On June 24, Dischord will reissue Lungfish’s fourth full-length, Sound in Time, on LP. Originally released in 1996, the album was recorded at Inner Ear Studios in Arlington, Virginia by Don Zientara. Long out of print, this version has been remastered for vinyl by TJ Lipple.
You can listen to the remastered version of To Whom Were You Born below.
Milemarker is returning to the States to play Wrecking Ball in Atlanta. But if you can’t make it to the fest (and you should try because the line-up is nuts) the band has announced a short US run of dates. You can see the flyer with the tour dates below.
In addition to the tour, Lovitt Records will be releasing Frigid Forms Sell and the band’s 2015 self-titled 7″ on vinyl later this year. You can hear both those records and more at https://milemarkerband.bandcamp.com/
Dischord Records has announced that it will reissue “Fumble,” the final full-length by Washington, DC’s Scream. It features nine songs recorded in December of 1989 by Eli Janney at Inner Ear Studios.
Formed in Bailey’s Crossroads, Virginia in 1981 by brothers Peter and Franz Stahl, bassist Skeeter Thompson, and drummer Kent Stax, Scream released four albums on Dischord Records. Dave Grohl, a punk kid who grew up in nearby Springfield, VA, replaced Stax on the drums in 1986. “Fumble” was the second Scream record to feature Grohl – the first was “No More Censorship,” which was released on RAS Records – and it includes his sole lead vocal for the band, “Gods Look Down.”
Though “Fumble” was recorded in 1989, the tapes spent a few years on the shelf as Scream split up while on tour the following year. It was only in 1993 – once Pete and Franz had formed Wool and Grohl had joined Nirvana – that the record was finally mixed and released.
Long out of print, this reissue has been remastered by TJ Lipple. The instrumental “Crackman” has been left off of this version to allow for higher sound quality, but will be included as part of the digital download.
Frontman Chris Crisci designed the new artwork (above) featured on the gatefold tip-on sleeve Stoughton Printing made for the album. Housed inside the jacket will be two 180-gram colored 12-inch vinyls made from virgin lacquer. The first disc will be half black, half milky clear with white splatter, while the other will inverse that by being half white, half milky clear with black splatter. Members of the Graveface Record Club will receive vinyl colored exclusively for them.
