Hey Everyone!

Friday has arrived once again, and we’re back with another HUGE batch of sweet new vinyl records for your consumption! We can’t say we weren’t excited to see this week’s top contender pop up at the office!   FAT did a great job with this reissue of PROPAGANDHI’s debut LP, “How To Clean Everything”, and that custom ‘Turquoise’ and ‘Golden Yellow’ AsideBside vinyl couldn’t be more perfect!    The Black Vinyl as well as the exclusive ‘Fat Store’ version look great as well…. I’m sure fans of Fat-Classic will be jumping to get their hands on this one!

BAND:  Propagandhi
LABEL: Fat Wreck Chords

———————————— Honorable Mentions ———————————————

The first honorable mention this week is a gorgeous new 7″ from PELICAN, courtesy of The Mylene Sheath! The Gloss UV Varnish Jackets look great, as do all 5 colored vinyl configurations! That ‘Grey’ / ‘White’ Half-n-Half version is just perfect, and the ‘Grey’ in ‘Ultra Clear’ P15 is awesome as well!

Check out this colorful new 7″ release from THE MENDITION OF THE QUAY. The ‘Ultra Clear’, ‘Doublemint’, and ‘Baby Pink’ were all perfect choices!

A389 went ALL out with this killer repress of INTEGRITY’s latest LP- They went with pretty much every option a colored-vinyl fan could ask for- The splattered, tri-color, color-in-color, and AsideBside w/ Splatter versions all look insane!!

You gotta’ love the simplicity and grim-ness of this new 10″ from RADIOACTIVE VOMIT. The reverse-board black and white 10″ Jackets and Printed Inserts were a wise-choice, and the whole release looks pretty slick! That’s also one of the best band names we’ve heard in a while….

Panic State Records did a great job with this repress of “Viva”, the most recent 7″ release from THE MOMS! That ‘Ultra Clear’ Vinyl w/ ‘Highlighter Yellow’ Haze and Splatter was a spot-on choice to match the cover-art! NICE.

From FLENSER Records comes a brand new split LP release between VESTIGES and PANOPTICON! Kudos to FLENSER for the rad idea of doing a split LP release, and the package looks great to boot! The gatefold jackets came out fantastic, as did the Color-in-Color and Splattered vinyl configurations!

Century Media did a great job with this new live 7″ release from Canada’s metal-warriors in 3 Inches of Blood!

Last but not least is an enormous new release from Relapse Records and WINDHAND! Their new double LP is entitled ‘”Soma”, and it includes 5 different options of heavyweight 180g colored vinyl! That combined with the reverse-board gatefold jacket w/ Spot UV printing make this one BEAST of a double-LP! Awesome.

WHOA, that was a lot of new wax! We hope all of you enjoyed these new and impressive vinyl releases, and as always, make sure to check back next week for another round! Until next week… VINYL. RULES. ALL.
