The Smallest LightDaisyhead is made up of Zach Chiarizzio (bass/vocals), Michael Roe (vocals/guitar), Curtis DuRard (guitar) and Chad Burroughs (drums). The band’s sound takes listeners back to the heyday of the 90’s post-hardcore/alternative rock and early 2000’s era of Revelation Records while injecting their own unique edge and style. In 2013, they released their debut EP, I Couldn’t Face You, which helped established the band as one of their scene's most promising newcomers.
In the fall of 2013, Daisyhead joined No Sleep Records and released a split EP with Have Mercy early the following year. After touring in support of the release the band entered the studio in the fall of 2014 to record their debut full-length record, The Smallest Light.
"The Smallest Light is a record with thoughts shared by each member of the band, which makes it so much more special to me," says Roe. "We wanted to be sure our first LP was one we were all really proud of, and that’s exactly what it is. It’s a pleasure to be releasing a record alongside some of my personal all time favorite records. I can tell that this record would not nearly be the same if it wasn’t this exact lineup. Everyone equally shared the responsibility of making it what it is, and that becomes apparent when you learn more about the meaning behind the songs."
After several years of touring and EP releases, Daisyhead has arrived with the debut fans have been waiting for. From the infectious and anthemic jams of “Take” to the massive sing-along hooks in tracks like “Lacking Basis” and “I Didn’t Deserve This,” The Smallest Light proves even further that Daisyhead will be a staple in the scene for years to come.1.

Continental Obscura: From Birmingham to Bellingham (Book)Exclusive 7” Vinyl Record Featuring Rare Unreleased B-Sides From Manchester Orchestra And Minus The Bear
"Ryan is one of the greatest photographers working today.” - Ben Gibbard (Death Cab For Cutie)
“Ryan is an exceptional talent.” - Hayley Williams (Paramore)
Celebrated rock photographer Ryan Russell has announced plans to release his first travel photography book, “Continental Obscura: From Birmingham to Bellingham,” via No Sleep Records.
Known best for his ability to brilliantly capture timeless photos of some of rock’s biggest acts, from Death Cab For Cutie and Against Me! to Paramore and Blink-182, Russell recently tackled a different subject entirely for “Continental Obscura: From Birmingham to Bellingham.” In the summer of 2013 he embarked on a life-changing, cross-country journey, moving from his native city of Birmingham, AL to the Pacific Northwest town of Bellingham, WA. Russell documented his trip, capturing the back roads, ghost towns, national parks and historical sites of America with stunning photos of everything he saw.
“Continental Obscura: From Birmingham to Bellingham” will also include an exclusive 7” vinyl record featuring rare unreleased B-sides from Manchester Orchestra and Minus the Bear, two bands that Russell has shot extensively over the last several years.
"Ryan is one of those rare photographers that can truly put you at ease while he takes superb and entirely honest photos,” says Cory Murchy of Minus the Bear. “A master at capturing the most fleeting and candid of moments, we always look forward to working with him so we were extremely honored to be asked to be apart of this project."1.

Paul WalkerConsisting of Patrick Kindlon (End of A Year, Self Defense Family), Chris Villeneuve (drums), Nick Cogan (guitar), Cory Galusha (guitar) and Pat Wynne (bass), Drug Church is the sound garbage makes when thrown off a roof into the dumpster your dickhead boss rented for your underpaying contractor gig. Come back in a few weeks and steal the copper piping because there's no other benefit to the job and you're probably getting sick from asbestos, so to hell with it.
Borrowing heavily from bands like Seaweed and Quicksand, Drug Church released their debut, self-titled EP in July of 2012, the perfect record to listen to as you skate home from your night shift cleaning up puke in the bathroom of a Steak & Shake. It even scored the band a spot on Alternative Press’ “100 Bands You Need To Know” list earlier this year!
2013 rolled around the guys took a break from delivering pizzas and entered the studio to record their first full-length, Paul Walker; surely named for their secret obsession with ‘Varsity Blues’ and ‘Eight Below.’ And the thought of letting these dudes wild again in the studio scared the shit out of No Sleep President Chris Hansen; rightfully so!
"No Sleep offered us a bunch of money and suggested producers to record this LP with and we said, 'Bro. You forgot the struggle, you forgot the streets,” Kindlon says. “We're recording this as the coregods intended: Quick and nasty.' So what's what we did. Pushpit."
Nonetheless, the guys somehow managed to crank out ten of the gnarliest tracks you’ll hear all year long, including the new song, “Donny’s Woods.”
"For everyone who ever thought about faking their own death, we present 'Donny's Woods' a song about how quickly people will forget about your ass," Kindlon tells AltPress.com.
One thing people won’t forget though is how awesome Paul Walker is...oh and the album is pretty good too!1. Thinking About Joining Drug Church

