Updates 2013

2013-12-19 - Backpatches added
A bunch of backpatches has been added. Also, one new patch (Skitsystem - GrÄ vÀrld) patch has been added to the webshop. There are also some new releases from Insane Society which are up on the web as well. One other intresting record to be bought is the Brink of despair - Rooted in dust LP. Really good crustpunk all the way from Leipzig/Neugersdorf.

2013-12-01 - 077 raw version out now
The Passiv dödshjÀlp - Kollektiva mönster raw version is out today. Fucking grab it Before it's sold out as this one is superlimited. Actually we got less than 10 copies left...

2013-11-26 - Preorder Passiv dödshjÀlp - Kollektiva mönster raw version
Now it's possible to preorder the superlimited Passiv dödshjÀlp - Kollektiva mönster raw version. Special screenprinted sleeve with black vinyl. Limited to 100. However, there are a few who will split this 100, so there are actually less than 10 of those in HFR stock. This might be on of the rarest Passiv dödshjÀlp record released to the public. Get it as preorder or while they last or buy it at Ebay for $100...

This records will be released December 1. Do you dare to wait to buy it then?

2013-11-02 - New releases in 2014
Late 2013 or early 2014 will see the light of day of the Krigskontrast/Skiplickers - Split EP. Besides this, we will also release the new Misantropic recording during early 2014. Some of the new songs has been played live, so some of the new songs are up as live recordings on YouTube. The new recording will be a split LP with the fellow crustpunks Eaten Raw, also from UmeÄ.

For those of you who wonder what Eaten Raw sounds like, they do have a bandcamp site where you can hear their old Demo (eatenraw.bandcamp.com). However, if you just wanna take my word for it - they really are the UmeÄ answer to Wolfbrigade. Fucking excellent d-beat/crustpunk!

We will also do the raw version of Passiv dödshjÀlp - Kollektiva mönster LP, which is another sleeve than the regular version, a print as screenprinted sleeve and on black vinyl. Those will be handnumbered and limited to 100 copies.

Moreover, in 2014 we will celebrate the start of one of the best anarchapunkbands in history: Contravene. In 2014 there has been 15 years since the start of the band. Initially, "The ways of oppression", was released by the band themselves in a very limited quantity. Now it will be re-issued so that more people can get it and marvel over this amazing band. This version will include a different artwork.

2013-10-26 - Up again online
We have now conducted most of the move. There are many things to be taken care of but all the stuff are as of today in the same building. All orders that has come during the time of absence has been shipped today. We will let the prices remain until November 1, so place your order.

In the next few days we will update the upcoming projects of Halvfabrikat. Amongst other things there will be a repress of the Fredag den 13:e LP, as well as a very limited repress of the Krigskontrast EP. Many have been asking about this one... Now it's time to do it due to the fact that there is more space to put the stock here. Also we hope to reveal some new stuff as well.

We have also updated the webshop a bit with restocks. Finally we go the long awaited Anger burning - When LP back in stock, as well as a bunch of patches and backpatches. Restock of Anatomi-71, M:40 (the Historiens svarta vingslag logo design), Protestera (the GrÀnslösa land logo design) and Passiv dödshjÀlp patches. Moreover we have added two Distress backpatches designs, the D-beat apocalypse and the Bombs for war, d-beat for Peace designs. Expect a few new records added in the webshop this weekend.

Besides that, we took the decision of starting to sell utilities. The section is called Paraphernalia, and to start with we have added empty CD cases, clear or black trays in sets of one. This is to complete your CD collection as those damn jewelcases always seem to break. Hopefully in the future we can start to sell vinyl related utilities as well.

So, the Fredag den 13:e LP is out now. Order your copy today, as the quantity is very limited from us... All copies are on clear vinyl! Buy it or regret it forever. It's that good!

So the Fredag den 13:e LP has been postponed a few days due the the fact that we haven't yet received the records.

2013-04-21 - Sad/glad HFR news
Due to some misunderstandings and mishaps we have decided not to do the Totalt jÀvla mörker - Söndra & hÀrska LP. This cataloguenumber will be reused for another release.

However, although it is sad, this is not really a loss, as we have many cool releases in the pipeline, some of which are to be added on the upcoming page within the next few days.

Also, we have put up the Fredag den 13:e - Tjugohundratretton LP and the Boredom - Über alles LP as preorders. The releasedates for those two have been changed a few times, but hopefully now we can stick to them.

We have some releases which are still secret to the public. We will try a different approach for once. This release will also be reveal as soon as possible.

2013-04-10 - Recent shipment
We have gotten new patches. The shipment contained mostly new Misantropic patches, but also some new Distress. The Misantropic patches are all new motives. Now you will find a broad selection of colours on the patches. The stock on all the patches besides the black are very limited, so act fast if you want to have another colour than plain black.

We have also gotten a load of records from Trująca Fala. Mostly Knife in the leg but also Born dead icons, Artic flowers etc.

Upcoming gigs/tours

As always, this will be a gatefolded sleeve.
