RSD_2011_1.jpg

Record Store Day 2011 is upon us tomorrow (4/16)! We’ve got a list of Chicago record stores to visit, plus must-see in-stores taking place sporadically throughout the day. With many limited-run releases from a great list of participating artists, hopefully these independent record stores will rake in a good amount of money.

Various Artists NO PEACE/WAR 7″
Organized Crime Records have teamed up with some amazing bands to bring you the No Peace/ War 7″ compilation. No Peace/ War was conceived nearly 2 decades ago by Dwid Van Hellion of INTEGRITY. The compilation was to include some of his favorite western hardcore bands paying homage to …some of his favorite Japanese hardcore bands. Originally it was scheduled to be one of the seminal Blood Book 7″ singles. Unfortunately No Peace/ War was indefinitely shelved due to unforeseen forces. Now 17 years later the compilation will finally see the light of day. Included on No Peace/ War are exclusive tracks by INTEGRITY, GEHENNA, VVEGAS, CAPE OF BATS and ROT IN HELL each covering their favorite Japanese hardcore songs.
