Dad Hats | Claustrophobia

We are moving right along into 2024 with a music video from Dad Hats to accompany a vinyl repress of Spill!

Since Spill has been out of print for several months now, we are excited to keep it handy for those who might've missed out. Upon the original release of the album, it was clear that Claustrophobia was a fan favorite, so we talked the band into doing just one more video before they got back to work on LP3. If you poke around, you'll also find we did a super limited 7" with a brand new track on the b-side. Enjoy!

Kai Mark | My Sweet Bird

The midst of frigid winter season is perfect timing for some real bummer music.

It's dark, it's sad, and the full Doll EP will be everywhere on February 23rd. My Sweet Bird is the perfect starting place to introduce Kai Mark to the world.

PACK | Broke And Breathless

Broke and Breathless is the first single off of the new EP from the alt-rock supergroup PACK, and we are honored to share with you the music video today! Additionally, we are rolling out pre-orders for the vinyl version of this EP, which as all four songs packed onto a 10" record with some extraordinary screen printing on both sides of the vinyl. It's truly a sight to behold, and we can't wait for you to hold one in your hands!

On the song, Kelly Tobias (vocalist) tells us: "Broke and Breathless is largely about the the repeat cycles you find yourself in - in all types of relationships. Specifically, it’s about watching a person you love spiral into familiar behavior and doing whatever you can to break them free of it or alternatively just ride through the storm with them.

I fell in love with the initial guitar hook that Josh wrote to begin this song and it really reminds me of that frantic, desperate feeling of trying to keep someone’s feet on the ground."

Bad Rabbits | Stick Up Kids

Well, before we could even put together our thoughts on finally releasing a second pressing of the iconic Stick Up Kids EP, it had already sold completely out. Dang! Thanks to everyone who grabbed a copy. With such a highly anticipated release, it seemed important to put some key info right on the front page here. Read on:

Stick Up Kids FAQ

Why didn't I get an order confirmation email?

    If you got your PayPal receipt, that is your order confirmation. Getting two emails is redundant, so we don't do it.

When will my record ship?

    Orders will ship on or around 2/26. If you ordered from MerchDirect, they are aiming for the same street date, but you'll have to direct specific questions regarding your order directly to them.

Do you have any copies left? I missed out!

    We always hold onto a very small amount in case of USPS errors or damage in transit. Once everyone has receieved their copies, we will send an email and make a small social media announcement on the subject. It's not many, so we don't want to create a frenzy.

When will my Collector's Edition box set ship?

    We are making the shirts to order, so there are only as many shirts as there are box sets. This means that the box sets will likely ship after the 2/26 target date, but we will update once we have the shirts in hand and can begin to assemble them.

Can I change my shirt size?

    We've already placed the shirt order and won't have any extras. Sorry!

Serpent Servant Slave | Headless

It's time to formally welcome Serpent Servant Slave to the MOMR family!

Serpent Servant Slave is the newest musical outfit from Jesse Smith (Zao, Gods, Jesse Smith & The Holy Ghost) alongside his longtime collaborator Breyer White. Today, we are excited to premiere the official music video for their debut single, Whatchu' Doin' Wanting More? which is currently available via all digital streaming sites. We also have the debut LP (titled Headless) available for preorder now. The full album will be available everywhere on 7/31/20!

Pre-order the limited edition vinyl and check out the offical music video for Whatchu Doin' Wanting More? below:


The Skulx | Danger!

The year was 2015 and The Skulx emerged as the rock outfit that we didn't know we were missing. Their eponymous debut LP had our hips swinging and our throats sore from singing along and we've been thirsty for more of their unique stylings ever since.

Thankfully, the wait is over and our boys are back with two brand new songs on a limited edition 7" vinyl! Complete with that signature trumpet-laden back beat swing that we've come to know, these two new songs are still dripping with sex and're certainly going to have these tunes stuck in your head for days!

Listen to their new single "Danger" and order up a 7"


Not Waving But Drowning | New 7"

In late 2017 and early 2018, legendary metalcore masters Not Waving But Drowning resurrected their social media and started posting some amazing throwback show posters ahead of a handful of reunion shows. They also put out a new song in 2018 that was a part of a crazy 7" compilation, and we asked them if they wanted to be a part of our 7" series...boy were we excited when they said YES!

They carved out two brand new songs for all of us, and they pick up right where the band left off previously: they're heavy, they're riffy, they're melodious, and there's just enough in these two tunes to get you pumped up but also leaves you wanting more. Hopefully this is just the beginning for what we can expect from the NWBD dudes in the future!

Listen to their new single "Bright Eyed And Bushy Tailed" and order up a 7".


PACK | I'm On Fire

A few months back, we were lucky enough to have Alternative Press share the song "I'm On Fire" from PACK, and now we are very excited to share that the 7" single that bears the same name is now available for purchase!

For the uninitiated, PACK is the new alt-rock supergroup formed from current members of Zao, The Juliana Theory, and Punchline. Together, they create some incredibly slick guitar riffs matched up with infectious vocal hooks...definitely not the sound you might first expect given their collective musical pasts, but it's incredibly refreshing nonetheless.

Check it out for yourself and order the limited edition 7".


Sunndrug | Bleed Your High

We are beyond pumped to be bringing you some new music from Sunndrug! It's been nearly two years since we released Exit Wounds, but these guys spent their time wisely, honing their craft and continuing to dial in their unique blend of alt rock and electronica. Check out the Bleed Your High music video below and pre-order their new 7" now!


Pre-Order | Everything Needs Something...I Need Your Light!

The time has come. We've had the new single from Holy+Gold out into the wild for a couple of weeks and it is time to submit for your preorder the vinyl version of Everything Needs Something...I Need Your Light! You can preorder the vinyl here and you can find Poisoned Wombs at Spotify or you can watch the lyric video below.
