Is there a new pressing coming out on blue-colored vinyl? Got the red and it was very appropriate. Wonderful job on the packaging, by the way.

I love this!!!!! Was really excited about- it came out incredible!!! Also, the Extorts (if I'm not mistaken were slightly before S.O.A. and had mostly the same material except two songs)- any plans to reissue the Extorts demo too? Thanks again- love the record!!!! : )- Miles.
