Dead City Records Releasing Out Of Print Albums

Earlier this week New York-based DIY hardcore punk record label, Dead City Records, digitally released eight rare, out-of-print European hardcore albums from Right Direction, One Night Stand, and more for the first time ever. Today two additional releases from Right Direction and M-Town Rebels see their digital debut and have hit the iTunes store: Right Direction’s "To Right The Wrong" the M-Town Rebels compilation "Always The First To Have A Beer."

All 10 now-digitally-available hardcore releases come courtesy of the various musical endeavors of European hardcore front man, Dave Reumers, over the course of more than a decade. Commented, Reumers, “This music was released between 1989 and 2002. I’ve wasted half my life screaming nonsense into a mic thinking I was Mick Jagger, but I wouldn't have done it any other way. I’m glad I was part of this and I was lucky to be in so many bands that helped spread the hardcore, punk, and metal sound throughout Europe in the early days. If you still dig our music in this day and age there’s no hope for you anymore. Enjoy!”

Added Dead City Records owner, John Franko, “Right Direction CDs and LPs have been out-of-print and impossible to find for years, and it is an honor for me to make these releases available digitally for the first time ever. As one of the forefathers of the European Hardcore Movement, Right Direction and all bands related to the M-Town Holland scene have always provided us with top notch music. While taking influences from early American punk, hardcore, and metal bands, I always found Right Direction ahead of their time when it came to talented musicianship and amazing vocals and lyrics. Truly a diverse band and am amazing group of guys I am proud to call my friends.”

The full digitally released back catalogue is:

RIGHT DIRECTION - How Many More Lies
RIGHT DIRECTION - Echoes From The Past
RIGHT DIRECTION – To Right The Wrong
RIGHT DIRECTION - Beyond The Beyonds
VARIOUS COMPILATION - M-Town Rebels - Always The First To Have A Beer
VARIOUS COMPILATION - M-Town Rebels II - Among The Angels
ONE NIGHT STAND - One Life For The Family
ULTIMATUM - Whispers Of A Wanted Man
