You're the lucky reader of the 42nd 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.


Asian Man Records has done another pressing of The Lawrence Arms' A Guided Tour of Chicago and Ghost Stories. The label says that the new ones will have silk-screened covers, but they'll be different than those of the first pressing. They also released a 2xLP of Cocktails And Dreams, but it sold out. Fast. Asian Man has a bunch of vinyl we've already talked about, so go buy it. Seriously.

Are you into Faith No More? Me neither, but I do remember stealing one of their cassettes from my friend's older sister in high school. I was into it. Either way, fans can expect a repress of their 1992 album Angel Dust. More information should be available here shortly.

Epitaph Records is going to be releasing Motion City Soundtrack's latest record, Even If It Kills Me, on vinyl. Why they didn't choose to release one of the band's good records"> is beyond me. Nevertheless, if you want it, check it out here.

No Idea Records is now taking pre-orders for Off with Their Heads's upcoming album Bottoms Up. They are also taking pre-orders for Lifetime's self-titled album as well as Hot Water Music's Forever and Counting, both due in July.

Fat Wreck Chords have delayed selling the vinyl for the latest Me First and The Gimme Gimmes album, Have Another Ball. The label says that once they have 'em, they'll start to sell 'em.

Since everyone is going bat-crazy for the new Batman movie, why not buy the soundtrack on vinyl? Do it here.

The Faint are back with a new album. The poorly spelt Fasciinatiion is being pressed as a double LP and can be pre-ordered here.

Do people still lose it for Isis records? I'm not sure, but they have another album of their Live series availableas well as a re-release of The Red Sea, which can be purchased here.

On July 21 Runner Up Records will be releasing a split between Shook Ones and End of a Year.

Victory Records hasn't said much about it, but they are going to be releasing Somewhere in the Between from Streetlight Manifesto on vinyl. You can get it at Interpunk in an exclusive color.

Deathwish Inc has a number of pre-orders on the go, including released from Cold War, Bitter End and Narrows. If you have anything you would like to see published in Vinyl File, email ben (at) punknews (dot) org.
