Haujobb 2LP Vinyl To Be Released on Artoffact Records

German electronic group Haujobb will be releasing their 2011 album New World March as a double vinyl this Spring on Artoffact Records. The vinyl will be available in two editions: a limited to 50 copies translucent version and a standard black vinyl in 250 copies. The limited version will also come with an exclusive cassette that includes the EP Dead Market, which was also released on CD in 2011. These are the first vinyl or cassette releases that Haujobb has ever released for retail.

The double-vinyl will include two bonus tracks that were previously digital only. Neither track has ever appeared on an official Haujobb release, although the group comments that both tracks were "part of the New World March sessions." The post-apocalyptic artwork for both vinyl and cassette was done by Stefan Alt, also head of the influential ant-zen and hymen records labels.
