  1. New Album is Sam's best and most cohesive work yet, in my opinion. Another new song here: https://noisey.vice.com/en_us/article/yw5e8y/sam-ray-knows-what-heaven-feels-like
  2. Sorry dude! Lot of shit to type, we all make mistakes! These records are going to be beautifully packaged and sound great. Really happy to be doing this
  3. Pre-order the RFC reissues of The Casket Lottery's first three LP's here: www.runforcoverstore.com Twenty years into its existence, The Casket Lottery is still evolving at its own pace. Over the course of four full length records, four EPs and countless other 7" singles, the Kansas City band has flirted with fidgety math rock, atmospheric explorations and anthemic singalongs, all while showcasing a masterful ability to balance world-weary heavy hearts with bombastic choruses that explode into stadium-sized fireworks displays. While the band has taken a few hiatuses over the past decade (with members contributing to other projects like Coalesce, Appleseed Cast, Able Baker Fox, Jackie Carol and singer Nathan Ellis' solo work), every return to action finds The Casket Lottery recharged and refocused, eagerly annexing new musical territories while still retaining that ragged, restless fire that sparked the band two decades prior. This spring the band will be playing shows to help celebrate the rerelease of their first three LPs Choose Bronze (1999), Moving Mountains (2000), and Survival Is For Cowards (2002) on Boston label Run For Cover Records. The now-classic, long out-of-print albums are being repressed in limited quantities and will be available individually and in a box set available on Record Store Day 2018. Limited pre-sale is now available from Run For Cover. Tickets for the upcoming shows will be on-sale this Friday, January 12th at 10am local time (all tour dates below).

    PO Now: Camp Cope - Camp Cope

    Yeah the color came out super strange, sorry about that. We were confused as well.

    Turnover - Good Nature (8/25)

    Most limited version will be available by itself. There's no excessive packages or anything. There is a bunch of new stuff available, but its all available individually to let people just get what they want. There's going to be a really nice deluxe version of the record as well as a variant out of 500.

    PAX-AM Records (Ryan Adams)

    I have heard this song twice live, and I really, really think it sucks. It unarguably sounds like a track cut from S/T because it sounded too much like 3 or 4 songs already on it.

    PO Now: Code Orange - Forever.

    You're comparing someone dressed up as a clown giving an arguably offensive performance on a stage, to someone hitting a girl in the face with a bottle of liquor.

    The Infinity Crush song on this is unreal.
  9. I am confused by this conversation because Nicole has no relation to OT. Either way! Listen to the new song here: http://www.thefader.com/2016/08/12/nicole-dollanganger-run-for-cover-observatory-mansions-interview
  10. Genuinely curious, what's funny about it?
  11. It's hard to disagree or correct information without sounding like an asshole, but I assure you I do not mean to sound like an asshole, nor am I trying to make someone look stupid. If anyone cares to read about DMM vs. Lacquer vinyl pressing there's tons of information provided with a quick google search, but I found the explanation of the two here: http://forums.stevehoffman.tv/threads/poll-dmm-direct-metal-mastering-vs-lacquer-mastering-vs-dtd-direct-to-disc.350378/ to be pretty succint explanations.
  12. Respectfully, this information is not correct. Like any plant, Pirates/GZ use the audio you provide them. Are you implying that even when provided a quality vinyl master, they are somehow acquiring a CD or downloading MP3s and using those instead? Why would that ever happen? Some people prefer DMM and some don't, both methods have their pros and cons, but 99.9% of people would never notice the difference. If you've have poor sounding GZ pressings, it's because of the master provided. Sometimes their different configurations, haze in particular, has a "dust" or "sand" on it, which can easily be wiped off and does not scratch or hurt the record. This is definitely not ideal, but not the end of the world. GZ uses Direct Metal Mastering, which is a different process from using a lacquer. If you get a lacquer made and send it to Pirates or any plant pressing DMM vinyl you have wasted hundreds of dollars for no reason. Cheap packaging: Have you seen or held one of the Hey Mercedes 2xLPs, or really anything we've put out recently? You could likely knock someone out with it if you were so inclined. Like any plant in the world there is a multitude of packaging options. Nice things cost money. Some people don't want to pay for it, and in return their products have lighter/flimsier jackets. Blaming this on the plant makes zero sense.
