Rock + Metal Guide to 2019’s Record Store Day Black Friday Releases
While you may be saving up for the Christmas rush, you might want to set aside some extra dough to add to your vinyl collection. That's because Record Store Day is back with its annual Black Friday promotion.
While Record Store Day typically happens in the spring, recent years have seen a wealth of vinyl treasures also surface for a second Record Store Day promotion taking place on Black Friday. This year, that comes on Nov. 29, and the Record Store Day website has just issued a listing of specialty items that will be made available that day.
For rock and metal fans, some of the highlights include a 7" vinyl split single of Slipknot's "All Out Life" and "Unsainted." Pearl Jam fans might want to pick up the LP edition of the band's 1992 MTV Unplugged performance. Tenacious D also have a "blue series" 7" vinyl with the tracks "Don't Blow It" and "Kage."
You'll also find items from Alice Cooper, Sebastian Bach, Black Label Society, Altitudes & Attitude, Dio, Sublime, Jinjer and plenty more. We've highlighted some of the rock and metal releases below, but you can also check here for the entire list.
