If you’re involved with DIY punk rock in southern California, you’ve probably crossed paths with the man, the myth: Mike Cantrell. Anyone that knows him can attest that this one-of-a kind lifer has been at it with full heart playing in, touring in, and booking bands since he was a young teenager. Mostly known as the guitarist for SoCal’s melodic hardcore outfit Slow Children, Mike has also had stints playing in Battalion Of Saints and several other bands. After a near death skateboarding accident a few years back, we all thought we were going to lose him. We’d never dream that he’d be living, breathing and making the best music he’s ever made. We’re thrilled to bring you the vinyl pressing of the 2nd album from his latest project Standard Issue. This album is melodic, deep, and very angry. It burns through with blasting tempos, downtuned guitars and tasteful riffs. For fans of Good Riddance, Propaghandi, Backside, Fury 66, The Unseen, AFI. 300 copies pressed. 100 of each color – clear, oxblood, neon violet. Download cards included. Order it here.
