Help Failures' Union press Sinker on vinyl

Posted by on Fri, Jan 29, 2010 at 12:00 PM

Failures' Union recently released their second album, In What Way on Paper + Plastick. It's a pretty darn all right piece of college rock, and worth checking out if you get the chance. The band does the whole mid-'90s alternative thing really well, to the point of getting Angie Hart of Frente! to do guest vocals on "Cubist Camo" and "The Fall Man."

Paper + Plastick is a vinyl and digital label, so In What Way is readily available on LP. Their first album, Sinker, never got released on vinyl, however.

One Percent Press released the album as a CD. We always wanted to put it out as an LP as well, but since we were never a full-time band and lacked the funding, the timing never seemed right.

Over the past year things have changed, and the band has become a priority for the members. Paper & Plastick released our new album "In What Way." We also have been touring a lot more, and are even going to be heading to the United Kingdom for two weeks in the spring to play. Now we want to put "Sinker" out on vinyl more than ever, but we need your help.

We are going to be pressing the LP at Pirates Press to ensure a quality product, and the project will cost a little over $2500. We are hoping to raise $2000 for the project with your generous help, and we will pay for the rest out of our pocket.

You can donate at the Kickstarter page for the project.
