Pre-orders for Bad Teeth Recordings’s(the label run by Weekend Nachos frontman, John Hoffman) second ever release and first compilation, Wake Up Dead Volume One, are poised to go up sometime later today. The compilation features six exclusive to this release tracks from six of the sickest and most promising hardcore bands today: Sex Prisoner(AZ), The Repos(IL), Curmudgeon(MA), To The Point(CA), Thick Skin(DC), and Sucked Dry(MO). Stream Thick Skin’s contribution to the compilation below and look out for pre-orders later today here. Bad Teeth Recordings’s first official release was one of my favorite EPs of last year, Subhuman, by Spine(review here). You should probably pick that up too.
There’s a free awesome hardcore compilation of unknown origin floating around called The Outsiders Volume One. The compilation features unreleased material from Old Wounds, Ancient Shores, and Astronomer while featuring recent tunes from bands like Twitching Tongues, Apart, Raindance, Sleepwalkers, Casting Curses, Mountain Man and The Teeth. Stream it and download below.

Anyhow, check out the full details on dates(some dates TBA, we’ll keep you posted!) and a track from each group below. Pre-order Losin’ It’s new LP, No Apology, here and Worldwide Powerviolence here.
