OOH CRIKEY IT'S…, the long out-of-print debut album from British madcap thrashers LAWNMOWER DETH, is out now on Full Dynamic Range vinyl, CD and digital download.

Originally released in 1990, OOH CRIKEY IT'S… went hand-in-hand with LAWNMOWER DETH's notoriously anarchic live shows in leading the band to develop a cult following and feature regularly in the UK Indie Chart.  The band have reformed in recent years and have since made appearances at a number of legendary festivals, including Download, Sonisphere and Damnation, with fans persistently requesting a reprint of the debut.

OOH CRIKEY IT'S… has been specially remastered from the original tapes in Full Dynamic Range (FDR) audio, allowing the music's nuances to shine through and giving the whole album a more ferocious and dynamic sound than ever before.

The album is available now on Full Dynamic Range CD, as well as vinyl in the following limited quantities and colours:

100 - Clear
200 - Green & White Splatter
300 - Green
400 - Black

THE TEMPERANCE MOVEMENT TO RELEASE 2 DISC DELUXE EDITION OF SELF-TITLED DEBUT ALBUM

The UK's finest new rock band, THE TEMPERANCE MOVEMENT, will release a 2 Disc Deluxe Edition of their self-titled debut album on October 6th to coincide with the release of their next single, "Chinese Lanterns", on the same day.

"The Temperance Movement" was originally released in September 2013, debuting at number 12 in the UK album chart and had critics purring, with Mojo calling it "fresh, lithe and muscular".  With the band coming off a recent European and UK tour which culminated in opening slots for THE ROLLING STONES, the 2 Disc Deluxe Edition is an expanded version with a bonus disc containing five exclusive live tracks from the tour as well as an additional photo booklet packed with images from the band's personal archives.

The new single, "Chinese Lanterns", is a beautiful, harmony-laden acoustic song which singer Phil Campbell says is about "love's fragility and the difficulty of letting someone go".

THE TEMPERANCE MOVEMENT have toured non-stop since the release of their debut album, with spellbinding sets at T in the Park and Download, a sold out date at the Shepherd's Bush Empire and winning the "Best New Band" award at the Classic Rock Awards.  They are currently squirrelled away in the studio; expect a new album in 2015.

"We're really pleased to be bringing The More I See out with us in November.  We've known the guys for a while and they're a great bunch, and also a great new British heavy metal band.  Bring on November!"

THE MORE I SEE lead guitarist GIZZ BUTT adds:

"It's an absolute honour and a very exciting prospect that we will be touring with Savage Messiah in the fall of 2014.  After the 'Plague of Conscience' album being eternally on repeat in The More I See band van, then 'The Fateful Dark' arriving in March 2014, and THEN to share quality time with Dave Silver as a fellow Heavy Metal Truant on the 160-mile cycle ride 'to Download or bust', it's a privilege to be able to support a band we all really dig and feel akin with from a musical and labelmates perspective.  FUCKING BRING THE FUCKER ON!!!"
