Okay, technically All About Friends and the impending sequel, All About Friends Forever, will see issue and reissue as a double LP with hand-screened covers in May if a Kickstarter for the comps is funded. Said Kickstarter is located right here, and works exactly the way we like our crowd-sourced fundraising to: plenty of ways to get extras, but if you just want to treat this a pre-order for the 2xLP, you pay $30 and get it, plus booklet and digital download – postage paid and everything. Pledge another $15, and get a t-shirt.
You get classic, otherwise unavailable tracks from Coalesce, Botch, and Indecision, as well as some really badass photos on the original comp, then the new collection introduces you to a slew of bands with whom I’m completely unfamiliar. The reissue’s limited to a pressing of 1000, with 333 on colored vinyl (you get that for $65, plus a t-shirt and a poster). For more details about the whole project, check out an interview with compilation organizer Carrie Whitney at the comp’s Tumblr page.
