Hey everyone… our good friends over at Vinyl Collective are hosting a stream of our latest e.p. by The Sirs entitled She Gets Me High. Please head over there and give a listen. If you like what you hear drop a comment. I know this is asking a lot in the era of 600,000 bands… but if you like The Buzzcocks, Jay Reatard, Hellbender, or The Misfits I do not think this will disappoint. Plus it’s free music. OK JUST SHUT UP AND TAKE ME TO THE STREAM

Hey everyone, mark your calendars. We are having some record release shows for the Your Favorite Trainwreck / Communication Redlight split. Your Favorite Trainwreck features members of both Farside & Gameface… and those dudes are flying out here from California to come out and play a just a couple of record release shows to help support the release. Seeing as how amazing of them that is, we expect everyone that is interested to show up. This is going to be epic! Also, as of this wee the record is sent off to the presses…. GET SIKED!
I should’ve had the wherewithal to see this coming but, there is an interesting phenomenon happening at the Devildance blog. We started this thing on account of a temporarily broken website, and barely got 20 hits in a day since we put it up… until today. Today when I checked the blog stats it looked like this…
As you can imagine I was perplexed… so I went on over to check out the refer links, which if you aren’t familiar, are basically just records on how people got referred to your blog. And to my amazement most of the refers from today were from web searches involving our good buddy Andy Diamond. It took me a second, before it hit me like a ton of bricks… everyone who got the leak of the new Gaslight Anthem record heard the song “The Diamond Church Street Choir” and rushed to Google to find out who the fuck Andy Diamond was. I was dying, and of course I went directly to the phone and called Andy who replied “yeah dude you won’t believe all the people hitting me up on Facebook asking me if I’m THE Andy Diamond. This whole situation is extremely hilarious to me. And by the way if you accidentally found this blog by searching for Andy Diamonds Church Street Choir let me tell you… this dude is phenomenal. Definitely helping to keep the New Brunswick punk scene alive for many years. Andy, congratulations buddy, you are now an internet sensation.
Tis the season… for the annual court tavern show. These are always a blast. There is always much drunken debauchery. And there is always some fucking amazing band playing, This years line up is particularly awesome considering we are droppping records by two of these bands right after the new year. The Sirs should be playing some of their new material, Communication Redlight are just amazing, Let Me Run, hopefully breaking out some of their new songs from the Paper & Plastic EP that they’ve been recording… and Brian Fallon… so who could argue with that? See you there…
Cover Design by Jeff Caudill
Winter release news! so we just confirmed another release for early 2010… a split 7″ with California supergroup Your Favorite Trainwreck, which features Popeye of the band Farside and Jeff Caudill from the band Gameface. and New Brunswick’s own Communication Redlight which features ex-members of Delft and The Low End Theory. Here’s the skinny…
COMMUNICATION REDLIGHT. are a new New Brunswick, N.J. band… that play a modernized version of 90’s melodic hardcore. They are our dear old friends, and you are going to love them. Think Knapsack meets Inside. Without them this record would not be possible.
YOUR FAVORITE TRAINWRECK. Fuck I still can’t even believe we’re doing a record with these dudes. If you never heard of Farside or Gameface you should do yourself a favor and go check em out… as they were both Revelation Records favorites in the mid 90’s. When we were young and even dumber than I am now, ALL WE DID was go to shows, skateboard and listen to records…and you better believe Farside & Gameface were in heavy rotation. The Farside “hero” 7″ was the second 7″ I ever owned… and im sure a lot of you know, is in regular rotation every time I DJ. So it’s still a little surreal that we’re involved with this.
Anyway… Jeff Caudill is doing the cover and label design, and we’re looking at a tennative February/March release date. We’ll keep you hat and informed.
ALSO. don’t forget we have THE SIRS “she gets me high” 7″ coming out in January or February.
