SPB exclusive: Old Ghosts - Crow

Old Ghosts - Crow

Our featured stream this month comes courtesy of State Of Mind Recordings and Old Ghosts, who share the brand new full length, Crow. Fueled by anger with an underlying sense of hope, Crow is the second full-length from the Buffalo, NY-based group.

In a recent interview with No Echo, vocalist Derek explains:

I think most of the songs end up being questions about how we treat the world, each other, and ourselves. Are we able to change our ways? Can we get past regrets and imperfections? Will we fight for the marginalized or just stand by? 

Pre-orders are available from State Of Mind now. Check out the record here:

In addition to the full-length, Old Ghosts also released a split with Bystander earlier this year.
Crow is available on LP and CD in the USA and Canada, and also on LP and cassette for fans in Europe.

SPB Premiere - "The Time Past" by Han Gan

SPB Premiere - "The Time Past" by Han Gan

Based in the Capital metro of Washington, D.C., three-piece Han Gan returns with The Time Past EP, a follow-up to 2018 full-length The City of Magnificent Intentions. This group, made up of veteran players from the hardcore and punk scene, matches their hard-hitting instrumental parts with thought-provoking lyrics reflecting the crazy world we find ourselves in in 2020.

Commenting on the album, the band says: "The music and the first draft of the lyrics for The Time Past were written a few months before the COVID-19 outbreak and the murder of George Floyd, but what we had written portended to us a major shift. A lot of people could feel something was coming, and The Time Past is our document of that feeling."

Recorded and mixed remotely, the album drops tomorrow, July 1st, with all proceeds from streaming, digital sales, and physical copies (limited-edition cassette and compact discs) going to the Community Justice Exchange’s emergency response fund supporting BLM protesters and immigrant detainees. Check out the premiere of the album's title track below, and consider supporting this release and the worthy cause it benefits.
