To Live A Lie Records—the Raleigh imprint dedicated to bullet-fast hardcore, searing powerviolence and brutal grindcore—has quietly been building its catalog and an international audience since 2005. Now, with a line of almost 100 titles from heavy-hitters like Magrudergrind, ACxDC, Assholeparade and Torch Runner, To Live A Lie is gearing up for a January showcase in Raleigh.

Promising an early start-time in a small, all-ages venue (both TBA), To Live A Lie Records Fest will take place in Raleigh Sunday, Jan. 12, 2014. Florida berserkers Assholeparade headline a four-band bill that also includes Arizona powerviolence scorchers Sex Prisoner, Raleigh’s own heavy hardcore outfit Abuse. and new Washington, D.C., death metal band Genocide Pact, which features members of Disciples of Christ, Last Words and Abuse.

Writing in the event’s Facebook announcement, To Live A Lie founder Will Butler admits, it’s a “small show for a fest, but I think it will do just right.”

We’ll keep you updated as more information is made available.
