Thumper Punk Records Comes to An End 2008-2018

David has announced an end to the much loved and adored Christian punk rock label, Thumper Punk Records. He started it as a music site in 2008 and we all watched it grow as a record label the past 10 years. Him and his label will be sorely missed but we commend him for wanting to devote more time to his family. It’s tough in this scene and I know exactly how he feel coming from my perspective. With my experience the past 18 years I can tell you honestly that I have thrown in the towel a few times, wanted to a few more times, and have been battling personal doubts about my work even more times. It isn’t easy managing full time work, family, and trying to keep expenses under control. We all do it out of love for the scene and deeply feel drawn towards sharing our piece of hope with a crowd that isn’t so welcoming these days. That’s the point though, to share in times of darkness, doubt, and disbelief. Anyway, I thank David for the years of support, the years of awesome underground punk rock music with a real message, and for giving these bands a platform when so many others in the “industry” look the other way for more desirable returns on their investments. We all know that’s not the purpose and David is real proof that risk taking is more important than safety. JCHC for life! Read the full statement below and a little teaser by me. Continued →

Mainframe Announce "Burn The Boats Ep"

I am proud to announce the next IVM release which will be a follow up EP from Mainframe titled “Burn The Boats”. This 6 track ep will feature some of that same feel from the Debut last summer and continue on the trend started with the recent “Undivided Devotion” but taken to a whole new level. The ep will feature a special punk rock “cover” song along with a bunch of other great originals. Read a little blurb from NoahMainframe, below. Release date has yet to be determined. Stay tuned

“I wanted to let you know I’ve been working with guitar hero Demetrio Scopelliti on a new Mainframe song called “Peter,” based on the life and writings of the apostle. I asked Demetrio for advice when I couldn’t get my guitars to push out the “metal” sound I was looking for. He ending up recording the guitars for this track in his style (he plays 8 string!), and it sounds great! It’s going to make a great addition to Burn the Boats.” Continued →

Whether or not this is true remains a mystery much like the band themselves. Let’s hope for one more rockin’ ruckus of a new album. The band last released “Late News Breaking” in 2004. Continued →
