NEW RELEASE: BARGE "S/T" LP Out Now - Full Stream and Order Info

New Full Length from BARGE Out Now
East Coast / Midwest Tour Starts This Weekend
The crushing new LP from Richmond, VA's BARGE is now available for mailorder from Grave Mistake Records in the US and Quality Control HQ in the UK / Europe, and is streaming in full (and available for download) on Bandcamp as well.

"The debut full length from Richmond, VA's Barge is an unstoppable whirlwind of uncompromising hardcore insanity. These twelve blistering tracks find the band maturing both musically and lyrically from their debut EP, "No Gain." Sonically, Barge pummels through with the speed and ferocity of powerviolence greats like Infest and Crossed Out, and delivers with unadulterated vitriol calling to mind Youth of Today and Ripcord's most searing moments. The opening track, "Social Pressure," kicks this album from 0 to 120 out of the gate, then proceeds with a non-stop barrage of savage riffs and pulverizing breaks (reminiscent of Boston hardcore heavyweights Mind Eraser), straight through to the album's final track, "Dismantle," which trudges to a close with brutal precision. Lyrically, Barge's message is as heavy and powerful as their sound - addressing personal themes of alienation, acceptance, distrust, and disenchantment in the current climate of both our subculture and in the everyday life of 2016. Confronting issues of race and racial identity, masculinity and machismo, and corruption and bigotry in politics and law enforcement, the overall narrative draws parallels to illustrate how the DIY scene in many aspects is very much a microcosm of society, both of which face abuses of privilege and power that need to be properly addressed, confronted, and ultimately destroyed. If there’s anything to take from this record, it’s to never trust power and those who hold it, as it will inevitably be used to abuse, exploit, and marginalize those without it."
Grave Mistake still has some copies of the limited GREEN VINYL (200 pressed) available for mailorder, and the record should be getting around to your favorite stores and distros over the next few weeks. If you run a distro or record store and would like copies or wholesale info, get in touch!
Barge are playing two Record Release shows this weekend with DC's Pure Disgust, who also have a brand new LP out on Katorga Works, and will then be heading out on tour from 8/28-9/9 with Richmond's Mad Existence for a nice little East Coast / Midwest excursion. Info on all of these shows is below.
Thanks to everyone who has listened to, shared, or picked up a copy of the LP already!

Friday, August 19, 2016


Hello! Lots of stuff going on over here at GMHQ; we've got a couple of new releases and plenty of new distro titles (a few of which from Grave Mistake related bands), so let's get started...
First off, Grave Mistake has TWO new releases out this month - the debut LP from Chicago's Earth Girls, Wanderlust, which officially came out last Friday, and a reissue of Washington DC's The Suspects 1995 debut LP, Voice of America, which is officially out today! Both releases are shipping now, so head on over to the Grave Mistake Webstore and check 'em out! Here is some quick info on each:

 GRAVE077 / Release Date: August 12, 2016

Pick up a copy of the red vinyl or give the record a listen / download:

"Earth Girls play power pop with an emphasis on “power." Spearheaded by guitarist/vocalist, Liz Panella, the Chicago-based band write songs that are bursting with breezy earworms but still pack an undeniably urgent punch. This precarious and exciting balance between infectiousness and grit propels the band’s debut full length, Wanderlust. Throughout Wanderlust, Panella effortlessly combines elements of 60s and 70s pop with more modern influences, while adding her own distinguishing touches to make songs that are as catchy as they are concise. Earth Girls’ songs are driven by hook-filled immediacy, but they aren’t without sonic and lyrical depth. The best hooks always sound effortless and Wanderlust is loaded with these deceptively catchy yet winding melodies and chord changes. Every instrument plays it’s role perfectly and tastefully; warm vocal harmonies weave around gritty guitar and inventive bass lines, all held together by airtight drumming. The album's tight 21 minute runtime lends itself to repeat listens that reveal Panella’s attention to detail in arrangements, as well as pointed lyrics reflecting a struggle to make the most of life and its relationships."

