Tremors Six Feet Under

A few months back Marcus posted about some new band called Tremors. I'd never heard of them before, but he had some pretty high praise for the band. Despite the fact that he is a jaded old dude when it comes to new music, and he likes Piebald, somehow I still tend to trust his judgment. He liked the record, so I immediately looked to check it out. The band's song on the Striving Higher comp only sealed the deal. Raging hardcore, full on pissed and ready to explode. This is some good shit, and I needed to get my hands on the new Island Songs 7 inch.

The 7 inch was originally pressed by The Essence over in Europe. They were sold out of the limited color vinyl pressing, so I decided to sit and wait for the US pressing from Six Feet Under. The SFU pressing uses a different photo for the record cover, so of course now I want the Euro press as well. Also, the pressing from The Essence contains an additional song! What the fuck!?! Why leave a track off the US pressing?

100 on green vinyl. 200 on black vinyl.

I think it's called smart marketing. How else could a little known Uk label attempt to outsell a major US player? ;o)

I'm still waiting on mine in the mail. Did you just get this or have you had it for a while?

Marcus, at least the download I found online was from the UK press.

VxT, I think mine arrived a couple weeks ago.

Dang, I hope mine didn't get overlooked. Then again I did order it with that Inside 7" so maybe that's the hold up?

Mike said...

Sorry dude. I ordered the Inside 7 inch as well...I just didn't post it here because I haven't listened to it yet. Next post...

Spoke too soon - the package was waiting for me after work. Haha.
