SURPRISE 042 | PISS TEST – BIGGEST BAND IN EUROPE LP
Portland, Oregon, tolerant Oregon, is having yet another supergroup taking the punk world by storm. After a debut 7″ on JONNYCAT and a split with FIST CITY on DRUNKEN SAILOR, they finally spit out their first full length LP. Fronted by arguably Portland’s angriest man Zachary Brooks (RED DONS, SCOTT BAIO ARMY, SODA POP KIDS) and backed by fellow PDX stalwarts Samantha (DOTTIE ATTIE, NEO BOYS, WIPERS) and Rodrigo (RED SHADOWS, POISON IDEA, AUTISTIC YOUTH) they deliver 13 snotty punk jams that tackle EVERY topic that needs to be tackled. They are the biggest band in Europe. By far.

First press is 500 copies on black vinyl.
All records come with a coupon for free digital download.
The Northamerican press will be out on JONNYCAT RECORDS in April!
FIRST 100 COPIES COME WITH A PISS TEST FRIDGE MAGNET!

SURPRISE 043 | THE MANDATES – S/T LP
THE MANDATES are a punk/power-pop quartet based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Formed in 2010, Matt Sikkens, Jimmy Sixx, Kirch N. Destroy and their drummer, Tahoe, have dedicated the most ambitious few years of their lives to writing the best ’77 pop punk anthems their minds can arrange. Taking cues from classic acts like TEENAGE HEAD, THIN LIZZY, NEW YORK DOLLS and THE JAM, THE MANDATES have forged through their music scene, creating something vintage and yet somehow maintaining a modern appeal. The 12″ follow-up to their first single “Take You to the Dance” Is boasting their most danceable choruses and inspired lyrics to date. This full length vinyl release, produced by Portland punk rock aficionado PAT KEARNS (EXPLODING HEARTS, NICE BOYS, CLOROX GIRLS) is a passionate and earnest endeavour.

First press is 500 copies on black vinyl.
All records come with a coupon for free digital download.
This record was originally released on MAMMOTH CAVE.

THE CRY! – DANGEROUS GAME LP PRE-ORDER!


SURPRISE 044 | THE CRY! – DANGEROUS GAME LP
Portland, Oregon’s powerpop sensation returns with their second album to date and for those of you who thought that they can’t top their stellar debut, I’m sorry to disappoint you but on DANGEROUS GAME they are taking things to a whole new level. Ten new tracks of 100% pure pop drawing influence from all decades of Rock’N’Roll.

“A breathless collection full of high energy songs colored by a punk vocal aesthetic and good old-fashioned rock ‘n’ pop chops. The hooks are strong throughout; the backing vocals are top-notch; the album flows like fine wine with a kick. I predict big things for this album. Anyone with even a passing interest in high-energy pop ‘n’ roll is going to go crazy for your latest effort!”

CANADIAN RIFLE – DEEP ENDS LP up for order!

SURPRISE 039 | CANADIAN RIFLE – DEEP ENDS LP
Deep Ends is the second LP from Canadian Rifle, arguably Chicago’s best melodic hardcore band. The band plays confessional punk with brash vocals (reminiscent of Leatherface and early Jawebreaker) with themes that range from crossing lines when you know you shouldn’t, trying to keep something alive when you’re running on empty, as well as struggles with addiction. Needless to say, it’s pretty bleak in its lyrical and musical approach, but played with an angered energy that’ll keep you fist pumping for the duration. Pretty fucking great for a band with no dreams and no goals.

“For a band that’s literally been flying the banner “No Dreams, No Goals” for about eight years now, these guys sure have made a lot of music. Deep Ends keeps with the melodic (don’t call it pop-punk, motherfucker!), Midwest punk that they’re known for. This is music that’s less for the ‘shirts off, dudes on’ crowd and more for the ‘loner glowering in the back of the bar, leave me the fuck alone’ set.” – MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL

First press are 500 copies on black vinyl. All records come with a coupon for a free digital download.
