  3. Forgot to post an update to this thread. Here are our two most recent updates, including distro highlights. http://manindeclinerecords.com/2014/10/october-2014-update/ http://manindeclinerecords.com/2014/08/monthlyupdate/ New Releases: MID020: Damaged Head "Tunnel Vision" LP MID021: Stun Event 7" (ex-OUT COLD) MID012: The Nukes "Fascist Perverts EP" 7" MID010: Burning Kitchen "Many Wonder About The Meaning Of Life (1993 - 2000)" 2xLP MID019: Cleansing Wave "Crude EP" 3-sided 7" Coming Soon: MID022: No More Art "Sorrows of Youth" LP MID023: ИO​/​/​/​sé "Lower Berth" LP MID024: Agent Attitude "Deranged Realities" LP MID018: Burning Kitchen "Det Långtande Djuret" LP MID025: Red Dons / No More Art split 7" http://store.manindeclinerecords.com https://soundcloud.com/man-in-decline-records/sets http://manindeclinerecords.bandcamp.com https://www.facebook.com/manindeclinerecords
  4. OCTOBER LABEL UPDATE HERE: http://manindeclinerecords.com/2014/10/october-2014-update/ -- http://manindeclinerecords.com http://store.manindeclinerecords.com https://soundcloud.com/man-in-decline-records/sets http://manindeclinerecords.bandcamp.com https://www.facebook.com/manindeclinerecords Hello and welcome to the October update for Man In Decline Records. We have three new releases this time around, so let’s get right to it. NEW RELEASES DAMAGED HEAD "TUNNEL VISION" LP Following their one-sided, screen-printed 12″ EP, DAMAGED HEAD quickly returned to the Communichaos Media Clay Station to record this new full-length with Kenko (Burning Kitchen, Meanwhile, Dischange). This LP picks right back up where they finished on the EP: fast hardcore that is equally influenced by the US classics and Scandinavian legends like TOTALITÄR. The music for this record was recorded in just under an hour (!!!) and it’s exactly what you would expect from a band comprised of members of HERATYS, INSTITUTION, AGENT ATTITUDE, NITAD, and VREDESMORD. Listen for yourself: [bandcamp]track=3697030322[/bandcamp] Tunnel Vision is available on red, clear, and black. See the release page for details on pressing numbers, etc. GET TUNNEL VISION HERE: http://store.manindeclinerecords.com STUN EVENT “S/T” 7” STUN EVENT was started by former OUT COLD members, Kevin Mertens and John Evicci, after their recent collaboration on OUT COLD’s posthumous release: A Heated Display. Kevin Mertins had been the original singer for OUT COLD and he rejoined the band on vocals in order to help them complete their final recordings after the tragic passing of the band’s primary songwriter: Mark Sheehan. After their collaboration on A Heated Display, John and Kevin decided to start a new project, and they included John’s brother, Fred (another OUT COLD alumnus). These six songs are the first recording from the band. Musically, STUN EVENT provides a fresh take on a genre that can be predictably derivative. The familiar elements are there but they’re executed in such a way that the maturity of the musicianship and songwriting comes through. There are nods to early punk influences from disparate and somewhat unexpected sources: like THE FIX or NEGATIVE APPROACH playing “Paranoid Time” but the end result is all their own. Listen for yourself: [bandcamp]track=2814528902[/bandcamp] Stun Event is available on red and black. See the release page for details on pressing numbers, etc. GET STUN EVENT HERE: http://store.manindeclinerecords.com THE NUKES “FASCIST PERVERTS EP” 7” The Nukes play hardcore punk that sounds like it was conceived in that glorious period between 1978 and 1981 when punk was speeding up but hardcore had not fully developed as a distinct sound all its own—think: THE NUBS (SF), THIS IS BOSTON, NOT LA-era GANG GREEN AND F.U.’s, ANGRY SAMOANS and newer bands like CAREER SUICIDE. On Fascist Perverts, the band tears through 6 songs in less than 7 minutes and the no-frills approach works to punishing effect. The Nukes are a band with tons of promise and we hope this is the first of many recordings by the band so they can take their place as the next addition in a long list of venerated CHICAGO bands. [bandcamp]track=2289308849[/bandcamp] GET THE NUKES HERE: http://store.manindeclinerecords.com UPCOMING RELEASES (COMING