Sass Dragons new LP and TAPE ‘True Adventure’

The 6-year wait is over, friends! Our favorite Chicago punk rock goof balls, Sass Dragons, new LP and TAPE ‘True Adventure’ is out on Let’s Pretend Records NOW! The Sass Dragons 4th LP is also a split release with our brother label, No Breaks Records from Atlanta, GA. ‘True Adventure’ strays away from party punk and instead focuses on the humor of getting old. As always, we are looking forward to what they are going to bring next.

Nervosas S/T 3rd and FINAL pressing is available NOW

Although we are all super bummed about this band’s break up, LPR is still very stoked to do a third pressing of this record. This third pressing has a few new features to make it an awesome addition to your vinyl collection. This double LP is pressed on randomly mixed colored vinyl with an etching on the D-side, no screen print. The jackets have been upgraded to a thicker cardstock with a wide spine to fit both records better. Don’t snooze on this final release from Columbus, OH’s speed-goth punk, Nervosas.
