We were trying to wait until we had concrete news to provide on the status of The Most Dangerous Animal's "Breakfast EP" and Hampshire's S/T 7". Unfortunately, we still don't know much more than we did 2 months ago, other than both are going to be delayed coming from the vinyl pressing plants. Hampshire test presses have been approved so they seem to be ahead of "Breakfast" at this point, which is frustrating considering TMDA was sent out much earlier than Hampshire. We apologize for delays and are working on ways to avoid these long push backs and still be able to keep bringing you new records. Emails will be sent out to each individual as the records become available. If you've been buying vinyl in 2014 from smaller independent labels you know this is something that everyone is experiencing. Thank you for the support and understanding!

Absolute Punk Staff Reviewer Zac Djamoos recently reviewed our newly released 4-way split 'TV Dinner' featuring Hung Up, The Swellers, Lobby Boxer and 1876.
"So while the EP’s A side is the better of the two, it’s still a damn good EP. Prior to hearing this, I was only very familiar with The Swellers. Now I’m scouring the internet for other releases by Hung Up and Lobby Boxer. (Hint: they’re all up for free on Save Your Generation’s bandcamp.) So check out TV Dinner – you may just find your new favorite band."
