Happy Friday Everyone!
Tons of awesome new vinyl in this week’s blog! Starting it off this time around is a brand new 7″ from Vancouver’s Pop-Punkers in LIVING WITH LIONS! Pure Noise did a great job with this one, going with 3 different (and equally awesome) colored vinyl configurations: the ‘Coke Bottle Green’ /’ Baby Pink’ AsideBside, ‘White’ w/ Multi Color Splatter, and ‘Ultra Clear’ / ‘Electric Blue’ Half-n-Half all look amazing! Kudos to Pure Noise and Living With Lions for a solid new EP release!

The first honorable mention this week comes from SLUMBERLAND Records! This new double LP from WEEKEND came out amazing! Check out those ‘Highlighter Yellow’ and ‘Electric Blue’ Colored Vinyl picks with splatter – Those printed innersleeves and ultra-gloss jackets were a nice touch as well.. Nice!

No ROTW blog would be totally complete without some kind of crazy new release form NUCLEAR WAR NOW! Productions. This time around it is an incredibly impressive LP from CAUCHEMAR! What you’re looking at is a Foil-Stamped Printed Innersleeve showing through a custom die-cut 350gsm 12″ Jacket! Awesome.

And the metal keeps comin’! Check out this beautiful repress of BESTIAL MOCKERY’s “Christcrushing Hammerchainsaw”. That cover art is definitely intense, and that album title might be the best thing ever! The ‘Blood Red’ vinyl w/ Black Splatter and Printed Innersleeve/Gatefold Jackets just make it that much better…

ARREST Records did a bang-up job with this new 7″ release from Shackles! The ‘Coke Bottle Green’ and Transparent ‘Beer’ vinyl choices look fantastic!

From Joyful Noise Recordings comes a rad new 10″ from SEBADOH entitled ‘Secret EP’. That ‘Olive Green’ / ‘Doublemint’ AsideBside vinyl is outta’ control, and the Matte Laminate Jackets were a perfect fit!

THE MYLENE SHEATH knocked it out of the park with this 7″ release from LAVINIA! The reverse-board jackets were a great choice, and the label really covered all grounds with the colored vinyl- How can you complain when you have an option of Splatter, Half-n-Half, and AsideBside vinyl?!

TOPSHELF Records went with Picture Discs and Deluxe Colored Vinyl for the latest LP from THE SADDEST LANDSCAPE! The Tri-Color Striped vinyl looks incredible, as does the AsideBside! I’m sure fans of the band will be stoked on all three options!
