Sudden Death Records is delighted to release the new Jenny album Love & Politics. Jenny, hailing from Calgary, Canada, is an explosive four piece group, that adroitly combines tales of love, politics and if I dare say, the Canadian soul. They blend heartfelt folk and riveting punk that gets you four chords and comes perilously close to the truth...

A new review has been posted online for D.O.A.'s newest cd "We Come In Peace"
"Classic. Essential. Legendary. All good - and accurate - ways to describe D.O.A. Dig this new album on their own Sudden Death Records, reviewed by The Impaler below for Mass Movement 34, a work in progress. Come on… give punk a chance.
We Come In Peace' is as much a declaration of D.O.A.'s mission on this, the band's 14th studio album of all-new material, as it is a way to identify this collection of songs by serving as the album's title. Always a fiercely political band, D.O.A. have upped the ante here by jumping headfirst into the fray of the messy and chaotic shit-storm that is today's less-than-stable worldwide political environment, tackling the financial crisis, the Occupy movement, shady dealings by top officials, systemic bigotry, and other important issues – both those that have been ripped from the headlines and those that have been culled from buried stories and the underground press."

"D.O.A- We Come In Peace
When it comes to hardcore, few bands have stood the test of time as well as D.O.A have. They've managed to remain politically relevant in an age where other bands have lost their edge and their venom. It would not be a D.O.A album if it were not a narrative on the current affairs in the world. "He's Got A Gun" throws a catchy, old-school vibe to back up lyrics that concern school shootings"

Withdrawal : A Bank Heist
A short Film by Clayton Keithley
A short film about two brothers who take part in a daring bank robbery,
this is a thrilling 17 minute film written and produced by my 15 year old son Clayton.
Greg Prato recently reviewed D.O.A's new 7" "We Occupy" for Rolling Stone.
The article can be found here.
One night in a heavily treed area in the wilds of the Pacific North West came a a gathering of sound and fury! That was the night that Canada's legendary D.O.A. pulled out all the stops with their comrades POTBELLY: Oak Harbor, Washington's fast rising punk band. Hundreds of rabid fans crammed into a converted storage locker they call Vagabond. The kids were wild as this strange setting and it seemed protected by a force field, so their pagan rituals went went undetected by the Oak Harbor police in this conservative air force town. POTBELLY wailed away and the session was recorded on a 16 track recording desk. Then D.O.A. appeared out of the fog and chopped everyone in their path with classic songs like: I HATE YOU, TO HELL N" BACK, FUCK YOU and FUCKED UP RONNIE.
It was an evening not to be forgotten and this limited edition 12" slab of vinyl makes sure it won't be. This session will not be released on CD and there are only 1000 available and it will not be repressed. If you love rock, get it now!
