new vinyl by respire, catacombe, rýr and toundra

Some great records have just arrived from narshardaa records, especially if you are into the heavier side of postrock this may be something for you:

toundra – II 2xLP
even if TOUNDRA are slowing down sometimes, they are kicking ass like a perfect new formed band outta the ashes of KYUSS and RUSSIAN CIRCLES and this without rocking the same boring riffs for hours and hours. Another band nobody is talking about, which is destroying almost every other band playing similar shit now and forever.

catacombe – scintilla LP
redefining post-rock with deeper harmonies and hypnotic, unpredictable rhythms – there are heartwarming breaches of light cutting through the massive walls of sound.

rýr – left fallow LP
“left fallow” combines crushing and heavy riffs with spherical clean sounds in a non-standard yet intuitive way to balance different sets of emotions within individual songs.

respire – dénouement LP (half red/half black vinyl)
his record… is an attempt at closure. a reflection on a decade spent gasping underwater. a reflection on trauma, addiction, guilt…

respire – black line cassette
A band embodying the notion of community is a sight for sore eyes as the world moves into post-2020; Canada’s Respire stands firm as one of the most forceful in the realm of new screamo and post-hardcore bands, pushing what it means to encourage diversity and representation within the roots of art.

new vinyl by eyes of tomorrow, nordend, by a storm, ash return, new hate rising

some classic hardcore releases from fellow german label dedication records have just been added to the shop.

eyes of tomorrow – settle for more LP
If you are into Agnostic Front, Cro-Mags, Madball or Sick Of It All then you really should be adding the name of Eyes Of Tomorrow to the list but then you know that already, don’t you?

why not combine an order with the band’s debut 7″ from 2018:
eyes of tomorrow – gone for good 7″

nordend – gegenwind LP
metallic hardcore, mixed with samples, breadowns and singalongs. limited to 100 copies

by a storm – your voice your weapon LP
German oldschool Hardcore rooted in the NYHC scene. Think Agnostic Front mixed with Sick Of It All mixed with Madball and then add some German HC school a lä Rykers/Miozan and you get an idea. Their second album.

ash return – the sharp blood of integrity LP
Consistent heaviness with catchy melodies, hardcore and metal easily form a symbiosis, blitzing guitar solos with fist raising singalongs, diverse vocals extending from deep growls and hardcore shouting to virtuoso Bruce Dickinson heights doing the rest. Hardcore will be Hardcore!

new hate rising – miles LP
From rock to metal to hardcore, NEW HATE RISING remain true to their style and their versatility is reflected in each of the twelve new songs.

manifestation / relations split 7″
manifestation play aggressive hardcore with a lot of oldschool influence and a bit of 80s metal, relations play a pissed off style of hardcore influenced metal with german lyrics

wishes on a plane – unreleased now available digitally

after being out for a few months on CD, LP and digital download through bandcamp wishes on a plane’s posthumous release ‘unreleased’ is now available from spotify, apple music, deezer, and most platforms your heart could desire. please help us out by streaming, even if you own the record already! this will let us know you are interested in digital releases and may help funding more old stuff from woap.

stream on spotify
stream on apple music

clocking in at a little over 30 minutes playing time these unearthed 5 songs, intitally recorded in 2005 show the band’s musical origins, before screamish and post influences kicked in and formed records like ‘this faint line’ (released in 2008). mostly influenced by classic mid 90s emo bands and recordings such as jimmy eat world’s ‘clarity’, texas is the reason’s ‘do you know who you are?’ or the get up kids’ and christie front drive’s entire discography, some 00’s pop punk like the ataris and a more mature take on emo like elliott on ‘false cathedrals’ we get a suprisingly poppy at times, yet fragile and imperfect record, unconventionally arranged, rough and rocking that deserved to rise from the old harddisk it hibernated on for almost 15 years.

1" buttons with your design

when I started being in bands one thing you HAD to have on your merch table were buttons. badges, pins, whatever you call them. so now your band/label/distro can be cool like in the early 2000’s again by getting a bunch of these. ORDER HERE

good news for all my american customers, from september 15th I can post smaller stuff to the US again. these will however go via sea mail, please be aware it will take longer than usual (4-5 weeks to reach the east coast)

after being in the mail from the US for quite a bit I finally have tricktape in stock! these are vegan friendly synthetic suede patches meant to repair/cover worn areas of skateshoes, however of course you can repair any other type of shoes as well. please check these out HERE

furthermore a few records have been added to the distro from handstand records:

kissed by an animal – s/t LP
Crunchy power chords, big hooks, and searing guitar leads, all sprinkled with some chewy bits of sonic weirdness make this release a charming and strangely familiar listen

lytic – one sided LP

matte black – psyche LP
In the four years since the release of Dust of This Planet, Brooklyn all-wave trio Matte Black has been honing its sound into something more direct and organic than ever before.

lacing – without CD
dark shoegaze with dramatic post-rock swells and nuanced noisy outbursts. Ethereal vocals compliment the icy clean guitar lines in a series of swirling waves before the storm of dark hooks and trembling discord.

the 25% discount promotion during september and amid the old wounds test press raffle is still going until october 4th, if you missed that deal check september news!
new items mentioned on this page are excluded from the discount, sorry!

