New Almost People tunes! Record release info! Sep 29, 2016

To quote that lovable kid from the Goonies, Chunk, "HEEEEY YOUUUUU GUUUUYYYSSS" in case you have been kicking that hangover for the past little while here you probably already know that the Almost People LP "Songs For Best Friends" is up for pre-sale in the webstore and if you want to hear a couple of tunes there is a Video HERE(thanks Punknews) and a new jam HERE(thanks Dying Scene). For those of you in or around the NC area Almost People's record release show on 10/15/16 is going to be a ton of fun. A number of Anchorless alumni are coming down for the show including Brendan Kelly (of The Lawrence Arms/ Falcon) and Stevo (of The Holy Mess). You can check the details out for yourself HERE.

In other news, hockey is back!!! Was hoping that Russia would have done better in the WCOH but they didn't. Anyways, we digress. GO WINGS!

FEST is just around the corner and can't wait to see everyone down there! We are pretty well represented down there and AP will be making their FEST debut! Anika and Mikey are playing and if you didnt already scoop up a 7" you should, they are almost gone!

Ok, be good, kind and gentle to one another.

Until next time.

Mikey Erg/Anika Pyle 7" OUT TODAY!!! Sep 09, 2016

Guys! The brand new split 7" featuring Mikey Erg and Anika Pyle (of Chumped) is OUT NOW!!! So go pick up a copy (or bundle) from our webstore, stream it from where ever it is you stream, download it via BANDCAMP ...you get the point. It is a really cool record that we are thrilled to have been a part of. Here is link to the WEBSTORE and below is some info on this, our 30th release!

"In July of 2015, while at a studio session for The Rentiers, Mikey Erg and Anika Pyle (Chumped) had a conversation about self doubt and creativity. Continuing to make music can be difficult in the aftermath of criticism or disbandment. They were both feeling a little directionless so Anika suggested they make a pact to create a safe space for sharing songs with each other, to keep creating for the sake of creating. If they sent them to each other, they would have accountability and have somewhere to put them when they were finished. Mikey, being the ambitious rocker that he is, suggested a song a day but they settled on a song a week for the rest of the year.

They ended up writing a full length record each and then some. They encouraged each other, challenged each other and learned from each other and they are both better for it!
This seven inch is comprised of four songs that appear exactly how they exchanged them during their pact. They essentially pulled them straight from voice memo and we pressed them to vinyl. This split is meant to be a celebration of friendship and the triumph of creativity over self doubt. You don't need a studio or a session band or a deadline. Sometimes all you need is a friend. This record will, hopefully, continue to inspire others to make for the sake of making."

We will be announcing the Almost People full length LP next week!

Have a great weekend everyone!!!

The World Cup of Hockey is happening so you know I have a huge smile on!

Your Loss (ex Chumped and Elway) midlife-crisis-tropical-vacation OUT TODAY!!! May 06, 2016

Aloha, today we are so so so so SOOOO stoked that Midlife Crisis Tropical Vacation is OUT NOW!!! Scoop it up from bandcamp HERE , itunes, blah blah blach, stream it steal it but listen to it and love it as much as we do. It is a great record written by some of our very favorite people on this planet (other planets, not so much). If you have been living under a rock or in a van down by the river, or Sumter, SC Your Loss features members of Chumped and Elway and here is what Brooklyn Vegan had to say "...It’s equal parts driving, throat-shredding punk and more mid-tempo indie rock, like if Dillinger Four and Dinosaur Jr got into a car crash and magically morphed into one super band instead of anyone getting hurt. Doesn’t that sound nice?"

Ok, as you were. Be good to one another and we will be in touch soon. OH, We ugh, signed a really cool new band who have a LP coming out this fall and have a sick new split 7" to announce (sorry it is not Drake/Weeknd) that you guys will be excited once you know more. So, yeah. Enjoy and stay tuned for details in the coming weeks!!!

Cheers,
Neil





YOUR LOSS Premiers song on NOISEY Apr 13, 2016

Check out the self titled track to the Your Loss album out may 6th!!!

Your Loss (ex Chumped and Elway) Join The Anchorless Family!!! Apr 02, 2016

Hey hey!!! Working on a Saturday, eh? All good!!!

Today we are super mega pumped to announce that we have signed Your Loss and will be releasing their debut and probably only release entitled "Midlife Crisis Tropical Vacation". The record is fantastic and the people are ok too. It features members of our beloved Chumped and one of our favorite bands Elway. It will be out digitally May 6th.

Read below for some more info on these jerks.

"Terrible songs about terrible people by terrible people for terrible people. Your Loss was formed in 2015 at the corner of No Care and No Talent Streets in Fort Collins, Colorado. Tim and Brian play in Elway, and Drew played in Chumped, which only bears mentioning because now more people will listen to the album. Miles hasn’t been in any bands you care about, which makes him the only punk guy in the band. Our only hope is that we’ll be one of those bands that everyone says is cool to listen to, but nobody really listens to. Y’know, like Chumped. If we are permitted one auxiliary hope though, it’s to use our moderate ability to play songs to get free drinks. Y’know, like Elway. We have no plans of ever touring anywhere near you. BYE."

so long for now! we have a couple more signings to announce so stay tuned and get back to enjoying your saturday cocktails!

First up, we are beyond stoked to welcome GREENHORN to the Anchorless family!!

Whats a greenhorn? Well, it can be a lot of things. If youre an idiot, the word greenhorn could mean a horn thats literally green, but youre smart, so you know just like I do that greenhorn is what grizzled, jaded old veterans call rookies and newcomers to whatever ecosystem of expertise they exist in.

