Hey there friends,
in today’s exciting news, we will be releasing a record from GALACTIC CANNIBAL. The album will consist of 9 songs and be around 23 minutes long and it is a 4 way co-release that we are doing with our friends in Encapsulated Records, Lost Cat Records and Hewhocorrupts, Inc. This is a new band made up of members of Direct Hit and Tension Generation. The cover artwork was created by our awesomely talented buddy Josh Davis, too.
…and storytelling is what TWE is all about, they’re a roundtable storytelling podcast which you can download from iTunes or stream on Stitcher Radio at: http://bit.ly/XXpAqu – Thanks for the shout out!
1. Snakewing video premier at the AV Club’s LOUD Column
2. Break Anchor West Coast Tour is all but done (except for tonight in Chicago)
3. Updated label catalog
1. Snakewing video premier at the AV Club’s LOUD column Yesterday we officially released the Easy Action / Snakewing split 7″/EP. It is without a doubt, one of the most impressive records we’ve ever put out in content and in aesthetic, thanks to Shawn Knight’s intensely artwork, pictured at the right: Today we are premiering a video from Snakewing’s song “Ancient Construct Alchemist” in conjunction with, sadly, the last LOUD column at the AV Club, Jason Heller’s long running punk rock / metal / hardcore / extreme music monthly column.
L-R: Kevin, Phil, Cris & Nick
Jason was kind enough to not only give us top billing in the article for the video premier AND a stellar review to boot. Please check out the article, get schooled on some serious metal and then read some of his past columns too, oh and obviously read the review and watch the video for “Ancient Construct Alchemist” HERE at LOUD/the AV Club.
2. Break Anchor West Coast Tour is all but done
(except for tonight in Chicago)
Break Anchor is wrapping up their first West coast tour tonight in Chicago. We’d like to thank everyone for stopping by and supporting them!
Here’s the show info for the Chicago tour date of “the Rolling Blackouts” Tour: http://www.facebook.com/events/149077071917708/

3. Updated label catalog
I try to always include a one page label brochure/catalog with the mail-orders and I have updated this for the spring season. I also include a word search with band names as a fun game to include, and if you take a picture of the completed puzzle and email it me, you can get 10% off your next order…no one really ever takes me up on this offer, but it’s fun regardless….and until I run out of room on that sheet I’ll continue to include them, so, download the latest catalog here …humor me, and get money off your next purchase.
thanks, There may be more news later in the month to announce…there sure are some details in the catalog that will tip you off to them ahead of time. Stay tuned.

just a reminder, Break Anchor’s 1st West Coast tour kicks off tonight in Indianapolis, please check the links below and head out to the shows if they are coming to a town near you. I believe the show on 3/30 in Los Angeles has moved to Ashley’s Bar and Grill from the Slide Bar…if any locals know for sure, please let me know.
Alright world, we’re finally unleashing this monster. You can now Pre-Order the Easy Action / Snakewing split 7″ EP entitled “Dead City” HERE. The record has 4 songs of pure malevolence. EASY ACTION’s first new record in OVER 4 YEARS finds them at their most terrifying. Fellow Detroit band SNAKEWING tow a harder line, rooted more in death metal meets 90′s metalcore. Brutal and crushing would be words I’d use to describe them.
If it matters to you: EASY ACTION features members of Negative Approach & Laughing Hyenas, SNAKEWING features a member of Break Anchor.
ALL THE PRE-ORDERS COME WITH A FREE SNAKEWING FULL LENGTH CD.
I’m not one for too much hyperbole, so I’ll let the music do the talking, stream EASY ACTION’s song “Better Off Dead” from this EP here:
