Hey everyone! Staci (editor of local zine DisturbancE) here to update the masses on what’s going on in DE punk in the Impetus X DisturbancE Scene Report. If you’ve got any thoughts, questions, or qualms, please reach out to me firstname.lastname@example.org OR my snazzy new email@example.com! Exciting!
Impetus Records has been chugging along steadily these past few months. In the last Scene Report, we welcomed sweet Olivia to Impetus (firstname.lastname@example.org), and we had just released the Kobika/Think Machine Split. Since then, we’ve done quite a bit!
First of all, the office at Impetus House has gained some sick shelves. Come through to admire them! We're at 13 Delaware Ave in Claymont, DE, off Philly Pike.
Merger released their highly anticipated EP on September 27th. It’s probably my favorite release to date, as well as the first Impetus 12”! You can find it in local record stores or available on the site. It’s also on most streaming services.
Later this year, keep an eye out for Think Machine’s first full-length release on Impetus.
Lastly, Diego decided to change up the website a bit and straight up taught himself how to code over the summer in order to do so. He coded the whole damn thing! It looks great! Give him some accolades!
While I’m here - if you ever want to submit a show review, album review, interview, or thought piece to DisturbancE, we have revolving and monthly submissions. Please reach out. We encourage ads from other independent labels! Hope to see you at a gig!
