Following on from their excellent 2017 debut album, Howls have released two new tracks on limited edition cassette. You can listen to both songs right now on IDIOTEQ.com
Both of these tracks were recorded in a couple of overnight sessions with one of our favourite producers, Tom Hill, in February 2017 and were originally intended to be released on an EP that would follow shortly after The Headache. However, the band never completed this record as members moved away and began work on other projects. We believe these are some of Howls best songs to date, so we are pleased to finally be able to release them on this limited edition cassette.
Hexis start another mammoth European tour this week. Over the course of the next six weeks, they will play 44 shows in 17 countries. Safe to say that if you live in Europe, Hexis will be playing near you very soon.
It's finally here! Rope's long awaited sophomore LP is out today. Pick up a copy of the vinyl from our store, or stream the album on Spotify, Apple Music, Bandcamp, or anywhere else you can think of. We hope you love the album as much as we do.
Our new record ‘Come Closer Now’ is out next month, and here’s a list of songs for you to play (known otherwise as a playlist); this isn’t really a cross-reference of things the album sounds like, more just sort of stuff I/we (mostly I to be fair) enjoy that is worth hearing and gives some vague context. Some stuff here is included on the grounds of great lyrics (“I could drink a case of you, darling, and I would still be on my feet”), some on the grounds of solid riffin’ (Wrote For Luck) some on the grounds of great songwriting (The Electrician) or the achievement of what is commonly known as ‘vibez’ (The Rainbow) - to be honest some of it is just there to freak you out (Face on Breast)
We are incredibly excited to announce the release of Rope's sophomore LP, 'Come Closer Now' which will be released by Truthseeker on July 6th on vinyl and all digital platforms.
You can stream the first single, 'Exit Interview' on DIY Mag right now!
Once again, Rope chose to track the album entirely live with Lewis Johns at The Ranch Production House in Southampton in just three days during 2017.
Since the release of their debut album in 2016, Rope have expanded to become a 4-piece. The additional guitar now serves to add a greater detail and texture to the already nuanced and mesmerising songs that Rope have become known for.
After the first press sold out far quicker than we could have ever imagined, we are pleased to announce that Rope's debut album, 'Manteision Bodolaeth' will be reissued on July 6th.
On the first press we decided to try and keep costs at a minimum, and so a number of elements were done by hand - I printed and cut to size every lyric sheet at my work. With this second press we have opted to get everything done professionally and with higher quality materials. For collectors there is an easily discernible difference between both the packaging on both pressings, as well as the vinyl now having a new colour way which better reflects the colours on the artwork.
We are proud to present Tor's latest full length, ‘Too Happy’ which will be released on vinyl and all digital platforms on May 25th. You can listen to a single from the album on our Bandcamp right now, and another track over at Punktastic.
