Hey everyone! We have a HUGE update for you here! We've been SUPER busy here at the Rainy Road HQ, so read on to see what we've been up to!!
The long-awaited Baby Tears-Rusty Years LPs are in and ready ship! The LP has been released in cooperation with Omaha's DOOM TOWN RECORDS. Records are limited to ONLY 200 copies on black vinyl with screen printed covers, zerox inserts with lyrics and comes with FREE DOWNLOAD CODE!! All pre-orders will ship early next week.
Also out now is the Worried Mothers-S/T cassette! These Sioux City transplants picked up and moved to Omaha in March, 2011, and offer up 10 brand new tracks of experimental, maniacal psych-punk, though their music and live set set are "unclassifiable and blisteringly beautiful, fueled by animalistic drums and pummeling guitars and interwoven with mid-century radio broadcasts." -Omahype
Limited to 100 copies on red cassette, with download code!
We are gearing up for a double release show and label showcase Sunday, Oct 7th at Barley Street Tavern in Omaha, NE. Sharing the stage will be Baby Tears, Worried Mothers, Peace of Shit, and Lenguas Largas from Tucson, AZ. More details from the show will be announced soon.
Up next will be a CDR replication of Watching the Train Wreck's "Serve Very Loud" 7". The sold out lathe-cut 7" was limited to only 50 copies. The CDR will be limited to only 30 copies, and will be made to resemble the 7" in every detail, from the screen printed covers to the center labels featuring a homeless man holding a cardboard sign with the song titles, except it is a CDR, and not a 7".
Also coming up will be a Rainy Road compilation cassette, featuring all of your favorite scum fuck Rainy Road bands including some previously unreleased Brimstone Howl tracks!! Super excited for this and more details will be announced when we have em!
Also AVAILABLE NOW are the Peace of Shit-Business As Usual cassette, Snake Island! S/T cassette, and Brimstone Howl-Singles Collection cassette reissues!! Check em out!! New items have been added to the mailorder, so jump all over those before they're gone!! It's been a great year here at the Rainy Road HQ and we hope this finds everyone in good spirits!!
We are now taking pre-orders for the upcoming Baby Tears "Rusty Years" LP. This is the first full length LP for both Baby Tears and Rainy Road. Pre-order comes with an immediate download of the entire album and is available NOW at our Bandcamp site HERE. LP will be limited to only 200 copies on black vinyl with screen printed covers.
"This disgusting slab is drippng with scab picked riffs, slut skutt groves, and melodic howls that are more infectious than a ten dollar hooker... this record stabbed my turntable and shot up with the needle. Now my whole record collection has AIDS". -Wayne Pain (ex-Fag Cop)
The next release will be Snake Island!'s S/T cassette. The release date is set for Friday, June 22nd at the Waiting Room Lounge in Omaha, where they will be sharing the stage with Rock, Paper, Dynamite, Dim Light, and The Decatures. This show will also serve as Snake Island!'s vinyl re-release and tour kick-off party. Advanced copies of the cassette will be available on our website soon.
We have just changed our shipping address from our PO Box in midtown Omaha, NE to our recently opened screen printing studio downtown. The new address will be posted on our "CONTACT" page HERE.
Omaha's Rock N Roll outfit Saudi Arabia(formerly the Dinks) have announced that "after nearly 4 years of debauchery, different band names, member changes, and full on rock and fuckin roll", that they will be "hanging it up". But not a minute before recording their entire catalog and releasing a 15-song cassette on Rainy Road Records, due out just in time for one final showdown!! Their final show and cassette release will be Saturday, March 10th at O’leaver’s Pub with the debut performance of Thee Eightysevens(members of Bloodcow).
Peace of Shit will be releasing his second album, "Business As Usual", in cassette form on Rainy Road Records. The release date is set for Saturday, March 24th at Brothers Lounge where they will be sharing the stage with Digital Leather and Baby Tears!! I have yet to see an event page for this show, but I've been told about it by members of all three bands, so I guess that means its on. Pre-orders for both of these releases will start sometime around the end of February/early March.

Our first releases of 2012 are already in the works, and we are excited to release the details once things get finalized and closer to having a release date. Sign up for our mailing list above to be the first to hear about them and get special offers on pre-orders, downloads and more!!
