“Destroy Nate Allen was recently presented with an opportunity to make our first professional studio album featuring the amazingly fun Gnarboots (Asian Man Records) as our backing band. The album will be recorded in California to 2” tape at The Atomic Garden, run by Jack Shirley who plays in Comadre. We’d like to invite you take part in this epic adventure by choosing one of the rewards to the right, essentially pre-ordering the new album.
Two of the songs from this recording session will be featured on a split 7” vinyl with Blaster The Rocket Man, who play sci-fi, mind-altering, horror punk. They are one of our favorite bands ever!”
Merry Christmas from Down the Line! Sorry that we have been quiet. The next issue is in the works – but it will still be January by the time it comes out. There are some great stories in the works – but we’ll just have to leave you in suspense for now :)
We have also been a bit slow on posting music-related news recently. We’re coming up with a plan for bands, labels, fans, anyone to be able to email us news and have it posted to the site. Everything seems to be going Facebook these days, but it seems like some news tidbits get lot in the rush viral George Takei jokes and Castlevania requests that fill up Facebook streams. If you are a musician or fan and want your news featured on this site, feel free to email us a notice.
We also have some music reviews in the works, as well as some other projects. There are some great releases being worked on now that we had some part in. Can’t say more until there is some kind of official word, but loo for some cool re-issues in 2012.
With that, I’ll leave you with one of the all-time classic modern Christmas tunes of all time:
Have you been looking for a quirky, fun way to enjoy Christmas tunes? Sounds Familyre is again releasing a free Christmas compilation, one song at a time, just in time for Christmas. Songs by Ortolan, Dan Zimmerman, Aaron & Whitni Roche, and The Singing Mechanic are already up, with new ones being added each day until Christmas. Volumes 1-3 are also available for purchase. If Volume 4 follows the trends of past volumes, it will only be free for a limited time – so grab the tracks now.