THE SUSPECTS Voice of America LP (Reissue)
 GRAVE073 / Release Date: August 19, 2016
Pick up a copy of the vinyl or give the record a listen / download:

"Grave Mistake and Six Feet Under are honored to present a significant piece of Washington, DC punk history - a reissue of The Suspects' 1995 full length, Voice of America, along with the tracks from their 1994 debut self-titled 7". Originally released on their own Torque Records label, the band's seminal output contains thirteen blasts of timeless and unadulterated punk rock, delivered with a precise intensity that maintains its urgency two decades later. Founded by original Scream drummer Kent Stax alongside guitarist Bryan Harbin, bassist Chris Condayan and vocalist Brian Gayton, the Suspects came together in 1993 with one objective -  to inject the Nation's capital with a long forgotten dose of uninhibited punk intensity. Combining their love for classic '77 UK punk with the aggression and power of the DC Hardcore classics, The Suspects were a pivotal band for the region; crucial in keeping the spirit of DC Punk and Hardcore alive and flourishing for generations to come."
If you aren't familiar with The Suspects (which is one of the reasons we wanted to do this reissue), you can check out The Suspects Bio written up for the release, as well as this Washington City Paper article on the reunion show they did last month (which was GREAT, btw). Not to mention, there is an archived Maxium Rocknroll interview the band did in 1995 for you to check out as well!
Both of these new releases are currently available direct from Grave Mistake, as well as from other awesome stores and distros like Sorry State Records, RevHQ, Deathwish, Dischord, Midheaven, and more! If you are a store, label, or distro and would like to carry copies of any Grave Mistake releases please get in touch for wholesale info!
That's all of the label news I'm going to hit you with today, expect much more in the coming weeks!
Now, on to the webstore update as promised...
For quick browsing of recent additions to the store, you can check out all of these titles mentioned below in the New Arrivals and Recent Restocks sections!
First off, I have some new releases in the distro from some GM afilliated bands - RED DEATH, BIG EYES, and TENEMENT! This new Red Death 7" (their Lockin' Out debut) has been in the works for over a year, and despite unfortunate delays it is finally upon us and it rages! I think the only bad thing about this EP is that it isn't longer. Regarldless, a no-brainer pick up and will get you stoked for more new material from Red Death (hopefully sooner than another year).
Stocked up on the new Big Eyes Stake My Claim LP, which is phenomenal! Kait has been laying low with new Big Eyes material for a while now, but this LP has been so worth the wait - I definitely think it's the most powerful and cohesive Big Eyes full length to date, and if you were a fan of the previous Big Eyes output then you will most likely love this LP. If not, you might want to get your ears (or brain) checked out by a doctor.
And finally, picked up copies of the new Tenement LP - a few of these tracks circulated as a tour tape last year, but this new record is the perfect follow up to last years incredible Predatory Headlights double LP. A must for any Tenement fan, you won't be disappointed.
In other distro news - we have the debut LP from the UK's ARMS RACE - this LP is definitely one of my favorite hardcore releases of the year, it's downright punishing! Arms Race were one of the best bands I saw last year, and this new release lives up to every expectation I had after for their next release. Definitely worth your hard earned cash! I was also able to grab a few copies of the KRIMEWATCH demo, which RIPPPPPS so definitely check that out if you haven't yet and scoop up a tape! In other new release news, picked up the new LP from Orange County's current hardcore faves FURY, the new EP from RVA locals FRIED EGG, a 7" version of the rad demo from Omaha's BIB, a goddamn ripper of an LP from Finland's KOHTI TUHOA, the new tape from Boston's GLORY, and SIX 7" reissues from UK classics THE VARUKERS, courtesy of the one and only Havoc Records.
And finally, still some great stuff from the last update as well in case you missed it - new stuff from RAKTA, G.L.O.S.S., THE POSE, SILENT ERA, ALIENATION, and more are all still available as well.
Full list is below, so check it out and thanks for reading ...

New Webstore Titles for August 19, 2016

ARMS RACE "New Wave of British Hardcore" LP (Painkiller Records)
ARMS RACE unleash their debut album after a well-received 6-track demo in 2013 and a 6-track 7" EP in 2014 on Quality Control HQ and Painkiller. Arms Race arrived on the scene fully formed with their powerful and gnarly UK-meets-USA hardcore: their signature sound of a vocalist chewing on glass is backed by one of the most solid rhythm sections in HC these days, and the guitar work adds a metallic element making the whole sound gigantic while keeping the ugliness and aggression to the max. NWOBHC is a statement of no-frills hardcore that is not scared to reach out to different corners of the punk and metal world. Includes a poster insert and excellent cover art by the illustrious Andy Fletcher

RED DEATH "Deterrence" 7"
(Lockin' Out Records)
Newest, highly anticipated 7" from DC's Red Death. The follow up to last years Permanent Exile LP, this 7" has a beefy recording and is more blatantly crossover, think more C.O.C. or Bastard than Rest In Pieces. And the cover art is a new career highlight from Arbysdrink. A rampaging beast is drawn like an actual moving toy ripped from a half-forgotten, childhood nightmare.