IN NOVEMBER) NO MORE ART “SORROWS OF YOUTH” LP NO MORE ART finally delivers a long-awaited full-length after multiple releases, including a split 7″ with DOOM TOWN on Man In Decline, multiple singles, and a demo. The new LP, entitled “Sorrows of Youth” contains 8 songs that build on the formula of their earlier releases: surf-drenched early punk with female lead vocals and lots of melody. Think DANGERHOUSE records, The ADOLESCENTS, and MASSHYSTERI. Guitarist, Will Kinser, was a member of RED DONS and that influence comes through as well. Listen below for a sample of what to expect. This is, by far, their strongest material to date and we’re honored to be releasing it. [bandcamp]track=3773331391[/bandcamp]

[bandcamp]track=3773331391[/bandcamp] LABEL NEWS AGENT ATTITUDE are well into their European tour in support of their upcoming record called, “Deranged Realities”. As we said in the last update, they will be coming to the U.S. in late-winter/early spring 2015 and we’ll post the U.S. dates to the “Tour” section of our website when they’re available. The color vinyl repress of OBLIVIONATION was rejected but we’re told we’ll have copies soon. In the meantime, check out the rare glimpse of them playing live via the video we posted on our social media accounts. BURNING KITCHEN has delivered their newest record to us and we’re sending it off to the plant any day now. Look for this monster of a record to be released in winter 2015. Catch them live, along with DAMAGED HEAD and AGENT ATTITUDE, in Uppsala, Sweden between November 7-9th at Fun In The U.A. We’ll also be premiering a new video with a song form the upcoming full-length next week early next week. Speaking of DAMAGED HEAD, they’ll be opening for OFF! in Stockholm next weekend. After that, they plan to lay low to prepare for a recording with Kenko that will be used for a split with Diagnosis? Bastard! (members of Nitad and Victims). This one should be out sometime this winter. The ИO​/​/​/​sé “LOWER BERTH” LP is moving along and should be available through us and 1859 Records in early December. Look for a song premiere in the newsletter next month. DISSEKERAD is writing for a second LP and will return to the studio in January to record with Kenko at Communichaos Media Clay Station (noticing a theme here?). I don’t know about you but we cannot wait to hear what’s next. DISTRO UPDATE We’re gearing up for our annual sale. Our distro is a bit bloated and we need to move some stuff to make room for new releases. Keep an eye out for details really soon.
  6. CLEANSING WAVE “CRUDE EP” three-sided 7″ Also available for preorder is the Cleansing Wave "Crude EP" three-sided 7". How the hell do you make a three-sided 7"? Well, we collaborated with our good friend Adam at Telegraph Mastering and included an extra song that plays from the inside out on the "A/B" side. This allowed us to fit the entire 5-song session on one 7" in a way where it still sounds great. The "CRUDE EP" is the latest release by the Massachusetts punk quartet and it serves as a follow-up to a previously released demo, a "s/t" 7" EP, and a series of split releases, including a split flexi with G.A.S.H, a split cassette with TINITUS, and a split 7" with San Francisco's MIDNITE BRAIN. Cleansing Wave puts on a ripping live show full of reverb-drenched vocals and all-out punk attack and this recording captures that experience. Limited color vinyl available. Listen here: Stream the full record on our soundcloud, band camp, or on our website. http://store.manindeclinerecords.com http://manindeclinerecords.bandcamp.com https://www.facebook.com/manindeclinerecords OUT NOW: MID010: BURNING KITCHEN “Many Wonder About the Meaning of Life… (1993-2000)” 2xLP Discography $13.00 MID019: CLEANSING WAVE “Crude EP” 7” $3.50 MID015: DAMAGED HEAD "S/T EP" one-sided, screened 12" $8.00 MID016: VANNA INGET "Ingen Botten" LP $8.50 MID017: VANNA INGET "Allvar" LP $8.50 MID013: OBLIVIONATION "Cult of Culture EP" 7" $3.50 MID014: DISSEKERAD "s/t" LP $8.00 MID011: LOST LANDS "Body of Habit" 7" $3.50 MID009: RAW NERVES "Futile Efforts" LP $8.00 MID008: NO MORE ART/ DOOM TOWN split 7" $3.00 MID007: ARCTIC FLOWERS / SPECTRES split 7" $3.35 MID006: SARABANTE "Ερμαια των Kαιρών" b/w "Under the Shadows” 7" $3.75 MID005: CONCRETE CROSS "s/t" LP $7.00 MID003: RAW NERVES / ACTS OF SEDITION split 7" $3.25 MID002: SEAS WILL RISE "Disease Is Our Refrain" LP $7.00 MID001: COME ON DIE YOUNG "s/t" 7" $3.25 UP NEXT MID020: DAMAGED HEAD “Tunnel Vision” LP MID021: STUN EVENT “s/t” 7” (ex-OUT COLD) MID012: THE NUKES "Fascist Perverts EP" 7" MID018: BURNING KITCHEN “Det Längtande Djuret” LP MID022: NO MORE ART “The Sorrows of Youth” LP MID023: ИO​/​/​/​sé “Lower Berth” LP MID024: AGENT ATTITUDE “Deranged Realities” LP MID025: RED DONS / NO MORE ART split 7”
