Dead Broke & Recess present a split for the ages! We’ve teamed up to release a split 12" of our own bands, on our very own labels, and it’s good as fuck. Iron Chic bring forth 4 brand new songs, taken straight off the cutting room floor of our last album, "You Can’t Stay Here". One of these tracks is so good that I actually wanted it on the album, but it just didn’t get the vote. Toys That Kill slay it with 5 new songs that were supposed to be part of their next album… but since they are the best band in punk, we asked them to split a 12" with us & they contributed the songs onto this fine piece of wax instead. 700 Black, 100 "Fest" Splatter, 100 Purple, 100 Coke-Bottle Clear.

Gainesville, Florida punk legends, RADON deliver their fourth album to date of rocking & poppy melodic punk rock that has paved the way for many to follow. For over 27 years this quintessential Gainesville band has been churning out some of the best melodic punk the South has ever seen. Fast forward to 2018, Radon are back with a new full-length album of some of their best & catchiest stuff to date. And we’re absolutely thrilled to give this gem of an album the vinyl treatment, along with our old friends at Creep Records. 400 Black, 100 Vanilla Blue vinyl. (Comes w/download code)

Porcupine was born in 2006 in La Crosse, Wis., where singer/guitarist Casey Virock had previously launched another indie rock trio, Space Bike. Now based in Minneapolis, the band has evolved to full maturity, a potent force propelled by drummer Ian Prince and the most recent addition to the band, bassist Greg Norton (formerly of HÜSKER DÜ). In naming the band, Virock saluted one of his favorite bands, Echo and the Bunnymen, and his songcraft and musical sensibilities swirl the Bunnymen and other New Wavers along with 1960s British psychedelica purveyors (especially Syd Barrett) and 1970s classic rockers. The result is muscular and edgy, infused with melodicism and angular guitar work that puts the band in a class with Queens of the Stone Age and Swervedriver. Six brand new songs produced & recorded by Kevin Bowe (Paul Westerberg/The Replacements) including a Grant Hart cover! (Comes w/download code) 400 Black, 100 Baby Blue vinyl.

Sophomore album from Chattanooga, TN punk region rock band featuring members of Future Virgins, This Bike Is A Pipe Bomb, Hidden Spots, Jack Palance Band, Black Rainbow & more. Follow up to their "Lydiad" LP in 2015 on No Idea, and the bands’ best stuff to date. Scrappy yet melodically beautiful pop-punk, churning with honest anthems from DIY veteran punkers. Recorded by Jerri Queen & John Hoffman of VACATION. (Comes w/ download code) 300 Black vinyl, 100 Banana Yellow vinyl.

The Parasites return with their first split 7" since their split with Boris The Sprinkler more than 20 years ago. Out of all of the bands that were made popular by the 1990’s pop punk insurgance, none were as underrated as The Parasites. Undeniable melodys and hooks, along with Dave Parasites unique and sincere voice made The Parasites one of the most influential punk bands of the 1990’s. Their influence has never been stronger than on the two new tracks recorded for this record. Raging Nathans have proven themselves to be a reckoning force within the DIY punk rock scene, record after record. The record fills a gap that has been missing for quite sometime in punk rock music. With leads for days, chunky rhythms & honest lyrics, the Nathans once again push themselves ahead of the rest of the pack on this 7". Split release w/ Rad Girlfriend. (Comes w/ download code)

Long Island’s Somerset Thrower are returning this year with a new album, Godspeed, on August 24 via Dead Broke Rekerds. They’ve got a sound that’s got one foot in Jawbreaker/Sunny Day Real Estate-style emo and another in Gin Blossoms-y alt-rock, and though they aren’t the first modern-day band to bring those two sides of the ’90s together, they do it in a way that feels fresh and vital. Their songs really rip, and they really reach that cathartic climax that music like this is supposed to reach..” – BV (Comes w/download)

Brooklyn, NY (by way of Long Island) shoegaze indie/rock/grunge/pop band’s finest work yet. Follow-up to their last album, "Tarantula" on Don Giovanni Records. New York’s Giant Peach are set to release their sophomore album… while their previous work opted for an indie punk sound, their latest album offers a scenic approach to their sonic splendor, open and sprawling over the course of a warm and meditative hour. There’s a ton of detail and nuance, with the band exploring their surroundings and using the studio to push new territory previously unexplored. Limited "Ocean Blue" vinyl available! (Comes w/download code) *Digital download includes 2 exclusive bonus tracks!

The third and final Heavy Pockets LP. Amazing indie/pop rock & punk from NH. going out with a bang. Their best batch of songs to date.

(Comes w/download code) Pay-what-you-want download here:

Bedford Falls are back with third album "Send More Bees", follow up to 2012’s "Elegant Balloons". This new album sees the band capture the power & grit of their live show more than their previous recording outings, and sounds like the crashing of (fuzzy) guitar driven indie punk rock. This is the Welsh take on that Dinosaur Jr/Husker Du/Superchunk/Moving Targets/Superchunk sound, with a healthy nod to Big Star- but in a sea of very ordinary bands attempting this genre, BF absolutely nail it. More than worth the six year wait! [Co-release w/ Boss Tuneage & Brassneck Records] (Comes w/download code)

Gloriously restored & remastered from the original reel-to-reel master tapes by Carl Saff at Saff Mastering. Featuring cover art in full color for the very first time. (Comes w/download code)

Chicago greats Canadian Rifle are back with their 3rd full-length album. Since 2006 these punk vets have been blasting out their blend of rough & ear-splitting melodic punk rock that is unmatched. Definitely contender for record of the year. In a world of indie grunge posers, Canadian Rifle are back again to show you midwestern punk rock is still alive & well. Members of Ambition Mission, Fourth Rotor, Sorespot & more. (Comes w/ download CODE) 400 Black, 100 Magenta vinyl.

The last remaining Awful Man (ex-Witches With Dicks) songs finally see a release! These punk gems were supposed to be on a split 12" with another rad Boston band, Ex-Planets. Well, both bands broke up after a long time of procrastinating the release, so we canned it. Now they’re finally out, splitting a side of a tape with essentially the same band, Life Hacks. Which is the new band from the Awful Man/WWD camp that probably broke up before I even put this up. But they rule & these songs are what you’d expect, only a little slower & more melodic, like old Clash or Oi! stuff. Digital available on bandcamp. (Tape includes download code) First press limited to 30 copies on Black/White split Cassettes.

Two of Long Island’s best bands bring two new songs each for this dope split. This was supposed to be 7" vinyl, but again- it got canned & became this short-run tape.

Members of: Agent, Polygon, Halfway to Hell Club playing 90’s style alt-punk/indie jams. MOUTH are back with two skull-shattering sludged out tunes to melt yer goddamn ears off.
