First Blood

So, first post on the new website! Of course, it wouldn’t be a real maiden post without bad news, would it?

The ABSOLUT MLP, Punk Survival, will unfortunately be delayed (again!) another month and a half due to the plant being backed up. Don’t worry: it will definitely be released in time for the band’s West Coast tour this spring! However, this will unfortunately affect production time for the Stone Dagger 7”, however slightly (hopefully not longer) it may be. Sorry to those restlessly waiting, but this is something no one can control! The wait will most definitely be worth it, though—hang tight!

In lighter news, Electric Assault Records has some big news coming in the near future, which includes not one, not two, but three releases! This year is going to be quite big, as everything about the label will be stepped up to new levels, from distribution, promotion, releases, etc. As some of you may have noticed, the distro does not exist any more and this cut is a result of prioritizing the label’s own releases exclusively. There are plenty of great distros around the internet, of course, but honestly, just go to your local independent record store—if they don’t have what you’re looking for, get them to order!

Finally, all available releases are now sold out, except for The Golden Grass’ One More Time 7”-single, which is dwindling weekly anyway (buy it here). The CREEP demo, which was pressed twice, will not be repressed. Fortunately, you can download it here for free! The Natur Demo 2010 12” will be out later than expected, but look for it in the spring.

As always, thanks for your continued support and look for more good (maybe less bad) news in the coming weeks! In the meantime, if you’re in NYC, check out this Full Psychedelic Rock Concert with The Golden Grass (more info here):
