NEW RELEASE: MAD EXISTENCE "S/T" 7" Out Now on Vinyl Conflict

Label and Webstore Update - July 8, 2016

Greetings everyone! Here's a quick label and webstore update for you …
NEW RELEASE: MAD EXISTENCE S/T 7" (VC-007) out Next Week

First off, we've got a brand new release on the Vinyl Conflict Label due out next week - the debut 7" EP from Richmond's MAD EXISTENCE. Mad Existence are a killer hardcore band have been kicking around town for a little over a year, releasing tapes and playing shows - you know, things bands do. Their debut is a pretty vicious little slab of hardcore punk goodness; M.E. delivers a tried and true 80's hc sound that pulls a little something from all good styles of hardcore across the decade.

You can give the full EP a listen or free download on the Grave Mistake Bandcamp page, and the record is also available for mailorder in the webstore. We pressed up 110 copies on Clear Vinyl, half of which are for mailorder and the other half will be available in the physical Vinyl Conflict Record Store.

The Vinyl Conflict Label is a Richmond based locals-only label focusing on 7" releases from upcoming Richmond punk/hardcore/metal bands, run by Grave Mistake and Vinyl Conflict Record Store. To date, VC has released EPs from Barge, Hard Stripes, Cretins, Devil's Hand, and Asylum, with the debut EP from RVA's Left Cross due out later this year.

RED DEATH on Life and Death Tour / Permanent Exile LP/CD on Sale

Red Death are currently several days into The Life and Death Tour 2016 with Terror, Power Trip, Harm's Way, Angel Du$t, and Fury, so check that tour out if it's coming near you because all of those bands are sweet. Red Death's long awaited Deterrence 7" is finally going to see the light of day this month on Lockin' Out Records as well, so keep your eyes peeled for that soon too (we should have a handful of distro copies in the Grave Mistake store shortly after it's out).

This week and through the weekend, you can pick up Red Death's Permanent Exile on LP for just $10 (and CD for $5) in the Grave Mistake store along with the remaining couple of Red Death shirts we have (size availability varies).

EARTH GIRLS Wanderlust LP out August 12th / Preorder and Track Stream up Now

If you missed the update last week, the debut LP from Chicago's Earth Girls will be hitting the streets on August 12th! GM released their debut EP back in 2014, and while the band's debut full length has been in the works since shortly after that release, we are beyond thrilled that it will soon be in your ears and hands.

You can Preorder the LP on some nice looking Red Vinyl now, and do yourself a favor and give a listen to "Say Goodnight," the first track we've posted up from the LP.

New Titles in the Webstore for July 8, 2016:
SHANGHAIS, THE "Fall in Love" 7" (Endless Daze Records)
Four new tracks from the Bay Area's favorite rock n' roll babes.  The Shanghais play catchy garage punk that is great for fans of The Shangri-La's, Nikki & the Corvettes and early Donnas.  Limited run of 300 copies with hand-numbered, hand-screened covers.

ANXIETY "S/T" 12" (La Vida Es Un Mus Records)
Formed in August 2015 Glasgow's ANXIETY have achieved quite a reputation locally thru their stage presence. A fully formed band which irradiates personality from the very first play and is not afraid to look at hardcore punk from outside the box. This their first release sees the band delivering nine tracks of discordant hardcore with layers and layers of distortion and vocal effects in barely 20 minutes. Pinpointing a band like ANXIETY is really hard. While they play hardcore based music their approaches are as broad as you can imagine with members coming from bands as different as HERBERT POWELL, PENNYCRESS, THE LOWEST FORM or APOSTILLE. So think of a way more aggressive BUTTHOLE SURFERS mixed with the less pompous SONIC YOUTH and a hint of contemporary Barcelona and NYC hardcore bands and then you may or not be close to describe ANXIETY's sound. The entire atmosphere of the record is hectic and oppressive with quite existential lyrics creating an overall feeling of uneasiness and internal confrontation pivotal to understand the band. Basically the band name says it best.

EFIALTIS "Κολοσσιαίο Γυναικείο Κεφάλι" 7" (La Vida Es Un Mus Records)
Recorded at the same session that their debut EP on Static Shock Records and comprising one new track and two songs from their debut demo EFIALTIS second vinyl offering sees the band delivering a punch in the face of male musical normality. EFIALTIS, an all female London based trio with heavy Greek/ Cypriot/ Welsh roots, brings what feels like the most menacing, stomping feral punk recorded in the last few years. Their sound is militant and obviously punk based. Their songs are simple, anthemic and mechanical. Their beat is perfect marching punk and in my dreams I see a bill with CRISIS, STRESS(GR) and CONTROPOTERE where after the last note church, state and any form of oppression is overtaken.
