New PopKid Release - Custody - Blistered Soul 7"

We really couldn't be happier to welcome Custody to the PopKid family.  Here at PopKid we've made it our mission to hunt down the finest bands from all over the globe so that you, the listener, don't have to.  Next up on the PopKid world tour is Custody, hailing from Finland.  PopKid has a bit of a history with that part of Europe and long time listeners will probably hear some similarities in the guitar work of Custody that may remind you of PopKid alumni and Swedish powerhouse Starmarket.

Combine those guitar dynamics with the kind of hooks that would make Samiam blush and you might start to get an idea of what Custody are all about.  But don't take our word for it.  Head over to our Bandcamp page, or just click on the player below and check out these two songs.  We didn't plan on releasing this Custody 7", but when we heard these songs, they were so great that not releasing them would have been criminal.  The 7" was mastered by Mass Giorgini at Sonic Iguana, you you probably can get an idea of how great this sounds.  If not, give it a whirl:

The 7" is available on 3 different colors of vinyl for $6 each:

Solid Yellow 
(Limited to 101 Copies)
Green/Blue Marble 
(Limited to 103 Copies)
Reddish Magenta Marble 
(Limited to 103 Copies)

We also have a few limited packs of all 3 colors for the collectors out there.  You get 3 copies of the 7", one on each color of vinyl at a slightly discounted cost, plus you get a Custody Koozie (Kooztody?) if you order this pack for $16.50.

As a special "hey let's get your money's worth out of the postage costs" deal, you can also buy any PopKid Records back catalog 7" for $1 as an add on if you pick up the new Custody record.  Help us clear out some space and raise some money for more new records.

Purchase the record from our webstore here:

Stream both songs and buy the digital version on our Bandcamp page here:

PopKid is the lucky label releasing this record in North America.  If you are from another land, there may be a label close by that is co-releasing this great 7" with us:

Available in North America from PopKid Records 
Available in the UK from Different Kitchen Records 
Available in the Netherlands from Shield Recordings 
Available in Germany from Keep it a Secret Records 
Available in Japan from Waterslide Records

I would be remiss if I didn't mention we still have copies of the new Chestnut Road LP for sale.  If you haven't picked that up yet (and if you like bands like Leatherface, Broccoli, Hooton 3 Car or Jawbreaker), now would be a great time to pick up a copy of that as well.  Again, save those postage costs!
