Dine Alone welcomes PHOX to Canadian roster!



We are beyond excited to announce the addition of sextet PHOX to their Canadian roster. The Madison via Baraboo, Wi natives will release their self-titled debut on June 24. Those who take advantage of the digital presale HERE will receive the new single “Slow Motion” as an instant download. Pre-orders for CDs and vinyl are available HERE.

Produced by Brian Joseph at April Base Studio in Eau Claire, WI and mixed by Michael Brauer, the album is a school of simple folk-pop songs swimming amidst a chaotic eddy of rock, psychedelia, and soul. The breathy-yet-powerful intensity of lead-singer Monica Martin's voice sits somewhere between the evocative agelessness of Christine McVie or Nina Simone with more modern echoes of Chairlift's Caroline Polacheck. Beneath this, an elegant Lee Hazlewood-meets-Regina Spector arrangement and compressed drums that would sit on the edge of a St Vincent record. PHOX straddle the normally shaky boundary between sounding modern and classic.

PHOX Track Listing
01. Calico Man
02. Leisure
03. Slow Motion
04. 1936
05. Evil
06. Laura
07. Kingfisher
08. Shrinking Violets
09. Satyr and the Faun
10. Noble Heart
11. Raspberry Seed

102.1 The Edge announce Edgefest Summer Series



The old adage may say you can have "too much of a good thing" but for this year's festival, Edgefest is proving it wrong. In its past 25+ years, the event usually crams a heap of musical talent into one day over two stages but this year is a game-changer. For the first time ever, Edegfest will happen over three days throughout the summer months - July 1, July 18, and August 16 at TD Echo Beach in Toronto.

The first date will feature performances from Bedlam/Dine Alone's The Sheepdogs and Monster Truck alongside Canadian music heavyweights Matt Mays and Head Of The Herd. Each date will also feature a second stage with additional performers to be announced at a later date.

Expect a wide variety of food and beverage vendors, interactive exhibits and lifestyle displays with a side of Toronto's beautiful skyline.

Tickets for the Edgefest Summer Concert Series will go on-sale on Friday, April 25 @ 10am on LiveNation and Ticket Master with a LiveNation pre-order on April 14 at 10am-10pm (password: PRIORITY). Inside Edge Members will have access to the 102.1 the Edge Mega Ticket (includes tickets to all 3 shows) pre-sale starting Tuesday, April 22 @ 10am.

Buy tickets for July 1st here.

Pre-order the second edition AOF box set



You demand. We supply. In light of the overwhelming demand from AOF fans for individual pressings of Alexisonfire's studio albums, Dine Alone Records / New Damage and Alexisonfire have announced the release of a 2nd Edition AOF vinyl box set. Highlighting these pressings, the set will be available to pre-order on Tuesday, April 15, 2014 at 1PM EDT.
Each set will contain the full studio discography as well as an exclusive slip mat design packaged in a newly-designed box, with albums also being made available for purchase individually. Here is a message from George Pettit regarding the new box set:
“We are doing a 2nd Edition of the AOF box set. It's slightly smaller than the original press and it's a bit cheaper. It contains all of the studio albums on beautiful 180 gram 2xLP's. The first press will remain nice and rare and special for all the psychopaths who got up early on Christmas Day to buy it; in all sincerity, that was amazing and we love you for that. So this is a good way to get all the AOF LP's in one shot but lets say you hate Dog's Blood or Crisis (pfft, we all know you love crisis. Clearly the best AOF record…) and you don't want them…you're in luck because all of our albums will be pressed individually and sold a la carte. They will also be available in your local independent record stores should you feel the need to be charitable to a dying part of what was once a vibrant and profitable music industry. Lots of love” – George Pettit
