Midtown Vinyl Coming Soon
 
Hot Topic will be exclusively releasing Midtown's Living Well Is The Best Revenge and Save The World, Lose The Girl on vinyl this November. Man, it's been a while since we've used that news icon.

Neato!

Not to take anything away from Underoath's breakup but this is the news of the day.

Honest question, who/what determines if an album is a 2x LP? Is it strictly to make more money?

ekarddivad 10/02/12 03:49 PM

Man I wish Forget What You Know was coming out as well.

Holly HoX! 10/02/12 03:51 PM

The length (typically) determines if an LP is 2x.

Pretty sure neither of these albums need to be....

not sure, but i doubt they make much more profit if at all. they have to press twice as many vinyl and produce more elaborate packaging (if it's a gatefold). personally, i don't care for 2xLPs unless it's practical... like 16 songs full-length songs or more. then again i don't really know jack shit about how this stuff works. just speculating.

Yeah....no....there's no reason that these should be 2xLPs.

They'll make some nice change pressing 1500 of each at $22 a pop.

Stoked! WIll buy both

a defunct pop-punk band releasing vinyl is bigger news than a bigger more popular band calling it quits? okay?

I didn't think War All The Time needed to be either. There are 3 songs on a side.

MikeYabs 10/02/12 04:14 PM

Excited to get both of these on vinyl.

Jason Tate 10/02/12 04:14 PM

Will buy.

No. Length and fidelity.

Fidelity is very loose term when talking about pop punk on vinyl imo
