• There will also be 400 more on T/B/A colored vinyl! We do not know what colors will arrive. The wonderful mysteries of life!

"I was raging through the last layout pieces of the "Partycrasher" album, getting inserts nice and tidy and the like. Busy times; lots of early mornings working while the world was all quiet (except for Europeans who were on the same schedule, haha). Anyhow I was in a fixed position and on this day I received not one, but two demos. I superstitiously worried that they would be awful and that I might be quizzed about this later. Regardless, I played one of them. Then I played it again, twisting the earphones a little tighter, turning it up another click. Hmmm… that one song reminds me of something… not overtly, but there's a vibe in there… is it… 1982 Psychedelic Furs?!? Ha! The next one up… now this one HAS to be awful, just to balance the Earth's axis. Nope, 30 seconds in I pause it. Jennifer needs to hear this one! And she said, "This sounds like something I'd listen to." DEAR LANDLORD, MEAN JEANS, BRUTAL KNIGHTS, and unhinged pop-punk in general? Yes please! Right then and there I decided that the fates had indeed aligned. I asked both bands on the spot if they would do a split. Both agreed without even hearing the other band… or even knowing the other band's name! A blind date between SUNSHINE STATE (Gainesville) and DEAD BARS (Seattle) was born! (Members of these bands have been guilty of involvement with Whiskey & Co., Big Eyes, and Against Me!) " —Var.
