- CHILTON- "Solar Warden" song premiere over at New Noise Magazine
Chilton is a new band out of Brooklyn, NY started by Josh Carothers of cult melodic thrash prog punk bands (I FARM, Earworms). When EARWORMS disbanded in 2017, Josh made a call to good buddy Bill Stevenson of pioneer punk bands (BLACK FLAG, DESCENDENTS, ALL) and asked if he would join in on making some music as one of the guitarists & NOT the drummer. Bill said yes and the energy was in motion! Rounded out by Neil Halpin (Earworms, The Shemps, Last Throes) Recorded by Jason Livermore @ The Blasting Room. [Vinyl LP to follow in 2019]

NEW RELEASES AVAILABLE from Dead Broke:
SPIT-TAKE- "Falling Star" LP
Connecticut indie rock family trio's latest & greatest full-length album, after a slew of various releases. Dreary & melodic indie pop, as earnest as it is fresh. Born in 2013, this trio has been making a buzz for themselves in the tightly-knit pocket of New England DIY. For fans of Pavement, That Dog, Superchunk, Beat Happening, etc. This is a batch of songs not to be missed this year. First 100 on Limited Blue Swirl color vinyl! (Comes w/ download code)
IRON CHIC / TOYS THAT KILL- Split 12" LP
Dead Broke & Recess present a split for the ages! We've teamed up to release a split 12" of our own bands, on our very own labels, and it's good as fuck. Iron Chic bring forth 4 brand new songs, taken straight off the cutting room floor of our last album, "You Can't Stay Here". One of these tracks is so good that I actually wanted it on the album, but it just didn't get the vote. Toys That Kill slay it with 5 new songs that were supposed to be part of their next album... but since they are the best band in punk, we asked them to split a 12" with us & they contributed the songs onto this fine piece of wax instead. 700 Black, 100 "Fest" Splatter, 100 Purple, 100 Coke-Bottle Clear. (Comes w/download code)
RADON- "More Of Their Lies" LP
Gainesville, Florida punk legends, RADON deliver their fourth album to date of rocking & poppy melodic punk rock that has paved the way for many to follow. For over 27 years this quintessential Gainesville band has been churning out some of the best melodic punk the South has ever seen. Fast forward to 2018, Radon are back with a new full-length album of some of their best & catchiest stuff to date. And we're absolutely thrilled to give this gem of an album the vinyl treatment, along with our old friends at Creep Records. 400 Black, 100 Vanilla Blue vinyl. (Comes w/download code)
PORCUPINE- "What You've Heard Isn't Real" 12"
Porcupine was born in 2006 in La Crosse, Wis., where singer/guitarist Casey Virock had previously launched another indie rock trio, Space Bike. Now based in Minneapolis, the band has evolved to full maturity, a potent force propelled by drummer Ian Prince and the most recent addition to the band, bassist Greg Norton (formerly of HÜSKER DÜ). In naming the band, Virock saluted one of his favorite bands, Echo and the Bunnymen, and his songcraft and musical sensibilities swirl the Bunnymen and other New Wavers along with 1960s British psychedelica purveyors (especially Syd Barrett) and 1970s classic rockers. The result is muscular and edgy, infused with melodicism and angular guitar work that puts the band in a class with Queens of the Stone Age and Swervedriver. Six brand new songs produced & recorded by Kevin Bowe (Paul Westerberg/The Replacements) including a Grant Hart cover! (Comes w/download code)
BASEMENT BENDERS- "Shrapnel Songs" LP
Sophomore album from Chattanooga, TN punk region rock band featuring members of Future Virgins, This Bike Is A Pipe Bomb, Hidden Spots, Jack Palance Band, Black Rainbow & more. Follow up to their "Lydiad" LP in 2015 on No Idea, and the bands' best stuff to date. Scrappy yet melodically beautiful pop-punk, churning with honest anthems from DIY veteran punkers. Recorded by Jerri Queen & John Hoffman of VACATION. (Comes w/ download code) 300 Black vinyl, 100 Banana Yellow vinyl.
