  • SEWER TROUT- "Meet The Sewer Trout" LP PREORDER is available now!!! Go check out a freshly remastered track premiere now over at New Noise Magazine Legendary 80's Sacramento California punk rock band, Sewer Trout, composed of brothers Hal and Jim MacLean and guitarist Keith Lehtinen, has always been the goofy band of the Lookout! Records bunch, standing out for their rejection of the punk stereotype. False noses? Presidential campaigns? Innumerable belches? Sewer Trout had it all. Once you go past the surface level, you will find a trio of highly skilled musicians playing some of the most complex and blistering music Lookout had to offer in the beginning. Songs like “Paradise Lost” and “ I’m A Hypocrite” show a more sensitive and poignant side of Jim’s lyricism dealing with the honest state of the world. Dead Broke & Lavasocks are thrilled to be bringing the complete works of Sewer Trout. An outstanding outlier in the Lookout catalog for all the best reasons. RIP Jim MacLean. **PREORDER for Green/Yellow vinyl limited to 100!** Digital release date July 1st. (Preorders shipping sometime in July!) You can also add a limited NEW VULGARIANS TAPE (Sewer Trout goes rock climbing!) Only available through this preorder!

Your Pest Band have been churning out their brand on garage rock/punk for nearly 15 years, with over 20 releases across the globe.

  • ANXIOUSHUM- "Scratching On The 8" EP is OUT NOW!!!
    Infectious & brilliant, gloomy yet melodic emo/indie rock from Long Island, NY. "anxioushum are two besties who set out to make the most sincere/anthemic songs you've ever heard––and they nail it on their upcoming EP, Scratching On The 8. Recorded by Billy Mannino (Bigger Better Sun, oso oso, Tree River), Scratching On the 8 is the band’s proper debut aside from the song “Notice 2.0” which takes on a new life since Diaz's transition. It will be out everywhere on May 20 via Dead Broke Rekerds. The duo—Syd Diaz and Matt Sherman— grew up together on Long Island listening to bands like Motion City Soundtrack (although they prefer Farewell Continental), Taking Back Sunday, etc. While their paths have taken them to different places (specifically with Diaz, a working actor, spending most of his time in Los Angeles and on film sets), making this kind of music together has always been a part of their story." Limited to 300 copies.

    Limited to 100 Clear Forest Green vinyl available & shipping now! @ DISTRO

ANXIOUSHUM- "Scratching On The 8" EP
Infectious & brilliant, gloomy yet melodic emo/indie rock from Long Island, NY. "anxioushum are two besties who set out to make the most sincere/anthemic songs you've ever heard––and they nail it on their upcoming EP, Scratching On The 8.

Limited to 300 copies.

THE SOVIETTES- "LP I" LP (Reissue)
The Soviettes first LP sees a beautiful re-issue on 180 gram vinyl thanks to Dead Broke & Rad Girlfriend. Originally released on Adeline in 2003, LP I has been long out of print and sought after by fans of the band and record collectors. The Soviettes were a punk band from Minneapolis, MN who spent most of the 2000’s touring and putting out records, eventually leading to their 3rd and final LP being released on Fat Wreck Chords. They have been described as The Ramones meets the Go Gos. The Soviettes play loud and fast and rock it hard without any reservations. Their style is stripped down, no-frills punk rock. If you don't know, it's about time you did.

EZRA COHEN- "The Sweet Million" LP
New England singer-songwriter, Ezra Cohen's debut full-length release. After two EP's on his own and years of cutting his teeth touring, playing & booking the New Hampshire DIY scene (with his bands Notches & Charles), Ezra truly delivers as a solo artist, perfectly capturing his melodic & infectious pop rock songs for all the world to hear. And we're listening. Proudly wearing his influences on his sleeve, you can hear traces of the Lemonheads, Westerberg/Stinson, Lucinda & Wilco bursting throughout the 10 indie pop songs. With a song for every mood, "The Sweet Milllion" is triumphant in being one of the best & most honest indie rock records of 2022. You just don't know it yet. Dead Broke & Relief Map Records. Limited to 200 Black vinyl.

NATURE BOYS- "IV" LP
Kansas City, Missouri punk rock & rollers that have been kickin' up dust all across the country since 2009! Their fourth album and first on Dead Broke after self-releasing a slew of their previous efforts. Imagine if Dead Moon was a buch of punk rockers from the south, then you might be getting close to what Nature Boys scrappy & energetic punk rock is all about.

SMOOCH- S/T TAPE
Short-lived but amazing Long Island post-hardcore/pop-punk 3-piece including members of Somerset Thrower, Sister Kisser, Halfway To Hell Club & many more.
