Louder Than War are very proud to announce something rather magical: four bands associated with the legendary Sarah Records are back on the road and back on vinyl. Even As We Speak, Boyracer, Secret Shine and Action Painting will be getting together for a series of dates this summer, so get yourselves along because this will probably never happen again. Even As We Speak have not toured the UK in over 25 years, and Action Painting! (check out the recent LTW interview) have reformed out of nowhere to be involved.
And to mark the occasion, a brand new LP featuring new and previously unavailable material from all four bands is available from Emotional Response Records. Each band has a brand new release of its own too. See here
Boyracer (pictured) and Emotional Response Records’ Stewart Anderson says: “Although there are many happy memories associated with the Sarah years, it should be pointed out that although this IS a celebration of independence and punk ethics, which links all four bands, we would also like to add that this is also about moving forward. All four bands are still actively making NEW music. So expect the hits, and a sprinkling of newies also! We hope to see you soon!”
