Happy Parting 'Unmake Me' release day!

Posted on June 4th, 2021

The day is finally here! You can hear the debut release 'Unmake Me' from emo-revival supergroup Keith Latinen (Empire! Empire!), Ben Hendricks (Annabel), Gooey Fame (ex-Dowsing), and John Gyunn (Hawk & Son). 7 tracks that bring the best of all their former bands into a new package. As soon as it's finished, you're going to want to listen again.

Get in on vinyl or cassette or if minimalism is your thing, get it on digital. Make sure to add the swan enamel pin in your order too! Streaming service links are all here:


Apple Music:





Co-release with our good friends over at strictly no capital letters (UK). Europe, get it from them!

Speaking of the enamel pin- there is a slight delay for the cardboard backings, so those will ship out around 6/13.

The cassette production also hit a snag. Long story short, the supply chain of gold cassettes went scarce due to COVID and has added literal months to the schedule. We ordered these back in April! Our plant tells us to expect them in July, so we are crossing our fingers that that is the latest we get them.
