- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0I6A-Cwfjl8 <--- Kevy's latest video (WRONG WAY/ONE WAY)
- THAT IS WHAT I'VE GOT TO REPORT
Hey, check out RVIVR's "The Beauty Between" LP page to listen to an mp3 of one of our new songs - LMD!!
You can listen to a better quality stream at http://rvivr.bandcamp.com/album/the-beauty-between.
Honestly, they both sound weird to me (swooshy swooshy). It's quite weird to spend so much time mixing and tracking a record then hear a weird steam of it, hah! Can't wait for the LP or CD! Yeah!!!
RVIVR has finished their newest full length LP and is preparing to release it online on Feb 25th at their bandcamp site - rvivr.bandcamp.com - digital pre-orders will be availlable later today.
The Beauty between will be out in physical form on Rumbletowne later in the Spring and available on YoYo Records (Berlin) in March for RVIVR's European Tour with Dogjaw... dates here: yoyorecords.de
We'll be doing vinyl pre-orders for this release by April, maybe sooner. Keep your eyes wide I guess.
That's the news!
Dear Freaky People of the World:
We've got news.
- Erica Freas "Belly" LP has an end in sight (finally)... the test press has been approved and so we'll see the records in 5-8 weeks (fingers crossed for five). We're still taking pre-orders and the CD is finished and available for mailorder.
- RVIVR!! the new full length is finished and has been sent in to get mastered. It's 44 minutes long. 14 tracks. Yow.
- In March/April 2013 RVIVR & DOGJAW will be touring with this record through much of Europe (dates here: https://www.facebook.com/events/305128402941684/ sorry for the FB link...) and a few dates on the East Coast of the USA (probably all on Long Island) Shit! There may be a DOGJAW/RVIVR split 7" on those Europe dates... we'll see...
- Speaking of DOGJAW!!!! <---- these talented fuckers just recorded three Ocean Themed Songs to be released on a split with AGATHA. (mind blown).
- Speaking of AGATHA!!!! <--- these hot shits just recorded four RIPPING TRACKS to be released on a split with DOGJAW. (ooookay).
- Here is a new RVIVR music video by KEVIN RAINSBERRY FILMS: (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=idrAIt1sIzM) It's Spider Song, a track off the new LP!!??!?!?!?!!
- That's that.
We're still waiting on the CD (mid December) and the vinyl (January 2013), both of which you can still pre-order, but FOR NOW you can listen all you want!!! ... download away!!! Finally!
That's the news.

“Belly” has 10 tracks of Erica's new & used (in RVIVR & Lightnin Round) songs on an acoustic guitar with threads of some special voices, and a little cello.
Recorded in early Spring 2012 and backburner’d until now, we’re hoping to have it out by the end of the year (fingers crossed) and pre-ordering it will help!
Mail us a check/money order made out to "Erica Freas" or hidden cash to:
Erica Freas/Rumbletowne Recs PO Box 663 Olympia WA 98507
$13/LP or $10/cd (within the U$A, email punks@rumbletowne for international orders)
or, if you’d prefer to paypal: make it an even $15/LP or $12/cd and send (with a note so we don’t get confused what you’re paying for) to firstname.lastname@example.org
Rock on and thanks for your support!
Ok, well not so many updates in truth:
- We brought records around Seattle yesterday - Sonic Boom, Singles, Porchlight, Georgetown Records... if you've been looking for convenience this may just be your window of opportunity.
- BUTTONMAKERS.NET is the jam for punk pin making supplies. They rule, this is a thank you post for their ruling.
- RVIVR is still slowly carving out the new LP. Summer happened and we all split town for travel, work, extended forays into nature, etc... BUT i'm writing from within the Control Room, Matti's doing vocal takes on OCEAN SONG and its pretty chill. Can't give an ETA but probably definitely by WINTER and we'll also do a pre-order situation so keep your eyes peeled if that's your thing.
Tomorrow, Saturday July 28th!, is the QRC Camper Band Showcase at the Capital Theater in Olympia!
The campers have been working hard since... MONDAY to create bands and perform one song on the stage. It's really special and inspiring: http://www.queerrockcamp.org/

