Coming to planet earth during November 2013, record label imprint Spacelab9 makes its debut with vinyl releases for the official score to AMC and Sony Pictures Entertainment’s hit series and Emmy® winning drama BREAKING BAD followed by the official soundtrack to multi-award winning fan-favorite drama series THE WALKING DEAD. A limited picture disc LP edition for each will be available exclusively from lifestyle retail giant HOT TOPIC, hitting store shelves on November 26th and December 3rd respectively, available while supplies last.

This marks the first time that “BREAKING BAD (Original Score From The Television Series)” will be offered on vinyl format. The 2-disc set features nearly one hour of original music composed by Dave Porter, including the now-iconic “Breaking Bad Main Title Theme.” “AMC’s THE WALKING DEAD (official soundtrack Vol.1)” also makes its vinyl debut, featuring tracks from composer Bear McCreary and artists Jamie N. Commons, Voxhaul Broadcast, Baby Bee, Fink, Lauren Cohan (Maggie Greene) & Emily Kinney (Beth Greene) as well as multiplatinum Icelandic artists Of Monsters and Men.

Conceived of by music industry veteran Dave Amcher and staffed by fellow record collectors, film buffs and all-around fanboy fanatics, SPACELAB9 takes a 360 view of music and pop culture fandom with a wide variety of merchandise in the works. Amcher speaks enthusiastically about the prospects for the new imprint.

“Most of us involved with SL9 have worked together running traditional record labels since the mid-1990s. Many a Monday morning has been spent taking turns showing off the spoils from the previous weekend’s plundering of record shows, comic-cons, horror conventions, indie-movie screenings and game pre-sales followed by the inevitable discussion about how we would love to spend more time creating cool merchandise outside of the boundaries of the traditional music industry, given the opportunity. The recent sale of one of our popular label imprints presented just such an opportunity so that’s exactly what we intend to do. Records, art prints, t-shirts and apparel, even action figures and model kits. If it’s fun and it’s something that we would love to own as fans, we’ll consider it. We’re leaving no possibilities off the table.”
