In an attempt to get me to use as many apostrohpes as I could in a headline, Josh Scogin and his new band, ’68, are now taking pre-orders for a second 7″ vinyl printing of the Midnight EP. Managing Editor Rob Houston explains:

“So after an hour of Velvet Press’s website being overloaded with a zillion people trying to order ’68’s debut 7”, Midnight, I finally got my hands on one, though many fans did not because they were at school or work or could never get past the checkout page. Josh’s good friend, “Chris No Sleep,” the owner of No Sleep Records, loved the 7″ so much, he asked if he could do a second pressing of the 7″ with a Nirvana Bleach-era tribute alternate cover.”

Move fast! Who knows how long these will be available.

Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
