Not necessarily a “review” of a record, this is to give y’all the headsup that the long-awaited and rumored re-release of Coheed and Cambria‘s Second Stage Turbine Blade LP is here. For pre-orders at least. Back in October, I did a run-through of the band’s discography including SSTB which had been only available as an import and out of print for quite some time. It has been repressed and here are the details:
SSTB EXCLUSIVE LIMITED-EDITION VINYL/POSTER/VIP BUNDLE
The Second Stage Turbine Blade (Original Studio Recording) – now available on vinyl in the US for the very first time!!!

Click here for the direct link at MerchNow to order. Be warned though, the pre-order went live today at 12noon EST and it took some people close to 1 hour to place their orders after system/page errors and re-loading. I guess MerchNow underestimated the traffic their servers encountered. Coheed fanboys and fangirls are hardcore that way. They crash servers. Ha!
But if you don’t want to be bothered with all the extra stuff and just want the vinyl itself, Amazon has it available for pre-orders as well. Click here then for just the vinyl.
