FLESH WORLD - Just To Tear Me Down 7" (LUNGS-068)
 The first installment in the 3rd series of ILR 2 song singles. This new series sees blank labels, color specific to the band (light blue in FW's case), that will be hand stamped and a standardized j-card sleeve that will also be hand stamped and numbered. All singles in this series will be strictly limited to 314 copies.
 More of that dreamy yet jagged pop sensation that you've come to know from FLESH WORLD. The A side is from the album and the B is an exclusive remix done by none other than that Canadian audio shaman Don Pyle.
 This is a booster slab for the upcoming "The Wild Animals In My Life" LP due out in June on this fine imprint. Art by Jess Scott ("she's very good").



SCUMRAID - Rip Up 7" w/download (LUNGS-066)
 Completely raging crasher style punk music from Seoul, South Korea. Unorthodox song structures and virtually note free noise thrash with dual, over-the-top aggro vocals. The guitarist tells us he doesn't even listen to punk (only blues). WTF?! Unbelievable. Seeing is believing and what we saw was fucking fantastic.
 700 copies on an etched black disc housed in a quality glued pocket sleeve with a collage crust insert.

All of this good stuff is available in our shop located at ironlungrecords.bigcartel.com

Thank you and good day.
Jensen

FLESH WORLD puts up "Poolside Boys" and some show dates.

Flesh World Share "Poolside Boys"
New Album 'The Wild Animals In My Life'
Out June 2nd on Iron Lung Records
Live Dates Announced! NYC, Seattle, SF + More

 Flesh World hit us with a new, infectious tune "Poolside Boys" from their upcoming album, The Wild Animals In My Life out via Iron Lung Records on June 2nd.

The song debuted over at Noisey today who've called it "a noisy, ethereal, if not subliminally floral track." Flesh World have also announced their first set of live dates in support of the album - full list below and stay tuned for more. Flesh World began with Scott Moore (Limp Wrist) and Jess Scott (Brilliant Colors), in a microscopic lofted-bedroom in San Francisco's Panhandle district. Scott and Jess merged their respective musical histories of hardcore and pop sort of on accident. Actually without any mention of their previous bands, they bonded over the films of Kenneth Anger, the guitar work of Lou Reed and William Reid, the writing of Jean Genet, and the shirtless figures of David Hockney paintings. The pair slowly built songs in between hanging out at drag bars and punk shows, watching SF decay into some sort of inverted Detroit, isolated wealth which sent a lot of young artists running in the last couple of years.

Flesh World is sort of what's left of that, where the only places to have fun are still leather bars, house music clubs, basement punk shows. After the music and vision of Scott and Jess began to coagulate they brought in Diane Anastasio who also drummed in Brilliant Colors. At first Diane could only fit two pieces into the tiny bedroom in which Flesh World's real, basic and primitive sound developed.

Much of production, engineering, percussion and synth saw collaboration with Toronto photographer/legend, Don Pyle (Iggy Pop, Peaches). Pyle contributed enthusiastic efforts to The Wild Animals In My Life and the band considers this early member of first wave Toronto punk, electronic music, etc. to be a component to the sound of Flesh World overall.
