• CINDERBLOCK | self titled | LP

    14.00 (24% tax incl.)

    The latest assault of Boston punk madness is without a doubt Cinderblock! Last year this Bostonian punk attack immediately impressed with their killer demo “No Future” and now the punx are back in town, ready to put in the boot with their debut full-length for Brain Solvent Propaganda & Mendeku Diskak. Madness I’m telling you!
    Instantly creating chaos with opener “Disarm”, Cinderblock does indeed deliver the sound for punks, skins and hooligans. Whether you want to go pogo, clench your fists, throw some cold stares and sing along or bash some motherfuckin’ skulls in (combinations optional), anything goes! Followed up by the raging “Blood On My Boots” you know there is no turning back, the energy from these rabble-rousers got a hold of you and your caught in the whirlwind of Oi!, UK82 and hardcore-punk on Cinderblock’s self-titled debut LP!
    Anti -! Anti – everything! These lads are foaming and fuming over nukes, religion, the system, police, disco and having no future. You know, punk stuff, brought with a punk-as-fuck sound that reminds me of a pissed-off Blitz on the roids, with some of that Defiance and Oxymoron thrown in the mix! What a record, seriously, this is nearly 25 minutes of pure mayhem for the fans of that No Future Records sound, though the maniacs into newer bands such as PMS 84, No Time and Bricklayer will get a real kick out of this record as well!

  • (2019 Record Store Release, White vinyl) "burning in water" is an overlooked post-punk masterpiece, a holy grail of '80s Boston rock that is one of the missing links between MISSION OF BURMA and THE NEATS, and later bands like THE LEMONHEADS or BULLET LAVOLTA. An unrelenting, urgent work, this explosive debut album is chock-full of consistently excellent songwriting and impressive, aggressive musicianship. "burning in water" captures MOVING TARGETS at their early peak - like Boston's eager answer to HÜSKER DÜ. Colored (white) vinyl re-issue is limited to 1000 copies.
  • Sorry State is pleased to release Out Cold’s Living Is Killing Me, the band’s final statement in their legacy of pure, unadulterated hardcore punk. For the uninitiated, Out Cold is hardcore’s greatest cult band. They flew under the radar for most of their 20-year run, but for those who understand the band’s importance, Out Cold were a truth, and a benchmark for quality. During the tail-end of the 80s, there wasn’t much activity in the world of fast and raging American hardcore. Out Cold was the big exception. Out Cold’s aggression was unwavering, presaging the 80s American Hardcore obsession that flooded the US in the mid-00’s. Formed in 1989 in the town of Dracut, MA, about 30 miles northwest of Boston, Out Cold would stay true to their formula for tried-and-true 80s-style hardcore until they disbanded in 2010. Releasing a slew of records throughout their career, Out Cold’s discography became extensive, each record just as vicious as the one before it. They are hardcore’s most reliable band. For their genre, Out Cold personifies consistency in the same way the Ramones or Motörhead did. You always know what to expect with an Out Cold record: amazing drumming with in-the-pocket rhythmic intensity; urgent, catchy, and tasteful songwriting; dark, misanthropic lyrics; and huge, memorable vocal hooks. While they’ve undergone several lineup changes, Out Cold's foundation has always been drummer John Evicci and guitarist/vocalist Mark Sheehan. Following 2005’s Goodbye Cruel World, John and Mark recorded drum and guitar tracks for two full-lengths worth of material before Mark’s untimely and unfortunate passing in 2010. Rather than letting these new songs fall by the wayside, the band rescued the session from the abyss with Kevin Mertens, Out Cold’s original frontman, coming in to complete the tracks. Half of these songs became 2013’s A Heated Display, the remaining half comprising Living Is Killing Me. After a long wait, we finally get to enjoy a proper send-off for these legends. Having been almost 15 years since the band recorded the basic tracks, Living Is Killing Me bridges two eras of hardcore punk. They conceived the songs during the height of US hardcore’s resurgence, but in 2019 the tracks have a fresh energy. Kevin sounds as ferocious and powerful as he did on the first Out Cold LP, like someone released him from a block of ice to scream once again. The performances are militaristically tight and powerful: 14 bursts of pure fury. All good things must end, but Living Is Killing Me reminds us why Out Cold is one of the best bands ever to play hardcore punk. Released May 17, 2019 on vinyl on Sorry State Records.

  • Reissue of the second album from Slapshots side Oi! project band, orginally released on CD only in 2004. (I Scream Records)
  • Recorded by Kurt Ballou at God City Studios, "Seizures In Barren Praise" shows Trap Them at their most vicious. Having mastered their art of aural bludgeoning, the album musically stomps and claws with emotion. "Barren Praise" itself is a fictional ghost town version of every non-fiction town" says McKenney. "Lyrically, previous Trap Them releases are all stories from people who had lived in "Barren Praise" before deciding to up and leave. This is the story of those who stayed behind to tell the stories of watching everything unfold..." states McKenney. Upon listening, it's hard not to picture fragments of your own life as part of the chaotic debris that are these fictional lives. The friends, family, and faces of those that make up the ensemble cast of your own life are all there, indirectly. Making "Seizures In Barren Praise" a broken mirror for the world. Exposing every fear, weakness, and wound. (Deathwish Records)
