HAIR PULLER / DEAD TROPICS - Split Cassette
I'm excited to announce the first cassette-only release on Accident Prone in nearly 20 years: the Hair Puller / Dead Tropics split! Both bands hail from our home in Portland, OR, and play their own unique, and intense, hybrids of punk, metal, and hardcore.
Both Hair Puller and Dead Tropics are good friends of the label, put on high energy live shows, and are politically active, so I've been hoping to work with each of them for awhile. While trying to figure out in what capacity that could happen, it occurred to me that they'd make for a great split, so I reached out, and here we are!
The Hair Puller / Dead Tropics split will be released on June 23. Preview tracks, as well as pre-orders for both the cassette and digital version, are available at accidentprone.com/store (pre-orders for the cassette will ship on June 26).
For those of you in the Portland area, we'll be throwing a cassette release party on June 23 at The Tonic Lounge! Hair Puller and Dead Tropics will be joined by their friends Carrion Spring and She. Doors are $8, but $12 will get you both the tape and entry to the show! Join us!? Event invite here: https://www.facebook.com/events/294727527651768/

THE POD - s/t
In anticipation of Friday's release of The Pod's self-titled album, we're streaming the entire first half of the album for free over at Accident Prone's Bandcamp! The Pod is a solo project of Scott Endres from North Carolina's political doom masters, MAKE, whose album, Pilgrimage of Loathing, came out last year on Accident Prone.
The Pod is set to be released digitally on June 2, with the LP expected to arrive in mid-to-late June. Pre-orders for both formats are available at accidentprone.com/store (pre-orders for the LP are set at a discounted price of $17ppd).

We've got another upcoming release announcement coming in the next couple weeks, and two more to follow shortly thereafter... Busy, busy busy!!
ACCIDENT PRONE stands in solidarity with struggling and oppressed people everywhere, and will continue fighting for social justice in whatever capacity possible. If you have a project or an idea that you think we might be able to collaborate on, please don't hesitate to get in touch!
As always, thank you for your support,
