Vinyl news and updates 2/03/2013

This has been a while I know. But here we are and there is a LOT of freaking news to pump out. Some of the pre-orders have been out a while but I feel them to be noteworthy enough to be brought up.

Blink 182 – Take Off Your Pants And Jacket LP + 3×7″ PRE-ORDER 

Blink 182’s follow up to Enema Of the State has been in extremely high demand the last few years, with prices upwards of $150 for just the 12″. This wasn’t helped by the cancellation of a repress which never came to fruition even AFTER people had payed for their orders. Reddit user Beefmitts explains what happened: 

“Mightier Than Sword was supposed to release the exact same package in 2011. A crap ton of people pre-ordered and paid for it, there were a slough of indefinite delays due to “manufacturing issues with the sleeves” and other various excuses until the guy running the label finally stopped posting updates or answering questions. Fast forward about a year and a half after the initial pre-order, he posts a final update saying to hold tight, he’s got Mark Hoppus personally involved and writing the forward, and we’ll have it in our hands soon. Then he completely disappeared. The majority of people who pre-ordered were unable to get refunds through MTS. A handful were able to get refunds through PayPal after explaining the situation and some of the staff had heard about the problem a few times already. Unfortunately every rep I talked to said it was too late to file a dispute and get a refund, even though it had been an ongoing delay for over a year already at that point.”

Apparently shopradiocast may have had something to do with the release as this pressing of 2,500 will feature the Mark Hoppus foreword promised some years back. Also SRC is offering 10% off to anyone who ordered the failed repress. This is the message from them in an email:

Acknowledging this was to be previously released by another label, Shop Radio Cast is offering a priority pre order and a 10% discount to those who previously pre ordered with proof of purchase. To receive the 10% discount and assure advance pre order:

1.) Sign up an account at Shopradiocast.com if you do not have one. Do not sign up for an account if you already have one.
2.) Email the following info to blink@shopradiocast.com

 – Proof of purchase – Email confirmation or a screen shot of Paypal payment
– The email address you used to sign up to at www.ShopRadioCast.com  

Advance Pre Orders will occur early March, however we encourage those who purchased to set up their advance purchase and discount immediately.”

Although it’s been through some evident problems, for me this album would be too hard to pass up so I’ll take my chances. Not to mention the rather epic extra 3 7″ vinyl full of the ridiculous b-sides. For all those still interested the pressing info is as follows:

Vinyl Info:
– Triple Panel Gatefold jacket with 7″ Inserts
– Each 7″ housed in a glue pocket jacket with a full color CMYK insert
– LP is housed in a full color Inner Sleeve
– First pressing, limited to 2,500 include Mark Hoppus Foreword

The Postal Service – Give Up Deluxe 10th Anniversary 3xLP PRE-ORDER 

10 years ago Death Cab For Cutie front man Ben Gibbard and Angeleno Jimmy Tamborello collaborated to produce an indie pop/electronic masterpiece. For all those unsure – they pumped out the track Such Great Hights which has been later covered by iron and wine and a gazillion others. Anyway to keep this short – they’ve just thrown out a new single titled A Tattered Piece Of String and have thrown a ridiculously large collection of b-sides, live tracks, covers (such as the iron and wine) and remixes to make the biggest collection of Postal Service musical tracks that I’d be surprised if any single note they’ve played isn’t on here.

As stated this is a 3LP collection (and/or 2cd if you’re THAT way inclined), and if you pre-order from Subpop you’ll be able to get the Red White and Clear colour vinyl in what they call the “Loser edition” of Give up. Tracklist is as follows:

  1. The District Sleeps Alone Tonight
  2. Such Great Heights
  3. Sleeping In
  4. Nothing Better
  5. Recycled Air
  6. Clark Gable
  7. We Will Become Silhouettes
  8. This Place Is a Prison
  9. Brand New Colony
  10. Natural Anthem
  11. Turn Around
  12. A Tattered Line of String
  13. Be Still My Heart
  14. There’s Never Enough Time
  15. Suddenly Everything Has Changed
  16. Against All Odds (Take a Look At Me Now)
  17. Grow Old With Me
  18. Such Great Heights (John Tejada Remix)
  19. The District Sleeps Alone Tonight (DJ Downfall Persistent Beat Mix)
  20. Be Still My Heart (Nobody Remix)
  21. We Will Become Silhouettes (Matthew Dear Remix)
  22. Nothing Better (Styrofoam Remix)
  23. Recycled Air (Live on KEXP)
  24. We Will Become Silhouettes (Performed by The Shins)
  25. Such Great Heights (Performed by Iron & Wine)

