BOILERMAN "Doing Great" 7" out now and streaming at A.V. Club

Posted on October 8th, 2015

Greetings friends,

I'm very psyched and proud to announce the new Boilerman 7" is in stock and ready to ship. As #1 Boilerfan I think this is some of the best shit yet and the perfect segue into their upcoming LP (which is finished and heading to the plant this week). Anyway, here are the essential details:

• Stream it at A.V. Club.

• Mailorder from

• Bundle with s/t 10" and save a coupla bucks.

I'm trying to hustle getting ol' b-man in front of as many ears as possible, so any internet-love you give is very much appreciated.

Thanks as always for your support!


A less bleak counterweight to the s/t one-sided 10" released earlier this year, "Doing Great" boils down the hardcore stuff and uncovers a punk band influenced as much by Dillinger Four and Leatherface as it is by Born Against or Rudimentary Peni.

Starting with the title track and ending with a ripper cover of Warren Zevon's "The Factory”, Boilerman reigns in the chaos and delivers a modern "90s style" midwestern pop punk record as good as any out there. It bookends their catalog-to-date and clears the ground for a new LP coming out in 2016.

Members of Earth Girls, Broken Prayer, GIDIM, and more. Clear vinyl packaged in an old-style 7” single sleeve. Released by 86’d Records (US) and All In Vinyl (UK).

Preorder BOILERMAN's new one-sided 10"

Posted on February 3rd, 2015

I'm proud to announce the BOILERMAN self-titled one-sided 10" is now available for pre-order.

The release is limited to 500 hand-numbered clear vinyl 10”es with exclusive splatter colors for each of the three record labels involved: 86’d Records (US), Crapoulet Records (FR), and Waterslide Records (JP)

All pre-orders before the March 3rd release date will include a free copy of FELLOW PROJECT "Basic Axemanship" CD.  We'll also have limited number of the European and Japanese color vinyl variants to choose from while supplies last.

Click to stream the album or pre-order a copy here.

The Chicago trio is back with five new songs that sounds like someone put the Screeching Weasel/Born Against split 7” in a blender and pressed it to a one-sided 10”.  The tracks were recorded and mastered under the scratch title “Dark” along with another three songs slated for a forthcoming 7” single - with the scratch title “Pop” - by bass player Kris di Benedetto.

This material lives up to its dark moniker with a lyrical trajectory that starts with the meaningless of life, moves on to the filth of the material world, and finally lands on the inevitability of death. Dark stuff. But just as the impending single portends hope, so too do these songs; righteous anger, building crescendos, and buried melodies, all coming together to expand what kind of punk can be called pop.
