    Thrice have announced they’ll be re-issuing The Alchemy Index on vinyl. Sales begin this Friday.

    We're excited to announce that TAI is being released on vinyl again. The original pressing is one of the best pieces we ever put out & the reissue is a step up with gold foil & new colors. We couldn’t be happier with it. Available Friday at 10am PT at

    Do I want? Yeahhhhhh. Can I afford? Probably not. Looks like it will be a very pretty setup though.

    Wanting to ask my fiancee to get this for me for Christmas, but without knowing the price I'm a little hesitant to put that pressure on her. Add in the insane shipping to Canada and exchange rate I know it'll be crazy.

    Gorgeous but yeah I'm afraid of what the cost will be to Canada. But I can't resist. Been on my wish list forever. One of my white whales along with Beggars.

    Gold foil with new colors, and it appears a shirt and a slipmat... I'd wager close to $100 for this (if only available as a bundle). I think the original pressing was in the $60-$70 range?

    I'd add, for a while I went by the rule that I wouldn't buy records I already owned the CD of...but I've totally broken that a few times now, with Vheissu being the first example. So why not this too.

  16. This is wildly tempting, but it's money I shouldn't be spending on what is possibly my least favorite Thrice release. (That's relatively speaking, of course, since Thrice is my favorite band, but still...)
