I finally think I'm ready to start getting these out there. I've been sitting on the vinyl since early November. This was supposed to be out in late October when they played a show with Subhumans but the vinyl arrived 4 days too late. Once I missed the deadline the urgency kinda faded so I sat on it for a while just leaving the boxes of vinyl sitting around while I waited for all the covers to be screened.
¡Libérate! play fastcore and are highly influenced by bands such as Crudos, Life's Halt, E-150, HHH, Discarga, etc. It's all sung in spanish and its all short and to the point. Based out of LA, the band was highly active from 2006 til about 2010 or so. After that, only getting together to sporadically play shows when time permits. The band features members highly active in the LA hardcore scene that have played in bands such as Asshole Assassination Squad, Bastardass, Syntax, ACxDC, Medic! and Fieldtrip.
The LP contains 49 tracks, including their entire first show, so its technically like 55 tracks. This collects the "Amor Y Passion" 7", their split 7" with Intifada from Chicago, 10 unreleased studio tracks (some meant for a Venganza split that never happened), 2 demos and their first live set. You can download the discography on this blog (look for it, I'm not making it that easy!) for free if you want to check it out. If you like it, please help me get rid of the stacks of vinyl by buying one.
I only did a small run of 300 records, which will honestly be it, at least from me, because there are other releases I'd like to get out there. Hand screened covers and hand stamped labels (not fun!).
I am open to trades as long as they're fair and the music is somewhat similar to this. Please get in touch to work out a trade. I am open to tapes as long as you put some thought into them, all I ask is they have decent inserts (no bare tapes with bare packaging!) and decent dubbing. I'm getting sick of people half-assing tapes and still charging $5!
Other than that the lp is $12 ppd. Wholesale is welcome. Distro's get in touch or if you know your friends are going to want a copy as well, get together and order them all at once for a hook up.
Get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
Up next right after this is the Krossed 7"
P.S. Label name is No Te Calles, if any of you were curious.

I am absolutely in love with this demo! 8 tracks from this 4 piece out of Leganés. It's mid-paced and catchy as fuck! The vocals kind of remind me of Tony (Generacion Suicida) back in the early Vagrants days. Bouncy drums, solid bass lines and crappy (in a good way!) guitar! Thanks for reaching out and sending me a link to your music! I'm currently on my third play through. Come down to LA and bring Rata Negra back with you!
