For you folks just dying for the limited edition vinyl LP, here’s what we can tell you about it. It was mastered superbly (as usual) by Fred Kevorkian, pressed on 150-gram quality vinyl with a wide spine jacket and full-color printed sleeve. We expect them in house at the very end of December, because vinyl pressing plants the world over are slammed with work thanks to cool indie rock kids like Led Zeppelin and The Beatles pressing vinyl copies of records everybody already has on vinyl, eating up the resources of the very few companies still pressing records.
If you preorder the vinyl LP from our webstore, we’ll give you the download immediately on the format of your choice (MP3, FLAC, or whatever other format you’d like). When the record is in your hands, it will also come with a download of the band’s last LP, Fret Sounds, which we’re giving you free because you’re so patient.
And of course, thanks a billion for supporting Stuyvesant as well as our tiny sugarblastic musical venture.
