In other news we have approved test (FINALLY!) for the FLESH OF MORNING LP! Hoping to see finished product before the new year at this point. Thanks to everyone that has ordered a copy for your extreme patience waiting along with us. I promise it sounds great and will be well worth the extra wait.

‘Harvest Verses”, the debut LP from New Bedford, MA’s WIRE LINES is out now and available on 3 different colors of vinyl in our Limited Run store! I’m super excited with how this release turned out and it’s been awesome to see some a positive reception. The band is already hard at work on their follow up album to be recorded by year’s end.

Up next is another split release with our sister label from the UK, Crew Cuts! A 7″ EP with an awesome band called High Praise that has been kicking around for a couple years now. 5 tracks of high energy hard hitting punk/post HC ala Drug Church for those in need of a modern reference. It slaps as the kids would say (I think that’s what they say.)

We are still waiting for a number of other test pressings to roll in as well. Next up should be the debut LP from Boston/Austin Goth/Cold Wave duo FLESH OF MORNING. Their is currently a preorder up for that one via the band’s own Bandcamp page so check that out for some preview tracks. There will be some surprises coming along with that one so stay tuned.

Thanks as always to those that keep supporting the label and allowing us to continue to release artist that we love and believe in.

HEADS UP! Two new releases are dropping tomorrow AM! First up is the debut 7″ EP from Vermont’s VOID BRINGER. Ten tracks of pummeling hardcore power violence. Also dropping is the debut 7″ from Oakland, CA/Austin, TX hardcore band PLANET ON A CHAIN. Also bringing ten tracks of hardcore but a little different flavor. Brought to you by some names that should be very familiar if you’ve followed HC for the past few decades. Look em up chump.

We also have approved test pressings for the new WIRE LINES LP due out later this summer. Preorders are up for the HIGH PRAISE 7″ EP released with our sister label CREW CUTS from the UK as well as the new LP from FLESH OF MORNING (Via their band camp page only at this time). Lots of stuff in the works so get pumped.

So maybe I forgot about having a website and didn’t give any updates in 2 months. My apologies. A lot has happened in that time though. The Blind Rage store front moved two doors down into a much more spacious location, with windows! We also beefed up the stock on both new and used records, so if you’re near Dayton maybe stop in.

The OH CONDOR LP was released back in May! There was a shop exclusive that sold out in a flash but you can still buy the Coke Bottle Clear or Standard Black vinyl from our limited run store. Check the release page for links to physical and digital.

We also just released BRR 030!!! A new 2 song 7″ lathe cut from CROOKS ON TAPE (Enon, Skeleton Key). This was another shop exclusive released on RSD but will be hitting the webstore soon, keep an eye out for that.

Finally, we have approved test pressings for two 7″ EPs from Vermont’s VOID BRINGER (split with 625) and Oakland/Austin’s PLANET ON A CHAIN (ex-LBAL, Tear It Up). These will be out in a few short weeks! Should have test pressings soon for the WIRE LINES LP. Still waiting on MSPAINT ugh.

Test pressings for the OH CONDOR LP have arrived and sound fucking great! Still pending approval of the band but this should be the next release to drop. If you haven’t been filling along, OH CONDOR is a band comprised of 4 of my oldest friends, two of which I’ve been playing music with off and on for two decades. This is a little bit of a sonic departure for the label, more of a discordant Indie rock thing, not too far of a stretch from a band like HOLY HANDS though. We can’t wait for shows to return so we can book a little Blind Rage road trip for the two bands together.

We are still waiting for a lot of other test pressings and if you follow the socials you probably already know that we are working on the debut LP from Austin/Boston’s FLESH OF MORNING. More old friends making some incredible music. Minimalist synth/cold wave from some punk/hardcore vets. Look them up on Bandcamp and try to track down their excellent demo and lathe 7″, you won’t be let down.

Last week we released the DRY SOCKET 7″ to an overwhelming response, in fact it is damn close to being sold out, so if you haven’t grabbed a copy yet and want to, now is the time. Until next time…

Arpil 9th, 2021

DRY SOCKET’s debut EP ‘Shiver’ is out today! Six tracks of ripping hardcore punk full of sick riffs, fierce vocals and a pounding rhythm section. Recorded by Nicholas Decker at Big Red Studio and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege Studio and featuring artwork by Justin Gonyea. Split release with To Live A Lie & Crew Cuts Records in the U.K. Limited to 500 copies with each label offering an exclusive color, act fast to grab em all.

Meanwhile, we are still eagerly awaiting several other test pressings to show up and finalizing some Blind Rage shop exclusive lathe cuts for RSD 2021, so get excited and start planning your trip to beautiful Dayton, Ohio just in time to be swarmed by the 17 year Cicadas. Fun story, the last time this brood came out to terrorize the populace was during the Not Much More Than Music Festival that was booked by James (Blind Rage) & Alice (Viva La Vinyl). We hated those disgusting little buggers. Another fun bit of information, one of the only bands to play NMMTM fest that is still active today is OH CONDOR, who have an LP coming out on Blind Rage, however back then they were called THE 8-BIT REVIVAL, they wisely changed their name so they would stop getting harassed by people expecting them to play 8-bit chip tune crap. Instead they play discordant indie rock kinda stuff and they’re some of my best friends in the world, so I’m pretty fucking excited for that release.

In other label news, you can now pester your local record stores into carrying Blind Rage titles by simply telling them that they can pick up most of the recent releases from REVHQ! It is a great way to keep your local shops awesome and keep things moving forward. Love you all, now go buy the DRY SOCKET 7″!
