  1. took some digging, but here's the trailer: http://crankstrap.com/fsb/
  2. thanks so much for the kind words. glad you guys are digging what we're doing. it's been so much fun, and it's crazy to think how fast we've grown in just one year of shooting. our first shoot was at the end of february in 2016, and our youtube channel didn't go live until late june, so we've really been hustling. it's really insane looking back at some of our first videos and seeing how far we've come since then. the eye ball kit was a back line kit at Fest this past year. it was built by Madison Drum Makers https://www.facebook.com/MadisonDrumMakers/ we have it on loan until they're done building a custom kit for Mike/the Rock Room. that one should be done within the next month, at which point the eyeball kit will be available for sale through us. if you're interested in it, let me know and i'll put you in touch with mike! unfortunately, the fireside doc is on the back burner for the time being. somebody else released one within the last year and took the wind from my sails. it was disheartening, especially the way it went down, but i have too much good footage to not do anything with it. i also haven't really been in a financial place to pursue doing it this past year, but i'm starting to get back to a place where that might be feasible again, and it is something i do want to see come to fruition. it is nice having lots of the main players come in to the rock room, but with how tight the scheduling is when they're actually in, there just wouldn't be time to do the rock room interview AND a fireside interview AND the live songs. but it's a nice introduction for a lot of us, and it definitely legitimizes me for the times when i do/will approach them to be a part of the documentary. the goal for me by the end of 2017 is to just have the website up and running. from there, i'll try to work more on the film when time/money allows.
  3. if you guys want a real youtube channel to follow, you can follow mine: Live From The Rock Room we are a live music channel that is hosted in Westmont, Illinois in Mike Felumlee's basement. he is the original (and current!) drummer of Smoking Popes, and was the drummer of Alkaline Trio for the From Here To Infirmary album. we have bands come in a record a few songs, and sometimes we'll do interviews with them, too. new videos get posted to the channel every Tuesday and Thursday. we've had some amazing bands in so far, and have some really, really big shit planned for the rest of 2017 and beyond. here are a couple examples of videos we've done. if you're into them, like our page on facebook and subscribe to the youtube channel! if you have any questions about anything, hit me up here or on facebook. if you're a touring band and want to play the Rock Room next time you're in chicago, get at us on our contact form on the website. www.livefromtherockroom.com
  4. this has always, always been a dream of mine. please, for the love of god, invest in a good camera before you leave so you can take a million amazing pictures. and keep a journal/blog of some kind to be able to remember the little details (where/what you ate, interactions you have with people, etc.) 5 years from now. i'm super jealous of you taking this leap. good luck, and safe travels!
  5. hi yu! hi everybody! i'm still alive but very rarely around here anymore. add me on the facebooks if you want to stay in touch! www.facebook.com/danwallach7 www.facebook.com/artisticintegrityrecords

  8. hi hello happy new year. i'm not usually one for telling secrets, but let's just say, hypothetically, that since i'm about to go to work and won't be home at midnight (or for a very long while after midnight), that there's a very good chance you can go hear/buy/download the entire comp right this very second. i'm not promising anything. but there's a very, very good chance. https://artisticintegrityrecords.bandcamp.com/album/air-036-an-impression-of-an-original-a-tribute-to-against-me
  9. the next song to be premiered is by The Flips from Chicago. they covered "Borne On The FM Waves Of The Heart" and they fucking killed it. it's streaming exclusively via Jaded In Chicago at the following link: http://www.jadedinchicago.com/2016/12/the-flips-borne-on-the-fm-waves-of-the-heart-exclusive/ if you want to pre-order the whole comp, you can do that here: https://artisticintegrityrecords.bandcamp.com/album/air-036-an-impression-of-an-original-a-tribute-to-against-me
  10. for the time being, no. unfortunately, it's just not in the budget right now to add another few grand to this project. it would have to be a double LP at least, and probably even a triple LP to get it sounding REALLY good. the total running time of the comp is 1:19:53. add the cost of doing vinyl to the high cost of licensing everything properly and legally, and it just isn't very feasible for a small label like me. i wish i could, it's just not realistic. yep. all fake names. this is just one big, clever ruse.
