Dog Knights Productions just announced via their Facebook that the new Blue Friend / KMKMS split 7″ will be up for pre-order today (Monday)Â via their own webstore in UK and also via Stiff Slack Records in Japan.
For whatever reason I still can’t completely figure out, Japan seems to be making more and more headway over the last several years in the screamo/emo violence genre and both these bands pair quite nicely on this split. It is good to see Blue Friend following up their relatively successful debut LP that came out last year as well.Â The preview track “Light” definitely keeps in step with their earlier work. This split is my first introduction to KMKMS and theirÂ contributions definitely peaked my interest to order the split. Hopefully this small introduction won’t be the last we hear from them!
This pre-order comes in three different variants with different quantities for each. Exclusive to Dog Knights Productions are 100 Seafoam Green w/Black Smoke vinyl records, 300 Red w/Black Marble viaÂ Stiff Slack Records (50 of these will be available via Dog Knights), and an Ultra Clear w/Seafoam Green & Blue Splatter variant as well with 100 from Dog Knights and 100 from the bands themselves.
This is a pre-order that is due to ship out starting mid-June.
The record is limited to 600 total copies and includes a digital download code and full color printed inner-sleeve.
All orders placed through the Dog Knights store come with free flyers and stickers as well.
