happy holidays!

we here at svss headquarters wish you all the best. hopefully you are planning an excellent new year's celebration, and hopefully you've got 2007 all planned out. (we do - we'll let you know the release schedule for the first 3 releases in '07 real soon).


well, it appears to be holiday time, y’all. hopefully the season is keeping you all smiling and spreading holiday cheer (or whatever you want to call it.) here are some updates – sorry for the delay in getting this information to you.

our good friends her candane have released another record, titled no battle, out now on tribunal records. recorded by kris krummet (fear before the march of flames, kaddisfly, anatomy of a ghost) at interlace audio. go buy the disc, it’s available at your finer record stores nationwide, and also available through lumberjack/mordam distribution.

don’t have the band’s sound vs silence debut ep yet? what’s wrong with you!? buy it from the end records or smartpunk.

her candane are currently working on writing new tracks this month, and they’ve booked a bunch of shows starting early next year – check out the tour dates page to see the shows with i am the ocean (featuring kellen dopp, formerly of her candane on vocals), love me destroyer, imperial, and trophy scars.

sound vs silence is super excited to announce the release of the debut record by the hotness, featuring lucky and a-dogg, 2 of the 3 guys that run this here label! the disc is called fashion over comfort, and it features the best damn drum-machine and casio riffs put to tape in the last few days, to say the least. check the tour dates for upcoming local shows, and look for reviews of the record in zines soon. the boys have just added a guitarist and a new keyboardist, and there is talk of a tour this summer. this is a great disc, it’s something like a blend of adam and his package and the blood brothers – but very minimalist and fun. seriously, you must see these dudes rock it live… check out some tracks on the band’s myspace page.

while you’re there, add your ass to our friend list too…twelve gauge valentine is still on tour! currently, they’re doing some dates with maylene and the sons of disaster, and they’re working on booking some more shows for 2007 as we speak. they’re supporting the new disc, shock value (solidstate) and they’re still selling our release, exclamationaire on the road as well. new tour dates added here, so make sure you make it a point to see these guys…they’re getting rave reviews. they’ve got some new posters and shirts for sale too. if you haven’t purchased the records yet, get a coupon for shock value from the band’s myspace page, and buy exclamationaire from the end records right now.

finally, we’re working on some deals right now. we should have some new additions to the svss family to tell you about before the end of the year. stay tuned, we’re dialing things back in so we can turn it waaaaaaay up real soon.



tomorrow: make sure you pick up the new twelve gauge valentine full-length at your local shop - it will be released by solid state tomorrow, october 3rd. the band continues to tour the country. look for them on the solidstate young bloods tour with the chariot next, then a tour with maylene and the sons of disaster.

we are almost done with svss number 6: the hotness "fashion over comfort" record has been at the pressing plant for a few weeks now, we're just fine-tuning the artwork. plan on the disc being available as early as a week or two from now...


the new twelve gauge valentine record (on solidstate) will be released on october 3rd. you gotta get it. we just caught up to the boys in 12gv yesterday - sounds like they've had some issues with dropping a tranny in minneapolis, and they're currently keeping the foot on the gas pedal to make it back to the tour that's in texas this week. hopefully, the van issues will be righted soon, and the tour will continue without issue. we'll keep you posted. also, we just printed up some new twelve gauge valentine posters...we'll show 'em to ya soon.

art of kanly is playing club vegas on monday - with a band called suplecs. see you there.


sadly, our boy a-dogg left the glorious salt lake city a few weeks ago and unfortunately he had to put his keyboard skills in the hotness to rest as well...the good news is this, however: sound vs silence is pleased to announce that we have set up shop in seattle, washington as well. now we've got two offices, so you have no reason to pass us by while you're on the road...
more news soon
