Hi-STANDARD The Gift on vinyl!

Last year our favorite Japanese punkers Hi-Standard released The Gift. The 16-song ripper has been getting rave reviews ever since, but there’s been one thing missing… the vinyl version! That’s where we come in. We’re teaming up with Hi-Standard to bring the people what they’ve been waiting for. Not only do we have something to satisfy your turntable, we’ve even got a little something for your bod. That’s right, we’re rolling out an exclusive shirt design too. Sugoi!!! Trust us, your vinyl collection will be lost without this gem. Pre-order it now. Also, if you haven’t rocked out to The Gift yet, well… get on that.

We’re so pumped about this news that we’re making the journey all the way to Japan to see Hi-Standard in action at their Air Jam show on September 9th. We’ll be bringing plenty of Fat Wreck Chords merchandise with us for the lucky people going to the festival, so come by our booth and say kon’nichiwa.

New Direct Hit Album! New Song! Pre-Order!

There’s a new Direct Hit album on the horizon called Crown of Nothing. Today we’ve got your first taste with the debut of a new song/video! Animated by the talented Walker Dubois, “Welcome To Heaven” showcases Direct Hit’s mastery of sending the listener on a transcendental journey via melody, lyrics, instrumentation, and imagery. It’ll have you tappin’ your toe and ruminating on the afterlife all at the same time. Check out what vocalist Nick Woods said about just how deep the band went with the first new single.

“Welcome To Heaven” sets up the plot for a story this new album tells about Heaven and Hell, and the blurred line between existentialism and nihilism. There’s an angel, whose ultimate reward is vengeance on the now-demon who ended her life, and there’s the place they exist in together where she punishes him over and over again for all of eternity. Walker’s animation introduces where she finds herself after death, and the conflict it creates: How does she find meaning in infinite existence? And how does she transcend a second time?

Will Nick’s questions be answered? There’s only one way to find out… pre-order your copy of Crown of Nothing today. Act fast to get a copy of the limited LP, which comes on color vinyl, with a slipmat, and a magic trick that’ll blow your fragile mind. Of course, the fun doesn’t end there. You can bundle that with a four-issue subscription to an illustrated zine/comic based on the album. But wait, there’s more. Each 24-page issue comes with an alternative version of a song from the album! Phew! Don’t say we never did anything for you.
