NEW 7" OF CANADIAN OI!
Hailing from Regina, Saskatchewan (Canada), this powerful five-piece has been quickly turning heads, in lots of different scenes. Their vast influences, spanning everything from American Hardcore to early 80’s UK Punk and Oi!, yields an extremely accessible blend of punk that folks everywhere are embracing in a big way!
Although the band only formed in 2013, these seasoned veterans of the scene are taking the Canadian prairies by storm, and have just begun branching out to share their brand of punk with the rest of North America, and beyond. Bats Out! plan to tour America relentlessly on the back of this release, and future singles planned for Fall/Winter 2015.

Ten years in, the relentless Harrington Saints are still hammering away, trekking the globe spreading their working class message, showing people a level of energy that truly takes people by surprise - picking up more and more loyal diehards all along the way. Following a slew of amazing reviews toting their latest 7” single “Upright Citizen” (2014), these tracks are bound to re-emphasize again how truly important this band is.
Like their most recent LP, “Pride & Tradition” (2012), this EP was also engineered by Grammy winning producer/engineer, Michael Rosen. Their partnership with Rosen, as well as their long-time friendship and partnerships with Pirates Press Records, Longshot Music and Randale Records are testaments to the integrity and importance of this band, and the impact that they continue to make.
Just in time for their fourth European Tour (October), here are ten inches celebrating ten years of Harrington Saints. Ironically, their tenth record as well. Pick one up now, so you can scream along when they come to town!
DEBUT 7" OUT NOW!
The Struggle formed in 2013, when members of various punk and Oi! bands from the north of England wanted to bring something new and fresh to the punk scene. The original intention was simply to write and record a few songs, but the chemistry between the band members was so good that they decided to continue writing material and has started playing shows. With the addition of Chris from Crashed Out on vocals the band's line up has been embedded and whilst interest may initially come from the band's history, the songs themselves are strong enough for THE STRUGGLE to stand on their own two feet.
"Core Tex Selector" is the debut EP from THE STRUGGLE. Core-Tex records in Berlin is a punk rock institution; known and respected worldwide. THE STRUGGLE wrote this single as an anthem that speaks for their friends at Core-Tex, and the lifestyle they represent - well-dressed urban soldiers, and the sound & style of the street. The B-side, "Bore Me", decries the cultural and societal brain drain that happens when the masses spend all day sitting with their eyes glued to the screen, putting the boot in with a pounding punk rock beat.
OUT ON 12", CD & DOWNLOAD!
For so many, for so long, Darkbuster (pronounced DAAK-BUST-AH in the proper Boston accent) was a staple in the punk rock landscape - worldwide. For Boston punks and skins, they were, and remain, essential. While this record may have taken eight years to complete, it is truly a testament to how important this band is.
This is a record that can be loved and appreciated equally by a fourty-something who knows every single classic Darkbuster tune and has seen them a hundred times, or a fresh-cut teenager who hears them for the first time.
As 2012’s “Illuminator” (the debut album by Lenny Lashley’s Gang Of One) continues to gain the highest of praise, Lenny really shows here that he’s at the top of his game. It is for that reason that so many other amazing musicians have supported him, and this project in particular, to help make it a truly standout record. The musicianship and songwriting on this album really speak for itself. Give it a spin, and you’ll be singing along in no time…
