This Place You Know out 9/24 | Pre-order Music & Merchandise


Wilkes Barre, PA hardcore upstarts One Step Closer recently announced their debut full-length, This Place You Know, and today they're back with another preview of the album, "Chrysanthemum." Due out September 24th from Run For Cover Records, This Place You Know, finds One Step Closer honing their passionate and anthemic style of hardcore to create their most urgent and compelling set of songs to date, and proving why the young band has already garnered a reputation for standing out from the pack.




"Chrysanthemum" follows lead single "Pringle Street" (which earned early attention from the likes of Revolver Magazine, Stereogum, BrooklynVegan, NPR, and more) and captures One Step Closer at their most ambitious.

Mini Trees' debut LP "Always In Motion" is out September 17th, listen to 'Carrying On' and pre-order now

We are excited to announce the September 17 release of Always In Motion, the debut album from Mini Trees,

The project of California born and Los Angeles-based artist, Lexi Vega, Always In Motion is a collection of relatable indie-pop songs that acknowledge our collective anxiety about life’s improbability. “Over the course of the album I teeter-totter between having questions and wanting answers, but the resolution is to be okay with not knowing. I think I do find some acceptance along the way, but the album purposefully concludes with no real resolution," Vega said.




To celebrate the announcement, Vega released a brand new single, “Carrying On.” The driving, upbeat track follows the debut of previous single, “Spring.” Watch the video for “Carrying On” here.

Preorder the album here and both album singles are available for streaming on all streaming platforms.

Mini Trees currently has two live performances scheduled:

8/19 w/ Thao at Topaz Farm, Portland, Oregon

9/30 w/ A.O. Gerber at Moroccan Lounge, Los Angeles, California
