We are thrilled to finally announce that one of our favorite bands, Restorations, has joined the SideOneDummy family. After their last self-titled record won the entire staff over, we could not stop talking about how great it would be to work with these guys. A couple months later and we’re announcing they are officially on the SideOneDummy roster and that we will be putting out their new record in early 2013.

Los Angeles, CA - August 8th, 2012 - Philadelphia based atmospheric rockers Restorations have signed a record deal with Los Angeles based indie label SideOneDummy Records.
Singer/Guitarist Jon Loudon explained the bands decision to sign to SideOneDummy as, “All any band wants is to work with people that understand them. SideOneDummy has been on the same page with us every step of the way. Its a total thrill to be on the same label with so many classic, great bands too. Feeling really lucky that we get to make a record at this level with such a great team of people helping us out.”
The band will start tracking their sophomore LP at Miner Street Studios in Philadelphia on August 15th with producer Jon Low (Kurt Vile, Dr. Dog, mewithoutYou).
Fans of the band can expect something very unique to come out of the band. Loudon said, “I think the production is going to be really interesting. Jon Low and Miner Street have got a really unique personality. Super excited to run our songs through that place.”
SideOneDummy Records plans to release the bands second LP sometime in early 2013.
If you aren’t too familiar with the band, check out the video for “When You’re Older” from their last full length.
"In the last five years that I’ve had the opportunity of being on The Revival Tour, it’s been nothing but an invigorating breath of fresh air amongst the sea of live music out there today,” explains Americana singer/songwriter Chuck Ragan about the musical and cultural collaborative phenomenon that he helped create. “The revolving showcase of real music by real people in a simple grassroots fashion seems it originated in the old days from families and communities sharing music together, this is the simple ethic in live music events that we aim to revive.” The UK and European edition this Fall kicks off with a multi-national collection of amazing storytellers in Ragan, American singer/songwriter Cory Branan (who played on this past Spring’s US edition), Western Australia’s Emily Barker, Canada’s Jay Malinowski from reggae band Bedouin Soundclash and Texan Rocky Votolato.

Eugene Hutz once serenaded SideOneDummy staff on an acoustic guitar as he shared some homemade liquor with us. True story.
Just wanted to fill everyone in on the Anti-Flag ‘The General Strike’ Pre-Order!
First of all, we hope you’re all digging the new record and want to thank the band for delivering another awesome record for us to release. Looks like a lot of great records were released yesterday and we are happy to have one of our own in the loop.
All orders for The General Strike have been shipped. Every last one of them. Whether it was CD only, CD+Shirt, LP+Shirt, White Splatter LP, ‘I Want It All Bundle’ or any other option you chose. So if your order has not arrived yet, more than likely it is on the way. We know yesterday was release day, but we note on our online store that all orders will arrive ON or AROUND release date because we can’t really predict the transit time once it leaves our warehouse. Promising that every order will arrive by street date is just not going to happen when we’re shipping out a ton of records. So just give it a few days. Patience, grasshoppers!
However, we did experience a delay with the White Splatter LPs. So if you ordered one of those, your order is on the way and should be arriving soon. We apologize for this delay but the manufacturing of this sweet looking piece got delayed a bit but we banged them all out the door when they arrived yesterday. You can listen to the album on AOL all this week (link below) or you can email us at email@example.com and hit us up with your order number and we’ll provide you with a download link in the meantime if you’d like. We don’t want you guys not being able to jam to these tunes because your rad looking vinyl was delayed a bit.
Check out how awesome the White w/ Red Splatter looks!
As always, if you have absolutely any questions concerning an order, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll take care of you immediately. Please allow for a 48 hours reply time.
Thanks to everyone who purchased ‘The General Strike’
Listen to it all week on AOL Spinner
