RIYL: Left Lane Cruiser, Seasick Steve, The Black Keys

Label: Romanus Records


Show Pony came out of the gates in a strong way last year, and Brother O’ Brother rode it around the circuit most of 2015. As a final hurrah, and a celebration of the new Romanus Records label they are launching in the very near future, “Blood & Cigarettes” is being released in a limited edition on crazy wax. Crazy as in zoetrope labels with glitter and glow-in-the-dark wax.  35 lathe cut one-sided singles are available, as well as some black vinyl test pressings of Show Pony. Test pressings come in special sleeves and include a post piece of film for you collectors out there. Kudos to Banta & Swopes for putting forth some great music on a very cool platform.

35 lathe cut singles  of “Blood & Cigarettes”  $20

Limited number of Show Pony pressings       $50

The Details

"We are incredibly proud of Show Pony. Musically, it is what we always kind of wanted the band to be in the beginning. For this album it was about finding that blend of blues, soul, and psychedelic that really made it what we wanted it to be. It was also important for us that there was a clear, positive and topical message in the music. Throughout the writing process, the lyrics and content of the album really developed from our own personal experiences in those moments and the world we observed around us as well as our faith. We really were overtly focused on trying to create and album that is hopefully on par with other regional and national acts. So many songs got thrown away to accomplish this goal and we believe the quality is on full display. Huge thanks to Threshold Studios, Shine Indy, and Fonoflo Records for all helping this come to fruition." ~ Chris Banta & Warner Swopes