In this particular case, were talking about music. The grizzled, jaded veterans in question are Roger Lima of Less than Jake fame, and Jen Vito of NoMore. Both fixtures in the Gainesville scene, theyve been kicking around for years, taking their respective takes on the central Florida sound all over the world. Enter Sterlo, a dude that this writer had never heard of until he was described by Roger as having a stockpile of riffs. Thats a lot of riffs, and they were apparently good enough to get Jen and Roger inspired, and back into various basement studios and practice spaces to do what they started doing back way when Gary Coleman was still alivecreating songs for the love of the music, practicing, jamming, working parts out, not because it was part of their expected sound or itinerary, but because it was more fun to do than to not do.

The end result is I Want More, a six song 10/ep of no bullshit, dependable, hearty pop-punk, served up Gainesville style with Jen and Roger sharing vocal duties like a modern day Sonny and Cher. I Want More is out July 8, 2014, wherever records are still sold (the internet and garage sales, mostly). -Brendan Kelly

Stayed tuned (get it) to the interwebs for the debut of a sick GREENHORN tune from I Want More, and other kick ass news.

This will be the first 10 we have ever released, and is fitting seeing as this summer will kick off the 10 year anniversary of Anchorless Records! Lots of cool things planned to celebrate 10 years of Anchorless including a show/bash in Brooklyn this August that you wont want to miss!

In other news (which will be brief but awesome).

Check out this video for ELEANOR by Chumped, still not enought here is a PODCAST where they talk about tons of cool things and also make fun of peoples hair, speaking of Chumped, they are almost done recording their debut full length LP which will be out this fall. If you are in the great state of PA this weekend be sure to check those fools out in Philly on Friday and Pittsburg on Saturday with the Gentlemen professionally known as The Holy Mess! Jeff Rowe has been in the studio and so far as expected things sound great and cant wait to share some new tunes with you guys.

We have a couple of bands playing FEST including Chumped and Teen Agers (more announcements to come).

Oh, and the Red Wings are back in the playoffs for the 23rd straight year!!! To celebrate we are having a sale. Get 23% off your order by using the code LETSGOWINGS at checkout. This ends 4/20, bro!

Cheers

Neil





Major News (soon) but Minor news for now. Mar 19, 2014

Howdy friends! Winter is almost over (I hope) and with spring right around the corner...yeah, ok. Anyways on to some news and news about news that we can't share yet.

Chumped has a new tour video that was shot on their latest adventure with Adult Dude. This video for "Eleanor" was shot and directed by all around good guy David Williams (aside from him being a fan of BOTH the Blackhawks and Avalanche)

you can peep it HERE(below)


Keeping with those darlings in Chumped they are demoing for the debut full length and will enter the studio next month to being work on it. We are sure it will be great and are stoked be putting it out! Speaking of putting out...the first pressing of their EP is SOLD OUT AND GONE FOREVER. We have a mini second pressing in the works and should have the in a week or so, please be patient if you order one from our website.

So yeah, speaking of putting out...JEFF ROWE has been recording again and we will fill you in on details as they come in. He is the best person ever and his tunes arent to shabby either. Having been out of Boston and living on the cape for a bit should bring our some wicked good tunes from Jeff.

Oh, and the news we can't share just yet is on a new band we are releasing a debut record for. It is great, the art is great, the people...yes, also great. And what better way to celebrate 10 years of Anchorless Records than by releasing a 10". We will fill everyone in soon and have a tune for you to hear.

OK, think that is it for now...JOEY WHEN WILL YOU UPGRADE THIS OUT OF DATE WEBSITE!!! Yell at joey if you want us to upgrade to a site that is not suck in 2006ish.

Oh, last thing GO WINGS!!! If they are able to sneak into the playoffs this year we will have a crazy sale, I promise.

As you were.

Happy New Year, Friends!!! Dec 31, 2013

Hey folks, just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for such a kick ass 2013!!! We have had the chance to work with some really great bands and people. Lots of new friends were made this year and THAT is the reason we do what we do. Quick recap of awesomeness from 2013!!!

Chumped's EP/12" came out and is fucking great! Their release show at suburbia was one of the best/fun shows I've had in a long time!

Jeff Rowe played some shows in Brooklyn and Boston!!! That weekend "tour" with our good bud, Chris (sundowner) was a blast and featured a lot of overdue hang time!

Treking down to FEST was a good time as always and getting the chance to catch up with and watch Teen Agers jam out in front of a packed house fucking ruled! Their LP "I Hate It" is fantastic!

Getting the chance to work with those Poutine munchers in The Sainte Catherines again was neato! The 10th Anniversary of Art Of Arrogance came out Dec 10th (we have not gotten them from the plant yet but were assured that they are in route, so thanks for your patience on that!)

Oh, my son Alexei was born!!! Can't really capture what that feels like or means here, but I love him and being a dad is pretty rad!

Ok, well...looking forward to some great records and good times in 2014! We were promised a NEW WEBSITE THIS MONTH SO THAT RULES TOO!!!!

Going to watch the Wings/Leafs Alumni games then tomorrow the Winter Classic!

GO WINGS!!!


cheers

PRE ORDER!!! ALR 025 The Sainte Catherines - The Art Of Arrogance (10 Year Anniversary Reissue) Nov 14, 2013

Do you remember your first punk albums? Albums that influenced you when you were a teenager? The ones that you ended up reading all the lyrics, and then, your life was suddenly meaning something different because of them? These albums that made you feel like leaving home and protest against everything that pissed you off? If there is a ton of albums in the world that fit this profile, there is not a whole lot from Qubec. One of these albums is without hesitation The Art Of Arrogance. From the motorbike noises to Bush's speech, this album pushed us off our boundaries so many times. The art of arrogance, we saw it like a way of life that we were already cherishing, but in the form of a music album, it was pretty much summing all our bad moments and the anger that we had against conformists and politicians. It's been already 10 years since the album came out and it is still an excellent one to start a wild night in Montreal. Perhaps we can now rephrase... Montreal can bleed again! All that to say, we are really happy to announce the repressing of one of the most cult album coming out of the punk rock Quebec scene. In collaboration with Housebreaker (Canada), Anchorless Records (USA) and Flix Records (Europe), a repress of 500 vinyls will see the day on December 10th.


stoked to be part of this release!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kEaC-7ZHfWU&feature=youtube_gdata presale is up now in the Anchorless Records store!!!

