finishing up art for the insert and as soon as that’s ready, all pre-orders begin shipping. All orders that come through the TDB store will include a free color poster, so party with us and have no regrets. If you don’t know already, this was recorded by the masterful Kurt Ballou and he did an incredible job capturing the tooth rattling intensity laid down by this co-ed troupe of Bostonians.
Ramming Speed – Fests, US Fall tour, Euro winter w/ MUNICIPAL WASTE / SAVIORS, Limited T-shirt Package
For those that might not have heard, we (Ramming Speed) were robbed in Italy in July and lost quite a bit of money (among other things). There is a “benefit” package available that will include a limited t-shirt, our new tape, and other garbage we can whip together. For more information regarding our limited edition merchandise in exchange for helping us out of crushing debt, click here: http://www.tdbrecords.com/rammingspeed/?page_id=49
That aside, we just got home a little over a week ago from Europe and for the most part it was a total success. The shows were fantastic and included everything from sweaty basements to open air festivals.
Moving on, we have two fests coming up in the states. This Sunday August 22nd is the Chronic Youth 1st Anniversary Party with Saviours, Priestess and many many more. For info on that check out www.Chronicyouth.com. We are also excited to announce that we’ll be touring the US this fall in order to make it out to the first ever Tank Crimes Brain Squeeze with Municipal Waste, Ghoul, Toxic Holocaust, Vitamin X, ANS, Votsek, Cannabis Corpse and others! That tour is going to be around three weeks and a tentative routing will be posted soon. After that we’re back to Europe in December with Municipal Waste and Saviours for two to three weeks of long hair celebration and punished livers. The first round of dates have been announced for that tour here: http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com/blabbermouth.net/news.aspx?mode=Article&newsitemID=144539
Choke Up – s/t CD EP OUT NOW
The road couldn’t harden these cuties and now that they’ve finished up their first full US tour with friends The Effort. We are proud to announce the official release of Choke Up‘s self titled CD EP. Seven tracks of mature, epic and emotive hardcore, the disc drips with sincerity. Recommend for fans of Against Me, Small Brown Bike and sweaty nights with good friends in crowded basements. This will go on sale next week on the TDB web store and is available at the bands upcoming shows.
