We’re now taking Ressentiment vinyl orders. The long awaited double-lp version of our last record is finally being released on March 11th, thanks to the fantastic I.Corrupt.Records from Wiesbaden, Germany.

European folks can pick up the record directly from I.Corrupt, but our American and Canadian buddies can get it either from us at our webstore, or through Translation Loss.

Orders should begin shipping in mid-march.

There are a lot of albums from our back catalog of our current and former bands, and only a couple have been available for sale digitally. We’ve finally rectified that problem. As of now every single one of our releases is available for purchase from the major online retailers like iTunes and Amazon.

They’re also processing for approval at Emusic, Zune marketplace, and Spotify. Some are already through the process but if you’re looking for one of our albums through these smaller sites and you don’t see them there yet, try back in a few days.

The Postman Syndrome – “God Relieve Our Grief” & “Terraforming”
iTunes, Amazon, Zune

Day Without Dawn – “Understanding Consequences” & self-titled demo
iTunes, Amazon, Zune

East Of The Wall – self-titled demo
iTunes, Amazon, Emusic, Zune

We’re about to go into the studio soon so if you want to help fund the band and get some music in the process, here’s your chance. Make it count, kiddo.

East of the Wall is excited to announce its new lineup. Joining the band are guitarist Chris Alfano and drummer Seth Rheam. Both played in the band Biclops with East of the Wall bassist Brett Bamberger and guitarist Kevin Conway. Due to the merging of the two bands’ lineups, all music created by the aforementioned collective, along with guitarist Matt Lupo, will be released under the name East of The Wall. This will include the release of the groups next record, Ressentiment, due out next summer through Translation Loss.

With this lineup change, East of the Wall has parted ways with original drummer Mike Somers.

We are extremely excited to share some news with all of our fans, friends and; family….. East of the Wall has signed to Translation Loss! We are so fortunate to be on a roster full of artists who we respect and appreciate so much, not to mention having this excellent opportunity to do business with such a hard working operation of great people. On the road ahead we will be focusing extensively on writing, recording, touring, touring, touring.

Translation Loss will be releasing an split with Rosetta, Year of No Light & East of the Wall this December which will contain three new tracks from our camp. We have about half of our next full length written, which thus far in content is a bit more technically involved than our last LP. Keep up with us for news on releases and tour at www.eastofthewall.com & myspace.com/eastofthewall.

We want to extend our thanks to all the people who have helped us along the way, most especially Brandon Helms, Dave Grossman, and Dave Witte. Looking so forward to our time ahead with TL.

Cheers,
