DOWN I GO – at a theater near you!

September 29, 2011

DOWN I GO: Premiere New Music Video at the Aubin Cinema, London.

Not long ago, we received an email from a group of talented mofos that we’re fortunate to call our amigos. We’ve been huge fans of Down I Go from the moment we laid our ears on ’em and our eyes on their incredible video for A Wasp In Jar.

So, what was in this email you ask? A link – to their final EP, GODS and POSEIDON, a new video
directed by the mighty Adam Powell (if you aren’t familiar with Adam… look up his work now!)

Down I Go’s first video in 2007 was directed by Adam, and only those of you who’ve seen it will know how sick it is when these two forces combine. If you haven’t seen it, we urge you to check it!

POSEIDON
Nothing we can tell you can overhype this. You’re all in for one hellova show.
This is one of those amazing rare moments when a bunch of talented mofos get together to produce something monumental, totally DIY with basically zero money.

To celebrate the launch of POSEIDON, Down I Go will be hosting a FREE viewing party at the Aubin Cinema in London,  on October 8, where the video will be premiered on the cinema’s biggest screen. The video will also go live online here: http://www.downigo.com on the same day and shelsmusic will start taking pre-orders for GODS too.

Unfortunately Down I Go will cease to exist after they release their final EP on November 7th.
The EP will be limited to 300 copies on Vinyl and via digital download and will be available at http://www.shelsmusic.com

So, if you live nearby then grab your friends and head down to the Aubin Cinema.
You’ll get to watch one of the coolest music videos ever, at one of the coolest cinemas ever, have some drinks and bid  farewell to one of the coolest groups ever.
There’ll be live performances and loads of FREE giveaways too, including copies of past Down I Go releases and more…

Here’s more info on the event Facebook Event Page:

see ya’ll there! 🙂

DOWN I GO!

September 7, 2011

DOWN I GO TO RELEASE FINAL EP THROUGH SHELSMUSIC.

On November 7, 2011 shelsmusic will release DOWN I GO’s final EP, Gods.

Formed in 2005 and respected as one of the most innovative hardcore bands of the last decade DOWN I GO have consistently surpassed expectations and defied logic with their chaotic, genre-defying blend of noise-core. Accredited with creating sub-genres such as Disastercore and Robotcore, among others, and with 3 albums, 2 EPs and a trail of other random recordings behind them, DOWN I GO have been an ice cool breeze in a scene that has been drowning in it’s own stink.

Satisfyingly chaotic and therapeutically volatile, DOWN I GO have always been DIY to the core with their self produced recordings, videos and artwork – their focus has always been the music, their loyal cult following and the sharp messages that lay within layers of the noisy, twisted and satirical transmissions. Their final farewell is a sombre event for their peers and fans – and the icing on the cake of an incredible repertoire that will resonate for years to come. And it’s no surprise that after tackling themes like Dictators, Disasters, Dinosaurs and Robots, in previous releases, DOWN I GO have saved the Gods for last.

 

As with previous releases, Gods is not a simple collection of songs… it’s an event that needs to be appreciated as a whole. Like a play, choreographed by lunatics at an insane asylum it shrieks and twists chaotically. Press play and DOWN I GO will take you down with them… and wherever that is… it’s frikkin’ awesome. Gods will crush your face and rearrange your brain molecules – in a good way. Charlie Sheen has nightmares about getting his pussy destroyed by this band.


DOWN I GO will release their final self produced EP, Gods on Nov 7th through Shelsmusic. Pre-orders will go on sale on October 7th. The release will be a limited edition pressing on Vinyl and digital only and available at http://www.shelsmusic.com. The group have also completed a video with Director Adam Powell, which will be released on October 7.

If you are unfamiliar with DOWN I GO click on this link for some of their previous work.

Please head over to facebook.com/downigo now. First person to post “Fudging Awesome” on their wall will get a free copy of the record on Vinyl. First 10 people will get a free download of the album.

mucho love and respect.

Ancients Release Debut Single!

August 14, 2011

ANCIENTS RELEASE DEBUT SINGLE ON SEPTEMBER 26th ON SHELSMUSIC

After the demise of one of UK underground metal’s brightest talents, Rinoa – fans of epic hardcore music were left with a gaping hole in their universe. Fortunately, news of the split was shortly followed with an announcement by core Rinoa members to continue with a new incarnation that would take Rinoa’s unique vision to colossal new heights – or as the group would say: “a new constellation.”

