2015 Record Store Day: Guide to Rock + Metal
Over the past month or so some details have been revealed about the 2015 edition of Record Store Day, which will take place on April 18. We know that Dave Grohl is the official ambassador for the annual event that celebrates independent record stores with special exclusive releases available in those stores. And now we know more about the specialty platters en route.
Some of the releases that have already been announced include Metallica's No Life 'Til Leather demo on cassette, the new track "When the Stillness Comes" from Slayer on 7" picture disc, the Stone Sour covers EP Meanwhile in Burbank and the 12" picture disc "Atlanta" from Mastodon.
The entire list of releases has now been unveiled via the Record Store Day website. When it comes to rock and metal, you'll be able to buy Foo Fighters' Songs From the Laundry Room 10" with two demo versions, a cover of the '80s classic "Kids in America" and a previously unreleased song.
There's also the 45 RPM double LP of GWAR's third studio album America Must Be Destroyed with pop-up album art, a 7" of In This Moment's "Sex Metal Barbie," The Devil Wears Prada's "South of the City" on 7" colored vinyl and many more. Here's a list of rock and metal releases for Record Store Day:
