ANNOUNCEMENT: Scylla Records - Ten Years in the Zoo

2016 marks the 10th anniversary of Scylla Records. Sometimes it's been wonderful, and some times it's been horribly cruel. The music industry is a zoo, but we're proud of what we've achieved, the bands we've worked with and the music that we have released over the last 10 years. Co-incidentally, our next release will be the 50th as a label and we wanted to do something a little special. We considered releasing a compilation of our last 10 years as a label, featuring all the bands from our first release (Out of Sight – Something Created By Belief) right through to our last physical release (Flights – History Be Kind) and some additional digitally releases. In the end, we decided to make a Spotify playlist for this instead! Which you can check out here

So instead, we decided to go back to our roots of pop punk, and bring them bang up to date with a compilation of some of the best UK and European pop punk bands on the circuit. So, Scylla Records presents Ten Years in the Zoo which is available now as a FREE/PAY-WHAT-YOU-WANT download from Bandcamp

We have made this compilation free with the hope of best spreading the word about the wonderful bands that are appearing on it. You can find out loads more about each of the bands, and Sarah DeRemer who has supplied the incredible image for the front cover.

Obviously, it would be wonderful if you could find it within yourself to donate a little when you download it, but if you can't, we just ask that you go to Facebook or Twitter or your social network of choice and post about the compilation. Thank you. 

Track Listing:
1) Sweet Little Machine - In God We Trust
2) The Adventures Of Litespeed - Understand
3) High Tides - Opia
4) Boy Mercury - Headspin
5) Coast To Coast - August
6) Planet Zero - Home
7) The Over Everythings - Medicate and Move On
8) Landmarks - Catapults
9) Not Today - Infinity
10) Where There's Life - Lego
11) Not Tonight and the Headaches - I Guess This is Progress
12) H_ngm_n - Stayed in the Matrix
13) Forever Unclean - Hangry!
14) Traitors! - The Boys of the Double Cross
15) Willowside Park - Atlas
16) Skyway Avenue - Battlescars
17) Tuskens - Dissolve
18) Better Than Never - Back of the Line, Kid
19) One Man Boycott - If Only You'd Stay
20) The Gospel Youth - If She's The Rope

In addition - we have made our entire back catalogue available for the one super low price of just £20.88 for the next week on Bandcamp too! That's 75% discount. If you're new to Scylla Records - this is the perfect way to explore our back catalogue. 

We also have some of wonderful things planned to celebrate this year, with new releases and hopefully one very special re-release later in the year. More news as and when it's available.

Finally, we have another announcement to make on Monday - keep you eyes and ears peeled.

FLIGHTS to release HISTORY BE KIND on Scylla Records

Scylla Records is excited to announce that on Monday October 6th we are releasing History Be Kind, the brand new album from Flights. The album is available to pre-order now from the official album mini site and is available on double 12" vinyl (Limited to just 100 copies worldwide) and digital. The album will be available from iTunes and the usual download/streaming sites on the release date. Album pre-orders come with an instant download of The Ghost of Things and a full album download on day of release. 


Joel from the band had the following to say about the upcoming album:

Hi, I’m Joel from Flights. We’ve got a new album called History Be Kind coming out on the 6th of October and it’s available to pre-order today.
Flights never set out with any particular long-term plan. Our initial aim was to 'write another song by the end of next month' - a lofty ambition! I think it's fair to say that each subsequent milestone that we achieved as a band has been met with a mixture of intense pride and bemused wonder – never quite knowing how we managed to find ourselves in the position we were in. But there was a point where we decided that we were going to write, record and release an album. Not just a quick EP, or the handful of songs that we had knocking around at the time. It would be more. Something that had an ebb and flow. Something that reflected the different facets of the band, and ultimately, something that we would be truly proud of.
Most of the ingredients that make up 'Flights' are present and correct on ‘History Be Kind’. Self- indulgent seven minute songs – check, silly time signatures – check, big guitars, delay, harmonies – check check check...but I also think there's a side to us that people haven't heard before. We've tried to rein it in a little, be a bit more concise, and definitely be more direct at certain points. It's been a challenge resisting the urge to throw in the kitchen sink when a song wasn't working!
So here it is; a year of our lives distilled into a collection of ten songs. Thank you so much for still paying attention. We hope you like it!