  7. BURNING KITCHEN “MANY WONDER ABOUT THE MEANING OF LIFE… (1993-2000)" 2xLP Discography We are beyond excited to announce that the BURNING KITCHEN 2xLP discography is up for preorder. Records are in stock and ready to go, we just need a bit of time to get a few things in order before they ship. So, expect your preorder to ship no later than AUGUST 22nd and it’s likely it will ship sooner. First things first: Burning Kitchen is one of our favorite bands and we are proud to be sharing this material with the world. For those of you who are unfamiliar, we’ve been working on this release for over 2 years and many rad people have been involved in making it happen, the least of which are Kenko at Communichaos Media Clay Station (mixing and mastering), Mike Champagne (design and layout), Lydia Crumbley (cover art), and Adam Gonsalves (lacquer cutting wizardry). The release compiles nearly all of Burning Kitchen's material from the 90′s and includes 8 UNRELEASED SONGS from 1998 that were meant for release but never saw their day (i.e., these are not throwaway tracks that were unearthed from a boom box recording of a practice). The 2xLP also includes a wide spine jacket, 100 copies on clear vinyl, and a 12 page booklet with pics, flyers, a short history of the band, etc, and as always you will receive an immediate download of the record upon purchase.

  8. DISTRO UPDATE Things have been a little quiet on the distro side because we’ve been traveling a ton this summer and we've also been focused on some non-label stuff. However, we have been stocking new titles here and there and we have restocked a number of things that we’d run out of earlier in the spring. That said, definitely keep an eye on the distro in the coming weeks and months because we will be getting waves of new releases coming in and we'll be focusing on keeping up with new records as they come out. It's summer, so we've been listening to lots of VENOM P STINGER. We've also been listening to the LONG KNIFE “Possessed” 7”. As expected, they pick back up where they left off on "Wilderness". If you don’t know, Long Knife receives the POISON IDEA comparison quite a bit, and it’s not unfounded (the singer sounds A LOT like Jerry A), but they’re not just aping PI riffs and recycling PI songs; they are enough of their own entity that the songs stand on their own. We caught them in Portland recently and man they can deliver live. The level of musicianship and songwriting in that band is definitely impressive. Also on heavy rotation is the ARCTIC FLOWERS “Weaver” LP. If you know the AF catalog, this one falls a bit closer to "Reveries" and the early 7”s but still maintains some of the post-punk and goth elements they were flirting with on Procession. This one is bound to be on lots of top ten lists this year and it will certainly be on ours. BLACKWATER just released the DISARRAY discography on LP. This LP, unlike many reissues, sounds fantastic because they did it right and sourced it from the original tapes. If you’re unfamiliar with DISARRAY, they were active in the Sendai, JAPAN hardcore scene from 1982 through 1986. Like most other JAPANESE HARDCORE from this era, they released things in very low numbers and tracking down all the releases can get very expensive. This LP rips from start to finish: very much in the Discharge and Burning Spirits vein and executed as well as any of the other bands we’ve all come to adore. FEATURED DISTRO ITEMS Venom P Stinger - "Walking About" b/w "26mg" 7" Goddammit if the summer heat doesn't make me wanna lay waste to everything in my surroundings. I get agitated. I feel self-destructive. Unhinged. Venom P Stinger is the perfect complement to this feeling and this 7" single is the perfect two song, one-two punch. And the lyrics! "<em>They've got the car. They've got the house. They've got the keys to my door, I can't get out. </em><em>They've got a game where I'm the mouse, while they're beating my brains in and smashing my face around. There's gonna be a day when I'll be walking about while they're sitting at home. Wasting my time. I'M COMING HOME, YOUR'S NOT MINE!