Press ReleaseIn honor of Record Store Day (April 20th) this year, Pirates Press Records, Longshot Music, Contra Records, Randale Records, Oi! The Boat Records, and Rebellion Records have teamed up to launch a year-long, weekly 7" record subscription!
The intention of the UNDER ONE FLAG SINGLES SERIES is to unite Streetpunk and Oi! vinyl collectors worldwide, to celebrate the loyalty of this sub-genre, and to prove how strong we are when we come together as a one team, under one flag! Releasing one 7" record each week and limited to editions of only 350 records per title, this series will kick off on Record Store Day 2013. All records will be housed in a simple 'old school' full color printed paper innersleeve with printed center labels, inserted into a custom-printed shipping envelope.
All six record companies involved are contributing material for between 6-10 weeks. This series aims to highlight great bands that fans of Punk and Oi! will already know, while also introducing the base to new and upcoming bands that are destined to be future favorites of the scene.
The following record stores will be selling a limited number of subscriptions: Subculture for Life (DE), Dirty Mick Records (USA),
TKO Records (USA), KB Records (DE), Skele-Tone Records (USA), Randaleshop (DE), and OiOi The Shop (UK).
Other than those copies and the ones going out to all the bands/labels, THE REMAINING 200 COPIES WILL BE SOLD AS A SUBSCRIPTION ONLY. Subscriptions will be available at PIRATESPRESSRECORDS.COM three weeks before Record Store Day, on April 1st, 2013 at 9am Pacific Standard Time. The year-long subscription costs $150 plus a shipping plan. A shipping plan is required and costs $50-$150, dependent on shipping location and shipping plan.
Many of the records will be exclusive only to this series while others will be limited versions of upcoming or recent releases. You can trust from the labels involved that this will undoubtedly be a year-full of gems!
