RELEASES ON MAGIC BULLET
Seminal Skate Rock legends JFA are set to put out various
releases on Virginia's Magic Bullet Records in the coming months. The
band, originally formed in 1981, were part of the tremendously influential
punk/skater movement that erupted from the ditches and bowls of the early
Arizona and California skate scenes. Their efforts and ethic went on to
inspire and influence many (especially Magic Bullet) while JFA
have remained active participants in both music and skateboarding over
More details of these releases will be announced shortly, but fans new
and old can anticipate all formats for your listening and viewing pleasures.
It's truly an honor to be able to support a band that has meant so much
to us for so many years.

BULLET INTRODUCES: EKSI EKSO
At the edge of an impossibly calm reservoir, face down among broken glass
and apocalyptic debris, you have no identification... no recollection
of how you ended up here. Barely mobile and completely taxed, you rise,
fearing what is to be found and not found. Did you initiate this catastrophe
or are you a reluctant survivor left in place to rebuild what’s
This duality is the thematic arc of I Am Your Bastard Wings,
the dramatic full length debut from Boston-based sextet EKSI EKSO
(pronounced 'ex-ee ex-o'). Forged with a sense of triumph and hope when
everything else has been eradicated, the album pendulates over the fine
balance between creation and annihilation: at one second breathy, calm,
and sparse; followed immediately by snaking melodies, unrelenting density
and climactic cacophony.
The latest brainchild from the creative forces behind THE BURNING PARIS
and ON FIRE, EKSI EKSO is poised for meteoric propulsion
via their convergence of atypical rock instrumentation, experimentation
with form, and the breath of collaborative writing via musicians from
very different ends of the sonic spectrum.
Mixed and produced by Grammy-winning producer/engineer Malcolm Burn (PETER
GABRIEL, DANIEL LANOIS), I Am Your Bastard Wings hits stores
June 10, 2008.

WILL DESTROY YOU FEATURED ON NEXT MONTH'S 'PROM NIGHT' MOVIE AND CD SOUNDTRACK
Horror fans will remember the 1980 slasher classic "Prom Night,"
the Paul Lynch film that starred Jamie Lee Curtis and Leslie Nielsen and
a tale of the murderous revenge exacted on 4 teens the night of their
senior prom. Well, 28 years later, our friends at Screen Gems have decided
to remake this cautionary tale for a new generation of horror enthusiasts.
Featuring the directing talents of Nelson McCormick and starring Brittany
Snow, audiences can expect a modern twist on a classic slasher flick.
We're proud to announce that the THIS WILL DESTROY YOU
song "I Believe In Your Victory" appears in both the final cut
of the film and has also been licensed out to the film's official CD soundtrack.
Everyone with the label and band are truly excited to be a part and you
can expect us all to be in the audience with huge tubs of popcorn, screaming
our heads off.
• "Prom Night" debuts in theaters everywhere April 11,
• "Prom Night: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack" (featuring
TIMBALAND, RIHANNA, BRITNEY SPEARS and THIS WILL DESTROY YOU) is in stores
everywhere April 1, 2008.
WILL DESTROY YOU GEAR UP FOR FIRST EVER EUROPEAN TOUR
Our friends at Dial Booking, Rock Sound, and Positive Nuisance have been
working tirelessly in the coordination of THIS WILL DESTROY YOU's
first journey across the Atlantic. The tour begins March 29 with an appearance
at the Rhaaa Lovely Festival in Belgium (alongside DEAD MEADOW) and runs
through to May 5 when the band will take the stage at the renowned Bevrijdingspop
annual festival. In between, numerous countries and venues will be covered,
including gigs with BORIS, THE RAVEONETTES, SLEEPING
PEOPLE, TEPHRA, and DEVIL SOLD HIS SOUL.
All dates can be viewed in the "shows" section of this website.
WILL DESTROY YOU TO BE INTERVIEWED ON THE BBC
We have just confirmed with the BBC that an interview with THIS
WILL DESTROY YOU is to be held at their April 11 gig in Dublin,
Ireland. Expect an in-depth look into the phenomenon surrounding the band's
rapid rise to success and their experiences touring the European continent
for the first time. We will be posting a broadcast schedule of the interview
as soon as it is provided to us by the BBC. Don't miss it.
TO ISSUE THREE SKATEBOARD DECK DESIGNS ON MAGIC BULLET
Easily Japan's finest export, heavy
music trio BORIS have made a name for themselves over
the years by relentlessly issuing some of the coolest and most experimental
audio recordings possible, all at a pace that would kill most bands dead.
The consistent sonic brilliance put forth by long-time friends Atsuo,
Wata, and Takeshi has rightfully garnered critical acclaim and cult worship
around the globe.
It is with great pride that BORIS and Magic Bullet announce
a very special skateboard deck series to be issued in support of the band's
June 2008 United States tour. Comprised of 3 separate designs from the
trusted hand of Stephen O'Malley (SUNN O))), KTL, Khanate, etc.), the
decks will only be made available at tour stops, online via the Magic
Bullet webstore, and locally at Fredericksburg Skateboards (604 Caroline
Street). Stay tuned for art previews and ordering information.
• BORIS' latest album "Smile" is available
on Inoxia Records and Southern Lord
• The band has finally created their own official MySpace page,
which can be be viewed here.
BULLET TO RELEASE THIS WILL DESTROY YOU / LYMBYC SYSTYM SPLIT 10"/CD/DIGITAL
+ BONUS REMIX PROJECT
Magic Bullet is excited to reveal
that we will be putting out a very special split release from THIS
WILL DESTROY YOU and LYMBYC SYSTYM in coordination
with the bands' plans to tour together again later this summer. It will
be the first ever 10" issued on Magic Bullet in over 12 years of
existence and we honestly can't think of two cooler bands to be a part.
We warmly welcome the brotherly duo of Jared and Mike (LYMBYC
SYSTYM) into the Magic Bullet fold and sincerely look forward
to holding this record in our hands.
Slated to be recorded and mixed with John Congleton (BLACK MOUNTAIN, MODEST
MOUSE, EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY) upon return from the European tour, the
record will be available at shows and via mailorder later this summer,
with an official store date in the fall sometime. Following release of
the 10"/CD, diehard fans can also anticipate a very special and very