</em>" If that isn't a perfect punk song... Here's a proper write up, since we couldn't say it any better: "<span style="color: #000000;">Bone-rattling Aussie punk shots from a pre-Dirty Three Mick Turner and Jim White with feral singer Dugald McKenzie and bass player, Alan Secher-Jensen. Venom P. Stinger attacked in a modified, somewhat streamlined hardcore punk style, with Mick’s burnt-and-twisted guitar tone setting them apart. Also unique was Jim White’s drumming, which appeared to be born of a drum roll that grows and grows until it has eclipsed the entire kit, played with casual aplomb while never sparing the rod to any aimed-for surface. Meanwhile, bassist Alan Secher-Jensen nailed these loosely divergent styles together with nice heavy root notes." VIEW ALL THREE VENOM P STINGER RELEASES WE HAVE IN STOCK HERE ORDER WALKING ABOUT HERE Panic "13" LP This Dutch masterpiece is in league with the early IVY GREEN, RAXOLA, HUBBLE BUBBLE, and THE PACK records. Panic's debut release from 1978, simply titled '13' was reissued by Sing Sing, likely because of the hefty price tag that it took to own an original. <span style="color: #000000;">The album was originally released on red vinyl by Universe and then again later by Ariola on classic black. The reissue also comes on black vinyl, but it comes in a gatefold with a Big Peter poster [the same one that's on the cover up there] Really though, this record’s a gem and worth scooping. As vulgar as The Sex Pistols but more rock and roll and unique sounding than a lot of bands around that time. ORDER HERE V/A "This is Boston, Not L.A." Every scene has it’s own classic compilation record and, in our opinion, this is the best document of a hardcore punk scene in it's infancy. This comp culled together the best and brightest of the early Boston punk and hardcore scene. Nearly all the venerated Boston bands are represented here: The Freeze, F.U.’s, Gang Green, Jerry’s Kids, The Prolietariat, The Decadance, and The Groinoids. In total, this LP has 30 tracks and every single one is a ripper. These are nice too; you get a full reproduction of the original cover and insert. Classic stuff here. ORDER HERE Long Knife - "Possession" 7" Great follow up 7" to the killer LP on Feral Ward. Four new tracks of explosive punk rock that is hard to not compare to 'Kings of Punk' thru 'Feel the Darkness' Poison Idea. Straight up hc filled with nihilistic anger and dark personal lyrics. This four piece stand on their own and have been laying waste to Portland--they're devastating both on record and live. They've been on the East Coast recently and they're following that up with a North American tour in the fall w/ Forward from Japan. ORDER HERE [/b]Arctic Flowers - "Weaver" LP[/b] After last year's excellent "Procession" EP, an EP that showcased the Arctic Flowers' talent for combining the tradition of anarcho/peace punk with a postpunk sensibility, the new "Weaver" LP continues in much the same vein. Just a great mid-tempo punk rock LP that, in true Arctic Flowers fashion, blurs the boundaries between classic punk, postpunk, and early gothic rock. The long-running DIY background of the band's members imparts to the songs an urgency one is not likely to find in the more disingenuous bands trying to hop on the recent goth-punk bandwagon. Weaver is simply an excellent LP. ORDER HERE Wanuy - "Demo" Cassette Demo cassette from this new band out of Peru featuring members of DHK. If you like DHK you'll definitely be into this as well as it has similarly perfect raw production and a simple, straightforward, and catchy take on the classic d-beat sound. ORDER HERE Disarray - "Discography" LP The complete recordings of Japanese punks Disarray. All 24 tracks on