Cursed "Two"
Format: 12"LP

Coming soon.
A release date and Pre-ordering information will be announced shortly.

The highly anticipated vinyl repress of "Two", the sophmore album from Cursed.

This new superior version of "Two" was manufactured using brand new pressing plates, making the release sound more monstrous than ever before. All of it presented in a gatefold jacket with revamped artwork and packaging.

This is the second in a series of singular represses of the entire Cursed full length catalog from Deathwish ("One" is now available). Cursed "Two" and "Three" albums were originally released by the defunct Goodfellow label, and are under exclusive license to Deathwish from Sonic Unyon Distribution.

A final limited box set of all three albums and a book of Cursed related material by Chris Colohan will be released later down the road via a partnership of Deathwish and Colohan's own label, High Anxiety.

Cursed were Canada's metallic monstrosity fronted by vocalist/lyricist Chris Colohan formerly of The Swarm, Left For Dead, and Ruination. The band also featured former Ire and Black Hand members.

Originally released in 2005, "Two" was the intense second album from Cursed. Distinctly their own animal, Cursed took the most powerful qualities of the aggressive sub-genres and turned them into something raw and explosive. Ultimately influencing and shaping the heavy music world as we know it today.

Self Defense Family "Indoor Wind Chimes b/w Cottaging"
Format: 7"EP, Digital

Coming soon.
A release date and Pre-ordering information will be announced shortly.

This is the third installment of Self Defense Family's "Island Series" of recordings.

Recorded by Jamie Savage at Chem 19 Studios (Franz Ferdinand, Arab Strap) in Glasgow, Scotland.

Challenging is one of the best words to use when describing Self Defense Family. With this release, vocalist/lyricist Patrick Kindlon and Company continue down their seemingly limitless creative road.

Opener “Indoor Wind Chimes” paints a brutal yet honest picture of the end of days. Poetically exploring the rarely discussed politics of dying on a foundation of a beautiful melodious riff. B-Side “Cottaging” is some of Self Defense Family’s best work to date. In it Kindlon, tells his tale of a staling relationship amid complicated mistakes. Through his gift of unflinching realism, he makes his brand of self deprecation a touching and emotional work of art. Without a doubt, this is another stellar release from one of today’s most prolific underground bands.

Code Orange "I Am King"
Format: CD, LP, Digital



In stores September 2nd.
Pre-ordering information will be announced shortly.

"I Am King" is the new album from Code Orange (formerly Code Orange Kids), recorded at God City Studios by Kurt Ballou. Unpredictability is the law as Code Orange navigate through their distorted world. Title track "I Am King" shifts from "heavy" to "hard to define" through the use of unorthodox guitar work/percussion and chaotic structure. While songs "Dreams in Inertia", "Starve", and "Bind You" all wear an art-rock crown while claiming a metallic throne. It's not just melodious experimentation though, "Unclean Spirit", "My World", and "Thinners of the Herd" show Code Orange reimagining what aggressive music can be. Elevating and expanding what can be done within the confines of it without leaving it behind entirely. Proving that Code Orange are true artists and not just "kids" anymore.

In stores August 19th.
Pre-order now at http://store.deathwishinc.com

Punch is a socially conscious hardcore band from San Francisco, California. They carry a recognizably spastic sound with pulverizing breakdowns, intelligent song structures, and brutal vocals. Their debut EP, "Eyeless" (2008), "Self Titled" LP (2009) and second LP "Push Pull" (2010) were joint releases on record labels 625 Thrashcore and Discos Huelga. Their 2011 EP "Nothing Lasts" was released by a partnership of 625 Thrash, Discos Huelga, and Deathwish Inc.

They have toured North and South America, Japan, Australia, and Europe.

We are proud to announce the release of "They Don't Have To Believe" from Punch. Recorded by Jack Shirley at Atomic Garden Studios (Deafheaven, Joyce Manor, etc.) "They Don't Have To Believe" is a monster of an album. Fifteen songs that blur the lines of hardcore and grind. All of them personal, political, and uniquely unapologetic. Buzzing with an electricity that is rare to experience in today's world of heavy music. No polish, just pure rage.

Coliseum "Coliseum Deluxe Reissue"
Format: CD, 2XLP, Digital



In stores August 19th.
Pre-order now at store.deathwishinc.com

Founded by Louisville musician Ryan Patterson and including Kayhan Vaziri and Carter Wilson, power trio Coliseum have grown to become one of today's quintessential contemporary punk bands. Successfully melding progressive musicianship, hardcore fervor, and vital social awareness into one constantly evolving artistic vision.

Over the last decade Coliseum have released music on a host of labels including; Temporary Residence, Relapse, Level Plane, Auxiliary (Ryan’s own label), and even Deathwish (“True Quiet / Last Wave” 2009).

And now, 2014 brings Coliseum and Deathwish together again as their permanent label home. “We have a long and storied history with Deathwish and their family of bands,” says Patterson. “Not only did we work with the label on the ‘True Quiet’ 7”, we’ve toured around the world with Deathwish bands, released a split with Doomriders early on, and I’ve been fortunate enough to design a number of Deathwish releases. While Coliseum officially joining the label’s roster is a new chapter for us, it feels like a homecoming.”

To celebrate Coliseum’s 10th anniversary, we are proud to present the “Coliseum” Deluxe Reissue: A twenty song collection featuring their classic self titled debut album (out of print since 2006) paired with eight essential bonus tracks from their primordial years. Originally recorded by Jason Loewenstein of Sebadoh and now fully remixed by Joel Grind of Toxic Holocaust, the release also features new deluxe packaging, insightful liner notes, and cover artwork by John Baizley of Baroness.

Cold World "How The Gods Chill"
Format: CD, LP, Digital



In stores August 5th.
Pre-order now in the Deathwish Store.

Years in the making, "How The Gods Chill" is the definitive Cold World album that the hardcore world has been clamoring for. Recorded by Will Yip (Studio 4) and Arthur Rizk (Salomon's Gate) "How The Gods Chill" is a thirteen song amalgamation of Hip Hop character and Hardcore heart. Openers "Blind" and “The Real Deal” bounce and stomp akin to "Urban Discipline" era Biohazard. While "Never Knows Best" and "No More Fun and Games" melodically and respectfully pay homage to influential legends Only Living Witness and Life Of Agony. It wouldn’t be a Cold World album without a myriad of diverse guest appearances. Queens rapper Meyhem Lauren, George Hirsch of Blacklisted, legendary Kool G. Rap, and even Max B are all featured on the album. Altogether creating an infectious melting pot of sound and spirit unlike anything out there today.
