New things

We now have two beautiful represses of Old Flings - Spite and Indecision - Unorthodox on some crazy new colors. 

Also out now is the Milky White 7" and the Crosseyed cassette. 

New things.

It's been a little while since I have posted here. We have been busy.

We have a new 7" from Manalive (NJHC) with members of Ensign, Kill Your Idols, Nora, and a bunch more.  It's great 90s style HC. 

We have a  new split 7" from Old Flings / The Fake Boys.  Both bands are absolutely killer. Pick this up.

We did a vinyl version of Muscle & Bone's steller EP with a bonus song and redesigned artwork from the amazing Nate Powell.  He is a NY Times bestselling comic artist and it was a pleasure to get to work with him on a project.

Coming up next:

We have a repress of Old Fling's Spite in the works, a cassette version of Colour Me Wednesday's great record I Thought it was Morning, a split demo cassette for Fever./The Kids' Crusade (both have members of This Routine is Hell) and an LP of This Routine is Hell's Howl for the States.

Gut Feeling 7" is finished!!

This thing is finally done and ready for you guys.  It's absolutely stunning.  Over the top screenprinted and die cut packaging. 3 vinyl colors.  This is the most extravagant thing that I've helped release.

Gut Feeling is a North Carolina hardcore band consisting of various members around the region (ex-Catharsis, Undying, Torch Runner, Nightbear, etc). Musically these guys deviate from the previous more metal-laced endeavors and the only part that really carries over from the previous is top notch song-writing, structure and musicianship. Gut feeling does a great job bringing back anthemic hardcore in the vein of bands such as Champion, Comeback Kid, Modern Life is War, etc think fast polished hardcore punk with melodic guitar overtones, a tasteful spattering of gang vocals and sing along parts. recorded in late 2012 by Kris Hilbert at Legitimate Business and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege and released digitally shortly thereafter.

We are very excited to announce our first release of 2013.  We will be partnering with our good friends at Headfirst! Records to release a deluxe 7" for NC's Gut Feeling.  Gut Feeling feature members of legendary NC hardcore bands Undying and Catharsis.  And they have 4 raging melodic hardcore songs ready to go on this 7".
Oh Geez.  I'm bad at this.  Too much social media.  I try to keep my facebook/twitter up to date. 

Well.  The Old Flings record has been flying off the shelf and popping up on numerous end of year lists and we could be more happy.

Discourse and Old Flings are on the road right now so Ihope you will go check them out in your city.

We released the Muscle & Bone and Family Cat cassettes and the Oddczar - One Word LP most recently. 

Check out the webstore for more on these releases.  bittermelodyrecords.limitedrun.com
Old Flings - Grip
music video
We worked hard on putting this together.  Check it out.  New video coming soonish.
We've got loads going on here.  We are gearing up for the release of Old Flings LP and the Discourse 7".  The fires & floods LP is shipping now.  We don't have very many color copies of the fires LP remaining so act now.

Preorders are up for both Old Flings and Discourse records.  Hopefully they will both be shipping by the end of Sept. and early Oct.  We will also be set up this year at the Fest in Gainesville, FL.







Old Flings - Couch teaser video.  We have a real life music video coming soon for Grip.   Look for it soon.
Upcoming projects. 

We are pleased to be working with Discourse to be releasing their debut self-titled 7".  The lacquers are approved and the art is at the printers.  We are releasing this with our good friends at Headfirst! Records in Greensboro.  And here is the fantastic cover art helmed by Black Cloud Design:



The Old Flings LP is also coming along great.  The lacquer is approved and it sounds great thanks to Dave at Lucky Lacquers.  We are releasing this LP with our friends at Self Aware Records.  Here is the cover art:

We hope to have both of these records this fall.  I hope to have one more announcement before the year's end.
