ALBUM RELEASE // Viet Cong’s Self-Titled Album Out Worldwide Now, On Tour Starting January 28th

“At no point does Viet Cong ease up on the pressure; this is its mourning period, as the massive production culminates in a furious bonfire of rage and release that’s stunning in its scope. The year is too early to call, but if more records match Viet Cong’s restless moods, there may not be much left of us come December.” – NPR Music’s “First Listen”

Ladies & Gentleman, welcome to the cult of Viet Cong. We’ve been members for a while, and we’re glad you’ve joined us. Initiation involves jamming this album till your speakers bleed. Here’s the self-titled debut from Calgary’s finest, out now worldwide. Full tour dates after the jump.

Purchase the new album via SC Distribution [cassette / LP / CD bundles including poster], iTunes, Amazon, and your local record store.

In Memory and Celebration of Chris Reimer, Stream Both Women Albums Today At 3pm EST

In honor and memory of Chris Reimer, who passed away February 21st, 2012 due to complications from a heart condition, we invite fans and friends to celebrate his life and work with the band Women. Today at 3pm EST, we invite and encourage fans to listen to both Women albums back to back HERE. It’s a simple gesture in remembrance of our talented and compassionate friend, Chris.

RIP: Chris Reimer

We’re shocked and saddened to hear about the passing of Women guitarist, Chris Reimer. Chris’ virtuosic playing is one of the many reasons we fell in love with this band in the first place. If you were lucky enough to ever see them play live, you know what we mean. Always calm and collected while shredding. So much fun to watch. All of that aside, Chris was an incredible friend. He was one of the warmest and funniest people we’ve been lucky to know and work with. As sad as this is, it’s hard to not smile when thinking of him. Our love and support goes out to Chris’ family and friends. So so much love for you, Chris.
