We got tired of Facebook and Myspace and decided that it would be more fun for us to keep you updated with this new blog… and a lot more fun for you to read this instead of endless bulletins or wall posts!
2010 has been a busy year so far! In january, we put out the melodic hardcore records from TRACES OF YOU and THE PLAGUE. In february, SOME PEDESTRIANS second album (Blackbird) saw the light of day. Fans of The Dillinger Escape Plan and early Poison The Well can’t miss that one! PRESSURE released their first EP in april. These (very) young guys know their classics and inject lot’s of 90’s influences into their songs. A very promising band!
In april and may, we had the chance to release three great 7 inches :
– the LASTING TRACES/WAY DOWN “split” (lovers of modern hardcore will surely dig these two bands)
– the RENO self-titled record made a very good impression! Bands playing this kind of stuff are rare in this area, one more reason to check this band out if you like the early Every Time I Die releases and Converge.
– “The Chance”, the new 7 inch from swedish vegan straight edge band FOREVER YOUNG just hit the streets. 7 songs in a little more than 7 minutes. They keep the essential and get to the point! So old-school, so good!
You can check out and download songs from all these new releases on our Bandcamp page : http://iforusrecords.bandcamp.com
And now, some fresh news! The guys from RENO are already in studio recording their first full-lenght album! If you like the songs from the 7 inch, you will love the new songs as well. Drums and guitars are recorded as we speak, and even with no mix and mastering, it’s already sounding great.
Same for FIRE AT WILL and TOGETHER who put the final touches to their upcoming releases. I haven’t heard the new FIRE AT WILL yet, but the instrumental parts of the new TOGETHER songs already show a lot of progression in their songwriting.
To end this first post, we want to remind you the huge I For Us sale happening on the Disobedience webstore. Older IFU releases can be purchased starting at 1 euro! For those who haven’t noticed it yet, we (the IFU staff) manage this store for almost 2 years now. Besides the IFU catalog, you’ll find tons of records from various labels (big or not) at very nice prices! Check out the shop here : http://distro.disobedience.be
