In just over two years since launching, Cooking Vinyl Australia has rapidly built an impressive roster of artists and label partners and is thrilled to announce the new partnership with Boston indie-rock label Run For Cover Records.


Run For Cover Records

Cooking Vinyl Australia co-director Stu Harvey states: “Run For Cover have released some of my favourite albums of the last few years.  So it made sense to start working together.  We kicked off with Modern Baseball last year and that went great, so now I’m stoked that we are going to start working on a bunch more great Run For Cover albums down here”Stu Harvey, CVA

Kicking off the partnership is with Virginia Beach rockers, Turnover. Turnover are set to release their forthcoming record, Peripheral Vision on May 8. Formed in Virginia in 2009 and released their debut full-length, Magnolia in 2013 on Run For Cover Records, in addition to numerous EPs and splits.  The band has toured the US and the UK multiple times, just this week embarking on a six-week spring tour.

Citizen have emerged today as one of underground alternative rock’s most promising bands. They’ve just wrapped up their first Australian tour and are set to release their sophomore record, Everybody Is Going To Heaven out June 26.

Hailing from Ann Arbor, MI, Pity Sex specialise in foggy, lo-fi noise pop and fuzzed-out, blown-speaker walls of sound, all with their own midwestern emo subtleties. They have recently completed recording their sophomore full-length due out later this year.

Having toured Australia playing to full rooms in 2014, Basement, the much loved lads from Ipswich, England have recently announced they’ve hit Assault and Batter 2 studios in London recording their third full-length with producer Sam Pura.  The follow up to 2012’s colourmeinkindness will be coming out later this year through

Run For Cover Records label manager Tom Chiari adds: “We’ve been looking for the opportunity to work with Stu in Australia for a few years now.   When we got the opportunity to release the Modern Baseball record with him and his team at Cooking Vinyl, it was a no-brainer.  They’ve done a wonderful job bringing the band to a wider Australian audience and we’re thrilled to expand our partnership to include some incredible new artists and releases this year.”

Cooking Vinyl Australia represents respected labels such as Cooking Vinyl UK, Dine Alone, Razor & Tie, Resist, SideOneDummy and Thirty Tigers and has secured local deals for incredible acts such as Kate Miller-Heidke, Shakey Graves, You Me At Six, The Smashing Pumpkins, Lindi Ortega, Frank Iero and Modern Baseball to name a few.
