Octaves (Bridge 9 Records)

FREE SHIT IF YOU SHOW EARLY
Whoa! Bands we’ve worked with past & present collide on one awesome show:
Baltimore: Do NOT miss Pianos Become The Teeth, Defeater, Sainthood Reps & Octaves playing Ottobar tomorrow!! I’m to understand their are less than 50 tickets left and that Pianos will have their exclusive variant of their split 7” with Touche Amore available.
another poster coming up, this time for Pianos Become the Teeth?s hometown show at the end of the month. This will also be a limited edition of 40 posters for sale at the show. 2 color screen print on 80lb 12.5x19? speckled paper. Any extras after the show will be available from my webstore.
This is gonna be a real good jammy.
The response to this Touche Amore / Pianos Become The Teeth split has been UNREAL. Thank you! Just a heads up: record bundles, package deal exclusive colors and the split halves variants are all sold out with the last copies of the exclusive gold variant about to be gone. All orders come with an immediate download which includes free courtesy tracks from Caravels & Octaves.
Order the record on vinyl, exclusive shirts, package deals, bundles and more at the Topshelf store (instant downloads of the record with free bonus tracks from Caravels and Octaves)
Pick it up digitally on the Topshelf bandcamp (with free bonus tracks from Caravels and Octaves)

As we announced earlier this year, We’ll be releasing Octaves’ Greener Pastures on vinyl on February 26, 2013! It’s up for pre-order now if you’d like to pick up a copy. If you’re an interested but otherwise unconvinced and responsible purchaser of vinyl recordings, please read on:
Originally released on CD and digitally by Hotfoot Records in 2010, the vinyl version of Greener Pastures features all-new artwork from our buddy August Schwartz (he does all the Pianos Become the Teeth artwork and has really chiseled abs, you guys). The Baltimore noise mongers have been compared to such bands as Dillinger Escape Plan and The Bled. As you’ll see below, they’re really good at sports and Limp Bizkit:
In its review of Greener Pastures, Alterthepress.com described it as ? and I quote:
??technical and dissonant, yet surprisingly melodic hardcore that impacts like a fist-fight but has impressive depth beyond its initial immediacy.?
Which is kinda how I feel about it as well.
Hey! We will be releasing our buds in Octaves’ first record Greener Pastures on vinyl for the first time in early 2013. Originally released by Hotfoot Records in 2010 via CD and digitally, the vinyl version will feature all-new artwork. We are stoked. The first time I met Octaves, we shotgunned beers before even formally introducing ourselves so this ought to be a great relationship. Also, lookit how critically good they are:
“…technical and dissonant, yet surprisingly melodic hardcore that impacts like a fist-fight but has impressive depth beyond its initial immediacy.”
