BIG NEWS: Tough Age is the latest addition to the Mint Records Roster!!

July 8, 2013

BIG NEWS: Vancouver's Tough Age is the newest addition to the Mint Records Roster! Tough Age blends scrappy pop-punk with surf overtones and are influenced by obscure '60s CanCon singles, Guided By Voices, cats and comic books. On Friday, Jarrett K (Korean Gut, Apollo Ghosts), Penny Clark, Lauren Smith and Chris Martell, who is a drumming wizard, came by for drinks and made it official. We're thrilled to be working with them and will be releasing a full-length release this fall.
