It's been in the works for a long time, but it's finally ready—we are extremely thrilled to be bringing you American Art, the debut album from San Diego's Weatherbox, on vinyl for the first time ever. On August 28, we will release American Art on the way it was meant to be heard, as a double LP with a gatefold sleeve, brand new artwork and complete lyrics, as well as a digital download of an alternate mix of the album that has never been heard before. When I reviewed this album five years ago, I wrote that "it will change your life if you let it." This is something I still hold true—the lyrics on this album have affected me more than almost any other record I own, and the music is still a beautiful marriage of math-rock complexity and pop smarts. It is truly an honor to be a part of this.
100 black (YCR webstore exclusive—limit one per customer)
300 dark blue marble
300 white (Hot Topic exclusive)
Pre-orders for American Art will launch at noon EST on Monday, July 16 in the YCR webstore. Mark your calendar.
