Mailorder, Sound and Fury
Hey peoples. So we're slowly getting our stock back from Lumberjack, and are slowly getting all of the mailorder out to you. Thanks for your patience, and if you have any specific questions, please hit us up at info AT 1917records DOT com. :)

Sound and Fury 2010 (July 23-25, Earl Warren Showgrounds, Santa Barbara, CA) is kicking into gear - peep all the latest updates here: www.soundandfuryfestival.com


>> September 17, 2009
Sorry for the lack of updates lately - our distributor (Lumberjack) went out of biz, owing us 5 figures in $, and that has caused a few issues which is really slowing down mailorder. We're transitioning over to Rev right now, and dealing with that and separately working on getting all of the mail order fulfilled. Sorry for the delays, and thanks for understanding. This has always been a small operation, and we've been crippled by this.

Guns Up! is playing Belgium on Sept. 5. For details check their MySpace. More details on stateside shows for GU! soon.

The Guns Up! retrospective DVD, All This Was is in retail stores across the country now. Featuring the full set from their last show on February 2, 2007 in Hudson, MA, as well as interviews with the members of the band, this DVD is a nice cherry on the top of GU!'s 5 year run. You can also grab this in our webstore: www.1917warehouse.com.

In Violation news, they'll be playing the final Internal Affairs show @ Chain Reaction in Anaheim, CA on February 21. There's also an interview w/ Derek from Violation up here.

IV. I Rise, War Hungry on the road.


1917 is happy to announce that Toronto's MILLENIAL REIGN and California's VIOLATION will be joining the 1917 roster.

Violation has been steadily active and are currently writing their follow up to the Possessed EP, released earlier this year. Look for their debut LP/CD early Summer '08. Until then, you can listen to the entire Possessed EP here - www.soundandfurycollective.com/records/violation


Toronto's Millenial Reign are working on the finishing touches for their debut EP, Bones, Dust, Nothing. For now, "Luminous Veil" from is available on their myspace - www.myspace.com/themillenialreign - and speaks as much for this band as their infamous pedigree.


II. Big Merch Update

Lots of new merch for all of the current bands as well as a few classics we are dusting off. Keep your eyes peeled for further expansions in the webstore, but enjoy these for now!



III. 1917 Download Store

As you may or may not have noticed recently, 1917 is now offering *immediate* mp3 downloads for all vinyl purchases on the 1917 Warehouse (www.1917warehouse.com). All of the releases include high resolution cover artwork, as well as a PDF of the insert that comes with the record.

At the same time, if you're a person who avoids clutter, CD's, and vinyl, but still want to grab the tracks and artwork (or because you want to support the label and band by buying the release after you downloaded it somewhere else, but don't want to pay shipping...), you can do that here as well! Check that out here:


Several of the releases come with bonus material, such as the War Hungry 7" which comes with their full live set from this summers Sound and Fury Festival, and the Cold World 12" which contrains a 30+ minute dub-step remix by the bands drummer, Nick Woj.

The base quality of the downloads is 192 kbps, with some releases having the option to grab them at 320 kbps for $.25 more.


IV. I RISE and WAR HUNGRY hit the road...

I Rise looks forward to spending much of their time this winter touring, with a weekend trip to Canada with Soul Control coming up December 13th - 16th. Following this is an east coast trip with Maintain to This Is For You Fest. Check out Soul Control and Maintain, too. Very cool new(er) bands.

Containing all of the tracks from their first s/t 7" (Walk All Night), the Ice Grillz 7" (Lockin Out), as well as their Split with War Hungry (Six Feet Under), and their track on the Fucked Up mixtape, Vol. 2. Along with the CD is a 24-page booklet with liner notes from Nick and Alex of Cold World, as well as Damian from Fucked Up, Greg Willmott of Mental/Lockin Out, Hoodrack of War Hungry fame, and more. Not to be overshadowed, a DVD containing over 90 minutes of tour footage, and live footage also comes bundled with the CD release.

