"So Much Brooding" by Manor Gates is out now. Nov 10, 2023

Ohioans, rejoice! So Much Brooding, the debut album from Manor Gates is out now on all platforms. We are so stoked to have collabed with our friends at We're Trying Records for this one. It’s an honest, cutting, even... brooding emo record.

The band concurs: "Lyrically it is the most honest Griffen has ever been. Writing about his failures as a partner, the death of a colleague, and the realization that you can be your most successful self and the most miserable at the same time. The title, So Much Brooding, fit the vibe of the music and lyrics. Taken from a quote the Joker says to Batman in the video game, Arkham City. 'So much brooding, it's not good for you, you know!'"

Stream it now on any platform and pre-order a copy on "blood moon" vinyl from our web store.

“‘Yee-Haw’ immediately demonstrates what makes them so lovable: pop hooks combine with aggressive and technical riffs“ - The Alternative

Record Store Day reissues & our broken host Apr 24, 2023

Hello everyone. There's nothing quite like waking up on a day when you planned to release 3 new records, only to find that your website is completely undergoing "Scheduled Maintenance" without so much as an email explanation to you. Unfortunately that was our experience on Saturday morning. We were certain that the issue would be resolved by today, and postponed our sale.

You can understand our excitement when the site appeared to be back online and fully functional yesterday. However, when we logged in this morning, we were greeted with this lovely message:

We have tested the platform and confirmed that we are still unable to add new products or new variants of existing products to the platform. As such, our Record Store Day vinyl reissues must be postponed again, without any insight into when this issue will be resolved with our host, LimitedRun.

We are very sorry for the confusion and further delay. We are looking at alternate short-term solutions to allow us to continue releasing new music, as a record label normally does, as we also prepare a longer term solution of leaving LimitedRun in favor of a stable and better maintained platform.

Please bear with us as we deal with this unexpected impact.
