Trophy Scars Coming to Vinyl
 
Trophy Scars' Alphabet. Alphabets. will be released on vinyl for the first time ever on Tuesday, March 13th at 5pm EST via Simply Legendary Records. The label was started by AP.net's own Alex DiVincenzo. The pressing is limited to 500 copies; 400 on white and 100 on white with blue splatter with a special poster and letter from the band.
Statement from AlexStarting my own label is something that I've wanted to do since I first discovered my passion for music. I couldn't be happier that Simply Legendary Records' first release is one of my favorite albums, Trophy Scars' Alphabet. Alphabets. In addition to having a lot of personal significance for me, it remains a crowning achievement in the post-hardcore genre more than five years after its release. It has been great working with the band, and we hope to continue our relationship by releasing more of their material on vinyl in the future.

Very cool. Are the plans that I've heard about Bad Luck and the two latest EPs going to be through Simply Legendary as well? I would assume yes based on that last sentence.

Thanks for posting, Jason. I'm so excited to be a part of this.

I'll be in New Jersey this weekend for the band's vinyl release shows, so if you're coming be sure to say hi.

Look how beautiful this is:

Nothing is set in stone, but we are discussing the potential of releasing the rest of their discography over time.

Well I hope you do. The way that one of the guys who works with The Same Ghost Collective described the potential releases sounded amazing.

Wow a vinyl sale where the records have already been pressed already. Imagine that.

I had to expedite a box so I would have them in time for the shows. They will be available, but they will be super limited - 10 splatter and 20 white for each show. If you want one, come see me as early as possible.
