DO YOU BOOK DIY SHOWS?-All of you who book shows across the United States or actually anywhere in the world, get in touch. Trying to build a good network of DIY venues/promoters for Asian Man Records bands. So get in touch if you can help with booking. email@example.com
TRADES: Anybody live in the bay area?? Near San Francisco? Want to trade stuff for Asian Man cds, shirts, etc. What free stuff you ask?? Basically
anything..if you work in a restaurant, theater, any type of entertainment like arcades, batting cages, amusement parks, blah blah....anything. Let's trade!! Anything we have at Asian Man is up for trade. BOOYAH!!
Happy Wednesday. Let's get started.
We are going to put out the new record for a band called THE ATOM AGE. Have you heard them? They hail from Oakland, CA. and consist of 5 young men playing horn tinged rock and roll heavily influenced by ROCKET FROM THE CRYPT. Think of a 1960's punk band like the SONICS revving it up to the 21st century and you'll have a good grasp of what the ATOM AGE are all about. It's rare to see young guys influenced by this sound.
The new album is called "THE HOTTEST THING THAT'S COOL". It's going through the finishing stages of completion, but we hope to have this thing out this summer. Followed up with a lot of touring. We put up a little teaser track(rough unmastered version) for you to listen to here:
Let us know what you think. You can check out more of their tunes here:
They also released an album called KILL SURF CITY last year that we will be re-releasing on VINYL in APRIL. YAY!! We'll keep you updated on all the goodness.
DAN ANDRIANO IN THE EMERGENCY ROOM....
Friends, Dan has finished recording a 7" that we will be releasing sometime in either March or April. There's two new tracks and we will be pressing on WHITE, BLUE, and BLACK vinyl. We're gonna have some package deal that will perhaps include an exclusive shirt or something fun. So yup.. stay tuned for that info..
Last week I mentioned the band PRIMARY. For those of you who missed it, here's the info. again. Features members of Gnarboots, Shinobu, and the Pillowfights. All members grew up going to Mormon school and this is them playing crusty hardcore versions of the songs they learned in school.
The 7" is called ARMY OF HELAMAN and it comes on random colored vinyl. We made 500 and it's a one time pressing that will be sure to go down as a cult classic.
Check out a track right here:
Yes, brutal is the best description.
Just got off the phone with Barry from Joyce Manor. He tells me that they will be touring with ANDREW JACKSON JIHAD for almost a full month starting in April. It's so very exciting to be perfectly honest. This tour will consist of a lot of east coast dates. I will post them once the band gets me the itinerary. YAY!!
Hopefully most of you have received your classics of love album by now. I'd love to hear your feedback on the record. I've made it no secret that this is one of the best albums I've heard in many years, so I'm curious to hear what others think.
Ok, that's it for this week. be well. Count the typos, let me know how I did.
