Since the Xerxes 7″ was delayed, pre-orders are just now available. So jump over to the Mayfly Records store and reserve your copy of Twins while you can. For $7 you can get both colors, or for $4 you can just grab the gray (400 recycled gray/100 purple). No idea what the shit ‘recycled gray’ is. Swirlie? http://www.mayflyrecords.bigcartel.com/
The new offical release show for the record will be on May 8th at Skull Alley. The lineup is Xerxes, Touche’ Amore’, The New Mexico, Voices of Arida, and Open Fields. 7pm, 3.75 Euros.

From the label’s description: “Louisville’s Xerxes play a mix of traditional hardcore and 90’s screamo that blends the best of bands like American Nightmare or Have Heart with the best of You and I or Orchid. With a raw sound and intelligent lyrics these high school seniors are prepared to make their mark! For fans of Touche Amore, Pianos Become the Teeth, and La Dispute.” Oh, BTW, Xerxes still has CD versions of the 7″ that they released back in March in case you don’t have a record player. And according to Will, they will have purple available at their shows as well as the online store thing.
