I'm excited to announce that THE FLEX - Don't Bother with the Outside World 7" EP is now available! Orders will begin to ship towards the END of next week, with the bulk of the orders shipping out on Sat 5/13.

There is no question that the UK is outputting some of the finest hardcore right now. At the forefront of this NWOBHC renaissance is the wolf pack from Leeds, The Flex. With a sound that invokes DYS birthed in the gutters of New York in 1986, Don’t Bother With The Outside World sees The Flex rip through six ferociously violent tracks of pure hardcore aggression. Their Lockin' Out debut.

Stream the full record on their Bandcamp page - http://theflex.bandcamp.com/

Fiddlehead - out of the bloom 7" ep
available now

april 20, 2015

I'm excited to announce that the Fiddlehead - Out of the Bloom 5 song 7" EP is now available.

Fiddlehead is a band from Boston whose members have done time or are currently serving in hardcore acts such as Have Heart, Basement, Intent, and Big Contest, to name a few. However, Fiddlehead have little-to-no resemblance to the aforementioned. Instead, Fiddlehead rocks the way bands like Seaweed, Jawbreaker, and Garden Variety rocked in the 90’s. Aggressive, yet melodic. Dissonant, but not jarring. Fiddlehead’s 5 song EP fits nicely into your summer ’15 playlist.

Fiddlehead - Out of the Bloom 7" EP

New 7" coming out soon on Lockin' Out Records, cassette versions of this record will be available for tour, vinyl dropping sometime late spring / early summer. http://theflex.bandcamp.com/

Red Death are out of Washington D.C. and are comprised of some of the finest mutants of the Newton household.