Joined this time by Mehdi Safa (of *shels and Mahumodo) on vocals and Crydebris drummer Daniel Hoang  – ANCIENTS will unleash their debut 3-track single through Shelsmusic this September. And it’s no surprise that the group’s debut features such track titles as ‘Constellations’ and ‘De Stella Nova’ (the new star) to describe the fusion of unique elements that have come together to create a heavy musical journey like nothing before.

Ancients – “Constellations”
by shelsmusic

As ‘Constellations’ patiently unravels, it’s not long before you realise that something new
and monumental is on the verge of being delivered – and then it explodes into what feels like the soundtrack  to the birth of a thousand stars. It’s clear that ANCIENTS have not only retained the emotion and blistering power of all their past and present incarnations – but have also refined, transcended and perfected the art of making heavy music. But, this is more than just “Heavy”, this is colossal, delicate and beautiful – as giant slabs of distorted guitar intertwine with soaring vocals that scream like sirens of light – listeners are left recovering from the overwhelming dose of energy and emotion delivered.

This isn’t just a single – this is a mission statement by a band that are out to reshape music as we know it. ANCIENTS have arrived.

 

‘Constellations’ will be available as a limited edition single on CD (only 100 hand-screen-
printed copies and Digital.  The group have also started work on an EP that is being produced by Safa and Jonny Renshaw (Devil Sold His Soul). It’s scheduled for release early next year.

 

Watch the official Trailer for the new single HERE:

 

Mucho love and respect!

Go, Go, Gadget SHELSMUSIC!

June 16, 2011

1. LABEL UPDATE!
2. *SHELS ALBUM UPDATE
3. ANCIENTS – RELEASE DEBUT SINGLE & PLAN FOR EP 

4. LATITUDES NEW ALBUM
5. THE ASCENT OF EVEREST – US/CANDA TOUR AND VIDEO

1. LABEL UPDATE!

sorry for the lack of label updates y’all! we’re still here… promise!

and now that Plains of the Purple Buffalo is on the verge of being unleashed to the world we figured it’d be a good time to squeeze in a quick shelsmusic update!

so, last year we unleashed a ton of yummy stuff from our hives. 7 new releases, including debuts by Brother/Ghost & Pretend, a new Admiral Angry EP on Vinyl, new albums by Ef and The Ascent of Everest and our very first ever Label Compilation 🙂 we then took some much needed time to finish our own new album Plains of the Purple Buffalo

being the small DIY operation that we are, we’ve had to be super picky about the projects we’ve gotten involved with in the past.. and starting NOW we’re gonna be even more picky – we’re gonna focus on fewer releases every year, maybe 3 or 4 max – and put more TIGEERRRUUPPERCUTS into every one. yeah. 

so, 2011 will kick off for shelsmusic with the new *shels album Plains of the Purple Buffalo

– and followed by the debut single and then EP by Ancients – featuring members of Rinoa, Crydebris and *shels.

 

We’ll also be announcing another new release soon – just waiting to confirm it, but this thing has had us jizzing in our panties non-stop for the last few weeks… so stay tuned for more news on that!


we’re looking forward to getting back to work with the label and as bringing you awesome music from around the planet. we’re super stoked to be doing what we do – working with some of the coolest artists and musicians from around the world – And we’re totally blessed to have the most awesome and dedicated music lovers on the planet following and supporting what we do – we promise to keep working our asses off for you to bring you the best shit we can!

see below for other bits and pieces from our magical kingdom:

mucho love and respect!

6. BLACK SHEEP WALL – TOUR AND NEW ALBUM
In 2008 we introduced you to one of the heaviest bands on the planet. and after witnessing LA sludge metal doomers Black Sheep Wall completely tear it up at Murderfest alongside Converge, The Red Chord and others earlier that year – we knew the world was in for another A Hole being torn. 

following the incredible response from around the world to their crushing debut album ‘I Am God Songs’ Black Sheep Wall proceeded to go through some turbulent periods – and as with all super hazardous compounds, the band was on the verge of collapse on more than one occasion.. but we’re happy to report that Black Sheep Wall are not only still standing.. but their form is more brutal than ever before – and with a new album on the verge of being released the group is currently touring the US – the band recently signed to Southern Lord Records, which has been home to such groups as Mayhem,Morbid AngelKylesa, and Dillinger Escape Plan and while we’ll be sad to see these mofos leave our nest, we’re proud to have been involved and super excited about their future, which is burning brightly. you can get more info about the new BSW album and their current tour on their Facebook Book page here.
