InfoKind Of Like Records is excited to announce the release of a split 7" with Cincinnati's Mixtapes and Milwaukee's Direct Hit!. For this release, each band has chosen to write an original and pair it with a cover of the other band's newly written track. Side A features Direct Hit!'s hard hitting "Werewolf Shame" along with an energized cover of Mixtapes' "I Was A Teenage Poltergeist," while Side B includes Mixtapes' sugary-sweet original "I Was A Teenage Poltergeist" coupled with their more pop than punk rendition of Direct Hit!'s "Werewolf Shame."

Due out October 26th, the record embraces the forthcoming holiday and takes on a horror theme - not only apparent in the song titles, but in the album art and packaging as well. Designed by Josh Davis of Dead Meat Design, the packaging draws inspiration from famed MAD Magazine fold-ins and features a pullout tab that turns an eerie face into a four headed monster. The first pressing will feature 3 color screenprinted covers with pink vinyl. Check out the photo gallery for a preview of the packaging with a test pressing.

So stoked for this. Mixtapes is my new favorite band, and I have a feeling Maps is going to end up my #1 album for the year.
