Mixtapes Animal Style Records recently announced plans to re-release Mixtapes' EP How to Throw a Successful Party. The EP is due for a October 30, 2012 release and will be available digitally as well as on a one sided 12-inch in 3 different colors. Co-vocalist, Ryan Rockwell, explains how the EP came about and its original intentions:

So, we originally recorded this to come out for free alongside Maps & Companions and we were really stoked on it. It was 9 acoustic (mostly) songs and we're really happy with them. People have been asking for a while about it being on vinyl and now the time seems right, so the great Matt Medina is putting it out on Animal Style Records! It's gonna come out at Fest and be limited to 500, If you are reading this on a blog or news website I look forward to reading about how much we suck. We are happy this is coming out on vinyl and you should buy it on all 3 colors because that's what ICP does and they are rich <3.

Mixtapes last released Even on the Worst Nights earlier this year and have also added dates with Such Gold and Raindance to their upcoming tour with Aficionado and Citizen starting next month.
