The Ratas del Vaticano "Chido" 7" EP and the Ale Mania "Lustful Fistful" 7" both start shipping next Monday. For those who don't know, Ratas is a pretty amazing punk band out of Monterrey, Mexico, whose Mocosos Pateticos LP was released earlier this year on the distinguished Siltbreeze Records. If you happen to be near Mexico, you can catch them this Friday playing with Vivian Girls.
I'm also incredibly proud to be releasing the debut 7" by Ale Mania, the brainchild of Andrew Montoya and Jeremy Rojas of the Sess and Beaters. Two incredible tracks here, "Lustful Fistful" and "Vomit Pig," which you can check out here. They'll have another 7" in the near future on Hell Yes! Records out of Italy, and a split with Beaters as well.
Also, looks like we'll be pressing a limited to 300 color run of the Beaters "Fishage" 7". Beaters also has the "White Hate" 7" due out soon on Zoo Music, and you can them on tour in a couple of weeks on the West Coast with Spirit Photography.
Oh, and you can catch Ale Mania playing their first show in a while (and with new live line-up) this upcoming Saturday at the Casbah w/Cold Cave and Nite Jewel.
