Seis Pistos/Disidente 7″ split – Out 5/21/2015


We’ve been wanting to work with these guys for a while and we’re happy to bring to you all two great bands from Mexico as part of a split 7″.  Disidente is not a known name here in the US but in Mexico, they’re gigantic in the underground and the same goes with Seis Pistos.

Two track 7″ that blend the heaviness of harmonies of the likes of Torche and Helms Alee, hope you dig.  Check out Disidente’s track “Velociraptor” here on our bandcamp page.

Pre order starts April 28th worldwide and will be released on May 21st.

It will be the first string of dates of 2015 for The Men o’ Meat since they paired with Carolina shock rockers Antiseen last year for a dual trek across Texas and into NOLA. This run will be Against The Grain’s third tour of 2015 after hitting the road with Lo-Pan in the month of March and local MI dates with Beast In The Field in the month of April.  The Meatmen took Against The Grain out for their first national run back in 2011, since then both bands have released records on Self Destructo (Savage Sagas, Motor City Speedrock/Surrounded By Snakes respectively) and it’ll be the first time two Self Destructo Records artists have paired up for an extensive tour in the US.

MCheck out The Meatmen’s latest record “Savage Sagas” here, first batch of new songs released in almost twenty years!  Against The Grain are currently on tour with Lo-Pan across the Northeastern US and have just finished up recording their new album at Train-A Comin’ studios in t. Clemens, MI.

The new album will be the follow up to 2013’s “Surrounded By Snakes” and will be the newest vinyl release since Self Destructo Records released their 2012 breakthrough album “Motor City Speedrock” on 10” vinyl at the start of 2014.

Peter Pan Speedrock “Buckle Up & Shove It!” pre order up now!

It’s been nearly ten years (and countless amounts of Grolsch) since these guys have had a US release (Pursuit Until Capture c/o Prophase Music 2007) and they’ve only gotten heavier, louder and more abrasive with their sound and approach since. The last time PPSR were in the US was during the turn of the century (before some planes hit some buildings) and ended up with the band making TWO appearances at SXSW (2001/2003) and a 25 date tour with the preeminent Georgia sex, riff, n’ whiskey thumpers Nashville Pussy through the US and Canada.BuckleDigiUSdef edit

“Two Bad Dudes” is the full length that 2011’s “The Chronicles of Dirty Dick expands upon. This release is designed to be listened to as a five part epic storyline, following the distorted adventures throughout an imaginary landscape of film noire vixens, along with the Burroughs and Leary influenced mindset, leading the listener inexorably through the side A. Side B begins with an orchestra piece of percussion which leads the listener into the ketamine and morphine addled brain that Antique Scream fully expect you to be in during this release.
