Joyful Noise Recordings announces their
2013 Flexi-Disc Series!

The Joyful Noise 2013 Flexi Disc Series features exclusive recordings from 12 of our favorite bands – released monthly on square, single-sided, clear 7″ Flexi Discs. Limited to just 1000 copies solely on Flexi Disc, these songs will not be released digitally or on any other format.  Each release includes full artwork, featuring a unique cover provided by the respective bands.
WTF is a Flexi Disc you ask? Essentially it’s a paper-thin vinyl record. And these particular Flexis are clear, single-sided, 7″ squares. A pretty unusual format, but playable on any standard turntable.
Subscriptions are available on two levels: Standard and Deluxe. $5 / month gets you the Standard Subscription, which includes automatic monthly shipments of each Flexi Disc release. The Deluxe Subscription is available for an additional $30, and includes a hand-numbered, screen-printed wooden box set. The Box Set is custom built specifically to house the 2013 Flexi Discs, and features new artwork by Mackie Osborne.

Qty Limit: Limit of 3 subscriptions per customer. Don’t try to order more and re-sell them on Ebay for $20 or something. We hate that.
Schedule: Individual releases will be announced each month. We will not release a schedule ahead of time identifying which month is assigned to which band. It’s a surprise bitches.
Payments & Cancelations: $5 plus shipping is automatically charged to your card on the 1st of each month. You may cancel at anytime. No hard feelings. There will be a Waiting List created after the series is sold out, and any canceled subscriptions will be given to the next person in line. If payment doesn’t go through at any point throughout the year you will be notified via email and given 72 hours to correct the situation before your account is cancelled.
Change of Address / Payment Info: Changing your address and payment info is easy, and done right here on the JNR website. So don’t sweat it if you are moving soon, or if your card expires in 2013.
A Statement About Exclusivity: Each flexi disc features an exclusive RECORDING, not necessarily an exclusively-written piece of music. Remixes, live adaptations, and demos are considered exclusive, provided the recording is significantly different than the original release.  So don’t get all bent out of shape if Melvins end up releasing a badass medley of Night Goat and It’s Shoved or something.


Pantokrator 2021

Marching Onward

After being together for a quarter of a century, they've been called Illuminati, fundamentalists, and even fascists. Now, with their first new album in seven years, 'Marching Out of Babylon,' they're honed in more than ever, a steadfast and evolved version of themselves. Andrew Voigt digs a little deeper into the Swedish band's roots, uncovers the narratives on the new release, and finds out how a little playground spat brought the band together.

Love and Death and Resurrection

After an eight year hiatus, Love and Death return with 'Perfectly Preserved,' an eclectic and personal release for nu-metal icon and frontman Brian 'Head' Welch. Still at the heart of it all, the man with the dreads details his life in the spotlight after returning to Korn, the launch of a holistic recovery center, and his spearheading of an autobiographical documentary. As fresh as he's ever been at 50 years old, he's still got more to give.
