    This description of the product is from our manufacturer's website:

    "Lathe cut records are made by 'impressing' the sound onto a plastic disc.
    They are cut in real time, by a real person.
    Because of the individual, custom nature of this process, the cost is higher per piece than pressing records. The records I make are mono, and 'embossed' onto plastic in real time. They are not the same as pressed vinyl records. There is an amount of surface noise on these records, similar to that of an old, dirty record."

    Is it possible to present stripped down hardcore punk in an intelligent and refreshing way? Seizure Man is says, "Yeah, we already found it."

    Hradio Signal is a welcome addition to Pittsburgh's extensive math rock and hardcore punk rosters. I think we all can agree that it's been too long for Black Flag, Refused, and Converge not to have created a weird, angsty baby yet. Hradio Signal solves this problem.

    The collective talent in this group is intense, and this album (written, performed, recorded, and produced entirely by the band) is a shining example of what the genres channeled within these songs are capable of. Deceitfully simple, the musical and lyrical content of these songs is honed in with pinpoint precision, while coming off as raw and aggressive. Listening to the two songs on this single is like watching a school of sharks hone in on its prey: belligerent, brutal, and brief.

    This release will be made to order, along with additional copies purchased for band and label. There will be no more than 50 of these created.

about

Ben: I wrote this track in response to gun related fear mongering and sensationalism. It disappoints me when people aren't creative enough to solve problems without violence. I understand the reaction, I feel it myself sometimes, but there are usually much better solutions to the problems we try to solve with guns here in the United States. There is more, but I'll talk about that later.

lyrics

Every day the danger rises, quick decisions
keep them away, please keep them away
from my rights, I hold them dear

News explosions, talking faces, flashing colors
They tell me it’s bad, It must be real bad
I think I’ll start a small militia

Protect myself and the ones around, at the cost of others
Don’t be a coward

What if I wake up and night and someone’s watching
Will I be safe? I better be safe
I think I know what I’ll have to do now

Oh,
I’ll buy a gun, I’ll buy a gun
And I’ll protect those children on the news
‘Cuz it’s the only reasonable thing to do
and I, I’ll buy a gun, I’ll buy a gun
This is how we obtain peace
We’ll teach these children to use lethal force

Ill get loaded and reload, and you won’t see
The danger coming, It’s coming from me
Are you against us?

Regulation, I spit on it, mental illness
make me a list, and I’ll round them up
Put those crazy people in prison

You come near me, and I feel threatened, and I can’t tell
Well, I’ll Stand my ground! I’ll stand my ground!
That’s what I call patriotism

What if I wake up and night and someone’s watching
Will I be safe? I better be safe!
I think I know what I’ll have to do now

Oh,
I’ll buy a gun, I’ll buy a gun, I’ll buy a gun
And I’ll protect those children on the news
‘Cuz it’s the only reasonable thing to do
Now I know for sure that I will
I’ll buy a gun, I’ll buy a gun
This is how we obtain peace
We kill everyone that we care about
We’ll kill our families
We’ll kill our friends
We’ll kill our the children
We’ll kill our future
We’ll just go kill ourselves too.
