A big year for Young Mister! Feb 09, 2017

Over the past week, Young Mister has stayed busy! The band spent time with producer Taylor Bray in Nashville to start work on their new album. Young Mister's debut album just cracked 1 million streams on Spotify, and we learned that 2 songs cracked Billboard charts last summer. American Airlines just added "Anybody Out There" to their February indie playlist, played on hundreds of flights every day. To top it all off, Young Mister will be heading out to Austin in a month to play an official showcase at SXSW.

A huge congratulations to Steven and the rest of the Young Mister crew for everything they've achieved over this past year! Keep an eye out for new tunes coming soon.

It's Test Press Week! Nov 28, 2016

After a year of putting out vinyl records for all you wonderful people, our test press storage box is finally full. We've hit a wall... Do we start a second box? Do we even have another box?! Does this new box get stacked on top of or below the current one? Too many questions.

We came to the only logical conclusion... We're going to stop hoarding test pressings and put them up for sale! Starting today, we'll be listing test pressings from our first 8 records throughout the week.

Deep 6 Division: New LP from Rapper Shane & Mike Astrea Nov 17, 2016

Somewhere between the glow of neon lights and the backwoods of a southern town, you'll find the sounds of Deep Six Division. North Carolina’s Rapper Shane is joined by Florida producer Mike Astrea to bring you a 10 track, bass heavy, shit talking, self-titled debut album. This is Everglade shores meets familiar barstools for a menacing and heavyweight, down south rap experience. "More reasons to keep an eye on North Carolina’s rap scene", according to Hypebeast. This is Deep 6 Division.

Pre-order the new LP on purple vinyl with a Deep 6 Division patch, or white vinyl. We've also got t-shirts available and a t-shirt and vinyl bundle. Album drops on December 16th.

Ancient Cities "Supermoon Blackout" out today! Oct 07, 2016


The latest from Ancient Cities is out now! Hit the link to order your copy of Supermoon Blackout today and see why the album was picked as "Album of the Year" by critics and readers in this year's Creative Loafing "Best Of" magazine. These records look and sound gorgeous on limited edition translucent purple vinyl!

Supermoon Blackout available for pre-order Sep 12, 2016

Supermoon Blackout, the follow-up to Ancient Cities' 2014 self titled album, is now available for pre-order on limited edition purple vinyl!

The album is a labor of love, recorded in 3 different locations over several weeks and produced by the band themselves. The end result is a spaced out rock album with no holds barred. "A bolder psychedelic touch marked by reverb-heavy swagger and searing, sawtoothed guitar solos", according to Consequence of Sound.

Ancient Cities will be playing a vinyl release show with Young Mister at Lunchbox Records on October 8th.

Supermoon Blackout is also available on CD from ancientcitiesband.com, as well as online at iTunes, Spotify and anywhere else you listen to music!
