Ok that wasn't too catchy, but I tried. Bad Timing Records is offering a 20% discount on Acceptance's Phantoms. Use the coupon code "TAKECOVER20" at checkout or click here for it to be applied automatically. BTR002 will be announced and in the label's hands in early December.
The records will be getting to us within the next 2-3 weeks. Like the first pressing, we'll put it up for sale once we have the records in hand, so probably around the third week of September. Here's the pressing info:
White w/ Blue Splatter – 500 units – available in the Bad Timing Records webstore
Solid White – 500 units – available exclusively via Hot Topic
So there it is. See you in a couple weeks.
Seattle Weekly has written an article on Acceptance's vinyl pressing and Bad Timing Records. You can read it here. There is one paragraph that stuck out to me, you can interpret it for yourself.
Following the vinyl’s success, the band is receptive to the idea of a reunion of sorts, though no one seems to want to pull the trigger. The logistics alone are daunting, with members spread across the country, many with families of their own and those full-time jobs.
Soooo... it's looking like Acceptance's Phantoms is coming to vinyl. Take a look at #BTR001 on Twitter & Instagram - severalpeople have posted photos, the hashtag, and lyrics. Seems like we'll find out more on Monday.
I recently interviewed Christian McAlhaney of Anberlin and he had this to say about the possibility of an Acceptance reunion. Look for the full interview early next week.
There’s always been whispers of reunion stuff here and there. Basically, I think Jason is the last person everyone is waiting on. I don’t even know what that would look like or what we would do, I just want to get the dialogue going because it’s been awhile. I think a lot of people would like that, and I would like it too. There was never any closure for the guys in Acceptance. We just said we were done and never played any final shows or anything. There was just never any closure.
