Alex from Grave Mistake Records commented:
Compiling all of the band’s output during their brief existance, this collection contains all of the material from their 2004 Demo, Weight ofthe World 7″, Easy Green 7″, and tracks from the Generations: A Hardcore Compilation on Revelation Records.
All of the audio has been remastered by the wonderful Daniel Husayn at North London Bomb Factory, and features killer packaging which includes brand new cover art done by the one and only Spoiler, a printed inner sleeve featuring some additional reprinted original Iron Boots artwork, and a huge 24×24″ double sided Poster lyric sheet! We also pressed up two limited vinyl colors – Blue Vinyl (out of 170) and Orange Vinyl (out of 225). The vinyl comes with a Download featuring a digitally remastered version of the collection as well.
In addition to the vinyl reissue, we also reprinted two Iron Boots shirt designs, one featuring an early shirt design done by Spoiler (also used on later pressings of their Demo 7″), and a killer pocket print double-sided t-shirt as well.
The digital remaster is also available on each of the labels’ respective Bandcamp Pages for a $6 Download (streaming in full as well).
For the uninitiated, IRON BOOTS hailed from in Virginia Beach, VA and were most active from 2004-2006 before playing their final show in Richmond in 2008. With their hi-impact, fuck-your-attitude delivery and NYHC influenced songwriting (open your eyes, they sounded exactly like WARZONE, and wore that label proudly), the Boots were one of few contemporary hardcore bands that were able to take influence from classic hardcore punk and successfully make it their own. Along with bands like Down to Nothing, Bracewar, Victim and Wasted Time, Iron Boots were the crew that was key in solidifying Richmond / Virginia Beach as a relevant and vital Hardcore scene during the mid-00’s. In their short career, Iron Boots managed to churn out an impressive catalog – an eight song demo, two 7″ EPs, and two tracks for a Revelation Records compilation – all of which are featured on this release. Always remembering to keep the faith, Iron Boots took pride in maintaining a classic “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it” approach to hardcore in both songwriting and aesthetic. The end result being, as proven on this reissue, a timeless recorded and visual output that still maintains a fresh and vital feel more than a decade later.
IRON BOOTS Complete Discography LP will be out officially on October 6th, and preorders will begin shipping that week as well!
