This Record Store Day we partnered with Revolutions Per Minute to donate all the profits from this special release to the Immigrant Defense Project, an exceptional and important organization that, for the past 20 years, has been fighting to secure fairness and justice for all immigrants in the United States. Given the current political climate, increasing ICE raids and the vilification of immigrants, it is crucial to count on resources to help end this era of unprecedented mass criminalization, detention and deportation. Immigrants in the US need our help now more than ever!
To encourage higher donations, we also have an exclusive pin available on Bandcamp available to purchase alongside the digital album. This design is limited and only available through Bandcamp, so get one while you can!

Here with his first single "Rollerskate" from his latest album, 'Toss Up,' we are so excited to announce Kevin Krauter as the newest addition to the Bayonet roster! We are so thrilled to be releasing the breath taking solo album by the Indiana songwriter on Bayonet June 15, and available for pre-order now.
‘Toss Up’ builds on the sonic worlds of Krauters’ first releases, conveying a similar mood with a greater array of instruments and influences. An insightful songwriter with a lyrical style that is both economical and evocative, Krauter crafts unique soundscapes that scramble a range of influences—‘60s flower pop, ‘70s easy listening, ‘80s New Wave,‘90s alt-radio, ’00s indie rock. The secret tension on 'Toss Up', the engine that drives these songs: melody propelled by rhythm, melancholy fended off by the exuberance of simply creating art.
Grab your copy of the limited edition clear green vinyl, which comes with a custom "Toss Up" wooden air glider you can "toss" into the sky as you bliss out while listening to the full album this summer!
'Toss Up' is also available for pre-order in black vinyl, CD, and cassette formats.
