SWARM AND SING GEAR STOLEN, PAYPAL FUND ESTABLISHED
Last night in Portland, Oregon, SPARROWS
SWARM AND SING had their trailer broken into, resulting in thousands of
dollars of vintage/irreplaceable stolen equipment.
There is still a month left on the band's summer tour of the United States.
Being down two drum kits and two amp heads presents an obviously daunting
challenge in terms of being able to finish, especially 3000 miles from
In the event that you are reading this and wish to donate money into the
band's Paypal account for the procurement of replacement equipment, you
can do so via the following means:
* Paypal address = GENMALL7@gmail.com
* Subject line = "Sparrows Donation"

SPARROWS SWARM AND SING "O'SHENANDOAH DEMOS (WINTER 2005-06)"
TOUR CASSETTE NOW AVAILABLE
Prior to recording the 79-minute opus O'Shenandoah,
Mighty Death Will Find Me (CD in North American stores August 8,
UK/Europe August 21), SPARROWS SWARM AND SING spent months writing, arranging,
and cutting demos of material that would ultimately serve as foundations
for the entire record. These recordings were previously only passed around
between the band's inner circle and unavailable to the public. These were
also the recordings (in conjunction with the live show) that helped the
band find O'Shenandoah a home at Magic Bullet Records.
To celebrate SPARROWS SWARM AND SING's 2-month U.S. tour (and make these
previously unheard demo available to diehard fans of the band), Magic
Bullet Records has issued a very limited run of cassettes containing this
The cassette is packaged within a hand-painted art piece - drawn and painted
by MBR's Brent Eyestone. The first edition is limited to 100 pieces -
50 on tour with the band, 50 at MBR. Be sure to catch the tour when it
comes to your town!

MASSACRE OF THE UMBILICAL
CORD DEBUT IN STORES SEPTEMBER 12, SPLIT WITH CONTROL ANNOUNCED
At long last, MASSACRE OF THE UMBILICAL CORD's I'm Surprised He Hasn't
Killed Anyone will mark the band's official Magic Bullet Records
debut on September 12, 2006. Previously only existing as a self-released
CD-R sold on the road, the recording is now getting a grand makeover courtesy
of re-mastering via Josh Bonati and new artwork from Daniel Danger and
Brent Eyestone. Preview Mp3's and another insane CD pre-order will be
available in the coming weeks, so keep checking back.
We can also announce yet another fall release involving MASSACRE. We're
happy to let everyone know that the band will be doing a split with Charlotte,
NC lunatics CONTROL on Magic Bullet Records. After having discovered both
bands' music and completely homicidal live shows on the last FORENSICS
tour, pairing the two seemed only natural at some point and we can't wait
for this one to wrap up. Expect release date information and other news
surrounding this ungodly pairing soon.
