Bleached "Carter" 7" Available For Pre Order


Over here at Art Fag HQ one of our all time favorite California punk bands is Mika Miko. That being said, it makes it even more badd ass and exciting to announce the release of former Mika Miko members Jennifer and Jessie Clavin's new Bleached 7". Bleached carries on the MM tradition of freewheeling punk spirit with a nu slant toward the 60s and Ramones style bubblegum. The "Carter" 7" has two brand new and addictive sing-a-longs, "Think Of You" and "You Take Time".

Think of You by Art Fag Recordings

Look for Bleached to play a ton of shows this summer including shows with Hunx And His Punx in SD/LA tonight and Saturday plus a short west coast tour with Plateaus and Heavy Hawaii in mid August. More live info at Bleached's website. Publicity for Bleached: Stephanie Weiss sweiss84@gmail.com.

"Carter" will be available digitally worldwide on July 19, and vinyl will ship shortly thereafter. The 7" will come in a limited first pressing of 500 on black vinyl. You can order below or on our Shop page link above.

Updatez

Hey, welcome to summer from Art Fag HQ. Wanted to update some important musical topics. Firstly, Plateaus and Psychic Dancehall singles are now up digitally on most sites in all regions worldwide. Plateaus came in and shipped out last week! All preorders should have found a home on yr doorstep or turntable. Psychics will be in very soon and ship out soon thereafter. Best Coast's Sun Was High on sea foam green, All Saints Day on red vinyl available now too.

In other news, Young Prisms are recording their 12" record for Art Fag Recordings as we speak and will be celebrating its completion with a special show with Cold Showers at San Diego's Tower Bar. We're psyched. It costs $5 and there is no presale. Crocodiles and our Mario Orduno are djing too. Hope to see all the freaks out.

Lastly, a lot going on at the HQ this summer. More releases from Bleached, Colleen Green, Psychic Dancehall, Plateaus, Heavy Hawaii, All Saints Day and more all in the works now. Heavy Hawaii/Plateaus tour in August (stay tuned).
