Welcome back. First of all, a big thank you to everyone who ordered the new Column 7″. The response to the pre-order was outstanding, and it’s been a lot of fun hearing from folks who’ve already received their records in the mail. That said, all Column-related orders as of today have shipped! If yours is an international order, give it a couple of weeks at least (hopefully it won’t take that long, but you never know).
Getting on with it, there have been a number of awesome labels out there who were cool enough to take a few copies of the new record for distribution. You can find all (both) Negative Split releases in the web stores and distro sections of REACT! Records, GRAVE MISTAKE Records, REVELATION Records, and Glory Kid LTD. Also, Europe: check out ASSAULT Records and you can pick up the records there. Support these hard working labels, buy some cool shit, maybe even save a few bucks on shipping.
However, if you really need that limited clear vinyl, I’ve got just a handful left. First come, first served, so come and get ’em. Also, a few of each size t-shirt left up on the webstore. Those suckers came off the press on Tuesday, went into an envelope Wednesday night, and into the Postmaster General’s hands this afternoon. They are so choice. You’ll be happy you bought one.
And finally, a NW show announcement. Both Clarity and Column will be playing August 13th in Everett, WA at the Creatives Underground Theater with Ill Intent and Singled Out. More TBA, flyer coming soon.
First pressing: 100 clear vinyl, 400 black.
At last. The vinyl release of the long awaited Column demo is finally available to order from Negative Split Records. Seattle’s Column boasts a roster of long standing Northwest hardcore alumni (Get the Most, Not Sorry, Wreck, Devotion, et al). The demo features five songs in the spirit of Mouthpiece and Chain; showcasing the stripped-down and underlying fundamentals of true hardcore. Appropriate for all edgemen, punx, and bangers. The covers are also screen printed and they look cool as hell.
After the record release this past weekend at Rain Fest, there are now just 50 or so clear vinyl copies available for pre-order, so act accordingly. Orders are expected to ship within a couple of weeks.
Records will be also be available for purchase in distros all over once pre-orders are ready to ship. Europe too. More on that to be announce later. In the meantime, pick up the record.
I’m excited to announce that the 2013 demo from Seattle’s own Column will be coming out this spring on Negative Split Records. It was a long time coming for these songs to finally materialize. Some things still are just worth waiting for, though. This primal-sounding and stripped down demo of straight edge hardcore blew me away when I first heard it, and easily became one of my favorite favorite releases of last year. I’m happy to give these songs the vinyl treatment they deserves, complete with remastered audio and new artwork. More info to come soon. Check out the demo in full below. You’ll be happy you did.
The time has finally come! Clarity’s new record, UNSTOPPABLE, is available at last to order through the new webstore. After the record release shows in Seattle and Vancouver, B.C. earlier this month, and the very first copies with regular artwork available at Rainfest, I’m very proud and excited to bring this new EP into the world for everyone to check out. You can click the link here or at the very top of the page to be redirected to the webstore. There are also a couple of other bangers up there that are definitely worth your time and money, so be sure to check them out…
1st pressing : 100 black, 150 white, 250 blue. White and blue vinyl available from NSR, black vinyl available exclusively through the band and going fast.

First off, I’m happy to announce that the plant has finished pressing our records and that they will be shipping out our way this week!
That being said, I’m even more excited to announce that on Saturday, May the 4th, Mosher’s 30th Birthday Extravaganza will also double as Clarity’s RECORD RELEASE SHOW. Come out and rage with friends and great northwest bands, sing along to some Descendents songs, and pick up the record! There has also been a lot of talk about there being birthday cake as if you needed more incentive to go.
In the next few days, UNSTOPPABLE will be set up for streaming in its entirety for you to check out. In the meantime, go to http://clarityxnw.bandcamp.com/ and listen to the title track to get a taste.
Advance tour copies of the record rolled in this this week, so take a look at the final result.
We think it looks pretty slick. Lyrics sheet and digital download card included, limited to 50. A big thank you to John 25 for all of his work with the layout and tour covers, and also to Ev and Jim of REACT! for hooking Negative Split up with download codes for the record. Test presses have been approved, so Clarity is tentatively planning on a record release sometime in early May, assuming things keep going our way.
In the meantime, catch Clarity on tour next week, pick up a record, then take them to Dairy Queen.
