Come Friday, we’ll have new merch designs up, new re-presses in and re-stocks of a bunch of winter stuff.
Pre-order Slingshot Dakota’s “Dark Hearts”!

Slingshot Dakota is a band that, if you’re reading this, you likely know and love. They’re fantastic musicians and even better people. Their knack for writing catchy songs paired with their innate ability to do things with their two instruments that most bands can’t do with a standard set up is trumped only by the very real and sincere passion behind it all. So, we’re thrilled to announce today that pre-orders for the pair’s new record, Dark Hearts, are now up!
Out November 6th, Dark Hearts is an important record for them and will certainly be an important one in the history of our catalog. We’re thrilled to be releasing it and hope you’re all excited for it as well!
You can now pre-order the record through the Topshelf Records web store.
In the meantime, you can download/stream two new tracks from the record now!:
Let us all rejoice! Listening now… Fingers crossed that they’re good!
The Saddest Landscape’s “Redefining Loneliness” 7-inches are up for pre-order now (new hoodies & shirt too)!
Pre-orders for We Were Skeletons’ “Blame & Aging” // Fall tour dates!
With the musical prowess and aggression of bands like Fugazi and Shotmaker, We Were Skeletons’ unique brand of technical, groovy, and emotional hardcore should appeal to long-time fans of the genre while still pushing its boundaries. Imagine Hot Snakes, Slint, Sleepytime Trio, mewithoutYou and Off Minor all rolled into one breathtaking statement — and I’m not just saying that. I never just say that. But still, to reiterate: I’m not just saying that.
Blame & Aging is a record that one-ups anything and everything this band has ever done and is the band’s best collection of songs to date (trust us, we’ve known them for a while). Featuring 13 awesome new tracks, Blame & Aging will be released on October 22nd everywhere. Order it in the Topshelf store now!
Absolutepunk has premiered “Disease Artist”, the sixth track from the record over on their site. Go give it a spin!
