Silkworm's "It'll Be Cool" Makes Its Vinyl Debut on Touch and Go Records

Silkworm's 'It'll Be Cool' Makes Its Vinyl Debut!

It'll Be Cool - the ninth album from Silkworm - was originally released in 2004 on CD. Now, 11 years later, on November 13, 2015, Touch and Go will release It'll Be Cool on vinyl for the first time! 

You can pre-order your copy of It'll Be Cool on LIMITED EDITION WHITE vinyl HERE

(Also available on trusty black vinyl!)

Also, until October 21st (2015), we are offering a pre-order only bundle comprised of a limited edition Silkworm record tote together with your choice of a white or black vinyl copy of It'll Be Cool. The record totes are natural cotton with a silkscreened RED Silkworm logo. Pre-order the tote+LP bundle HERE

Be sure to order before October 21st as we are not printing any extras! 

Founded in 1987, Silkworm were: Andy Cohen (also in Bottomless Pit, and Mint Mile) on various stringed instruments with frets, Michael Dahlquist on drums and cymbals and occasional guitar, and Tim Midgett (also in Bottomless Pit, and Mint Mile) on bass and other guitars.

Bullheaded, crossbeam-chomping persistence: fourteen years, nine full lengths, many singles and EP's, innumerable tours, wild fluctuations in the public appetite for their work. That's not to demand that Silkworm be called forward for some sort of alt-culture valor award-- their concentrated, seemingly effortless forces arises from dogged pursuit of certain values that most current bands either don't care about or fudge in the studio environment, namely: tightness, heaviness, instrumental command. 

Silkworm do care, and don't/won't fudge.