Save Yourself, Start AgainWhat began as an acoustic side project between the Transit vocalist Joe Boynton and guitarist Vinny Comeau in 2010 between touring has lead to a full-time band over the course of the last year. The duo signed with No Sleep Records in late 2012 and entered the studio with co-producer Gary Cioffi, Jr. (Transit, Misser) in early 2013 to record their first full-length with drummer Aviv Marotz, guitarist Mat Morin and Bassist Mike Moschetto in tow.
Once in the studio Comeau departed the band, leaving the rest of the guys primary reign over the songwriting and direction of the new material, resulting in a bright and airy collection of ten beautiful indie-pop tunes that exhibit a range of styles and moods, from upbeat power-pop to solemn folk, which any fans of bands like Death Cab For Cutie, Circa Survive, Maps & Atlases and Rilo Kiley will undoubtedly adore.1.

HeadswellSainthood Reps got their start in Long Island in 2009 and currently feature Francesco Montesanto on guitar/vocals, Derrick Sherman on guitar and Bradley Cordaro on drums. Influenced by bands like Sunny Day Real Estate, My Bloody Valentine, Mogwai and Built to Spill, the band blends an eclectic mix of indie rock, post-rock, post-hardcore and alternative rock, creating a unique brooding sound that grabs hold of listeners attention with each riff and verse.
The band released their debut album, Monoculture, in 2011, which found them further tapping into their influences of 90's alternative and emo and transitioning from a instrumental post-rock band to the loud passionate rock band they were destined to become.
In 2013 the band signed with No Sleep Records to release their sophomore album, Headswell. Continuing on their musical path of lush, distorted guitars and penetrating lyrics, Sainthood Reps' latest effort incorporates an array of intricate styles like the abrasive aural assault of "Shelter," the subdued atmospheric track "Fall" and the grungy riffage of "Run Like Hell" that bleed together creating a cohesive experience that fans will be happily surprised by.1.

The Things We Think We're Missing (Out Of Stock)According to Balance and Composure, they can be loud, quiet and everything in between. A pretty apt description in a nutshell. Once you get down to an intricate school of thought, the lyricism of singer Jon Simmons shows things in a different light. Having all met in the Philadelphia suburb of Doylestown, PA through mutual projects during their high school years, Balance and Composure was formed.
A sonic assault melding influences such as Sunny Day Real Estate, Neutral Milk Hotel and Nirvana, their 2011, critically heralded debut album, Separation, adhered to the band's namesake. A cohesive listen of anthemic and melodic guitar blitzes with poignant lyricism, rhythmic thrusts and an abrasive pop knack in its overall deliverance, Separation helped establish Balance and Composure as one of underground rock's most promising newcomers.
Following their debut, Balance and Composure toured continuously over the next several years with the likes of Circa Survive, La Dispute, Touche Amore and Title Fight. In the Spring of 2013, the band embarked on their first ever U.S. headlining tour with the recently reunited The Jealous Sound as support. After selling out venues in Chicago, Los Angeles, Boston and New York, it was clear their popularity was at an all time high.\
Picking up where Separation left off, Balance and Composure return once again to push the boundaries of their music with driving riffs and intensely passionate vocals on the band's long-awaited second studio album, The Things We Think We're Missing. It's the type of record that makes listeners pause and reflect, evoking moments of happiness and sadness over the course of thirteen songs.1. Parachutes

