East of the Wall - The Apologist 2xLP Preorder is Live!

We're just cranking out the vinyl here at Antithetic Records.  This time it is the new East of the Wall album "The Apologist" as a deluxe 180 gram 2xLP. Here are the details:

-Limited to 500 copies and are all 180 gram.
-3 colorways to choose from: Black /100 Hand Numbered, Black & Clear mix /150 and Black, Clear & Gold mix /250.
-Matte finished gatefold jackets with spot metallic ink
-Poly lined inner sleeves and sealed poly outer bag.
-Artwork by Doe Eyed design, who has been responsible for all of the East of the Wall album art (and they nailed it yet again)

The style of the artwork is fantastic, and the vinyl colors will match the aesthetic nicely.  The album was recorded and mixed by Andrew Schneider (Cave In, Pelican, Keelhaul, Rosetta, Made Out Of Babies), and mastered for vinyl by Nick Zampiello (Converge, Cave In, Junius, Keelhaul, Red Chord)  The stamping masters were cut from high resolution 24bit / 96kHz audio files.  These high res versions of the songs simply blow away the digital mix.  You have to hear it to believe it!  Every instrument is so much more detailed, it makes you smile just listening to it.  This is why they still press vinyl!!  These have an official release date of October 26, but will be shipping before this date.  Along with the album, every purchase will get you a chance to win our preorder giveaway!  This time we're offering up a signed test press of the album, and the band will send you a personalized email with a link to demos from The Apologist recording sessions.  There will be two winners.  Good luck!!  Remember, you get a chance to win for every item in your cart as long as you've bought one copy of this album, so head on over to the store and pick up a copy today.

We've got the Terzij de Horde vinyl preorder going, as well as all 3 colors of the Kayo Dot Stained Glass 12" still in stock, among others.  Thanks for your support!  Remember to go see East of the Wall on tour this fall:

  1. Anybody get their copy of The Apologist yet? I placed my order a couple weeks ago, but haven't seen or heard anything about whether or when it shipped.
