Digital Leather – We are very happy to announce this week marked the release of the Digital Version and CD version of the new album from Digital Leather “All Faded”. We expect the vinyl version in early fall 2015. You can pre-order the vinyl in store section of the website now. At the time of this post we still have 2 copies of the test press edition of 50 available still! Here is a great video from the track “Stay in Bed”
Miscalculations – A new addition the the FDH family! We received a demo from these guys a few months back in addition the the LP’s they did with Rockstar & Deadbeat records. While FDH still loves great garage and powerpop we have really made a push to move further into a direction of a synth label. This record really grabbed me as its a killer garage pop band that sprinkles in some more electropunk tracks. We decided to team up with 2 great German labels (P.Trash & Rockstar records) to bring you the 3rd Miscalculations LP “Kill The Whole Cast”. We have added the track “The Same Needle” to our player on this page as it falls more in line with the FDH sound, however you can also check out the track “Impossible To Trace” by clicking the track name for a taste of just how much this album varies from one track to the next. We are expecting this vinyl in late 2015 and only 200 copies will make it over to the USA so get your preorder in now!
(co-released with P.Trash & Rockstar Records)
Deletions – As we announced a month or so back we will be teaming up with P.Trash records to bring you the first full length from “Deletions”. This LP will be limited to 300 copies and we have a very limited version of 65 for the FDH mailorder silkscreened cover edition. Preorders are up and running in the store section of our page for this record and we expect the vinyl to ship in the fall.
A few weeks back we announced we would be releasing the new album from Digital Leather “All Faded”. We wanted to share a few updates. In addition to “Face to The Wall” (the track that is currently on our player) this week we also debuted the track “Cold Inside” over at CMJ. You can now hear that track as well as preorder the digital version over on our bandcamp page.
Also in addition we have been taking orders and are nearing the end of our limited test press package limited to 50 copies. We have less then 10 available for sale. Here is a picture of the front cover to this very limited test pressing LP. You can find buy it now buttons located below.

About a year ago we got a demo tape from a band out of Harrisburg PA named Deletions. After a few listens to the “Bit Decay” demo I was hooked. After playing the tape to death we decided to have these guys out to play the record release show that we did for SGNLS. After a killer set I knew I wanted to be involved in a vinyl release. We are happy to announce that Deletions are joining the FDH roster. The debut full length Hungers offers 10 tracks in under a half hour, Maximum Rock and Roll called them “Smart and swampy keyboard driven raw garage punk” and I tend to agree. We will be teaming up with our Euro partners P.Trash records to bring you the digital release of this album July 21st followed by a LP version in the Fall / Winter. The LP will be limited to 300 copies and we will be offering a beautiful silkscreened mailorder version limited to 65 copies (the picture below is the FDH silkscreened version).
You can hear 2 tracks “Bit Decay & Thin Thread” over on our bandcamp page. These songs give you a great taste of the variety of sound this band offers on this record. We are expecting this vinyl around the same time as the recently announced new record “Digital Leather – All Faded”. If you have already ordered that and would like to add this in the package please contact us at email@example.com to arrange combined shipping. Otherwise please feel free to order below. We also love to reward our customers who preorder records so we will be giving away 2 copies of the test Pressing (limited to 15 copies) of this vinyl randomly.
LP – Silkscreened mailorder version limited to 65 (of 300 pressed) – 12$
Digital Leather has been serving up a steady diet of heavy synth driven dark pop for years. We are very excited to announce that they will be working with FDH records once again for the new album All Faded.
All faded blasts through 11 tracks in just over a half hour. 5 people making heavy, synth-forward music. They use a lot of Moogs. Shawn Foree began Digital Leather as a one-man bedroom thing in Arizona, releasing records on a ton of labels (Fat Possum, Goner, Volar, etc). After relocating to Omaha Nebraska a band formed. They toured around and as a band Digital Leather recorded All Faded. It’s the first album with a full band. The record sounds huge in comparison to the earlier efforts. Big drums,thick bass, great guitars, and of course biting synth-leads courtesy of The Faint’s Todd Fink.
Torment, darkness and hangovers fuel All Faded. But does that make it a downer? All Faded is cohesive. It’s undoubtedly Digital Leather’s best record. A new page for a band reborn. They will take you into the future with them. Baptized in the vibration of a thousand LFOs. You can now hear the track “Face to the Wall” the first single that debuted today over at Brooklyn Vegan.
We will be releasing the Digital Version and CD version On June 23rd, with a vinyl version to become available in the fall of 2015. In addition we will be offering a special limited vinyl version that will include both the standard LP as well as a test press version limited to 50 copies (the limited test vinyl version will ship in late June to US customers

Here we are wrapping up our yet another year with some great records added to our catalog. Why we have always has dabbled in many music styles this year was undoubtedly the year of the Synth over at FDH. We released 4 full length records each bringing its own sound to the table but working very well together as well. Until the start of 2015 we will offer a special deal with all 4 LP’s for just 40$.
TIT “TIT” – Debut 4 Song 12″ Ep from Bobby of The Hussy & Shawn of Digital Leather. Dark, weird, and catchy co-released with Volar Records (USA). (will include limited yellow vinyl while supplies last)
SGNLS “2″ – Following up a LP on Blind Prophet Records. This Snythpunk outfit is not afraid to venture into Psych, Kraut, and a bunch of other territory. Co-Released by P.Trash records (Germany). (will include limited DVD while supplies last)
The Bad Doctors “Burning City” – A Post Punk New Wave masterpiece that can easily be mistaken for a lost Factory Records release.
Teledrome “Teledrome” – Power Goth. Very catchy full length following up the debut 7″ on Hozac Records. Co-Released by P.Trash Records (Germany) & Mammoth Cave Recordings (Canada).
We are excited to announce our newest release “SGNLS – 2″ is now in stock. This LP is 40 minutes that blur the lines between synthpunk, psych, krautrock. This LP is limited to 500 copies and is co-released with P.Trash records in Germany. The first 50 mailorder copies come with a bonus DVD “Active Decontrol” that features some videos, live sets, interviews, and other goodies. The official release date for the record is Nov 26th however all preorders will ship before then. Before the ablum is officially out you can hear the A side of the records at http://fdhrecords.bandcamp.com/album/2. We are also offering a special price if you purchase this record along with “The Bad Doctors – Burning City LP” we released earlier this year.
The LP we released earlier this year from the Powergoth band Teledrome is now back in stock. The repress was 500 copies however only 100 of them made it to the USA so act fast as we don’t expect them to last long.
Teledrome LP – 11$
The debut LP from TIT (Shawn of Digital Leather & Bobby of The Hussy) is up next for release. We expect these in mid December. The first 166 copies are on yellow wax. We have less then a dozen of the color version still available.
TIT LP – 11$
Spent Flesh –
A little self promotion here. Spent Flesh is my own band. FDH co-released out 10″ back in 2012. This coming spring we will be touring Europe with a new 7″ coming out of P.Trash records & Rockstar records. While Spent Flesh for sure doesn’t have the sound that I have moved FDH into over the last few years we will be touring with a huge FDH merch table. More info to come on that tour soon. If you want a taste of the weirdo hardcore we play feel free to visit http://spentflesh.bandcamp.com/. We have 2 tracks leaked from the Euro tour 7″ “Deviant Burial Customs”
