Orange https://descendents.store/product/19352/9th-walnut-lp-orange

Can't wait to take a selfie holding 9th & Walnut on 9th & Walnut.

It was on KIngs Road Merch but hasn't gone live yet.

My first (of way too many) copy showed up today and I gave it a quick spin. Looking forward to spending some more time with it but first impression is that it has a heavy 70s surf rock feel to it and I love it. I think it fits perfectly in between Hectic World / Ride The Wild and the Fat EP or Milo Goes to College. Anyone who wasn’t paying attention to what it was when they ordered this and is expecting a “new” Descendents record will be in for a big surprise.

Coretex has an aqua / 325 and an indie edition electric blue. I think that brings the total up to ten different versions 🥴

To avoid further confusion: it is not /325 but it is "375". "375 Media" is a big distributor and they started some time ago (this year? did not notice it earlier) distributing exclusive variants. It does not represent the pressing number of their variants, afaik.

Thanks for the clarification. Didn’t realize this and was a poor assumption on my part that it was a Core Tex exclusive.

This being the original lineup was the major selling point for me. Their original sound has never really been duplicated that well, but as soon as I heard the first new track, it instantly had that “thing” that I guess only the 4 of these guys in a room together can yield. Can’t wait to spin this!

Gave this a full listen this morning. It’s incredible. I don’t think it really sunk in for me how special this release was until I listened to it front to back. Frank and Tony playing on this is very noticeable. I don’t think I’ve ever heard a band release a “new” record that sounded so close to their roots. It’s really cool that they aren’t trying to mimic a past sound or feel, but that it is a past sound and feel. It’s a perfect pre-cursor to ..College. During the first listen Grudge and Lullaby really stuck out to me. This will be in heavy rotation for me for a long time.
