Lust Control, featuring former HM Magazine owner and editor Doug Van Pelt, has announced a Kickstarter to print their popular album, Tiny Little Dots, on 180g vinyl.

Remastered by Rob Colwell for the release, it also features an alternate cover, other limited editions of the release, and one option that also includes a record player.

The Kickstarter closes in a little over a week.

“This is unfinished business for us,” says Gene (aka Van Pelt). “This album was originally planned for vinyl release but for one reason or another that did not happen. We’re trying to make that right.”

Featuring 13 tracks, Tiny Little Dots is Lust Control’s heaviest release and shows the bands evolution from old-school punk (Fear, Flipper, Sex Pistols) to a more metal sound.

Tiny Little Dots was co-produced by Paul Q-Pek, who contributed one of his own tracks, the first single, “Make Money and Die.” Follow-up singles include the lead-off track, “Finger,” which finds the band lyrically traversing the in-your-face topic of sexuality from a biblical viewpoint. The title track breaks down the fantasy of pornography in a more subtle way, emphasizing the illusion of the printed page or digital screen.

“I can’t wait to hear tunes like the creepy, chiming metallic riffage of ‘SHEEPEATER,’ Gene said. Look for the alternative cover in the liner notes insert, which features a street-level and duct tape nod to Christian metal pioneers, Stryper, who were forced to design an alternate cover for its multi-platinum release, To Hell with the Devil.
