Today, we’re honored to be bringing the CARCINOGEN RACE HORSE full length album HOLOCENE to you all. CARCINOGEN RACE HORSE was a heavy, straightforward rock band, whose roster included Breck Adkins (TOXODERA, NIHILIS), Brice Herman, Joshua Lago, and Robby Young, who recently passed away earlier this year. I was able to see them perform a couple of times, and I was beginning to form a friendship with Robby, who was warm, funny and outgoing. TAHRC is built on the idea of diversity and visibility, and CARCINOGEN RACE HORSE was an exciting band for me, because I hadn’t release a straight-up heavy rock album in all of the 160+ cassettes that have been released in the last 4 years. I always feel fortunate when musicians I don’t know well trust me to help them release music, and I was looking forward to growing that relationship with this band, and with Robby, who was eager to make new music with his friends.
TAHRC will be donating all of the proceeds from HOLOCENE to Robby’s family, and we would encourage you all, especially those of you who are a part of the Wichita music community, to purchase a copy and help us offer some support to them. It really is a special thing for us to be able to offer this album to you all today, and we’d like to thank his bandmates and his family for allowing us to share his music with you all.
