If you have ordered something from repos.bigcartel.com, thank you for your dollars and your patience! I am about 90% caught up with orders, so if you have not received yours it will be shipping this week.
The Repos have two new records coming out this week.
Youth Attack is releasing the LIVE MUNITIONS LP for Record Store Day available ONLY at Reckless Records in Chicago.
Organized Crime is releasing a new 7" for Record Store Day which will be available WORLDWIDE. The following stores will have copies:
New 7" for Record Store Day from Organized Crime Records. Housed in a 28" x 21" poster sleeve that will look great hanging on the wall of your bombshelter. These will be widely distributed and available worldwide, check with your local shop. Feel free to give them a thorough ass chewing if they neglected to order copies.
New live LP for Record Store Day from Youth Attack. Available at Reckless Records in Chicago, for now.
Split 7" with SPINE sometime in 2013.
New REPOS LP sometime this decade.
No shows booked at the moment, but that doesn't mean we don't like being asked.
THE ROPES are no more. There is another band called THE ROPES and they had the foresight to get a trademark on the name. They have threatened our label and promoters with legal action ($$$) if they continue to work with us. We felt it was unfair that those who released and promoted our music to be subject to lawsuits, etc. The Ropes LP that was recorded and scheduled for release is cancelled.
We have a few T-Shirts left over for sale at repos.bigcartel.com. We will be getting some tapes from the most recent Youth Attack update which we will be selling there as well.
We have decided to continue making music under the name THE REPOS. A ton of cool shit happening in the near future including two new 7"s, a couple of compilation appearances and we will be playing with LOS CRUDOS in March. New REPOS LP in 2013.
Playing a show in Hammond, IN at a bar called the Fifth Amendment this Saturday July 7th. Sunday is my wifes birthday, please send regards in person.
Playing a show in Chicago Tuesday July 10th. Aarons birthday is the 13th and mine is the 14th. Early birthday wishes welcomed and encouraged.
Playing shows in Indianapolis and Cleveland in early September. We will have a 7" on Cowabunga that will be part of their singles club. We will have a few copies of this record for sale at these shows, but only 500 will be pressed, so don't snooze. Music has been recorded for this record and Aaron will be doing vocals this week.
Long time Repos/Ropes bass player Adam Sharani has parted ways with the band due to increasing personal commitments. The split is amicable and we all wish Adam the best of luck with his family and any future creative endeavors.
The Ropes have a new bass player named Andrew who is a total dude.
The Ropes LP is still being held up by technology. Any orders for tapes from me are going out this week, sorry for the delay. Papa bear hibernates in the summertime.
