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:

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.

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:

Will this release be getting a vinyl pressing?

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.

I dont know who any of those people are covering against me.  Are those like, fake names for actual bands who are doing the covers?

yep. all fake names. this is just one big, clever ruse.

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.
