No, it’s not up yet unfortunately, but we do have an update! After some thought, we have decided to set our initial sights on producing a 7″ single from Chipsurf Pipeline. 7″ singles can be really fun, can sound pretty good (better than an LP in some cases), and still[…]

I normally post these sorts of things on my personal blog, but I thought I would make an exception here because I think it could very easily relate to our future plans for Victim Cache and thought our fans might also find it pretty interesting. A few weeks back, I[…]

Or why Bandcamp is awesome! It’s been a little over a week since we let Chipsurf Pipeline loose in the wild and the response has been just amazing! We think transparency is important, however, so I wanted to take some time to talk about our numbers. I should preface this[…]
