still (STILL) trying to get the ones that came out bad reprinted. We will probably ship out the ones that came out fine in the meantime (this week) and might just have to refund people for the bad ones :\

We’re tracking a BUNCH of stuff this upcoming weekend, actually. My personal goal is to have the final master finished by my birthday (mid-October). Planning for an early-2015, MAYBE late-2014 release (if we’re lucky). It’s been a LONG time coming (first started tracking for it in October 2012??). 

Thanks!

Anonymous said: what was the first kate bush song you fell in love with

Hounds of Love.

I like that you used “fell in love with,” because that’s pretty much exactly what happened. 

I bought this compilation at a Starbucks when I was in the 8th grade (2005, 2006) because The Jam was on it and it pretty much opened my eyes to all of my life-long favorite bands lol. “Hounds of Love” was the featured Kate Bush track and I vividly remember being freaked out the first time I heard it.

Anonymous said: How do we keep the neo Nazis and other racist fascists out of punk and hardcore music?

This is something I haven’t necessarily had to deal with directly seeing as the scene I came up in, along with the current scene in Boston, isn’t infiltrated with neo-nazis, but I know this is still an issue in other places around the world. It’s nice to think that most people in punk are against the belief systems of nazis/fascists/racists and therefore hold a majority over such oppressors to run them out of a scene, but this isn’t always the case as these systems are often associated with violence and most “proven approaches” to get these pigs out of punk in the past definitely were not non-violent endeavors. If you know anyone of this practice, it’s best to stand in solidarity with your peers against their backwards “ideals,” and try to shame it out of existence. Unfortunately, neo-nazi and hateful punk exists but the more attention it garners, the worse the problem will get. 

I slept three hours and was in airports all day. Excuse my jumbled response. I will probably come back and edit or elaborate on this in the future when I have more time.

1959 Gibson Melody Maker. Heavily modified. I’ll tell you all about it maybe.

Anonymous said: What were the influences in writing music for Cerce's early releases?

I personally wanted Cerce to be a Cursed / Some Girls ripoff band in 2011.

Can’t say for anyone else.

Anonymous said: Best mic pre?

Depends on what you’re looking to do. One of my favorite pres I’ve used are the ones made by No Toasters. They sound huge and have a great character for just about anything. My go-to at a studio I don’t typically work out of is anything in the style of an API 512 or Neve 1073. 

Had the pleasure of going on the road for a few days with my friends The World is a Beautiful Place and I Am No Longer Afraid to Die running a bunch of digital consoles and other general tomfoolery. Riot Fest was wild. Weeeeee.
