The Sound & Fury Festival has announced its full 2012 lineup, which you can check out in the replies. The festival is being presented by No Sleep Records this year and features Blacklisted, Touche Amore, Basement and many more.
Mixtapes has released a joke album - which is 26 songs and about 40 minutes - of songs that were recorded during the recording process for its upcoming debut full-length, Even On The Worst Nights, for free download. The joke album is called Songs To Start A Revolution To and it has been released under the band name "Sundrinker." Mixtapes wants you to know that "nothing about this is serious so don't expect any good songs or anything that's like our real music." They add that they can assure us "that No Sleep Records is very happy that we took their money for recording and also came out with this."
The Topshelf vs. No Sleep war has ended and resulted in this: A 20-song compilation featuring rare songs from the labels' bands available in select Hot Topic stores on May 22. Check out all the details here.
No Sleep Records will be doing a digital-only reissue of The Wonder Years' first full-length album, Get Stoked On It! The reissue will be remixed and remastered and come out May 15. Check the replies to see the new artwork.
Edit: The chat is now over! Thanks a lot to Chris, Jeff and Seth, and thanks to everyone who stopped by.
Jeff Casazza (owner, Run for Cover Records), Chris Hansen (owner, No Sleep Records) and Seth Decoteau (owner, Topshelf Records) will be chatting in this thread at 7 p.m. EST / 4 p.m. PST. Stop in and ask the guys about their respective label's success in 2011, their plans for 2012, and their favorite type of pizza.
Chris will be under the blue name "NoSleepRecords," Jeff under "thisisntworking," and Seth under "TSR00Seth." Have a great time!
Over what seems to be the past couple months, I've been working on a story of sorts looking at the formation and rise of Chris Hansen's No Sleep Records. Today, I'm proud and honored to share that story with you. Looking a bit at the Chris' earlier days and how No Sleep has helped shaped the current musical landscape, I also talked to members of The Wonder Years, La Dispute, Touche Amore and Balance and Composure about their respective experiences as a part of the No Sleep family. You can read the story in its entirety here.
Following up our chat with Josh Terry, we are now excited to announce another industry chat right here on AP.net. Chatting with us on Thursday, April 5 at 7 p.m. EST / 4 p.m. PST will be Jeff Casazza (owner, Run for Cover Records), Chris Hansen (owner, No Sleep Records) and Seth Decoteau (owner, Topshelf Records). You can come by and ask the dudes anything you want about what it was like to raise their respective independent labels from probably dirty, smelly apartments to prominence in the current scene, about what they have going on in 2012, about their tattoos, about what kind of pizza they like and what they do right before bed each night. See you all on April 5!
