Hello everyone,

We are happy to announce that you can now order the Navies and Decahedron CDeps from the site. The official release date for both is June 13th. Both bands will be starting separate tours in the next few weeks to support their releases. A little more info on both is below, along with some other news.

An Estate is a five-song CDep from Navies, a hellishly loud band out of Washington, DC. They've toured relentlessly over the past year, and after releasing a split 10-inch with A Day In Black and White via Level-Plane records, the band has landed at Lovitt for their most recent batch of noise. We are really excited to be working with them and think you will enjoy their CD a lot.

The Decahedron six-song CD entitled 2005 was recorded with Don Zientara at Inner Ear. Continuing with guest bassist Jake Brown (Moments in Grace) after the departure of Johnathon Ford, the tracks are a continuation of their impassioned, pointed assault on puppet presidents and shadowy superstructures. The CD is enhanced with a full live set in Quicktime of their 2004 MACROCK performance.

Del Cielo's new full-length, Us vs. Them, came out March 7th. A follow-up to 2003's Wish and Wait, Us vs. Them is a collection of charged rock songs and contemplative ballads that alternately evoke passion, rawness, and a carefree outlook that are both refreshing and vital. The record has been getting coverage everywhere, including features in Thrasher, Alternative Press, and Guitar Player! The band has some upcoming shows scheduled, including a free in-store at the Tower Records in Fairfax, VA, on May 21st at 2pm.

We are please to announce we will be working with The Grey from Canada and putting out their full-length, which they are currently recording. The band features members of bands such as Shotmaker and Three Penny Opera. The band will be touring Canada, Europe, Japan, and hopefully the US (if the Border Patrol decides to let them back into the country). We added photos and their bio on our site and hope to add a MP3 soon. You can find out more about the band by visiting their website: http://thegreymusic.com 

We just got in a repress of the Engine Down S/T LP; like the first pressing, they are all on 180-gram vinyl. All orders for the vinyl will get a free Engine Down button and sticker. The band is finishing up a European tour and are doing a full US tour at the end of the summer with des_ark and Bellalea.

Fin Fang Foom is back out playing shows and planning to do a short tour in July. They have also been writing some new songs.

Rah Bras recently finished recording and mastering a new full-length entitled WHOHM that will be released in early fall; it is nothing short of jaw-droppingly intense, dramatic, and stunning.

Ben Davis recorded and mixed his songs recently for his half of the split CD with The Rosebuds. The Rosebuds plan on recording their part in the next few months and the release should come out sometime in early fall.

This fall is our 10-year anniversary of doing the label -- hard to believe! We are hoping to have some special events and/or a release to celebrate, and if things come together, we will let you know.

We are in the planning stages of getting together a Lovitt Transmissions: Volume Two DVD. We are looking for footage of any of the following bands: Bughummer, Del Cielo, Navies, The Grey, Decahedron, Ben Davis, Maximillian Colby, Pinebender, and Dame Fate. If you think you have video that would be good enough to make the DVD, please let us know by e-mailing info@lovitt.com with the subject "Lovitt DVD."

We will be starting to offer some exclusive songs to some of the digital download services, including live sets and outtakes, so be on the lookout.

We are working on some exciting releases for later in the year; we hope we can give you more news on next update. It is going to be a busy year for us over here!

Take care,

Team Lovitt
