Downcast - Tell Me I Am Alive LP

Ebullition #61

Available on LP

1,000 made.

When Downcast broke up they left unrecorded songs on the table. "Tell Me I Am Alive" picks those unrecorded songs up, and also moves forward with a whole set of brand new Downcast tracks; 10 tracks in total. This LP is not about the past, however, it is about now and the future. It picks up where the first Downcast LP left off and continues pushing their sound forward both musically and politically. Ebullition is ecstatic to be releasing this LP in 2020. Amazing.

Downcast - 7"

Ebullition #1

Available on 7"

The Downcast 7" was the first release from Ebullition.

The first 3,000 copies came with issue #9 of No Answers. Once the first pressing was sold, the 'zine was turned into a mini insert that has been included with all of the later pressings.

This 7" will not be re-pressed. There are less than 200 copies left and when they are gone this record will be out of print.

Downcast - LP

Ebullition #4 and #6

Available on 12"

The LP cover is also a 20 page booklet that includes lyrics, pictures, and a lot of text written by the band members.

There are two different versions of this LP. The first 3,000 records are scribed as Ebullition #4 on the inner groove of the record. This version had a different mix and doesn't sound all that great. After these were sold the LP was re-mixed and re-mastered, and then it was re-released as Ebullition #6. The only way to tell the difference is to check the scribe on the inner groove.

In the early '90s Downcast toured the United States with Born Against and Rorschach. After their LP was released they then toured Europe.

Downcast also had one song on the Give Me Back comp LP, as well as one song on the Voice Of The Voiceless compilation LP.

After Downcast broke up the various members went on to form Not For The Lack of Trying, Jara, and Born & Raised.

Downcast had many drummers over the years. Something like 6 or 7 different drummers in total. Chris Hervey played drums on the LP. He was an awesome drummer, but he left the band in favor of Statue. Chris was stabbed and killed on 1/4/96 by a prowler who had broken into his girlfriend's house during the night. He was a great musician and a friend to many people in the Southern California hardcore scene.

At some point we had wanted to do a Downcast discography CD, but it never materialized. However, Downcast is potentially getting back together in 2016. They will be practicing in December of 2015 with the goal t, at the very least, record the 4 tracks that they wrote but never recorded. Additionally, they have been writing new songs and would like to play some shows and perhaps release a new LP. If this new LP occurs or if they four lost songs are recorded then I think it might be appropriate to release the vinyl with a Downcast discography CD. So the CD wouldn't be a stand along product, but it would at least exist. As we get more concrete information about what is happening we will solidify our plans.

The LP version will not be re-pressed. There are less than 300 copies left and when they are gone this record will be out of print.
