THIS WILL DESTROY YOU GEARS UP FOR SXSW, LAND TV/FILM SPOTS, PREPARE TO
RECORD NEW FULL LENGTH ALBUM
With "Young Mountain"
now in its fifth pressing, the meteoric journey of THIS WILL DESTROY
YOU continues. This month, the San Marcos foursome will perform
at both Ellum Onstage (Dallas music festival featuring The Polyphonic
Spree, I Love You But I've Chosen Darkness, Mates of State, Snowden, et
al.) and the annual South By Southwest music festival in Austin. Below
is their schedule for the latter:
• March 16, 2007 @ Maggie Mae's w/Hella, Six Parts Seven (official
• March 17, 2007 @ Monkey Wrench Books w/Hot Cross (no wristband
This spring, you'll be able to hear THIS WILL DESTROY YOU's
music in a few TV shows and films. "DRIVE: NOTES FROM THE WILDERNESS"
is a great show run on Fuel TV documenting the life and travels of professional
skateboarder Mike Vallely. As big fans of the show and Mike's message,
we couldn't be prouder of the guys for their participation in this ongoing
Additionally, the band will make their feature film debut in the surf
documentary "ONE CALIFORNIA DAY,"starring world-renowned surfing
legends such as Tom Curran, Greg Noll, and Lance Carson. Be on the lookout.
Last but not least, be sure to pick up a copy of "City By The Battlefield,"
the second collaborative skateboarding DVD between Magic Bullet Records,
Fredericksburg Skateboards, and brothers Mark and Brent Eyestone. The
film's opening sequence is set to THIS WILL DESTROY YOU's
"Quiet" and in stores March 27, 2007.
In April, THIS WILL DESTROY YOU enters Willie Nelson's
recording studio to track their self-titled second full-length album for
Magic Bullet Records. John Congleton of The Paper Chase (and Explosions
In The Sky producing fame) will be at the helm. Demos were cut in late
February and, if they are any indication, this record will go on to make
many ears happy in 2007 and beyond. Tentative song titles include:
A Three-Legged Workhorse
The Mighty Rio Grande
Prepare for an exciting second half of 2007 from these guys. Upon completion
of the album, expect comprehensive North American and UK touring.

LOSER LIFE MAKES MRR'S TOP TEN, FINISHES MAGIC BULLET DEBUT
Bakersfield, CA's LOSER LIFE
recently learned that revered punk institution Maximum RockNRoll
recognized the band's first 7" in their top ten releases of 2006.
Additionally, the same issue features a scene report on the Bakersfield
punk and hardcore scene written by the band's drummer, a man we affectionately
refer to as Panda. Check it out.
"I Have Ghosts And I Have Ghosts" is the 8-song rager
that LOSER LIFE has completed for their Magic Bullet
debut full length. It will hit stores May 8, 2007. Vinyl will be released
by our friends at Going Underground and extra songs from this session
have already been released as a new 7" on the Life's A Rape label.
The band will be touring the United States for two months this summer.

LIVE TENT CHAOS CONTINUES, SPLIT CD RELEASED, FIRST TOUR ANNOUNCED
continues its/his/their(?) reign of live terror and spontaneous micro
releases. At show #3 (held this past Saturday in Fredericksburg, VA),
audience members were trapped for the duration of a set when the now trademark
10" x 12" tent and wall of amplification was erected in front
of the only exit from the venue (behind the audience while they watched
a prior band play). As the set kicked in, panic ensued inside while a
car smashed through a bridge guardrail outside, sending the automobile
into the Rappahannock River. You can't make this stuff up...
Meanwhile, AUGHRA releases seem to be popping up like
zits on an MCR fan. A limited DVD titled "A Sleeping Bag & A
Shitload Of Acid" (view TRAILER)
and split with Poison Arrows came out on UndeRadar, Magic Bullet released
a tape called "Midway Monsters" (AUGHRA's tribute
to Super Bowl loser Chicago Bears), Meudiademorte put out a Wether/Datashock
split with bonus AUGHRA remix, and a 3xCD compilation
on Public Guilt/Epicene/UndeRadar should be out any minute now.
On February 6, Magic Bullet released "Is There Anyone Else Outside?",
a split CD with MOSH PATROL (Chris from THIS WILL DESTROY YOU). The release
marks the first non-obscenely-limited output from AUGHRA
and can be found in most independent record stores now.
On March 8, AUGHRA sets out on tour with fellow Virginians
SOUVENIR'S YOUNG AMERICA. Dates are available in the tours section of
this website and MySpace.

North American release has been set for March 27, 2007.
Filmed over the course of late 2005 and 2006, this installment tracks
many of the dynamic characters that make up a small town's skateboarding
presence and features a healthy dose of progressive ideas from everyday
Set to a soundtrack courtesy of Magic Bullet Records & friends (This
Will Destroy You, The All-American Rejects, Sparrows Swarm And Sing, Paul
Michel, Mosh Patrol, New Idea Society, Forensics, Nitro Tokyo, etc.),
BY THE BATTLEFIELD is concrete evidence

skateboarding is reinvented daily.

MASSACRE/CONTROL LIMITED BOX EDITION SELLS
OUT IN HOURS
Before we could even formally list them on this site, all copies of the
MASSACRE OF THE UMBILICAL CORD / CONTROL
split (limited box edition) sold out in a matter of hours.
The boxes contained a copy of the retail CD, a cooked spoon, a syringe,
a spent bullet round (fired by the artist),
and death certificates for Kurt Cobain and Elvis. Customers had to sign
statements that they were 18 years of age or older. Upon the overwhelming
response to this item, it is still unclear whether or not the artist (Magic
Bullet's Brent Eyestone) will be making more for sale.
Copies of the regular CD (no box/paraphernalia, but featuring the original
controversial artwork) can still be purchased in our webstore and your
local record store this month. Be sure to check out MASSACRE
on their exhaustive tour schedule over the next four months, including
shows with DARKEST HOUR, ALABAMA THUNDERPUSSY, and more.
