Out Jan 26th: SECT MARK, SCUMRAID & INTENSIVE CARE - pre-orders available now

2017 was a good year for the label. We had our 10 year anniversary extravaganza, moved to a bigger office and had 22 new releases. Not bad. Rather than dwell we offer these new things to be previewed or pre-ordered.

We have a stack of amazing releases lined up for 2018 already. We can't say much about what they are just yet but we look forward to unleashing them. 

Tuesday, November 21, 2017

We started a mailing list

You can sign up here if you want to know about the missing quality in life. We will only send notices of new releases as they come out. No spam. No nonsense.

NASTI - Big Achievements LP round 2

Out today on ILR: ACRYLICS - Structure 7" & RAKTA - Oculto Pelos Seres 7"

ACRYLICS - Structure 7" (LUNGS-107) 
The newest offering from Santa Rosa's finest art bangers. They've added so much to their already incredible sound with this single and it will act as just a taste of what's to come on the LP in 2018. "Structure" is a bit more on the pogo side complimented nicely with sharp echo stabs and a ruinous atmosphere. "Gluttony" brings us back to that toss-and-turn-in-a-dark-alley kind of crunchy freak junk that the teens mangle themselves to. Our favorite blend of ugly and appealing. 
A limited release for unlimited punks. 

RAKTA - Oculto Pelos Seres 7" w/ download (LUNGS-080) 
Howling winds over the barren sands sting your eyes just enough to make you question wether or not you did actually see what you think you saw. A shrouded figure casting shadows on memories of the future? A malformed Chris Marker statue sandblasted to obscurity? A beautifully melted humanity? Oculto Pelos Seres is all of those and more. By now RAKTA's signature brand of punk fueled, goth tinged, seemingly structureless yet extremely taut soundscapes should be familiar to you and if it isn't then this is a great place to start.  
150 copies on pink, 350 copies on black vinyl housed in a textured glue pocket sleeve with a vellum lyric sheet and stickers bag. Art by Chihiro Yoshikawa. Sounds by Bernardo Pacheco. Mastered by Daniel Husayn. 

Both bands are playing Not Dead Yet in Toronto this weekend followed by respective European tours. Catch them if you can. Both bands are stocked with the finest people in the world and play great music.

We also have some IRON LUNG shirts while they last and a bunch of extra distro stuff. Get it all in the ILR STORE.

Thanks a million. -Jensen

Friday, September 15, 2017


Out now:

FACELESS BURIAL - Grotesque Miscreation LP w/download (LUNGS-105)
 Coming from the underlands of scorched minds and poisonous everything, FACELESS BURIAL have arrived to ruin you with 34 minutes of blast-surging, malformed death metal mayhem. Hyper-menacing. Grinding. Dirty. Death. Members of Agents Of Abhorrence, White Walls and Internal Rot if you're keeping score.
 166 copies on red vinyl and 500 on something else housed in a heavy duty reverse board jacket adorned with art by Xavier Irvine. Recorded by Finn Keane, Xavier Irvine. Mastered by Mikey Young.

In a flash of fury and madness, the available copies of the NASTI LP we had already sold out. Before we could even get home to the computer and write this mess up. More are being printed right now already. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.

These and many more fine wares are yours for the buying at IRONLUNGRECORDS.BIGCARTEL.COM

Have a day,

Out now: CØNDITIØN - Subjugated Fate 7"

CØNDITIØN - Subjugated Fate 7" w/download (LUNGS-097)
  CØNDITIØN is back with a masterful stroke of devastation to follow up 2015's Actual Hell. They say some things get better with age and in this case we couldn't agree more. Subjugated Fate is an exploded blister on the rotten skin of humanity. And like that jingle that won't stop playing in your head, a festering sore in the aural canal. Still big, still vicious and always pure American D-Beat. Accept nothing less.
 300 copies on radiation yellow vinyl with hand stamped labels housed in Jaybo art on a textured folder sleeve. Recorded in Lost Angeles by Mike Kriebel. Punk.

Get 'em while they're radioactive at the ILR STORE

We also threw up a bunch of new distro stuff from our extended families. RAKTA tour gear, INTENSIVE CARE LPs, URANIUM CLUB everything and more.

The NASTI and FACELESS BURIAL LPs will be out September 15th. Stay peeled.

Out today on ILR: NO FAITH and DAUÐYFLIN LPs

Just a quick note to let you know that we put out a couple new records today. You can hear them and get them at http://www.ironlungrecords.bigcartel.com

 New for May 5th 2017:
NO FAITH - Force Subservience LP w/download (LUNGS-094) Members of DISCORDANCE AXIS, DEMONBROTHER and VACCINE combine forces on 'Forced Subservience', a constant hammering heart of power violence bursting from inside a wall of harsh power electronics. An unstoppable mix of fury, vitriol, sound and scum for the modern era of world failure. This LP, their second, primarily serves to expose the corruption of war and the abuses of authority society has come to accept as commonplace. Its a sad state of affairs today. The alarms are sounding... Recorded, mixed and mastered by Will Killingsworth.

DAUÐYFLIN - Ofbeldi LP w/download (LUNGS-096) Absolutely furious Icelandic hardcore punk. And for you non-natives the title Ofbeldi translates to Violence which is a very appropriate description of the sounds you'll find here. Twisting dagger fuzz guitar, murder-chorused bass, brass knuckle beats and vocals that melt a body down like an acid bath. A real mean ear fucker. Touring the US in July 2017 so watch out for that!!

Thanks for you continued support. -Jensen

BAD BREEDING - Divide LP preorder up now

Starts shipping April 7th 2017.
BAD BREEDING - Divide LP w/download (LUNGS-104) 
Bad Breeding from Stevenage return with their second LP in less than a year. In that time the world has become a melting pot of hate, absurdity and on the brink of destruction and Bad Breeding have made a record that sums up these dark, dense and claustrophobic times. Once again the relentless rhythm section drives the sound with guitar work that is squealing and immense alongside vocals that spit bile and razor-sharp lyrics. Standouts include The More the Merrier - which sounds like prime Icons of Filth from 1985 whilst last track Endless Impossibility is a five-minute-plus dirge that hits hard like Killing Joke but with more noise and chaos. On Divide Bad Breeding have upped the intensity and made an even stronger album. Rather than being self-released, they have now joined La Vida Es un Mus in Europe and Iron Lung in the States.
