THIS WILL DESTROY YOU REALIZE FORMAL RETAIL
RELEASE OF "YOUNG MOUNTAIN" CD, PREPARE FOR FIRST TOUR
June 6, 2006, Young Mountain, the stunning debut from San Marcos,
Texas' pride and joy THIS WILL DESTROY YOU hit stores worldwide on Magic
Bullet Records. This astounding 6-song full length can now be picked up
at your favorite independent record store and select chains. If you local
store does not have copies in stock, please make sure they pick some up
(or you can order the album online from your preferred mailorder site
or distro). For the digitally-inclined, the album is currently available
and will be available via iTunes
within the week.
Beginning July 17, the band sets out on their first ever tour with label
mates SPARROWS SWARM AND SING. We could not be happier about this tour,
as these are two of the most exciting bands one could ever witness on
the same bill. To commemorate THIS WILL DESTROY YOU's maiden voyage across
the nation's highways, Magic Bullet Records will be issuing a very special
limited edition tour cassette featuring Young Mountain in its
entirety, special remix versions of selections from the album, and labor-intensive
Vinyl fans rejoice: upon return from tour, Magic Bullet Records will be
issuing Young Mountain on LP format, complete with hand-screened
artwork and a bonus disc containing remixed tracks from the album.

SPARROWS SWARM AND SING COMPLETE "O'SHENANDOAH, MIGHTY DEATH WILL
off the heels of almost 4 months of studio sessions, SPARROWS SWARM AND
SING have turned in their Magic Bullet Records' debut O'Shenandoah,
Mighty Death Will Find Me. Clocking in at over 79 minutes spanning
four robust movements, O'Shenandoah
will no doubt prove to be one of the most uniquely dynamic and challenging
"rock" albums you will ever purchase in your life.
In the coming days, Magic Bullet Records and SPARROWS
SWARM AND SING will be streaming previews from the album
for the first time publicly. Given the almost cinematic compositions of
these previews will only offer fleeting glimpses of what is contained
on this album, as it is truly one to experience from beginning to end.
Mighty Death Will Find Me (CD version) hits stores
worldwide on August 8, 2006. Those fortunate enough to catch the band
on their 2-month U.S. tour (beginning later this month) will be able to
purchase copies well in advance. Magic Bullet Records will also soon be
offering pre-orders for mailorder customers, featuring special packaging
and components unavailable elsewhere. The band and label are currently
making vinyl plans to be unleashed at some point this fall, which should
exceed all anticipation and expectations.
As a bonus for those attending SSAS tour dates this summer (and MBR's
diehard mailorder contingent), Magic Bullet Records will be issuing a
very special cassette containing demo tracks made during the pre-production
phases of O'Shenandoah.
The edition will be rather small and will feature hand-painted art, so
be sure to check the merch table and the MBR site this summer.

DOOMRIDERS LIVE MP3'S POSTED, "BLACK THUNDER" REPRESS SLATED
FOR LATE SUMMER
Truly the sickest live rock and roll band
in the world, our dudes in the almighty DOOMRIDERS recently brought their
live devastation to the studios of WMBR up in Boston. Aural evidence can
be found loaded in their MySpace player here,
where you can download scorching live renditions of Sirens, Ride Or
Die, and Worthless.
The first pressing of Black Thunder is nearly gone and, as such,
we'll be issuing a special repressing featuring silkscreened covers and
white vinyl. More details will become available in the coming weeks, so
MAGIC BULLET RECORDS' ALUMNI SOMETREE RELEASE "BENDING THE WILLOW"

CD IN STORES NOW
At long last, the collected works of THE BURNING PARIS have been issued
on one handy compact disc that will hit store shelves on May 23, 2006.

a CD for the collective back in their heyday. Half-Truths & Indiscretions

and EP (And By December You Will Know Where Your Heart Truly Lies)
as well as other rarities and unreleased material, all remastered for
