Metal innovators Deftones have something today for all their fans with record players. Really, for just 5,500 of their fans, to be precise.
The group will be releasing a couple different vinyl iterations of their most recent effort, 2012’s Koi No Yokan, today. Fans have their pick of three offerings (though you just know a handful of people are going to get all three, because they’re insufferable completists like that):
- The standard retail version pressed on 140-gram black vinyl (3,000 copies)
- The direct to consumer version that boasts 180-gram black vinyl with foil-stamped, numbered jackets (1,000 copies)
- The Hot Topic exclusive version pressed on 140-gram clear vinyl (1,500 copies)
Jesus vinyl nerds, pick your slack jaws off the floor. And wipe up of that pool of saliva. I know this is cool but keep your composure.
