Tales From The Pit: Moshing with Bats, Barbed Wire

We've been talking to bands to get their best pit stories. This installment is from Justin and Angela from Facedown band The Great Commission.

"Rather than go to our prom in high school, Justin and I decided to go to a show instead. Versus the couple hundred dollars we would have wasted, we paid $8 to see Figure Four, Shattered Realm, and Bad Luck 13 at The Showcase Theatre in Corona, CA. It ended up being the craziest show we had ever been to. When BL13 played, they threw weapons into the pit including bats with barbed wire, thumb tacs, fireworks, forks, and random metal objects that were thrown at people. Needless to say it was pretty violent as you could imagine and my shirt caught fire from one of the fire crackers! By far the craziest pit I have ever seen."

Next week hear from Trigger The Bloodshed's Rob Pernell.

Strike First Records Returns, Announces New Bands

Strike First Records has returned after a more than one year hiatus. Here's a message from the label:

"It is a pleasure to announce the newly re-formed Strike First Records. Although the look and roster is new, the goal is the same as it was before: to develop the next generation of heavy bands! In 2006, we decided to take a break on Strike First Records and re-focus our time and energy exclusively into the bands on Facedown Records roster. Well, after 2 years of down time, we've had plenty of time to think about re-launching Strike First and making it better than ever. That time is now and we are excited to announce the first 3 bands signed to the newly formed label.

"HOPE FOR THE DYING is as metal as it gets and hail from Jonesboro, IL. Their self-titled full length album will be the first album we are releasing and will be available on November 25. THE GREAT COMMISSION are turning Southern California upside down with their live show and in your face music and ministry. They will be recording their debut full length at the end of 2008 for an early 2009 release. THROUGH SOLACE are part of the Wales, UK hardcore scene and have released an EP on Holdfast Records. They will be releasing their debut full length with us in early 2009. They have some US dates planned in support of their EP, so make sure to check those out in our tours section. More info can be found on all of these artists by clicking on the Artists section so check that out.

"With a new and refined focus on developing artists in this day and age, this new wave of Strike First releases will be available worldwide through iTunes and other digital distributors like Amazon MP3, Shockhound and more. However, we are not simply focusing on being a "digital only" label as all releases will also be available as limited edition, environmentally friendly physical packaging that is free of plastic jewel cases. These physical copies of all the releases will be available online on the Facedown / Strike First store, as well as other select .com sites (interpunk, smartpunk, revhq.com, bestbuy.com, fye.com, etc…) and of course at all of the bands shows.

"Thank you to everyone that has made this possible and for your support over the years!"
