In addition to all the exciting new releases listed by Billy Gil
in the Albums Out Jan 22nd Amoeblog
(immediately below this) there is also a new vinyl release by alt-metal kings the Deftones
(pictured left) being released today. It is a vinyl version of the longtime hard rocking NorCal band's current Koi No Yokan
album that dropped a couple of months ago on CD and, most agree, is a return to form for the band that ruled things in their sphere of metal back in the 90's.
The new vinyl format of Koi No Yokan
, being released by Warner Brothers
, is a limited edition (3,000 units) pressing in 140-gram black vinyl. There are some other exclusive pressings too including an international edition (import) of the record that is being pressed up a on 180-gram vinyl configuration. The CD version of Koi No Yokan
is still readily available at Amoeba and worth picking up. The Sacramento
band's seventh studio album, it debuted at No. 11 on the Billboard Top 200
chart when it was released November 13th and was equally popular at Amoeba for such songs as its first single "Tempest" (lyrics video below). In support of Koi No Yokan
are currently gearing up for a spring headlining tour of the East Coast, the South, and Canada that spans the whole month of March. No West Coast dates announced as of yet but check out the Deftones
' official band website
for updates on that.
