We are extremely proud to announce the addition of Ice Hockey to the Texas Is Funny roster! Don’t let them fool you, they are a lot more than a regular ol screamo band from the midwest. They are so much more than that and they caught our attention very quickly. We will be releasing a cassette ep entitled Wavefunction Collapse in mid February that you can pre-order right now. Ice Hockey will be following up the ep with their first full length album later this summer.
This has been a long time coming. We are happy to announce the addition of Akron Ohio’s Cherry Cola Champions to the Texas Is Funny Records family. CCC will be recording a new album soon and will be coming out sometime early next year. Until then we are happy to have been able to make their debut self titled release available on all digital stores and streaming services! iTunes, Spotify, Amazon… you get the picture! Go take a listen and give them a warm welcome.
“best shoegaze record of the year”
New Noise Magazine
“offers enormous walls of whirring shoegaze distortion”
“huge, caramel waves of guitar crash into beautiful, distant vocals”
Punk Emo’s finest Vetter Kids have delivered, after much anticipation, another gem in “Logan“! The old is new again. “Logan” is not only making noise in the streets but also in the industry garnering much accolades!
New Noise Magazine
“Logan represents Vetter Kids and all that punk means to them”
“amalgam of the best of ‘90s icons”
“gentle trickle to a full-blown storm and back again”
Ex-cited to announce the release of Ex-Breathers EP “ExBx“. Hardcore punk band from Florida Ex-Breathers destroy all in under 12 minutes! Listen here! They also premiered their video for “Auto-Correct” over at Brooklyn Vegan!
“It’s a total blast”
New Noise Magazine
“brash, chaotic, and explosive”
Exploding In Sound
“vein bursting intensity”
We are super stoked to announce Vetter Kids second EP of 2014 Logan. Logan shows a new dynamic side to Vetter Kids that their first EP III did not. Once again using the dynamic soft/loud format the band stresses their ability to craft great pop songs. Brooklyn Vegan is now premiering their first single off Logan, “Chlorine Dream”. Go take a listen!
Wondering Sound and New Noise Magazine have some wonderful articles on the new track from Glish, “Stu Hunkington”. Follow the links to check it out and get yourself ready for their full length album out in November.
Stereogum is premiering the new Ex-Breathers song “Pocket” from their upcoming EP EXBX. The song is “44 seconds of charging guitars, David Yow-influenced yelps, and still plenty of unpredictable twists and turns.”
Glish will be on tour this August across the mid-west. New full length album will be out this November.
