I can’t say that I am surprised that two of my favorite Cleveland acts were picked up by A-F Records.
Earlier today, A-F Records shared a pretty kick ass announcement:
Today, we’re proud to welcome “Worlds Scariest Police Chases,” “Worship This!” and “All Dinosaurs” to the A-F Records family. We’ll be releasing records from all of them this summer. In the mean time we’ve put up a free digital sampler for download containing two songs from each artist. It’s available at: www.a-frecords.com/sampler
Click on the above photo to download a killer sampler through A-F Records. I am liking what I am hearing already.
Here is what members of Anti-Flag had to say about these new additions to their label:
WORLDS SCARIEST POLICE CHASES – Pittsburgh, PA –www.facebook.com/wspolicechases
“I know you are not supposed to play favorites with your children. And being a ¼ of Anti-Flag and A-F Records means that all of our collective releases are our “kids”… But fuck it. This is hands down the most important record we released and may ever release. I produced it with them over 4 days and I still LAUGH/CRINGE/FEEL SHOCKED AND OFFENDED by each brutal track. They’re fucking cops. They’ll steal your pot. They hate their dads. And their songs are fucking incredible.” – Chris#2
WORSHIP THIS! – Akron, OH – www.facebook.com/WorshipThisOH
“In a laptop production era, it’s pretty great to come across a band that gives a shit. Worship This! are a band that you want to be friends with. They sound real, sincere, touchable, on a level that I haven’t seen in years. Melodic punk rock in a world where there is very little true melodic punk rock. Tracked live, “Tomorrow, I’ll Miss You”, is 4 friends capturing and documenting real life. If you like records that are Copernican, you’re going to want this in your collection.” – Justin Sane
ALL DINOSAURS – Cleveland, OH – www.facebook.com/TodosLosDinosaurios
“All Dinosaurs share sonic kinship to Propaghandi…fast, brutal, without being a “metal” band. Road dogs without a care for the confines of genre, they’re a band who can and will play for everyone and with everyone” – Chris #2
Congratulations to Worship This!
, All Dinosaurs
, and World’s Scariest Police Chases
!!! I look forward to hearing both of your releases this summer. Speaking of new releases, the good dudes in Signals Midwest
are putting the finishing touches of their next release that will drop this summer as well. And people told me there is no music scene in Cleveland…
