HARDCORE. In the early '80s, YDI put Philadelphia on the map with their ferocious brand of hardcore. In 1983, they unleashed their debut 7", "a place in the sun", on Bloodbubble Records. "a place in the sun" is a blistering 9-track blast of hardcore fury that holds it's own with "pick your king", the NEGATIVE APPROACH 7" and any other prime example of early American hardcore. Unavailable for over a decade on any format, TKO Records is glad to make this vital piece of American punk history available again.

POST-HARDCORE. YEAR FUTUIRE are a Los Angeles quartet with 2 prior GSL releases and "First world fever" is their debut full-length. The band is comprised of GSL founder Sonny Kay (vocals; ex-ANGEL HAIR, THE VSS), guitarist Rockey Crane (ex-DEAD AND GONE), and the newly revamped rhythm section of Pete Lyman (bass) and Chris Hathwell (drums; also a member of MOVING UNITS). Comparable to the likes of BLACK FLAG, YES, BAUHAUS, DEAD KENNEDYS and BLOOD BROTHERS, YEAR FUTURE's sound has evolved considerably since the early releases and shows no signs of standing still.

HARDCORE. You know it, you love it. YEARS FROM NOW play positive melodic hardcore with seriously heavy nods from GORILLA BISCVUITS and LIFETIME, done with a circa early `90s recording job that sounds like Walter Schreifels was at the knobs. Essentially a discography, "We're gonna need a bigger boat" piles on 19 songs: the band's "So much promise" 7", demo CD-R, 8 new songs and covers by YOUTH OF TODAY and DESCENDENTS. The new songs are definitely an improvement on the band's elder material. It seems like they trade in their occasional dose of A NEW FOUND GLORY-like pop in exchange for an even more generous early Revelation influence; there's almost like a jokey JUDGE/BOLD vibe all over the songs. "We're gonna need a bigger boat" is quite obviously a perfect introduction to YEARS FROM NOW. Now all we need is a goddamn proper full-length already.

POP-PUNK. "forever comes too soon", THE YEARS GONE BY's debut full-length, surely exceeds expectations. Super catchy, yet still edgy, the album is full of hooks and singalongs. For fans of SET YOUR GOALS, THE WONDER YEARS, NEW FOUND GLORY and even BLINK 182.

DEATHCORE. Smashing their way out of the Garden State since their uprising in 2004, YEARS SPEND COLD has proven themselves as a blunt, relentless force throughout the hardcore and metal community. Solidifying their posture through the combination of current death-metal intensity and underlining classic New Jersey hardcore attitude, their sound is uncompromised. Their Eulogy Recordings debut full-length, "moving heaven to hell", will serve as a testament to the band's ferocious sound and steadfast dexterity.

OI/PUNK-ROCK. "good times violent crimes" is 11 songs (and a fistful of unplugged bonus tracks) conjuring the classic early New Hampshire roots of THE BRUISERS through THE VANILLA MUFFINS patented, sugary oi filter. Working class, singalong oi chartbusters with pop hooks mixed with a steel-toe stomp of skinhead ignorance to balance it out. Colored re-press comes housed in a gatefold-cover and includes a digital download card.

Country, folk, rock, punk and influenced by the greatest songwriters of our time.

PROGRESSIVE-HARDCORE/METAL. As you may notice, the early days', heavily mid '90s screamo influenced sound, that helped YFERE to release on renowned labels Ape Must Not Kill Ape and Denovali, has evolved into a more specific, progressive and even black-metal-ish, gritty, dark and hyperactive hardcore noise. Thematically "zirkel" deals with the ubiquity of cycles, which, in the continuous mist of change. The 8 songs reflect on how cycles interweave and construct complex relationships, which dominate our thoughts and actions, how they self-reflexively enlarge and consolidate life, the mind, the world and our existence within and our view on it. Vinyl comes in a nice gatefold-cover and includes a digital download card.

INDIE/EMO-ROCK. YOU BLEW IT's 2nd full-length release finds the band's most mature effort while staying true to their roots. "keep doing what you’re doing" works because YOU BLEW IT successfully channel more direct influences into their songwriting while continuing to show growth. Yes, the record is more accessible because of that and some fans shy away from accessibility for some weird reason, but it’s also more memorable and will ultimately stand the test of time. Thick 180gr vinyl includes a digital download card.
