    Discuss Will Swan's post-hardcore focused record label. They've done a great job of building a sense of community around their artists in the last couple years... one of the better niche labels out there in my opinion.

    Releases to date:

    Stolas - Living Creatures: March 14, 2013
    Sianvar - Sianvar EP: January 5, 2014
    Kurt Travis - Everything Is Beautiful: May 14, 2014
    Secret Band - Secret Band EP: June 3, 2014
    Secret Band - Secret Band LP: July 31, 2014

    Eidola's Degeneraterra is seriously underrated outside of post-hardcore fanatics in my opinion. Would definitely recommend it.

    Wooo!! They're super underrated and Andrew is an incredibly cool guy. Kills it as touring guitarist for DGD too.

    Yup, the Twisted Tongues song is the best on here by a long shot. Overall an enjoyable album, but doesn't really "stand out" too much. The clean vocalist is definitely good, but I think they need to find a way to utilize him more effectively, similar to how they did for Twisted Tongues.
