To celebrate the 10 Year Anniversary, We are making Decomposer available on vinyl. But, not just a normal vinyl release… This is a double gatefold, with the 1st disc being Decomposer (On Black Vinyl) as you know it and the 2nd disc (On Opaque Blue) being called “Precomposer”, which is a mixtape of demos that would become Decomposer. Also included is a 20 Page Precomposer (De)Composition Book, filled with pages of Shawn’s lyrics, notes and Art from the creation of Decomposer. Enter the world of the creative process that is The Matches. These are limited to 500 and are numbered and signed. Upon order, you will automatically receive a digital version of Precomposer to enjoy as you wait for the vinyl. Please be patient as the manufacturing of vinyl is out of our control and we anticipate it to ship by August.
For anyone that bought E. Von Dahl Killed The Locals, you know these sell out quick and aren’t pressed again (check Ebay)… We are so pleased to bring this to you and thankful to Epitaph Records for letting us make this special version of Decomposer just for you.
