Vinyl Record News & Music Notes

GOODTIME BOYS 'Rain' LP (Clear with Pink Splatter/150) 

Goodtime Boys' forthcoming full-length, Rain, is now up for pre-order.

Goodtime Boys have spent five years and multiple EPs, splits, and singles molding their melodic emotional hardcore sound into something that stands apart from their peers and predecessors, laying it all out on their first proper studio full-length. Though Rain is driven with an almost consistently aggressive thrust and unpredictably spastic inclinations, the band's introspective exploration of loss, longing, and existential crises result in flashes of heartrending crescendos and gracefully woven atmosphere. While the album's title seems to reference the doggedly overcast ether the band's UK homeland usually brings to mind, its floral cover reminds us that the grayscale spectrum of cathartic sorrow can also result in colorful growth and beauty.

This is an LP copy of Goodtime Boys' Rain on the most rare color: clear-with-pink-splatter vinyl, limited to 150 copies.

***NOTE: This is a pre-order. Your item will ship and download will be sent on the release date of May 20, 2014.***

BOYSETSFIRE 'While a Nation Sleeps' Gatefold LP (Translucent Purple/1000)

An LP copy of BoySetsFire's While a Nation Sleeps... on translucent purple vinyl (limited to 1000 copies) with a gatefold and embossed jacket printed with metallic ink.

BoySetsFire's While a Nation Sleeps... is the band's first full-length in more than seven years. After a three-year hiatus that saw the post-hardcore veterans lend their time to projects like the Casting Out and Young Lady, the band reconvened in 2010 and soon set to work on some of their truly heaviest, most aggressive and scathing material to date—as well as some of their most melodic. With their signature mix of political and personal themes set to a surprisingly dynamic musical backdrop, long-time fans and even newcomers should find something to enjoy here.
