Bands to Perform Hometown RSD In-Store Performances in Grand Rapids and Philadelphia!

"...Creepoid is something altogether novel. The young, co-ed Philadelphia quartet knows full well how to crank up the distortion--but it does so in service of a dreamy, drifting, wistful indie-rock. That said, Creepoid's debut full-length, Horse Heaven, isn't some polished piece of car-commercial fodder; just raw and snaky enough to feel eerily unhinged, the disc simmers like vat of molasses as the vocals of guitarist Sean Miller and bassist Anna Troxell build to a sweet, black oblivion." - The AV Club

“Shores quietly released their sophomore album this Fall, fitting for a band self described as “bummercore.” Their brand of sleepy slowcore thrives from well constructed crescendos where volume reigns supreme. Dynamics are radiant throughout the record as everything crawls forward in a Codeine influenced haze.” - Exploding in Sound

Featuring two of No Idea's heroic and cult-celebrated "slowcore" acts, the Creepoid / Shores split EP follows the newly reissued "Horse Heaven" LP from Philadelphia's Creepoid, and serves as a preface to the upcoming "Leavening" LP from Grand Rapids, MI's Shores (out this Summer, also on No Idea). In support of the new release, both bands have premiered material from the new release, including Creepoid's video for new song "Golden String" debuting exclusively at Consequence of Sound (which follows last week's track premiere on, and Shores' new song "Weak Trees" currently streaming at
