Botch Sign With Sargent House


Botch have announced that they have signed with Sargent House in a move to keep their musical catalog active following the dissolution of Hydra Head Records. A statement newly issued by the group also teases some “exciting things in 2022” to come. Here’s what the band had to say:

“We’re continuously humbled by the ongoing interest in our band despite the fact that we’ve been broken up for nearly two decades. With the folding of Hydra Head Records in 2020, we were presented with the dilemma of figuring out how to keep the catalog available to both newly initiated and longtime fans. We were lucky to have the support of Sargent House, who are helping keep Botch’s legacy alive by administering the digital catalog, curating the band’s archive of photos and paraphernalia, and getting our records in the ridiculously long queues of vinyl pressing plants. We’re happy to be part of the Sargent House family, excited to have our music back up online, and looking forward to exciting things in 2022.”

Don’t get your hopes up for a proper reunion however as the band’s former bassist Brian Cook has since commented:

“Yup… the @botch_band catalog is back online courtesy of @sargenthouse. Yup… they will be doing vinyl reissues, but y’all know what vinyl delays are like these days so no set date for that stuff. And nope… we’re not playing shows”
