Ume Announces Exclusive Limted Edition Vinyl Releases For Record Store Day 2018

If you are one of those vinyl diehards who hunt and forage the bins at garage sales and travel miles just for the chance of snagging an old 45 that you used to own as a youth, then you very likely consider Record Store Day to be your National Holiday. Yesterday, the fine folks at Universal Music unveiled a laundry list of musical coolness that will be exclusives for this year’s event. Though many of these are NOT Rock and Metal, I’ve just shared the entire list and the album artwork so you can share with friends who are planning on joining you on your LP Adventures on April 18th. Let’s take a look.

The Press Release:
Los Angeles – March 7, 2018 – UMe is pleased to announce details for several exclusive, limited edition vinyl releases confirmed for Record Store Day 2018. With special releases from Bobbie Gentry, Chet Faker, David Bowie, Def Leppard, Ella Fitzgerald, Elton John, Frank Zappa, Gloria Gaynor, Marvin Gaye, Soundgarden, Sublime, The Police, The Who and more, UMe’s slate for April’s hotly-anticipated music shopping bonanza is filled with an eclectic and exciting mix that includes re-pressings of classic albums and singles, as well as several U.S. vinyl release debuts. All the special releases will be available at Record Store Day-participating record stores on Saturday, April 21. Visit RecordStoreDay.com for more details and to find your local shops.

Killing Joke Release New Single & Announce 2016 US Tour

The weather outside is abysmal and its looking like the plans I had for a rocking show on Saturday have been cancelled as a result of it and that makes me mad.

While I have never seen them in concert before, I have heard from many that they deliver the goods from the moment that they hit the stage and that makes me excited to announce that thanks to the folks at Livenation how PiercingMetal will be putting a few lucky readers into the show. Read on how to participate and where it’s all happening.
