DS Record Radar: This Week in Punk Vinyl (Rancid, Sum 41, The Dwarves & More)

Greetings, and welcome to the Dying Scene Record Radar. If it’s your first time here, thank you for joining us! This is the weekly* column where we cover all things punk rock vinyl; new releases, reissues… you name it, we’ve probably got it. Kick off your shoes, pull up a chair, crack open a cold one, and break out those wallets, because it’s go time. Let’s get into it!

Check out the video edition of this week’s Record Radar, presented by our friends at Punk Rock Radar:

Rancid’s Indestructible turns 20 this year and gets a Double LP anniversary reissue to mark the occasion. Get it on “Red w/ Black Galaxy” colored vinyl here.

Good news/bad news for my fellow Mighty Mighty Bosstones appreciators. Good news: Let’s Face It is being repressed for the first time in 7 years. Bad news: That shit sold out in like a day. No clue how many copies were pressed on this new red & white splatter variant, but I gots mine. Sorry if you missed out, maybe bookmark this page or something and hope for a restock?

Universal also threw up a bunch of new pressings of old Sum 41 records on their store. Head over here to get All Killer No Filler, Does This Look Infected? & the All the Good Shit compilation (first time on vinyl for this one btw) on some purdy new color variants. They just released a pretty dogshit new single as well, but let’s not talk about that.

New release alert! The Dwarves have a new album on the way. Concept Album is due out November 3rd; there are a bunch of variants (colors, alternate cover art, autographed, etc.) up for pre-order on their webstore. Check out the music video for the lead single:

Another anniversary reissue, Millencolin’s Machine 15 celebrates its 15th birthday this year. This is the album’s first time on vinyl since its original release in 2008. There are 300 copies on clear wax (buy here), 700 on silver (SOLD OUT), and 1,000 on clear & blue mix colored vinyl (buy here).

Here’s another one the Record Radar is late to the party on because I’m fucking lazy and have only been doing these bi-weekly lately. I like cataloging this shit though so I’ll mention it anyways. The long awaited reissue of Reel Big Fish’s breakout album Turn the Radio Off has arrived and all 5 color variants sold out in like an hour, even the grossly overpriced AP Magazine Exclusive variant! I’m a degenerate so I set an alarm and snagged the pink & yellow splatter one like a minute after pre-orders went live.

Fat Mike’s Bottles to the Ground Records has some new records out this week, including a new 10” EP from Doom Scroll + the first-ever vinyl release of their debut album Immoral Compass. Get ‘em both here. And just look at those variants!

Ramonescore appreciators, do not sleep on the new Bad Secret record, out now on Hey Pizza! Records. Check out a few awesome songs below and get Land Over on pink colored wax here.

Would it really be the Record Radar if we didn’t talk about some new Bad Religion pressings? Absolutely not! On tap this week is some new color variants for New Maps of Hell (very underrated album, in my opinion) and The Dissent of Man. New Maps has a new red/black variant exclusive to the band’s US store, and Dissent has two new variants: green/blue (US store) and “Skull Gold” (EU store).

Very good news! After being stuck in the purgatory of licensing hell for years, Porterhouse Records’ green vinyl reissue of ALL’s Pummel has been pressed and is shipping! I pre-ordered my copy a little over a year ago and was thrilled to get the shipping notification the other day. They still have some copies in stock; head over to the label’s webstore and get yours. This is sure to be a bitchin’ reissue and for $17 you’d be an idiot to pass on it.

Last up on this week’s column is a brand new album from Neck Deep, due out early next year on Hopeless Records. Check out a few tracks from the band’s upcoming self-titled LP below and go here for links to all the places you can get the ultra-limited color variants.

Well, that’s all, folks. Another Record Radar in the books. As always, thank you for tuning in. If there’s anything we missed (highly likely), or if you want to let everyone know about a new/upcoming vinyl release you’re excited about, leave us a comment below, or send us a message on Facebook or Instagram, and we’ll look into it. Enjoy your weekend, and don’t blow too much money on spinny discs (or do, I’m not your father). See ya next week!
