Now this could break your neck: our comrade in heavy, Southern Lord, has curated an edition of our label mixtape series. What you have is 20 songs that will make you realize why this label is on some next level shit and it’s packed full of some extra heavy gems! The Southern Lord tour kicks off today in Seattle featuring Black Breath, Martyrdöd, Burning Love, and Enabler. The SoCal horde has it good, because our stop on the tour is a free Southern Lord/Scion Showcase (click to RSVP) happening this Saturday in Pomona…peep all of the tour posters after the jump! Read what the Lord himself has to say about this comp, and stream and download below!
2012 has been been an incredible year for us so far. We have had the amazing opportunity to work some great bands. Although its only half way through the year, I’m going to say that this is probably the best year in the entire existence of the label! From legends like Sleep, Poison Idea, High on Fire, From Ashes Rise, Pelican and Earth, to up-and-coming bloodthirsty butchers: Black Breath, Martyrdod, Burning Love and Enabler. Speaking of which…I personally booked an entire US tour myself of those 4 bands, that kicks off on June 19th in Seattle.
Why in the hell would I be crazy enough to do that? I felt it was absolutely crucial for these bands to be seen, so I took matters into my own hands. Along the way, those 4 bands encounter other Southern Lord alumni like: Poison Idea, Noothgrush, Pelican, 2 new bands from Texas were working with – Power Trip and Wild//Tribe – Dead In The Dirt, and on the East Coast, The Secret from Italy join in on the madness.
The first half of this comp. is bands from the tour, and the second half are choice cuts from other recent Southern Lord releases. CRANK IT UP!