Farewell to How Dare You Nov 09, 2012

We are sad to say it but How Dare You is calling it a day. Their last show was at FEST 11 and it was a doozy. I feel honored to have been able to be there and celebrate one of my favorite bands. I wish the guys all the best in their future endeavors and who knows, we might just put out some new tunes to come by the members!

here is a note from Justin of HDY

Hey there internet world!

I just wanted to thank all of you for attending our last out if town show at Fest 11 and also want to thank everyone for all of the nice messages and kind words via our facebook. The last show was an amazing experiencing and just such a moving and emotional show for us. We truly appreciate everyone who has ever given us a listen, bought a shirt, record or cd and of course anyone who has ever attended a show. It meant everything to me and the guys. We are all still writing/playing/making music still with other projects and i will post updates up here from time to time.

Much Respect To You All

OUT NOW!!!! Bridges/Divides by Jeff Rowe Oct 09, 2012

Hey folks! Very excited to announce that the new full length from Jeff Rowe is out today and can be picked up from your mom and pop record shop, online retailers, in our webstore, and digitally via itunes ect http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/bridges-divides/id566661047

This record is the perfect soundtrack to fall. Whether it's warm apple cider, pumpkin ale, or a nice smooth bourbon "Bridges/Divides" is the record to throw on, sit back and reflect.

"Bridges/Divides", while still maintaining Rowe's signature raw honesty and powerful lyrics boasts a number of full band tracks that are a bit of a departure from his prior records.

We highly suggest picking this up or giving it a listen on the exclusive full album stream on punknews.org which will be up tomorrow!!!

In other news, we will be down at FEST this year and look forward to seeing everyone and hoping that many of you will be there with us for How Dare You's final show.

Volume 3 of the 4 way split is coming along and is nearly ready for mastering. The tracks are stellar and can't wait you guys to give it a spin.

Ok, more updates to come but in the meantime...I am going to watch a KHL game, and prepare for no NHL this season which is a huge fucking bummer.

As you were...

The Sainte Catherines 1999-2012 Nov 16, 2011

" Don't cry because it's over, be happy because it happened "

-Pat Burns


The Sainte Catherines are pulling the plug.


It's been such a long time that we've wondered what to say when the time would come, that we don't really know how to. Here we go.


There are hundreds of reasons for why we are disbanding, some of which even our closes friends would not even understand. Being part of The Sainte Catherines has recently brought more negative energy to our individual lives than positive. We don't want to become pale copies of what we once were, trying to hold on to the glory of the past, or what little we had. Something we are proud of.


We are who we are because of this band. Our friends went to school, worked day jobs, and travelled the world. We did this all through The Sainte Catherines. Our 20's and early 30's went spent travelling thoughout 14 countries and playing over 700 shows. 12 years of our lives, organized around tours, jamming and everything else that comes with it, whether it be good or bad. The feeling now, is that we have accomplished what we set out to do. Whether it was the good days or the bad months, the memories that will last forever.


What will we miss most about these past years? Things like, dumb jokes in the van, stupidities in hotel rooms, eating boiled peanuts while swimming in the ocean, that peculiar look from that unknown woman, and of course... the music. Although the music only seemed to be the pretext to our unique friendship. I'll miss the boys...


Theoren Fleury said at his retirement press conference, Don't stop before the miracle. We lived the miracle many times with The Sainte Catherines. Thank you life.


Thank you to everyone who listened to our band, read the lyrics, came to the shows, bought a record or a t shirt. Thank you to anyone near or far that invested in putting out a record, putting on a show or booked a tour. Thank you to the people that took us into their homes, drove or repaired our van, sold or designed our merchandise, shot a video or a picture, or did an interview. Thank you to all the bands that invited us on tour, anyone that stopped to talk to us, asked for an autograph or just gave us the time of day. Thank you for allowing us to live our adult, teenage and childhood dream.


On a personal sides of things, thank you to all our friends that supported and accepted our choices even if we were not around so often. Thank you to our kids who understood that dad had to go play another show.


Finally, we would like to thank everyone that played in the band. Jf Mnard, Mike Sokolyk, Franois Lessard, Jef Roberge, Rich Bouthiller, Andrea Silver, Pat Sayers, Luc Gagn, Julien Blais, Antoine Parent, Guillaume Nadeau, Pablo Boerr, Jean-Philippe Tass, Simon Poirier, Guillaume Beauregard, Hugues Simard and Mathieu Guilbault.


Final words are often the toughest things to come up with, but out of respect to you, we avoided using one of our dumb inside jokes.


All these years seemed to last so long, with the best of times never lasting long enough. It was incredible. It was magical and it was oh so real. Thank you.


Hugo Mudie

Fred Jacques

Louis Valiquette

Marc-Andr Beaudet,


The Sainte Catherines ( 1999-2012 )


We will be playing our songs one last time. Saying thank you one last time. Come say goodbye in the spring of 2012.

HERE Oh we are also now carrying the bands back catalog which is fantastic.

