The 6th annual Record Store Day is on the horizon (April 20) and once
again Revelation is releasing some cool vinyl for the big day. Here's
a bit of info on each record:
SLIPKNOT Self Titled 7" (REV013)
Originally released by Revelation in 1989, and only pressed twice,
Slipknot's 7" is coming back to vinyl for the first time since 1999!
CT's Slipknot play a unique brand of thrash metal/crossover not unlike
early C.O.C. 1000 pressed on orange vinyl and only available from
record stores on April 20th. Don't confuse this Slipknot with the
silly mask Slipknot from Iowa.
SENSE FIELD Self Titled LP (REV037)
Hear where it all started for Sense Field. This self-titled 12"
combines the original two EPs Sense Field self-released before signing
with Revelation. Fourteen songs from one of the most incredible bands
out of Los Angeles. Like a lot of our titles from the '90s, this
release has been out of print on vinyl for several years. Now is your
chance to get it on vinyl again! 700 pressed on red vinyl for Record
THE NERVE AGENTS Days Of The White Owl 12" (REV094)
Released in 2000, The Nerve Agents debut full-length is one half NYHC and
one half East Bay Punk with unique stylings all their own. With
original vinyl pressings selling out immediately, turning them into
instant collectors items, we're bringing this one back for Record
Store Day. 1000 pressed on white vinyl.
The new Down To Nothing 7" is coming soon to give you a taste of their upcoming full-length, "Life On The James," due out later this year. This vinyl 7", "Greetings From Richmond, Virginia," features two LP tracks and the exclusive, non-LP B-side track "Swallowed Up."
