Beat Happening IDP Immigrant Defense Project Mac Demarco new product Record Store Day Shamir store news

Mac Demarco and Shamir's exclusive Record Store Day 7" featuring two covers of songs by iconic indie band Beat Happening, is now available online through Bandcamp and in our online store

This Record Store Day we partnered with Revolutions Per Minute to donate all the profits from this special release to the Immigrant Defense Project, an exceptional and important organization that, for the past 20 years, has been fighting to secure fairness and justice for all immigrants in the United States. Given the current political climate, increasing ICE raids and the vilification of immigrants, it is crucial to count on resources to help end this era of unprecedented mass criminalization, detention and deportation. Immigrants in the US need our help now more than ever!

To encourage higher donations, we also have an exclusive pin available on Bandcamp available to purchase alongside the digital album. This design is limited and only available through Bandcamp, so get one while you can!

To learn about more ways you can help IDP, visit their website. Stand with us and the Immigrant Defense Project in the fight against injustice towards immigrants and their families in this country!

Announcing Kevin Krauter's New Record, 'Toss Up,' Releasing First Single, "Rollerskate"

Color Vinyl Kevin Krauter New product Store news Toss Up

Here with his first single "Rollerskate" from his latest album, 'Toss Up,' we are so excited to announce Kevin Krauter as the newest addition to the Bayonet roster! We are so thrilled to be releasing the breath taking solo album by the Indiana songwriter on Bayonet June 15, and available for pre-order now.

 

Check out "Rollerskate" on Apple Music and Spotify, and watch the visual video here

‘Toss Up’ builds on the sonic worlds of Krauters’ first releases, conveying a similar mood with a greater array of instruments and influences. An insightful songwriter with a lyrical style that is both economical and evocative, Krauter crafts unique soundscapes that scramble a range of influences—‘60s flower pop, ‘70s easy listening, ‘80s New Wave,‘90s alt-radio, ’00s indie rock. The secret tension on 'Toss Up', the engine that drives these songs: melody propelled by rhythm, melancholy fended off by the exuberance of simply creating art.

Grab your copy of the limited edition clear green vinyl, which comes with a custom "Toss Up" wooden air glider you can "toss" into the sky as you bliss out while listening to the full album this summer! 

'Toss Up' is also available for pre-order in black vinyl, CD, and cassette formats.

Announcing Record Store Day Exclusive 7", 'Mac DeMarco and Shamir Cover Beat Happening'

7" Beat Happening Immigrant Defense Project Mac Demarco Record Store Day Shamir

We are very excited to announce that for this year's Record Store Day on April 21, Bayonet has teamed up with artists Mac Demarco and Shamir for an exclusive 7" featuring two covers of songs by iconic indie band Beat Happening!

We wanted to make this Record Store Day release extra special, which is why we are partnering with Revolutions Per Minute to donate all profits from the release to the Immigrant Defense Project, an exceptional and important organization that, for the past 20 years, has been providing much-needed legal aid and guidance to immigrants facing deportation and injustice in the United States. 

 

Myself, Siena and Dustin are all first generation immigrants. Our parents came to the United States respectively from Cuba and Colombia seeking better lives for themselves. We're forever grateful for the hardships they endured to get here and stay here. Without the sacrifices they made, we wouldn't be here today living out our dreams. This is why this project is so deeply personal to all of us. Help us as we stand with IDP against injustice to immigrants across the country!

Grab a copy of the exclusive clear vinyl at your local record store on Saturday, April 21, 2018. To find a participating store near you head to the official Record Store Day website here!