As you guys already know, Mr. Jeff Rowe is a fantastic songwriter and all around good guy, but you may not know that he is a big supporter of the Occupy Boston movement (and righting wrongs in general) and has been spending time down there (he just played a show there). Well, Jeff recently wrote and recorded a song entitled "One Thousand Ways" in which ALL THE PROCEEDS will go to help the protesters who need things like warm clothes, water, etc... HERE is link to the song, you can stream it or donate either way give it a listen and pass along the link. This song will NEVER BE RELEASED other than on this page. Check out Jeff's tour dates HERE

We have two new members of the Anchorless family. Hockey, Curling, Permanent Bastards, Mullets, Health Care. What?

Torontos Permanent Bastards brand spankin new 3 song 7 entitled Young Girls is sure to get that basement party started, along with some Molson that is! Soothing gruff punk rock that is too infectious not to be loved by all. That stallion Chris Cresswell (The Flatliners) filled in on the mic. Think Tom Petty meets Reinventing Axel Rose era Against Me!. The guys will be touring extensively through 2011-2012 including appearances at t Pouzza Fest, NXNE, not to mention...your moms basement and dads garage. We will have a pre-sale for this release up in our store shortly so stay tuned!!!

Next up, are New Zealand's most handsome gentlemen, the Outsiders! These kiwis have been on the road since forming, just under 3 years ago and have already toured the US/Europe/UK Australia and New Zealand with the likes of NOFX, Megadeth, Against Me, Alkaline Trio, Propagandhi, The Flatliners, Lagwagon and Off With Their Heads. "Shallow Graves", is the bands 3rd release and compiles a handful of older gems previously released only in New Zealand along with a larger handful of new jams. These kids are on a on their way to punk rock greatness...or at least a couple nasty hangovers at the FEST 10!!! You can pre order the new CD here http://anchorlessrecords.bigcartel.com/product/coming-soon-alr-019-outsiders-shallow-graves-cd

Ok, what else... Oh! This just in, How Dare You's "the king, the clown and the colonel" is now available on vinyl! We just got these in and they are going fast. They will be in stores on oct 25th, but you can snag your copy now! We are the only place to pick up the exclusive color vinyl (100 on bright orange, 250 on white) of course we have the bundle which includes all 3 colors...pick up a copy here http://anchorlessrecords.bigcartel.com/product/exclusive-color-and-black-vinyl-how-dare-you-the-king-the-clown-and-the-colonel-pre-sale

Volume 2 of our 4 way split 7" series is now in production (after a series of technical issues) and we will keep you posted on when pre sale will be up. We hope to have the bands some copies in time for FEST!!! This volume includes exclusive unreleased jams from Dead To Me, How Dare You, In The Red, and The Holy Mess.

Well, the leaves are coming down and the bourbon tastes a bit smoother than normal. Fall is upon on us and expect more news soon include all new anchorless merch, a video from the Outsiders, tracks from Permanent Bastards, nude pictures of Jeff Rowe and more!!

The Lawrence Arms merch up now in the webstore Nov 16, 2010

Hey guys, so for those of you on the east coast this past week The Lawrence Arms were out on tour. They ended up in Boston for the last 2 show(a blast by the way) and instead of taking all their merch back to Chicago they asked me to put the left overs in our webstore.

So, we have a limited number of items and sizes(mostly small) of t shirts, hoodies, and girl tank tops. Many are sporting the bands 10th anniversary logo either on the front or the back. So if you missed the shows, want to make yourself or your girlfriend/boyfriend more attractive or just got loaded and forgot to pick something up at the show, now is the time! I have to say the hoodie is very cozy and the orange Ts look rad.

We also have the screen printed version of Wasted Potential featuring Brendan Kelly(The Lawrence Arms) and Joe Mcmahon(Smoke or Fire) there are hand numbered and /100. I think there are only about 20 of them left and 5 on White vinyl.

Go here to browse and score some sweet gear/music

"Wolves and the Radio are a band that harkens back to a time when punk was more about heart than hair. Wolves are based in Boston, Massachusetts with members hailing from Upstate NY and Portland, Maine.
There is a moment when you hear a band that you know will stay with you and be a part of your life's soundtrack, Wolves are absolutely one of those bands that make you feel like wading through the sea of disingenuous music was well worth it."
These upstate New York transplants have been turning heads throughout the Northeast and causing massive amounts of spillage in basements and clubs alike. Don't believe me? Head over HERE to hear a song entitled Kellegra which will be on their full length CD/LP out in January 2010.
If you are in the Boston area, Wolves and the Radio are playing tonight and you can scoop the details below http://rttpresents.wordpress.com/
You should "like" them on facebook
http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Wolves-And-The-Radio/173004852714072

Well that sure was some great news, now some not so great news... The Sainte Catherines LPs have been delayed a bit longer due to problems with the record itself. Side B was messed up and it is being fixed as you read. Will have these records out to you folks as soon as possible. Looks like our 13th release is not so lucky! But, 10 and 12 are pretty lucky and if you have not done so already you should head over to our webstore and pick up a screen printed Brendan Kelly/Joe Mcmahon LP or one of the Jeff Rowe screen printed LPs. Both are hand numbered /100 and /50 respectively. Check those out www.anchorlessrecords.bigcartel.com

Tune in to http://www.punkcdsampler.com/live on saturday at 7pm for an interview with The Sainte Catherines.

We have a contest going on which everyone can win something! Just post a picture of you wearing your anchorless shirt/hoodie out and about on our facebook or yours! It could be one of our artists as well. Send us a link and we will send you free shit!

Ok enjoy your weekend, I know I will! Anyone going to The Lawrence Arms shows? See you there
cheers

Back from FEST Nov 04, 2010

Back from FEST and back to work. Wow what a great time gainesville was! Seeing so many old friends and making a bunch of new ones is what that weekend is all about, that and $2 PBRs, beards, and punk rock!
I got in on Saturday with the Sainte Catherines who played their CD release show on Friday here in Boston. So I missed Jeff Rowe and Nightlights sets, however from what I was told both were a good time!
I was able to make it to The Sainte Catherines and Junius on sunday. Both sets were amazing! Hope that everyone who went had as good a time as I did. My favorite set of FEST was by the band called The Menzingers who blew my mind they have a record out on Red Scare and I highly suggest you pick up a copy!

