Ok punk rock fans here is something that should make your week. Houston’s O Pioneers!!! and Quote UnQuote Records are offering a free download of Neon Creeps. The CD released on Feb 10th will be released by Asian Man Records and the vinyl love will be handled by Kiss of Death Records. There will also be a limited run on CD in Australia with an alternate cover released by Poison City Records. If you like bands like Smoke Or Fire, Against Me!, and Hot Water Music I am thinking you are going to love these guys.
-Download This! – O Pioneers – Neon Creeps
O Pioneers!!! will be supporting their new album with a string of tour dates ending with an appearance at Harvest of Hope Fest March 6-8th in St. Augustine, Florida. (See below for dates)
O Pioneers!!! most recently released a split 7” for Suburban Home Records with Mike Park as well as splits with Bomb the Music Industry, The Measure (SA), The Anchor, and Saw Wheel.
So why is it being released for free you ask???
Quote Unquote Records is a newer record label with a twist. Their goal is to put out good music and help their artists be heard. The label is a donation-based label that realizes that with CD sales down that a different approach is needed. The label will offer free downloads on albums from bands signed to them in hopes that the fans will like what they hear and donate something, anything. The label also hopes the fan will in turn see the band live one day and pick up the CD or merch during a show.
It is a different approach? Will it work? Well I think it has potential.
