Things have been nuts over here! We have the Get Rad CD/LP available now, the Arms Aloft CDEP available now, and the response to the Krallice “Dimensional Bleedthrough” 2LP has been great. So, thank you if you’ve pre-ordered! If you have not yet pre-ordered, then that will take us to the first order of business (among much other awesome news)…

Yup, that more or less says it. If you were waiting to order the 2LP with a shirt then today is the final day. At 11:59p today I will be removing the t-shirt option. Get them orders in! http://www.gileadmedia.net/store
GET RAD “I CAN ALWAYS LIVE” CD/GATEFOLD LP AVAILABLE NOW NOW NOW! + EXCELLENT PRESS LINKS
You know, I’ve been a huge fanboy for everything Dave Rudnik (Bass – Get Rad, other stuff in Seven Days of Samsara, High on Crime, Kungfu Rick, and a ton of other righteous bands) since I started getting into hardcore. In addition, I was always a huge Since by Man fan (Kevin, vocals for Get Rad played guitar for SBM). So naturally when I first heard about Get Rad I was really excited to see what it was all about. I was never let down. Every release reveals more and more how much can be awesome and righteous in hardcore. Get Rad are about as good as it gets.
So, April 2010 we will present what I strongly feel is one of the best hardcore records I’ve heard in years. Get Rad capture an energy and excitement that I’ve come to think was lost in hardcore. I am elated to be involved in the process of releasing the record. “I Can Always Live” will be presented in CD and Gatefold LP format (with digital download). Get stoked, stay rad.
Head on over to the store to hear two songs from the record, “Life Without a Plan” and “Honest Man/Wild Man”. Great stuff. Oh, don’t forget to get one of those excellent shirts with the CD or LP as well! http://www.gileadmedia.net/store

FREE MP3s TO STREAM/DOWNLOAD
I set up at least two free songs for each Gilead Media release in the store so you can hear anything before you buy it. Now is your chance to realize how excellent some of the lesser known Gilead releases are from bands like Black Arrows of Filth & Impurity, Heller Mason, and The Paper Chase. Not to mention hearing tracks from the great new Arms Aloft and Get Rad records! Do it! http://www.gileadmedia.net/store
MEWITHOUTYOU “[A–>B] LIFE” LP – SCREEN PRINTED EDITION LTD TO 90
The grey pressing of AB Life was a bit of an overrun and resulted in a batch of records arriving without jackets to find a cozy home within. These have just been hanging out for a good couple years or so. Occasionally I would remove a black LP from a jacket and fill it with a grey LP to fill an order and such, but they generally sat untouched. I decided to go ahead and screen print some folding jackets and slim inserts, providing a limited edition version that will essentially only be available here, one time. The band is getting a small batch, about 14, but I’m not sure if they’re going to bother selling them or just hold onto them or pass them around to friends and family. So here they are, only 36 on black, 53 on grey, and one on clear orange from the first pressing. These colors will be filled into orders randomly, so please don’t request a color because your request will be ignored. All copies will be hand numbered /90. These LPs will be first come first served, no trades, no wholesale, no reserves. http://www.gileadmedia.net/store
That’s all for now, hope you found something to get excited about! Definitely listen to some of the mp3s from Gilead releases, I know you’ll find something you like!
Thanks to you all… until next time!
