Impossible Standards will be releasing a split 7" with Japanese Women. Around the same time we will be releasing a demo tape for Dominant Species. Details in the coming weeks.
Maximum Rock n Roll review of the Black Hole Kids Dull Conjecture 7":
"I wish the local bands would have been half as good as Black Hole Kids when I was in Birmingham in the early 90s. BHK play fast as shit hardcore mixed with some post punkish harmonic chord breakdowns that do not sound trite or tired as that statement may lead you to believe. The vocals are blown out and pissed and they sorta remind me oddly of early FYP minus the bratty quality. It's good to know that people are keeping it real and holding shit down in AL. Thumbs up! Was that cover picture taken in the Alabama Theater? Sure looks like it. - Greg Harvester"
That record is available here.

The I Don't Want to Be Ashamed Anymore cassette compilation is being duplicated currently and will be released on June 18th. The cassette compiles bands featuring Tripp Norris, a regular of the Birmingham hardcore punk and noise scene since the early 2000s, who we lost in late February. His presence is sorely missed by those of us that were close to him. The cassette will be a limited pressing of 100 copies on red tapes, housed in hand folded cardstock covers, and is being released in conjunction with the zine Sing Me Back Home, which is a large sampling of Tripp's writing. Money from the project is being used to raise funds for Scrollworks, a local non profit that provides free music education to underprivigeled children in Birmingham.
Purchase the cassette here.
The Impossible Standards demo tape will be done soon. Since we are unable to play shows, it will probably be a very small pressing. E-mail email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the mailing list to be made aware of this and other releases.
