Better Days-Away Team 7"9/1/2018 · CTR-20
St. Louis, MO melodic hardcore unit Better Days have been producing lightening fast songs that teeter between hardcore and punk for a few years now. In early 2017 Better Days re-structured their line-up adding two new members, and an arsenal of songs that are executed at breakneck speeds. Their style is reminiscent of hardcore acts like: Kill Your Idols, Gorilla Biscuits, and Reach the Sky, but executed at So-Cal skate punk tempos. 2018 and beyond will bring the opportunities of more shows, traveling, and recording – it’s safe to say Better Days shows no signs of slowing down.

Drip Fed-Drip Fed10/26/18 · CTR_21
Drip-Fed started in 2014 and released our first demo that year. It was just three of us at the time (Me, Nathan and our old drummer Ryan). I wrote and recorded all of the guitars and enlisted John to play with us live so I could just sing. The "Sickened Kind" EP was released in 2015. James joined shortly after that and the "Under the Wave Blanket" 7-inch was released in 2017. Chris joined the band last year as we began writing the new record.
James is also in Portrayal of Guilt.
Nathan, Chris and James are also in Mothman.
Chris and Nathan are also in Thieves.
I’m also in The Bearer.
Being our first full-length record, we spent a lot of time working on these songs. It was definitely more of a collaborative process than in the past. More of the material was fleshed out together as opposed to me coming to practice with a complete song already written. This is also the first release with Chris on second guitar and he contributed so much to our sound. I feel like his leads are the missing piece that left our old material kind of lacking.
I really didn’t want there to be any creative boundaries on the record. I wanted to push what our sound had been. There are songs that are fast, slow, dark, happy and everything in between. If something was good then we kept it. It didn't matter if it sounded like nothing we had done before. I mean there's some actual singing and even acoustic guitar. Something I never would have considered 4 years ago when I started this as a simple punk band.
Lyrically, there isn't an overarching theme of the record. I tend to write very personal lyrics and try to present them in a somewhat general way. I'm not good at conveying someone else's experience. A lot of the lyrics do lean more positive than previous material. They're still nihilistic, but the kind of absurdist nihilism where like nothing matters so "fuck it." I still had a few songs to finish a couple of weeks before recording so I rented a garage apartment in Wimberley, TX which is about 45 minutes outside of Austin in the hill-country. It really helped to be away from my routine and just focus on writing for a few days.

Sunstroke-Second Floor/Seven10/5/18 · CTR-22
Sunstroke, from Philadelphia and surrounding areas: is a band that started with an honest intention of friends getting together to write the kind of songs that they wanted and felt motivated to. With a heavy focus on “Revolution Summer” era bands like: Dag Nasty, Embrace, Rain and Rites of Spring, but also a larger range of influence from 80’s Brit-Pop, Shoegaze and Minneapolis greats Hüsker Dü, and The Replacements. While keeping a strong handle on the ethos and social justice elements of Hardcore/Punk, Sunstroke looks to offer a sound and content for audiences to resonate with.
CoinTossRecord and NMZ will have different color way shirts for pre order with logos on left chest, we also have a 5 panel hat that will just be a pre order item.