RVIVR entered the studio today to begin their next full length release with the renowned sound engineer "THE JOESTER".
That's the news.
To clarify, New Directions Fest is a thing happening in Olympia that some RTR bands & our friends' bands are playing but we're NOT putting it on. One day there will be a RUMBLETOWNE FEST but that day has not yet come.
(tho there is a grapevine that Paul Candy's got a storm brewing for North Portland on August 19th...)
RVIVR is a scant week away from beginning to record. We are so excited! There may be 13 songs! They may be mostly all writtten by now! We may be more prepared to record than any of us has ever been and what the fuck will come of that?!?!?!
DIVERS is planning a West Coast tour in Aug/Sept. Coinciding with Northpark Awesome Fest in San Diego.
ERICA FREAS is playing a show with SPOONBOY & ONSIND on their North American Tour in Olympia on July 7th (at 1405 8th Ave SE btw Central & Boundary, 6p, $5) HOT TEARS (Molly from SONGS FOR MOMS is also playing and the show will end early enough to get to the J.O.C.K. tape release show with AGATHA & SOIL)
After a long ass wait the CHIN UP MERIWETHER "Fruition" LP covers are entirely finished and this last run is the most beautiful, finally realizing the art that they were going for from the beginning. On vellum with a layered screenprint.
SHARKPACT toured the West and made it home despite their "new" van completely eating shit and dying three days into the trip. Jeff has decided this brief exploration of vehicle ownership was enough for him and he doesn't need that headache. What a good band. They will tour again soon.
That's the news!
QRC Olympia is fundraising for their 2012 session in late JULY
Thanks to fundraisers like this one their able to offer a week long camp, staffed with unlimited good looking volunteers, safe housing and good food for SIXTY youth for FREE (so that economic background needn't be an obstacle!?!?!?!?!?!)...

Dear People of the Internet:
Bring your flesh and blood to Olympia WA USA on August 3,4,5 for
NEW DIRECTIONS FEST 2012
FROM ANGER TO ACTION
here's the lengthy write up...
you can also go here:
NEW DIRECTION FEST // AUG. 3-5, 2012 // OLYMPIA, WA
New Direction Fest 2012 will be a space for people of the worldwide hardcore and punk community to share experiences, skills, ideas, and information about community organizing and other forms of radical action. This convergence will include live bands, workshops, and speakers engaged in the practical application of the radical ideas and values of hardcore punk. Through these, we hope to inspire and to mobilize one another to form a global network of resistance and a movement for radical change, both within punk and without. Every band performing has experience with political organizing, community projects, and resisting systems of oppression and exploitation. The goal of this fest is to breathe new life into the hardcore tradition of resistance and to push our networks towards a NEW DIRECTION where we can bridge the gap between hardcore values and the application of these values through radical practice.

A frustrating fucking thing happened last night:
Someone came in through the backdoor of PUNKALL (our home in Olympia) and stole a bunch of stuff including Erica’s backpack which had the ENTIRE band fund that we’ve been saving from the past year of touring, about $2000 in cash.
So this is a stretch, but better than nothing: The back pack is small, brown (filson fabric), RELoad brand bag with straps (not a messenger bag). It had a journal (with lots of lyrics for the new record!!), yellow knock off rayban styled sunglasses, a hand sewn wallet and a bunch of other non-valuable but important things.Well, and the band fund which was both valuable AND important.
A small red backpack, a red charvel strat style guitar and a checkered backpack were also stolen.
If you’ve got any leads or want to help please email us – email@example.com
We don’t want to involve the cops, just to get our stuff back. Thanks.
This woman needs attention, intention and advocacy aimed in her direction.
Please read about her situation and know that this is NOT RARE:
Transwomen (especially Transwomen of Color!) experience some of the nastiest marginalization in our USA culture. CeCe’s fate is in the hands of an ignorant, repressive judicial system and the more attention she gets, the BETTER.
CeCe McDonald (who is a transwoman of color) is facing murder charges for her act of self-defense, with a pair of sewing scissors, against a group of white men who used racial/homophobic slurs and then physically attacked her.
This case has gotten SOME media attention, but NOT ENOUGH.
Her trial begins next week.
20 minute program about the existence of our Transgender population, Trans politics today, and what it means to live outside the binaries of ‘F’ & ‘M’ in a culture that’s not yet acknowledging gender variance:
That's right fuckers! Agatha's LP is born!
Order it now before its tooooo llllaaaattttteeee!!!!
And they are hitting the West Coast with Dogjaw...

