We have some good news to announce!

Happy Monday! It is a glorious one for us – we have some good news to announce.  We have officially signed a deal with Portland’s own, Danava!!  For the time being, most of you are probably unfamiliar with them.  A demo of “By The Mark” will grace the Invaders Compilation (out 4/25) and the band is currently recording their debut full length, which we will put out this Fall.  Until then you can check them out at www.myspace.com/danava.  They’ll also be doing some Summer touring, which will be announced soon.  Also, if you live in San Francisco, you can check them out this Saturday at the Noise Pop Festival w/ Wolfmother & Parchman Farm – http://www.noisepop.com/2006/index.php  

None of us had the energy or brains to update the site last week after the SXSW madness.  Sorry about that.  It was a great time all around.  Special thanks to the Dungen guys for braving what became a hellish travel schedule…and a big fuck off to Delta Airlines, who I am officially banning (not that they care).  We also have to give a big shout out to Tom Pisano at Tzell Travel – without him we’d never have pulled it off.  Finally, all the dudes in The Sword, Diamond Nights, The Fever, Elefant, Tarantula A.D. and Saviours – thanks for making it rad.  Our friend Jo Divestar took some photos, which we will post soon.  Check out this link: http://www.nymetro.com/arts/popmusic/features/16481/index.html

Lansing-Dreiden’s new album, “The Dividing Island”, will be out on May 9th.  I know, we’ve already told you a million times, but this time we come bearing gifts.  We’ve posted an MP3 for their new single “A Line You Can Cross”!  Check it out.  Also, we’ll be announcing some April shows in NY this week (4 to be exact).  Keep your shirt on, we’ll have that info soon.

Elefant’s sophomore release, “The Black Magic Show”, will be in stores on April 18th!  They are hitting the road again soon – go check out www.theblackmagicshow.com 

It was mentioned once before, but the Invaders Compilation will be available in stores on April 25th.  The comp features lots of good shit from bands we love (some of it is unavailable anywhere else).  You can go to the Myspace page to: www.myspace.com/invaderscomp  

As always, please go out to a show and support our bands – The Sword hit the road with Torche, ASG & Tarantula A.D. this Wednesday.  Diamond Nights are out with Head Automatica and then Living Things and The Fever are out with Electric Six.
