  1. Because we like throwing money away, we're putting out a limited to 20 hi-fi-stereo 12" lathe cut of a non-active band's non-active side project. That's right, the sophomore album from Chicago's PINK GUYS is out TODAY on all of your favorite streaming services. We started recording this in 2014 and finally finished it in 2018. Better late than never, right? Anyhow, you can pre-order the lathe cut NOW. It's gonna be a one-sided clear 12" that will sound and look fantastic. Full color art. Full lyrics and root chords in the liner notes so you can play along. Limited to just 20 copies and selling for less than you can buy a run of the mill 12" at your local record store (or hell, even from most record labels these days). No, we are not related to that PINK GUY who gets all the hits on YouTube. And we were around first, so fuck that guy. This is a pop/punk side project from members of Pink Eyes, Engines, Towers, Stillwell, Peter and Craig, etc. etc. Not some dude in a pink suit. 13 songs in 19 minutes. Songs about our cats, our practice space circa 2014, our pure hatred of tonic water (we had a song about how much we love seltzer on our first album), our friends, a nude painting we found in the garbage, etc. If you like pop, punk, or pop punk, maybe you'll like it? I dunno. Stream/buy here (or find it on Spotify, YouTube, etc. etc.): https://forgeagainrecords.bandcamp.com/album/1471 OR https://pinkguys.bandcamp.com/album/1471
  2. FAR-022 DAKOTA/DAKOTA - Shoot in the Dark+ LP (2018 reissue) Hey, I hate money, so I decided to reissue this discography LP for the band Dakota/Dakota from Chicago. They broke up 15 years ago. Members went on to form way more famous bands like Russian Circles, Bloodiest, RLYR, Lasers and Fast and Shit, JOB, etc. etc. Instrumental indie/math rock that has since been mutated into the emo revival. Only these guys never bothered with any of the pop punk stuff and just wanked the whole time. So if you like wanky instrumental music, give it a listen. We did it up real nice - random colored vinyl, fancy spot gloss jackets, and even a handful of WAX MAGE vinyl copies. Stream it all here: https://forgeagainrecords.bandcamp.com/album/shoot-in-the-dark

    The Smoking Popes

    Bumping this ancient thread. Destination Failure is being reissued by Side One Dummy as a 2xLP with bonus tracks, as per the interview I just listened to with Josh and Eli Caterer on WXRT. Early 2018.

    The Vinyl Deals Thread (non-Amazon)

    20% off ANYTHING (ALL single LPs are below $10) if you use the code CAPITALISM at http://forgeagainrecords.bandcamp.com including the BRAND NEW STNNNG / Child Bite split and LPs from Engines, Salvation, Lasers and Fast and Shit!, Destroy This Place, Pink Eyes, Old Gods, etc. Take advantage of our stupidity through the end of November.
  5. I believe 100 each. Both records rule though so you should JUMP on this.
  6. Anybody who has clicked into this thread has probably heard one or both of these bands by now so I won't bother with a lengthy description of what they sound like. We did a split LP for the two bands. STNNNG broke up while it was in production, so it features their final recordings (done just before the LP that came out earlier this year). CB recorded their songs (with Wes fuckin' Borland) before their lineup change this summer. So in many ways this is a swan song for both bands (though CB will chug along with new members). First (and probably only) pressing limited to 533 copies (241 clear w/black, 241 purple w/blue, 51 Wax Mage purple/blue nebula) and features a multi-color silkscreened A-side with art from Shawn Knight. Above picture is the "digital" cover - I think it's just a part of the screen art. Once they get screened next weekend, I'll post those pics too. Pre-orders will start shipping November 13. You should also check out our other two releases from 2017 - full length LPs from SALVATION and ENGINES. https://forgeagainrecords.bandcamp.com/album/stnnng-child-bite

    PO: STNNNG / Child Bite split LP

    I am gonna bump one final time on the off chance it catches somebody's eye that wouldn't have seen it otherwise. These are moving very quickly.

