RED TAPE PARADE
"leap year of faith"
As some of you might know, RED TAPE PARADE were working on their third full length album when their singer Wauz got diagnosed with cancer in December 2012. After he passed away on April 15th 2013, they decided to publish one of the few complete demo songs they have made, which is also the last song RED TAPE PARADE played live last saturday, May 11, during their 'To Wauz! To Life!' farewell show.
"We will hopefully find the time to go into the studio this summer, complete another song and then release it as a 7". But for now we wanted to share this version with all of you. To Wauz. To Life. We were Red Tape Parade."
"I know some magic works"
Light Your Anchor
After LIGHT YOUR ANCHOR released their first single "FALL & STAND", we are really looking forward to the release of their debut "HOPESICK", which will be out June 14, and we do hope you are as excited as we are! This album literally teems with pure energy and vitality! It's anthemic, fast pitched, ultra heavy and saccharine melodic at the same time. Aljoscha Sieg (Pitchback Studios) endowed "Hopesick" with a massive sound, shaping this aspiring new hardcore band's unique vision of tough yet tuneful music.
The proof of our excitement can be found in our store which has been complemented with some fresh pre-order packages, available in different sizes and colors. So head over to our store, pick your "fashion" and be the first to hear what LIGHT YOUR ANCHOR is all about...
Red Tape Parade
Singer Wauz (R.I.P.)
Wauz, singer of Red Tape Parade, lost his fight against the cancer that was diagnosed in December 2012. He was a truly inspring musician and one of the nicest persons I've ever met. My thoughts and deepest condolence are with his family, bandmates and friends. R.I.P., Wauz.

The Haverbrook Disaster
present "The Chosen Few"
So here we go, we're kicking the new year off with a very special release: THE HAVERBROOK DISASTER "The Chosen Few" Vinyl-7inch and Digital Download. This harbinger of their upcoming full length album includes 2 brand new songs which are by far the best we ever heard from The Haverbrook Disaster SO FAR! On their upcoming album there are quite a few other tracks that can compete with this masterpiece of melodic hardcore so I suggest you keep your eyes on this great band.
"Finally being able to release a piece of vinyl is something we always wanted to do. Being a vinyl fan and collector myself, I (Andy) know the feeling of holding beautiful new black gold in hands. A feeling of nostalgia and euphoria you hardly ever get after buying a CD or some MP3s on iTunes. So releasing the first single of our upcoming album on 7" just felt so right and we want to thank our friends over at LET IT BURN RECORDS once again for giving us new opportunities!
Talking about the single, "The Chosen Few" is a very special song, not just because our good friend Jesse from STICK TO YOUR GUNS is doing a few bits on it. It really brings the message we want to spread with this album straight to the point. It's a wake up call for people who lost faith and hope in this world. It's an invitation to join "The Chosen Few" to finally CHANGE something. We are more than stoked over hear at the THD camp for you guys to finally here some of our new stuff!"
Looking forward to hear how this new THE HAVERBROOK DISASTER music sounds and to feel 'black gold'? Well then go preorder "The Chosen Few" right HERE!
LOOKING FOR NEWS OLDER THAN 120 DAYS?
We entered a great new partnership with Aljoscha Sieg & Pitchback Studios.
Start a band! It can be that easy…
Marathonmann’s debut album “Holzschwert” (Century Media) just hit the streets.
Our beloved IFPI just informed the world in their latest report, that for the first time in 12 years the global music revenue rose. It’s only a fragile 0.3% and compared to its peak of $38 Billion the $16.5 Billion of 2013 doesn’t seem to be too impressive. However this is a strong signal that digital music is more and more taking its place. Digital sales are rising, streaming / subscription services are constantly growing and also revenue from licensing has grown a lot. So overall very good news or as the folks at Acuity.Music would put it: Embrace Digital! (...)
