You can listen to the A-side, “This Ship,” here and pre-order the record via our site and Bandcamp. A third song will be included on the download and via digital services.

Coriky release update

04.13.20
With the shut down of distributors and record stores still in place across the country and world, Dischord has decided to postpone the release date of the Coriky record until late May. We realize that there are many people who have been waiting for the records they ordered and we very much appreciate their patience. The decision to further postpone the record was made in solidarity with the shuttered shops and distributors and with the hope that the independent music network will survive.

This is uncharted territory, but we’re doing our best to look out for all concerned and hopeful that we can all get to the other side of this together.