If they are trying to get you to book them a show for their upcoming tour:
DO IT!! they're so good.
Well just when you thought we'd fallen off the face of the earth:
- RVIVR is touring US/Europe this Fall and has a kickstarter to help fund the airfare across the sea. Also, we're currently recording a two song 7" to be released on YoYo Records (yoyorecords.de) for the tour. At least go watch the movie that Kevin Rainsberry made... and there's some special incentives including colored vinyl- http://kck.st/o0bdVw
Check out the tour dates as they become solid: www.rvivr.wordpress.com
- Upcoming Releases!
Full Length LPs by Agatha & Sharkpact
We also repressed 500 more RVIVR s/t LPs, this time with jackets printed by Righteous Indignation out of Long Island (http://www.righteousindignationli.com/) which may seem boring to y'all since they're not handmade but we are SERIOUSLY excited not to labor over the Vandercook... yessssssssssss
There's also a rumor about a Lightnin Round LP of the compiled recordings from the past four years... we'll believe it when we see it
So, back from a seriously cool tour with RVIVR and trying to get RTR back in order some things have come to my attention:
Some of your orders got confused in our chaos before leaving and so this is a shout out:
IF YOU ORDERED A JOESTER SESSION RECORD (or any record) OVER A MONTH AGO YOU SHOULD HAVE IT BY NOW!!
If you're still waiting PLEASE send us an email (punks at rumbletowne.com) letting us know your situation and we'll figure it out asap. We are just not so organized over here but we TRY.
In other news:
- We DON'T have t-shirts for sale via this website, there will usually be some at shows though so that's your best bet. (And No Idea has had some RVIVR t-shirts in the past, they may still)
- We have some new records cooking
Thank you to all the amazing, intelligent, thoughtful people who put RVIVR up, booked us shows in good-feeling spaces, talked to us about real shit, challenged us and made us remember how music is a super-powerful way to connect with each other and know ourselves better. Fuck yes!
Send us letters!
So Matt & I are leaving on tour Friday and the pre-orders WILL ship before we drive our asses out of Olympia. This also means that if we haven't received yours yet... well you'll have to wait til we return on May 1st.
We are accepting last minute paypal orders if you wish:
$13 - US
$15 - Canada
$20 - UK/Australia
(elsewhere, please email and we'll try to negotiate it before we go)
you can pay us at firstname.lastname@example.org and PLEASE include all relevant order info as a note on your payment.
peace out and see you in the fuckin pit!!!!!
YO! We finally got our shirts.
Our friend Cinder at Defiance Screenprinting did a fucking pristine job on them (www.defiancescreenprinting.com). They are sweat free, non-american apparel, union made, brightly colored, soft and punk as motherfuck! Ok, so order away and email us with any questions.
RVIVR wants a Woman who:
- Likes/loves RVIVR
- Lives in or will move to Olympia
- Can play bass or guitar and/or is willing to learn how to play tight and fast
- Wants to be in a band that practices regularly and will go on several tours a year of varying length
please send an email to RVIVR@rumbletowne.com if yer interested
Three New Things on the HORIZON:
1. We have put in an order for RVIVR t-shirts.
There will be colors. There will be sizes. They will be available for order from this website.
We're starting with the tried and true Lungs design that many of you know already and we've got a new design up our sleeves as well.
As before: printed by Defiance Screenprinting on sweat-free shirts (http://defiancescreenprinting.com/)
2. Our friend Dave who runs If You Make it (http://www.ifyoumakeit.com/) just created a database that links to five labels that do free/donation downloads of their releases, including ours: http://refiltered.org/
For now it will just lead you back to this page, it's going to be rad once it's finished!
3. We decided that we're going to start accepting PayPal for orders in the U$A.
It'll take a few weeks to build the shopping cart thing that'll measure out postage etc, but it's coming and we're into it.
We still will be happier when people take the time to write a little note and order with sneaky cash.
And the argument against relying solely on credit/debit as a means for exchange still stands:
Every time any of us use our credit/debit card those companies get a slice, a percentage, a fee and we forget how to function without them. At this point we've decided that we'd rather remember that for ourselves, write it up here on the website and in interviews as often as we can AND make our records available more easily to whoever wants to order them.
Please write us with comments or questions, hey write us in a damn letter ok?
Support your local Post Office people! It's a dying resource!
peace and elbow grease, fuckers!
Well, we just cut a check for the Derailer Bicycle Collective in Denver for $717.00 which brings the total money raised for them to $975.00!! $55 of that was your paypal donations for downloading the Derailer 7" from this website. Thank you everyone for your help and support.
Hey! RVIVR's Dirty Water EP is now available for donation download! It is also streaming. Check it out!!
Coming Soon - RVIVR "joester sessions '08-'10" - collecting the Dirty Water EP, the Life Moves 7" and the Derailer 7" on one beautiful record. yeah!