Ok, this week AOL/Spinner are streaming "Fire Works" which you can check out HERE . If you'd like a free download of We Used To Be in Love, our friends at FUSE are hosting that HERE .

An update on the vinyl for Wasted Potential and Fire Works. The repress of the Brendan Kelly/Joe McMahon split are on their way, we have had the jackets and koozies for a while but the plant from what I have been told is way backed up. This also explains the color LPs for The Sainte Catherines. By now, if you ordered TSC lp I have sent you a digital download code for the record. The Red LPs are sold out, only way to snag one now is as a bundle which you can score HERE We expect to have these shipping out within 2 weeks. Thanks for being patient.

Oh, and expect us to announce our newest band tomorrow, or early next week.
cheers

The Sainte Catherines PRE SALE and MORE!!! Sep 22, 2010

Anchorless Newsletter for September 21, 2010

Howdy folks! Today I am going to try my best to keep this short and sweet.

We have a few things to cover, mainly regarding commerce!!!

Yep, today we put up the pre order for The Sainte Catherines new record Fire Works we have a color vinyl bundle with a screen printed poster (only 35 of these are available and you will be entered to win a test pressing!!!), exclusive color vinyl(100 on Translucent Red, 200 on Translucent Green), a hockey puck (only 100 of these) w/digital download, and of course everyones favorite the CD!

Head over to http://soundcloud.com/thesaintecatherines to get a FREE DOWNLOAD of We Used To Be In Love the first track from Fire Works.

Whats that? You want more records to pre order? Well here you go, we are repressing a short run of Wasted Potential which is the acoustic album featuring Brendan Kelly of The Lawrence Arms and Joe McMahon of Smoke or Fire. We have 100 hand numbered screen printed jackets up in our store and they will ship around the same time as The Sainte Catherines LP. Wait, but you still have copies in the webstore! True, we have less than a dozen on white! So it is now or never on those! Oh, and we will be including FREE koozies with your order(while they last)!

In addition to the Pre Orders, we have posted new Test Pressings, and some older out of print records we dug up, and a handful of Jeff Rowe screen printed record release show LPs!!! Speaking of Jeff and the release show, our buddies at National Underground have posted some footage of the show which includes Anchorless alumni Joe McMahon which you can check out here
http://www.nationalunderground.org/national-underground-recordings/894-jeff-rowe-and-joe-mcmahon-live-08-26-2010-allston-ma-

Oh, I almost forgot we have a wild CD sale going on right now, 7cds for $25...that is less than $5 each. Interested in picking up our very first release? Well it is only $1, thats right ALR:001 for just $1. We got back a box of them and need to clear some space. Both bands on the split 7 are great; Hurrah(who feature members of How Dare You) remind me of The Thermals, whereas History have a Minus The Bear vibe. So yeah, pick one up!






The Sainte Catherines Sep 14, 2010

I am so excited to announce the official release date, artwork, and a track from the new record by The Sainte Catherines!!!!

Pre Sale begins the week of 9/22
we will have exclusive color vinyl, hockey pucks, and some other sweet shit!


They're back with Fire Works, the melodic, positive, entertaining, and most interestingly coiffed LP to come out in years, all courtesy of us! Starting with a self released album in 2000, The Sainte Catherines went on to work with Yoyo Records (Germany) and the French Canadian label Dare to Care before moving up the ladder to corporate powerhouses Eyeball and then Fat Wreck Chords. What am I saying here? The emo kids like 'em, the punk kids like 'em. No one quite knows what to do with them because they've got three meaty guitars, a front man that exists at that elusive vortex where Hank Von Helvelte, Chuck Ragan and the bar where Cirque du Soliel clowns go to get drunk all converge, and haircuts that would scare the shit out of almost any mom. They're now on Anchorless and their new record, 2010's Fire Works is gonna blow some doors off. Just keep reading if you don't believe me.

The Sainte Catherines, not to be outdone, recorded their album in a country chalet, all by themselves with no engineer at all. Now, as we all know, this is either the recipe for disaster or brilliance, and which one do you think I'm gonna say Fire Works is? This record takes its cues from the band's early influences like American Steel, the Broadways, Jawbreaker and Fifteen, and strains it through a sieve of 70's rock!. Did I mention that these dudes fought a whole city with Against Me!? Well, I don't like to name drop, so take my word for it or ask them all about it when they come through your town.

Yes, expect exhaustive touring from The Sainte Catherines for the Fire Works cycle. They're loved in Europe, Canada and the stinkiest most festering pits in all of the US so get out your mustache, cut your bangs at a weird angle and give me a "Tabarnak!" for The Sainte Catherines. Um...also, they've got funny names and they're not above wearing vests. Did I mention that? Okay. I think we're done here.

I'd like to thanks the great Brendan Kelly for the above musings!

Nightlights Join the Anchorless Family, Wasted Potential Mugs! Apr 22, 2010

Hey guys, hope everyone is doing well. We would like to welcome Nightlights to the Anchorless family. If you are a fan of Latterman, The Menzingers, or No Harm Done I think you will become a fan of Nightlights. Their debut EP entitled "Long Way Home" will be out this summer, just in time for their upcoming tour. When you get a chance give them a listen and let them know just how handsome they really are http://www.myspace.com/nightlightsfl For this release we will be working with our good buddies over at Get Outta Town Records. Look for pre-sale to start sometime in May.

