Underground EP

Hey, we regret to announce that the much anticipated LP version of our debut album seems very unlikely to happen. Blame bad arrangements and the whole shitty economic situation here etc 

Anyway, the good news is that we decided to release a new two-track CD EP entitled Underground, containing two unreleased tracks from the album sessions: Underground and Outta My Mind.

The new EP will be a limited edition of 300 CD's and will be given away for free at gigs hand to hand. It will be also made available as a free digital download in bandcamp.

Since the CD of our debut has long been sold out, we have repressed another batch of CD's available from us, Fuzz Overdose Records and usual r'n'r record stores.

Stay tuned and remember...we're all lost somewhere in the Underground!

Live: The Obits w/ The Dark Rags

What: Live show
Who: The Obits (US) w/ False Alarm and The Dark Rags
Where: Six Dogs
When: Wednesday, October 17