As you can see – it’s pretty freaking incredible. If you’d like to pick up your copy – or just grab the standard edition for the non-complet-ists out there then head HUURRREE

How To Destroy Angels – Welcome Oblivion 2xLP Pre-order 

Nine Inch Nails man Trent Reznor, his wife Mariqueen Maandig and Social Network co-writer Atticus Ross have already created 2 EPs and are ready to pump out their first feature length Welcome Oblivion. After showing us their first freaky as balls video How Long they’ve shown us a bit of a preview into the new tracks of the album (a few tracks also feature on their last EP An_Omen). Their first live show will kick off at Coachella before a string of shows over the states.

The actual package is pretty standard gatefold double Black 180 gram vinyl, but will also contain the CD version and a free HQ download of the album on release day. Also the vinyl edition will feature 2 tracks not heard else where. Track list is:
01 The wake-up
02 Keep it together
03 And the sky began to scream
04 Ice age
05 Welcome oblivion
06 On the wing
07 Too late, all gone
08 The province of fear
09 How long?
10 Strings and attractors
11 Recursive self-improvement
12 Unintended consequences
13 We fade away
14 The loop closes
15 Hallowed ground

The Gaslight Anthem – 59′ Sound & American Slang Blood Red REPRESS THE GASLIGHT ANTHEM - The '59 Sound LP & American Slang LP on Blood Red Vinyl BUNDLE

These are some slightly older records but this new pressing from SideOneDummy is looking freaking GREAT. Click the image to to go to the site and look at that colour.

SAY ANYTHING – IN DEFENSE OF THE GENRE 2xLP FIRST PRESS 

Yes this bad ass double album from Matt Bemis’s Say Anything is finally on vinyl getting pumped out by Shopradiocast. I would have hoped it could be on 3LP or even 4 due to its HUGE amount of tracks. However this time we’re just seeing a double. Either way this thing is flying off the shelves with the 500 gold vinyl press already sold out with the 180 gram black on it’s way out too. It’s your cd version track list for this release but it’s been prettied up a bit with some great gloss and a huge lyric insert to boot.

Vinyl Color:

500- 180 Gram Black
500 – Gold
1,500 – Translucent Purple

SUM 41 – DOES THIS LOOK INFECTED LP FIRST PRESS 

Sum 41 have been and will forever be the early 2000’s highschool soundtrack. Although their latest albums haven’t gotten as much attention their back catalogue is not to be sniffed at. With Shopradiocasts rather incredible last few presses of hard to find or nonexistent albums this is a welcome addition and hopefully not the last of the SUM 41 pressings (PLEASE REPRESS CHUCK). This vinyl comes with TWO BONUS TRACKS, Reign In Pain (Heavy Metal Jamboree) and WWVII Part II. This album is full of Sum 41 classics like The Hell song and Still waiting. It comes in a gatefold jacket with lyric sheet.


Vinyl Color:

500 – 180 Gram Green (PMS 375)
500 – 180 Gram Orange (PMS 1375)
500 – 180 Gram White (Hot Topic Exclusive)
250 – 180 Gram Red

Order yours HERE.

 

 

THE STORY SO FAR – WHAT YOU DON’T SEE LP PRE-ORDER 

The story so far absolutely BLEW ME AWAY with their killer pop/rock/punk release Under Soil And Dirt. And they’re out to bamboozle me again (I hope!) with their sophomore release What You Don’t See. You can preview a track called The Glass from the record HERE.

There are so many different pre-order packs depending how big a fan you are all available from the Pure Noise Records website. However the pressing info for the vinyl is as follows:

500 – 180 gram Black Vinyl
500 – Watermelon Splatter
1000 – Purple/White A Side / B Side
2000 – White
