ANTI & Epitaph Join Forces To Commemorate Record Store Day

We here at Anti-/Epitaph Records are pleased to lend our enthusiastic support to the April 17th celebration known as Record Store Day. The purpose of this annual commemoration is to emphasize the unique and vital culture surrounding independently owned record stores. As Anti artist Tom Waits says,

"Folks who work here are professors Don't replace all the knowers with guessers Keep 'em open They're the ears of the town"

In order to increase awareness of the importance of these bastions of excellent and otherwise hard to find music, there will be special releases, in-store appearances and other forms of celebrations. And as a token of our heartfelt appreciation, Anti/Epitaph Records would like to contribute with appearances and performances from some of our most exciting artists, and a handful of Record Store Day exclusive releases.

Record Store Day Appearances From Anti-/Epitaph Artists:

Roky Erickson is about to release his heralded new album True Love Cast Out All Evil. On Record Store Day this immensely original and influential artist will be signing records and conversing with hometown fans at Waterloo Records in Austin.
