March News Update

I'm sure it's a lame excuse, but March has been a busy month at work and since I sit at a desk and stare at a computer all day there sometimes I just don't feel like it when I come home.  I finally found some time so here goes.

Close Only Counts CD Re-issue

I sent a tweet out on @MXDRecords last Friday the 4th stating that the cd's had arrived.  They have indeed, but the track listing on the discs themselves is all messed up, read completely out of order.  I'm trying to get a hold of someone at the pressing plant to figure out what can be done about this, so if you were wondering why your pre-order didn't get to you this week that's why.  I apologize for the inconvenience and am trying to get it fixed a soon as possible.  Ideally I will be able to send the old shipment back and get a new one with the correct track listing.  If not, they may have to be sold as is which I suppose would be sort of punk rock and make them a little bit of a collector's item.

At any rate, I'll update everyone as soon as I figure out what's going on.

Upcoming Releases

It's been a couple of months since the last MXD releases came out, and I'm finally able to announce some of the new stuff that's coming up.
I've been working on a cassette compilation of Hardcore, Grind, and Punk from the midwest that will include some killer tracks and a few rarities.  As soon as I have all of the tracks, I'll post the track list and release date.  It should be out by late spring/early summer though.

Also coming soon, is a cd from Fort Wayne's Castles who play some surprisingly heavy indie rock and feature current and former members of Metavari, All Nite Skate, and Graves of The Endless Fall.  This will be a follow up to their debut EP which was released in late 2009 and will be a spring release.

Parasitic Twins has been writing and are planning to record a bunch of songs this spring, some of which will see release on a 7", the rest of which will be kept around for splits, comps, etc. Expect to hear more old school hardcore with as little slow as possible.  Coffin Maker is also currently recording 8 songs for a cassette that should see release sometime this summer.  Expect more dark, sparse, ominous tones with occult themes.

I've got one more under wraps that I should be able to talk about shortly, just don't want to announce anything and then have it fall through.
