5-Year Anniversary Compilation and Zine

I know we’ve been a little quiet over here lately. We still have a few interviews to finish up for our Popfest Previews series and another EP release in the works for early next year, but we’ve also been working on something a bit bigger. Something we’re now ready to reveal to you.

February Records turned 5 this year and, to celebrate, we are releasing a CD compilation featuring 14 bands spanning the length of our catalog. Most of the songs have never been released before and are exclusive to this comp. We wanted to make this project special. I think we have.

The CD will feature bands from our current roster, including Finnmark, The Swapsies, The Halamays, Cozy Catastrophes, Ry Smith, and The Pretty Greens. However, we wanted this compilation to celebrate everything the label has accomplished over the years, so we reached out to bands we have worked with in the past, such as Lunchbox, Onward Chariots, Ghost of Chance, Brilliant at Breakfast, Summer Library, The Month of June, and Secret Charisma. There is even a track from NYC’s Boy Genius who has played more than a few gigs that February put on in the early years though they never officially released on the label.

In addition to the compilation, we’ve decided to produce the first physical edition of our zine, …March, April, & May. The zine will include interviews with each of the bands represented on the compilation plus much more.

Though a physical release date has yet to be set, we are aiming to have everything printed, pressed, stamped, and sewn together by the middle of December. We’ll be updating you of our progress along the way because, let’s face it, this is the first time we’ve done anything like this and we’re excited to share it all with you.
