New(er) Releases from Volar artists

The New Year is seeing a bevy of releases from various Volar-related artists. Pretty exciting times for all around...

First up, Beaters has both the six-song Exorcise cassette due out this month on Suplex Cassettes, in addition to the "White Hate"/"Venom Warrior" 7-inch on Zoo Music, the latter of which can be purchased through Midheaven Mailorder. In the near future, they'll be included on a CD-R comp from La Station Radar also featuring Ancient Crux, Pink Priest, Ale Mania, Heavy Hawaii, and more, along with a split 7" with Ale Mania on La Station Radar feat. "DC Rails" (AM)/"Dreampunk" (Beaters).

Speaking of Ale Mania, we've still got plenty of their debut 7" here at Volar. In addition to that split 7" with Beaters and the CD-R comp, they've got the "Robust Universe"/"Bayview" 7" out soon on Hell Yes! Records, a six-song cassette on 16 Tambourines Records, and a contribution to the Volar 4-way 7" split feat. Sharp Ends, O Voids, and Spirit Photography.

Ratas del Vaticano, whose "Chido" 7" EP has been flying out the door, are the putting the finishes on their second LP, TIEMPOS DE AUSTERIDAD, the follow-up to Mocosos Pateticos on Siltbreeze, this time on HBSP-2X.

Sharp Ends, whose great debut 7", "Northern Front"/"Ghosts of Chance", was released a few months ago on Hozac Records, also now have the "Crack Trap"/"Loaded Hearts" 7" on Mammoth Cave Records and the self-titled 4-song 7" on Pizza Records. They've also contributed a track to the Volar 4-way 7" split also feat. O Voids, Ale Mania, and Spirit Photography.

Spirit Photography, in addition to the 4-way split and the long-in-gestation Circle in the Fire CD/Cassette due out on Neon Aztec, will be going in soon to record some new tracks for a 12".

Fresh & Onlys recently put the finishing touches on their LP for In the Red, finally entering a proper studio with the legendary Tim Green at the helm. Woodsist recently issued the "Second One to Know"/"Hated or Loved" 7" in December. We've still got a handful of colored copies of their Volar split 7" w/Dan Melchior...

And speaking of Melchior, the ever-prolific artist has a bunch of stuff in the works, too much to post. Check his Myspace instead...

Gun Outfit recently finished recording their second LP for PPM, and should be sending their tracks over for the Volar 7" any day now...

Under the Covers Vol. 2: A Tribute to Paul Collins, Peter Case and Jack Lee, the split release with I Hate Rock n Roll, is coming along nicely. We've got some exciting unannounced additions on their way in...

And look forward to something soon by the great Lenguas Largas out of Tucson, AZ...
