12/1/16 - We are excited to close out the year with a debut release by Chicago's NEW DOUGS, comprising of two long time friends of the label. These fine folks, along with the help of many friends, have put together an infectiously catchy NEW WAVE / PUNK record titled "STOKED". Stoked is now available in digital format for download at the HWC INC BANDCAMP site. Join NEW DOUGS and LASERS AND FAST AND SHIT for the annual HWC INC HOLIDAY PARTY at BURLINGTON BAR on FRIDAY, DEC 9TH to celebrate the release of STOKED!!! As always, half of all proceeds for each HWC Inc release go to local causes. In 2016 these causes are YOUNG CHICAGO AUTHORS and CHI PRC. The release will become available at all major digital and streaming vendors by mid month. Support LOCAL music and LOCAL causes!
