Archive for the ‘Devildance Stuff’ Category

So today is the release date for the newly remastered Gates – You Are All You Have Left to Fear ep. We are so stoked at the amount of preorders that came through. We worked through a whole Saturday making the limited letterpress covers, and sold them in about 5 minutes. The amount of appreciation that happens for the handmade stuff always makes it worth all the work, and anyway… we wouldn’t have it any other way. In this day and age it’s great to get something that isn’t perfectly manufactured. I think I’m speaking for most of the young-ish population when I say that We’re tired of perfect.

Thanks to Gates for making this great video (again) of the process. I’m really glad we were able to capture it. Oh also, you can buy the e.p. HERE

If anyone missed the memo, Gates recently got picked up by Pure Noise records. We are proud to be working with Pure Noise on the remastered re-release of their second ep, Your Are All You Have Left To Fear. Devildance Records will be handling the vinyl release of this, while Pure Noise will be releasing the CD/Digital. The new mix is incredible, and the album will include a brand new additional song. Get ready!

Hey everyone. We’ve been in hiding for a bit, but are a week away from dropping the new Let Me Run LP on vinyl. In the meantime we uploaded the whole thing to youtube. If you are into it please share. More details about orders and pressing info coming soon! Stay tuned.

The Fortunato/Give Me Danger split LP (2002) is one of our favorite releases, and one that has been mysteriously doomed since the day it rolled out of the manufacturing plant. Nevermind the fact that both bands disintegrated shortly after the release, but the masters vanished, hundreds of the LPs got flooded in a basement leaving very few in circulation, and being a vinyl only release, it seems that no one owns digital versions of the songs. We finally uncovered the closest thing to the Fortunato/Give Me Danger masters that I think we are going to find. Of course, the last song (Let’s Get Macbre) was still missing, so until we find a good copy we’ll have to settle for a vinyl rip.

Both of these bands were genius, and I partially blame myself for not enough people ever hearing them. Having a label is a blessing, until that point later on down the road where you realize you blew it while you were fumbling around trying to figure out how to do it the right way, and damning all you bands to obscurity in the process. But make no mistake about this release… if you have an appreciation for Dischord bands, 90s screamo, or The Murder City Devils this release should hit you just right. These bands, both of them were important pieces to the NJ music scene, and laid a lot of the groundwork for later New Brunswick bands. For a limited time, here is a free stream / download

We just finished up work on the Gates “the sun will rise and lead me home” 12″ e.p., which is proving to be quite a hit. We pressed a total of 320 records in 2 variations. The first and more limited was on blue & gold marble vinyl with a letterpress cover and is limited to 110 copies. This variation, was printed at my own letterpress shop Letters From Earth & I’m sorry to say is sold out. If you want to have a look at it though go HERE.

The second variation is on white vinyl and I have to say looks quite handsome itself… it’s also really limited at a total of 210 copies.

These are somewhat flying off the virtual shelves as well, so if you’re interested you’d be best suited to head over and grab one HERE! Or if you just want to give a listen to this free stream that’s cool too.  Hope everyone had a happy holiday!

The name The Bloodreds might ring a bell to Devildance Fans. That’s because we were slated to release a split 7″ with them and NJ punk band The Sirs. The record ended up falling through, the band went on hiatus, and the songs were temporarily sent to obscurity. We are really proud to have the freshly dusted off masters… this stuff was too good to slip away. Perhaps a little attention will be enough to coax the Bloodreds back out of purgatory and into the spotlight. These guys are too fresh sounding of a band to disappear without causing just a little more ruckus. This is most of their material (minus a few bits and pieces) and it shines. But hey, check it out for yourself… and by all means feel free to spread this link around.
