A long time coming

It's been a while since I've posted any news on here with updates to the new releases & future stuff in the works with the label. So heres what's coming up & in the pipeline

SAR006:
First up... Self Acceptance is excited to say that the Ontario new jacks "STRAIGHT TRUTH" are joining the team and will be putting out a UK promo tape with us sometime in the not so far future! I have the tracks just need to dub the bad boys up & get the inlays done. Straight Truth continue to follow on the occurring pattern of quality bands coming out of the Canadian scene right now (especially in the Toronto/Ontario area to note)

ST play a straight up 80s Boston style of hardcore with classic & modern influences from all over, but overall and I guess its ignorant to say this considering all of whom take influences from the precocious, but they basically have that complete Toronto hardcore punk sound. Its hard to put my finger on it, but band after band that come out of this area seem to do something discreetly defiant, yet different that ties them all into the same sort of region & scene.... Anyways, thats enough pointless rambling for now, the tape will have their self released 5 track demo & then 4 new songs recorded in some fucks basement. The tapes themselves should be available in a few weeks time, news will be posted here & across various sites, forums & social networks when so.
Stream a track from the demo here - Straight Truth - Sex Fined

SAR007:
Secondly, and this one truly has been a long time coming... orders for NO FUTURE, the debut 7"" from the UK's own Blind Authority will be available real soon. The tracks are now up for streaming on their bandcamp page here - https://blindauthority.bandcamp.com/.
I'm basically just waiting on the test presses to arrive and then once approved, the mailorder & band copies themselfs will follow shorty after.

They have a release show set and is fast approaching, June 7th in Leeds (next Saturday)
To add to the above, the lineup is completely flawless, with the likes of The Flex, Obstruct, Fade, SHRAPNEL, Arms Race and Mankind (who also just released a new incredible 7" on the best their is Quality Control Records, ffo complete Faith/early Discord).

Copies of No Future won't be available at the show itself due to plant delays, but needless to say the show alone is enough to not wanna miss it. Check back here and everywhere else I'll be spamming when the copies have come in. The boys will be taking special sleeve copies out on their euro tour in July too
Thanks, C

Small Distro Update

New CS's in from Blotter & GAG. Two tapes you most definitely need to pick up whilst you get the chance. I "did" have a fair amount of these in... but a load went out this past weekend at Mongrel so don't hang around if you fancy one, as I doubt there be up for long. Also got a bunch of the flawless 7" from TX's Back To Back out on Lockin Out Records, by far one of my favorite 7"s from the past year.  

More distro stuff will hopefully be up online in short time, with news on future releases on the lable. Blind Authority hit the studio to record the 7" in a few weeks time which will be out with plent of time for their euro tour in July.

Mongrel Fest Two

Mongrel Fest II is getting closer & closer by the day, be sure to mark your calender for the 1st of March. Last years fest was by far the best show of 2013 for me, all the mates, a showcase of all the best bands the UK has to offer, no bullshit attitudes and just plan & simple goofing around. This years fest is poised to be x10s better with an incredible lineup, filled with bands from all over the globe, UK, EU & USA all joining as one & representing on the motherland.

The fest was also "aimed" to be the release show for the forthcoming No Future 7" from Blind Authority, BUT with a few hiccups here & there and delayed dates for recording, thats no longer the case... However they will have copies of that live promo tape up in the store, and probably a new shirt or something. Their busy booking a summer euro tour and we will have the 7" out for then.

Distro Update / No Future Promo Tapes


One of the UK's best new additions Blind Authority are currently in the recording stages for their upcoming 7" No Future, which will be be available through SA spring 2014. The release of the 7" has come a little delayed to what they wanted and with a bunch of new shows coming up, we thought it would be cool to get a couple of the tracks from it up online & available physically on a promo tape. The tape features live set recordings of three new tracks from the 7", (well ones an intro, but still).

The songs were recorded back on their 2013 UK tour with Poder Absoluto at their Glasgow show with Dread. Go pick one up from the store. http://selfacceptancerecords.bigcartel.com/

Blind Authority - No Future 7"

Blind Authority is making a swifty return to the new year with their debut 7" - NO FUTURE.
This marks the first vinyl release from the band along with the first on Self Acceptance and on a personal level, I couldn't be more excited to be involved & helping them out again. Expect nothing short of them to produce some of the most aggressive & raw hardcore punk tracks, you shall hear come out of the UK in 2014.

The 7" comes as the follow up to their more than well received 2013 demo, and well... after hearing some rough mixes of the new tracks to come, I can tell you that this new stuff knocks the demo straight off that bad boy block. No Future will feature 4 new back to back slammers, along with a new intro (that once heard) you will have to reflect upon your life's existence....seriously! (if not, you shall spontaneously combust!)


Initially anticipated to be out in time for the upcoming Mongrel Fest 2, of which is taking place in Sheffield - March 1st... However, whether or not that happens is still a little up in the air as it stands. That's basically due to recording dates and so getting pushed a little back, but hoepfuly it will all work out. Failing that and as mentioned before, a live promo tape for No Future will be going up in the store in a week or so's time, and will feature 2 of the said new tracks & that intro. Check back here then for that!

The band still have a few shirts left over from their recent UK tour with Poder Absoluto back late on last year up in their big cartel, go pick one up and help 'em out. blindauthority.bigcartel.com/
