Things are starting to heat up around the ‘ol Bellyache HQ and we figured it was high time to announce some upcoming releases!

First off, Bellyache Records #32, is a real toe tapping double A-Side 7 Inch from DUENDE & PASSALACQUA collaborating on 2 fresh tracks: “Boss Radio” & “Detroit J”. On A-Side #1, we have classic Duende doing that twangy stomp that they are known for but this time adding some freestyle rappin’ from Mister of Passalacqua . Flipping over to A-Side #2, “Detroit J”, featuring Passalacqua, is a groovy funk number that is dripping with hot butter as smooth as the shiny bald dome of one Isaac Hayes! Be on the look out for it this September, complete with a download code containing bonus remixes!

Next up, we are proud to announce that we will be releasing the sophomore (and Bellyache Records debut) record from PEWTER CUB, entitled “If You Can Hold Your Breath”. This LP is currently in the mixing stage, and from what our fly on the wall has already heard, we can safely assure you that it is going to be a triumphant leap forward for the trio musically, sonically & possibly even cosmically!!! Look for a late fall release date on vinyl with digital download code! ***UPDATE*** The LP is now slated for a late January 2013 Release!!!

THE MUGGS will be recording their first ever Live LP at their favorite stomping ground, The Cadieux Cafe in late October! The Muggs never disappoint and always deliver a high energy performance, its been high time to capture it and encase it on vinyl! So we are proud to promise you a scorching Deluxe 2xLP set from our boys sometime in late 2012/early2013!

THE OSCILLATING FAN CLUB will be entering the studio to begin recording their 3rd Full Length LP (and 2nd for Bellyache), in September! Guitarist/Vocalist Ray Thompson told us to expect some more curve balls, musically speaking that is, as the band is always adding more touches of influence from their sick record collecting habits to their ever growing repertoire of unique music. An early 2013 release is expected.

In the Rumour Mill department, Bellyache Records may be releasing an upcoming Limited Edition Split 7″ single with indie power pop rockers, COPPER THIEVES and rootsy pop rockers, BIG MESS! More details to come(???) ***UPDATE*** The single is on and releases in February 2013!

In the “Where’s that GRANDE NATIONALS Record?” department, more progress was made recently in the ongoing effort not to remake “The Wall” or become the next “Chinese Democracy” :P Hopefully the record will be available before the bands 10 year Anniversary in February 2013! KEEP YOUR FINGERS CROSSED!

Is that all?
