You're the lucky reader of the 28th edition of the Vinyl File. This column aims to keep you informed with upcoming releases as well as spotlighting interesting releases, your favorite bands' own collections and labels with a history of vinyl releases worth talking about. As always, Vinyl File is brought to you by Ben Conoley.

This week's Vinyl File is the second of a two–part interview with two members of Paint it Black, who have a new album, The New Lexicon ,dropping in early February. This week we talk to bassist Andy Nelson. Last week we spoke with the band's vocalist, Dan Yemin. Both interviews are totally sweet.

First things first, we've got some winners of great prizes to announce. A few weeks back we ran a contest along with Vinyl Collective. Here's the final report from Virgil over at VC.

We know you have been curious, but here are the answers to the Punknews/VC contest:

Every Time I Die "The Big Dirty" LP brown opaque vinyl
Say Anything "…is a real boy" dbl LP (Green/Black vinyl)
Minus the Bear "Highly Refined Pirates" LP Aqua vinyl
Leatherface / Hot Water Music split LP (blue/grey vinyl)
Poison the Well "Tear from the Red" LP pink vinyl
American Steel "jagged thoughts" LP black vinyl
Flogging Molly "Swagger" LP green
Gob "Muertos Vivos" LP white vinyl
The Playing Favorites "I Remember When I Was Pretty" LP pink/blue half and half
Portugal the Man "Church Mouth" LP plum

We had a 4 way tie for the grand prize. All 4 people not only correctly identified all 10 releases, but they also correctly identified(guessed) the correct colors of each record. We were originally gonna give $100 in credit to the grand prize winner, but since we have 4 winners, each will get $25 in credit at Vinyl Collective. They will also get a copy of Every Time I Die’s The Big Dirty.

The winners are:
John Winters
Andrew Hickey
Nick Davis
Muhammad Hafiz Bin Hassan

Thanks to everyone who participated. This was our most successful contest to date as far as participation goes. There were a lot of people who came very close, better luck next time.
