    Why does every goddamn band need to be cryptic. JUST TELL US DAMMIT.

    Matches never got their fair shake. I went and saw them in NYC for their few off reunion shows a couple years ago for Decomposer and it was great but even given those circumstances it wasn't a sell out.

    if I know these guys (and I do), don't expect this vinyl to be the only thing they announce regarding A Band In Hope...excited!

    A Band In Hope has always been severely underrated, really fantastic album

    I’m so torn.

    I have Decomposuer and E Von Dahl on vinyl so I want to get this just to complete the collection.... but with shipping it’s $48! This isn’t even a record I love like the previous two- I just like it. Hmm...

    Edit: I ordered it ha

    I also don’t love it as much as the first two BUT I snatched up a copy anyway.

    The way the Matches do these vinyl reissues definitely isn’t for the casual fan - all the bonus stuff and the extremely limited pressings would support that - since they obviously do things sporadically since they all have other jobs and stuff now.

    THAT SAID, $40 is kinda steep as a starting price but I think it’s consistent with E Von Dahl and Decomposer’s reissue prices as well...

    I put all their albums on about an equal plane. I missed Decomposer when they pressed it and I’ve been bummed about it since, especially bc I want those demos really bad. If I have $50 to spare before this sells out, maybe I’ll throw it their way. Again, mostly really interested in hearing those demos.

    I’m still hanging on to that one. I haven’t even seen Decomposer for sale secondhand since it sold out. Long shot, but if there’s any chance you’d be willing to share those demos/b-sides that came with it, I’d really love to hear them.

    just checked my email and it looks like I deleted the link they sent me, my laptop is in the shop atm but I can see if I have them on there when I get it back

    That would be seriously awesome, thank you. This band was so formative for me and I would seriously be so stoked to hear both the Decomposer and ABIH outtakes. I think this band is the whole reason I even discovered AbsolutePunk.

    Hahah yeah dude I feel that. It definitely is but the bonus album does sound interesting and I budget myself for a few records per month so between this and the Closure in Moscow’s First Temple pressing- I am done for the month of February already lol.

    Yeah and these are quality pressings too (judging off the previous reissues I got) so fuck it. I grew up with the band (they’re from my hometown) going to L3 shows and whatnot so I’m glad I got it.

    If this was $60-75 before tax though? Hell no to that ha

    They did the same thing as they did for the Decomposuer reissue where the bonus album is (digitally) just one track- lame. One of these days I’ll have to break it up by track myself. Kind of annoying.
