ANNOUNCING TWO NEW RELEASES ON DEATHBOMB ARC!
These both have been a long time in the planning, I am very excited to finally make it official. The first is a triple LP anthology of my favorite band of all time, rRope. Active in the mid 90s and based in San Francisco, rRope are a noise rock act unlike any I’ve ever heard. Harder than My Bloody Valentine, more experimental and dreamy than your average Touch n’ Go band, they were an incredible force in the 90s California music scene. Their music has been primarily unavailable for nearly 2 decades. We’ve collected all their albums, 7”s and comp tracks and remastered everything. The triple LP comes out in early May, but pre-orders get an immediate digital download of the entire album.
The second is our first exploration into releasing an audiobook. ‘Broken Piano For President’ is the literal books on tape version of Patrick Wensink’s 3rd novel. Read by the author and with a score by True Neutral (member of Foot Village). The cassette has the readings with score on side a, and just the music on side b, plus a bonus theme song called “Call on the Herd”. Guest musicians on the release are Brian Chippendale (Lightning Bolt/Black Pus), Ezra Buchla (ex-Gowns, EMA contributor), and Christina Gubala. Cassettes ship in early April and come with a download code. We also have limited copies of a deluxe edition that comes with a signed copy of the novel.