Tour was killer, No Idea (noidearecords.com) will have a FEW copies of the the RVIVR "Dirty Water" EP (on YoYo Records - yoyorecords.de) soon, and we'll be looking forward to putting out the RVIVR Collection 12" by the end of the year.
Also, the Pipsqueak "Fowl Hymns" LP is in the works, long overdue and really amazing.
And we're sold out of the GLue! 7" ...so congradulations if you got that beautiful relic of a lost band.
Thank you all you people who made the tour in Europe unbelievably awesome, we can't wait to do it again.
Fuck it!! It's good to be home!! Peace!!

yo. you may have noticed the website was down for a few days there.
thanks for not hacking into our mainframe, we know little more than shit about how to manipulate our website.
so it goes.
RVIVR started a site where you can check out upcoming shows, tour dates, whatever:
so check that out if it's interesting to you.
Cool. See you in the future. x
hey happy new year.
Agatha (Seattle) just recorded their 7" with the Joester.
They're closing in on the final mix and hope to tour with it in late March.
A 4 song EP of rough, tough 90's sounding punk rock, soo good.
And we're deep into the RVIVR LP recording.
Almost done with the basic tracking and Phil Douglas from Long Island is occupying our control room making magic and drinking keystone tea. It's gonna be SICK!
Also, we've got our dear friend C-Nel on the task of a new website, so get ready for this shit to be easier and more accessible, (let alone more handsome), in the near future.
Besides all that, our mailorder is kicking, so order up!
Also, if you run a small (or any size) distro or record shop and want to order wholesale from us, we do that, too. And thanks to all you folks who keep offering up places for RVIVR to play on the East Coast.
We're really excited to get out there and are going to start booking tour really soon.
yeah! - erica
Alright, look, we just got back from tour and it was rad.
Thank you to everyone who booked us a good show and made sure we had food to eat.
Also thank you to our van, the Red Van, for running so damn well.
We've got some news:
- Mutoid World is ready to go, order away!
$12 ppd in a beautiful full-color gatefold designed by Bubz. Check out the art on the releases page.
Dang! This shit's hot!
- RVIVR's Life Moves 7" is SOLD THE FUCK OUT!!
It's actually kind of a bummer... No Idea (www.noidearecords.com) still has them if you're looking.
- Actually, all our releases are available at No Idea which can be helpful if you need to pay with a card over the internet (i.e. from outside the U.S. or if you're scared of waiting for our turnaround time and don't want a personally wrapped package direct from our living room...)
- You wanna buy a RVIVR T-Shirt? Well we got them!
We're going to put up pictures, but in the meantime...
$15 ppd - "RVIVR" screened above an image of lungs in bold white.
We've got Youth Large, Small, Large and Extra Large on sweatshop-free black t-shirts.
We'll throw in a patch for free.

2. There has been an art delay for MUTOID WORLD. So it goes: All pre-orders will be sent out at the end of November. BUT! Pre-release special spray-painted versions of MUTOID WORLD will be available on RVIVR's upcoming west coast tour.
3. Check out the Chin up Meriwether! song on the releases page.
MUTOID WORLD IS ALMOST HERE! Mutoid Men's "Mutoid World" LP will be out in early November and we are taking fucking pre-orders!!! 10 songs of crazy moog keyboards, fucked up guitar solos and robot/space madness!!
Send us 10 bucks to get yours as soon as it comes out plus a special surprise! We'll post the album art and track list soon, but for now check out the two songs on the releases page! IT WILL BLOW YOUR MIND.
Chin Up, Meriwether's full length LP - Fruition - is also available for pre-order.
