Black Friday Week Sale & A Bit Of News

Hey there, long time no talk.  We apologize for the lack of regular updates, but as it turns out when you're an old label like us that doesn't crank out much in the way of new releases, there's not a lot of updating to do.  Rest assured that we are still here, filling orders for back catalog and spending money that could go into pressing records on buying toys to take pictures of on Instagram...

To start, in celebration of the smell of commerce in the morning (and to make some extra room at PopKid HQ for some incoming boxes that we'll talk about in a minute) we're having a big Black Friday sale all week long.  Though probably not the most punk rock thing in the world, I've (Tim) always loved Black Friday.  There's something about the chaos, the firing up of Christmas music and the general proximity to my birthday that's always been fun.  So we're going to celebrate it this year as well.

Until Sunday 11/29/2015 ALL regular priced PopKid back catalog records are HALF PRICE.  We're talking $2 7"s and $4.50 CDs.  Shipping is still the standard flat $4 for however much you buy (shipped int he US) and we implore you: GET THIS STUFF OUT OF HERE.

We need to make room for 2016 and the 100% going forward, no BS, no more delays, launch of a new PopKid record.  We've said it's coming before, but honestly, it's actually happening this time.  It's a co-release with some other wonderful labels.  It's a full length LP on vinyl by one of my absolute favorite current bands.  It's already recorded, mixed and mastered.  The test pressings are done and this should be fired up at the pressing plant very soon.  Now with the delays pressing plant's have these days, it's still going to be a few more months, but mark my words and watch this space.

Lastly, thanks to whoever made this Black Friday logo I found online.  I thought of the idea and then searched to see if anyone else had already made it.  Sure enough, there it was.  If it's yours and you want credit or demand we remove it just let me know at timpopkid[at]gmail[dot]com.

More updates coming soon!

Unreleased Playground Album & PopKid's Rise From The Ashes

Welcome to 2015 everyone.  It has been an incredibly long time since we've updated this poor little website, but rest assured we are still here, filling orders for back catalog records and planning world domination.

First up is that our friends from Davis, CA have unleashed their long lost full length album into the world.  You may remember Playground from PKD001, the If You Were Me 7".  It's the record that started it all for PopKid.  Playground was also meant to be one of the first bands to release a full length for PopKid in 1996.  No Angel was recorded and ready to go, but the band split and the record just disappeared.

It's a crime, because this album is so completely phenomenal.  If you are even remotely into Jawbreaker influenced melodic punk rock, this record is essential.  The sounds of the 90's are experiencing something of a renaissance these days, but No Angel isn't a throw back.  It's an authentic piece of 1996 finally available to hear.

Playground has put this up on Bandcamp as a pay what you want download.  We strongly urge you to check it out.  In a perfect world, we would love to have this released on vinyl as well.  If the demand is there or if any other labels want to step up and co-release it, maybe that's something that can happen.

In other, slightly more cryptic news, unless something changes PopKid records will officially be back this year.  We are planning to release a full length vinyl record from one of our very favorite current bands.  It's a co-release with some other tremendous record labels and we cannot wait to tell you more about it.  PopKid records is 21 years old in 2015.  We feel old, but we're getting back in the game!
