Some of us folks at Ipecac reside in California. But it seems we just were not showing enough Cali love. We scoured the stat looking for another Cali artist that represents what we are all about. We settled on our state capitol, Sacramento. We tried but could not land the most talented Sactown musician, Ron Artest, so we settled for second best. In this case, runner up is a beaut! Call it prog rock or whatever you want, but the truth is, Hella have been creating some of the most off the wall, deep, original music for years. We are beyond proud to offer to you their brand new full length "There Is No 666 In Outer Space". You might have seen them on the road opening for Mars Volta or System of a Down. If so, you know what it is all about! This record takes it to a new level. At times they are a 2 headed monster, Zach and Spencer are sick talented dudes. Tune in today! HELLA has arrived!!!!!
The new Hella record is not the only new release we are celebrating. Congrats Rai and John!!!!!! Viva James has arrived!!!! The Ipecac family grows!!!!
Hey look! PEEPING TOM is doing a US tour headlining in April!!!!! Check out dates in the calendar section. Looking into Australia/NZ/Japan/South America and more Europe later in the year!!!
