The wait is over! After 20 years Humble Beginnings "Overanalyzing the Manifestations of Unconscious” has finally made its way onto all of your favorite digital retailers. What are you waiting for?! Go take a trip down memory lane and listen to it on repeat.
Today’s the day! Pre-order your copy of Lanemayer’s “Stories for the Big Screen” in our webstore. It’s super limited (only 250 were made) and it looks pretty damn cool too (pressed on green vinyl w/ a custom etching on the b side). Every order comes with a digital download of the EP.

p.p.s. keep a look out for the Humble Beginnings EP which will be released next Friday July 13th for the first time ever on Apple Music, Spotify + all of your other favorite digital retailers!
🚨ANNOUNCEMENT ALERT🚨 - Now that we have your attention, we’re happy to announce that we’re re-releasing the Humble Beginnings "Overanalyzing the Manifestations of Unconscious” EP on July 13th and Lane Meyer's “Stories for the Big Screen” on July 20th. If you lived through late 90s pop-punk (and grew up in the north east), you might be familiar with these bands.
If not, it’s time to learn! Humble Beginnings was where Gabe from Midtown/Cobra Starship got his start and Lanemeyer was one of Brian Fallon’s [The Gaslight Anthem] first bands.
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE (there always is)...
We’re also releasing an exclusive 20th anniversary 12” vinyl of Lanemeyer's Stories for the Big Screen. The pre-order goes live Monday July 9th in the I Surrender Records webstore ( isurrenderrecords.merchdirect.com ), and is limited to 250 green vinyl. Side A will include all 7 songs and Side B has a custom etching with the lyrics “God I Miss You, God I Miss This Place” on it.
Honestly, we’re just happy the world will finally be able to enjoy two of our favorite releases for the first time ever digitally.
p.s. if you live near Teaneck, NJ, catch both bands live for the first time in a long time on July 21st at Debonair Music Hall. It’s one reunion show you won’t want to miss!
Only a few of these white w/ mustard splatter bad boys left in our webstore. Get one before it’s gone forever.
If you’re lucky enough, you can find the pink version exclusively at record stores nationwide. All proceeds go to benefit Gilda's Club NYC. The charity helps cancer patients and their families learn how to live with a cancer diagnosis – through support groups, educational lectures, and classes.
The moment you've all been waiting for is finally here. The Rise Or Die Trying 10 year anniversary 12” vinyl is available for preorder through our webstore (out September 8th). Only 500 copies of this color (white w/ grimace purple splatter) have been pressed.
Don't forget, each copy comes with a 7" filled with RODT b-sides and fun.
Get one or ten before it's gone for-ev-er.
To celebrate the 10 year anniversary of Rise Or Die Trying we thought it would be fun to team up! team up! with the band again (yes, we just went there). Later this year (September 8th to be exact), we will be re-releasing the band's debut album both digitally and on vinyl. It has a brand new album cover, vinyl comes with all new artwork. and we're adding 4 b-sides to the release (vinyl comes w/ an extra b-sides 7"). We will be putting up 500 copies of the white w/ grimace purple splatter 12" variant in our webstore for pre-order on July 11th. This is the only place where this color will be available.

Back in 2007 we signed and released Four Year Strong's album Rise Or Die Trying. Somehow 10 years have passed (how is that even possible?!), and the band's celebrating by hitting the road and playing the album in full all over the world. Needless to say we're stoked!
Today, the U.S. dates have been announced. These are small venues, so run, don't walk to pick up tickets because these will go fast. They go on sale this Friday, 1/13, at noon local time.
Start the takeover (again)!

SURPRISE! We signed someone new to I Surrender Records. His name is Lincoln, he's from Cincinnati, Ohio and he fucking rules! We were first introduced to Lincoln when our friend Sam Means (previously of The Format) tweeted a YouTube link of Lincoln covering one of his songs. After watching all the other original + cover videos on his channel, we knew we wanted him as part of the family, the rest is history.
His debut EP "A Constant State of Ohio" (produced by Brett "The Ratt" Romnes (I Am the Avalanche)) comes out on January 27th. You can listen to the first song "Smokey Eyes" right now on Consequence of Sound.
The song will officially be up everywhere on December 9th, along with the EP pre-order. Vinyl will be available for pre-order on that day through our webstore (limited to 538 baby blue).
If you live near Newport, Kentucky, go see him live tonight opening up for Citizen and tell him we say hi!
If you don't live near Newport, Kentucky, go say hi to him here:
We're almost sold out of the red pressing of Valencia's This Could Be A Possibility in our webstore (4 copies left!), so we decided to make the second random blend pressing available. Go get your hands on a copy.
You can still find some of the red copies out in the wild, or at one of the upcoming Valencia shows next month!
Guess who's back, back again...
VALENCIA'S BACK!! TELL YOUR FRIENDS!
After 5 long years of being away, the guys will reunite for two special shows this December to support the vinyl release of This Could Be A Possibility. Wait what?! That's right, we're releasing the band's debut album on vinyl for the first time ever (limited to 1,000 red vinyl).
There are a few ways to get your hands on a copy.
1. Buy pre-sale tickets to one of the shows and upgrade to the vinyl bundle.
3. Grab one from the guys at the merch table the night of the shows.
Can't wait to see you and the band in December!
