Topshelf & Holy Roar to release new split from run,WALK! and Sirs

Hey everyone! Story time!

The best part of running this label is all the friends we meet and get to work with along the way.


Two months ago, while we were having an absolute blast down in Austin for SXSW, we met a lot of rad people and started some really cool new relationships and projects with a lot of them (that we’ll slowly be unveiling over the course of the year). Some of those people were Alex of Holy Roar Records in the UK and Tom and Matt from the band run,WALK!


Sirs are a band that from the moment we first heard them, and even more so after being blown away by how good they are live, we knew we wanted to work with them.

So today, with that all said, we’re extremely excited to announce that we will be working with Holy Roar Records (UK) to release a split record from Sirs (NY) and run,WALK! (UK) in Late summer/early fall.

You can download run,WALK!’s latest EP PEEKAY for free here. Sirs’ 2010 Vas Deferens can be downloaded on their bandcamp page here.

Both bands will be heading out on tour soon and their respective dates are below.
