Cut Teeth // New LP in summer 2014

After a quiet 2013, Chicago, IL's Cut Teeth will dust off their gritty, hook-laden indie-punk playbook and begin recording their full-length follow up to 2012's Televandalism EP.

The band will record with Pete Grossman at Bricktop Studios on January 18 where they will be tracking bass and drums. They'll then be recording everything else with drummer/engineer Matt Jordan (Stay Ahead of the Weather, You Blew It!) at his studio in Crystal Lake, IL in the following weeks. The yet-to-be-named album will be released in early summer — more information will be announced soon!

Summer pre-orders, re-presses & new releases!

Preorders!


image

Cut Teeth's debut EP, Televandalism, completely rips and reminds us a lot of what we love so much about bands like These Arms Are Snakes. Please check them out and pick up the record if you haven't yet!

image

Prawn just got back back from their EU / UK tour and are getting ready to hit the road again with Calculator. Their new EP LP Ships is still up for pre-order on our store, though — an update on this one: it's been delayed significantly due to some issues with the audio on vinyl not sounding as good as we want it to — with the band having been overseas, for over a month, troubleshooting this has been a slower than normal process. We'll keep you posted.

Re-presses!


image

Essential summer listening just got a re-press.

image

Suis La Lune's phenomenal new full length record, Riala, went out of press really fast, you guys! We've got a re-press for it up now, though!

image

Long out of print, My Heart to Joy's Reasons to Be is the last hurrah of one of the most essential bands in our brief catalog. We've put in a re-press for the 7" and expect to have it in over the next month. Pre-order it here.

image

One of the more prominent splits we've ever been a part of, The Saddest Landscape & Pianos Become the Teeth's split 7" has also gotten a facelift and is getting the re-press treatment.

Out now!


We're more than halfway through what has been / is shaping up to be a really busy summer for us. In addition to the re-presses and pre-orders above, Pswingset's All Our False Starts LP, Sirs' S/T LP & Duck. Little Brother, Duck!'s Don't Take Our Filth Away! LP are all officially out now.

Cut Teeth pre-order & music video

image

Pre-orders for Cut Teeth's ultra riff-heavy Televandalism are now up! Artwork for the records and shirts was done by the always fantastic Ben Sears. The band also has a new video (below) for "Stone of Yap" which was directed, shot & edited by Nick Cavalier.[[MORE]]

The creed of Cut Teeth is a simple one: to be loud and be loud together. Televandalism is the result of this mantra. No releases come to mind from this scene today that are more loud and unashamedly riff-heavy than this groundbreaking debut EP. Pick up a copy in our store!

Welcome Cut Teeth to the Topshelf Family!

We're Boston guys through and through, but boy, do we sure love Chicago. Chicago's pretty cool, you guys. When I heard one of the city's newest exports, Cut Teeth, I didn't even finish the record before I was texting another Windy City mainstay, Evan Weiss, about how to get in touch with these guys. And so here we are.

The creed of Cut Teeth is a simple one: to be loud and be loud together. Dan Yingling, Kyle Johns, Matt Jordan, Dustin Currier began doing so while writing together in Chicago early 2011 when the combination of inheriting a practice space and taking a break from their other musical pursuits (The Red Knife Lottery, Monday’s Hero, The Felix Culpa, Stay Ahead of the Weather) created a perfect storm of sorts. Televandalism was the result of this time. No releases come to mind from this scene today that are more loud and unashamedly riff-heavy than this groundbreaking debut EP. It is undoubtedly the most mature effort yet in their musical careers and has been enthusiastically received as such. As far as they’re concerned, the future won’t look too different.

Televandalism — originally self-released earlier this year as a digital-only EP — will be re-released by us on July 24th of this year. The six tracks have been remastered, the vinyl version will include a bonus track and Ben Sears has cooked up something really awesome for the album art.

We'll have more information soon. Until then, you can follow the band online on their Facebook, Tumblr & Twitter accounts.
