DO YOU BOOK DIY SHOWS?-All of you who book shows across the United States or actually anywhere in the world, get in touch. Trying to build a good network of DIY venues/promoters for Asian Man Records bands. So get in touch if you can help with booking. email@example.com
TRADES: Anybody live in the bay area?? Near San Francisco? Want to trade stuff for Asian Man cds, shirts, etc. What free stuff you ask?? Basically
anything..if you work in a restaurant, theater, any type of entertainment like arcades, batting cages, amusement parks, blah blah....anything. Let's trade!! Anything we have at Asian Man is up for trade. BOOYAH!!
HAPPY FRIDAY friends....
The KEPI GHOULIE and DAN P and THE BRICKS pre-orders are up on the asian man site. WOOT WOOT
The new KEPI GHOULIE record gives us more of the same pop punk power that we have grown to love, but his evolution as a song writer promises that "I Bleed Rock N Roll" will be considered his best yet.
13 tracks total. There is also a pre-order package option with a limited edition TOTE BAG that comes in RED. Vinyl is on assorted colors and for those who still love cd's, we've got that too......YAY!!!
DAN P and the BRICKS delivers 12 tracks of pure SKA. No PUNK/SKA, just straight up dance til' your feet hurt SKA. 10 piece band with a 5 piece horn section, organ, and huge harmonies. The vinyl is on assorted colors and of course good ol' CD. ENJOY...
PRE-ORDERS for DAN AND KEPI will ship on NOVEMBER 21st or sooner if the vinyl comes in before the expected date. :)
I am proud to announce the first ever METAL record released on asian man. Yes, you heard right.. METAL.. Like SABBATH esque metal. Chicago-based quartet, LORD, plays a loud and punishing brand of metal. Vintage sensibility, coexisting with progressive modernism, guides the listener through a menacing, inter-woven guitar assault laid atop a megalithic rhythm section. This conceptual journey, on their Asian Man Records debut release, features Asian Man veteran Rob Kellenberger (ex-Slapstick/Colossal/Smoking Popes) on drums. The album is only on CD for now and is on sale for $5. Hope you will give it a try. If you like killer musicianship, then you will freak out. ENJOY.
1. Chisel Upon Stone
2. Mechanical Morning Star
3. Killing Is A Tribute
4. Iconoclasm (Crushing Idols)
5. Rise Into The Stars
6. In Search of Light
(clocks in at crushing 38 minutes of music)
And finally.. If I were to make a zip up hoodie of a band, what band would you most likely buy? Hmmmm.....
