In late 2013, Viet Cong released a small-run cassette EP on tour. These hard-to-find, tour-only tapes built up a growing fanbase, and US label Mexican Summer approached the band about pressing it to vinyl for the first time. Now, with a debut LP from the band on the way, we are happy to make this EP available in Canada. Check it out here!
Chad VanGaalen announced a trip to Europe this fall, including a stop at the End of The Road festival in England. Starting Aug 31 and ending September 15, the tour winds through much of Western Europe including London, Paris, Berlin, Stockholm, and Amsterdam. Full list here.
It won’t come as a great surprise to fans of the label to hear that we are going to be working with Viet Cong. Made up of former members of bands in our tight-knit community, the Calgary-based band is mesmerizing on stage, and we’ve been excited about Viet Cong since their first shows.
We can’t keep it under wraps any longer, as the Calgary-based band are heading to SXSW to play some showcases this week and are sure to be turning heads. SXSW showcase details here. More news about release dates and tours will come soon!
