I just finished updating our online store with all sorts of new distro items. Since the majority of the new stuff we have is Canadian, it’s probably new to you, and you should check it out if you feel so inclined. You can visit our online store at blackwithsap.limitedpressing.com.
Speaking of which, we have decided to run a contest for the next two weeks. Anyone that orders anything from the online store will be entered into a drawing to win a test pressing of our latest release, the We Were Skeletons/ мища split 7″. At the end of two weeks, we’ll select one person at random, and send you your test press free of charge. This is the first time we’ve ever run a contest, and depending on how well this goes, we may continue to run them in the future.
p.s. Go download the new We Were Skeletons song right here. I’m crazy about the more pronounced Fugazi influence.

Defeater is a band that probably doesn’t even need an introduction. They are truly one of the leaders of modern hardcore in my opinion. This is their new album, due out in a week or so. On this album, the band refines their already polished sound even further. At times melodic, at times dark and brooding, this album is always intense, passionate, and intricate. To top it off, Defeater has written 4 acoustic songs to end the album with, which are all very good. The contrast of the heavy songs and acoustic songs makes for a very interesting and rewarding listen. Best hardcore album of 2011 so far? I’d say so.
Edit: At first, I thought that song 10 cut out before it was supposed to. Max has informed me that this is the way it’s supposed to be on the album. Apparently, in the context of the album’s overarching story, the speaker gets pushed into a train, so the song ends. Don’t quote me on that though.
- In label news, we finally got the Adobe Homes/Beau Navire split 7″s. Thank you to everyone who preordered one, you’ll be seeing them very soon. You can order this split for only 5 bucks right here. If you reeeaaally want to hear the songs before you order one, you can download them here. Also, we’ve now got an exclusive мища shirt in a preorder package for the We Were Skeletons split. Check that out here. If you already have a preorder and want a shirt, email us at email@example.com and we’ll make it happen. Also, we’ll be announcing some tapes in the future that we’re really excited about!
