Alexisonfire Announce New Pressing Of Their Vinyl Discography Box Set

Alexisonfire have made their announcement and it is a second pressing of their extensive discography box set which quickly sold out on its initial run. The band said of that:

“We are doing a 2nd Edition of the AOF box set.

It’s slightly smaller than the original press and it’s a bit cheaper. It contains all of the studio albums on beautiful 180 gram 2xLP’s. The first press will remain nice and rare and special for all the psychopaths who got up early on Christmas Day to buy it; in all sincerity, that was amazing and we love you for that.

So this is a good way to get all the AOF LP’s in one shot but lets say you hate Dog’s Blood or Crisis (pfft, we all know you love crisis. Clearly the best AOF record…) and you don’t want them…you’re in luck because all of our albums will be pressed individually and sold a la carte. They will also be available in your local independent record stores near the end of the summer, should you feel the need to be charitable to a dying part of what was once a vibrant and profitable music industry. Lots of love – George.

ALEXISONFIRE – BOX SET (2nd Edition) INFO:

- Available for pre-order begining today
- Will begin shipping in August 2014
