I’m back from Chicago. I spent a lot of my time on planes and trains reading the new Harry Potter book. There were a lot of people walking around with the book and I thought it was kind of funny. I also got to see the Harry Potter movie on the IMAX screen in 3D and that was definitely pretty cool. We went to see some Roller Derby courtesy of the Windy City Rollers and it was pretty entertaining. The ladies really knocked each other around quite a bit. We also ventured over to Kuma’s Korner whose burger menu is named entirely after metal bands. I had The Slayer which was more of a platter than just a burger and it rocked hard. Scout Niblett is a fan of Hott Doug’s because we saw her and her entourage ordering when we got there today. Big love to Doug’s always. I had an ostrich sausage and a crawfish sausage. The man orchestrates some meat magic.
Anyhow, on to label updates and information:
***Yndi Halda are on their way to Asia. Go see them play or I will reveal Harry’s fate…***
Letterpressed covers for Foxhole’s We the Wintering Tree should be to the cd factory soon, so we’ll have some discs ready for pre-sale and promotion in about a month or so. LPs will be a little further out, we’ve been working on what to do with the 4th side and now have a solid idea.
I should have some more news about Starflyer 59 7″ and mewithoutYou LPs momentarily…thanks for your patience.

The new test pressings for mewithoutYou’s Brother, Sister LP sound great. I’ll be putting it up for pre-order later today. We’re in the queue for color vinyl pressing so it should just be a couple of weeks until they ship out. I’m excited to finally have this ready to come out.
The Starflyer 59 Ghost of the Future 7″ should be shipping in about a week or so. I was hoping to get them out earlier, but there have been some issues at the factory causing some delays. It should be worth the wait.
In other good news, the curse has been lifted and we now have copies of Aspera’s Back When Love LPs. It’s been a super long time coming and this is definitely an amazing record. It has some of the last songs that Aspera ever recorded before their end. Now members are in Philadelphia’s Blood Feathers (Box Theory) and NYC’s Favourite Sons (Vice). The cover painting of the band is truly amazing.

We have covers ready for the first 2 7″ in the Starflyer 59 Ghosts of the Future series. The vinyl is supposed to be arriving later this week or early next. Chris, Will, and Matt at HYMY Industries really did a great job mixing special metallic ink for one of the silkscreen covers and using some really nice old wood typeface for the letterpressing. Apparently they blazed through the silkscreen process and did all 10 covers at once.
New stampers have arrived at the plant for mewithoutyou’s brother, sister. New test pressings should arrive in the next day or two. We’re hoping all is well because we’re in line for the color vinyl press.
