With November less than a month away, Record Store Day has a few surprises in store for Black Friday 2020. RSD has announced a slew of rare releases from artists including My Chemical Romance, Alice In Chain, Beastie Boys and more.
For the special day, MCR fans will finally have the chance to get their hands on an exclusive vinyl of one classic album.
Due to coronavirus, Record Store Day was spread out across August, September and October this year. Although the music industry is facing a crisis amid the pandemic, the three-day event helped boost a lot of local independent record stores nationwide.
Now, Record Store Day is hoping to continue its efforts into November with a special Black Friday release day. Next month, various record stores nationwide are participating in the event and are selling over a hundred rare releases.
Among the RSD Black Friday releases is a limited edition My Chemical Romance vinyl of Life On The Murder Scene. The live album was released back in 2006 and features hits such as “Helena,” “The Ghost Of You” and “I’m Not Okay (I Promise).”
Life On The Murder Scene is being pressed onto a clear 140g 12” vinyl with red splatter for RSD Black Friday. This is the first time the live album has ever been available on vinyl. However, if you want to get your hands on a copy you’ll have to act fast. Only 11,500 vinyl are being pressed worldwide.
According to Rough Trade, the Life On The Murder Scene vinyl retails for around £26.99 ($35) and will be available on Nov. 27.
Record Store Day originally announced the rare vinyl back in April. However, due to the scheduling changes amid the pandemic, the MCR vinyl was never released much to the disappoint of fans.
Along with the MCR vinyl, various other rare releases are heading to your local record stores on Nov. 27. Alice In Chains’ 1992 album SAP is getting released onto 12” vinyl. As well, Beastie Boys’ Some Old Bullshit is getting a rare LP release with only 8000 copies available.
