Just retweeted The Jazz June retweeting us retweeting Signals Midwest praising the new The World Is a Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid to Die LP while listening to a toe test press. Life is fucking cool right now.
go-to-space asked: Hey sorry if you get this a lot, when can we expect a digital download of Whenever, If Ever if we pre-ordered the 12"? (I don't think this is a mail order question)
catchforus-thefoxes asked: Will you have your releases (the available ones) with you at Bled Fest? I wanted to place an order this weekend but it might be much cheaper to buy them at Bled (as I'm coming to the US for the festival and some other stuff) and put them in my carry-on luggage on the plane back to Belgium.
Cambridge Elks - TWIABP →
Live at the Elks Lodge in Cambridge, MA on May 18th, 2013. Photos from last night.
desperatedescension asked: Hey, me and my friend want to preorder TWIABP and Have Mercy's CD and LP bundle but the shipping cost is astronomical... I mean we're from Australia but for 2 CD and 2 LP bundles is shouldn't be $75...
dmkato asked: Hey, do you know when the Empire! Empire! On Time Spent Waiting EP is supposed to ship?
The World Is a Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid to Vine.
wherepostsgotodie asked: Hey guys. It sucks that W,IE got leaked but I just heard it on BandCamp and immediately had to buy it. Whenever Toe's discog gets released over here I'll definitely line that up too. Hope everyone is doing okay! Have a good one. :)
I think Mega Steve and the evolved form, Ultimate Steve, are both water-based Pokemon.

Have Mercy: "The Earth Pushed Back" →
Today’s stream comes from Baltimore, MD-based Have Mercy. We’ve got a stream of the band’s new release, The Earth Pushed Back. The album was produced by J. Robbins. You can find it on their Punknews.org Profile. (Just to editorialize for a second, the first single from the album (and from th. !!!
iamsofuckingboring asked: Unwanted opinion trigger warning: I don't think you should worry about the leak, because honestly, most of the people who are/were excited as fuck about the leak will most likely end up buying physical copies of the album, for two reasons: 1) They love the shit out of TWIAP 2) Much like Enemies List is doing, people have developed a love for your label and your ethos because of you offering...
shinjibaka asked: I doubt it very much, but do you think The World Is... will have vinyl copies of whenever, if ever at bledfest this year? Its basically next week so probably not, but worth the ask.
The World Is A Beautiful Place Respond To Month...
propertyofzack: The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die’s Whenever, If Ever leaked onto the internet over a month early today. The release was set to be Topshelf Records’ biggest release of the year, so please pre-order it here. The band has smartly reacted to the leak with an announcement and stream of the album early. You can stream the record, buy the record, and...
jimmyisboring asked: Do you guys think TWIABP will have copies of the new LP in time for this coming US tour or no?
thekoogerden asked: Thank you for doing what you're doing with Toe. Shit's real as the streets and they deserve it. Honestly I'm very happy that you're releasing their discog.
haileyvedge asked: Are you going to table anywhere at Pouzza Fest this weekend??
33leagues asked: When are the Enemies preorders going to be going up?
hypedxvoid asked: please bring lots of vinyl to Bledfest. Especially the new Have Mercy full length <3
ydoc asked: I know i'm probably too late, but will you guys ever do a repress of Toe's For Long Tomorrow? Do you know of any site I can currently order one?
Whenever, If Ever
Today was an exciting one here at our office as it saw the unveiling of two very special, near and dear records and our first foray into putting out a book (even if it has 200 pages and probably less than 200 words, haha). The humbling feeling of validation when you see something you believe in getting such widespread praise and support is something I hope everyone gets to experience at some point...
juliankoster asked: Hey, what kind of shirts are the ones included in the twiabp bundle?
The World Is a Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid to Die - “Picture of a Tree That Doesn’t Look OK” from Whenever, If Ever — which will be out June 18, 2013 and is available for pre-order now in our store. Read Purevolume’s post with a quote from Greg about how the song came together along with the band’s upcoming tour dates here.
angelofiaretti asked: Hey dad. Do you like me?

Crash of Rhinos // Topshelf Records
Ever since first hearing Distal in 2011 we’ve been hooked on Crash of Rhinos. The Derby, UK natives have written a record — entitled Knots — that is exactly what I ever want to listen to. So when we were asked to get involved with releasing it, it was kind of a no-brainer. Sonically, it fits perfectly with our catalog and if you’re typically a fan of records we put out, you’re...
desperate-vespers asked: I know this might have been asked already, but any chance of a Grow Up, Dude repress soon?
butter-spreadenson asked: Were you guys ever in a band?
deathcabforkehan asked: What was the first ever topshelf release?
luuther asked: Maybe I missed the news, but is their any on the Seasons in Verse records? I'm also curious if there will ever be a repressing of A Forrest of Polarity.
az-mah asked: What's the saddest record you could recommend?