New Items in the Store!!!!
We have just what you need to wake up! "Wasted Potential" coffee mugs!!!
These were orginally only available with the purchase of the record from our good friends over at vinyl collective. We only have a handful of these and can't send them media mail so shipping is a bit higher than our records are. Speaking of records we uncovered some rare copies from the first pressing of All Aboard while cleaning. We have 3 copies on pink /100 and 3 on splatter /500. Both of these go for a hefty price on ebay, so now is your chance to help out the charity and also grab these rare and out of print records at more reasonable prices just email us if you're interested. Be on the lookout for some test pressings hitting ebay and our store in the near future. We will be selling TPs for Wasted Potential and All Aboard (including some rejected TPs).
We also added an option where for $2 we will toss in one of our releases with your order...could be a CD, LP, 7", or shirt!

In other exciting news, we are helping out our friends from Sidehatch Entertainment with the release of
"NOBODY'S ROBOTS: A Farewell To Piebald" - live concert DVD and Documentary
Spanning more than 3 hours, the DVD includes an hour long documentary feature that highlights the bands career and offers a behind the scenes look into the their lives, music, friends, and beloved fans. The film then flows into the bands final Boston show in its entirely; filmed April 19th, 2008 at the Middle East Rock Club in Cambridge, MA. Piebald is forever remembered as a pioneer of the hardcore / indie rock crossover genre, and this DVD encapsulates every bit of sweat, blood, and used vegetable-oil that kept them going since 1994. This is currently up for presale in our store, in addition to www.interpunk.com where you get a free button and poster with your order.
Today punknews will be launching a contest today where you can win a signed copy of the DVD and a sweet poster.

We have more news to share, but it will have to wait til next time... this fall is going to be a very exciting time for us as we have a bunch of really great releases planned and hope to be taking a trip down to the FEST.

Here is your chance to win some free shit. As some of you might know I am a Detroit Red Wings fan...if anyone(not including Josh from Vinyl Vlog) can guess who's jersey I rock during the playoffs we will ship you a sweet prize pack filled with goodies.

Vinyl Vlog Season Two Episode Four w/Save The Vinyl INFO!


TEXT VERSION:

Hello everyone out there in Internet Land!

So weve been hinting around about SAVE THE VINYL for some time now and its finally time to let the cat out of the bag (or the record out of its sleeve you could say).

A couple months ago I had this idea to give something back to the vinyl community at this years FEST 8 in Gainesville, FL. The idea was to provide record mailers to people who purchased records from any one of the number of Bands, Labels or Distros present. This would hopefully help SAVE YOUR VINYL from getting wrecked during the 100s of different shows youll attend throughout the weekend.

Now record mailers do cost money and a couple ideas were thrown around to cover the primary cost. After some debate and discussion with a couple people, Nick from limitedpressing.com stepped up and decided to help sponsor this little event. It is thanks to Nick that SAVE THE VINYL is happening! Please take a few moments and check out his site and what he is attempting to do over there at LP!

After getting the mailers secured another idea was given some thought. Help out some of the bands/labels who have supported Vinyl Vlog over the last year. I elected to start a COMP CD full of bands from across the US and Canada. After speaking with our new buddies in Limited Pressing and old buddies at National Underground, Anchorless Records & Vinyl Collective, we got a handful of awesome bands who were on board. Next we contacted friends and local favorites to fill out the roster you see below.

Now we do agree with you, COMP CDs have died over the past couple of years with the advent of the internet and myspace profiles. So in addition to the COMP CD, we decided to continue what we do best. GIVE AWAY FREE RECORDS!

Almost all of the bands on SAVE THE VINYL have donated records, cds, t shirts and stickers to be given away. We will have 200 record mailers containing 200 comps. Of these 200, 5 are GOLDEN CDs! If you get one of these special CDs you will win a PRIZE PACKAGE! Now ALL CDs do look the same but differ in track listing. The GOLDEN CDs will have SPOKEN WORD tracks instead of a real song. These tracks will have instructions saying that youve won a prize package and to email vinylvlog@gmail.com or call a special number. To find out if you won simply LISTEN TO THE CD!

Ok, we do understand that since this CD has multiple UNRELEASED songs from some pretty awesome bands (Smoke of Fire and O Pioneers to name a few) some people NOT attending the FEST may want to hear it sowe have hosted it for free here:

http://www.sendspace.com/file/sltupc

Now I hope this goes without saying but IF you enjoy any of the bands on this COMP please support them and their labels. It would really mean a lot to US and to THEM.
For FEST attendees to pick up a mailer/CD just stop by the National Underground booth at sign in on Friday and ask for one!!!!

Well, thats it. If you have any questions please feel free to Email @ vinylvlog@gmail.com or send us a message via twitter: @vinylvlog.

We really appreciate all of the bands who became part of this little adventure.

See you at the FEST!





NEW MERCH ON ITS WAY!!! Oct 15, 2009

Hi friends, we have some new Anchorless merch coming in soon! A new T-Shirt design, some koozies, and a special halloween themed zip-up hoodie (designed by MCHC). Our current logo shirts are almost gone, so if you want one now is the time!

No Harm Done 2004-2009 Aug 24, 2009

We are sad to report that No Harm Done has decided to part ways. We are very happy to have had the privilege to release 2 records for them. Best of luck to the members and their future projects.


Vocalist Matt Cantwell provided the following statement:

"These past few years have been nothing short of amazing, and I wouldn't change a single thing. Thank you to anyone who ever supported this band. First off, I want to apoligize to everyone else in No Harm Done. I have been losing touch with you, and at the same time I have become more bitter. I take full responsibility for everyone's discontent. I realize we will never agree on certain things, and that's ok. I'm glad this ended the way it did. We played our last show on August 19th, 2009 in Tallahassee, Florida."





wow time flies Aug 07, 2009

Hello friends, apologies for the lack of activity on the site. I have been out of the state for a while. Thank you to Mark Hall and crew for showing me a great time in NY. Devin has been running the show, packing orders, etc...We have some new releases that we are excited to announce but don't want to jump the gun before everything is set. You can expect some big things this fall, and some surprises that will be FEST exclusives.

