Toys That Kill cancel/postpone(!) Europe tour

10 Apr

Posted by: Todd C

Some pretty lame news here. We had to cancel our upcoming Toys That Kill Europe tour due to a detached retina in my right eye. When the doctor diagnosed me last week she rushed me into the retina specialist for emergency surgery that same day. I told them I was going to Europe next wednesday and they both replied with “No your not! If you get on a plane you will lose your eye!”. It felt like a knife through my skull. I feel some horrible emptiness inside when canceling shows but this takes the cake. It’s gonna be tough to imagine where we should be every givin night for the next month. The great shows we are missing and the fun times that should be having. I’ll have my right eye to keep me company at least. It’s so hard to get all of us,due to work schedules, to go to Europe and we were seconds away. Bad timing to say the least. They said I was lucky to not be blind in that eye already so there is some positives here but still…shit! Very sincere apologies to every promoter who booked a show and especially Benny & Fanski/Klownhouse for booking the tour and the Rockstar Records/Aachen crew for their help overseas. We will try to make it up asap!” -Todd C.

Update:April 2014 will is the planned makeup time.

Screeching Weasel-How To Make Enemies and Irritate People LP!!

24 Jan

Posted by: Todd C

The 6th Screeching Weasel studio album rises from the dead again! Some would consider this the second “last” Screeching Weasel album. Riverdales we’re right around the corner at this point so it makes sense that this album is even more Ramones-inspired than the last. Mike Dirnt ( Green Day ) filled in Vapid’s shoes, for this album, after his departure. Recut for the best vinyl pleasure by Lucky Lacquers and the best SW art rework to date by Riccardo Bucchioni!!
Deluxe gatefold jacket & 4 limited vinyl colors! BUY NOW!

Treasure Fleet-Future Ways out now! Limited white vinyl!!

06 Dec

Posted by: Todd C

Treasure Fleet “Future Ways” white vinyl shipping now. Limited to 300.

Wanna hear something totally lame and totally awesome at the same time? Ok cool! Rumors have been running rampant about white vinyl being the crappiest sounding vinyl for the last few years. So when I was at Bill Smith Custom Records telling Kevin Smith my order for Future Ways would be a first pressing of white vinyl I remembered to finally ask him. I said “People keep saying that white vinyl is horrible sounding but I can never tell” and Kevin responded with “People are full of shit”. In fact,according to him, white vinyl (and most opaque colors) are superior to transparent and virgin vinyl.

You don’t care?!? Chalk it up as a fuckn fun fact jabrone!