KRIMEWATCH Demo Tape (Lockin' Out Records)
Best demo of 2016! Ripping HC Punk from New York - I've read several reviews saying it has a Japanese hc sound but I definitely catch more of a UK82 vibe from it. Either way, makes me want to circle pit, pogo, and throw shit around the room. Love it.

BIG EYES "Stake My Claim" LP (Don Giovanni Records)
Big Eyes, the brainchild of Kait Eldridge, is a band that has spent its career successfully defying classification. They'€™re a punk band with pop sensibilities; they'€™re a power pop group with a hard rock edge. Big Eyes are different things to different people, and yet have always felt ultimately content cemented "in-between" the scenes. Stake My Claim, the band's third full length, was recorded throughout the fall and winter of 2015. It opens with their heaviest song to date, the title track, which sets a tone of Kait at a crossroad: Cause nothing stays the same / stake my claim. Her lyrics are centered around dissatisfaction and a need for change. Throughout the entirety of Big Eyes' discography, there is an undercurrent of sadness and frustration, but within Stake My Claim, Kait has found a sense of acceptance. With the release of Stake My Claim, Big Eyes have expanded from a power trio to a four piece band, and are now able to showcase the driving, dueling guitar leads and classic power pop vocal harmonies of their albums within their live shows. With Kait on guitar and lead vocals, featuring Paul Ridenour on guitar and backup vocals, Malcolm Donaldson on bass, and Griffin Harrison on drums, the band sounds more complete and finessed than ever before. Despite location and lineup changes, Eldridge has always had a clear vision for Big Eyes: to find her own distinct balance between punk, hard rock and pop.

TENEMENT "S/T" LP (Deranged Records)
After the release of last year’s highly anticipated double LP masterpiece, “Predatory Headlights,” comes a new 12” EP by the Wisconsin punk outfit known as Tenement. This self-titled record includes the newly mastered 5-song tour EP only previously released to a limited 50 cassettes, as well as two new unreleased tracks. Like most Tenement releases, this record transitions willingly into a different side of the band, one that’s a little less punk and a little more pop. It’s a sound that’s been poking it’s way through the band’s decade long tarp, finally stretching a hole large enough to crawl out of. The band has always stayed steadfast to being one big polychromatic puzzle. No singular record can properly portray their musical identity as a whole. Here lies yet another piece to the ongoing puzzle, a puzzle many fans surely hope won’t get solved anytime soon.

BIB "Demo" 7"
(Deranged Records)
When you hear Omaha, Nebraska, you might think of steak, Warren Buffet, or Saddle Creek Records. But you probably don’t think of hardcore. In comes BIB. Noisey, blown out hardcore from the middle of nowhere. Following the “everything louder than everything else approach” to their demo, Bibs already colossal riffs sound like an avalanche when the bottom drops. Squirmy effected vocals veer their sound from huge to weird. Live, sometimes seen with 3 guitar players, Bib takes their wall of sound to a whole new level that will leave your eardrums vibrating . The straight ahead, downstroke pounding demo has been compared to the likes of Hoax mixed with Pissed Jeans. Originally released on a limited run of self dubbed tapes, Bib is happy to bring their demo to life as a 7 inch with help from Deranged.

FURY "Paramount" LP/Tape (Triple B Records)
Available on vinyl and cassette. At the apex of Fury’s short and startling rise, from a providential birth in late 2013 through era-defining performances at America’s Hardcore fest in 2014 and 2015, the Orange County five-piece has delivered Paramount, a debut full-length album of grace, erudition, and effortless virtuosity that guarantees Fury’s induction into the tiny fraternity of epochal hardcore bands — e.g., Embrace, Unbroken, Mental — in whose sonic singularity and aesthetic intelligence the best minds of successive generations have seen themselves reflected. Paramount is impossible to characterize in the usual terms of A-meets-B direct influence: maybe you hear Burn, maybe you hear Outburst or Beyond or Supertouch, but no combination of such references conveys the subtlety of the songwriting, the precision of the musicianship, or the ferocity of Jeremy Stith’s vocal performance, by way of which one encounters the best written and most cleverly phrased hardcore lyrics in recent memory. Paramount is, as they say in the groves of academe, sui generis. And yet to apprehend the lyric sheet’s overt intertextuality (no less than Shakespeare, Don Delillo and Praise’s Andy Norton, among others, are given co-writing credit), to hear the multiplicity of guest vocalists, to spend the 12 minutes required to read the voluminous thanks list — all this is to know, as the band itself surely does, that Paramount belongs no more to the individuals who recorded it than to the entire roiling, loving, terrifying, inspiring, hateful, romantic, literate, ignorant, fantastically dynamic culture that gave rise to it.

