THE SHAME glow in the dark records arrived at the PE Warehouse today and they are bad ass! We broke ground on two new fronts here. This is the first time we’ve pressed a record on something that glows… Seriously, if you get radiation sickness from playing it consider this your legal warning. This is also the first Oi! record that PE has been apart of. Chad from THE SHAME has been a long time friend of Profane. You might know him from political crust bands like BROTHER INFERIOR, ASSEMBLY OF GOD or BRING DOWN THE HAMMER. Musically THE SHAME play anti-fascist OI! and it’s solid fucking punk rock you can sing along to while drinking pints with yer mates! It doesn’t matter what you’re into (except maybe straightedge) but if there is one thing that brings the punks together it’s beer and a band who sings it praises: THE SHAME. We are excited to welcome them to the PE family and to have them kick off the Limited Edition 7″ Series. What is this series you ask?? Each month in 2013 PE will release a new limited edition 7″. If you subscribe for the first six you get limited edition glow in the dark vinyl and a screen printed patch from each of the featured bands. Subscriptions are limited but there is still time to sign up. Do it today!

ANOTHER SOCIAL DISEASE – Brain Damage 12”EP
ASD hail from New Jersey and really do a great job of capturing some of the NYHC / Crossover sound. These guys play old-school hardcore that reminds me a lot of VERBAL ABUSE and perhaps even some LETHAL AGGRESSION. They ride that 80’s hardcore vibe as it was maybe just before or just as bands were starting to add a little metal. It’s there but this is not full blown crossover, they still have their feet firmly planted in hardcore punk. The production is solid and the album sounds thick and raw managing to retain a lot of the energy this band possess. There is no lyric sheet (or really any info for that matter) but they seem to protest typical punk topics like cops and hard drug abuse. From the pictures on the back cover these dudes look a bit older and I think that’s what makes this record come across as being so genuine. This isn’t a bunch of kids setting out to be another generic retro hardcore band. These dudes are the real deal. (Josh Mosh)
