PYC 2018 WRAP-UP & 2019 NEWS

2018 was an unforgettable year for Plead Your Case Records. Seed Of Pain and Point Of Contact did a few shows in the southeast, alumni Magnitude had a summer tour with Ecostrike, and new releases of all formats were seen between the Envision demo, Seed Of Pain CD, and long-awaited Search For Purpose LP.


All Search For Purpose pre-orders have shipped and should have arrived now. Thanks to everyone for your patience as we got these pressed and perfected. If you didn’t mail order a copy, there’s still a chance to pick one up through our web store here.

Thanks to everyone who came to FYA Fest and checked out the Plead Your Case line-up of bands showcased. Point Of Contact, the newest addition to the label, debuted both tracks from “Still Loyal To Our Scene” which previews two songs from the full length release to come later on in the year. Cassette copies of this release are available locally to members of the scene now.


To bring in 2019 right, Envision just finished up an East Coast tour with Restraining Order, starting at FYA Fest in Ybor City, which lasted for a week and ended in Boston.

Finally, new releases from Construct and Mourning are in the works. If you haven’t already been introduced to these bands, take a moment and explore their current releases:

Hey everybody, got alot going on here at Plead Your Case HQ so let’s get right into it!

PYC-010: The Onslaught Compilation has been sent off to the plant! South Florida’s own Sandman, xElegyx, Castyoudown, and Drawing Last Breath have all contributed a new/exclusive track for this awesome 7″ comp. Pre-orders/Streaming for that will be coming along soon so keep an eye out!

PYC-011: Magnitude Demo tapes will be available at their first show at the end of this month in North Carolina with xElegyx, Invoke, Skourge, Time Walk, and Kept In Line. This lineup is absolutely insane so if you live in the Southeast/within a reasonable distance, you should make sure to ride out to the gig.


PYC-012: New material from SANDMAN, is written, and will be recorded very soon. Keep on the look out for more details on that release, it’s safe to assume that it’ll be coming out before the end of the year.

As for the rest of the Plead Your Case crew… Invoke is currently playing shows and working on new material which I’m sure will be badass. Bind is taking some time off after their first tour out to the west coast to work on what will hopefully become their first LP. Firm Standing Law are doing their thing and playing lots of cool shows over the pond in the U.K. and maybe… just maybe… they’ll be coming over here soon for some U.S. shows…


Whats up everybody, lot’s of stuff going on here at the PYC camp, so let’s get down to business with the update:

We’d like to announce the addition of two new bands to the Plead Your Case roster:

First up, we’ve got Sandman from South Florida joining the crew. They’ll have a song featured on The Onslaught Comp coming this summer, and a new 7″ in the coming months after that. In the meantime, check out their demo that came out on Arduous Path Records if you’re a fan of Kickback, Congress, Confusion, etc.

Second, we’re super excited to welcome North Carolina’s own Magnitude to the label. Their demo tape will be available soon, and if you’re a fan of Strain, Chokehold or early Trial, you’ll absolutely love it. Keep your eyes peeled for more information on that, and maybe even a new release from them in the future…

If you live on the west coast, be sure to catch Bind on tour as they head out to California for the first time!


Firm Standing Law 7″s should be back from the plant in the coming weeks, and pre-orders will ship shortly after! If you haven’t pre-ordered your copy yet, what are you waiting for?

The bands featured on THE ONSLAUGHT 7″ compilation are all hitting the studio this month, so expect updates on the record very soon.

Thats all for now, peace!