this disc are from the official source. From 1982 - 86 Disarray shook the Sendai hard core scene! This LP compiles their 1984 Flexi EP (ADK Records), full '85 EP (Chicken Shit Records) and both self released Cassettes!! Many years in the making and well worth the wait, for fans of Discharge and 80's Japanese punk/hc!!!!! Comes with an 11x22 fold out of rare band photos and more. ORDER HERE Gang Green "Preschool" LP "Pre-school" collects all the studio recordings by this legendary Boston hardcore band between 1982 and 1985, including their 1982 first demo, their 1984 "Sold Out" 7", the 1985 "PMRC Sucks" 12 " EP, and 1985 "Skate to Hell" 7". Say what you want about this band as they went on, but the output in the beginning is as good as any early hardcore band, and this LP compiles all the best stuff. ORDER HERE Allvaret "Tänk på döden" LP Originally released on Erste Theke Tonträger in Germany, this is the US press (complete with new art) for the band's US tour. 330 pressed on black (along with 75 test pressings that were available - and quickly sold out - on their US tour). Swedish outfit Allvaret emerged from a fertile musical background to deliver some totally off the hook KBD punk with tunes that will stick in your head after just one spin. The guitar sounds so Scandinavian! Think MASSHYSTERI, THE VICIOUS, and VÅNNA INGET. The driving rhythm section, with the harmonic drum and bass parts, reminds of some kind of early UK street punk, without sounding stupidly Oi! But the most important part is the awesome voice of Sushila, with perfectly matching Swedish lyrics to top things off and emphasize the band's own character. Members of Vånna Inget. Comes with a download code. ORDER HERE Casanovas In Heat - "Belvidere" b/w "Destiny St." 7" Casanovas In Heat brings together members of Boston punk bands Bloodkrow Butcher, Male Nurses, and Subclinix, but the sound is nothing like any of those bands. Casanovas In Heat plays punk/power pop in the vein of late 70s Boston punk (THE REAL KIDS, TAXI, THE NERVOUS EATERS), as well as a smattering of influences ranging from the Killed By Death and Power Pearls comps, as well as classic bands like the Nerves, the Orbits, and Generation X. This single is a tremendous step forward for this band, as they contribute what are by far their best songs to-date. ORDER HERE DISTRO RESTOCKS No Statik - "Unity and Fragmentation" LP Demonbrother - "Beyond The Veil" 12" S.H.I.T - "Collective Unconsciousness" 7" Iron Lung - "Cold Storage II" Cassette Warthog - "Prison" 7" Lowest Form - "Negative Ecstasy" LP Estranged, The - "s/t" LP Sonic Avenues - "Mistakes" LP Autistic Youth - "Nonage" LP Neighborhood Brats - "Total Dementia" 7" Radioactivity - "s/t" LP Koszmar - "Jeniec Wojenny" LP Masses - "Horde Mentality" 7" Vånna Inget - "Jag Ska Fly Tills Hittar Hem" 7" Misled Youth - "s/t" 7" Selfish - "Life Has No Vacant Time" LP Criminal Damage - "Call of Death" LP Gas Rag - "Beats Off" LP Gas Rag - "Beats Off" LP (EURO PRESS) Crusades - "The Sun is Down and the Night is Riding In" Cassette Marked Men - "Ghosts" Cassette Marked Men - "On The Outside" Cassette Marked Men - "Fix My Brain" Cassette Marked Men - "s/t" Cassette Idi Amin and the Amputees "Disco Bitch" 7" Generacion Suicida - "Con La Muerte A Tu Lado" LP Skemäta - "Demo" Cassette Narcoman - "Demo" Cassette Coke Bust - "Confined" LP Night Birds - "Born To Die In Suburbia" LP Cottaging - "Mise En Abyme" 7"

We’ll be using this space to start posting monthly updates on releases, a summary of important events (e.g., new release announcements), and updates to the distro. We’ll also use this space to keep you up to date on tours and other relevant information concerning bands on the label. So, let’s get to it. NEW RELEASES BURNING KITCHEN “MANY WONDER ABOUT THE MEANING OF LIFE… (1993-2000)" 2xLP Discography We are beyond excited to announce that the BURNING KITCHEN 2xLP discography is up for preorder. Records are in stock and ready to go, we just need a bit of time to get a few things in order before they ship. So, expect your preorder to ship no later than AUGUST 22nd and it’s likely it will ship sooner. First things first: Burning Kitchen is one of our favorite bands and we are proud