We're gonna be about as blunt on this as we've ever been. We know very little about Black Mass. Via some messageboard or other we heard a demo of Black Mass recorded in a basement. It sounded like shit but showed incredible promise. We pretty much told them this. They came back to us a few months later with a bunch of recordings done by Jason Sanderson (Rolo Tomassi, Antares, We'll Die Smiling etc). These recordings are amazing.
It appears the band are doing a split 7" on about 32964 labels with Guillotines and Kasa. They will also, most importantly of course, be doing an EP on Holy Roar. 4 tracks of Entombed-meets-The Power and the Glory. Think Trap Them, Cursed, Napalm Death - all things crusty, filthy, grindy. This EP should be out within a couple of months! More news, a new song etc coming very soon!

First up - we made a new Throats shirt to celebrate their tour (with Lavotchkin in tow) which starts tomorrow! Check the gigs section for all dates. Printed on Gildan Ringspun Soft Style (a high quality soft shirt) - this looks awesome - with black photoprint and silver border and font! Only 50 made, and Throatsofgold members get this as part of their package.
Secondly - we have got our hands on some copies of the Guilty Parents ep. Released by Danger Lazer Phaser Razor Records. Looks amazing. Sloppy rock'n'punk. Available now in the shop!

The debut release from Young Legionnaire. This band is made up of Gordon Moakes (Bloc Party), Paul Mullen (The Automatic/ex-Yourcodenameis:milo) and William Bowerman (Brontide, La Roux, ex-Iwasacubscout). You could almost say this is our first ever 'supergroup' release of sorts. Except that this sounds nothing like any of the members previous work - this is detuned, subtly technical stoner indie. It's fucking heavy and loud but catchy and tuneful.
Available for preorder now. Instant mp3 download when ordering (follow onscreen instructions). 100 copies on black vinyl, 200 on creamy yellow and 200 on semi-transparent brown. Get on it. We don't expect this one to be around forever!

We got a very limited number of Jackals shirts in. 7" artwork on a shirt - white print on a Gildan Heavy shirt. Punx. You can pick them up on their own or in a cheapo bundle with the 7"! Hit up the Holy Roar store for these!

Now up for preorder! 4 song cdep.
Lonewolves display a fluidity that nods to the tones of Earth, Pelican, Old Man Gloom and Year of No Light whilst grasping the full throttle rock of Coliseum and The Hope Conspiracy. An epic, energetic beast.
1. Hollow (exclusive to cd version) // 2. Shadows and Dust // 3. Death March // 4. Deity
Displaying a new-found confidence and (whisper it) maturity from the band, this record loses none of the bands energy or intensity, whilst exploring far more subtle tones, restraint and vivid colours.
CD comes in white card DVD packaging (photos soon!). 5 different colour vinyl-effect cds. Multiple orders will receive multiple colours, up to all 5 colours. 20 copies on each colour. Limited to 100 copies.
