There have already been numerous write-ups about the compilation. You can check those out here, as well as in our press section:

The Shepherdstown Chronicle



In response to recent rumors regarding an alleged dispute between The Shepherd University Picket and BIG BULLET RECORDS, the label has issued this official statement:

“We here at BIG BULLET RECORDS believe that creating a nurturing environment for local arts is absolutely integral to the advancement of these local arts and the artists who are responsible for them. BIG BULLET RECORDS has existed since May of 2008, and during our short existence we have strived to create strong and mutual bonds with local press, businesses, and community groups and members.

Perhaps the largest entity in our community is Shepherd University, home to over 5,000 students. Many members of our label, including countless artists, are currently, or have at some time been students at Shepherd University. We feel that the student publication, The Shepherd University Picket, has been fair in its coverage of our artists during our short tenure in the community. Rumors concerning a recent ‘boycott’ or ‘ban’ against our label and/or artists are inconclusive, and BIG BULLET RECORDS respects the Picket’s Editor-in-Chief’s official statements that were recently made in the online portion of The Shepherdstown Chronicle. In fact, the Editor-in-Chief was even quoted as saying, “…I was unaware that a record label even existed in Shepherdstown.’ The Editor-in-Chief also made it clear that The Picket encourages local musicians to take an active role in making the press aware of upcoming concerts and events.

In response to these statements, BIG BULLET RECORDS would like to also encourage local musicians, whether they are directly affiliated with our label or not, to alert local press about their shows and events. If local coverage is a concern for you as an artist, then do everything that you can to get the details out there, that’s all that anyone can ask you to do. We also want to let it be known that BIG BULLET RECORDS will continue to work on creating and maintaining healthy and productive working relationships with all local, regional, and national press outlets—our artists have received press attention as far as Massachusetts, Oregon, New York, and even Denmark, but it remains imperative for us to maintain these positive relationships in our hometown. We also want to express our continued support of all local music, even that which is not directly affiliated with our label. Shepherdstown and its surrounding areas has a multitude of creative potential, and we will continue to do everything that we can to help everyone realize this potential. We want to thank our fans and artists for their continued support—you are what keeps us going, so thank you, and we hope you are all enjoying the free inaugural compilation.”

The New Year

In Uncategorized on January 2, 2009 at 6:46 am

Happy New Year to each and every one of you! It is our first New Year as a label (we’re not even a year old yet), and we’ve got plenty of plans for 2009. Let’s give some general updates first.

The Demon Beat’s West Virginia tour was a huge success. They are quickly becoming one of the state’s most exciting bands and people are taking notice — be sure to check out all of the new press on them in our PRESS section. WVRockscene (arguably the best WV music site/blog) has named “Trainwreck” by The Demon Beat as one of their top 10 songs of 2008

Greg Loftus was recently interviewed by Jezz Harkin of Breakthru Radio and is currently working on a new record.

Tucker Riggleman has been playing with a backing band called Planned Parenthood. Be sure to check out the videos on his page.

The Resonators have been busy playing shows and are working on an EP in the very near future.

As for 2009, expect our compilation called TERMINAL BALLISTICS Vol. 1 very early in the year. We also have other big things in the works including some possible festival appearances. 

That’s all for right now. We hope you all had a safe holiday season and we wish you the best in the new year.

Stay true,
