LABEL UPDATE - 05.08.2013
BIG EYES "Almost Famous" LP/CD Now Available for PREORDER!
Official Release Date - Tuesday, May 14th
Yup, that's right! We've been talking about and hyping this release for a while now, and couldn't be more thrilled to announce that the BIG EYES "Almost Famous" LP/CD is now available for order! The official release date is next Tuesday, May 14th and you can preorder the LP today in the Grave Mistake Webstore! And by "preorder" ... let me assure you that the records are in house, assembled, and ready to ship first thing next week!
You can order the BIG EYES "Almost Famous" LP/CD HERE:http://www.gravemistakerecords.com/catalog/index.php?cPath=56
We've got some nice limited GOLD VINYL for the mailorder customers, and I've also put up a bunch of cool package bundles in case you needed to scoop up any earlier BIG EYES releases as well (and if you order any of the bundles, you'll get the LP on colored vinyl). The release also comes with a killer double sided 24x16 poster in case you've got some empty wall space that needs decorating!
If you have yet to hear any of the new BIG EYES tracks, you can head over to the Grave Mistake Bandcamp page ( http://gravemistakerecords.bandcamp.com/
)and check out a couple of songs from the new record, and we'll have the full LP streaming next week (more info on that when it's up)! I've also begun shipping the record out to distros and stores, so hopefully you'll be able to find the record at your favorite local record shop or distro in the coming weeks. Finally, our best bud Michl over at TAKEN BY SURPRISE Records will be handling a European Pressing of the LP and his version should be ready later this month as well.
GRAVE059: BIG EYES "Almost Famous" LP/CD
The highly anticipated sophomore full length from Seattle's BIG EYES! With a solidified West Coast lineup, BIG EYES have stepped up their game with a more definitive sound and unified vision. "ALMOST FAMOUS" finds the band drawing even more of a hard rock influence, while maintaining both the pop sensibility and punk edge that you've come to know and love. Taking inspiration from a wide variety of bands ranging from 70's rock and roll staples like Kiss and Blue Oyster Cult, 70's and 80's power pop classics like The Nerves, The Shivvers and The Undertones, and 90's pop punk bands like Scared of Chaka and Mr. T Experience, the trio continue to develop their signature style - tastefully embracing the more glamorous aspects of rock and roll without compromising the attitude and grit.
BIG EYES are gearing up for another tour through the midwest and over to the East Coast, so check the dates below and mark your calendars! They'll have copies of "Almost Famous" with them as well!
Also if you live in the Seattle area, BIG EYES will be playing a record release show for "Almost Famous" on May 17th at The Highline w/ TOYS THAT KILL!
One last thing before I go! In case you've been slacking on picking up any other new Grave Mistake Releases, we still have a few copies of the SECTARIAN VIOLENCE "Upward Hostility" LP on Blue Vinyl, BARGE "No Gain" 7" on Red Vinyl, and I thought I was sold out but I found a small batch of SICKOIDS "No Home" 12" on Clear Vinyl w/ the Silkscreened OBI Strip ... so pick up ALL of these if you haven't yet!!!!!
