Battle Royale


  • Bandcamp

Battle Royale were an excellent screamo band from Kansas City, Missouri.  They were everything you could ask for in a loud band - interesting songwriting, tight performances and earnest vocals that made them a flagship band in the KCDIY scene.  As all bands eventually do, Battle Royale hung up its spurs in 2013, but their influence on the scene at the time is undeniable.  Their members were active in the Midwest DIY community, putting on a lot of shows in the KC area for bands that ended up forming relationships with TAHRC (former members Dakota Shipp and Damian Fisher both had releases on TAHRC for their other bands, Bluehealer and Ragdoll, respectively), and these recordings were the seed of those relationships.  Their discography is their only release on TAHRC, and it's posthumous, but it is a collection of a truly active band who were equally gifted at the music they poured their passion into.  For fans of Ten Grand, 400 Years, Orchid, etc.

Excellent new jams from Troy James Weaver!  In addition to being a talented writer and novelist, my guy can pull a great sounding solo record out of thin air, too.  Totally touching and perfect lo-fi jams that recall Sebadoh's Freed Weed, Jesus and Mary Chain, and more.

New music from NOT COPS, off their quarantine performance at WAVE in Wichita, KS.  NC has a sizable crop of new music that is shaping up to be their 2nd LP, and you can hear many of the new jams recorded for the first time on this cassette.  Loud band makes loud music!

Two of TAHRC's long-running champions have collaborated on a 10 minute

EP of gigantic proportions.  RAW ANTHONY is the joining up of RAW SPACE as hip-hop producer and MARRICE ANTHONY as the best rapper alive.  I guarantee that this is the hottest EP you will hear this summer.  If you don't know, dont ask - just listen.  Preorders for limited cassette available now.
