We just wanted to let everyone know (again) that the Gameface/Violent Hearts 7″s didn’t get lost in the mail and we didn’t run away to sunny place with your money, this time around it’s out of our hands. The pressing plant we ordered the records from this time promised to deliver the records 1,5 months ago so we would have had enough time to send the records out to all of you to have them on your doorsteps for the release date. Covers are all printed and ready to get married to the vinyl as soon as we get ahold of it and believe us, we are trying to get answers ourselves as to when we will get the vinyl. As soon as we know more, you’ll know asap, too, thanks for your patience and support!
Today you can all finally listen to the b-side of the Gameface 7″, a cover of “Mirrors” by Justin Timberlake:
Ok, we noticed that you really like the THE VIOLENT HEARTS / SHARKS “Show Of Hands” raffle. So we sent our intern back to the warehouse to find some other cool stuff. What he found?
A testpress of YOUR FAVORITE TRAINWRECKs “The Brilliance” EP! We released this one-sided 10″ in 12/2011 (CAH005)! It features Jeff Caudill of Gameface and Popeye V. of Farside sharing the songwriting, lead singing and guitar duties of 3 amazing songs (+ a remix). The testpress has a golden-colored screenprint on the b-side and is limited to 15 copies!
We decided to celebrate the new GAMEFACE 7″ and raffle the YFT testpress among all “Regular Size” pre-orders. So just pre-order the new GAMEFACE 7″ in our webstore and perhaps you’ll be the lucky winner of the super-rare YFT testpress!
So all in all we have two raffles at http://shop.coffeebreathandheartache.com/ right now:
1.) Pre-order the THE VIOLENT HEARTS 7″ and you’ve got the chance to win a SHARKS “Show of Hands” testpress or a copy of the first pressing of this alltime favorite.
2.) Pre-order the GAMEFACE 7″ and you’ve got the chance to win the YFT testpress!
(Ok, we don’t have an intern or a warehouse)
Ok, we know, when we announced the The Violent Hearts 7″ you all started listening to the old Sharks stuff again and some of you became sad, because they missed the “Show Of Hands” EP which sold out years ago. What a pity, but hey – we have something for you:
When we cleaned up our huuuge warehouse, we found a copy of the 1st pressing (!!!) and a testpress (!!!!!!!!) of this all time favorite. And we decided to not sell them on ebay! Instead we’ll give them away for free! How to get one of these?
Just pre-order the TVH 7″! The records are being raffled among all “The Penalty” pre-orders and will be sent to the two winners with the 7″!
Finally it’s that time again, we are starting preorders for the Gameface and The Violent Hearts 7″s! Both are available in 2 different variants, but we even have a special special treat for the first 50 people to order the Gameface 7″:
YOU’LL GET A HANDSEWN, SCREENPRINTED BAG HOUSING THE 7″!
The “The Violent Hearts” 7″s come with a screenprinted b-side featuring artwork by Jens of Blue Harvest Tattoo so you won’t be sorry there’s no bag for this vinyl pleasure.
If you think that sounds great and you could find a special place in your heart for 2 beautiful records full of amazing music, here’s the link to order them (damn, that took a while to get here, we know!):
This sunday we’ll have a little surprise for everyone as we’re putting on a last minute show for one of the recent additions to the ever growing family! Clipwing will be playing at Nr. z. P. / Cuties in Bielefeld on sunday and you can fin all information here.
Since they haven’t released any full songs of the upcoming “Ashford” EP for streaming, this might be your first chance to hear the new songs and it’s well worth leaving your couch for an hour or two!
In other news, here is the Lyric Video for “Regular Size” by Gameface:
Okay, here it is, the announcement we have been planning for quite some time now!!!
We’ll release the new Gameface 7″ for the standout track “Regular Size” (from their new album) with an exclusive b-side (“Mirrors”) in europe!
Listen to the track here:
We’ll have 2 different colors (100 each) and Unlessyoutry Records will have 100 of a third color available.
OUR PREORDER IS COMING SOON!!!
We wanna start it with the preorder for another 7″ we still have to announce next week, so all of you won’t have to pay shipping two times.
That’s how much we love all of you …
Hell yeah, it’s been a while and since we are totally lazy this summer, we forgot to update the website with the latest news about us putting out the new EP “Ashford” by Clipwing from Winnipeg, Canada.
Recorded and engineered by Chris Hannah of Propagandhi (you may have heard about his little band), it will be released this fall in collaboration with LaserLife Records.
Until then you’ll be able to catch them on Tour in Europe with their friends in Migre Le Tigre.

To celebrate the lazy summertime and the fact that some people out there actually don’t own the 2 fantastic Pentimento records we put out, we created a little bundle for all of you, now it’s only 20€ for the self titled album and the “Inside The Sea” EP … just click on the image below and shop away!
Besides that we are preparing a couple of releases and when we say a couple, we are talking about more than two and we can promise you they’ll all be out before the end of the year … in totally, completely unrelated news: Great Lakes USA recorded a new EP at Getaway Group Studios with Jay Maas. The recordings werde mastered by Brad Boatright (singer from From Ashes Rise) Audio Siege the very same place that mastered the new Defeater, Modern Life is War, & Bane records.