to be sharing this material with the world. For those of you who are unfamiliar, we’ve been working on this release for over 2 years and many rad people have been involved in making it happen, the least of which are Kenko at Communichaos Media Clay Station (mixing and mastering), Mike Champagne (design and layout), Lydia Crumbley (cover art), and Adam Gonsalves (lacquer cutting wizardry). The release compiles nearly all of Burning Kitchen's material from the 90′s and includes 8 UNRELEASED SONGS from 1998 that were meant for release but never saw their day (i.e., these are not throwaway tracks that were unearthed from a boom box recording of a practice). The 2xLP also includes a wide spine jacket, 100 copies on clear vinyl, and a 12 page booklet with pics, flyers, a short history of the band, etc, and as always you will receive an immediate download of the record upon purchase. Here’s one of the unreleased tracks. You can also stream the full record our bandcamp: [bandcamp]track=874790938[/bandcamp] PREORDER HERE CLEANSING WAVE “CRUDE EP” three-sided 7″ Also available for preorder is the Cleansing Wave "Crude EP" three-sided 7". How the hell do you make a three-sided 7"? Well, we collaborated with our good friend Adam at Telegraph Mastering and included an extra song that plays from the inside out on the "A/B" side. This allowed us to fit the entire 5-song session on one 7" in a way where it still sounds great. The "CRUDE EP" is the latest release by the Massachusetts punk quartet and it serves as a follow-up to a previously released demo, a "s/t" 7" EP, and a series of split releases, including a split flexi with G.A.S.H, a split cassette with TINITUS, and a split 7" with San Francisco's MIDNITE BRAIN. Cleansing Wave puts on a ripping live show full of reverb-drenched vocals and all-out punk attack and this recording captures that experience. Limited color vinyl available. Listen here: [bandcamp]track=293805215[/bandcamp] PREORDER CRUDE HERE Cleaning Wave is currently on tour with their friends Tinnutus. If you live in the midwest or on the east coast, catch them at one of these shows: August 9th: Cleveland, OH at Guide to Kulchur August 11th: Milwaukee, WI at Quarters August 12th: Carbondale, IL at The Lost Cross August 13th: Columbus, OH at Café Bourbon August 14th: Pittsburgh, PA at Jimmy's House August 15th: Philadelphia, PA at Half Moon Café UPCOMING RELEASES (COMING IN SEPTEMBER) DAMAGED HEAD "TUNNEL VISION" LP Following their 12" EP (EU 7" version on Adult Crash), DAMAGED HEAD quickly returned to the Communichaos Media Clay Station to record this new full-length with Kenko. This LP picks right back up where they finished: fast hardcore that is equally influenced by the US classics and Scandinavian legends like TOTALITÄR. The music for this record was recorded in just under an hour (!!!) and the music is exactly what you would expect from a band comprised of members of HERATYS, INSTITUTION, AGENT ATTITUDE, NITAD, and VREDESMORD. Listen for yourself: [bandcamp]track=3697030322[/bandcamp] We already have the vinyl, so once covers and inserts are ready to go, we'll be launching this one pretty quickly. We'll have 50 copies on clear and 50 copies on red for those of you who collect color and, like all other MID releases, you'll also get an immediate download of the record when you buy the vinyl. STUN EVENT “S/T” 7” Anyone who loves OUT COLD like we do, knows that they were one of a few bands playing traditional hardcore punk in the dark years when people were going crazy for utter shit like Lagwagon and Mustard Plug. So, when we got the chance to work with ex-OUT COLD drummer, John Evicci, on the OBLIVIONATION 7”, we were beyond excited. Then out of the blue, John wrote us last winter asking if we wanted to release his new band STUN EVENT. When he explained that it was three ex-members of Out Cold, we got a little giddy. Then he sent the tracks and… well, listen for yourself: [bandcamp]track=2814528902[/bandcamp] Here’s the short version of the story: Kevin Mertins had been the original singer for OUT COLD and he rejoined the band on vocals in order to help them complete their final recordings (A Heated Display) after the tragic passing of the