You won’t believe how many AMAZING records we have for you this week!
We are unbelievably stoked to present to you a FIVE INCH record from TANK CRIMES as the undisputed RECORD OF THE WEEK! This (tiny) beast of a record features a song from both ANS and AGORAPHOBIC NOSEBLEED as a tribute to the legendary GANG GREEN!
Check out the three great vinyl configurations as well: “White”, “Ultra Clear”, and “Piss Yellow”!

—————————- Honorable Mentions ————————————–
The first honorable mention this week is a brand new 7” from San Francisco’s very own DEAD TO ME! This elaborate package features a foil binding on a gatefold matte jacket, as well as an 18 page stapled booklet on the inside! If that wasn’t enough, the record comes with two versions of vinyl: “Oxblood” with Gold Splatter and “Orange Crush”!
BAND: Dead to Me

With perhaps the COOLEST band name ever, we bring you the new record from THE PSYCHEDELIC ALIENS entitled “Psycho African Beat”!! Quite frankly, this is one of the coolest records we have ever done, and it comes in two formats! There is a 12” LP version of the record with a 3mm spine matte jacket and 12 page booklet, as well as a 7” box set that includes an embroidered patch, 4 different 7” records, and a mini-version of the booklet- all protected under a beautiful sheet of foam! BRAVO, Aliens!!

NUCLEAR WAR NOW! PRODUCTIONS never ceases to amaze us with their innovative and eye-catching releases, and the new LP from ROOT is no exception! With a foil gatefold jacket, two different vinyl configurations (“Classic Black” and “Ultra Clear” w/ Red and Silver splatter), this is definitely one for the collection!