Preorders? CD/DVD orders for No Omega have shipped, and the vinyl for the No Omega should ship the first week of August - don't feel like you're missing out, though - the vinyl version is actually coming out about a month from today, so you're not missing out.

Bracewar will have their new record, Juggernaut out on 8.7.07. You can download a brand new track, Calling Out, right here. You can also preorder it now!

Attitude is currently on tour with Crime on Stereo, and they have their new 7", Turn Into Stone, with them! You can either grab an mp3 of the title track here, or listen to the entire record in a streaming eCard format here.

Cold World, I Rise, Snake Eyes, War Hungry, and Bracewar will have thier brand new records at Sound and Fury for the first time. The last 3 will have special presses for Sound and Fury.

Be good-

New bands, new records, new merch
Alright. To start it off, 1917 has added two new bands to the fold.

First being War Hungry from Wilkes-Barre, PA. Dudes just got back from a European tour, and will be rolling across the entire US this summer. They'll also be hitting Southern California for 3 shows in mid-April (14-16) with Iron Age & Rise and Fall. For more info, check the Tours page. We've also posted an mp3 from their split with Cold World on Six Feet Under Records (which you can buy here). The mp3 is for the track "Final Hour" - you can download it here.

Second is I Rise from Worcester, MA. ex-Youth Attack members who will be recording a 7" in April for their Summer tour with Down to Nothing, Verse, and Allegiance on their way out to Sound and Fury. We've made their entire demo (w/ lyrics) available for download here.

In additional Wilkes-Barre news, 1917 is going to be re-issuing the Cold World's Ice Grillz record, which was originally released on Lockin Out. It's slated to contain all of the original tracks, as well as tracks from their split with War Hungry, and some bonus DVD footage. It's also worth noting that Cold World will be entering Underground Sound Studios with Billy and Danny (Biohazard) sometime this Spring/Summer to record an album for their new label, Deathwish, Inc.. If you cannot wait for that, check out the Deathwish Podcast on iTunes for a new Cold World track.

Bracewar has demo'd a few tracks in preparation for recording their LP Juggernaut up in Stoughton, Mass. in mid-April. You can check those tracks out on their MySpace: www.myspace.com/bracewar.

We've also got a ton of new Guns Up!, Attitude, Bracewar, and 1917 merch on the 1917 Warehouse site. Check it!

Guns Up!: Last Shows
Announcement from the band:

Four and a half years; hundreds of shows, three US tours, three East Coast trips, a European tour, countless weekends, three records, who knows how many demos...four guitar players, three drummers, three bass players, two vans, at least a few grand worth of broken equipment, and about 12,458 shirt designs later...

...Guns Up! is done.

In brief, we've accomplished everything we could have ever hoped for. It's been a wild ride.

We would like to thank Sean Riley, Sean McKendry, Luke Dedeus, Steve Zuretti, Ryan Phillips, Justin Paling, Chucky Edge, James Vitalo, Michael Dolloff and anyone/everyone else as well as every band that's helped us along the way.

Your support and encouragement has been invaluable.

In addition to the couple shows we have currently scheduled, we will be playing 2 final shows on the West Coast:

January 12 - Anaheim, CA @ Chain Reaction w/ Sinking Ships, Shipwreck, and Violation
January 13 - Ventura, CA @ Alpine w/ Sinking Ships, Shipwreck, and Violation

And a final show on the East Coast:

February 3 - Haverhill, MA @ Welfare Records w/ Have Heart, Verse, Shipwreck, Harder the Fight, and Resist

Much love and respect,
Dan Heselton, Mike Kinlin, Rick Nukem, Greg Kell, and Chris Bailey


On a personal level, I'd like to say that meeting these 5 guys has been one of the highlights of my life. I talk to each of these guys on a regular basis, and would consider them as some of my closest friends. A special chapter of my life, no doubt about it. To anyone who has helped GU! and myself along the way, I hope to see you February to celebrate (Common Ground?).
