Hello. I’m happy to announce the first official vinyl pressing of Rufio’s debut album Perhaps, I Suppose…. This project was a lot of fun to be a part of and I’m grateful to TMG and Rufio for allowing me to give this record a breath of life 10 years after its initial release. It remains one of my favorites, and hopefully it will be a welcomed addition to your collection.

Here are the details…sorry for being extremely long winded:

Packaging

- The Jacket is printed on chipboard stock giving it a natural look matching the tan color of the original cover art. Chipboard jackets are 24pt stock, so it is slightly thicker than the standard 20pt of most 2 panel jackets.

- A full lyric insert is included with a personal message from lead singer Scott Sellers thanking all of you for celebrating Rufio’s most heralded album once again.

- Each record is standard 140 gram vinyl with 3 color labels.

Pressing Info

- 1000 copies (including band/label/retail promos) were pressed.

- 250 copies on Opaque Red will be available from Hot Topic (if you hate SRC)

- 200 copies on Clear will be available from SRC (if you hate Hot Topic)

- 250 copies on Black will be available at worldwide indie record stores (if you hate the establishment)

- And finally, 300 copies will be available from my webstore. I am dubbing this as the “Lost Boys Edition”. This variant has a black/red striped pattern inspired by the Hook character Rufio’s gnarly hairstyle. These copies will include a bonus 7” in a full color glue pocket with the demo versions of Above Me and Road to Recovery. This will be $17.99, with the other variants carrying a $16.99 SRP.

- These quantities of course are inexact since some will be for promotional use.

Release Date

- The copies at www.companyinkrecords.com will be available on Monday 4/2 at 12PM Pacific. You won’t see them now, but the URL will go directly to the webstore by that time. I will ship internationally, and will get all orders out next day.

- Travis/Jenna can advise more on when their copies will be available for sale in the coming week or so I’d assume. I’m getting them their records early next week.

- Indie retail copies will be available on Record Store Day.

Tests

- 10 total tests were pressed for this. I will again be auctioning off 5 copies in screened sleeves. 100% of the proceeds are going to The Wounded Warrior Project. I will not use “mission fish” this time to ensure the donation is as large as possible. I’ll post a scan of the receipt for transparency. The 2 highest bids will also get 7” tests, for which only 4 copies were made. The additional tests will not be sold by me, ever.

FAQ

-Will this be available through Banquet? Yes. SRC will be able to supply clear copies to Banquet.

- Will any copies make it elsewhere in Europe or to Australia? Yes. The black versions will be available through a few stores / sites. I will post them when orders are placed. If you have one in particular you want covered PM me.

- You call yourself a label, all you do is license shit! I agree, I’m really just a guy. More of a distributor than a label at this point. Totally different game and I would never claim anyone I work with as “my artist”. Far more difficult to start from scratch.

- 1000 of these? Good luck selling ‘em! Let me worry about that. A lot of good can come from a round number of 1K and allows me to include more retailers and territories, and hopefully deters a flipper or two.

- Do you know how to pack a record properly?!?! Yes.

- $16.99 for a single LP? Fuck you! I’m sorry. My goal on this is to break even and have a little money left to advance for a new release. I have taken zero dollars thus far from Company Ink and remain a one man army. I try to lock in deals with fair royalties (usually impossible) and put as much money into quality of the record, so I hope it’s worth your dough.

THE END. Thanks for reading this; I’ll answer any questions if somehow more exist.

I just want the 3 song EP that followed this. That shit rips.

Blast from the past! New pressing going up tomorrow via Take This to Heart / Parting Gift records.    http://takethistoheartrecords.limitedrun.com/products/688996-rufio-perhaps-i-suppose

I hope mcmlxxxv follows finally

that hook inspired rufio hair variant is soooo fucking beautiful. well done company ink. is this your second official release?

also, love the FAQ. other labels/distros should learn from you and take a page out of your book on how to run their businesses.

i expect this one to go off without a hitch, just like the NFG release.
