Casting Curses Join The Panic Roster
August 6th, 2010
We're psyched to announce we'll be releasing the newest EP from upstate NY's
Casting Curses, Cold All Over Again.
Established in 2007, Casting Curses initially set out to spread their brand of heavy
meets melodic Upstate New York hardcore while attending school together. The release of
the Get Center and Heartificial EP's led to East Coast Tours and even touring north of the border.
In early 2010 the remaining core of Casting Curses had graduated and gone their separate ways,
mentally weathered from a revolving door of membership.
A six month rebuilding period has brought Casting Curses to their current status; A long distance
relationship in band form. Casting Curses new EP Cold All Over Again is the culmination of years
of progress made possible by years of friendship. Bringing various elements to the table, Cold All
Over Again displays uniquely crafted songwriting that brings to mind 90's hardcore bands like BURN
and 108. Recorded during a state of emergency this winter, it's not only the band's finest work to
date, but it marks the addition of drummer Mikey Merante formerly of Attitude and Outbreak and a
whole new lease on Casting Curses.
Visit Casting Curses Myspace to hear the first track from Cold All Over Again entitled American Ignorance.
Make Do And Mend / Touche Amore 7" Preorders Are Up
August 5th, 2010
We are finally taking preorders for the new split 7" by two of todays best bands, Make Do And Mend
and Touche Amore.
This split includes two songs by each band and art work by Nick Steinhardt. All four songs featured on this 7"
will blow you away. If you've loved everything these bands have done up to this point, you will be head over heels
after this 7" drops on your turntable.
We've got a couple different packages available for the 7" and we've also got copies left over from Sound & Fury.
6131 Records are also taking preorders and have their own preorder packages, sorry we split them up like this, think
of it as a scavanger hunt.

Run with the Hunted Are Official
June 29th, 2010
Panic Records is proud and excited to announce that Run with the Hunted have become a part of the family.
With the heaviness and technicality of bands like Indecision and Turmoil intermixed with strong noisy flourishes akin to Botch
and Catharsis. Lyrically, the band explores political and personal subject matter in equal parts but with the same introspective
angle and emotional vulnerability Run with the Hunted have become known for.
Run with the Hunted are currently in the studio tracking their debut full length with Cory Spotts at Blue Light Audio Media
and will be their first release for Panic Records. Their debut LP is due out this Fall and will serve as a follow up to 2009's
"Destroy All Calendars" released via Glory Kid Records.
I've been lucky enough to become close friends with Drew, JP, Ian, Jason and Matt over the years and now to release a record by one of my
favorite current hardcore bands, it's an honor.

New Website, New Webstore
April 29th, 2010
About two weeks ago our webstore
completely died, DEAD! This left us to scramble to rebuild, code and stock up a new
Headache isn't close to describing the ordeal. We weren't able to transfer over the customer information,
so if you're trying to log into your account...it's not gonna happen. The database was wiped out and all
customer information has been lost.
Good news about the old
dying is that it made it necessary to get a new store up and running quick. We've been wanting to get a
going for awhile, but there's just never enough time in the day, which means we had to make more time.
Yea, we invented more time, we're keeping that recipe a secret though. Check out our NEW
and get a NEW account.
We've also been in the process of getting a new website up and running. The new site is going to
be monstrous! It's going to be everything you'd want in a label website and MORE. But until that
time comes, we decided that we did need something new in place asap. We redesigned and rebuilt a
new website that we hope will be a little easier to navigate than the old one. We hope that it will
be able to keep you informed of the Panic bands and the label itself. This is just a temporary site
until we get the MONSTER site up and running in a couple months. We're still working on the site and
adding things daily (pressing info, media, etc). Check it out and let us know what you think. To
celebrate, we're streaming every single release in their entirety from our catalog.

myspace and check it out. Add them up,
tell them how you like it.
We've put up the preorders for the new 7" and have a couple different package options, as
we do with all our preorders. There's even a chance to get a test press of It's Okay Or Even
Worse. Hit up our NEW webstore and pick
it up. www.panicrecords.net/estore
Late Nite Wars are getting ready to hit the road with friends Maker for a US Tour. There's a couple
holes in their tour that they'd like to fill, if you can help them out, hit them up at
firstname.lastname@example.org and let them know. They're good dudes,
they'll play your bathroom, just let the boys play.

April 29th, 2010
