'YELLOW LEADER' ALBUM UPDATE'
20th JANUARY 2015
Captain Oi! mainman Mark Brennan has provided T&M with an exclusive update on the long awaited brand new studio album from the U.K. Subs.
There will be a variety of formats released but the main release, which will be the Hardback CD, is due for delivery to Captain Oi! in the last week of January.
Expect it to be made available online at the Captain Oi! website sometime between 26 January and 7 February. An exact date will be finalised and announced soon.
The initial vinyl release will see 250 copies of a strictly limited edition Picture Disc housed in the uniform sleeve that ‘Work In Progress’ and ‘XXIV’ came in, this is due at the same time as the above mentioned Hardback CD.
Captain Oi! have also received from the manufacturer some promo CDs and these will be mailed out to reviewers later this week.
Toward the end of February Captain Oi! are hoping to take delivery of a coloured gatefold vinyl version and there will also be a 2 track yellow vinyl flexi disc featuring ‘Sin City Blues’ and ‘Rebellion Song’, neither of which will appear on the vinyl versions of the album due to running time restrictions.
On previous releases Mark added that “…on the ‘XXIV’ Hardback CD version we are down to the last box of 20 copies of the 2000 pressing. Once these are gone the CD will revert to a standard jewel case version without the bonus acoustic tracks. Vinyl wise, on ‘XXIV’ we have 18 copies of the Blue vinyl version and only 3 copies of the Black vinyl version. On the Picture Discs we have 60 of ‘XXIV’ and 48 of ‘Work In Progress’...”
Therefore, anyone wanting copies of any of the above would be strongly advised to order ASAP as once they are gone they will not be repressed.
Another T&M Exclusive!
