After the dust settles…..

Alright here we are ready to TCB. I’ve been horrible with maintaining constant updates, forgive me it’s just been a busy year inside and out of the label (new job/new baby/new house) and I’ve been hanging on with both hands as tight as I can. But all the big moves are complete and the dust is settling thus allowing A389 to get back to business. If you see a guy around in a denim shirt, ask him if he’s Superior Alex and buy him a beer. He’s the dude keeping the ship afloat behind the scenes. Grab 2 and give one to Bad Bill Shade as well who has helped a TON. If you see a guy holding court, ask him if he’s Inferior Alex.

HALLOWEEN RELEASES
HOMEWRECKER/PHARAOH/SICKTIRED LPs have begun shipping. If yours hasn’t shipped yet it’s because we were waiting on CDs and shirts to arrive. Well the good news is both have arrived and we’ll be getting those orders out this week. Ditto for the standard version of the NOTHING CD. As always though, something has to screw up and the patches are still delayed so we’ll be sending those to you separately so you don’t have to wait any longer. Distros/Stores please hit up Cobraside to get copies or if you have any questions email me (Contact Page) and I’ll you get sorted out in the right direction.

ALSO PLEASE NOTE: Your LP Download codes NOW Work. Still got some Promo in the works for the rest of October so please don’t be uploading/spreading rips. Thank you. Feel free to grab the albums on our BANDCAMP as well.

Updates Updates Updates

Sorry I’ve been a little sparse, I got promoted/started a new day job which has made my days almost airtight as far as being able to post updates, but I’ll do what I can. Also Reagie had pneumonia so I spent a couple days/nights in the hospital keeping her company thus missing mailorder this week etc. But I’ll be getting orders caught up this week unless the new baby decides to rear it’s head this week…….

ANYWAYS hitting you with these updates:

NOTHING leathers redos will be fingers crossed ready 2nd week of October. Brutal wait I know, but these things happen. Thanks for your patience. They are stitching and screening as fast as they can.

We’ll also be unveiling the fabled EYEHATEGOD picture discs soon. You’ve seen hints. These are ignorant both in style and in price. Super limited edition picture disc with etched bside on the pic disc. Get stoked.

Other than that PHARAOH / HOMEWRECKER and SICK/TIRED releases are on schedule for halloween

BLACK FRIDAY releases are at the plant look for 100 DEMONS / PRIMITIVE MAN / FISTER / THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER /HAYMAKER releases soon.

We also repressed HOMEWRECKER and IRON REAGAN first LPs should have those in soon and are doing a special FOH 7″ for their Australia tour…stay tuned.

And we’ll be announcing the bash shows this Friday. Stay tuned.

Ok late for work. Talk soon.
Be excellent to each other.

PS: If you want to help me during this super busy time asides from buying records you can help out HUGE by spreading the word.

WHERE THE DEMONS DWELL!!!

Watch this first…

Then you’ll understand this…

Nothing is more annoying in label-land when things don’t go right. We’ve been waiting for weeks and you in turn have been waiting for weeks for the NOTHING ‘Downward Years To Come’ leather covers to arrive…and arrive they did! Only they were cut to the wrong size!!! This was a really bad scene. I don’t get legit angry often and my blood was boiling over this one. BUT then I calmed dowm and accepted that mistakes do happen. Everyone is human.

The printer is making new ones as we speak. It’s gonna take a couple of weeks since the leather has to be cut by seamstress, screen-printed and then sewn up into covers.

We need to ask for your patience on this one. If you decide you want a refund instead of waiting please don’t hesitate to send an email over and I’ll be sure to accommodate your request personally. If you’re OK with waiting, standby and I’ll be posting updates as soon as I get them (Facebook/Instagram is the fastest/easiest way to keep up..twitter too but I’m currently locked out)

So these little critters don’t go to waste we’ll be offering a NOTHING DYTC leather CD preorder on Friday with this reasoning in mind: The printer is a good friend of mine and is fixing this error out of his own pocket / costing him out a LOT of money. Granted he’s taking the high road regardless and offered to eat the loss, it still bothers me to see him lose his hard earned money/time when he worked really hard on these.. SO I’m going to give him the money earned from the CD leathers to help pad his loss from having to do the project all over again from scratch. Pick one up if you feel so inclined.

So that’s the news on that. NAPALM CHRIST preorders all shipped today. Be sure to get your HOMEWRECKER / PHARAOH / SICK-TIRED preorders in.

Last records of the year are gonna be 100 DEMONS / THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER and PRIMITIVE MAN/FISTER split. Things will run an autopilot till the end of the year as the new baby will be here in less than a month

Thanks again for your understanding/patience.
Your support is what keeps the wheels turning.

Dom/A389
