From UCR:
"At almost 3 years in the works, I'm more that thrilled to announce that I'm finally getting the Explode and Make Up EP out!
The band sorta went on hiatus for a while...literally everyone in the band got married, dealt with some personal stuff, did some other bands(the Bomb, Four Star Alarm, Zero to Sixty, the Methadones), now they're ready to take this up again and play some more shows!!
Denis went in to the studio to record his vocals recently, then everything was shipped out to Tom Petta from Big Wig for mixing & mastering and it's finally ready. So here it is, 6 awesome punk rock songs recorded at various points at various studios over the last 4 years or so, on a one sided 12" record(with a download code...i might do a limited CDr thing, but i'm not sure yet). I ordered the records today so we should have the records in about 2 months give or take a few days. I'll post a track from this later this week. As soon as we know when we're gonna have the records, we'll book a record release show and unleash this monster on you.
This is damn close to being the best record Denis has ever sung on. Those are some tall fucking words, I know, but if you're a fan of any of his past bands, you'll find something in these songs. The band fucking killed it on the recording and Tom did an unbelievable job on the mixing & mastering."

"Debut 6 song one sided LP - EP from Chicago's Explode and Make Up.
Denis from 88 Fingers Louie, Jeff Dean from Four Star Alarm/the Bomb and Pete from the Methadones playing Husker Du/Dag Nasty style hardcore.
ok...pressing #'s:
225 on Blue
300 on Black
all have blank yellow labels"