band's primary songwriter: Mark Sheehan. After their collaboration on A Heated Display, John and Kevin decided to start a new project, and they included John's brother, Fred (another OUT COLD alumnus). These six songs are the first recording from the band. Musically, STUN EVENT provides a fresh take on a genre that can be predictably derivative. The familiar elements are there but they're executed in such a way that the maturity of the musicianship and songwriting comes through. There are nods to early punk influences from disparate and somewhat unexpected sources: like THE FIX or NEGATIVE APPROACH playing "Paranoid Time" but the end result is all their own. LABEL NEWS THE NUKES are the most patient and understanding band in the world. We've been trying for OVER A YEAR (!!!) to get their Fascist Perverts 7" pressed and after three mispressings and multiple problems, we are again waiting for their record to see the light of day. That record rules and we're told it shouldn't be too much longer until we have copies to share with all of you. RAW NERVES are playing Deadfest in Oakland this weekend. They play Saturday at 10:30pm in the main room. If you live in that area, or if you are traveling for Deadfest, don't miss them. In the meantime, they've been writing like crazy and they returned awhile ago from a tour of the midwest/east coast with CONCRETE CROSS and OBLIVIONATION. We're putting out the new AGENT ATTITUDE record called, "Deranged Realities". In anticipation and in support of the record, they will be touring Europe in September and October 2014 and the U.S. in February/March/April 2015. We've added the European dates to the "Tour" section of our website. More details to come on the U.S. dates. VÅNNA INGET is also making plans to come back to the U.S. More details when we have them. We should have test presses for a new NO MORE ART LP any day now. Expect this one to hit in October or November. NMA is also gearing up to record for their side of an upcoming split with the RED DONS that will be released on Man In Decline. We're beyond stoked for that, as we LOVE the RED DONS and NMA and that pairing makes so much sense. More on that one later... DAMAGED HEAD is also making plans to tour the U.S. It's looking like it will be spring 2015, most likely. In the meantime, the riff/song machine that is that band keeps kicking out the jams and they're scheduled to record with Kenko again in October. This time, they're recording for a split with Diagnosis Bastard that's due out in winter 2015. OBLIVIONATION is getting plans together to tour Scandinavia (and possibly other parts of Europe) in March 2015. Their new LP is out on Hardware Records in Europe. You might be deaf if you don't like it. We also had a second press, including color vinyl, of the OBLIVIONATION 7" that we were supposed to launch with the unsellable NUKES records mentioned above, so keep an eye out for more color copies of Cult of Culture to hit around the same time as THE NUKES. BURNING KITCHEN is wrapping up the mixing and mastering for an LP of 10 new songs--they're first new recordings in 14 years. The record is titled "Det Längtande Djuret", which roughly translates to "The longing animal", which is a term for the deliberate creation of consumers who are never content with what they own. Expect Det Längtande Djuret to be released in either late-2014 or early 2015. We can honestly say that this is some of their strongest material yet. In other BK news, they are scheduled to play "Fun in the UA Fest" in November and they'll participate on the next "Less Bank More World" comp. We also sent off the new ИO​/​/​/​sé LP called "Lower Berth" to the pressing plant last week. For those of you unfamiliar with ИO​/​/​/​sé, they released an excellent LP a couple of years ago and recently released a 7" on 1859 Records, with whom we're coreleasing the LP. This band features ex-members of GLASS & ASHES, YOUNG LIVERS, and guitarist Mike Carter even did a stint in YOUTH BRIGADE (yeah, that Youth Brigade). To our ears, they sound like a cross between G&A and YL mixed with more melodic and straightforward KBD punk. Think downstroke picking, gang choruses, catchy melodies, etc. Tracks to be posted soon.
