All In Vinyl have recently released the first limited edition 7″ split as part of their second series of exclusive splits! This time New York’s own Iron Chic (featuring ex-members of Latterman, Agent and Small Arms Dealer) and the UK’s very own Pacer (who recently served as main support on Iron Chic’s UK tour) have got the special vinyl treatment!
The split contains 2 new songs from each band and it really is both band’s at their very best. Iron Chic continue to serve up their own slice of punk rock and feed it to us with Those Heads Are Our Heads and Climate Is What We Expect, Weather Is What We Get. Iron Chic is another band that the underground punk scene so desperately needs right now. Straight to the point anthems with lyrics to shout from the top of your lungs and this is exactly what they have acheived with these two songs. Finding another band like them is a hard task and with the experience they have, it’s no real surprise that they continue to release amazing songs like these two.
Pacer’s two new songs, Throwback & Bricklayer, are also exceptional. It’s a lot to say for them, as it’s quite often that Pacer aren’t sure where they stand on their sound. Sometimes it’s here, sometimes it’s there and then sometimes it’s all over the place but since releasing their debut EP, No. 1 last year, they have done some work and already matured in to one of Britain’s best up and coming punk rock outfits. Throwback is the highlight on the EP and they have taken a note straight out of Iron Chic’s book in making anthems. If Pacer continue to make songs as brilliant as Throwback (or if not better than Throwback) then in the future, we best hold tight as we’ll all be in for a real fucking treat.
Iron Chic recently finished off their UK tour with a stunning headline show at The Peel in Kingston. Footage of the show can be seen below of the band opening with Every Town Has An Elm Street.
The vinyl is available to purchase right now with an immediate download of the 4 songs.
