WIFE’s ‘Pipe Candy’ returns to vinyl

Preorders / September 27, 2014

Pipe Candy, the 2011 12″ record from WIFE, is now available again on vinyl through Mind Over Matter Records. The outfit features Nick Steinhardt (Touche Amore) and Andrew Thomas (Vow), while the pressing will be limited to 250 copies on 180-gram half clear and half yellow vinyl. You can see some more details below:

“Pipe Candy” was originally self-released by the duo in 2011 to much acclaim and has since gone out of print. We wanted to bring the album back and accomplish two things:
1.) To keep the original high level of standard set on the original pressing by utilizing Stoughton printing for the tip-on gatefold jackets as well as Pirates Press for the 180g vinyl pressing
2.) To add the MOMR flair that we do every release.
For the latter, we opted to add what we are calling a “spine cap” which is a piece of 100lb french paper (banana yellow, to match the vinyl pressing color) that was individually die-cut and screen printed before being assembled. It slips over the spine edge of the record, giving it an extra bit of detail, and also giving us a spot to hand-number the record without detracting from the gorgeous artwork curated by Mr. Steinhardt.

You can sample the band below. The first pressing through Deathwish is now sold out. Expect these to ship out in mid to late October.
