Jesuit: full reunion set posted

Our friend Rich Hall recently posted the entire set from JESUIT‘s reunion at Santos Party House in SoHo this past April. This was the first time the band played with 3 guitarists and it sounded entirely massive.

In case you missed it, the internet’s got you covered:

A not-so-brief list of what’s next:

We’ve had about a month or so now to cool down from the JESUIT Discography LP+7″/CD and BIG CHINA & LITTLE TROUBLE Lo-Panning LP mailorder workload/crush. Thanks to everyone who supported those releases with such enthusiasm. It was an insane amount of work putting every facet of both together, but entirely worth it. Nothing feels better than seeing tub after tub of mailers head out of here and off to their new destinations.

All that being said, things are about to get beyond ridiculous later this summer/early fall. The following update is for things that are actually in various stages of production. I’ve omitted the “coming soon” list and other projects in the pipeline because this is more than enough for everyone to process right now as-is. If you don’t see something on this list that may have been talked about in previous updates, no worries… it just means that it’s not in this next crop. Here’s what we’re actively working on right now and what you can expect next:

NEW RELEASES:
VERMAPYRE | IDES OF GEMINI split 12″
SSORC Infidel Eternal LP+7″
SUTEKH HEXEN Behind the Throne LP
CHARLES MANSON Trees LP/CD/digital
• T0-be-named-project 12″ featuring Ryan Parrish of Darkest Hour, Graham Scala and Brent Eyestone of Highness and Meditative Sect, etc. Currently being mixed.
VERMAPYRE DVD (co-release with We Tried Film, a new film division within Magic Bullet)
CHARLES MANSON The Inner Sanctum 7″ reissue (licensed from Holy Terror)
BOY SETS FIRE This Crying, This Screaming, My Voice is Being Born. LP (marking the 15th anniversary of Magic Bullet Records and Magic Bullet #1)

REPRESSES:

Coming soon…

You’re looking at test presses for the JESUIT discography LP + demo 7″.

This means that we’re mere weeks away from this mammoth project finally seeing release AND the band reuniting for one special night in New York City on April 9 at Santos Party House in SoHo. We hope to see you there.

Please don’t email us about pre-orders or pressing info. Not only is it a huge waste of time for all of us, but we don’t sell anything until we have it physically in hand. So basically, when we have the finished copies to sell… we’ll sell them!

The best way to be notified when everything is up for sale is to follow the label’s Twitter and/or Facebook. Or just keep checking here on the website and webstore.

Magic Bullet 2010 Year-End Podcast Available for Free Download!

As 2010 nears its end, reflection mode has kicked in and I’m realizing what an unbelievable year it’s truly been. If anyone were to tell you that CHRISTIE FRONT DRIVE, INTEGRITY, THE ALL-AMERICAN REJECTS, and CHARLES MANSON would not only have records on the same label, but all in the same year, it’s not very likely that you could envision any scenario where that were possible. And yet that somehow happened. CHRISTIE FRONT DRIVE‘s S/T (aka The Stereo Record) was unearthed and remastered, INTEGRITY gave us two of the greatest songs the band has ever written, THE ALL-AMERICAN REJECTS brought their latest studio record over here (our first certified gold record!), and we somehow locked down four previously unheard CHARLES MANSON records for release.

This was all on top of a band new THIS WILL DESTROY YOU pic disc, a YEARS double album, MADE OUT OF BABIESThe Ruiner finally seeing LP treatment, GHASTLY CITY SLEEP‘s debut full length Moondrifts, MEDITATIVE SECT‘s Laceration Points LP, a letterpress/reissue edition of FORENSICSThings to Do… LP, FORENSICS You Don’t Have to Win, But You Have to Fight, and represses galore.

Basically, a lot of shit went down and I fully understand if it was tough to keep up with everything. As a means to show appreciation and perhaps even make sure that nothing slipped through the cracks in your search for new music, I stayed in (this is not a new phenomenon) and put together a podcast (this is a new phenomenon) featuring about 80 minutes of jams and commentary. You can pull it down from:

http://www.magicbulletrecords.com/freebies/mbr2010pod.zip

The show features plenty of highlights from 2010, some crucial 2009 stuff you may have missed, and a look ahead at 2011. Bands featured: DISAPPEARER, CHRISTIE FRONT DRIVE, THE ALL-AMERICAN REJECTS, CHARLES MANSON, INTEGRITY, FORENSICS, DOOMRIDERS, YEARS, GHASTLY CITY SLEEP, MEDITATIVE SECT, GOLDEN CITY, A CITY SAFE FROM SEA, JESUIT, SSORC, THIS WILL DESTROY YOU, and MADE OUT OF BABIES.

It was fun making this and I hope you enjoy listening to it.

Happy Holidays,
Brent
