In release news we’ve got an Anchoress vinyl barrelling down upon us for August 12th. It’s the vinyl presentation of the Crime and Compass EPs we released this year titled, wait for it, Crime & Compass! We’re really excited to get this out, especially since the ravages of vinyl manufacturing truly had their way with us on this one. Honestly, there’s one more box of components to come in and there’s a 70% chance it will contain only poisonous snakes. Here’s the teaser video for their “For A Soft Heart” video that we’ll be dropping in full closer to release time.
You can pre-order the album and stay in the know via the internet home base right here!
Bend Sinister are flexing their road warrior muscles all over Western Canada. Here’s a couple of shots of lucky people from the band’s perspective at the Khatsahlano and South County Fairs.
Check out the rest of their summer tour dates here, and if you’ve yet to catch their video for Teacher check it out!
Blackie and the Rodeo Kings are playing a few festivals this summer. Starting off at the Interstellar Rodeo on July 25th, they’ll make their way all the way to the UK for two performances at the Shrewsbury Folk Festival in late August. You can see the rest of their scheduled tour dates here. Also, if you haven’t been following along on the BARK Facebook page, we’ve been releasing a performance every week from their gig at the legendary Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, TN earlier this year. With it is also a chance to win a South prize pack consisting of South on vinyl and CD as well as a North 7″.
Also, Slam Dunk will be playing at the Squamish Music Festival as well as some West Coast USA dates with Built to Spill. Check them out here and prepare yourself for fun the likes of witch you’ve never seen until you watch this video!
WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! It’s been a long time coming but finally we have achieved vinyl day! Bend Sinister’s Animals is fresh and ready to spin! With a track list that has been distilled from the digital version to a razor’s edge of riffs and rock (and a download card that includes the extra tracks for your time away from the turntable) When the needle drops on lead track “Best of You” expect the adrenalin to spike and whisk you away on the kind of musical journey only a complete cohesive rock vision can provide!
Best of You
I Got Love
Better Things to Do
Thunder and Lightening
It Will Never End
(You Remind Me and Through The Week included on Download Card)
It’s been a long time coming but the day has arrived – Blackie and The Rodeo Kings have released their first full length vinyl!
South has been a wild ride thus far for BARK; taking them to the less often visited corners of Canada, to packed shows at SXSW and some special times in Nashville including a trip to the stage of the Grand Ole Opry! There’s lots of exciting content to share in the coming weeks, but now is definitely a good time to take a moment with that fresh vinyl smell and drop the needle on some warm Americana. Order now in the FU:M store (purchase link below) and/or intensely harass your local record store to get South !
