Be Forest’s Cold is finally back on catalog in a Deluxe vinyl 12″ plus Flexi Disc

We are very happy to announce that Be Forest’s debut LP Cold is finally being repressed in a new deluxe vinyl reissue with modified graphics and added audio track(s). After the release in 2011 the records disappeared pretty quickly and we have since then received a great number of requests for a vinyl reissue, so we are extremely pleased to be working on this deluxe limited edition, pressed on doublemint opaque vinyl and packaged in a thick tip-on style jacket. The artwork is an elaboration of the original cover, and includes an insert with lyrics. The tracklist is enriched by the closing I.O., but the added gem is a song pressed on a flexi disc inserted in the jacket. The vinyls are available for pre-order now and will ship at the beginning of October 2017. Get your copy before it sells out again!

In the meantime the band is also busy working on new material and will take the stage in the fall to celebrate the reissue of Cold while testing some new tunes with some special shows. Here the details:


Introducing: Jake Bellissimo

Northern Transmissions broke the news with the video premiere of Independence Day, the first single from Jake Bellissimo‘s first full length “The Good We’ve Sewn”, due out October 20th. We are really happy to collaborating with this young classically trained composer and songwriter from Rochester, NY. We fell in love with Jake’s debut album the moment we received it in our inbox, and we are pretty sure you will love it too (if Independence Day hasn’t convinced you yet!), so we give you the chance to pre-order “The Good We’ve Sewn” in one of the two vinyl options (pink and clear) through our bandcamp pages below. And if you are lucky enough you might catch Jake Bellissimo on tour around Europe in the next few weeks! Details in the poster below.

As if this weren’t enough, there are 2 new videos that just dropped last week premiered by Impose: in Brothers in Law’s Oh, Sweet Song, filmed by Lorenzo Musto, “the chords and keyboard hooks ascend to celestial heights, while Musto exhibits feelings of euphoria and elation that are executed in the most minimalist, yet effective assembly of interpretive presentation.”

Burnt Palms’s frontwoman Riley’s video for Over “illustrates the local splendors seen from coastal windows to the sea, shore-side vegetation, the windy two-lane twists & turns of Highway 1 and more that is something of a living postcard for the 831 area code.”

And if you want more, here are the US tour dates for the 4 bands in case you prefer to avoid Red River and 6th this week and hope in a more intimate show…
