The original plan to press the album in vinyl format 3 years ago was halted by the dissolution of Pledgemusic, the crowdfunding site we used, which led to non-collection of over $5,000 worth of pledges from music fans for the production of Love in The Land of Rubber Shoes & Dirty Ice Cream (15th Anniversary Edition).

The plan to self-fund was also deterred with the onset of the pandemic.
Fast forward to late 2021, our journalist friend Rick Olivares offered to extend a hand and be the executive producer for the vinyl project which led to a partnership with Plaka Express. This time, instead of a 1 LP release, the album will be a double LP!
Designed by Everywhere We Shoot, the packaging will be a gatefold sleeve with a four-page folding insert complete with lyrics, never-before printed photos, and an introductory article/liner notes written by Rick Olivares.
The 12-track double LP is expected to arrive 3rd quarter of 2022. We will announce reservation and pre-order details soon! Limited copies only.
In the meantime, you can stream Love in the Land of Rubber Shoes & Dirty Ice Cream on Spotify.