PARASITES / RAGING NATHANS- Split 7" EP
The Parasites return with their first split 7" since their split with Boris The Sprinkler more than 20 years ago. Out of all of the bands that were made popular by the 1990's pop punk insurgance, none were as underrated as The Parasites. Undeniable melodys and hooks, along with Dave Parasites unique and sincere voice made The Parasites one of the most influential punk bands of the 1990's. Their influence has never been stronger than on the two new tracks recorded for this record. Raging Nathans have proven themselves to be a reckoning force within the DIY punk rock scene, record after record. The record fills a gap that has been missing for quite sometime in punk rock music. With leads for days, chunky rhythms & honest lyrics, the Nathans once again push themselves ahead of the rest of the pack on this 7". Split release w/ Rad Girlfriend. (Comes w/ download code)
SOMERSET THROWER- "Godspeed" LP
Long Island’s Somerset Thrower are returning this year with a new album, Godspeed, on August 24 via Dead Broke Rekerds. They’ve got a sound that’s got one foot in Jawbreaker/Sunny Day Real Estate-style emo and another in Gin Blossoms-y alt-rock, and though they aren’t the first modern-day band to bring those two sides of the ’90s together, they do it in a way that feels fresh and vital. Their songs really rip, and they really reach that cathartic climax that music like this is supposed to reach..” - BV (Comes w/download)
GIANT PEACH- "But You Made Me Such A Beautiful Thing" LP
Brooklyn, NY (by way of Long Island) shoegaze indie/rock/grunge/pop band's finest work yet. Follow-up to their last album, "Tarantula" on Don Giovanni Records. New York's Giant Peach are set to release their sophomore album... while their previous work opted for an indie punk sound, their latest album offers a scenic approach to their sonic splendor, open and sprawling over the course of a warm and meditative hour. There's a ton of detail and nuance, with the band exploring their surroundings and using the studio to push new territory previously unexplored. Limited "Ocean Blue" vinyl available! (Comes w/download code) *Digital download includes 2 exclusive bonus tracks!
HEAVY POCKETS- "Pure Evil" LP
The third and final Heavy Pockets LP. Amazing indie/pop rock & punk from NH. going out with a bang. Their best batch of songs to date. The band is calling it quits, but we just had to get in on this release. Limited to 200 copies. Hand glued jackets and a 16 page zine written by Shayla. (Comes w/download code) Pay-what-you-want download here:
BEDFORD FALLS- "Send More Bees" LP
Bedford Falls are back with third album "Send More Bees", follow up to 2012's "Elegant Balloons". This new album sees the band capture the power & grit of their live show more than their previous recording outings, and sounds like the crashing of (fuzzy) guitar driven indie punk rock. This is the Welsh take on that Dinosaur Jr/Husker Du/Superchunk/Moving Targets/Superchunk sound, with a healthy nod to Big Star- but in a sea of very ordinary bands attempting this genre, BF absolutely nail it. More than worth the six year wait! [Co-release w/ Boss Tuneage & Brassneck Records] (Comes w/download code)
FIFTEEN- "The Choice Of A New Generation" Reissue LP/CD/TAPE
Definitive reissue by Berkeley, California-based punk band, FIFTEEN. From the ashes of east bay legends, Crimpshrine, came Fifteen. In summer of 1992, the band toured the US & Canada, and recorded their second album, "The Choice of A New Generation". Originally released on CD/LP in 1992 on Lookout! Records. Gloriously restored & remastered from the original reel-to-reel master tapes by Carl Saff at Saff Mastering. Featuring cover art in full color for the very first time. (Comes w/download code)
CANADIAN RIFLE- "Peaceful Death" LP
Chicago greats Canadian Rifle are back with their 3rd full-length album. Since 2006 these punk vets have been blasting out their blend of rough & ear-splitting melodic punk rock that is unmatched. Definitely contender for record of the year. In a world of indie grunge posers, Canadian Rifle are back again to show you midwestern punk rock is still alive & well. Members of Ambition Mission, Fourth Rotor, Sorespot & more. (Comes w/ download code) 400 Black, 100 Magenta vinyl.
