Hey! Thanks for checking out what we do. Some updates...
Podcasting has been going down bi-weekly with success! They are hella fun to do and it's cool to get some different perspectives in the mix. The last two got automatically cleared from my hard drive (sorry to Basement Beers and Floral, we shall chat again soon :/).
We are releasing three more LPs within the next few months, once we get a little closer we'll make more officially posts about em. Some really cool music coming out for the first time on wax though.
Choke Artist compilation #3: "Your Breath Stinks Vol. 3" is in process. We've been doing this weird bedroom art/label thing for four years and it's cool to see everything we've accomplished in between all the compilation releases. Each one is like a new bookmark in a book filled with diarrhea. This year was cool but 2017 is shaping up to be even cooler. Here is a link to our last compilation, it's out of physical print but is up for free download. Download
Las Vegas dirty-ska punkers Bitch'n'Dudes stopped by Champ's house to do a session in the basement! This band is not only sick but it turns out they are awesome people too. TBOTW got a chance to play with them at The Meatlocker and they ended up hangin' with us a few days in NJ.
They were on the road for SIX MONTHS. I think they are back on tour again actually? I have no fucking idea, but you should definitely see this band if they are ever in your hometown.
We ended up doing a podcast w this gang when they stayed over. That should be up sometimes next week so check it out!
Hey! We pressed Invalids' first full length album Eunoia on vinyl. 300 black and 50 fluorescent green. The green is already almost sold out so don't sleep if you wanna grab that! If you never heard the album before you can do that here. Buy the LP here.
The band just finished their first West Coast run with The Lunch. They played with a bunch of great bands including Floral, Covet, and Hollow Ran. I play drums in the band and feel weird talking in the 3rd person. Tour was rad so thanks if you were there!
If you click around the site you may find some things to read that mighttt be more interesting than your social media feed. We are slowly adding more and more content to our site...click around and see what you like. Our podcasts are also available on iTunes.
We got 2-3 more vinyl releases up our sleeves for this year as well as some CD releases but I ain't announcing shit right now cause I learned the hard way that vinyl takes forever. Is this a cliff hanger???? Holy shit!

Our latest release comes from the boys in Lobby Boxer. Their new album is now up for free download on their bandcamp. Physical copies will be available in a couple of days if you're still into that jewel case thing.
"Lobby Boxer is a three piece progressive rock/punk band that formed in St. Louis, MO in the summer of 2013. Their interests include rocking, rolling, and shredding."
Catch them in NJ on March 11th with Arrows in Her, Use Big Words, In Angles, County Drop, and Secret Grief. It's going to be a banger.
For Fans of: The Fall of Troy, Boys Night Out, Rock n Roll.
You can read a review of the album right here
The band is hitting the road this March, doing a chunk of dates with In Angles.

Wheels are turning for the LP release of one of my favorite records. Some Divine Ashtray was released by Fero Lux in 2012. Since then the band has gone on countless tours nationwide. Including being apart of Sumerian Records' 2014 Headbang for the Highway tour.
Despite the amazing accomplishment of being noticed by one of metals' biggest labels, the boys were left with a sour taste in their mouth after their nationwide tour. Frustrated and bummed out, I asked the dudes if they would be into a vinyl release of this album while they gear up for their new record. This album is a banger front to back and we're really looking forward to pressing it on wax.
Here is a video for a song from Ashtray featuring Mean Pete of Remembering Never:
