We post out orders at least three times a week. If you're local to Exeter, you are welcome to pop into the office to collect, just call ahead or drop us an email.

To UK addresses we have flat-rate postage costs- £1.90 for small things (CD/7"/T-shirt/zine/pin/tote), £3.90 for big things (12"/LP/sweatshirt). Everywhere else in the world postage is very reasonably calculated by weight & destination.


It's surprising how many demos we receive, so it's no reflection on your band if we don't find the time to respond. To date, we've not released a record purely from being sent an email. We'll be much more keen to work with you if we meet you and you're nice, you're playing lots of gigs, and our friends are raving about you. If you really want to send us your demo, please send a private stream and let us know your plans / what you'd want to get out of working with us.


If you run or write for a blog, website, radio show, podcast, zine or anything else you want to talk about Specialist Subject releases on, drop us an email and we'll be happy to send you press releases and downloads ahead of release dates.


If you want Specialist Subject releases for your shop or distro, drop us an email and we'll send you our wholesale prices. In mainland Europe we are distributed exclusively by Broken Silence.
