BLIND•MAN•DEATH•STARE

W/JERKBEAST, KMART WARRIORS, COSMIC KAHUNA, D.I.C.K (CD LAUNCH)

punk rock

After a run of shows on the South and East coasts earlier in the year, BLIND MAN DEATH STARE went and demoed tracks for a new full length album. In doing that, the “Born a Centimetre from the Finish Line” EP idea was born. The thought of releasing something earlier, to give everyone a taste of the new songs, and give more time to finish more tracks, it seemed like the right thing to do. A few weeks later, they went back into GOATSOUND & Jason Fuller recorded the tracks for the new EP. $15 includes a free "Born a Centimetre from the Finish Line" CD EP