  10. Now available: DAMAGED HEAD "S/T EP" one-sided, screenprinted 12" DAMAGED HEAD is a new band from Sweden with ex-and current members of HERÄTYS, INSTITUTION, NITAD, and AGENT ATTITUDE. Damaged Head plays traditional hardcore with punk sensibilities and hooks (think POISON IDEA, TOTALITÄR, and newer bands like AMDI PETERSENS ARMÉ and CAREER SUICIDE). After only a short time as a band, they recorded this self-titled EP with Kenko (MEANWHILE, BURNING KITCHEN, etc) at Communichaos Clay Station and the result is one of the most energetic and exciting hardcore EP's we've heard in a very long time. The Damaged Head EP contains 6 songs ranging from fast hardcore blasts to midtempo anthems, with the longest song clocking in at barely over 2 minutes. The North American pressing of the Damaged Head EP is a one-sided, screenprinted 12″ packaged in a single-pocket LP jacket with an insert. Mailorder gets colored vinyl. Download available immediately upon purchase. Listen and view details here: http://store.manindeclinerecords.com

  12. Yeah, I'll post here when things come together and some hard details are available to share.
  13. Preorders are up for the North American pressings of both LP's. Only 50 of each color available directly through us because we're holding the rest for the band's next U.S. tour. MID016 - VÅNNA INGET "INGEN BOTTEN" LP Man In Decline Records is proud to release the North American version of VÅNNA INGET's second LP, INGEN BOTTEN. In 2011, Vånna Inget released their debut album "ALLVAR" and quickly became a name associated with great expectations in their native Sweden. Three years on and they have been nominated for a Grammy in their home country and played all over Europe and The U.S. Where "Allvar" found power in its urgent and relentless delivery, "Ingen Botten" is a more nuanced affair. Sharp guitar riffs and shimmering organ melodies are woven together with an attentive and dynamic rhythm section and the band has taken the tempo down in a few places and left room for the arrangements to breath a bit more. Karolina's vocals have grown to reach even higher levels of poignant intensity and the band compliments this by nurturing their songs to a maturity between raw, punkish nerve and melodic sensibility. The band proved their recording prowess by tracking the entire album live, straight down on to 2" tape at the legendary Swedish studio, Varispeed. Sonically, the recording stands with some of the best punk records ever produced. Coupled with Vånna Inget's universal appeal and ability to turn claustrophobic themes of confinement and desperation into something that feels uplifting and liberating, "Ingen Botten" is sure to win over new and old fans alike. Download immediately available upon purchase. **THIS IS A PREORDER AND WILL SHIP NO LATER THAN MARCH 24th.** MID017 - VÅNNA INGET "ALLVAR" LP VÅNNA INGET is punk with a little more melody and pop sensibility, not unlike classic bands THE AVENGERS, THE BRAT, and THE GO-GO's, or Swedish contemporaries like MASSHYSTERI, KNUGEN FALLER, and BURNING KITCHEN. On their debut LP, ALLVAR, Vånna Inget captured a moment of spontaneity where driving minor chords and strong vocal harmonies made melancholy and anxiety feel like moods to strive for. Recorded in the band's home studio, ALLVAR was originally released in 2011, and only available in North America in a very limited quantity ahead of a U.S. tour. Man In Decline is proud to now make this amazing LP more widely available to fans on this side of the Atlantic. Since it's initial release, Allvar has been praised for the strength of the songwriting, the dynamic and varied tracks, and the production which allowed for the punk grit to come through while at the same time showcased the musicianship of the band. We think it's a bit premature to call this a "modern classic", as others have claimed, but the power of these songs is certainly undeniable. Download immediately available upon purchase. **THIS IS A PREORDER AND WILL SHIP NO LATER THAN MARCH 24th.** ORDER HERE: store.manindeclinerecords.com
