LTL Update – Jan. 31st

Hey everyone, Dan here, and this is the part of the update where I like to ramble on about nothing for a few seconds until I feel like starting the actual update. Hardcore is tight though so here is what is happening.

Dogchains – Give / Take 7″First of all, Dogchains has joined the LTL crew. Dogchains is from Germany and they play a sick style of hardcore that reminds me a lot of Justice. I have teamed up with Straight & Alert Records and Balance Records to have a 3-way…….RELEASE! Yeah you thought it was going to get dirty there didn’t you? Bunch of perverts. Anyways, the LTL pre-orders will drop Friday morning around 9AM. Got a cool package deal going on and a few test presses up for grabs so make sure you are up in time! Listen to SUN off the 7″ here. It makes me want to rock the hell out. Yeah I said rock.

Safe and Sound – The Tides 7″
The northwest dudes have just finished writing for their debut 7″ “THE TIDES”. They will be hitting the studio this February and then that shit is going to be dropping. They have a track on a sweet React Records compilation called Winds Of Change. Make sure to pick that up because the comp. is awesome and React is the coolest label around. Catch them playing Rainfest this year and hitting the west coast and other cool areas. Make sure to follow them on facebook here to keep up with them!

??? 7″
Yeah I have something cool in the works for this year. If things go according to plan we will have another cool release lined up for Summer.

New LTL shirts for a new year
Got some SWEET new record label shirts for the new year. Gray w/ blue print and Maroon w/ white print. Front and back on ALstyle tees aka that baller shit. Shout outs to Chris Mollet for the sweet design work. Check em out HERE

Losin’ It – No Apology LP
This LP is down to the last of it’s pressing. Will there be a second press? Most likely. When? I don’t know yet but pick up a copy from the first press in the online store before they run out!

LTL Tumblr & Twitter

LTL Trade Game / Distro
Shout outs to Revelation Records, React Records, Youngblood Records, Bridge Nine Records, Lost Time Records, Mind Rot Records for all the awesome trades. It’s cool to see bigger labels carrying the LTL goods. I’m just pumped and I want you to know I’m pumped. :’) If you are trying to carry LTL and don’t want to buy wholesale, hit me up and maybe we can work out a trade! lifetoliverecords@yahoo.com

FYA Fest
Shout outs to everyone that picked up some merch from the LTL table during FYA Fest. It was the first time LTL set up at a sweet hardcore first and it was an awesome time. It was great meeting new people and hope to do it again next year!

Closing Statement

LTL Update Nov.

YO YO YO Sorry I’ve been slacking on this site lately but if you order anything then you know what is going on through our mini zines that go out in only orders. Enough sass though, here is what the hell is going on!!!!!

Safe and Sound – Northwest Straight Edge
Newest members to the LTL crew. They are currently on tour doing the damn thing and we have a cool ten yard fight rip tee in the LTL store. Only a few made so scoop one while you can here! When they get back they are going to record their debut 7″. It isn’t named yet but I can assure you this record will be a banger.

Violence To Fade – Tug Of War 7″
Tug Of WAR. The debut 7″ from Violence To Fade. The test presses have been approved and now we wait for the real deal to arrive. I wish I was better with dates but I never receive a for sure answer when dealing with these pressing companies so you will have to just bare with these little lame updates! If you haven’t pre-ordered the record, DO IT NOW! If not then at least give it a listen because it’s a great record!

LTL Hoodies For The FIRST Time EVER
We’ve done shirts, beanies, and even crewnecks but now hoodies are checked off the list. Only a limited run of navy blue hoodies with a sweet front and back print. Thanks to Lennon from Losin’ It for the design work. Check the hoodies out here.

Life To Live on INSTAGRAM
Finally joined the IG game so follow for nice ass photos that make our merch and what not look a lot cooler than it actually is. On the really cool side, I post random sales and giveaways on their so keep up and you can get some cool stuff randomly! The IG is @lifetoliverecords and the hashtag is #lifetoliverecords

LTL IS GROWING
Pick up LTL releases at these cool places now: RevHQ, Deathwish Inc., React! Records, Youngblood Records, Trip Machine Labs, Mind Rot Records, Vinyl Conflict. If you are reading this and want to trade I am usually down (vinyl / tapes only!) as long as you live in the US. Unfortunately trades with other countries has become too expensive because of the stupid shipping rates.

Closing Statement
Speak your mind. Voice your opinion. Don’t do shit because everyone else is doing it. Be original and think for yourself. Some simple positive vibes to spread out.

Violence To Fade & Safe and Sound Join LTL!!!

It’s been a busy couple of months so I apologize for not updating as much. Like LTL on facebook and also sign up for the mailing list to stay in the loop a little more. Violence To Fade (ex ALERT) and Safe and Sound (NWHC) have both joined the crew. Both bands play different youth crew styles of hardcore. Both bands are fucking awesome and you will NOT be disappointed. Check out both bands on their facebook pages!

ALSO, the latest in LTL is the new distro. I decided it’d be awesome to expand the distro section of LTL and even put it in its very own section. TONS of new 7″ & 12″ records. Make sure to check it out and if you live outside the US, please order 2 or more items. Shipping costs are screwing us hard over here in the US so this is the only way to make things work. Hop you can understand.
