The Mars Volta's 'Amputechture' Gets Vinyl Reissue
Published May 07, 2014Vinyl copies of the Mars Volta's 2006 LP Amputechture fetch a pretty penny online, so we've got bad news for record flippers and good news for everyone else: the album is being reissued on June 2 by Music on Vinyl.
This vinyl pressing preserves the original eight-song tracklist. Nearly all of the songs are quite long — three of them stretch over the 11-minute mark — so they are spread across two LPs.
North American copies comes on 180-gram blue vinyl in a run of 1,250. European copies, on the other hand, come on red/gold vinyl in a run of 3,000 with a bonus poster. These are housed in a gatefold sleeve.
Amputechture was the band's third full-length. It was their first album with At the Drive-In cohort Paul Hinojos and their last with drummer Jon Theodore. It features guest guitarist John Frusciante, who was then a member of the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Music on Vinyl will also reissue 2003's De-Loused in the Comatorium on May 19.
Thanks to Modern Vinyl for the tip.