    PO: STNNNG / Child Bite split LP

    Oh hey I guess these turned out ok. Clear w/black (still available): Purple w/blue (still available): Wax Mage purple/blue nebula (sold out!):
  9. Ohhhhhh snap. A new release from Forge Again Records. Two in one year? Wow, make that THREE because we have another one coming in the fall. Be nice about this one though, dudes, since I am also IN this band. Details below! Any questions? Shoot! ENGINES is a five piece noisy indie/punk rock band from Chicago. Originally conceived as a solo project for Philadelphia-based songwriter Craig Woods (TOWERS, ELDER, PETER AND CRAIG, TWO PIECE FEST) under the moniker HOT BAGELS, Woods moved to Chicago in 2014 and soon recruited fellow east coast transplants Lee Zickwolf (RIBBONHEAD, COSTANZA) and Jeff Twietmeyer (ALMOST ARGYLE) and Chicago native Justin Wexler (STILLWELL, FORGE AGAIN RECORDS) as permanent fixtures of the band. After two years of performing and writing as a four piece, they decided to add a full-time vocalist to the mix. Emily Jancetic (HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE, LONGDISTANCERUNNER), once lovingly described as the "Kelly Clarkson of post-hardcore" by All Music Guide, joined in 2016. And thus ENGINES was born. ENGINES plays a brand of indie/punk rock that is is loud but not lacking in dynamics. Noisy, but beautiful, Chaotic, but calm. Dissonant, yet melodic. Obsolete is the complete expression of all of these elements spread out over twelve songs that stand alone but also flow into one another over the course of thirty-six minutes. Recorded and mixed by Neil Strauch at Shirk Studios (with additional recordings by Pete Grossman and Andy Nelson at Bricktop as well as Craig Woods at Kildare and his home). Mastered by Carl Saff, with amazing artwork by Shawn Knight. This is a split release between Forge Again Records, Be Happy Records, Middle Man Records, Killer Tofu Records, and 4UBRO Records. First press LP is limited to 280 copies on mixed random colored vinyl and 20 Wax Mage copies TBD. Wax Mage copies are super limited and as of writing this, there are only 3 available to the public right now (2 sold already, band, labels, and crucial industry insiders are probably snagging the other 15). Pre-orders will begin shipping in early August. I of course prefer you pre-order it from Forge Again, but whatever, get it any way you can. All the labels are slinging copies. Stream some of the tracks now and pre-order here: http://forgeagainrecords.bandcamp/com/album/obsolete Upcoming ENGINES shows: 08.05 Chicago, IL @ Quenchers 08.12 Chicago, IL @ Secret Record Release BBQ Early Show (in Logan, near Township, but if you really want the address hit me up - BYO stuff to BBQ, booze, show is FREE) 08.17 Cleveland, OH @ Now That's Class (tentative) 08.18 Philadelphia, PA @ The Pharmacy 08.19 Richmond, VA @ TBD 08.20 South Bend, IN @ TBD
  10. Dumb release alert: I play in a Nirvana deep cut cover band with a female singer called The End of Music. We play non-album tracks only. We don't advertise as a Nirvana cover band. We don't play more than 20-25 minutes, and we don't put any Nirvana covers online, nor will we ever record any. I grew up listening to these and other stupid songs on bootleg cassettes and "import" CDs, so I decided it would be a good idea to just play these songs live, since most people have never heard them. However, we're stupid, and decided to record 2 covers of covers for a hi-fi stereo lathe cut 7" that is now available. "Turnaround" aka Turn Around (Devo) and "Oh, Me" (Meat Puppets) are the tracks. I'll admit, these two cuts aren't the deepest of the deep, as they were both on major label releases (Incesticide and Unplugged, respectively), but they were the two that we covered best, I suppose. Maybe we'll try a Wipers song next year. Or KISS. We'll see! Spin this monstrosity here: https://theendofmusicmusic.bandcamp.com/album/turnaround-b-w-oh-me We're playing Milwaukee tonight at Cactus Club as part of Triple Eye Industries Fest. Tons of awesome bands. Super cheap. You should probably go if you live nearby. https://www.facebook.com/events/170073890183174/

    The Mondo Records Thread - Show Posts Anyway?

    Uh, yeah, this movie and soundtrack absolutely rule. The DuJour bonus 7" is hilarious. I presume it's just because those are really the only non-Josie songs on the soundtrack. They're doing a screening/live performance with Kay Hanley on vocals and presumably a ridiculously good backing band too. I am flying to LA for this. https://www.acehotel.com/calendar/losangeles/josie-and-pussycats-record-release-party
  12. I am putting out a new record by the band SALVATION from Chicago. It is very good. The record turned out very cool. The pre-order is open now and it'll ship in a couple weeks. One random order will get a TEST PRESSING included as a bonus (cut-off for that is next Friday, February 10th at midnight CST). Get on it! SALVATION - Sore Loser LP Blending together elements of noise rock, punk, and grunge, Chicago’s SALVATION has cultivated a rare sound that is injected with strikingly inventive vocals and instrumentation. With their 2017 Forge Again Records nine-song debut LP Sore Loser, SALVATION further refines the sound found on their 2015 Cold Slither Tapes release Royal Fucks. Like their previous effort, Sore Loser was recorded completely live, showcasing the band’s raw fervor and painstaking attention to performance perfection and detail. The vocals are raw and commanding, seeming to simultaneously invoke both aggression and agony. The rhythm section remains the strong, sludgy backbone of the album, driving each song forward as the vocals ebb, flow, and meander throughout. Sore Loser was recorded by Joe Gac at Kildare Studios and mastered by Carl Saff with cover art by Smith Smith. The first pressing of the LP is limited to just 311 (jah bless) copies on random colored vinyl. The picture above is merely a sample of some of the crazy colors in there. They all look and sound great, and we can't guarantee you'll get any particular color, but we'll send the craziest and coolest looking ones out to the earliest orders. Oh and one random order will get a TEST PRESSING! The official release date is March 31, 2017 but pre-orders will start shipping in mid-February. You can hear the first track from the album "True Romance" and pre-order the record NOW on Bandcamp! Stream/Download/Pre-order:https://forgeagainrecords.bandcamp.com/album/sore-loser

  16. Thanks! Always good to hear it! Hope you dig it. Full album stream will happen soon! Also Salvation is going on tour in like 2 weeks. I will compile those dates and get em up on here for y'all. Headed to the east coast and back, so hopefully some of you live out there and can check them out because they rule live.
  17. Yeah, the DL code that was packaged with the LP should have let you DL the whole thing. The pre-order thing only lets you have those tracks until the rest is released shortly.