FRIED EGG "Delirium" 7" (Negative Jazz Records)
The latest from FRIED EGG, a six minute exercise of tense and spastic hardcore punk. Following the off-beaten tread of their debut 7" flexi, the three new cuts on Delirium wind even tighter and further left-of-centre. Side A boasts two schizoid hardcorepunk bursts, backed with the ugly, self-loathing dirge that forms “Eggshells”. The fluid instrumentation and anxious, spit-laden vocals capture the same uneasy and warped state of mind evident in the mugshots laid out across the picture sleeve. FRIED EGG deliver a perfectly delirious EP of hardcore punk from the outer-limits of Virginia.

KOHTI TUHOA "Rutiinin Orja" LP
(Southern Lord Records)
Debut album by Kohti Tuhoa, a southern Finnish hardcore group comprised of members of  Speedtrap, Circle, Perikato and Kylmรค Sota.  Naming Framtid and Rattus as principal influences, the quartet knocked many a punk fan out with their debut 7" EP last year. This full lenght album is taking things closer to the limit and pushing them over the edge.  Vocalist Helenas’ vocals are some of the most unhinged, maniacal evocations heard since early era Negazione! WILD AS ALL FUCKING GET OUT!  Stoughton tip-on jacket.

WOUND MAN "Perimeter" LP (Painkiller Records)
Returning to the fertile ground that Breathing Fire and Mind Eraser were cultivated on (and featuring members of both), Wound Man unleash a dense storm of blasting speed and oppressive sludge, recorded raw and in-the-red on cassette 4-track.

VARUKERS "Protest and Survive" 7" (Havoc Records)
Originally released in 1981, this 7” is like a blast of pure power from the early days of hardcore punk. Varukers was one of the first bands to take up the gauntlet laid down by Discharge to combine the rebel attitude of punk with the pure energy of hardcore. This four song banger bursts with raw energy and anger, the recording is raw and urgent, three tracks are primal raw D Beat, while Soldier Boy is a more pogo punk UK82 anthem, well known for it’s inclusion on the Punk and Disorderly compilation.

VARUKERS "I Don't Wanna Be A Victim" 7" (Havoc Records)
This is the second ep from the Varukers, originally released in 1982. Varukers seamlessly blend the styles we now call D Beat and UK82. This 7” features three of the more traditionally punk influenced mid paced sing along ragers, picking up towards the end with the more hard edged “No Masters, No Slaves”

VARUKERS "Die for Your Government" 7" (Havoc Records)
The Varukers third 7” from 1983 originally released on Riot City.  The production progresses from the raw production of the first two eps.  Two sides of huge crushing riffs, the best of catchy punk and  raw hardcore power in an intoxicating mix.

VARUKERS "Massacred Millions" 7"
(Havoc Records)
Originally released as a 12” ep in 1983, this is raw and savage hardcore in the Discharge tradition. From the alienation and misery of Thatcher’s Britain came the revolt of punk against the establishment, society, and the weak posing of the sold out remnants of first wave of punk. Taking punk to it’s most logical extreme, Varukers channeled the angst of the era into these four tracks of hardcore power.

VARUKERS "No Hope of A Future" 7" (Havoc Records)
Originally released in 1984 on, this 7” features the Varukers developing into a tight and powerful hardcore machine. The punk bounce has given way to a heavier more proto crust hardcore sound. Lean and powerful, this record has the same raw production and urgency as the first two eps.

VARUKERS "Led to the Slaughter" 7"
(Havoc Records)
Originally released in 1984 on Riot City, three tracks of unrelenting hardcore punk moving more towards the sounds of the Another Religion Another War era. Like Discharge, the Varukers pushed to a harder more powerful sound with more leads and guitar wails, but always staying firmly rooted in the world of punk rock and not veering as far into the territory of metal. Huge riffs, raw beats, pure rage.

CULT VALUES "S/T" LP (Deranged Records)
Cult Values was formed in October 2014 in Berlin as an international collaboration between people from the USA, New Zealand, Austria and Germany. After recording a much acclaimed demo in 2015 (out on Berlin’s own Static Age Rec.) and a line up change on drums right after, CV started playing tons of shows in Germany and the periphery as well as writing songs for an LP. Said record was finally recorded in December 2015 by Tobias Lill and scheduled for release July 2016 on Deranged Records.  Musically, there is something very early American hardcore meets post-punk about their sound, defined by fast, melodic, and confident guitar play reminiscent of Articles of Faith and more recently Criminal Code.  Cult Values deliver 10 tracks of potent dark hardcore that will surely leave those hungry for a solid contemporary take on a classic sound quite satisfied.

