VHOL 2LP + HEXER LP AVAILABLE NOW. GILEAD FEST II LINEUP UPDATE. NEW DISTRO ITEMS/SHIRTS. NORHTLESS + INDRICOTHERE LP PHOTOS. NEW GILEAD HQ.

So stoked October is nearly here. This is easily my favorite time of the year. I’m hoping I’ll be able to squeeze in a trip to northern Wisconsin over the next couple weeks to check out the turning colors of the trees. Hoodie weather is the best. I guess Scott and I better print up some Gilead logo hoodies soon as well. Plenty of exciting stuff in the update this week. Vhol and Hexer vinyl is ready to order, both will include patches and buttons if you order early enough. There is also a Vhol shirt available alongside the vinyl. Those are limited, so don’t wait. Lots more good news, just get to it!

V. GILEAD MEDIA’S NEW HQ

September 2013 marks a new chapter for Gilead Media. It’s been just over eight years since I founded this label, and for the first time I’ve moved Gilead HQ entirely out of my home and into a studio space. The ability to draw a clear line between my work space and my home space has been a long-term goal, and I’m terribly happy that it’s one I can call achieved. No longer a basement record label. That feels strange.

Along with this new space comes a bit of change in the way Gilead Media will operate moving forward. I will personally be more hands-off when it comes to the packing and dispatching of direct mail order. My close friend Dale, a long-time Gilead volunteer whom you would recognize from my merch table at Gilead Fest 2012, will be handling mail order moving forward. I always loved packing orders myself, but as the label continues to grow, the amount of time required to pack orders becomes greater and greater. It has reached a point where the time I spend packing orders takes away from the other important responsibilities I have as a record label. Dale is a fan of the bands Gilead works with, and I have great confidence he will take the same care in the fulfillment of your orders that I always have. The best part about this is orders placed will be dispatched quicker, resulting in less wait time for those who order.

This is quite an exciting time for Gilead Media. Thanks to you all for helping me, well… I guess it’s US now, helping us get to this point. I can’t wait to see what the next few years will bring.

That’s all for this week. Until next time, my friends.

RELEASE UPDATES: INDRICOTHERE, NORTHLESS, HEXER, VHOL, THOU

The Indricothere – II LP and Northless – World Keeps Sinking 2LP are both almost ready to begin shipping. Both will be going out in orders as of 8/26. This means that both the Indricothere t-shirt option and the Indricothere + Northless package deal will be ending this Friday, 8/16. If you wanted to take advantage of either you better shoot over the store and do it ASAP! You’ll still be able to order the albums individually as normal, the package deals will just be unavailable. Order now: http://www.gileadmedia.net/store

In case you haven’t heard, there are two Northless tracks streaming online now, click the links to hear “Kuru” on the Gilead bandcamp and “Communion” exclusively at Invisible Oranges. You can also hear the entire Indricothere record in all of its majesty over at the Gilead store item listing, HERE.

I seriously have no idea how I’ve managed to release so many records this year, but it’s somehow working out alright and I haven’t broken the bank yet. Here are the details on everything else that is coming up before and after the Indricothere and Northless albums.

Fell Voices – Regnum Saturni 2LP

Vinyl = in house w/d-sides screen printed. Pre-order shirts = printed. Jackets = arriving Tuesday morning. The jackets were supposed to get here Friday so I could pack orders all weekend, but the freight company failed to pick up the pallets from the printer. Cool. Anyway, I have tracking info, I know they’re arriving Tuesday. I’ll be packing orders as fast as humanly possible once they’re in my hands. If you’re not on instagram or facebook or whatever, I posted a video that my pal Scott shot while I hand-printed some of the blank d-sides. It turned out cool. Go watch it: http://instagram.com/p/cjwAEQoaUE/#

Hexer – Hexer LP

Test pressings have been approved, jackets are completed and on the way here with the Fell Voices stock. I will NOT be taking pre-orders for the Hexer records, but instead be accepting orders when they arrive, right alongside the VHOL 2LPs. Stay tuned!

Vhol – Vhol 2LP

Pretty much the same status as the Hexer records. Test pressings approved, jackets arriving Tuesday. No pre-orders, just opening up orders as soon as vinyl is in house from the plant in September. But, there is a bit of good news for those lucky enough to catch Vhol on their upcoming Northwest tour, dates listed below. The band will have 40 test pressing copies of the s/t 2LP available for sale at their shows in the finished production jackets. Get stoked, pick one up, play it real loud.

Thou – Heathen CD

Yes, it is still coming. Everything has been tracked, nearing final mixes. I will not be announcing the release date until masters for both audio and art are on their way to production. Gilead will be handling the CD, the band will be self-releasing the vinyl (2LP) on their Howling Mine label. This will be worth your patience over the course of 2013, I assure you.
