Kowloon Walled City LP+CD Preorders (San Fran sludge/noiserock)
Not sure if anyone is into this band, but they have a poster or two on here and there are some limited screen-printed goods offered with the release. My label, The Perpetual Motion Machine, is releasing the debut album for San Francisco's Kowloon Walled City. Now taking preorders for this beast, which I hope to start shipping the week of Sept 21.
KOWLOON WALLED CITY
"Gambling On The Richter Scale" LP+CD (PMM027)
Out September 29, Now Available for Preorder
The Perpetual Motion Machine is now taking preorders for the upcoming KOWLOON WALLED CITY full length LP+CD which is due out September 29. On "Gambling on the Richter Scale," their first full-length, San Francisco's KOWLOON WALLED CITY add a touch of finesse to the grinding pummel introduced on last year’s Turk Street EP, which drew comparisons to Neurosis, The Melvins and other low-end explorers, from the ‘90s AmRep roster to the current crop of sludgecore contenders.
Limited to 500 copies, the LP is available in two color variations, clear (limited to 300) and black/silver mix (limited to 200). All copies come packaged in heavy, full color jackets and include a CD version, packaged in a seperate 2-color screen-printed chipboard sleeve.
As with the last couple PMM preorders, I'm doing a run of limited shirts to accompany preorders. The shirt design, which features an image of earthquake thrust planes, will have white ink printed on charcoal grey, ultra-comfy cotton Next Level shirts (comparable to American Apparel shirts).
Preorders will begin shipping in late September, hopefully the week of Sept 21, so folks that preorder will get them before it's in stores on Sept 29.

"One of the best contemporary acts representing The New Wave Of American Noise Rock." - MetalSucks.net

KWC preorders shipping today!
Everything for the Kowloon Walled City LP+CD is finished and ready to ship! I've been busy packing orders all weekend and will start shipping them out today. The preorder response for this release has been unbelievable and kind of overwhelming, so it will take me a couple days to get everything shipped out, but fear not, it will be worth the wait. So thanks so much to everyone that preordered this!!
For those that haven't checked it out, I encourage you to do so. This is one of the best heavy records I've heard in quite some time and a fucking solid, pissed off, noisy, pummeling listen from start to finish. We'll be putting up a free download of the album soon for the non-believers.
Stores and distros will be able to get copies next week from Revolver and Ebullition. Get in touch for direct wholesale orders and trades.
