Splits have been around for decades and we all know that they're a great way of finding new music and for bands and labels to exercise their comradery. Today we have something slightly different from what we're used to; a three-way split between Shirts Vs. Skins, Sunning (Either/Or Records), and Cut The Brakes. Engineered by Tom Kelly of Broadcaster, Sunning and CTB's songs lean towards the punk/emo end of the spectrum, while SVS play a female-fronted pop punk/indie sound. It's also worth noting that SVS is currently running an Indiegogo page to record their upcoming full-length. Cassette copies of the split can be expected soon via I Regret Nothing Records!

Short Stories is a promising up-and-coming quintet from San Diego that has the potential to join the ranks of the underground scene's established acts, akin to Major League or Knuckle Puck.
