We’ve teamed up with promoter extraordinaire Christian McKnight, and our old friend Adam Fachler to bring NYC the Ska Festival it has long been lacking. Head on over to APPLE STOMP for all the announcements and news on the festival.
We’ve announced the first band, and we coudn’t be prouder than to bring all of you the reunion of Bostons premiere Metal/Ska bastard child THUMPER. They haven’t played a show since the closing show at New Haven’s TUNE INN and we personally cannot believe we’ve got them to reunite for this festival.
Ok we had an absolutely insane 2012, releasing literally 4x more releases than we ever have in a single year.. and topped that all off with our first major label package tour.
Ok so all the TMBG fans can stop freaking out… John Henry is currently in production. Its going to be a slick 2xLP in a nice gatefold sleeve. We would have liked to get this out earlier than we are… but reissues are a huge expense, and apparrently major labels don’t believe in saving anything, so we’re once again tasking our amazing graphics guy to recreate and retouch the packaging. The vinyl plants are slammed.. so we don’t have any idea when this will be ready.. but we’ll get a preorder up once we have somewhat of an idea.
Secondly – we’re working on 3 more entries in our “Double Exposure 7″ Series”.. i don’t want to name any names yet, but its a handful of artists we’ve wanted to work with for years, and some old friends…. all doing some very interesting cover choices. We think you’ll enjoy them…
thirdly – we’re working on a super secret reissue of one of the best 3rd wave ska records ever… i think a ton of you are going to be beyond stoked as soon as we make the announcement :)
Lots of other things in early stages of development as well.. additional reissues, more TMBG stuff, possibly more high profile ska shows & tours, and lord knows what else we can come up with as we hurdle towards release number 100.

We’re kicking off our new Double Exposure 7″ series . The basic gist is this… 2 of our favorite artists on each record and both of them are covering the same band/artist. We’re super proud of the first installment which features two amazing musicians. On the A side is Franz Nicolay (of World Inferno/Friendship Society, The Hold Steady, Against Me!, and collaborator with Amanda Palmer & Leftover Crack etc etc etc) and on the B-side and across the pond is Frank Turner (you might remember him from Million Dead, and singing on the opening ceremonies for the Olympics). Franz & Frank chose to both deliver their own renditions of songs by Engish Playwrite/Singer/Actor/Composer Sir Noël Peirce Coward. The record will be available at the FEST in Gainesville this October, but we’ll be posting a pre-order up in our webstore for those who can’t make it down to Florida.
We are already hard at work setting up additional volumes of this series with old friends, and old favorites… stay tuned for more info!
