Preteen Zenith, the new band featuring Tim DeLaughter (The Polyphonic Spree) and Philip E Karnats (Secret Machines), will release an early, limited-edition vinyl version of its debut album, Rubble Guts & BB Eye for Record Store Day 2012 on April 21. The run of 2,000 copies of the album will be pressed on 180-gram, hand-thrown, colored swirl vinyl, each copy unique in its coloring and design, with one of five different silk-screened cover art prints signed and numbered by artist Nevada Hill. Each vinyl LP will also include a CD-R of the full album.
A trailer video for the Record Store Day release, which is here, shows the making of the vinyl records, from cutting the master to coloring the vinyl to hand-stamping the tracklist on each sleeve. The trailer video also includes the full-length debut of a new track from the album, "Relief." Still images of the colored vinyl and different silk-screened sleeves are available here.
Rubble Guts & BB Eye will see full release on all formats on May 29 via Good Records Recordings. The album evolved from a series of song demos DeLaughter wrote and recorded in early 2009, which Karnats, his former Tripping Daisy bandmate, fell for just as the pair were preparing to work on new music together. DeLaughter and Karnats recorded the nine-song album at sessions in Chicago, Dallas, and at a backwoods cabin outside of Memphis that they transformed into a functioning studio.
Anyone plan to pick up this item during the Record Store Day festivities?
