1. Shikari Sound System have released a new remix, this time they’ve put their spin on Baby Godzilla's track 'The Great Hardcore Swindle'. Check it out above.

    Baby Godzilla are the first band who aren’t Enter Shikari to be releasing music on the Ambush Reality label. Read a statement from the Enter Shikari website below:

           Dear friends,

    since its inception, Ambush Reality as a label has been solely a vehicle for the release of music by Enter Shikari. but this is more out of necessity, lack of free time, and not really hearing anything we’d want to release by anyone else.
    all that changes today!
    Monday 21st July sees the release of the first ‘non-Enter Shikari’ artist by Ambush Reality.
    ladies and gentlemen, please welcome to the gang… BABY GODZILLA!
    a lot of you will be aware that these boys have shared many a stage with Enter Shikari over the past year, so its an honour to be releasing their new single; the very excellent ‘THE GREAT HARDCORE SWINDLE’.
    it comes accompanied by a SHIKARI SOUND SYSTEM REMIX too (this will be the format for all Ambush Reality releases of this nature. A: original track. AA: SSS remix. keeps it neat, eh?).

    the single is released as digital downloads from iTunes  and other digital retailers (including our own store at http://www.entershikari.com/ambushreality) plus Spotify and all them places for streaming.
    its also available as a very limited (500 copies worldwide) blue vinyl 7″ single fromhttp://www.entershikari.com/ambushreality)”

    The label, which shares its name with Fronzak’s clothing line, is an imprint label of Artery Recordings.

    The label have gone straight work and signed Florida pop-punk outfit, Old Again. Check them out here and read what Fronzak had to say about the band below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UlLH5G2l_d4

         "Old Again are here to take over the pop-punk scene. I’ve been friends with the guys for a little while now, and what drew me in to them was their passion and dedication. EVERY person at an Old Again show is there to crowd surf and sing their hearts out. Their willingness to travel across the entire country doing DIY tours reminded me of my early days in Attila when we would do the same exact thing. I had flashbacks and that’s when it hit me - Old Again are here to stay. They are here to take over. If you don’t know about them already, you will soon."
