Special Edition Alexisonfire and City and Colour Vinyl for Preorder (And an AoF Box Set, Too)

By the time we get to the end of the month–the final gig will be at Copps Coliseum in Hamilton on December 30–Alexisonfire will be done forever.  And while Dallas’ City and Colour will continue, it’ll be a sad time for fans.

Dine Alone, the label home to both, has just announced limited colour vinyl variants of City and Colour’s three studio albums as well as a special vinyl release of AoF’s iTunes Originals.

The red and green City and Colour releases (for Xmas, geddit?) are limited to just 300 pieces.  Best pre-order yours here now.

The six-track AoF release will be on 180 gram vinyl.  Pre-orders here.  This is the tracklisting:

 

  1. You Burn First
  2. Boiled Frogs
  3. Waterwings (And Other Pool Side Fashion Faux Pas)
  4. This Could Be Anywhere in the World
  5. Transitory
  6. Happiness by the Kilowatt

 

Then we have the Alexisonfire vinyl box set, which includes LP versions of every studio album as well as impossible-to-find out-of-print records like Math Sheet Demos, bonus tracks from Crisis, Insulation Tapes and BBC Sesions.  The box will also feature a photo booklet and other goodies.

Save your Xmas money for this one.  Pre-order information will be available in January.

    It's NO Transitory, not just Transitory. Picked this up at their concert for $25, can't wait to hear it. Picked up a touque for $40 and a shirt for $35. Everything worth every penny.
