SLOWTRIP - BLUR, EP - OUT DIGITALLY TODAY!

SLOWTRIP's debut EP, BLUR, is officially out on all DIGITAL platforms TODAY!

STREAM & DOWNLOAD IT HERE : http://hyperurl.co/Slowtrip_Blur

-----------------------------------------------------------

The EP will also be released on limited edition vinyl on July 13.

Forming from all corners of Los Angeles' inner city, SLOWTRIP is made up of L.A. natives and hardcore stalwarts Alfredo “Tank” Pedrozo (still active in Rotting Out), Martin Alcedo (ex-No Bragging Rights), John Alaimo (ex-The Greenery), and Dan Mayo (ex-The Greenery).

Upcoming shows:

JUN 2- Dipiazzas (Long Beach, CA)
JUN 13- Tiki Bar (Costa Mesa, CA) w/ Eye the Realist // IntheBackground // Like Adults

Though the members of SLOWTRIP all came from hardcore backgrounds, the band takes on a new identity as the combined influences of grunge, shoegaze and stoner rock infiltrate the band's new sound. Self-described as “L.A. Crunch Rock”.

SLOWTRIP formed in the Spring of 2017 as members of each band reached out to each other with aspirations of continuing their musical journey. Spending most of the remaining 2017 year writing and demoing songs; SLOWTRIP confided in Anchor Eighty Four Records as a partner in releasing new music under the newly minted band moniker.

SLOWTRIP entered the studio with Scott Goodrich (Culture Abuse, Southpaw, TSSF) at Nu Tone Studios to record their debut EP, Blur, which was mastered by Mike Kalajian (Saosin, Moose Blood, The Plot In You).

What others are saying about Slowtrip:

"There’s a delicious hard crunch to the quartet’s leaden, harmonized guitars, and, playing the loud/soft dynamic adroitly, their second single “Follow” whiplashes you back to the ’90s."- Buzzbands.la

"Slowtrip's songwriting is a hazy, dream-like burst of melodic rock more in line w/ sugary grunge and shoegaze (grunge-gaze?) than anything remotely mosh."- No Echo

2nd Pressing - GRAYSCALE, "What We're Missing" LP
Vinyl LP_Baby Blue 3.jpg

Produced by Gary Cioffi (Transit, Misser, A Will Away), Mixed by Phil Dubnick (Transit), and Mastered by Brian Gardner (The Story So Far, Teagan & Sara, Kendrick Lamar); WWM is the album that started it all for Grayscale. Seeing them open for huge headliners, touring the country, and eventually landing a spot on the Fearless Records roster. This classic album is a must have for any Grayscale fan. Now back in stock for a 2nd pressing on Baby Blue vinyl, limited to just 200 copies.

Blending pure, raw emotion with elements of alternative rock and punk roots, <b>Grayscale</b> has spent the past four years crafting their own unique loud and catchy sound. Delving into their deepest personal thoughts and experiences, lyricists Collin Walsh and Dallas Molster call it as they see it, no matter how brutally honest. The band’s bouncy rhythms and memorable hooks will stick in your head on first listen, and their relateable lyrics and stories will have you singing and
screaming along in no time.

Tracklist:
1. Tense
2. Palette
3. Midwest
4. Say Something
5. Change (Alternate Version)
6. Catholic
7. Bloom
8. Irish Curtains
9. August Love

THE TRADITIONAL RELEASE b-side song "220" FOR HURRICANE RELIEF

A message from The Traditional:

Hey guys. We really felt that we needed to try and do something to help the people who were affected by the recent hurricanes. People are still in need of help, and it's going to take a lot of time and resources to rebuild communities. Through touring, we have made a ton of friends throughout the years, some of whom live in Houston and Florida. Some of our family members have also relocated to these areas in recent years. We are releasing a B-side from 'The Queen of Heaven' called "220" and we are donating the proceeds to help all of the victims of these storms. Cody at Anchor Eighty Four and the four of us are really excited for you to hear this song and we are VERY excited to be able to do something to help. "220" is available for $1 or "Pay more if you want" on Bandcamp. Thank you all for your support. You guys are the best!

WE SIGNED IN GOOD NATURE (Release New Song)!

We at Anchor Eighty Four Records are very excited to announce our signing of IN GOOD NATURE!

In Good Nature is a four piece post-hardcore outfit from Worcester County, Massachusetts. The band was formed in June of 2016 when guitarist/vocalist Sean O'Laughlin and guitarist/vocalist Tim Sullivan began writing and recording together. After working through several songs, the two introduced Mike Brunelle (bass) and brother, Josh Sullivan (drums) to the band.

"We're stoked to be signing with Anchor Eighty Four for many reasons", says guitarist/vocalist Tim Sullivan. "When we first wrote these songs, we knew that this release had to be done right. The songs we've been writing are too important to us to not get out there and share with the rest of the world. After the record was complete, we began talking to Nick Zoppo (vocalist for Heart to Heart, and aspiring Pro Wrestler) about management, things finally started to fall into place. We're so incredibly stoked to be putting our first ever release out on a label and we're grateful that Cody was willing to take a chance on us."

Head to the band's FACEBOOK page to hear their new single, "Stowaway".
