BY SURPRISE - CRITERIA
"Criteria," recorded to analog tape with "Mountain Smashers" producer Dave Downham at Familyre Studios, begins with a blast of feedback, guitars riffing fuzzily, ringing out and pick sliding with some twinkly bits thrown in. The title track features Pat Gartland's off-kilter voice, sometimes terse, sometimes warbly, intoning lines with a directness not audible in past recordings - "Just because I don't open my mouth as much you, doesn't mean that I'm down or out." The three-song offering is familiar without treading old territory, masterfully embracing adulthood while conjuring a sense of youthful splendor; a glimmering self-awareness swirling around every song. 7" includes digital download.

WORLD IS A BEAUTIFUL PLACE & I AM NO LONGER AFRAID - FORMLESSNESS
Released earlier last year and taking some not-so-obvious cues from the likes of trailblazers Sunny Day Real Estate or American Football, "Formlessness" plays like every record we love - but never quite just one in particular - and that's our favorite part about it. The band has grabbed hold of classic moments like the more spastic buildups on a Kickball record or even the quieter lulls of Slint's "Spiderland" in an entirely fresh and down-right invigorating direction. With the release of "Formlessness," TWIABP is quickly joining the ranks of their peers like Annabel and Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate). 7" includes digital download. Worldwide exclusive.

DANGERS - THE BEND IN THE BREAK (180 GR)
DANGERS is a hardcore punk band from Los Angeles, California. They have been playing basements, garages, living rooms, squats, warehouses, banquet halls, high school auditoriums, Adriatic beach resorts, abandoned Soviet furniture factories, and public park gazebos since the winter of 2005. In their decade of existence, they have booked their own tours across the United States, Europe, United Kingdom, Australia, Japan, and Southeast Asia. After self-releasing two critically-acclaimed LPs and two EPs on their own Vitriol Records, they are now pushing their third LP, The Bend in the Break, out into the world via Topshelf Records. It is an attempt to locate the band within the rapidly changing landscapes of both loud music and our rotten culture-at-large, and finds the band incorporating its roots into a sound and performance more their own than ever. 12 page insert, 180 gram black vinyl. No sales to UMG accounts.

DEFEATER - TRAVELS
Reissued on translucent gold with black smoke vinyl. Defeater is one of the most attention-grabbing hardcore bands we've heard in a long time. Their debut album Travels was originally released on CD by Topshelf Records in September of 2008 and is now available again.

Ethically influenced by bands like Fugazi, Minor Threat or Modern Life Is War, Travels is challenging to the very notion of what hardcore is and lyrically unlike any album in the last decade.

NAI HARVEST - HAIRBALL (COLOR)
"Hairball", produced by Bob Cooper (Citizen), is a record that defines where Nai Harvest (Sheffield, UK) are right now. A pair of best friends who have found their sound on their own terms after two years of near relentless touring that has taken them to the other side of the world and back. Racing through 80's and 90's influenced indie rock, "Hairball" continues on the theme of their last EP and single releases, only letting up to take sharp turns into hazy garage-punk and feedback-laden grunge.

O.S.T./PATRICK NETTESHEIM - COVEN
Forever Midnight is proud to announce the release of the soundtrack album to 'Coven' (pronounced with a long 'O' like 'woven', not like 'oven') - the legendary 1997 short horror film by Mark Borchardt. Patrick Nettesheim's score is a brooding assortment of dreamlike synths, overdriven guitars, pounding drums and wailing choirs, all run through a charming and creepy home-recorded filter. From the opening, ominous bending bass hits to the final slow-dancing pianos, this thoughtful soundtrack conjures images of dilapidated scarecrows, haunted drive-ins and black-robed fiends - a perfect complement to Coven's stark black and white imagery and harrowing themes.

SPECIAL EXPLOSION - THE ART OF MOTHERING (CLEAR)
Seattle, WA's Special Explosion are instantly and undeniably infectious - equal parts studied, poised and deliberate - while also wide-eyed and anxious. It comes across in everything from our conversations with them to their live show (seriously, watch the video below). It'd be too easy to pigeon hole their sound with comparisons to the likes of other great Northwest acts like Death Cab for Cutie, Built to Spill, The Thermals or Kind of Like Spitting (they're currently Ben Barnett's backing band), but the band avoids these trappings by time and time again adding their own unique spin to this sound. There's no formula here and you get the sense they're having a lot of fun creating something that's, well, special. No Caroline/UNI accounts.

The five-piece has become one of the loudest-and sweetest-bands in its hometown of Baltimore. Drawing influences from '60s girl groups, '80s post punk, indie pop, and shoegaze, the group's blasts of distortion and use of dense textures are balanced with beautiful pop tunes and chiming guitar work.

BELLOWS - FIST & PALM
Bellows is the bedroom recording project of songwriter and producer Oliver Kalb. The sound of Bellows is sensory and delicate, subtle and quiet but erupting with frantic wobbling drums, large orchestral sections and bursts of noise that push the conventions of pop and folk. Bellows' third album Fist & Palm marks a drastic change in Kalb's sound. Mixed by Jack Greenleaf (Eskimeaux, Sharpless), the record experiments with aggressive sequenced drums and electronic sounds, taking its influence as much from contemporary pop as it does from early 2000's Pacific-Northwest lo-fi.

