- No new releases to report about label wise. I wouldn't
say that I'm done releasing music for good, just not
sure what the future holds for now. We'll just have
to wait and see. I've been liquidating everything in
the webstore for some time now and shipping out orders
every week. Everything is 30-50% off and there's some
winter I started a new band called HUMAN
ANIMAL. It's my first band that I'm not playing
bass in, I'm singing. Our 5 song EP is available for
free download and we self released a CD if you'd like
to order it directly from the band. Check it out! www.humananimal814.com
- Our webstore was down for a bit but we finally sorted
it all out. Please support! Check out the tremendous
sales on CDs and we even discounted some vinyl! Huge
new releases are planned as of right now. Been laying
low working on other projects like Smoke
and Mirrors and tattooing. Hopefully some new band
will inspire me to want to release something new. In
the mean time I'm hoping to start getting some new distro
stock coming in soon. Until then, take care. - EMS 100%

TO THE GRAVE “Still Climbin’ Still Believing”