SALE!!! Buy ANY release and get a coupon for 25% off your next order and a free t-shirt +Poster. This will run through the end of the month. Go back to school with an Anchorless shirt.
In the meantime, its friday so go to a local show tonight!

History is History Jun 09, 2009

Hey friends, hope all is well. We just got word that History will be playing their last show on June 12th. They were a part of the first release we ever did and one of the best live bands I have ever seen. Here is a blog from the band.

Time's they are a changin'
"Well after 6 years (that feel like 20) we are playing our last shows next week on Thursday June 11th in Tampa @ New World and Friday June 12th in Orlando @ Redlight Redlight.

Many factors have led us to this point as a band.
We've pushed our musical boundaries about as far as we feel we can with this type of music,whatever that may be haha

Our amazing bassist and long time friend Travis has been accepted into the Secret Service and will be leaving us for the President,so we're not too upset with his decision to leave us ;)
I'm actually a little envious,but we're all really excited for him and are happy he has been able to play a part and move us forward in our experience. He will be missed immensely.

It seems like a lifetime ago when we started this experiment in music and after all these years we are feeling a change in our personal lives and our musical lives. One we feel is for the better and one that we need to do.

Matt,Melissa,Scott,and myself have a plan to keep going in an entirely different musical direction that I think will push us again to be better players and songwriters.We've already started working on this new venture and will hopefully have things ready to roll in a few months. We're going to try and do it right this time haha...

So,that's it.
Come out and see us one last time as HISTORY in Tampa @ NWB June 11th and Orlando @ Redlight Redlight June 12th. We're going to try and play it all!!"


Best of luck guys.
cheers

O Pioneers!!! Basement show!!! Feb 27, 2009

Hi friends, I am very excited to go see O Pioneers!!! tonight here in Allston at 115 Franklin Street (basement show). If you are in the area you should also head out, as their new record Neon Creeps is great!

In other news, the Tumbledown/Yesterday's Ring 7" is close to being complete. The masters are in their final stages, and we are just waiting on the inserts. We will post a track and the artwork pretty soon, everything looks and sounds amazing! We could not be happier with the effort from both bands, and our great buddy Joey at Team Doom/Black Axe.

Our new merch is in, and will be photographed and placed in the store soon.

Ok, thats it. Go enjoy your weekend.

cheers!!





Friday the 13th...spooky Feb 13, 2009

Hi everyone, it is been too long without an update. So the Yesterday's Ring/Tumbledown split is coming along very nicely and will be out this spring. I had a chance to see the progression of the artwork today, and I love it, and think you all will too. It is being done by the fine folks at Team Doom. Team Doom has teamed up with some other notable designers to form The Black Axe, those notable designers are Horsebites and Derek Deal, if you are unfamiliar with them please check out their site and pick up some neat gear or hire them for your next release, bar mitzvah, or graphic design needs.

We will be out at this years SXSW, it will be my first time down there so if you or your band is heading down please send us a note!

Keep checking back as we will FINALLY have new Anchorless Shirts and Buttons up in our merch store, along with some neat items like slipmats and a few items that will blow your mind!

Ok, thats it for now. Go have a great weekend!
cheers

2009 is here Jan 06, 2009

Hope everyone had a great holiday. Florida sure is nice this time of year, but back here in boston who doesn't love the snow and ice?
So a couple weeks from now we will have a new president! Very excited about that.
We are also VERY excited about the Yesterday's Ring/Tumbledown split 7" which will be our first release of 2009. We will keep you posted with pre-sale info, vinyl colors, artwork, contests, and song postings. The tracks we have heard so far are spectacular to say the least. Both bands are doing 2 tracks 1 original and 1 cover. Tumbledown is doing a version of "On Road Again" by Willie Nelson, and Yesterday's Ring will be doing a "Spotlight" by David Allen Coe.
Everyone should pick up the latest copy of AMP magazine, there is a sweet feature on All Aboard. Speaking of All Aboard, blogger "Last Years Girl" named the album best comp of 2008.
cheers

end of 2008...things to look forward to in 2009 Dec 15, 2008

Hi guys, so as 2008 comes to a close we look back to our best year so far. All Aboard: A Tribute to Johnny Cash was released and we could not be happier with the way it came out and the response from everyone. It was a wonderful experience and a pleasure to work with so many great bands and people. A huge thank you is in order to all that helped out and supported this release. For those who have not yet picked it up, please do! We have more LPs in stock on Opaque Brown vinyl(which looks amazing with the artwork), in addition to CDs. Be on the look out for a sweet feature in the upcoming issue of AMP magazine.

While we were unpacking a shipment of CDs we found a nice package from our friends at Pirates Press. It was about 40 "coasters" from the FIRST pressing of the All Aboard LP. Basically it is the center of the LPs cut out with the artwork on them. Here is a photo Photobucket
we will be sending out 1 of these with every order through the new year starting with orders placed today 12/15. If you would like to just order a coaster you can do so by emailing us directly anchorlessrecords@hotmail.com

What does 2009 have in store??? Well we are very excited for the first 2 releases planned.
First is a split 7" with Yesterday's Ring and Tumbledown. For those unfamiliar with the bands, Yesterday's Ring is a punk/country band featuring members of The Sainte Catherines who would fit perfectly on a show with Lucero, Hot Water Music, and The Gaslight Anthem. Tumbledown is a punk/alt-country band featuring Mike Herrera from MxPx. Please check out both bands at the following links:
Tumbledown
Yesterdays Ring

The 7" will be on various colors, include a Mp3 download coupon, and have 2 songs from each band.

