Welcome back to another jam-packed RECORD OF THE WEEK blog for all you collectors and vinyl enthusiasts out there! Kicking things into gear this week is a brand new One-Sided 12″ EP from FOUR YEAR STRONG, courtesy of PURE NOISE Records, who never seem to let up with their killer vinyl releases! Those colored configurations are absolutely out of control- Just check out that ‘Grey’ / ‘Blood Red’ Half-n-Half version with Black Splatter! The Black / Grey / White Tri-Color AsideBside blend is unreal as well. If that wasn’t enough, the record features an etched B-Side as well as heavyweight reverse-board jackets- NICE!
