ILD signs EAST GRAND RECORD CO to exclusive, worldwide distribution deal!

East Grand Record Company was born in the capital of Michigan, forged in a basement record store from the love of independent music. Founded by brothers Mark and Mike Voldeck, with the idea that great DIY music deserves to be heard rather than die out in obscurity. Often resembling a cooperative rather than a traditional label, East Grand boasts an incredible lineup of bands which began with legendary DROPKICK MURPHYS‘ founding guitarist Rick Barton’s CONTINENTAL. Current artists include CONTINENTAL, Celtic-folk-punk heroes THE TOSSPINTS, punk rock and roll powerhouse THE HEX BOMBS, MURDER PARTY!, HIJINX and EXPLICIT BOMBERS. Genres range from Americana to classic punk, but all East Grand bands share common threads of the original punk rock ethos, including DIY mentality, questioning and challenging social and political status quo, anti-establishment sentiment, and maybe above all, “no-bullshit rock ‘n’ roll”!

TRANSIENT: Portland Grindcore Squad Winds Up MASSIVE Tour!

With the release of their self-titled debut LP still fresh, having infiltrated store and distro shelves for public disbursement on September 10th via Six Weeks Records, Portland punks TRANSIENT wrap up the last dates of their U.S. invasion.

“We’re all really excited to tour on the new LP and make it to all of the places we couldn’t last time after the wreck,” states vocalist Krysta Martinez of the voyage.” I know it’s not much of a quote but that’s simply how we all feel.” The “wreck” referred to took place amidst TRANSIENT’s 2011 tour when another car slammed into their van, seriously injuring several members. It was shortly after their recovery that the quartet took to writing and recording their debut album, Transient, which the band venomously took to the masses via its extensive trek of the country.

The skirmish started in Seattle and includes thirty-four shows across the USofA, including a set at the second annual three-day Southwest Terror Fest with Kylesa, Godhunter, Sacred Reich, Landmine Marathon and the two-day celebration of SIX WEEKS RECORDS’ twentieth anniversary alongside Magrudergrind, Coke Bust, P.L.F., Slight Slappers, Capitali$t Casualties and a ton more closing down the tour on November 8th and 9th in Oakland.

TRANSIENT’s current tour itinerary is now mostly complete, but several shows are still being locked down. Anybody living near one of the TBA dates below who has access to a venue or simply feels like having these fine grinders infiltrate their living room or garage is encouraged to do so! Please send any show possibilities to transientbrutality @ gmail.com or dave @ earsplitcompound.com.

TRANSIENT’s self-titled debut LP was recorded at Soundhouse Studio with Brandon Fitzsimons (Wormwood), and unleashes a jagged, caustic, punk-fueled grind attack, carrying out sixteen acts of abrasive and enraged socio-political angst in just over twenty minutes, which has been championed by journalists around the world over recent weeks.
