Hey monkey-scratchers!!! SO, we know this is a long, empty month... Your life seems dismal... grey. It is joyless with no hope of improving until The HUMANS Issue #8 hits racks on Oct. 7th... We understand your pain.
So, since you have to wait for a couple weeks still to get yer HUMANS fix, we thought this would be a good time to let you in on some of the latest HUMANS news!!
So far we've had 2 HUMANS Soundtrack Volumes released on vinyl. The first which we self released on Chrome Banana Records featuring Smelly Tongues and Zig-Zags and the 2nd which Magic Bullet Records released featured 2 BOSS KONG tracks and was released for Record Store Day. Both records fuckin' rule and sold out quickly... Now we’re psyched to announced that the 3rd of The HUMANS Soundtrack 7 inch record!! And it will feature punk killers, CUNTZ and BITS OF SHIT!!
Its going to be pure Ozploitation madness!!! We’ve got two killer bands from Australia teaming up to bring you the meanest, roughest, most fuckin’ bad ass HUMANS record they could!!!
Here's a lil' sample of both bands.
We couldn’t be more excited for this 7 inch!!! We've teamed up with legendary, In The Red Records to put it out!!!! Larry's released some amazing records over the years and we're fuckin' psyched to do this with him!
We still don’t have a date for the release (fuckin' record plants are fucked up ‘mate… taking forever) but we hope to see it out before years end.
