SLN-143 Is Available To All For Free!

It's here!  The second installment of our Customer Appreciation Releases.  It's a split cassingle that features CAR#1 stars Sophisticated Boom Boom as well as our latest additions to the roster, Great American House Fire.  The Great American House Fire/Sophisticated Boom Boom "Split" Cassingle is totally free.  It's our way of saying thanks to all our friends and fans for the continued support.  They will come with any order through our store while supplies last.  If you want more than one to share with a friend, let us know!  You can technically order one by itself and just pay for shipping, but we have so much good rock music to offer we'd love it if you picked something else up too!  There are also limited quantities in Denver, CO, USA at Mutiny and Wax Trax.  Finally, each band will have these on hand at shows until they're all gone.  There are two different color cassette shells to choose from, purple tint or orange, and they of course come with downloads.  GAHF contributes one stellar emo-punk-indie-pop track while SBB adds two anthemic garage-pop-punk tracks.  You can find it in our store HERE or go digital from our bandcamp site HERE.  This release will not be available anywhere else physically or digitally besides the aforementioned places.  An additional note, due to a pressing error the purple tint cassette sequence/sides got flipped.  The orange cassette sequence is correct.  All downloads are correct.  We choose to view it as kind of a fun collectible accident!  2018 has been a busy year at SLN HQ and there's even more coming.  THANK YOU THANK YOU to everyone that has supported us and continues to do so.  It means bunches.  XOXO.  Pressing Info: 100 purple tint cassette tapes (mispress edition), 100 orange cassette tapes (standard edition). Download code included.
