DIRECT FROM RIOT SEASON (ANDY RIOT)
July 2014 was my first encounter with BLOWN OUT label wise.
That’s when sister label, Swap Meat Records put out the bands debut physical release ‘Sun Rot’ as a limited run tape. That quickly sold out and two furthers runs were made and also sold out.

Since then, we’ve released a further four Blown Out releases on Riot Season. Drifting Way Out Between Suns (2014), New Cruiser (2016), Superior Venus (2017) and just last week In Search Of Highs Volume 1 (2018).
So what better thing to do next than go back to where it all began and release ‘Sun Rot’ on wax at long last. ‘Sun Rot’ was recorded to tape and was very lo-fi in nature. We’ve rescued the original tapes and have tweaked them for vinyl ever so slightly but it very much remains the lo-fi classic it once was.
It’s off at the pressing plant now, getting cut/mastered and once we’ve okayed the test pressings it’ll be pressed up in a limited one off run of 300 copies on space black vinyl. The artwork has been re imagined by the original cover artist, and long time Blown Out artwork collaboratorAnthony Downie – Illustrations and it looks sweet.
I’ll get these up for pre-order soon, offered to the label mailing list first as always of course. Stay tuned
