Forever the Sickest Kids to re-release debut on vinyl

It was the year of super tight skinny jeans, neon-colored clothes, emo fringe, and catchy electro-pop tunes. It was the late 2000s and Forever the Sickest Kids were one of the many bands who managed to make a name for themselves in the scene during that time. Flash forward several years later and the band has been quiet at best, making it hard to believe that it’s been a decade since their debut album, Underdog Alma Mater, graced our (black) iPod classic.

Last last month, the band decided to celebrate the anniversary of their breakout album the only way they knew how to; reissuing the record in vinyl form. As per a message on the band’s official website, Underdog Alma Mater is their only album not to get the vinyl treatment so they decided to rectify that for the occasion.

“In honor of the 10 year anniversary of our first full-length album, Underdog Alma Mater, we are officially announcing the limited edition vinyl! Oddly enough, Underdog Alma Mater is the only Forever the Sickest Kids full-length album so far that never got a vinyl edition, so we are in the process of getting these pressed and ready to ship as fast as possible!”

Fans who would like first dibs on the gold vinyl version of the album are encouraged to sign up on Forever the Sickest Kids’ website here.

Not much as been heard from the band since their last time on the Vans Warped Tour in 2013. In 2015, they advised fans on social media that they were alive and well and taking time to focus on their personal lives. In 2017, vocalist Jonathan Cook said in an interview with Highlight Magazine that “the band isn’t defunct, but dormant” leaving the door open for a reunion or even new music.

Underdog Alma Mater was released on April 29, 2008 through Universal Motown. The record features several of the group’s biggest hits including “Whoa Oh! (Me vs. Everyone),” “She’s a Lady,” and “Hey Brittany.”

Jimmy Eat World to Reissue Albums on Vinyl

Jimmy Eat World will be hitting a massive milestone in 2016; their debut album will officially turn 20 years old. In honor of the momentous occasion, the band have revealed that they will be reissuing several of their album on vinyl next month. The reissued vinyls will include: 1996’s Static Prevails; 1999’s Clarity; the album that arguably launched them into the mainstream, 2001’s Bleed American; and 2004’s Futures.

In addition to those four records, the band also revealed that their 2005, five-track EP, Stay on My Side Tonight will also get the vinyl treatment. The record was originally released in only digital format before they decided to release it on CD and now, vinyl. The EP features three new songs as well as a remixed version of “Drugs or Me” from Futures and a cover of Heatmiser’s “Half Right.”

All the reissues, with the exception of Bleed American and Stay on My Side Tonight, will be released as a double-LP.

The Early November have finally answered the question that many of their fans have been wondering about especially after revealing some cryptic tweet yesterday about their album, The Room’s Too Cold . The band went on to announced that not only will Rise Records be repressing the album, but that they will be performing the full album for the first time ever on December 21 at a show in Philadelphia.

They also announced that tickets and the LP’s pre-sales will begin on Friday, September 20th.

Check out the message the band released on their website earlier today concerning the repressing.

To mark the albums 10th anniversary (originally released October 7th 2003 on Drive-Thru Records) it is being repressed by Rise Records on 180 gram vinyl featuring revamped artwork & deluxe packaging. Available December 2013. 

To celebrate the album and the holidays, the band will perform the record in its entirety for the first time ever. The evening will also include an additional set of songs from the bands entire catalog as well as special guest yet to be announced. This special performance will take place on December 21st 2013 at Union Transfer in Philadelphia, PA. 

LP pre-orders, show tickets & limited VIP ticket/LP bundle on-sale September 20th 2013.

On Twitter, the band also let fans know that they had been “cordially invited” to the tenth anniversary/holiday show later in the year. This past summer, the band had been on the Vans Warped Tour with frontman Ace Enders playing double duty in the band and performing his solo stuff.

Something Corporate’s ‘North’ to Become Vinyl

sc

For those that have been suffering from a Something Corporate withdrawal since their reunion tour back in 2010, be in pain no longer, because news has surface that the band’s hit 2003 full-length album, North might be coming to store near you in vinyl form.

Enjoy the Rite Records teased the news over Instagram earlier today by writing, “as promised….it’s coming #north #10thanniversary.” But that wasn’t all the hints that were being given to hardcore and casual fans of the album which turns ten later this year. Label head, Ross Shotland hinted that there might be an October release date (the official ten-year anniversary) and that only 3,000 pressing will be available for purchase.

Shotland also revealed that there will only by three retailers that will be selling the vinyls: ETR, the band themselves and Hot Topic.  Modern Vinyls reports that the record “will be a single LP, housed in a gatefold jacket.”

While this might end up being 100% true, there is always that slight chance that information might change along the way, so for now, take this piece of information with a grain of salt and hope that everything goes as planned.

For those that might have not known, ETR also released the vinyl edition of the band’s other album, Leaving Through The Window, which no surprise is available at Hot Topic.
