Keeper / Sea Bastard Split LP Pre-order now up!

Hello one and all!

Well, we're nearing the end of Dry Cough's first full calender year and I'm feeling pretty pleased with what I've managed to achieve with the label over the last 12 months. I reckon an output of two cassettes, one 7", one LP, and three 2LPs is pretty good going for one dude with limited space, time, and money!

So far 2015 looks like it is already set to eclipse this year, with 5 releases pretty much confirmed already; and that's on top of the latest one which is currently at the pressing plant as we speak.

Of course, I'm talking about the Keeper / Sea Bastard split LP.California's Keeper lurched onto the scene earlier this year (2014) with their 'MMXIV' demo (described by CvltNation as 'doom demo of the year' no less!) showcasing their brutal, gut-wrenching take on doom (think Burning Witch, Grief, Noothgrush etc). They fill their side of this split, the 14 minute long '777' with an unhealthy dose of desolate horror and bone-crunching despair; the vocals alone are enough to make you want to do some damage. These guys are only going to get better and better!

The flip side features another typically weighty offering from UK quartet Sea Bastard. This is their first new material since their sophomore album, 'Scabrous' (also co-released by Dry Cough), and it doesn't disappoint. The band have honed their own unique brand of riff-filled morbid doom and once again they execute it perfectly on the 20+ minute 'Astral Rebirth'.

This is a co-release with Black Reaper Records (UK), Medusa Crush Recordings (CAN), & Tadpole Records (UK) and limited to just 250 copies.

You can pre-order it NOW from the Dry Cough store.

The offer of FREE WORLDWIDE SHIPPING on all orders of £35 and over is still available too, just use the code OHMYGLOB.

Anyway, that's all for now. I'll have more news on new releases in the New Year so until then...

Merry Fucking Christmas.
