New Release - Chestnut Road - LPII - Orange Vinyl - Out Now!

It has been 12 years since there was a new release on PopKid Records.  There were times where it felt like we may never have another new record out.  We're both in a very different place than we were 12 years ago.  However, sometimes a record comes along that is just so good, it's impossible to sit on th sidelines and not do what you can to tell everyone you know about it.

This is Chestnut Road's 2nd album.  It's self titled like their debut, but we'll call it LPII just to keep things clear.  The first Chestnut Road album has been one of our favorite albums of the past few years here at PopKid HQ.  This is a band playing the sort of Leatherface/Broccoli/Hooton 3 Car style of melodic punk rock that we love.  Even though the band is from France there is a strong influence of the mid 1990's UK punk scene.  One could make an argument that was the best punk scene.  Tim makes that argument often actually.

LPII is a split release with 2 other fantastic record labels; Brassneck Records for Europe and Snuffy Smiles Records for Japan. If you're in North America, you're on the right website as that will be PopKid's domain.  The first pressing is limited to 428 copies on opaque orange vinyl.  It also comes with an 8 page lyric booklet.  And of course it comes with a download code for MP3s of the full album, because we're not savages here, are we?  All of this for $12 plus shipping.

If you aren't into the clutter of collecting vinyl, you can also purchase MP3s only from the PopKid Records Bandcamp page.  This will only set you back $7, but really, can you put a price on fantastic rock and roll?

Thanks for reading and we hope you enjoy the record just as much as we do.
