RECORD STORE DAY 2016 AMBASSADOR METALLICA

We're pretty excited to announce that the Ambassador for Record Store Day 2016 is not one person, but four: the four who make up METALLICA.
From the very first Record Store Day, Metallica have embraced the concept, and celebrated the culture of the indie record store with in-store appearances and special releases for both our special April Saturday and Black Friday.   Be sure to check out the Ambassador Statement, written by drummer Lars Ulrich, and the video where the entire band gets excited about record stores and exciting Metallica reissue news.

For Record Store Day 2016, the band's official release is a special live CD, Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité, Metallica! - Live at Le Bataclan. Paris, France - June 11th, 2003, a live concert recording from the Paris theatre that became the focus of the world in November 2015. This release, and the charitable donation of its proceeds to Fondation de France’s Give For France charity, fits into a larger theme for Record Store Day 2016 that highlights the relationship between US record stores and their French counterparts, between Record Store Day and Disquaire Day, between music-and-arts-loving humans in the United States, France and the world. More details to come.

VINYL TUESDAY

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.


COMING TO RECORD STORES ON TUESDAY JUNE 14th!

GOODIES

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 6/10 BAND OF HORSES 
Get a regionally-specific litho with the purchase of WHY ARE YOU OK at participating stores, while they last. On CD and Vinyl.
