Do you like Blink-182 and splatter vinyl? Well does Hot Topic have great news for you! Starting next month and continuing throughout the first few months of 2014, the retailer will be releasing exclusive splatter variants of basically every Blink record. We'll have more details on each release as they become available. Mark me down for one copy of Dude Ranch, please.
It appears that yet another pressing of Blink-182's Take Off Your Pants and Jacket will be available at Hot Topic. This pressing is red/green/yellow splatter and will be limited to 2000 and should be popping up sometime next week online for purchase.
The vinyl represses for Fall Out Boy's Take This To Your Grave and Panic! At The Disco's A Fever You Can't Sweat Out can be pre-ordered now at Hot Topic. The site currently has a 25% promotion going, so I would take advantage of that if I were you.
We're teaming up with Hot Topic for some really great stuff coming up. They recently put together a video of some of Warped's biggest names and how they customize their jeans. You can view that in the replies. However, Hot Topic is looking to see how you customize your jeans. They're asking people to make a video on how they customize their jeans. 1 winner will win an iPad, a year’s supply of denim and CDs from all the bands that participated in the campaign. You can view the details here.
The following was posted on the Mightier Than Sword facebook page, under the comments for the picture of the TOYPAJ vinyl inner sleeves. It's from someone claiming to have worked on the artwork for this release -- and I guess sort of explains what happened?
Hot Topic has put together a video of "Holiday Tales" featuring the likes of Avenged Sevenfold, Hollywood Undead, Never Shout Never, Suicide Silence, and Mac Miller all telling their favorite and worst Christmas presents. You can watch it in the replies, but I warn you - it's got to be the worst collection of bands in one video I've ever seen.
All Time Low will be appearing for autograph signings at select Hot Topic locations. Details in the replies, where you will also find the band's song "Time Bomb" sung in Simish for The Sims 3: Generations expansion pack.
Meg and Dia will be doing a small Hot Topic in-store tour where the first 30 fans who purchase their new record, Here, Here, and Here, or a Meg & Dia shirt will get to attend an acoustic show by the band, and those folks, as well as others who purchase the record or merch, will also be able to go to a Meg & Dia signing. Head to the replies for dates and details.
