@chipperjonestx in Lafayette, LA at Heffe’s Saloon!!

Hope everyone picked up their copy of the @chipperjonestx tape during their tour!  @graveyardorbit put these together so if you don’t have one, you’re missing out!
Things are moving pretty fast so if you haven’t taken advantage of all the old stock being half off, now is the best time!
Also I’m still dubbing the showcase tapes, but if you order one I can have it shipped out within the week.  Pre-order your copy of the Cult of Occult 2xCS now! Pope - Known Weed Smoker coming soon. #ritualtapes #blackearth2014 #cultofoccult #airs #ghostnoise #cloudcover
UPDATE: the Smoky Tinted CULT OF OCCULT variant has been replaced with Yellow Tint

Double chrome-plus hi-bias cassette w/ 5-panel J-cards. Housed in hand built drop spine box w/ obi-wrap and wax seal. Co-release with Grimoire Cassette Cvlture.

Hey guys,  sometimes things happen and life gets in the way.  Sadly this time it happened to me in the middle of a lot of projects that all had to be cancelled (aside from 2 that are already paid and in progress).  After the collaborative releases of Pope - Known Weed Smoker with Paco Tapes and Cult Of Occult with Grimoire Cassette Cvlture,  Ritual Tapes will officially say goodnight.

The store will remain open as long as there is stock so please continue to shop.  Any money recovered from the remaining releases will help me pay off any leftover label expenses and ultimately make this transition a lot more smooth for me.

It’s been a lot of fun and I want to apologize to everyone who has been affected by this abrupt end.  If you donated to the Ghost Noise campaign, your funds will go to the band so they can move forward on the 7” release either on their own or through another means.

Thanks to everyone that ever supported me or helped me out in the year that this label has been going.  I can only hope that one day I can be back in the business of physical releases, but for now I’ll be directing my focus to other, less costly, musical outlets.  

Please spread this photo around to let everyone know about all the great deals happening right now!

Tom & them just bein’ Miley.

Saw them in Baton Rouge Sunday night and it was phenomenal!
If any of you have a chance to catch Thou/The Body as a collaborative band anywhere on their tour, DO IT.