DANGERS - THE BEND IN THE BREAK
DANGERS is a hardcore punk band from Los Angeles, California. They have been playing basements, garages, living rooms, squats, warehouses, banquet halls, high school auditoriums, Adriatic beach resorts, abandoned Soviet furniture factories, and public park gazebos since the winter of 2005. In their decade of existence, they have booked their own tours across the United States, Europe, United Kingdom, Australia, Japan, and Southeast Asia. After self-releasing two critically-acclaimed LPs and two EPs on their own Vitriol Records, they are now pushing their third LP, The Bend in the Break, out into the world via Topshelf Records. It is an attempt to locate the band within the rapidly changing landscapes of both loud music and our rotten culture-at-large, and finds the band incorporating its roots into a sound and performance more their own than ever.

HEAT - OVERNIGHT
Recorded at Montreal's Breakglass Studio, the recording process was something of a rocky road for the band but the resulting record is a vehement leap forward, and one that looks set to cement Heat's status as one of Canada's most formidable exports. Led by the band's three founding members, Susil Sharma (Vocals, Guitar, Synth), Matthew Fiorentino (Guitar, Synth), and Raphael Bussieres (Bass), Overnight feels resolutely solid; old-school aesthetics delivered with a defiantly fresh-faced outlook. Co-produced by Grammy Award winner Alex Newport, who has worked with the likes of Death Cab and At The Drive-In. FFO: Echo & The Bunnymen, Merchandise, Velvet Underground. No sales to UMG accounts.

JAY SOM - INTO YOU
Melina Duterte released her first big solo full-length under the Jay Som moniker with the awe-inspiring and already much lauded Turn Into. Turn Into offers immediate gratification that does not require one to be familiar with Melina's work with Summer Peaks, nor previous single releases. Even those familiar with a handful of masters that were being traded amongst artists and labels for the past year will discover them and more in a crafty album order that keeps the DIY thrills in a constant state of beguiling wonder.

MELT - RIFFER
Riffer is the debut full-length from New Jersey quartet, MELT. This album has the same name as their previous EP and includes new versions of those songs, along with some new ones. We are co-releasing 'Riffer' with Danger Collective Records. "Channeling that sense of a listlessness which seems sit at the heart of the American way of life, "Riffer" manages that rare trick of feeling both decidely burned-out but endearingly anthemic. Most of the tracks fall in to the short-sharp sub-three minute category, but the record never once feels fleeting. Underpinned by smart pop-punk sensbililities, Melts success lies in their ability to derive a genuine sense of atmosphere from otherwise banal surroundings." -GoldFlakePaint

DANGERS - THE BEND IN THE BREAK
DANGERS is a hardcore punk band from Los Angeles, California. They have been playing basements, garages, living rooms, squats, warehouses, banquet halls, high school auditoriums, Adriatic beach resorts, abandoned Soviet furniture factories, and public park gazebos since the winter of 2005. In their decade of existence, they have booked their own tours across the United States, Europe, United Kingdom, Australia, Japan, and Southeast Asia. After self-releasing two critically-acclaimed LPs and two EPs on their own Vitriol Records, they are now pushing their third LP, The Bend in the Break, out into the world via Topshelf Records. It is an attempt to locate the band within the rapidly changing landscapes of both loud music and our rotten culture-at-large, and finds the band incorporating its roots into a sound and performance more their own than ever.

HEAT - OVERNIGHT
Recorded at Montreal's Breakglass Studio, the recording process was something of a rocky road for the band but the resulting record is a vehement leap forward, and one that looks set to cement Heat's status as one of Canada's most formidable exports. Led by the band's three founding members, Susil Sharma (Vocals, Guitar, Synth), Matthew Fiorentino (Guitar, Synth), and Raphael Bussieres (Bass), Overnight feels resolutely solid; old-school aesthetics delivered with a defiantly fresh-faced outlook. Co-produced by Grammy Award winner Alex Newport, who has worked with the likes of Death Cab and At The Drive-In. FFO: Echo & The Bunnymen, Merchandise, Velvet Underground. No sales to UMG accounts.

SOLIDS - ELSE
Else, sees the band checking in after a year of near-endless touring. Having played more than 200 shows in 2014-2015 with the likes of Pity Sex, Makthaverskan, Nothing, PUP, Single Mothers and Metz, the EP reflects that road weariness with a group of songs that vibrate at a lower frequency. These tracks document the waiting, the bleary-eyed confusion and the blur of days that come with life on the road. FFO: Hum, Dinosaur Jr, Drive Like Jehu, Yo La Tengo. No to UMG accounts/no exports to Canada.


TRACKLISTING:  01. BLANK STARE 02. WAIT IT OUT 03. BLURS 04. SHINE
