all things old school: THE OTHERS - Red Eyes

Thursday, October 2, 2014


Location: Perth, AUS
Release: Shaman Records, 2013

5 months on the wait! That is the amount of time a LP takes to get from Perth (Australia) to São Paulo (Brazil), across the seven seas here's the debut full-length by THE OTHERS!

In 2012 they put out the Sun and Sea EP, perfect 4-song summer jams, a 5 out of 5 score! For Red Eyes they deliver 11 songs Planet Mental style, mid-tempo 2-steps hardcore flavoured with their distinct Perth groove and boosted by a great overall production.

Weird fact, I remember Six Feet Under Records announcing it sometime in 2013 as a future release and what was supposed to be SFU085 became Mother of Mercy I+II, it also has no mention in SFU discography's website or bandcamp. On the other hand, the Perth based label Shaman Records had it for a while so I made my move and ordered one. Unluckily all limited colored vinyl were gone but they handed a free The Others t-shirt as a compensation for the pricey shipping cost, SWEET!

As I waited for my copy to arrive, Deathwish Inc. put some copies for sale in exclusive limited colour (opaque red in cyan blue). Heres the pressing info for this gorgeous gatefold album:

50: Solid red
150: Bone with red haze
200: Solid black
60: Opaque red in cyan blue 


Scheduled for December is their new EP Rain Dance in 7" and tape formats, also through Shaman Records. Siked!!
