Foreseen - Structural Oppression
Hey everybody, hope your holidays were spent well and you are all looking forward to 2014 as much as we here at Mind Rot Records are. We have several things in the works at the moment but we couldn’t wait to get this one announced any longer. We are very pleased to announce the addition of Foreseen to our roster; they have been kind enough to let us put out the U.S. pressing of their incredible “Structural Oppression” e.p.
Foreseen hail from Helsinki, Finland and play in a crossover style influenced by bands such as Crumbsuckers, S.O.D. and D.R.I. This is a band you will be hearing about more and more in the future so go ahead and check out the record here: http://foreseen.bandcamp.com/
We are currently looking at an early spring 2014 release date, so keep an eye out for preorders in the coming month.
To stay in the loop about this and other upcoming releases be sure to check out the following:
We’ve been quiet yet busy over here at Mind Rot. Judge has started a new company called Pipeline Merch and the site is now open. We have moved shops and ar proud to say we are part of Pipeline Merch. We have added over 40 new distro titles as well as multiple restocks and a mystery box. We also have two new band announcements but we will save that for another time.
Go check out Pipeline Merch, pick something up and show your support of Richmond, VA and the James River with a Pipeline RVA shirt. Thanks so much for all your support and patience but we promise with this merger all of your orders will be going out even faster now.
Check it out here:
Violent Reaction - S/T 7”
The North American pressing of the Violent Reaction S/T 7” is available now from both us or 6131 Records. Unless you have been living under a rock the past year you have heard this band and what more can I say about them that hasn’t already been said. Plain and simple this band is incredible and easily one of the best hardcore bands to come out of the U.K. in recent years (probably since Voorhees). Do yourself a favor and pick this up from us or 6131.
Violent Reaction Leftovers
We just added all of the Violent Reaction leftover shirts from their first U.S. tour as well as their debut LP to the web store. Also added a few things to the distro from: Rival Mob, Magic Circle, Down to Nothing, Cold Cave, Give, Mindset, Foundation, Title Fight and a bunch more go check it out:
Upperhand - Chains of Shame 7”
Here it is the debut 7” from Richmond, VA’s Upperhand entitled “Chains of Shame.” Formed in 2011 this band has been doing weekends and east coast/midwest tours whenever possible and after just blowing away United Blood this year Upperhand is showing little signs of slowing down anytime soon. Featuring members of Break Away and Friend or Foe this record should please anybody who is fans of Murphy’s Law, Breakdown and the Cro-mags.
You can check out two songs off of “Chains of Shame” on our bandcamp: http://mindrotrecords.bandcamp.com/album/chains-of-shame
and if you like what you hear go ahead and pick up a copy from us on our webstore: http://mindrotrecords.storenvy.com/
Violent Reaction S/T 7”
Very happy to finally announce that we will be releasing the North American pressing of the Violent Reaction S/T 7” along with our friends at 6131 Records. Very excited to be working with Tom again and finally having a chance to work with 6131. If you still haven’t checked out Violent Reaction do yourself a favor and check out the demo we put out for them last year over at our bandcamp. Angry straight edge hardcore from Liverpool, UK. Be on the lookout for them in the US with Hounds of Hate in April and an LP dropping on Painkiller records later this year.
Hope everybody’s holidays were great just a quick update of all the things over here.
We just put up some tapes from Violent Reaction and Richmond’s own Phantom (who will be releasing their debut e.p. “Voodoo” with us in 2013) both of which are going fast so get on those before they are gone.
Second We have very limited stock left on both the Nowhere Fast and Break Away records. The breakdown looks like this:
Nowhere Fast – 5 records left (this will not be repressed)
Break Away – For Life – 2 Black, 5 Blue, 5 Clear. We still aren’t sure if this will be repressed so pick this up while you have the chance (Blue is the rarest color /98)
