Holy shit, I’m bad at updating the actual site outside of adding things to the distro. I’ll try to be better, but it’s easier to post on social media. Anyway, we’ve got a new release coming out in March that I’m super honored to be a part of releasing. Lance Hahn meant so much to so many people. including myself. He was an incredibly prolific songwriter and a walking punk encyclopedia. It’s amazing that 13 years after his death, that he still has new releases coming out.
An Uneasy Peace 7″
An Uneasy Peace was a project bringing together Lance Hahb (J Church/Cringer), Stan Wright (Arctic Flowers, Signal Lost, Deathreat, Balance of Terror), Mike Warm (The Observers, Defect Defect), and Dave Wuttke (Drunken Boat) for a one-off 7″ of ripping hardcore. The record was supposed to be released years ago but got shelved after Lance’s death in 2007 due to complications from kidney dialysis.
Stan Wright had this to say:
“Unfuckable Chainsaw. “What do you think?” asked Lance. This was his idea for the band’s name. I offered ‘An Uneasy Peace’ as an option.
Lance approached me one day about doing a hardcore band. I said yes right away. Not only was he an awesome and prolific songwriter, but i was really curious about the hardcore songs he had written. Lance was always very supportive of the music i was doing and would tell me so much about bands i had never heard of. He was a walking music encyclopedia.
We especially bonded over Anarcho punk. He could talk for hours about anything music. When he passed away he was working on an extensive collection of interviews with anarcho punk bands to be collected as
a book titled ‘Let the Tribe Increase’. I hope it finally comes out one day!
The recording process for our project was really fun. The lineup was Lance Hahn on guitar, Dave Wuttke on bass, Mike Warm on drums, Stan Wright on guitar and engineering. Im pretty sure Matt Badenhop played a guitar solo on a song too!
We set up everything in the studio. Lance would play us a song and we added whatever we wanted. After doing this a few times,we would record it. We tracked and mixed everything in one day.
Were so excited this is finally coming out for everyone to hear!
This record is dedicated to Lance Hahn 1967-2007 RIP
Maybe Unfuckable Chainsaw wasn’t so bad…”
