300 7"s were pressed when this came out in 2011 (a split release between Migration Media, PAST/FUTURES, Revolution Summer, Dingleberry Records, and Adagio830) and I just realized I've been sitting on 50 copies of this for four years. This is long, long, long out of print. Packaged in handscreened manilla envelopes, just like the old days.
Includes unlimited streaming of Bee Control

Bee Control was/is(?) a hardcore trio composed of Dave Laney (Milemarker, Auxes, Challenger), Trevor Shelley de Brauw (Pelican, Tusk, Chord) and Theo Katsaounis (Joan of Arc, Locks, Hey Tonal, et al ad infinitum). The four quick blasts that comprise the tracklisting of the group’s debut 7″ are a distillation of the ferocity and simplicity of early 80′s hardcore with the willful avantisms and lyrical nihilism that informed the mid-90′s punk scene in which these musicians originally got their start. At the core of the EP is a desire to tap into the same fertile soil in which their musical lives originally took root, to recapture and reevaluate their youthful rage with wisened eyes, and to eradicate any misconceptions of middle aged contentment – the bitterness increases by the day.
