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.

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.
