Animal Style Records Launches Pre-Orders For Mixtapes’ How to Throw a Succesful Party and Raindance’s New Blood; Both Releases Drop October 30

By on October 4, 2012


Burgeoning LA indie label Animal Style Records has launched pre-orders for two upcoming releases, Mixtapes’ How to Throw a Successful Party and Raindance’s New Blood.

Originally issued as a free bonus download with pre-orders for Mixtapes’ 2011 LP, Maps & Companions, How to Throw A Successful Party features 9 songs and will be released digitally and on vinyl as a one-sided 12″, limited to 500 copies (100 yellow, 200 green, 200 blue) on October 30. See cover art and track listing below.
Co-vocalist of the OH indie pop outfit, Ryan Rockwell, explains, “So we originally recorded this to come out for free alongside Maps & Companions and we were really stoked on it. It was 9 acoustic (mostly) songs and we’re really happy with them. People have been asking for a while about it being on vinyl and now the time seems right, so the great Matt Medina is putting it out on Animal Style Records! It’s gonna come out at Fest and be limited to 500, If you are reading this on a blog or news website I look forward to reading about how much we suck. We are happy this is coming out on vinyl and you should buy it on all 3 colors because that’s what ICP does and they are rich <3."

Also out October 30 is New Blood, the latest LP from New Bedford , MA hardcore mavens, Raindance. Fused together from the spoils of HAVE HEART, OUTRAGE and THE MILES BETWEEN, Raindance is here to take over the world, or destroy it in the process. Formed in March of 2011 and boasting a sound akin to what it must sound like to be run over by an 18-wheeler, Raindance combines frantic hardcore with bone-crushing heavy rock and roll to create a sound very much their own. Drawing influence from all the best parts of CONVERGE, EVERY TIME I DIE, BLACKLISTED and DISEMBODIED, New Blood, is a must listen for any fan of no-holds-barred heavy music.

Recorded by Jay Maas at The Getaway Group (DEFEATER, NO TRIGGER, HAVE HEART), New Blood is 6 songs of brutal intensity. See cover art and track listing below.
