Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson | 180 gram LP
Release date: September 30, 2008
Pre-order Now Available

Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson, Brooklyn's best-kept secret, is set to release his self-titled debut album [CD/digital via Say Hey Records] on 180 gram black / white half & half vinyl via Brooklyn-based label Academy Fight Song on September 30, 2008, now available for pre-order

Recorded with the help of
Kyp Malone [TV On The Radio] and Christopher Bear [Grizzly Bear], Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson is a debut album for the times, one that shows hardships endured by a man who seems much older than his twenty-four years. Beginning with the demented campfire-sing-a-long "Buriedfed" and continuing on to illustrate the life of a man who lived with carelessness and abandon, Miles' sweeping debut is both a profound and powerful feel.  One listen will transport you to the decrepit benches of Coney Island, in a drug-induced haze, and multiple listens will allow you to pick up on the smart and witty songwriting that accompanies Miles' emotive guitar rock.

Miles is currently on tour and will embark on a journey back home to Brooklyn, NY supporting Damien Jurado. A complete list of tour dates can be found here.

Four Year Strong | Rise or Die Trying 180 gram LP
2nd Pressing
Release date: September 30, 2008
Pre-order Now Available

Academy Fight Song is proud to announce the second pressing of Four Year Strong's debut album Rise or Die Trying on limited edition colored vinyl, out September 30, 2008.  Hailing from Worcester, MA, Four Year Strong play a unique version of pop-punk and hardcore, blending the emotion and positivity of both genres. Composed of an 11-track fury of catchy vocals, intense guitar riffs and pounding drums, Rise or Die Trying defies genres and destroys any notion of a stagnate pop-punk scene.

Having blazed through the initial 1,000 unit vinyl pressing, scanned over 22,000 CD sales, and toured endlessly with this year's Warped Tour, Four Year Strong are preparing to embark on a full U.S. tour with New Found Glory and Crime In Stereo, followed by a two-week headlining tour with I Am The Avalanche, and a U.K. tour with New Found Glory, Set Your Goals and Crime In Stereo. A complete list of tour dates can be found here.

The LP will be pressed on extra heavy 180 gram virgin vinyl with a matte jacket, matte inner sleeve, and two limited color pressings:

- 200 clear green / solid purple "nuke"
- 300 clear yellow / solid purple "nuke"

Both color pressings are now available for pre-order at, including a super limited vinyl/poster package featuring a screen-printed poster [limited to 75], available only while supplies last!
