You didn’t think we would drop a bomb like we did last week and then just walk away did you? We have more grand news and it looks like June is going to be a big month for us all.

Bust out your baby powder and Vaseline, this one might cause chafing. To mark the new COCKSURE single release, WAX TRAX! presents the two dandies themselves performing live Saturday night, June 14th, 2014. This is what you call a good old fashioned record release event, and we hope you will join us.


The show will be held at Debonair Social Club in Chicago and will include an opening appearance by another Chicago mainstay, GoFight. As if that wasn’t enough, Wax Trax! favorites from the label as well as prime selections from the Lincoln Ave. store playlist will be spinning all night. The Wax Trax! history runs deep with everyone involved and we are really looking forward to tipping a few back with some old friends.

Will we have the new single on hand at the show?…yes. Will this be a show be a fabulous shit kicker like only COCKSURE can produce?…Yes. Does Chris still look great in dreads and hot pants…YES!!

We hope to see you all 6/14 at 1575 N. MILWAUKEE AVE
to share in this special Wax Trax! event. Tickets are only $10 and available at the door. And all this on Father’s Day weekend? Somewhere above or below, my dad & Dannie must be laughing!




I think most of you know by now about the special US shows with our favorite benevolent Belgians, FRONT 242. This is the first time back as a band since our Wax Trax! Retrospectacle in 2011, Thanks to the hard work of Cracknation, FRONT 242 is scheduled to play only three US dates this September. Cities included are New York City, Tampa, and our very own Chicago to close out the massive Cold Waves III, two day benefit event at Metro. The time to book your arrangements is now! We have worked out a few special things with the fine folks of Cold Waves, and hope that you all will be pleased. This might be one worth traveling in for…More info to come later.


With all our silliness going on, we obviously took a little time off from the Wax Trax! archive auctions. We’ve been cleaning more cobwebs out of the vault and have dusted off some new (old) items and have them ready to go. We should be starting another Ebay auction this weekend. For more details, check in next week to see what goodies will be on the block. Of course, if you prefer to fill in your collection with the current available merch, the online store is always open.

That’s all we’ve got for you, but since this IS “Release The Cocksure Part 1”, you never know what Wax Trax! may drop into your virtual toilet bowl at any time.

As always, check into the official facebook & twitter page for the latest interaction with Wax Trax! fans and artists.
