Today was quite the day of new happenings from Get Stoked!
First of all, Sink or Swim posted their new EP “Vol. #2”. We’ll be putting a cassette of this out sometime in the near future so keep your eyes peeled! SOS is for fans of 90s punk, the Wonder Years (the tv show), and Salute Your Shorts. Check it out. http://sinkorswimvt.bandcamp.com
Next on the list: We’ll be putting out a tape for Burlington, Vermont’s “The Worst Five Minutes of Your Life”. It’s a 7 song EP clocking in at a whopping 5 minutes. The tape will be release on Christmas, 12/25/13. More info on that soon! Check out a teaser video of the song “relevant” at Youtube. Don’t sue us, we’re just having a bit of fun with some Back to the Future video footage! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lTGy7g3-_Pg
Lastly…. We’re releasing a 2nd release that is titled “Vol. 2” with the second installment of the Vermont Hardcore: Past & Present compilation. We’re just doing a digital release this time around, so check it out and download it! https://getstoked.bandcamp.com/album/vermont-hardcore-past-present-vol-2
Thanks for all the support!
One of the reasons Get Stoked! Records started was to release the H.E.L.L. compilation, a compilation that had roots in Boston and dedicated to help save lives and remember those who had passed away in bike accidents in the city. Even though I currently live in VT, I love Boston and still consider it home. Over this last week, my thoughts have been with everyone in Boston and I’ve wished I could do something to help.
We’ve decided to move ahead with the 50% off record store day sale we’ve been planning on doing, but now 100% of the proceeds will be donated to One Fund Boston.The sale will run for the next week (up until Sat 4/27). Enter the coupon code BOSTON for 50% off all items in our webstore (http://getstoked.storenvy.com). 100% of the proceeds (minus shipping) will be getting donated to The One Fund. Also, the proceeds for all downloads from http://getstoked.bandcamp.com will also be donated to One Fund.
I would push everyone to donate directly to the One Fund or one of the other funds that are setup, but if you want to pick up one of our releases cheap and want the money to go to a good cause, here’s your chance. Please help spread the word!
A lot has been going on at the Get Stoked! Records camp lately. We released Rough Francis’s debut album “Maximum Soul Power” on cassette, which is already sold out and 10K Volt Ghost’s long awaited cassette “The Clubhouse Demo”. The only remaining copies of the Rough Francis tape are with the band at South By Southwest Music Festival in Austin, TX, so you’ll have to get one from them if they bring any back!
In case you are unaware of Burlington, VT’s Rough Francis, they are a wild and dangerous rock’n roll band with the ability to brainwash our youth with impure thoughts. They have already played shows in NYC, Chicago, Boston, Los Angeles and now Austin. Even though the tape is already sold out, the band has CD versions of the album available and eventually vinyl will be pressed. Keep up to date at www.roughfrancis.com.
Even though 10K Volt Ghost has their cassette finally available, the band itself is on somewhat of a hiatus as they search for a permanent drummer. Do you have what it takes? If you do, get in touch with the band though Facebook. You can listen to the demo at http://10kvoltghost.bandcamp.com.
We are also working on releasing Sink Or Swim’s debut EP on CD/Cassette in the coming months. The band features ex-members of Hunger/Crucial Times and current members of Get A Grip playing 90 punk and melodic hardcore akin to 88 Fingers Louie, Kill Your Idols, Kid Dynamite, CIV, Good Riddance and Reach The Sky. You can preview a few tracks from the record at http://sinkorswimvt.bandcamp.com.
We’re having a halloween sale! Hunger 7”s & tshirts and HELL comps are marked down! Also, you can now pre-order the 10k Volt Ghost demo! Listen to it over at http://10kvoltghost.bandcamp.com
Enter trickortreat666 at the checkout to get an additional 20% off your order! The sale is running until this Saturday, Novemer 3rd! Thanks for the support (and please repost!) Thank you!
