Greetings dear listeners,
I hope this finds you well.
Here's the run down and other odds and ends for the seventh broadcast:
New High on Fire will be released on April 3rd. If you are like me and can't wait to hear it, De Vermis Mysteriis is streaming in its entirety on that great home for heavy metal npr.org.
No joke, NPR is streaming the new High on Fire. Wonders never cease.
I would suggest pre-ordering the vinyl for this one. The sound coming off of the vinyl is something to behold with High on Fire.
I did notice the track listing is in a different order for the NPR stream than what is listed on Amazon for the official release. I don't think it matters what order they put these tracks in because they are all good and they will all melt your brain.
Also on April 3rd, Tim from Rise Against will be gracing the cover of Alternative Press with an interview inside to go along with the glossy picture.
The new Off! record is available for pre-order as well. Their web page will direct you to Interpunk if you'd like to get in line and wait for May 8th. The 1,500 copies pressed on white vinyl have sold out but black vinyl always sounds better to me. Less can go wrong with making the black pellets used for pressing.
There is a science to pressing vinyl that binary code just can't beat.
The list of US releases for Record Store Day 2012 has been made known. I found it underwhelming and frustrating at the same time. The "regional" releases and limited runs need to be stopped. All those records will be on ebay by the end of the day and the people who actually like music get left out in the cold unless they want pay three times retail for them.
That's enough whining.
We make our first visit to the new Anti-Flag record tonight. The General Strike is worth the funds in my opinion.
We also hear from my personal copilot, Bill Hicks. The man was a genius and he is my hero. If something needed said, by golly he'd say it.
Thanks for visiting.
