We're really excited to announce that we will be working with Brooklyn's Nude Beach on their next album, which will be out in the fall. We have been friends and fans of Nude Beach since the beginning and it seemed like it was only a matter of time before we would start working together as they seem to always be playing with our bands and Ryan Naideau, the band's drummer, has already played on numerous Don Giovanni releases in his former band Dustheads.
Keep checking back for more information on the record, and in the meantime you can catch the band on tour:
4/23 Columbus, OH - Kobo w/ Tweens
4/24 Memphis, TN - Murphy's
4/26 Austin, TX - Mohawk Outside*^

"How Do You Like What You Have." - Artist book by Lauren Denitzio out April 26th
We're really excited to announce that we are going to be releasing a collection of artwork by Lauren Denitzio entitled How Do You Like What You Have. The 40-page booklet is professionally printed on high quality paper.
People familiar with Don Giovanni Records are probably already familiar with both Lauren Denitzio and their artwork. In addition to playing guitar and singing in The Measure (SA) and Worriers, Lauren also did all of the artwork for those bands and a number of other bands on and off Don Giovanni.
The first printing of the booklets will include a signed and numbered edition limited to 75 for mail order only, as well as a non-signed and numbered edition that will be available through Lauren at Worriers shows and our website.
Pre-orders for both editions will go up Friday on our website.
In addition, Lauren will first have copies available at Brooklyn Zine Fest at the For The Birds table on April 26th, and again the following night April 27th at a release party for the book with performances by Shellshag, Chumped, and Worriers.

Crow Bait - Sliding Through The Halls Of Fate CD/LP out May 20th!
We're really excited to announce that we will be helping Crow Bait with their debut album, Sliding Through The Halls Of Fate. The record will be out May 20th and is up for pre-order now! There are also 200 copies on clear vinyl for early pre-orders.
Crow Bait is a New York area band that you have seen play in other bands. Vets of the Long Island DIY scene, Chris (Sister Kisser, American Hellfire Club), Mike (Iron Chic, Jonesin', Wax Phantom), and Sal (Sister Kisser, Halfway to Hell Club) formed Crow Bait in 2011 with the intention of making music a little different from their past bands, while trying to create something that harkened back to the music they grew up on. After a few 7” releases, countless shows around Long Island and New York, and two trips out to California, Crow Bait set forth on recording their debut full-length. Taking time in the studio to experiment with sounds and vocal melodies, Crow Bait aimed to create a set of songs that was both nuanced and organic. The result is Sliding Through The Halls of Fate, a record that varies from moment to moment, churning up all of their sounds and influences into a cohesive statement.Listen to the song 83 from the record here:

Priests - Bodies and Control and Money and Power out 6/3
We're really excited to announce that Priests new record, Bodies and Control and Money and Power comes out June 3rd.
Priests are the sort of band that is unafraid to look you right in the eye and beg answers to big questions. In early 2012, Priests began playing frantic post-punk, full of tempered tension and thoughtful rage and relentless energy that would come from living in the microcosm of institutional oppression that is DC. Their music conveys a sense of unmatched urgency in their smart, politically charged, noisy songs.
You'd think it would be hard to capture Priests' intensity on a slab of vinyl, but all the dark, aggressive sounds and kinetic energy their known for live come across on Bodies and Control and Money and Power. From the paranoid truths of "And Breeding" to the ripping "Modern Love No Weapon" to the creepy goth feel of "Doctor," it's Priests at their best. Essential. Recorded at Inner Ear Studio with Hugh McElroy and Kevin Erickson, and by Kyle ‘Slick’ Johnson at Fancy Time Studio.Bodies and Control and Money and Power is out June 3rd, 2014. Pre-orders will start soon.
