3 months ago, Arthur D. was at le Bataclan watching the Eagles Of Death Metal , he managed to crawl out of the venue and escaped unhurt but with an incredible sadness. In the dark days that followed, rock n'roll was a reliable and constant companion and so he decided he wanted to give something back to music, we must not forget live music was also a target that night.
As he received an unexpected indemnity from the french state, he realized that he could kill two birds with one stone using that money : nurture his love of rock and raise his middle finger to those who attack music. The idea is simple : Left Front Door Records is a small music label focusing solely on helping bands release their music on physical supports, mainly to sell them at their merch stand, be it LPs, singles, live recordings on vinyl or CDs in small run. Basically it's a loan with no interest, and with added promo.
The label will release albums from underground rock n’roll acts with a focus on alternative and stoner rock bands.
The first release on the label will be the vinyl edition of Sidewave's first album : Glass Giant This album is reminiscent of Failure, Hum or the Smashing Pumpkins with an added stoner rock flavor, this first LP is simply a masterpiece, very original and comes with a great sound thanks to mix master Aaron Harris (ISIS, Palms). This L.A. band has been followed for some time by Kelli Scott from Failure.
The second release will be by a Swiss band called The Shit whose frontman is none other than Robert Butler from garage heroes the Miracle Workers and member of the band Reverend Beat-Man took on tour. The record was recorded at Rancho de la Luna and produced by David Catching (QOTSA, EODM), who plays lead guitars on most of the tracks.
