You thought BART was dead, well, maybe we were just asleep. After a summer hiatus, Bart Records is back with a monster of a release.
Calgary’s incredible Sissys allowed us to release their latest batch of tracks. Guitars like cannons, drums like hammers, I think it took about eight v-4s to get this sound. Loud enough to shut down the bath-houses. Half of these songs are about insomnia, and certainly raucus enough to keep you awake. Stay awake all night w/ Sissys.
We’ve got some very talented friends, and sometimes those very talented friends decide to do stuff for us, which we find both flattering and puzzling. However, it’s this sort of give and take (mostly take for us in this scenario) that makes a community. And a wicked one when it comes to art. So with all of that corny stuff out of the way, here’s the video for Gateway, off of the LP we released this past summer. Enjoy, and Happy Halloween.
Things have slowed down a bit at REWIN HQ in terms of release schedule, but we are still as busy as ever with project. But as always, we are putting stuff up on the store all the time.
Huge thing - we managed to get a hold of the deadstock of all the TOTHETEETH/TOTHEHILT LP “Headfirst” from our OG friends at Reluctant Recordings (R.I.P.) Members of totheteeth/tothehilt went on to STALWART SONS and SLATES so it’s great to get these out of the basement and into people’s hands. If you never got one of these, now is the time. This is it for them.
You can grab Revolution Winter releases from a handful of distros. Ebullition should still have copies of the Town Ship 7” and Stalwart Sons stuff, Deathwish now has the SS/SDF split in stock. In the UK, both Not Laughing and SNCL should have most of the new stuff. If it’s not there yet, it will be soon. Do us a favour and clear them out. Get as us if you’re needing Revolution Winter records in your distro.
NEWS: Stalwart Sons / Self Defense Family split 7” Announced
This record has been in the works for a long time, and we’ve been keeping it under-wraps lest it never see the light of day. Well now Revolution Winter is over the moon to announce the split between Cohoes, New York’s Self Defense Family and Calgary, Alberta’s Stalwart Sons: two of the most staunchly forward-moving and stubbornly smart bands separated by the 49th.
We’ve been on tour for around 11 days now in the U.S…Kinda dropped the ball on the whole “telling people that you’re possibly playing shows where they live” thing. Anyways, here’s what it looks like, present, past and future:
May 2 Toronto, ON @ The Central# May 3 Windsor, ON @ The Mansion May…
Revolution Winter is stoked to announce the upcoming release from Ottawa’s incredible Shahman. The sinister twin brothers Johnson, with 8 new songs of the large and the open. Whatever idea you have about what a duo may sound like, toss it right out the window. Shahman wield power like an army, weave immense depth and tension with a near psychic interplay that I assume only twins can attain. Recorded by Steve Laughton @ The Hive during their Western tour in November.
This baby is at the plant as we type, mere weeks away from truly existing tangibly. Listen here. Release date: May 8. Available for pre-order NOW.
Revolution Winter is over the moon to announce the release of the new LP from Tokyo, Japan’s SEGWEI entitled Soul Deep. After a couple EP’s and a split with End of a Year (Self Defense Family), Soul Deep is the band’s first full length; 11 songs of churning revolution summer-style post-hardcore. Rites of Spring is an obvious touchstone, but that does nothing to describe how absolutley cathartic the album is, how mature and heady, how curiously Japanese, how comeplely of its own it is to Segwei.
And if the package weren’t sweet enough, the LP includes a full-size, full-colour booklet of lyrics and photos.
Leap forward in the Quantum Leap, surpassing the selection pressure on the Selection Pressure, crossed the line in Crossin ‘The Line, through the equinox in the Alpha Jerk, become free Freewheel, creeping underground Nethervein, we seeded at Scattering Of The Seeds, to reach the point deep Deep End, penetrating the enemy with Poison Darts, touch God in Ubiquity, returning from the quest at Hole In The Sky.
By placing more emphasis on the spiritual side, the recording of all 11 tracks, 42 minutes to have pursued the possibility of music format agnostic. Rather than a negative status quo, by the imagination and creativity, a piece of the next era!
