Wow! June really got away from us! We’ve had tons of things going on over here which is probably what made me forget Junes update.. yeah probably… anyway, here’s a two for one special titled June/July. For starters, we released a few things in June and threw up a few preorders. Released in June and available now in the MBR webstore is JERK! – Welcome To Sleepaway Camp 7” (available on Black or Opaque Red Vinyl) Proton Packs/Zoanoids Split 7” on Translucent Green Vinyl (Red is available through our buds at Hey Pizza Records and Both are available through I Buy Records! We also released the Cd version of the Ricky Rochelle Full length “So Far, So Good”. We also did preorders for new full lengths from Stinking Polecats and Ratbones, both bands are titans over in the Italian punk rock scene.

Coming this month (July) we have the proper release of Ratbones and Stinking Polecats, both are available on 2 different colors of vinyl as well as on Cd. On top of that we have a double dose of killer Brazilian punk rock from Rotores and the Yodees! We’ll also see the debut release from Nevadas own teenage sensation “The Lunkheads”. If that’s not enough, we also received some intel that the AVEM Lps are ready at the Canadian pressing plant. You can expect that soon. 

Punk Rock Raduno is right around the corner and we’ll be sponsoring it again, so we’ll have some of the Lp comps available after the festival. Be sure to catch our own Beatnik Termites, Stinking Polecats, Giant Eagles and the Yodees playing the Raduno this year! If all of that isn’t enough you can rest easy knowing that we still have several aces up our sleeves to close out this year. Also while we’re here, We would love to see everyone at Mom’s Basement Fest in Youngstown, Ohio on October 1st at Westside Bowl! There’s 11 killer bands on the bill. Tickets will be available soon through the venue so keep your eyes peeled for those.

We’re starting to begin work on the annual Mom’s Basement Christmas Party. If you know any bands who want to submit something or any bands who you’d love to see on there, reach out and let us know!

Cheers and beers!

Hello everyone! It’s may 2nd and we are insanely busy over here at the label! It’s gonna be a busy one with several releases, plus we made some really cool announcements recently. We’ll be starting off may with a really cool release and distro update. The Twister cd “The Best Of Our Worst” comes out on 5/6, on top of that we have a big distro update coming from striped music that day too! As everyone probably knows, pressing plants aren’t exactly reliable these days, we should have 3 vinyl releases coming this month, we have the debut full length from AVEM which is hilariously called “Three Birds Stoned”, that’ll be available on Lp and Cd through us and on Cassette from Memorable But Not Honorable! Then we also have the JERK! – Welcome To Sleepaway Camp 7” along with the Proton Packs/Zoanoids split 7” that’s being co-released with Hey Pizza Records and I Buy Records! You can expect a killer Monster Zero webstore update somewhere in there as well.

We also made a few announcements as well, We recently welcomed Rotores from Brazil into the MBR family. You can expect a full length from them in the near future. We also picked up a fresh young bunch of dudes from Utah called The Lunkheads, this album sounds like it should have been released on Mutant Pop in the early 2000’s! We also just officially announced a new supergroup joining us called The Phase Problem! The band features Flav Giorgini of squirtgun fame on vocals along with a few other heavy hitters from other killer bands. Lastly, we just announced Mom’s Basement Fest on October 1st at Westside Bowl in Youngstown Ohio. There’s lots to be excited about these days. Keep your eyes peeled for more announcements and your great releases!

Up right after that is the Twister – The Best Of Our Worst cd, the official release date on it is 4/22, the preorder is going strong now though so get the killer two sided shirt design while you still can. We’re still waiting on the JERK! – Sleepaway Camp 7” and the Proton Packs/Zoanoids split 7”. Those are currently in pressing plant limbo along with the Manarovs full length and Passport vol.5. Same goes for the debut full length from AVEM! Speaking of JERK!, they hit the road for a Midwest tour on April 21st so be sure to go see them if they’re in your area!
