Look Mexico has launched a Kickstarter to repress a pair of early EPs, So Byzantine and The Crucial, on vinyl; the EPs, released in 2005 and 2006 respectively, have been out of print for some time. From the page:

“This kickstarter is raising money so we, the 4 musicians and 1 manager involved in Look Mexico, can put out So Crucialtine. In the 6/7 years since the EPs were released, one of the most constant questions we have been asked is when will they be available on vinyl. Kickstarter has given us a platform to be able to put them out with the help of our friends and fans, as opposed to letting a label handle it. All of the money invested will go to the production of the LP, which will include both the “So Byzantine” EP and “the Crucial EP,” as well as a few remixes. The original artist will be re-imagining and updating his work, and we will have a few other goodies in it as well.”

Check out the campaign here. Look Mexico last released Real Americans Spear It in 2011 via Adeline.

Position: Former Web Editor HQ: Orlando, FL (soon to be Cleveland, OH) Nice to meet you! I'm Bryne Yancey, the former web editor for Alternative Press. Prior to joining AP full-time, I volunteered at Punknews.org and freelanced for Myspace Music and AP, writing reviews and such.  I enjoy 80s thrash metal, leather-jacket pop-punk, obscure 90s/2000s emo, contemporary crust-core, and plenty in between. I'm a big fan of pizza, nachos, dessert, sleeveless t-shirts, wearing shorts year-round, sunglasses, science fiction, dry humor, horror, the Florida Marlins, the Orlando Magic, the Jacksonville Jaguars, and the Tampa Bay Lightning. Vinyl is great; Spotify is equally and differently great. Green Day's "Dookie," Bad Religion's "All Ages," and the Suicide Machines' "Battle Hymns" changed my life. I don't think our scene has ever been as exciting or promising as it is right now. Top ten albums OF ALL TIME (but in no particular order): Saves The Day - Stay What You Are Green Day - Warning Jimmy Eat World - Futures Snapcase - Designs For Automotion Hot Water Music - Caution Metallica - ...And Justice For All The Suicide Machines - Battle Hymns Bad Religion - The Process of Belief The Lawrence Arms - The Greatest Story Ever Told Descendents - ALL Twitter | Tumblr
