To commemorate the 25th anniversary of a little known melodic punk rock band’s debut album called “Sumo Surprise” (that band being GHOTI HOOK) UnoriginalVinyl and Tooth & Nail Records are putting out a limited Vinyl Pressing. UnoriginalVinyl has carefully and tastefully recreated the artwork, packaged it together with some thoughtful elements, remastering handled by Troy Glessner of Spectre Studios, and available in 2 different variants. One variant will have 500 copies and the other one, believe it or not, will have just 50 limited copies available! Both vinyl variants are ready to ship starting tomorrow. I (Brandon Jones) even wrote a special essay that is being included with the vinyl and it’s something I am truly excited to be a part of. This was one of those 90’s bands that you just couldn’t help but cheer on. True Underdogs and great at their craft, wowing just about everyone with their very first album right out of the gate. The “Sumo Surprise” Vinyl goes on sale Thursday at 10am PST. Click here for the T&N Store and be sure to push “refresh”. Full details below. Ghoti Hook x 1996 x Forever