Where Have All The Merrymakers Gone? (Out Of Stock)Available For The First Time On Vinyl!
On Exclusive Clear Vinyl Limited To 1000 Copies
Includes Liner Notes And Essay Written By Singer Sean Nelson
Nearly two decades after its release, Seattle indie rock band Harvey Danger’s cherished debut full-length album, Where have all the merrymakers gone?, will be released on vinyl LP for the first time ever via No Sleep Records.
The Vinyl packaging for Where Have All The Merrymakers Gone? will feature new artwork, designed by band members Aaron Huffman, Evan Sult and Sean Nelson, that features the same house where the band lived together during their early years - as depicted in the original cover art - now updated to reflect the passage of time.
Originally released in 1997, Where have all the merrymakers gone? catapulted the young band to stardom with the massive radio and video success of their anthemic hit song “Flagpole Sitta.” The album has since sold over half a million copies with the single still receiving regular airplay on radio stations across the country.
For many critics, Harvey Danger’s history begins and ends with “Flagpole Sitta.” However, a revisitation of Where have all the merrymakers gone? reveals an album that transcends it’s most famous song with music that is smart, sardonic and dynamic and a band that was far more than simply a “one hit wonder.”
Harvey Danger emerged from the garages and basements of mid-'90s Seattle playing music that walked a line between indie-rock and pop-punk, with an uncommon emphasis on the clever, heartfelt lyrics. They never sought worldwide notoriety, but managed the best they could when it was thrust upon them. Simply put it was four kids, Aaron Huffman (bass), Jeff Lin (guitar), Evan Sult (drums) and Sean Nelson (vocals), who created a song and an album that made a mark on rock music and whose pleasures have only deepened with time. In preparation for the upcoming release, singer Sean Nelson wrote a foreword for the vinyl release, looking back on the album and its unexpected success.
“Under the long shadow of 17 years’ worth of memory, I must say that listening back to the 10 songs that changed everything for us is a bracing sensation. To hear the person you were when you weren’t yet who you are now is to understand how little you understood, and to recognize how little you even could have understood. This is doubly bracing when you consider that the person you were then had everything riding on the depth of his understanding. It’s tempting to be hard on your past self, the one who made all those idiotic mistakes, who scorched so many friendships, who insisted he knew exactly what we was doing while steering car after car into ditch after ditch. And yet, temptations aside, it feels a lot better, and in a much bigger way, to hoist hindsight’s binoculars to your deteriorating eyes and spy something you love.” (full essay from Nelson can be found in the liner notes of the vinyl LP).1.

I'll Keep You In Mind, From Time To Time (Out Of Stock)Hailing from Canterbury, England, Moose Blood was formed in 2012 by close friends Brewerton, Mark Osborne, Glenn Harvey and Kyle Todd. United by their passion for music and love for mid 90’s emo, the band set out to create a sound that was distinctly their own. Since their inception the band has released two EPs, Moving Home and Boston/Orlando, and a split 7” with labelmates Departures with their new label No Sleep Records and has toured with bands like Appleseed Cast, I Am The Avalanche, Major League and Dads. Two short years after forming, Moose Blood returns with their impressive, debut full-length record, I’ll Keep You In Mind, From Time To Time.
“I'll Keep You In Mind, From Time To Time is everything that we've been working towards since the start of the band in 2012,” says drummer Glenn Harvey. “I think there is a much more personal and honest feel to this record than on anything else we've done up to this point. Seeing these songs turn from ideas at our practice space to a finished 11 track album has been an incredible experience. We're all really proud of this record and we can't wait for everybody to finally hear it.”
Moose Blood aren’t afraid to wear their hearts on their sleeves. Produced by Saosin guitarist Beau Burchell, I’ll Keep You In Mind, From Time To Time is replete with heartfelt, yearning lyrics about life and love that exude vulnerability with a comforting warmth. The record moves through waves of emotion from the pensive opening balad “Cherry” to the follow-up upbeat tempo of “Anyway,” sailing through the mounting crescendos of “I Hope You’re Missing Me” to the memorable, driving rhythm of “Swim Down.” With each chorus and riff, I’ll Keep You In Mind, From Time To Time draws listeners in with its unrelenting honesty and intense passion. 2014 will undoubtedly be the year Moose Blood makes their everlasting mark on the alternative rock scene.1.
