You can finally order the new Junior Battles/ Bong Mountain split cassette from us! Only 75 of these suckers were made so hurry up, they won’t last long! Bong Mountain just wrapped up a Canadian and east coast tour but will be playing in Flint this weekend at Vehicle City Fest alongside The Plurals, Frank and Earnest, The Hunky Newcomers, City Mouse and a bunch of other cool artists including Sean Bonnette, Worship This!, Signals Midwest and oh so many more.
Junior Battles are, as always, sweet, kind, perfect gentlemen. Now here’s a picture of Tommy Plural’s dog with Sparty!

GTG Records is very excited to be releasing the brand new cassette split from our good friends: Grand Rapids’ Bong Mountain and Toronto’s Junior Battles! Bong Mountain has been tearing it up across the Midwest over the last year and a half with their brand of gruff, jagged pop punk. You may remember them from the GTG showcase at Mac’s Bar in February, and since then, they’ve continued to build momentum and are building a ton of buzz. Junior Battles formed in 2007 and has been peddling a solid, unique brand of cynical pop culture-laden indie rock/punk. We met these guys in 2009 when they played a huge, raucous show at GTG House and it feels good to be able to work with them again.
The cassettes are hot off the press and will be available for the first time TONIGHT at BIKE TUFF // BONG MOUNTAIN // LITTLE AMERICAN CHAMP // WORN SPIRIT in Lansing (and on the web shortly after), and both bands will be playing Pouzza FEST in Montreal this weekend. We couldn’t be more excited to help bring these four new songs to life. GTG088!