25% discount and amid the old wounds test press raffle in september, new records from winter dust, lights & motion, rank/xerox, sport, radium grrrls

coming tuesday, september 1st my vegan alter ego will turn 10 years! that’s pretty sweet, and to celebrate I’ll offer 25% off everything except the new amid the old wounds 7″ and all skateboard stuff. minimum order is only €30

speaking of amid the old wounds, from all orders until september 30th I will pick a lucky winner of a free vignette 7″ test pressing. I will notify the winner in early october and he/she/they would only have to pay shipping to receive it, or combine with another order in the future.

I almost forgot the most important detail, please use this code at checkout to receive your discount:


this discount will be valid from now through the entire month of september

remember when I released this amazing postrock/posthardcore album entitled ‘sense by erosion’ by winter dust last year?

well guess what, this wasn’t the band’s first and only output, and I was finally able to snag some more copies of their 1st and 2nd vinyl release from france based voice of the unheard records. also if you like postrock, you might want to check out the lights & motion LP, too:

winter dust – thresholds LP
Thresholds is midway between an ep and an album, with a heavy, strong and foggy morning light on widened songs aiming to a final waking up.

winter dust – autumn years LP
With seven tracks of boldly emotional, genre blending post-rock, it’s no surprise that Autumn Years is as likeable as it is. Whereas most bands of the Explosions in the Sky ilk tend to find solace in tirelessly repeating the age old crescendo (four minutes to slowly build from nothing into a wall of fuzz and then, of course, doing it all over again), Winter Dust places more focus on actual songwriting

lights & motion – chronicle LP
Chronicle is the 3rd album from swedish genius Christoffer Franzen, the man behind Lights & Motion, after Reanimation and Save Your Heart, both out in 2013. The bar was set very high, but Chronicle brilliantly manages to surpass it, by getting yourself to a journey to the stars. Close your eyes, let the music flow through your body and enjoy the trip ! Chronicle was originally released in Jan 2015 by US indie label Deep Elm Records.

also I got some new records and restocks from adagio830 records:

radium grrrls – pro choice 7″
hardcore punk with powerviolence outbursts, infused with the attitude of the riot grrrl movement

rank / xerox – m.y.t.h. EP 12″
rank / xerox – mass transit mongo combo cassette
messy post-punk with hidden pop jams

sport – slow LP
catchy and melodic style of music that incorporates elements of punk, emo, and indie rock

skateboarding stuff added to the shop (fallen shoes, footprint insoles, tricktape and allstargum)

I am excited to announce I have added a skateboarding section to the shop. Because I only just started this I can’t order big stock of items with different sizes. usually I would put these on backorder, but I can’t guarantee every size is available from the distributor at all times, and I don’t want to disappoint people. so if you are interested in these items please use the “get notified when this item is available!” option I added to the respective products and I will do my best to make your item available asap. thanks for your support!

I am going to sell only vegan products, from fallen footwear over footprint insoles, which can make your long days on your skateboard or dayjob more enjoyable by providing dampening and support to your feet. also because skateboarding and daily life in general can wear and tear your shoes down I got tricktape and allstargum, so you can make them last longer. please check out all skateboarding stuff here:

thanks <3

amid the old wounds records have finally arrived from the pressing plant (not saying they were slow, I just was very impatiently waiting for them) and I’m super pleased with how the overall design and aesthetics turned out.

this is my very first solo record, and I couldn’t be more proud about it. three singer/songwriter acoustic guitar tunes heavily influenced by late 90’s/early 00’s acoustic emo music as performed by the new amsterdams, early dashboard confessional or the get up kids

overo – s/t LP
(hardcore-emo with members of football, etc. and perfect future)
the union ares – songs from the north LP
(including members of carson wells)
heksa – cenizas LP
(scandinavian melodic punk like burning Kitchen, sju sju svåra ar or lucky malice)
55 deltic – you could own an american home LP
(wonderful slow emo)
tapestry – an invisible boundary, a set distance 7″ (pop-punk-emo)
bird calls / small bones split 7″ (classic british beaty screamy emo)
