Now that the 6X2X12" split, Black Orphan 7" EP, and Audacity 7" EP are about to go out, we're sending off the next three records.
First up is another co-release with I Hate Rock n Roll, a year-in-the-works tribute compilation to Paul Collins, Peter Case, and Jack Lee of the Nerves, the Beat, the Breakaways, Plimsouls, et. al. Fortunately we took our time with this one, as we're incredibly happy with the results. Eighteen of our favorite bands around doing their own takes on the material. You can hear the Mantles' "A Million Miles Away" and Davila 666's "Hanging on the Telephone" at www.myspace.com/volarrecords, and Grass Widow's "Walking Out on Love" and So Cow's "Working Too Hard" at www.myspace.com/ihrnr. Many thanks to all the bands for their contributions, we couldn't be happier.

VOLAR10--Stalins of Sound 7" EP
500 7"s, 100 on red vinyl, 400 on black.
One of the joys of running this little label is the opportunity to work with friends and their new projects. Stalins of Sound began as a side project a few years when core member Hadi wasn't busy in the great San Diego punk band Dissimilars. His obsession with Slayer, the Spits, and synth-punk all came together, and I'm excited to see him pursuing this. Look for a tour in late October, including some shows with Ryan Wong's Destruction Unit (who will be releasing a 7" on Volar in the near future).
