Long time no update…But now we have a huge one for you.
First: We are ready to release into the wild (in a physical format), the newest album from Austin, TX’s Zlam Dunk. It’s entitled ‘Balcones’ and we couldn’t be more excited to be putting this record out. We here at Mission Social Club were first introduced to Zlam Dunk at SXSW 2K11. After not being able to stop listening to their last self-released album, ‘Noble Ancestory,’ (Pick It Up Here!) the boys, I mean men, of Zlam Dunk were gracious enough to let us give the new album the vinyl treatment. Not only does this album pick right up where ‘Noble Ancestory’ left off, but matured in guitar composition and tracks leading towards the more melodic. Check out the Zlam Bandcamp if you wanna preview some of the record and listen to their first “Nobel Ancestory.” The records are now available in the store and will be shipping at the end of this week.
Next up: Shorty into the year we were approached by Brian Moss about his new project Great Apes. Great Apes features members of Drowning With Our Anchors, Monster Squad, Build Us Airplanes & The Landlords. They are putting forth 2 amazing tracks for a split record with Daikon out of San Jose, CA. We are excited to have All In Vinyl sharing this release with us. It’s always nice to have friends to share records with. We will have test pressings of these records soon so keep checking back as to when they will go up.
Finally: We are extremely humbled to announce that we will take part in releasing a split record between San Francisco’s Hanalei and Chicago’s own Sundowner. As originally announced by Sell The Heart Records out of Santa Rosa, CA, we will be doing a split release which will be out this summer. Details to come on this, but I assure you it will be worth the little wait.
As you can see we’re quite busy over here at Mission Social Club, and although it’s been light on updates lately, expect them to keep coming as we line up even more releases.