(Discos MMM)
Split 7" from Montreal's Parasytes and Bogota's Secta. Parasytes features members of After the Bombs, Truncheons, etc, but rips in a much more UK82 style than other bands Janick has been in. On the flip are two new songs from Bogota's Secta. These two pick up where their split with Dead Hero left off, driving melodic hardcore punk. A great split with awesome handmade and screened packaging that showcases the friendship that formed at last year's Varning Fest. Out in time for Parasytes Japan tour! 500 pressed worldwide (Dure Realite, Rakkos, Rat Trap, FYBS and MMM) with 130 available from MMM.

FINAL 2016 Demo Tape (Discos MMM)
US press of the demo from this Bogota, Colombia hardcore band with members of Secta, out in time for their tours of the US east and west coast ending at Latino Punk Fest in NYC. This is brutal hardcore punk with vocals spit out at breakneck speed not unlike Rudimentary Peni. 150 pressed.

FLEX, THE "Don't Bother with the Outside World" 7" (Lockin' Out Records)
There is no question that the UK is putting out some of the finest hardcore right now. At the forefront of this NWOBHC (New Wave Of British Hardcore) renaissance is the wolf pack from Leeds, THE FLEX. With a sound that invokes DYS birthed in the gutters of New York in 1986, Don’t Bother With The Outside World sees THE FLEX rip through six ferociously violent tracks of pure hardcore aggression on their Lockin’ Out debut.

HAMILTONS, THE "You're Through" 7"
(Hello Records)
Hailed by some as Canada's answer to The Ramones, Terry, Jackie, and Mikey are back with a brand new 7" from The Hamiltons

(Triple B Records)
Debut 7" for Boston's newest straight edge group. 7 tracks of Confront/Brotherhood influenced hardcore.

GLORY "3 Song Promo (2016)" Tape (Triple B Records)
Three new songs from Boston's GLORY. Killer hc w/ a late 80s yc vibe - and as the cover art indicates if you like Nikes and doing athletic shit, you'll definitely dig this.

DINOS BOYS "Last Ones" Tape
(Dead Broke Records)
Sleazy garage punk rock & roll from Atlanta, Georgia!

FROZEN TEENS Tape (Dead Broke Records)
Minneapolis' garage punkers' 2012 full-length album, pressed on a high-quality Cassette. 100 pressed on White Tapes w/ Red Imprinting.

MAXIMUMROCKNROLL #400 - September 2016

Here it is: the September 2016 issue, Maximum Rocknroll #400. It’s hard to believe we’ve been at it for this long, so this time we’re turning back to reflect on the people that make it happen every month: our shitworkers. Every band featured in this issue features at least one volunteer or contributor to the mag. We’ve got the Welsh-Greek-Cypriot maelstrom that is London’s EFIALTIS, Oklahoma City’s AMERICAN HATE and Chicago’s the BUG scrambling the signals of Midwestern hardcore, the uncompromising melodic punk of the Bay Area’s own SYNDICATE and SILENT ERA (perhaps the only all-MRR-shitworker band?), and NORMS out of Budapest offering their perspective on punk life in an unforgiving modern landscape. On top of that, we have interviews with Evolution of a Race Riot zinester and scholar Mimi Thi Nguyen as well as former MRR coordinator Arwen Curry discussing her upcoming documentary Worlds of Ursula K. Le Guin. We also have current shitworkers revealing their work inside and outside of the pages of MRR: San Francisco/Los Angeles based journalist Oscar Gutierrez, Washington’s Farrah Skeiky (official photographer of the NWODCHC?), and the Bay Area’s Scream Queens giving us the dirt on their eponymous radio show and their upcoming magazine. If that weren’t enough, we’ve also got a photo spreads and commentary from Copenhagen’s K-Town Hardcore Fest, hundreds of reviews, all of your favorite columnists, and—get this—a table of contents. That’s right, this issue debuts a fresh new look for MRR. It only took us 400 issues to get page numbers, who knows what the future may hold?

JUST SAY YO Zine Issue #7
Newest issue - 48 pages, in English, full-sized black & white (colored cover), featuring PRAISE (interview with Andy Norton), SEATTLE'S NEW GODS ( interview with Ian Shelton), MODERN LOVE (interview with Erik "Anarchy" Kaluza), WORKSHED RECORDS (retrospective with Dan O'Mahony), VERBAL ASSAULT (reprint from 1989) + Columns, Reviews (Records and zines), etc.
