Bear State and MOONE RECORDS have teamed up for their very first Supported Release Project and are releasing an incredibly limited square-shaped 7″ lathe cut record that was 11 months in the making!

This release was produced to support Arizona Foster Care Initiatives, “an Arizona-based organization that provides for vulnerable children and youth through holistic support, authentic relationships, and advocacy so distressed families can flourish” and will be Bear State‘s first vinyl release.

Caleb Dailey of Bear State: explains the concept behind this release:

We were trying to hold tight to the idea of local artists, business, and the community of people gathering together to take care of broken systems within our community.
And foster care is a huge issue in our city, and I have been wanting to be apart of fostering for a while.

[O]ur hope was to create a way for our community members (who are able) to help us give above and beyond.  We are not expecting many of you to pay the price of the pre-order, however, we are excited to sell the products at a more affordable cost at the event.  This is a VERY limited release.  We purposefully ordered only 60 records cut and 25 cassettes made with the hope of selling out quickly.  We would like the proceeds to be handed over to FosterCare Initiatives as soon as possible.  With over 15,000 children in the AZ foster care system and hundreds of teens growing into adulthood without a family, our desire is that this cause would transcend our tiny efforts.”

You can choose to get the lathe cut for $15 and choose to donate up to $100 more in support of Arizona Foster Care Initiatives.

If you happen to be in Phoenix on February 28 this year, stop by Stinkweeds Records for a FREE SHOW (feat. Bear State, Cherie Cherie, and others) and a chance to pick up a copy in person of the “Cool Things” b/w “Dark Comedy” 7″.

The Details

We are so stoked to finally announce a supported release project that has been in the works for the past ten months. Our vision for this venture is simple: “local supporting local.” We have partnered with Stinkweeds Records in Phoenix, AZ to release a 7″ record featuring two new Bear State songs. These very limited-edition square, clear records were locally hand-assembled and cut.
Although we are so very excited about the release of our very first vinyl, the most important part is our privilege to support FosterCare Initiatives, “an Arizona-based organization that provides for vulnerable children and youth through holistic support, authentic relationships, and advocacy so distressed families can flourish.” ALL proceeds will be donated to this incredible local charity in support of our Arizona youth and their families. On February 28th, Stinkweeds will host a special fundraising/release show where Bear State (among others) will play, and you will be able to purchase one of the “Cool Things” b/w “Dark Comedy” 7 inches, cassingles, and download cards. New Bear State t-shirts will also be available (all proceeds will also go to FCA). We are honored to be given the opportunity to partner with a local business so eminently suitable for such an important project that will let us give back to the community we love.
You can wait till Feb. 28th to get the 7 inch/cassette, but we hope some will donate above and beyond the “known value” and reserve a pre-order bundle BELOW!

Price $15
