Drone Errant is an ongoing cassette label focused on releasing punk/hardcore/noise, or whatever appeals to our taste. All cassettes are released in editions of somewhere in between 100 and 150 copies. Please get in touch if you wish to order or distribute our releases.

Upcoming releases:

DRONE - 005
PIGEON RELIGION - "WARM INSIDES" CS

Resurfacing their burnt scalps for a cassette release, Arizona's Pigeon Religion offer up two new tracks of fuzzed out "punk" from their confused, barren territory. Taking cues from prior state acts such as Kor-Phu, Mighty Sphincter, and Jr. Chemists, they seem to be carrying the torch for the style Arizona has been remembered for. These tracks could easily fit into Placebo Record's back catalog. A true modern oddity.

DRONE - 006
ECOLI/MIGRAINE - "SNUFF FILM" COLLABORATION CS
A new release by these disgustingly innovative hardcore bands ala the Bay Area. A joint venturing. Ecoli's past releases bring to mind a mix of the more insane early USHC releases (Koro, We the Living, early Meat Puppets) and a bag of international influence (CCM, Tranqulizer, Terveet Kadet), but with a modern edge. Migraine, on the other hand, take a more dark, abrasive approach by channeling bands like Septic Death, Deep Wound, and Crossed Out through a violent wall of noise. A truly abrasive composition of hatred. I cannot even begin to describe what this collusion will birth. Out in time for the upcoming tour.

DRONE - 007
URBAN BLIGHT - LIVE CS
These Canadians offer up a great recorded live set of some of their tracks off of their recent "More Reality" 12", some old hits, and a few cover songs. This isn't just any garbage rehash hardcore coming out on countless labels. Urban Blight could easily fit in with the early 80s CBGB's scene. Fans of the first Agnostic Front 7" will not be disappointed.



These are some past releases on Drone Errant. Most, if not all, are sold out. If any are available, they will be so through Parts Unknown.:

DRONE - 001
BLANK DOGS - MIRROR LIGHTS CS
The first cassette release by this mysterious outfit. After a few 7"s, Blank Dogs were kind enough to be the first Drone Errant release. If you don't know who this is by now, you have been living under a rock for the past two years. 150 copies, SOLD OUT.

DRONE - 002
DRUNKDRIVER - MY CHINESE SISTER CS
Raw and ugly noise punk coming out of the treacherous bowels of New York. This tape features two new tracks exclusive to this release and an blown out cover of "Look Back and Laugh" by Minor Threat. Flipper, No Trend, and the early Broken Flag label would be good comparisons, but Drunkdriver holds its own. 150 copies, SOLD OUT.

DRONE - 003
NIGHTMOVES U.K. - RECORDS AND GOLD CS
Ex-My Luck members lay down this four song cassette falling somewhere in between the sounds of drum machine punk bands Discolokosst and Metal Urbain and early 90s hardcore coming out on Gravity Records. Full color covers. 100 copies, FEW LEFT.

DRONE - 004
BILLY BAO - I AM GOING TO KILL ALL THE RICH MAN CS
Two songs clocking in over 10 minutes each, Billy Bao do not dissapoint with this new release. This is the degeneration of rock & roll. Total dirge shit punk filtered through the Drunks With Guns single. 100 copies, SOLD OUT.
