A389 updates – 100th release, Midnight Mass Magazine etc
There’s a lot going on over here so hold on to your seats…
A389 PRESENTS: MIDNIGHT MASS MAGAZINE
We’re thrilled to announce our first ever printed publication! 32 page half/size magazine in full color featuring interviews with INTEGRITY (Dwid and A2 revisit the Araca years), COUNTDOWN TO OBLIVION (Chris Colohan revisits his time spent in CTO), ILSA (vocalist Orion compiles his list of all time favorite VHS horror movies) and an artist profile/feature on SZYMON SIECH.
Also included is a four page companion to the A389 MMXII DIGITAL MIXTAPE/SAMPLER where you can wrap your head around all the releases we have planned/scheduled for the rest of 2012. This will be an adventure in itself as this year’s compilation has 51 tracks for you to sink your teeth into. Lots of new and rare tracks as well.
For more information on the A389 MMXII DIGITAL MIXTAPE/SAMPLER visit http://www.a389digitalmixtape.com
Release date is set for Monday May 14th, 2012
So yeah, MIDNIGHT MASS will make it’s debut at the west coast A389 Showcase on May 19th, and will be available FREE with mail-order immediately afterwards while copies last.
Speaking of our west coast showcase…it’s coming! You going?
Admission is FREE with RSVP all you need to do is go here:
A389 SURPASES 100 VINYL RELEASES / THE NEW FACE OF A389
My goal for A389 has always been to reach either 10 years or 100 releases. Well it looks like we’ve managed to surpass 100 vinyl-only releases in only our 8th year of existence!
We’ll have some embroidered patches of our new logo available soon and to commemorate this special milestone, we’ve changed our center labels as seen here on our first official post-100th release:
HOMEWRECKER Worms And Dirt LP.
You may notice that the HOMEWRECKER LP is actually A389-101.
Our secret surprise for A389-100 was actually unveiled for the first time yesterday…
Brought to you by the same artists that created the now classic A389-050, A389-100 is still an entity enshrouded in great mystery. Release date will be in early November!!
BUT WAIT…THERE’S MORE!
As promised and by popular demand we’ll be making the first of many classic/out of print A389 releases available once again. Coming mid-June you will be able to order new editions of
WISDOM IN CHAINS Vigilante Saint 7″
TRAPPED UNDER ICE/DIRTY MONEY Split 7″
And as a perfect fit alongside these re-issues, we will be releasing the debut 7″ by Baltimore’s PLEASANT LIVING. Formed by original Pulling Teeth guitarist,
and local celebrity Tony Hare, PLEASANT LIVING deliver an awesome hybrid of catchy oi/punk/nyhc influenced hardcore.
Not what we usually put out around here, but when has that ever stopped us?
Check out ‘All I Ever Loved’ by PLEASANT LIVING below:
And don’t miss PLEASANT LIVING’s record release show June 23rd with Agnostic Front and Sheer Terror in Frederick, MD!