We are also stoked to release a split 7" with How Dare You, and another great band TBA soon!
How Dare You just released their debut album, and it is one of my favorite records of the year. It is along the lines of Hot Water Music, Jawbreaker, and In The Red. Check them out
You Dare You

Well, have a great holiday season everyone, and see you in 2009!!!
Lastly, we will ship orders up until Dec 22nd and resume on Jan 3rd.

cheers
neil

ALL ABOARD!!!!! New Release date set Sep 02, 2008

Alright, so we had some issues...but the wait is over(well sorta) art is finished and the release date is Oct 21st. Pre-Sale will be announced shortly as well as the posting of a track from the record. We wanted to let you guys know that is was originally planned to have Brian Ewing create the cover for the record, well it didn't pan out which was in no way the fault of Brian or us.
Team Doom, who had been doing all the insert and all other related art for the record stepped it up big time and came through with some very classy art for the cover which will be posted this week as well.

First, No Harm Done will be heading into the studio at the start of October with Rob Mcgregor (Against Me!, Hot Water Music, The Draft). NHD will be recording 6-8 brand new tracks as a three piece, which will be released as a digital EP/ Limited Edition CD. It should be out before the end of the year, and in time for their winter tour (dates TBA).
We have heard the demos, and can't wait to hear the finished record! In the meantime head over to www.myspace.com/nhdband for the latest dates and streaming media.

Now on to something that has been in the works for a long time, but is finally at the point where we are ready to let you guys in on the details. We have been in the process putting together a Johnny Cash Tribute record. Here is a rundown of the record.
First, we will be donating all of the profits to The Syrentha Savio Endowment. (SSE) www.syrentha.org for those of you unfamiliar with this charity organization you should head over and check out what they do. Basically they help underprivileged women afford breast cancer treatment.

Here is the most up to date list of artists/songs.

Chuck Ragan (ex hot water music) : Wreck of the old 97
Russ Rankin (Only Crime, Good Riddance) : Walk the Line
Chon Travis (Love Equals Death) : Folsom Prison Blues
Jason Shevchuk (Lagrecia, None More Black) : Give My love to Rose
The Sainte Catherines : There you go
Casey Prestwood (Hot Rod Circuit) : I still miss someone
The Loved Ones: TBA
Fallen From the Sky: TBA
Jon Snodgrass and Chad Price (ex-Drag the River) : TBA
I am the Avalanche : TBA

There are more artists that are pending, and since we don't want to get your (or our) hopes up we will only post once we have actual confirmation. The Album will be out sometime in 2008, initially the goal was to have it out by holiday time 07' but due to touring and recording schedules it is being pushed. It will be worth the wait!
The record is tentatively titled "All Aboard: A tribute to Johnny Cash"
Total tracks will be 12-14 on the CD and 2-3 on a limited edition 7”
We will keep you posted on developments regarding this release, including when the microsite and myspace sites are up and running. If you are interested in helping to promote this record please send us an email: anchorlessrecords@hotmail.com

MAKE OR BREAKING UP? Aug 09, 2007

We are sorry to bring you this news, but we love these guys and will support them in whatever projects they persue.

Via/ Make or Break's website:

Anyone who was at our last show in Orlando heard the announcement that we will be playing our last show at Orlando's End of Summer Jam on August 24th, 2007. Due to everyone's increasingly demanding schedules, it would be impossible for us to keep pushing this band forward (ie, touring) as much as we all would like to. The only way I could see us continuing and being able to tour would be if we changed members. The main problem with that is we all contribute so much to this band, it would basically be a dick move to switch anyone out. We are all great friends and will remain that way. While it sounds cheesy, this band really became the force we are now when we had our current four members - Mike Mos, me, Charles & Mike C, at the helm and therefore changing this equation would probably cheat the music and each other. Believe me, there is nothing that all of us would rather do than tour, play shows, and hang out with all the nice people we meet on the road. Everyone who has sung along, dived or come up and spoken to us before and after shows, we can not thank you enough, you are the reason this band exists/existed as much as our love for the music is. Don't be too bummed if you plan on missing us, because there are sure to be some new projects forming from the ashes of MoB.

peaking for myself, I can say that I am proud to have been a part of this band. One thing I am most proud of is that pretty much everywhere we went, we made friends. We never got involved in any 'drama in the scene' (sorry if that sounds cliche) because when it all boils down to it, none of the 15-year-old shit-talking really matters. Most of us have dealt with some hard times in our lives (I myself had a close death in the family around the time the band started) which has made me personally realize that we are only here for a short time on earth, so you might as well make the best of it. My goal from that point on was to go on the road and play as many shows as possible while I have the opportunity. I hope we made people realize that if you're paying $5-10 to get into a show, it would actually make sense if you watch all the bands you pay for and not just sit around talking on the internet (an amazing feat that could be done from the comforts of your own home!). Hardcore and punk, just like life, is what you make of it. Do what you want to do, we did. When we started, virtually no other bands within 12 hours of us played hardcore punk with a truly positive message (there were a few though!). A lot of people on our local messageboard complained about bands doing cover songs. We all love the music that inspires us, so we decided to rub it in their faces by playing at least 2 covers a night (sometimes up to 5 or 6). Personally, we all like when bands do cover songs, so why change our attitudes to try to please everyone else? As far as our own music goes, though most of the songs were rather simplistic in nature, each one of us cared about what we were saying. We put a lot of energy/aggression/emotion into the songs and were so surprised to see people singing along & dancing from our first show at Phil's house two years ago. Thanks to everyone who was there at the beginning, but more importantly, to those who are still here today. We really appreciate it and look forward to seeing you at the last few shows!
