Record Store Day 2017 – Sale! 4/18 – 4/23!

Hey Everyone,

Team LAR jacking the mic for just a second to let you guys know that this Saturday, April 22nd, is Record Store Day!

Record Store Day is a day where artists and fans come together to celebrate the culture of the independently owned record store! We’ve all got our favorite local spots that have over the years supplied us with some of our favorite albums, and we love the fact that this holiday focuses on INDEPENDENT record stores above all else!

So to celebrate, you should totally head down to your favorite record store, and pick up some new records! You should also tell them that we sent ya, and that we’d love to stock a few copies of our debut release Radical Chemicals – Volume 1 with them!

To help get you in the vinyl buying mood, we’ll be dropping our vinyl shipping rates between now and Sunday, April 23rd!

International —> was: $14, now $10
Canada –> was $9, now $5
USA –> Was $4, now $0!!

Yes, in the USA, we’ll be offering FREE shipping for the rest of the week! No codes or anything, just place an order as per normal at Lonely Atom Records Bandcamp Page!

You can also get in on the fun by picking up your record here, with the same rules in effect!

As of right now you can get these same shipping rates SITE WIDE in our webstore on this site to match those shipping rates for orders over $5 with promocode: RSD2017

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS! Email us at for all vinyl orders. Currently that code will not work as the shipping class we use is different. We’re working on it.

So, happy Record Store Day everyone!

Lonely Atom Records!

The Pandemics

We’re BACK Baby!

Happy 2016 everybody!

We’ve been kinda quiet lately, but it isn’t without good reason. There’s been a bit of a “Changing of the Guard” here at Pandemics HQ. A more substantial update will be coming when I have a little time, but for now, I’ll just mention that our drummer CJ Dunaieff has decided to leave the band to pursue other projects. We wish him nothing but the best with all of his future endeavors. The other new news is we want to extend a big raucous welcome to our new drummer Jake Navarro! More info on him and what else we’ve been up to coming soon!

In the meantime, please check out our freshly updated “Shows” section and check out all the awesome shows we have going on this summer! Including our long awaited return to the main stage at The Paramount in Huntington (On Tuesday 6/28) with The English Beat and Soul Asylum!

Got some big things in store guys!

Stay tuned!,

RIP Rico Rodriguez :(

Hey All,

We are bummed to hear of the passing of Rico Rodriguez. The legendary trombonist who most people know from his work with The Specials had a full and rich career, playing with tons of great bands, and producing music that was beloved all over the world. He was still playing with Jools Holland and the Gang almost until the day he died. The world has lost a legend, who will be missed dearly.

Rest In Power Rico

On another note, I know we’ve been kinda remiss about updating this website. That changes now. Expect new content very soon.

Shows! Shows! Shows!
