We have two releases finally available today - Anxiety & Everything Else EP from Dead Swans and the final installment in the DYS singles series, a cover of Motorhead's (We Are) The Road Crew - both are totally awesome, and both are totally worth picking up.

Dead Swans have been turning a lot of heads with this new EP - Alt Press said the band sounds "...like they should be based in Boston and playing long-ago classic hardcore shows with the Hope Conspiracy and American Nightmare." Absolutepunk also sang its praises, saying "Trapped in the thick of melancholy, fury, and classic hardcore throwbacks, Anxiety rams beyond what no prescription drug could ever alleviate." Our friends at Blowthescene recently interviewed Dead Swans frontman, Nick, and you can check that interview out here. Pick up a copy of Anxiety & Everything Else at your favorite retailer or online at your favorite online store and mine, B9Store.com.

“(We Are) The Road Crew” – DYS's fourth Digital single in a series - is also available today! Get the track for only 99 cents on Amazon.com, iTunes.com, and B9Store.com. DYS will be hitting the road in support of their new singles, starting with a triumphant return to their hometown of Boston on March 14th in support of the Dropkick Murphys, as part of the St. Patrick’s Day Shows. The band will then immediately fly to Texas and participate in the 10th Anniversary Shirts for a Cure SXSW Showcase at Red 7. DYS will also play several other shows in Texas as part of the same run. In April, DYS will tour Europe around their 4/29 Groezrock appearance. On May 19th, DYS will play the 2012 Black and Blue Bowl at Webster Hall in New York City - check out the full show listing below.
