GRAVE MISTAKE Full Label Update / Summer TOUR DATES!

Figured it would make sense to do a quick mid-year "check in" / round-up for everyone, plus we've got a bunch of bands going on tour this summer (some of which are leaving this week) so it would be good to keep you informed all that is happening with the label!

2013 as promised has been our busiest year to date ... So far we've released the following:

GRAVE059: BIG EYES "Almost Famous" LP/CD
GRAVE058: SICKOIDS "No Home" 12"
GRAVE057: BIG EYES "Demo 2010" 7"
VC-001: BARGE "No Gain" 7"

The feedback on all of these has been incredible, so thanks to every single one of you who have given any of these releases a listen, purchased a copy, distroed them, wrote a review, played them on a radio show, made a positive Facebook post about em, sent me a drunken text message about them, etc etc ... can't tell you how much that means to both myself and the bands so a sincere thanks to every one of you!

For those of you who still need to play catch up, you can stream all of these releases over at the Grave Mistake Bandcamp page or purchase them in the Grave Mistake Webstore. They are also available from many fine distributors, stores, labels, and digital outlets (Bandcamp, iTunes, Spotify, etc).

First thing, a bunch of Grave Mistake bands are going on tour very soon! BIG EYES, SICKOIDS, COKE BUST, NIGHT BIRDS, SCHOOL JERKS, and RED DONS (I'll get to that!) will all be heading out on tours this summer - all of the full info for each bands' tour is below, so PLEASE check these bands out if they come through your city!  They are all incredible!

Second, I wanted to fill you in on what's coming up over the next few months here at GMHQ ... I still have a ton in the works so here is the rundown!

GRAVE062: KREMLIN "Will You Feed Me" 7" - the US pressing of last year's EP will be available NEXT WEEK! This record rips! Released on HARDWARE RECORDS out of Germany last year, we are taking care of a new North American press because it's been getting harder and harder to get imported records due to the always increasing international shipping rates. You can check out the full EP over at the GM Bandcamp, and be sure to check out their new "Drunk in the Gulag" LP, which came out last month on BEACH IMPEDIMENT RECORDS.

GRAVE065: NIGHT BIRDS "Born to Die in Suburbia" LP/CD - yes, a new NIGHT BIRDS full length! I can't tell you how excited I am to be releasing yet another incredible release from these dudes. The follow up to their 2011 "The Other Side of Darkness" LP, for those of you who questioned how this band could possibly get any better, well they did it! I'm not going to gush too much here, but definitely check out their "Maimed for the Masses" 7" which came out on FAT WRECK CHORDS earlier this month. It's a single to the LP (with 3 non-LP b-sides) and you can check that out at the Night Birds Bandcamp page. "Born to Die in Suburbia" has a release date set for July 9th so expect to hear plenty more updates over the course of the next month.  European release will be handled by TAKEN BY SURPRISE RECORDS.

GRAVE066: RED DONS "Notes on the Underground" 7" - it's an honor to be releasing the newest single from this band! RED DONS have consistently blown me away with each release and this new single is no exception. I'm going to cut it there and just tell you to go do your research if you aren't familiar with this band, because you've been missing out! They have 2 LPs and 4 7" singles and you should check them ALL out! We are shooting to have copies for the RED DONS tour this July, and hope to have an "official" release date in early August.  Michl / TAKEN BY SURPRISE will also be releasing this 7" in Europe as well.

GRAVE067: COKE BUST "Confined" 12"/CD - Thrilled to be doing another release for DC's one and only COKE BUST!  This one is fucking BRUTAL ... they manage to once again deliver a severe hc beating and are out before you even knew what hit you. Damn, that was super corny, but oh well ... Coke Bust will be touring their asses off this summer and we are hoping to get them some vinyl for tour. We will also be releasing a CD version that will also contain the tracks from their "Degradation" 7", their split with Vaccine, and their set from the "Live on WMUC" 7".  REFUSE RECORDS will be handling a European version (on both formats) as well!

GRAVE061: 86 MENTALITY "Goin' Nowhere Fast" 12" - probably the release that I have been bugged about the most this year, and for good reason (because 86 Mentality RULES) Also, I've been talking about it for a few years and even teased everyone with a limited version at DAMAGED CITY FEST last month. We have had the vinyl in house, but the layout still needs to be finalized, so once that happens, we'll be good to go. I'm hoping to have this one out by early August as well but do not fear, it WILL happen and it will happen this summer! Thanks to everyone who made their surprise reunion set at Damaged City Fest a blast!

GRAVE063: STRIKING DISTANCE "March to your Grave" LP - the reissue of this 2001 YOUNGBLOOD RECORDS release (who are also assisting in the re-release) will also see the light of day once we get the artwork finalized, but we were lucky enough to get some limited copies to coincide with their reunion shows at United Blood Fest and Damaged City Fest. I believe SD are slated to play one more set this year at THIS IS HARDCORE fest, and we are hoping to have the real version ready to roll by then (hopefully soon)! HATED!

VC-002: DEVIL'S HAND "Welcome the Slaughter" 7" - the second release on the new VINYL CONFLICT LABEL is a three song rager from RVA's own DEVIL'S HAND. Once again, we are trying to finalize the artwork on this one but are hoping to have it out hopefully by the end of June! DEVIL'S HAND are one of the most intense bands Richmond has to offer, both live and on record, so we can't wait to get this one out to you all!

VC-003: HARD STRIPES 7" - one of Richmond's best and brightest new (well, new-ish) hardcorepunkmetal acts HARD STRIPES was kind enough to let VC handle the release their first EP! This band has made quite a name for themselves and hopefully you've checked em out or will check them out after you read this because you won't be disappointed! You can catch them at CHAOS IN TEJAS this weekend ... they are playing with BUSHWICK FUCKING BILL ... I thought my mind was playin tricks on me when I first heard that, but it's goin down for real!  Anyways, we hope to get cracking on this 7" in early June and are shooting for a release before the summer is up!

On top of these, I've got a few more things in the works.  No joke, THE THUMBS "All Lesser Devils" 12" will see the light of day this year I PROMISE!!! Also ... I will be teaming up with one of my favorite men in hardcore today, Mr. Sam Yarmuth of TRIPLE B RECORDS fame to bring you an IRON BOOTS DISCOGRAPHY LP!!! After an incredible reunion set at United Blood this year, we all realized that the legacy of IRON BOOTS must live on and with all of their 7"s now out of print, what better time then now to get these all on one convenient LP. This LP will contain their "2004 Demo" tracks, "Weight of the World" 7", and "Easy Green" 7", and in addition to those, REVELATION RECORDS was also nice enough to let us throw the "Generations: A Hardcore Compilation" tracks on there as well! We are going to get the ball rolling on this sometime this summer, no ETA for this LP at the moment, but if all goes according to plan it should be out before the year is up.

Well, that's all for now, tour dates are below and once again, thank you all for your continued support ... this label would not exist without it! I thank you and all the bands thank you!
