Peace de Résistance: Bits and Pieces LP Out now

Sorry State is stoked to distribute Bits and Pieces, the debut LP from Peace de Résistance, a solo project from Moses Brown of Institute and Glue. Moses describes the sound as "demented glam rock," but there's plenty of the great songwriting and DIY punk scuzz you know from his other groups. It's honestly a fantastic record and we couldn't be more excited to help with it. Bits and Pieces is out April 13, but you can hear a track below and pre-order it from Sorry State right here.

Also, Sorry State is handling distribution for this release, so if you have a shop or a distro, hit us up for wholesale copies!
