The new, 4 track split will be the final release of the bands Swedish label home, Blackstar Foundation.
Pressed on limited edition 7inch vinyl with handmade packaging, posters, patches and sticker bundles, as well as digitally in the UK on 17/10/14
“So, you have two hard working bands on your label, both have toured intensely for their previous full length albums, and now have material for a couple of new songs. Before we even managed to mention, “split record”, Idle Class and Fights And Fires had already played a couple of show together, and brought up the idea themselves.
Playing in Punk Rock and Hardcore bands often leads to you building an impressive collection of vinyl records. With all members of the two bands having the vinyl addiction, it only seemed right that the new release would be pressed on, an extra special, 7inch. With good old fashioned D.I.Y, creativity and brain power, you are able to make the most amazing creations – That’s why we brought in Josua Rieber, of Homesick Design. When it comes to creativity, thinking outside the box and imagination, Josua is the perfect person to make everything come to life.
The, Fights And Fires / Idle Class, split 7” vinyl will not only be printed on see through clear vinyl, with wine red splatter, but will also be delivered in a handmade, screen printed card box including a poster, lyric sheets and a bunch of stickers.” Emil Bjorkander – Blackstar Foundation.
