There are just fourteen days left to pre-order Run Out Groove’s beautiful vinyl premiere of The Butterfield Blues Band’s Live at Woodstock, capturing Paul Butterfield and co.’s memorable set on two 140-gram vinyl LPs with stunning new artwork in a deluxe tip-on jacket. Place your orders here! In the meantime, however, ROG has announced a new release from Type O Negative.
Last year, ROG reissued the goth metal band’s None More Negative box set in a sold-out limited edition, and now, the label is breaking out World Coming Down, Type O Negative’s fifth album, for its first standalone vinyl release. World Coming Down was their first LP to make the top 40 of the Billboard 200 and fared well in Europe where it reached the upper reaches of the charts in Germany, Norway, and Finland. Inspired by a number of deaths in frontman Peter Steele’s family, it featured such dark songs as “Everyone I Love Is Dead” and “Everything Dies,” the latter of which became a top 40 hit on the Mainstream Rock chart. Steele wrote every track on the LP other than a closing Beatles medley of “Day Tripper,” “If I Needed Someone,” and “I Want You (She’s So Heavy).”
The 2-LP edition will be pressed on 180-gram green and black mixed color vinyl (approved by the band) and in a tip-on gatefold jacket containing an exclusive poster. Per the label, this will be a one-time pressing of 7,500 units worldwide and will be shipping by early April.
