Forward Momentum

Tests for the Drug Problem LP should be arriving any day now, hoping for a mid-to-late January release date.  It will in fact be a pressing of 500 and I will have plenty to distribute amongst various distros and such.  If you are a distro and want to purchase a few wholesale copies contact me at

What the future brings...
Column of Heaven/Drainland split (still in the writing stages, this won't be out for some time)

Drug Problem LP

This was originally self released as a cd-r a few years back but never got a proper vinyl release before the band reached an indefinite hiatus.  Over time this band has seemed to develop somewhat of a cult following with those fortunate enough to have stumbled across their music, at least from what I've noticed.  Considering the fact that there is basically no information on them to be found anywhere aside from a blog or two, I was concerned that something this good might fade away into the obscurity and never get the attention it deserves.  So, after some cyber sleuthing i tracked down a member of the band and they were pretty enthusiastic about the idea of doing an LP.  No release date on this yet, as I am still saving funds, but things are already in motion.  Most likely a small pressing of 300 or possibly 500.  Ten songs of dark, sludgy, disgusting powerviolence from New Zealand chock full of disturbingly awesome samples and wretched sounding vocals.

Another Distro Update + Other Nonsense

So i finally bit the bullet and paid the fee to allow more items to be hosted in the bigcartel store.  With that being said, I will be adding things here and there regularly.  Keep checking back periodically until I get the next release ready.

Here is a download for the VI 7":
There are about 18 remaining copies of this record left before it goes out of print.

I also made a facebook page for those inclined to follow my every move:

Lastly, you should all download the Column of Heaven demo:
Been listening to this regularly for a few weeks now and i must say it's been my favorite release that's come out this year.  The tape is sold out but Brant from VI is possibly repressing it so if he does i'll be getting a few to distro in here in the U.S.

That is all for now.

Socially Retarded R.I.P. + final recorded output

Socially Retarded has finally disbanded after a 3 year span of overly violent shows, gratuitous substance abuse, and a constant revolving door of members.  Their last show could definitely be considered "one for the books" so if you missed it, missed out.  Anyway, for their last show they whipped up a few home made discography cassettes.  The tape compiles all of their tracks recorded with the final line up (everything with Mitch on vocals) including a few new songs recorded in the last few weeks of their existence.  Not sure how many of these tapes were made, or if there will ever be any more, but as far as i know it's the only tangible source for hearing these last songs.  With that being said, I went ahead and acquired the digital file of the final mix of the songs and have been given the green light to hand it out, so here i am doing so.  Farewell to one of my favorite Chicago bands...

Other news...

The new Sea of Shit EP has been posted up on our bandcamp page, it is slated to be co-released as a 7" on PRGNT Records and Idoneum Bello Records this summer.  I will definitely be distro-ing that (for obvious reasons) and there will be a short tour in support of said 7" this August.

Socially Retarded is calling quits.  They will be recording one last tape and playing two more shows before disbanding, both in Chicago.  One is on July 20th at the Dunk Tank (2323 N Albany) with Backslider and D.O.C, and the other on August 15th at Waterworks (615 S Clark) with Vile Intent, Sea of Shit, Overpower, and Men as Witches.

CONSTRICTIONS is dead.  We put out two tapes and played three shows in our year of existence.  The last track we ever recorded can be found here.  That will be coming out soon on a power electronics comp that i may or may not post about later.  Omar is now doing electronics in Machismo, they should have a tape out soon enough.

VILE INTENT Regression to the Mean 7" PRE ORDER

Download DAR001/DAR002

DAR001 and DAR002 are both sold out.  There will more than likely not be a repress of either release so I've put up downloads for both (click on either release below for a link).


DAR002 - CONSTRICTIONS - Zero Discrimination CS

CONSTRICTIONS tracks are directly from the source so they are of the highest quality. sos/sr tracks were taken from a blog that ripped the vinyl at a high bitrate. I haven't tested that rip out yet but i'm sure it works/sounds fine.

You can still obtain a copy of the sos/sr split from here, there should be one or two left.

Near Completion

So after several delays and constant headache/confusion from dealing with the pressing plant, the Vile Intent records have been pressed and shipped. We should be receiving them in the next few days. Art is being handled at the moment, it is in the final stages of being composed.  There is a chance that a few of these eps will be available with alternate covers at this VI show in Toronto...

UPDATE 3/11: records have arrived, they look/sound great, still waiting on art.  soon soon.  also, this pressing has magically turned into a pressing of 372 (as opposed to the initial 300 requested) due to a pressing plant error in our favor, meaning i will be able to sell them cheaper than originally planned.  this is good news for everyone.

Socially Retarded & Disgust 7" / Sea of Shit EP

We will be releasing a collaboration 7" between SOCIALLY RETARDED and fellow Chicago pe outfit DISGUST at some point in 2011. The writing process for said release is still under way so there is no release date as of yet, but I felt it should at least be brought to everyone's attention that this is in fact a future release planned for Diseased Audio. In the meantime, check out the new SOCIALLY RETARDED/DAISYCUTTER split 7" on PRGNT records. It is sure to be a devastating record on both accounts.

Also slated for 2011 is an 8 song SEA OF SHIT ep 7", which will most likely end up being a split release between Diseased Audio and Kills You Records. If any other label is interested in helping out with this feel free to get a hold of me (i'm also in this band).

VILE INTENT Regression to the Mean 7" is still under way. It will officially be available in February.
