WIERD Presents the Blacklist Record Release Party!

Wednesday, May 27th, 2009

Hello Everyone,

Its with immense pride and excitement that I announce the arrival of this day which many of us in the WIERD World have waited for for a long time, as this Wednesday evening May 27th WIERD Records presents the official NYC release party for the debut album by our beloved Blacklist entitled Midnight of the Century! As we have so often paraphrased one of our many philosophical heroes Spinoza who once said 'All great things are truly difficult and rare...' I would add to this belief that this record has also proven creating such things also requires a tremendous amount of sweat, blood and struggle to complete in an absolutely uncompromised way, and this massively uplifting sonic tornado of cold guitar pleasure is most certainly no exception :)))

This week at the WIERD Party we will host an open rum and vodka bar from 10:30-11:30 at which time we will play Midnight of the Century in its entirety, to be followed by a FREE champagne toast at midnight for everyone commencing a long lovely evening with our two of our ever-unfailingly supportive guest DJs Patrick(of Salvation, Necromantic, and the Albion Parties) and Frankie Teardrop(Exotic Birds Party, Revel Hotel). I hope everyone who has long followed the band and WIERD will come out this week, as above all we really all want to thank you for all your support and interest over the years...the rarest of the very rare indeed!

For anyone who would like a preview of the record and its trax please visit the website and the band's MySpace page to check out the soundclips, MP3s and additional info.:

Also this past Sunday evening May 24th DJ Pre-Op Trans, Sean and Liz of Xeno & Oaklander/Martial Canterel, and Pieter VR presented a new edition of the WIERD Records Radio show on Veronica Vasicka's Minimal-Electronik Plus show on East Vilage Radio. On this program we debuted one of the new LP's undeniably soon to be singles 'The Believer' for the first time, anyone interested can now listen to the stream by visiting:
