Not Normal Update v. 1000000

Hey true believers,  quick update here.

The Poison Planet - Boycott Everything EP is out.  If you haven't picked this rager up yet, do yourself a favor. 

NNT #015 - Our first co-release (w/ ThirdXParty Records) is the American pressing of Poison Planet - Boycott Everything. Originally pressed as a 7" on Refuse Records out of Europe for Poison Planet's European tour in June 2011, the US version has been a year long project. The band felt that the 7" format lacked the visual impact that they intended and the lyrics and art had been rushed. The US version is a one sided 12" EP, with a screen printed "B" side. The front and back cover art have been updated and the lyric sheet has expanded from a small jam packed insert that was just columns of white text on a black background to include relevant imagery and additional essays. Lastly, to add to the final package they've included a 24"x36" black and white poster.
Comparisons are consistently made to early 80's Boston hardcore, early Corrosion of Conformity, The Repos, and with this release an emerging element of Dead Kennedys influence.
1st press of 500. Black vinyl with B side screen print.

Stocked up on some awesome records from Perennial and Katorga Works, some tapes from Sorry State, and some other little odds and ends.  Another distro update will be popping up in the coming weeks.

Up Next: Self Abuse, Side FX, Zodiacs

Futuresight: Death of procrastination, bitter homecoming, a network of friends.