Hello noble purveyors of web publishing and angry leprechauns! It has been a few months since we’ve had any real updates for Get Stoked! Records, but we are proud to announce that we will be releasing Get A Grip’s “S/T” Full-Length CD by the end of October. Get A Grip is a heavy/groovy hardcore band full of spiteful lyrics from Rutland, VT. They’ve been playing their brand of hardcore/punk since early 2011. After a self-released demo, EP and countless weekend shows all over New England, we figured it was time to help them really get out there. This 10 song CD will be limited to 100 copies and available through our web-store and the band at shows. Please check out a few mastered tracks here:
ALSO! We will be releasing 10K Volt Ghost’s (Scooby Doo Reference) “The Clubhouse Demo” cassette tape before the end of the year. These guys hail from all over Chittenden County, VT and sound like a strange rock orgy of Foo Fighters, Hotwater Music, Super Drag, Piebald and Iron Chic. Your really have to experience them live to understand the pure sonic intellect that is 10K. They’ve played a ton of shows in and out of Burlington and Montpelier and show no signs of stopping (even though their singer just got married). The cassette tapes will be purple and limited to 100 copies. Listen to the whole demo at their bandcamp:
Its update time at Get Stoked! Records! Just to keep everyone up to speed, the No Submission S/T 7” is officially available through our online store and through the Get Outta Town Records online store. This is a one time pressing limited to 150 on pink and 150 on coke bottle clear.
We are also putting out a digital release of Fall Lineup’s two EPs titled “Don’t Think Too Much, Thats What Hearts Are For.” This was a progressive/punk band I was in when I was 18 in my first semester of college. It lasted for about a year. Both EPs are available in one download as “name your own price.” Of course that can be greater than or equal to $0. Just remember how broke we all are!
Also, there are still a fuck ton of H.E.L.L. Compilations available on double 12” vinyl and cassette through our online store! The compilation is also being distributed through Deathwish, Inc. and through Bridge 9 Records. There are also still a few versions of the cassette compilation available through Antique Records. So stop fucking up and get on this!
We’re doing a split label release for the debut No Submission 7” with Get Outta Town Records. They just posted pre-orders up in their webstore. Check it out!
Listen to the 7” here: http://nosubmission.bandcamp.com
Pre-order it here: http://gotrecords.bigcartel.com/product/no-submission-s-t-7-ep-pre-order
No Submission and Direct Effect 7” pre-orders are up now! Both will be a special pressing in a limited quantity, so when they are gone, they are gone.
Direct Effect leaves for tour today with You Blew It! See the tour poster in a previous post. Don’t miss them if they hit your area!
This weekend is the H.E.L.L. compilation release show! Please come out and be there on time! There are a bunch of bands playing so we have to start the show on time and you don’t want to miss the openers. You’ll be able to get the H.E.L.L. compilation on vinyl (including a record release version on black limited to 54 copies). There are two shirt designs that are a collaboration between H.E.L.L. and Art Terror, and screenprinted posters. Also, there’s a really awesome raffle with a bunch of sponsors.
If you haven’t heard it yet, you can stream the H.E.L.L. compilation at http://onehellofacompilation.bandcamp.com. You can also purchase the 2xLP version through http://getstoked.storenvy.com or you can get the 2xLP and a limited shirt design through MerchNOW at http://new.merchnow.com/catalogs/hell. No matter where you get it, all the proceeds are going directly to help H.E.L.L. buy more bike helmets and put together more bike safety programs and outreach.
If you pre-ordered the cassette version of the H.E.L.L. comp through Antique Records, they are still coming! There was a slightly delay on the production side of things and we’ll update you here once they’re available. There will also be some cassettes available through Get Stoked! once the order comes in.
A lot has been happening at Get Stoked! Records lately. Amidst all the preparation for the “One H.E.L.L. of a compilation” double vinyl LP, we’ve also been quietly putting together No Submission’s debut 7” EP. For those of you who don’t know, No Submission features the remaining members of Crucial Times. This 8 song EP in fact has songs that were originally intended for that band. The remaining members of the band, however, didn’t want to see these songs disappear into the proverbial abyss of hardcore/punk songs that once were, hence the creation of NO SUBMISSION.
This 7” is a split label release with Get Outta Town Records, based out of Boston, MA. Get Outta Town Records has worked with bands like The Geeks, Kill Your Idols, Offsides, Nightlights & Paint It Black. Check out the label at http://www.getouttatownrecords.com.The record will be available on opaque pink and coke bottle clear vinyl limited to 300 copies. Test presses should be arriving to us with a week or so and once they are approved we will post information about pre-orders. Until then, you can listen to the entire 7” at http://nosubmission.bandcamp.com. Also don’t forget to like the band on facebook! http://www.facebook.com/nosubmissionvthc
This is a week away! https://www.facebook.com/events/225933590818111/
In case you missed it, listen to the compilation at http://onehellofacompilation.bandcamp.com. Download it for a $5 minimum donation, or buy the 2xLP version for $22 (limited to 500 copies!).
