* Vinyl Tuesday is a way for us to encourage artists, labels, distributors and managers to continue to release physical music on Tuesdays when they can. This allows physical retailers to have something fresh to sell and to talk about during the week, and lets those releases not just get lost on the increasingly crowded Friday/weekend.
IN RECORD STORES ON TUESDAY JULY 28!
TITUS ANDRONICUS - The Most Lamentable Tragedy "It’s rare that an artist demands this much of his audience. It’s even more rare that the demand lead to anything anywhere near this rewarding." -Stereogum

Sometimes there are even better reasons to get your music at an indie record store, and those times are when you get a little something extra along with your new record. The goodies below are available starting on street date with the purchase of the new release they are listed with, but they’re ALL LIMITED QUANTITY, so first come first serve applies. Also, indie stores are just that: independently minded, and not all will choose to participate in all these gift-giving promotions, so check with your local store!
STREET DATE 7/24 ROGER WATERS - AMUSED TO DEATH The 2015 updated, remastered editions come with a limited edition lithograph, with purchase, while supplies last. (DISCLAIMER) (FIND IT AT A RECORD STORE - CD, BOX SET WITH BLU-RAY, PICTURE DISC VINYL)
