Hope you all had an awesome week! It was certainly a busy one around here, just check out all the awesome new releases that came in! Starting it off this time around is a brand new 12″ LP from LESS THAN JAKE entitled “See The Light”, courtesy of Fat Wreck Chords! Those three colored vinyl configurations look incredible. The ‘Mustard’ / ‘Aqua Blue’ Half-n-Half was an awesome choice on FAT’s part, as were the ‘Ultra Clear’ w/ Blue Splatter and Opaque ‘Mustard’ versions! Definitely an impressive looking release… Kudos Fat and LTJ for doing a great job on this one!

———————————— Honorable Mentions ———————————————
The first honorable mention this week is a rad new 7″ release from ARMY NAVY. That ‘Electric Blue’ and ‘Beer’ Half-n-Half colored vinyl fits the layout perfectly, and Turntable Kitchen did a killer job with this release!

From DEATH AGONIES AND SCREAMS comes a colorful new 7″ offering from North Carolina’s Black Metallers in WYQM! Which color configuration is YOUR favorite? I’d have to go with the Black / ‘Silver’ Half-n-Half with Black Splatter, but they all look so awesome!

Half-n-Half vinyl seems to be the trend in this week’s batch of records, and that is definitely not a bad thing! The ‘Milky Clear’ / ‘Black’ Half-n-Half included in this new release from A BETTER TOMORROW is just another reason why two-colored vinyl configurations are so rad… Nice one!!

The latest 12″ from THE YOUNG LEAVES is called ‘Alive and Well’ and features three different and equally eye-catching colored vinyl choices! The ‘Swamp Green’ w/ Splatter versions look amazing, as does the ‘Sea Blue’ w/ Gold Haze!

Last but not least is a grim new double LP from Nuclear War Now! Productions! The band is GRAVE UPHEAVAL, and this package is truly a beast! Everything from the 180g AsideBside colored vinyl to the Reverse-Board Uncoated Gatefold Jackets and 8-Page Stapled 12″ booklets make this a release to reckon with! I’m sure that headbangers far and wide will be losing it over this one… Metal!!
