Blink-182 Bring Out Another Round of Vinyl Reissues
Published Jan 20, 2016In case you couldn't get your old tape player working a few months back when three-headed fart joke Blink-182 brought their back catalogue back out on cassette, the pop-punk crew have announced another round of vinyl reissues that will land this spring.
While bassist Mark Hoppus and drummer Travis Barker are apparently working on new material with semi-recently instated guitarist Matt Skiba instead of founder Tom DeLonge, SRC Vinyl will soon deliver a new round of re-releases.
This includes a reissue of the band's 1997 major label debut Dude Ranch, the power pop-flecked mainstream breakthrough Enema of the State from 1999, a repress of concert set The Mark, Tom and Travis Show (The Enema Strikes Back!), and another for 2003's self-titled collection.
Each release is being pressed up on 180-gram black vinyl and comes packaged in a gatefold jacket with a booklet and "unique centre labels." It's added that the Dude Ranch release also comes with postcards.
In a bit of an anachronistic move, the records are being served up out of order, with Enema of the State landing first on March 28. The Dude Ranch reissue comes out May 30, while the self-titled album arrives June 13 and the live album closes out the SRC campaign on June 20.
While, true, there have been a few different vinyl release of each of these records, even the most recent versions prior to the SRC represses command high prices on resale sites like Discogs.
A 2010 press of Dude Ranch that came out on Mightier than Sword, for instance, can set you back about $90, while a 2014 repress on clear vinyl with brown and yellow spatter is being offered up at about $100.
