So… What a year it has been! I never could have imagined how amazing 2013 would end up being. Good and bad, highs and lows, I’ve had a bast working with some amazing musicians! The first half of 2014 is starting to take shape and I’m excited to bring you up to speed on what it’s going to look like! LET’S DO IT!
Of Us Giants “Nova Scotia” LP
FFO: Balance & Composure & Manchester Orchestra
When we heard that Of Us Giants’ new album, “Nova Scotia” was in danger of not seeing a vinyl release due to issue beyond their home label’s control, Fly The Light, along with Close To Home and Songs From The Road, decided to pitch in and see the album through. We’re happy to announce that the pre-orders for this fantastic album are in progress right now and available in our store. We will be the exclusive carrier of the Coke Bottle Clear variant. Bundle packs are all sold out at the moment, but keep your ears to the ground because Santa just might drop a few more in a couple of our stores. Whether you buy a copy from us or from one of these other awesome labels, support this amazing band. These dudes work incredibly hard and have created an album that will be sure to top more than a few end of 2014 Album of the Year lists.
CHRIS STAPLES “Blackest Hair, Bluest Eyes” 10th Anniversary LP
The 10th anniversary of this amazing album is fast approaching! To celebrate such an amazing release, as well as the man behind it, we’re teaming up with Something To Break Records (wonder where he got that name from? Hint: pictured above…) and Chris Staples himself to release an incredibly limited, deluxe 180 gram edition for those hardcore Staples fans. This album goes into production the moment the plants reopen for 2014! BUT WE HAVE A FAVOR TO ASK!
We want to create an insert for the release that is completely comprised of images that fans and friends have of Chris and stories that go along with them. The photos and their explanations will be included on either side of the insert! If you would like to help us in our attempt to collect the best, most amazing stories and images, shoot me an email at FlyTheLightRecords@gmail.com .
DEAD SOLDIERS “All The Things You Lose” 2xLP
The guys and gal of Dead Soldiers are closing 2013 with a pair of shows; one was last night for Lucero’s annual Family Christmas and the last one will be New Year’s Eve at The Hi Tone with The Sheiks and Jack Oblivian. We have the whiskey amber color variant of the Dead Soldiers 2xLP available at these shows. The clear and black variants will be in first of the year, so if you’re wondering where your preorder is, it’s closer than you might think! We want to thank all of you for pre-ordering and can’t wait to see you in 2014!
Have a happy holidays and be sure to stay tuned, as we will be announcing more preorders and amazing releases in the next month!
