-As of now, three Chisel Records releases are at the pressing plant and they will be ready between June and August.
-We ran into a bit of delay on the Awkward Age record and unfortunately they will not be ready until August. (Preorder has obviously been put on hold for awhile)
-This Friday you will receive some information on and hear something off of the release that will be done as early as June!
-The next three releases are from Warm Needles, Awkward Age and You Vandal. You should look these bands up and check out their music. I’m stoked so much on each and every one of them and can’t wait to see and hear the finished products.
-May 11th there will be a pretty rad update on the You Vandal record. Maybe you’ll hear a new song from it??
We are super proud to let you know (if you didn’t already) that Chisel Records will be releasing the ridiculously great album “We Could be Anywhere” by Awkward Age on vinyl this Spring.
This album has been available digitally for a bit now but we can not wait to get hear these songs on vinyl. We’ll come up with something special and exclusive for the vinyl edition and we’ll have more details in the weeks ahead.
Great records are those that your favourite song on it constantly changes. This is definitely the case with “We Could be Anywhere”. Right now that is “Fire Escape” for me.
Take a listen and throw these dudes some dough for their hard work.
They are also featured on the most recent Music She Blogged digital compilation that is 100% free and features tons of great music.
Three(3) names will be drawn!
First of all, thanks to everyone that has preordered a copy of the Fat Heaven EP! You have great taste in music and all of you are entered to win a super limited (/15) test pressing of the record.
As of now, things look to be on schedule or slightly behind schedule. Test pressings have been approved a couple weeks back, so we should be expecting actual records in about two more weeks.
The digital version will be available on the 24th and if you ordered the physical 7″, a digital download code will be emailed to you on the 24th.
If you want a chance to win a test pressing of the record, preorder the record before the 24th! One lucky preorderer will be selected at random.

I’ll throw in a free record with every single order. If it’s a big order, I’ll make sure it’s something really rad.
Thank you to everyone that made 2014 a great year. That includes anyone that has ever told someone about Chisel, shopped here, Edmonton, Caffiends and Fat Heaven and all of the the other cool labels that have helped me get through 4 successful years in business! I have some cool stuff up my sleeve for 2015 and can’t wait to share those things with you. I can let you know about a few things though.
Here is what’s in store so far for early/mid 2015:
-Fat Heaven – s/t – 7″ will be released on February 23
-New band announcement in the next couple of weeks
-Mid to late 2015 we will celebrate 5 years in business and I’m going to plan a sweet show with rad bands and friends.
Andrew’s Favourite Records of 2014
2014 was a tough year for some personal reasons and these records helped me deal with a lot of shit. The number one slot goes to a record that I put out. I debated leaving off Chisel releases but I just like that record too damn much. It’s incredibly sad but also incredibly relatable.
1. Edmonton – Walk It Off
2. Restorations – LP3
3. Cayetana – Nervous Like Me
4. Dikembe – Mediumship
5. Cory Branan – The No-Hit Wonder
6. Single Mothers – Negative Qualities
7. Andrew Jackson Jihad – Christmas Island
8. Braid – No Coast
9. Joyce Manor – Never Hungover Again
10. Kittyhawk – Hello, Again
-As of now, the masters have been sent to the pressing plant along with the art for the jackets.
-On Monday, you’ll be able to check out the cover art for this amazing EP. The whole package is going to look really nice and we will have 3 colours of vinyl to choose from. (Well worth the $6.66 (CAD) price tag)
-Hopefully By Xmas, you’ll be able to preorder a song (“Night of the Dead” ) ahead of time and by Jan 13 it will be available for download/stream just about everywhere!
-We’ll have a firm release date real soon! Most likely late February.
-Check out more details about this release by downloading the ONESHEET below!
