Red Scare Industries has a few releases they’ll be churning out for Record Store Day. I can’t write it up any better than Toby already has so I’ll just let you get the info straight from the source:
Red Scare has some neat 7″s comin’ at ya for RSD. YES, Record Store Day is silly, but in the spirit of “more hustlin’ and less hatin’”, we’re gonna be team players and take part in the festivities. Basically, it’s like this: it’s up to us to save the music industry and we have the three fuckin’ bands that are gonna do it. There’s The Menzingers “I Was Born“, Cobra Skulls “Live At The BBC“, and Masked Intruder “Incriminating Evidence: 2011 Demos“. Pretty great, right?
Here’s the funny part… so, long story short, the music industry have always been about a buncha dicks bullying the little guys. Record stores and chains have historically tried to strong-arm labels into giving them free shit and money in exchange for carrying their records, etc etc. Those were the days, right?!? Well, the mean record stores all went outta business and their shitty practices died with them. Except now the same assholes run Record Store Day! Cool story… where was I? Oh yeah, we made all these great 7″s for you guys but Trey Anastasio and Jethro Tull took up all the “official” RSD release slots, so TECHNICALLY the Zingers and ‘Truders 7″s come out April 14th, but they will be in stores the same time as the sacred Record Store Day stuff. I don’t fucking know, man, but these 7″s are pretty limited and pretty great, so get on it. As a special dealie for those who can’t get out to stores, we’re doing a bundle for all three releases with Interpunk. There’s only like 40 bundles though, so good luck with that.
As always, this stuff will be available in digital formats, so hit iTunes and whatnot. You can also visit our webstore too.
