Record Store Day has announced special releases for this year’s Black Friday.
The actual Record Store Day falls in April, but for the ninth year in a row, organizers have announced the release of rare material almost exclusively on vinyl for Black Friday.
“Since 2010, the organizers of April’s worldwide celebration of the record store, Record Store Day, have worked to shift the perception of Black Friday as a mass-produced, low-as-you-can-go event,” says the press release. It also reads that Record Store Day Black Friday emphasizes “a list of special releases that highlight how great gifts from a record store can be, and celebrating the kick-off of the holiday rush at independently owned neighborhood businesses.”
Amongst the artists who are participating in Record Store Day Black Friday include U2, Sammy Hagar, Cheap Trick, Eric Clapton, Alice Cooper, and Devo.
