Furthermore GOLDUST and WITHERS arrived back home more or less in one piece from their mutual tour three weeks ago. The trip was a very pleasant one and ought to be continued sometime in the future. We at LADR basically ran out of WITHERS' self-titled EP (we still have one 7" + shirt bundle left, anyone interested?) but both Enjoyment Records and the band still have copies left, so you might/should get it from there or order it from Per Koro Records.
But don't sleep on our available tunes: AXES, IRON HEEL, GOLDUST and AGES releases are all ready for instant purchasement at our store. And we'll have some new stuff coming in the not too distant future - keep your eyes peeled for this!

Furthermore we've heard that Cleveland's AGES finally have the mastered songs for the b-side of the Sleep On It 12" - let's keep our fingers crossed everything with these masters is ok so we can eventually start to get the songs to the pressing plant.
Scheduled next is a co-release with VIOLENT NEEDS RECORDS: the demo tape of IRON HEEL from Vienna. It'll come in a quite fancy packaging and contain three gut-wrenching, down-tempo Sludge/Stoner masterpieces. But more of that later.
Love and rockets,

There are shirt + 7" pre-order bundles as well, limited to only 20 units in total. 10 of these are available through Life And Death Records, the other 10 are available through the UK-based Enjoyment Records.
So: All sizes are only available in very limited quantities!
With their self-titled debut EP, WITHERS from Linz (Austria) are paying homage to heavy music’s abomination on the one and its gracefulness on the other hand. WITHERS’ musical expression is set out to shatter the listener with its colossal riffs, aggressive vocal outbursts and a frenzy of drum hits. In this manner they are evocative of bands like Converge, Cursed or Cave In, who have a similar approach of creating music in the grey area between chaotic Hardcore, Metal and Punk.
This is a co-release with Enjoyment Records from England. Limited to only 200 copies in total, the vinyl will be split between both labels and the band. All records will be pressed on clear vinyl and come in some very fancy packaging!