  11. <3 the next song to be released from the comp is "T. S. R. (This Shit Rules)" by The Skulx (members of Foxy Shazam and Cadaver Dogs), and it's streaming thanks to our friends at New Noise Magazine. if you're curious to hear it before January 1, you can listen to it here: http://newnoisemagazine.com/skulx-cover-tsr-shit-rules/
  12. thanks dude! i'm not saying you'll definitely be able to hear that song tomorrow, but if you kept your ears open for some.... new noise(s magazine)... around, idk, like 12 pm eastern time... there's a chance you'll be able to hear it. idk. maybe.
  13. last year's compilation was a tribute to Motown, and was recently named the 15th best covers compilation to be released in 2016 by Cover Me (here's the article with the top 20 list). if you want to listen to that comp, it's available here: https://artisticintegrityrecords.bandcamp.com/album/air-028-not-the-same-old-songs-a-tribute-to-motown
  14. on january 1, Artistic Integrity Records will be releasing our 4th annual New Year's Day covers comp. this year's installment is all Against Me! covers, and proceeds from the sale of the album will be donated to Gender Is Over (www.genderisover.com), a clothing company/charity which Laura Jane Grace herself has worked with over the past few years, and whose mission is to provide support to trans & gender nonconforming people, as well as assisting organizations with the same goal. punknews has made the official announcement of the complete track listing for the album, which can be seen here: https://www.punknews.org/article/62650/streams-26-band-against-me-tribute-album-announced-punknews-exclusive there you can also stream one of the tracks from the album, "Mediocrity Gets You Pears (The Shaker)" by Cadaver Dogs. you can pre-order the comp at the AIR bandcamp page starting right this very second, but it will be officially released 1/1/17. https://artisticintegrityrecords.bandcamp.com/album/air-036-an-impression-of-an-original-a-tribute-to-against-me if you want to follow Artistic Integrity Records to stay updated with all news regarding this and other releases, here are all of our social media accounts: www.facebook.com/artisticintegrityrecords www.twitter.com/artisticintrecs www.instagram.com/artisticintegrityrecords
  15. i'm really proud to be a part of a new podcast and youtube series called Live From The Rock Room. my friends Mike Felumlee (of Alkaline Trio/Smoking Popes fame), his wife Stephanie Wysocki, his friend from high school Ken Nowka, and i want to share what we're doing with you. we've only been at it for a couple months, but we've already gotten some amazing bands and artists in, and TONS of great press. here's what we do: we'll have a band come in to Mike and Stephanie's house in Westmont, Illinois and record 3-5 songs in the practice space that Mike built in their basement. Ken runs the video gear (and edits everything we shot later), MIke records the audio (and mixes it later), and i take still photos. when the bands are done playing, i sit down with them and we do an interview. sometimes those interviews are 15 minutes. sometimes they're an hour. we upload videos of the individual songs to the LFTRR youtube page https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcGzmfGcuPqQXpuTaLKUSXA (^^ go subscribe if you haven't already!!) and we take the audio from the full session and make one long podcast out of the whole thing that you can find on iTunes by searching Live From The Rock Room. it's been a really incredible experience to watch this thing grow from an idea Mike shared with me 6 months ago into what it is today. and it's really exciting to look ahead and see what amazing things are in store later this summer, and down the road for this project. we've had bands like the Smoking Popes, Shawn Harris from The Matches, Mikey Erg, and Lifted Bells in, and we're definitely going to keep having bigger, well-known bands. but we also take pride in the fact that we have this unique platform to expose you all to new bands and new music from all over the country that you might not otherwise have had a chance to hear, and we're absolutely going to do our best to give those smaller bands the exposure we feel they deserve. if you haven't liked the facebook page yet, the link is https://www.facebook.com/Livefromtherockroom you should also subscribe to the youtube channel, where we upload 2 new videos each week. please take 43 seconds out of your day and do both of those things for us. we're working really hard to make this something special, and hopefully that is clear. if you have any questions about anything, or suggestions for us, feel free to get in touch. thanks for reading, watching, and listening. -dan / LFTRR here are a couple examples of some of the individual videos we've done:
