Thanks for stopping by and your support. Here's a little disclaimer to explain how to order from a DIY PUNK DISTRO for all you first timers. Please do not expect a procedure similar to Amazon or similar leeches! If you order for the first time please remember that Ruin Nation Records is a one person affair and not a company with employees.


I am running this all by myself and even with help from firends it is sometimes too much and i am not able to respond in time. I try my best to fill your orders as soon as possible but sometimes it might take 3 or 4 days longer because i am distracted with other shit that i am doing or have to do, or i am ill, or just can't be bothered. - If you think it's strange or odd you don't hear from me in a timely manner, always email and ask because i appreciate your order and support ALOT! Thanks!




[1] To avoid confusion! The automatic PayPal check out is currently deactivated! You do not automatically pay the order at check out.  I will get back to you with a payment info as soon as i can. This might take 1-2 days. More if there is a weekend or bank holiday involved. Please also check your SPAM Filters for a reply. I ALWAYS contact you or write back but it seems that some emails do end up in spam filters or have other weird troubles. Especially with french servers! Feel free to email me anytime! Thank you!


[2] Important for orders to the UK: You no longer pay the VAT charge (deducted already from the price) but customs might charge a import fee/tax if your order is above a certain amount.


[3] The Shipping Costs Module is not working anymore! All shipping costs displayed here are only an estimated price. Actual shipping costs can be slightly higher OR lower depending on the daily rates! I will review your order and let you know the final costs for Freight and Shipping while trying to find a cheap but reliable deal!


[4] Since quite a while now it happens that several E-mails i send out end up in SPAM or JUNK-mail folders. This issue includes not only genuine E-mails but sometimes also the automatic responses from the shop-system. You can be sure that I respond to your orders or E-mail within 48 hours. If you do not hear from my by then, check your SPAM or JUNK-mail folder or get in touch with me. Thanks!


Now, happy browsing... Cheers, Stevie

First pressing copies including some few on colored vinyl! - The third album from Grand Collapse has arrived and it is ready to blow your face off! Fusing rapid hardcore with thrash metal and punk Grand Collapse are here to blow you away with their third album ‘Empty Plinths’. Grand Collapse cannot be pegged down to any one clichéd style. The heavy D-beat under flailed-out endless chords, into bellowing NYHC beatdown styles, will make you want to retrace those steps like a book you just skimmed over and felt like you missed a lot of what was going on. In his recent book ‘The Scene That Would Not Die’ Ian Glasper described Grand Collapse as “quite possibly the most vital hardcore punk band to come out of the UK in recent years, and their frantic energy and political commitment bode well for the future of the scene as an intelligent, empowering, positive force.” Who are we to disagree?

Grand Collapse are known for their intense political message and raging live shows. The band stands firmly against all forms of prejudice and promotes animal & human rights. This is evident throughout Empty Plinths. The title track muses about a world without oppressive institutions and trivial effigies lining our streets. Discussing the album singer Calvin writes “I’m buzzing about this one. It’s taken a while but we’re finally ready to let Empty Plinths loose. It’s heavier, darker sounding with some melody laced through the aggro and a few twists and turns along the way. Topically we’ve set our sights on disingenuous clergy, underhand police tactics during a health crisis & trophy hunters who claim to be conservationists amongst other things. We’re not pulling any punches here. It’s a vehement attack on the injustice all around us. I’d love to write about love or something funny happening on the way to the shops but its hard when you’re bullshit detector is always bleeping away!”

This is the first Grand Collapse album featuring new bassist Blag. The album artwork is by long-term band collaborator and artist John Abell. His brilliant woodcut depicting the Colston statue toppling in Bristol last year, where an empty plinth still sits. Layout and graphics are by Welly Artcore with photography by Boo.

Grand Collapse finished writing the songs during Spring 2020 and the first lockdown. They were recorded, mixed and mastered by Lewis Johns at The Ranch Production House (Southampton, UK) in August 2020.

Singer Calving tragically passed away in March 2022.

The European version of one of the most important albums in the history of the hardcore/punk. DOA are godfathers and pioneers of the hardcore scene in Canada and notoriously known for traveling everywhere possible with their trusty and (probably. rusty) old Van. Their DIY spirit was so influential to many other young and freshly formed bands and span a whole scene in the US and also Europe because DOA continued to tour in places almost no other band did at that time. Including the "eastern block".
